Jean Segura (head) is not in the Mariners' lineup Sunday.

Segura went through concussion tests after being removed from Saturday's game versus the Twins when he was kicked in the head. The results of those tests haven't been revealed, but Segura will sit out at least one game. More should be known about his condition shortly. Andrew Romine will handle shortstop Sunday.

DJ LeMahieu (thumb, wrist) took batting practice Sunday.

It's the first time he's done so since he was diagnosed with a sprained left thumb and small fracture in his left wrist. LeMahieu is just two weeks removed from the injury and the fact that he's already hitting again seems like a nice surprise. There's no timetable for his return at this point, though.

Mookie Betts was a late scratch from the Red Sox' lineup Sunday due to left side tightness.

The Red Sox are calling Betts day-to-day for the time being, but if it's an oblique injury it's certainly something that could wind up sending him to the disabled list. Perhaps the team will offer more on the star's condition after the game. Blake Swihart has replaced Betts in the lineup and will be making his first start in the outfield since 2016.

Yankees sent LHP Ryan Bollinger outright to Double-A Trenton.

Bollinger was already optioned back to the minors last week and now finds himself off the 40-man roster. The southpaw didn't make an appearance while up with the big club.

The Blue Jays plan to use Joe Biagini as a reliever moving forward.

Biagini has started this season at Triple-A Buffalo and his first four appearances with the Jays in 2018 were as a starter, but he's always pitched better in relief and that's the role he'll have now. Manager John Gibbons suggested that Biagini could pitch anywhere from the fifth to eighth inning.

Yoenis Cespedes (hip) could begin a rehab assignment by next weekend.

Cespedes began a running program on Friday but isn't quite game-ready yet. He's already been sidelined for the last two weeks with a strained right hip flexor and will miss at least another week of action. Brandon Nimmo has been the Mets' main left fielder in Cespedes' absence.

Athletics recalled RHP Frankie Montas from Triple-A Nashville.

Montas will make his first even start with the A's and third major league start overall on Sunday versus the Diamondbacks. The 25-year-old has always had a big arm, but he has major control issues and wasn't pitching that well at Nashville (4.39 ERA, 33/13 K/BB ratio over 41 innings). He can be avoided in fantasy leagues.
May 27 - 12:27 PM

Athletics optioned RHP Chris Bassitt to Triple-A Nashville.

Bassitt was called up Saturday but didn't make an appearance. He's clearing out to make room for Frankie Montas, who will start Sunday.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Sunday that Seung Hwan Oh would have been his closer had there been a save opportunity Saturday.

Ryan Tepera received the Jays' last save chance and Tyler Clippard was called upon the few times before that. Gibbons apparently now wants to give Oh a turn and John Axford could be in the mix, as well. Someone could separate themselves from the pack, but this situation looks like a headache for fantasy owners right now. Oh has pitched well this year with a 2.35 ERA and 24/6 K/BB ratio over 23 innings. He's worth a shot in fantasy leagues if you're desperate for saves.

Todd Frazier (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Las Vegas in the next few days.

Frazier has been upping his workouts lately and not had any setbacks with his strained left hamstring. It's unclear how many rehab games he will require before being activated, but he's getting close to a return as long as he keeps trending in the right direction.
May 27 - 12:18 PM

Kevin Plawecki (hand), Hansel Robles (hand) and Gerson Bautista will join the Mets on Monday in Atlanta.

None of them are givens to be added to the roster, as the Mets still have some balls up in the air. Plawecki has been sidelined since mid-April with a hairline fracture in his right hand.
May 27 - 12:13 PM

Mets recalled LHP P.J. Conlon from Triple-A Las Vegas.

They needed some length in the bullpen after their relievers were taxed Saturday. Conlon gave up three runs over 3 2/3 innings in a spot start earlier this month in his major league debut.
May 27 - 12:09 PM

Mets optioned RHP Chris Flexen to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Flexen was roughed up for seven runs -- three earned -- over a two-inning relief appearance Saturday. P.J. Conlon will replace him in the bullpen.

A.J. Ramos has flown back to New York to undergo an MRI on his right shoulder.

Ramos felt tightness during an appearance Saturday and has really struggled of late. It sounds like there's a good possibility he'll be placed on the disabled list, but we'll have to wait and see what he MRI says.
May 27 - 12:06 PM

Mike Soroka (shoulder) is on track to begin a rehab assignment later this week.

Soroka was placed on the disabled list a couple weeks ago after feeling tightness in the back of his shoulder during a start, but an MRI came back negative and he will throw another bullpen session Sunday or Monday. It's unclear how many rehab starts he'll require, but the young righty should go back into the Braves' rotation once he's ready.
