The Rangers could place Ian Kinsler (ribs) on the disabled list.
He will have to show that his sore ribs will allow him to swing a bat soon, otherwise the club will put him on the DL and call up Jurickson Profar. Kinsler was originally hurt last Tuesday when he was hit with a ball while stealing a base and aggravated the ailment Thursday while getting out of the way of a pitch.
Carlos Ruiz left Sunday's game against the Reds with a right hamstring strain.
Ruiz hurt himself while running the bases. There's no word yet on the severity of the injury, but a trip to the disabled list would seem to be a distinct possibility. Humberto Quintero would take Ruiz's spot on the roster if a move needs to be made.
ESPN's Buster Olney reports that Jurickson Profar is in Arlington and might be recalled.
The club has him around as insurance in case a roster move needs to be made, likely involving Ian Kinsler (ribs). Profar got off to a slow start at Triple-A Round Rock this season, but he has come alive lately and is batting .278/.370/.438 with four homers and six steals overall. If Kinsler heads to the DL, Profar would play every day.
Carlos Ruiz left Sunday's game with an apparent leg injury.
Ruiz slowed up and appeared to grab at his groin as he went from second to third base in the second inning. The Phillies should provide an update on his status shortly. Erik Kratz took his place behind the plate.
The Boston Bruins will be without defensemen Dennis Seidenberg and Wade Redden during Sunday's Game 2 against the New York Rangers.
Seidenberg was ruled out by Saturday, but Redden seemed like he had a chance to return. We'll see if either player can make it for Game 3 on Tuesday.
Bryce Harper (knee) is not in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.
Harper is still feeling banged up from last week's collision with the wall, and his knee appears to be in the worse shape of his various aches and pains. He'll try to return to the lineup on Monday.
The Boston Herald confirms Rob Gronkowski's fourth left-forearm surgery will take place Monday at Massachusetts General Hospital.
Dr. Jesse Jupiter is expected to perform the procedure, with Patriots team Dr. Thomas Gill on hand. The surgeons will take "cultures" from Gronk's arm. If the cultures come back infection-free, a new plate will replace the one already in Gronkowski's arm and he'll begin a 10-11 week recovery timetable. If the cultures show Gronk's infection has lingered, "it's back to square one" and Gronkowski will likely miss regular season games.
