Chad Kuhl will make his major league debut on Sunday, potentially lining him up for a Saturday start at Oakland. His performance tonight would influence the Game Score projection; I'll try to update that afterward.

The Nationals scratched Stephen Strasburg on Sunday, which casts doubt upon his Week 13 status. Barring good news in the next 24 hours, he's too risky to keep in.

Chi Chi Gonzalez joins the Rangers' rotation on Monday at the Yankees, with a 47 projected Game Score.

Wade Miley rejoins the Mariners' rotation on Wednesday versus the Pirates, with a 50 projected Game Score. He's a "no" for me, though the Pirates' offense is cold.

Sean Manaea rejoins the A's on Wednesday versus the Giants, with a 50 projected Game Score. They're lefty heavy but I'd prefer to wait a week before activating him.

Juan Lagares, who landed on the disabled list with that partial tear in his right thumb, is doing baseball activity in Florida. He could enter rehab games in the near future. Assistant GM John Ricco said Lagares still will need to learn whether he can play on a regular basis before a determination of whether surgery will be avoided can be made.

Zack Wheeler is due to long toss in Port St. Lucie on Monday. It will mark his first time throwing since receiving the cortisone injection last week in New York for elbow discomfort. The Mets say Wheeler's surgically repaired elbow is structurally sound. It certainly appears as though Wheeler will not reach the majors until August, although the Mets have been noncommittal on a revised timetable.

Terry Collins said Jeurys Familia is likely unavailable Sunday and Addison Reed may not be available, either. Hansel Robles or Erik Goeddel may close on Sunday against the Braves.

Curtis Granderson and Asdrubal Cabrera both needed a day off. Granderson's legs are tired, according to Terry Collins. Cabrera, who never does, asked for Sunday off. At least they'll be fresh for Nationals series.

Tommy LacStella (hamstring) and Clayton Richard (blister) are headed to Triple-A Iowa for rehab assignments.

Joe Maddon is starting rookie Willson Contreras in left field for the second consecutive game after he reached base 3 more times on Saturday against the Marlins. He has a .500 OBP over the course of his first week in the big leagues.

Cleveland is the only AL team with an 8-game win streak this year. Indians have 3 complete games in their last 4 outings
