Tigers general manager Al Avila told reporters on Wednesday that he expects Michael Fulmer (elbow) to be at full strength at spring training.

Fulmer underwent elbow surgery in September, ending his 2017 campaign. "He's thrown out to 180 feet with no restrictions and no setbacks, so right now he's on track to be 100 percent coming into spring training," Avila said. The 24-year-old right-hander finished last season with a 3.83 ERA and 114 strikeouts in 164 2/3 innings. Assuming he is healthy, he should be the ace of the Detroit staff in 2018.

Cubs placed LHP Mike Montgomery on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to August 14, with left shoulder inflammation.

Montgomery felt discomfort during his bullpen session Thursday, leading to the move. Tyler Chatwood will start in his place Saturday and could easily get additional turns while Montgomery recovers.

Indians manager Terry Francona said Friday that Trevor Bauer (leg) could return to game action in 4-6 weeks.

It sounds like that would be a best-case scenario, so Bauer making it back at all next month still looks to be up in the air. The right-hander is recovering from a stress fracture in his right fibula and is in a walking boot, although he did do some throwing from his knees Friday.

Rangers placed OF Delino DeShields on the 10-day disabled list with a fracture of the tip of right middle finger.

DeShields suffered the injury during Thursday's game. A potential timetable for his return hasn't been revealed, but he figures to be on the shelf for a while. Carlos Tocci should see most of the starts in center field while DeShields is out.

Red Sox activated 2B Ian Kinsler from the 10-day disabled list.

Kinsler missed the last couple weeks of action with a strained left hamstring. He had four hits in his first 10 at-bats for the Red Sox before going down with the injury and will return to his role as the regular second baseman.

Red Sox placed 3B Rafael Devers on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to August 16, with a left hamstring strain.

Devers just returned last week from the same injury but apparently aggravated the ailment. It's the third trip to the disabled list over the last five weeks for the young third baseman. How much time Devers misses this time around isn't known at this point. In the meantime, Eduardo Nunez should see the bulk of the starts at the hot corner.

Reds placed 1B Joey Votto on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to August 16, with a right lower leg contusion.

Votto has dealt with lingering soreness in the leg as a result of a hit by pitch back on August 4, causing him to miss some games and be pulled early in others. The Reds have decided to go ahead and DL the slugger and let him heal up. It's unclear at this point whether it might be longer than a minimum DL stay. Brandon Dixon should see regular starts at first base while Votto is out.

Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer writes that it's "unlikely" Leonys Martin (illness) returns this season.

Martin is recovering from a life-threatening bacterial infection that affected multiple organs. While he's doing much better, he's got a long road of recovery ahead of him. Greg Allen has been handling center field with Martin on the shelf.

Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer writes that Edwin Encarnacion (hand, biceps) "should be back when his 10 days are over."

That would peg his return date as Tuesday. It doesn't appear that Encarnacion, who is dealing with a bruised right hand and strained left biceps, will need any rehab games before being activated. He's sporting a .229/.317/.461 batting line with 25 homers and 81 RBI this season.

Welington Castillo (suspension) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte on Friday.

Castillo is eligible to be reinstated from his PED suspension on August 23 and should be back at that time. The veteran catcher belted 20 home runs over just 96 games last season and six over his first 33 contests this season before he was suspended. Castillo should be added in two-catcher leagues where he's available.

CC Sabathia (knee) is expected to rejoin the Yankees' rotation next week when first eligible.

The Yankees haven't mapped out an exact date for Sabathia's return yet, but it sounds like he'll be back next weekend in Baltimore. "He’ll throw his side, but all indications point that it will be right around that 10-day mark," manager Aaron Boone said. "Hopefully we can slot him in however we decide, again with those off days coming and then we have the doubleheader, so we’ll figure how exactly we want to line it up. But, we’ll make sure he gets through the next couple of days, his bullpen, his side and everything and we’ll go from there."

Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Thursday that he expects Kris Bryant (shoulder) to return before the end of the month.

Bryant has begun hitting off a tee and expects to take batting practice on the field sometime within the next few days. Maddon recently implied that Bryant's left shoulder might not be 100 percent even after he returns, but the third baseman doesn't see it that way. ‘‘I expect the same impact I’ve always had,’’ said Bryant. ‘‘I’m just going to go out there and be myself, and I know that’s pretty good to me.’’
