JaCoby Jones (lip) is hoping to take batting practice Wednesday.

Jones was placed on the 10-day disabled list April 22 after needing nine stitches to close a gash in his upper lip -- the result of a beaning by Twins pitcher Justin Haley. The young Tigers outfielder should be ready to embark on a short minor league rehab assignment this weekend and could return to Detroit's active roster when first eligible next Tuesday.

Miguel Cabrera (groin) worked out and rode a stationary bike on Tuesday.

The veteran slugger landed on the disabled list for just the second time in his career on Saturday after being diagnosed with a mild right groin strain. He's eligible to return May 2, in time for the second game of a big four-game set against the Indians. "Miggy said he feels real good today," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus told reporters Tuesday. "My guess is, it will be just the 10 days."

George Springer (hamstring) subbed into Tuesday's game against the Indians and finished 0-for-1.

Springer was called into action in right field after Teoscar Hernandez suffered an ugly-looking knee injury on a collision with teammate Jose Altuve. Springer should return fully to the starting lineup on Wednesday after battling through some mild left hamstring tightness.

Ryan Braun (foot) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Tuesday's rout of the Reds.

Braun was lifted from Monday's series opener versus Cincinnati after fouling a few balls off his foot, but he only suffered some mild bruises. Even after Tuesday night's 0-for-4, the veteran outfielder is slashing .282/.378/.592 through 20 games this season.
Apr 26 - 8:44 AM

Buster Posey finished 2-for-3 with a walk and RBI in Tuesday's loss against the Dodgers.

Posey has hit safely in each of his seven games since returning from a concussion, although he has managed just one run scored and just one RBI. Nick Hundley made another start behind the dish Tuesday, although Posey did fill in at catcher in the later innings. Whether Posey is at first base or back behind the plate, as long as he is starting he is an obvious worthwhile fantasy option.

Drew Stubbs was hitless in four at-bats with a pair of strikeouts in Tuesday's loss against the Dodgers.

Stubbs is hitless in six at-bats since having his contract purchased from Triple-A Sacramento on Monday. He is filling in for Denard Span (shoulder), but the veteran looks a bit rusty and overmatched at the dish in his first helping against big-league pitching this season.
Apr 26 - 2:57 AM

Ty Blach allowed two earned runs, four hits and a walk with two strikeouts over five innings in a loss Tuesday against the Dodgers.

Blach was taking the place of Madison Bumgarner (shoulder, ribs) in what would have been a marquee pitching matchup against Clayton Kershaw. Blach still ended up giving the home fans a treat in the 2-1 loss, throwing 47 of his 75 pitches for strikes. Manager Bruce Bochy announced Blach will fill in while MadBum is on the shelf and so far, so good. He even contributed a double with a run scored in two at-bats to look like Bumgarner in the offensive department, too.
Apr 26 - 2:53 AM

Justin Turner finished 2-for-4 with a run scored in Tuesday's game at San Francisco.

The former CS Fullerton standout has hit safely in 11 straight dating back to April 12. Turner is hitting .345 overall on the season. While he has just one RBI over his past nine games and no extra-base hits over the past four outings, fantasy owners cannot complain too vehemently. Turner has just seven strikeouts in 71 at-bats while hitting for an extremely high average.
Apr 26 - 2:51 AM

Kenley Jansen worked around two singles while recording four outs Tuesday at San Francisco for his fifth save of the season.

Jansen threw 15 of his 22 pitches for strikes in his first action since April 19. He has recorded four outs in each of his past three appearances as manager Dave Roberts bucks the usual trend of limiting his closer to just the ninth inning. It isn't affecting Jansen negatively, as he has worked 5 1/3 scoreless innings over his past five appearances and he is 5-for-5 on save chances this season.
Apr 26 - 2:47 AM

Clayton Kershaw allowed one earned run, six hits and a walk with seven strikeouts over seven innings in a win at San Francisco on Tuesday.

Kershaw has four quality starts in five outings this season with the only exception coming at Coors Field back on April 8. He has at least six strikeouts in each of his five appearances while lasting at least seven frames in four of his starts. Kershaw continues to produce well for fantasy owners who looked to him in the early rounds.
Apr 26 - 2:44 AM

Ryon Healy was hitless in five at-bats with four strikeouts in Tuesday's loss against the Angels.

Healy had been displaying a pretty nice eye at the plate lately, posting just two strikeouts over his past 21 at-bats. The golden sombrero was bad news for fantasy owners on Tuesday, but Healy has been pretty productive recently. He has four doubles, a homer and six RBI over the past seven outings to emerge as a decent AL-only fantasy option.
Apr 26 - 2:38 AM

Matt Joyce was hitless in four at-bats with a strikeout in Tuesday's road loss against the Angels.

Joyce's average slipped to .157 after taking the collar, and he is just 5-for-38 (.131) over the past 13 outings. The veteran left-handed hitter is getting plenty of chance to iron out his issues at the plate but he doesn't warrant much in the way of fantasy consideration until he starts to show some signs of life.
Apr 26 - 2:33 AM

Jesse Hahn allowed just one single and two walks with six strikeouts over eight scoreless innings in a no-decision Tuesday at L.A. Angels.

Hahn dropped his season ERA to 2.08, and he has allowed just three hits in 14 innings over his past two outings. Hahn was disastrous last season, posting a 2-4 record with a 6.02 ERA and 1.64 WHIP over nine starts for the A's. He'll look to continue his resurgence in Houston on Sunday, but he faces an uphill climb against a good lineup while being opposed by LHP Dallas Keuchel.
Apr 26 - 2:30 AM

Mike Trout posted a solo home run in the 10th inning in Tuesday's game against the Athletics.

Trout's blast erased a deficit, forcing an 11th inning. The Halos ended up winning thanks to a Kole Calhoun RBI single, giving manager Mike Scioscia his 1,500th victory as manager in Anaheim. Trout has hit safely in nine straight and 14 of the past 15 contests.
Apr 26 - 2:26 AM

Kole Calhoun managed just one hit in five at-bats Tuesday against the Athletics but that one hit was the game-winning RBI single in the 11th inning.

Calhoun started off on fire, but he is just 5-for-41 (.122) over the past 11 outings to drop his average to just .215 on the season. Perhaps the game-winning knock will give him a little more confidence and get him going again. The RBI was just his second since April 8.
