NEWS:Adam Eaton not quite ready yet.

Impact: Adam Eaton continues to rehab at High-A this week due to pitchers hitting this week at Reno. Eaton has yet to play center field for Triple-A Reno. It sounds as if he may miss the rest of May, but the Diamondbacks have decided to not rush him back to the majors until he plays the field for ten days in a row without any setbacks. With Jason Kubel dealing with injuries for the time being, A.J. Pollack will receive the lion’s share of the center field duties for the D’Backs.



NEWS:David Price injures tricep

Impact: David Price lands the DL and the Rays called up Alex Torres to take Price’s spot on the roster. Hopefully the time off will do Price some good and he’ll be able to bounce back after his mediocre first few weeks.


NEWS: Ross Detweiler to miss a couple of starts?

Impact: Ross Detweiler suffered back spasms in his last start and is in jeopardy of missing his next start on Monday. The Washington Post reports the decision should be made on Friday after giving Detwiler a day or two of rest.



NEWS:Austin Jackson injuries his hamstring

Impact: Austin Jackson hits the DL and Andy Dirks will benefit as he moves to the top of the Detroit batting order. The Tigers center field job will likely be a platoon between Don Kelly and Avisail Garcia.



NEWS: Andrew Bailey to Return Monday if no set backs

Impact: Andrew Bailey is set to return Monday for the Red Sox. Junichi Tazawa has been less than spectacular in his last two outing, so it looks like Bailey will regain the closer job right away.



NEWS:  Johnny Cueto to return Monday

Impact: Johnny Cueto returns from the DL on Monday and he’ll face the New York Mets. While nothing is official, Dusty Baker has pegged Mike Leake as his guy and Leake should remain in the rotation upon Cueto’s return. Tony Cingrani will likely be sent to Triple-A Louisville.
