Here's a roundup of the latest injury news across the Majors.
Ronald Acuna Jr., Braves
Baseball's No. 1 prospect per MLB Pipeline hurt his knee when running through the bag at first base for an infield single during the seventh inning of the Braves' 7-1 victory over Boston at Fenway Park on Sunday.
After crossing the bag, Acuna's left leg buckled and he immediately fell to the ground, where he remained while being attended to by members of the Braves' medical staff before walking off the field under his own power. The extent of Acuna's injury is currently unknown as the Braves await the results of an MRI.
Acuna, 20, is hitting .265/.326/.453 with seven doubles and five homers in 29 games for Atlanta this season, displaying on several occasions the five-tool skills that made him the game's top prospect. More >
Clayton Kershaw, Dodgers
Kershaw, who hasn't pitched since May 1 due to left biceps tendinitis, will be activated off the disabled list on Thursday to start against the Phillies, according to manager Dave Roberts.
The three-time National League Cy Young Award winner threw four innings in a simulated game Saturday and played catch Sunday morning.
"I think he's fine to go deep [into a game], depending on how he's throwing," Roberts said. "It's great and I'm happy for Clayton [that he's] feeling healthy. Performing is one thing, but if he feels healthy and strong, we'll bet on the performance. We're playing better baseball -- and to add him to the mix, it's a real good thing for all of us." More >
Mookie Betts, Red Sox
Betts was scratched before Sunday's game against the Braves with left side tightness, and he will likely not be in the lineup on Monday against Toronto, according to manager Alex Cora.
"It was actually today from what he did inside right before the game when he was getting loose," Cora said. "He felt tight. Somebody came up and got me and I went to see him and was like, 'Hey, you're not playing today.' Let's see how it goes, let's see how he feels tomorrow and we go from there."
Betts is having a sensational 2018 campaign, slashing .359/.437/.750 with an MLB-leading 17 home runs, as well as 13 steals. More >
Miguel Cabrera, Tigers
Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said Sunday that Cabrera (right hamstring strain) could return to Detroit's lineup on the upcoming homestand. The veteran slugger has been on the DL since May 4, and he's hitting .323/.407/.516 with nine doubles and three homers in 26 games this season. More >
Khris Davis, Athletics
Oakland's slugging left fielder has been on the DL since Monday with a strained right groin. He took batting practice for the first time since then on Sunday.
"Like 100 percent," Davis said of how he felt after BP and running drills. He's slashing .235/.307/.497 with 13 homers this season, and is eligible to come off the DL on Thursday. More >
Yu Darvish, Cubs
The Cubs placed Darvish on the 10-day disabled list with right triceps tendinitis Saturday (retroactive to Wednesday). It marks the second time Darvish has hit the DL this season, the first being due to flu-like symptoms on May 7. The 31-year-old right-hander has a 4.95 ERA over eight starts this season, his first with Chicago.
Darvish will undergo an MRI to determine the extent of the injury, although Cubs manager Joe Maddon said "we're not overly concerned." More >

Andrew Miller, Indians
Miller was placed on the DL with inflammation in his right knee, the same knee that caused him to be placed on the DL twice in 2017. This is the second time that the Tribe's relief ace has gone to the DL this season, the first being in April due to a left hamstring injury.
"Just from talking to him and talking to the trainers, it's just not allowing him to be himself right now," said manager Terry Francona. "That's probably the best way I could put it. So we're going to put our heads together, and I don't know what the next step will be. We're going to try to get him to a place where he can be himself."
Miller has a 4.40 ERA in 14 1/3 innings this season, including seven runs on seven hits over 4 1/3 innings (six outings) since his return from the DL on May 11. More >
Madison Bumgarner, Giants
Bumgarner made his first rehab start Saturday as he works his way back from a fractured left pinkie he sustained when a ball was hit sharply back to him in San Francisco's final Spring Training game on March 23. The left-hander was dominant for Triple-A Sacramento against Albuquerque, tossing 3 2/3 hitless innings while striking out eight of the 12 batters he faced.
Bumgarner is expected to make at least two more rehab starts, though he said he could be ready to pitch in the Majors sooner if needed. More >
Martin Prado, Marlins
Prado, who was limited to 37 games last season with hamstring injuries, limped off the field with a left hamstring strain after reaching first base on an error during Friday's game vs. the Nationals, exiting the contest in the sixth inning. He was placed on the DL on Saturday and is expected to miss extended time. The 34-year-old infielder is slashing .194/.242/.226 in 24 games for Miami this season. More >

Zach Britton and Mark Trumbo, Orioles
Baltimore's closer took a big step toward his return from offseason right Achilles surgery when he tossed two innings in a simulated game prior to the Orioles' game against the Rays in St. Petersburg on Saturday.
"I felt, that was probably the best one I've had," Britton said of his simulated game, which featured a few players from extended spring camp who came over to Tropicana Field. "I think maybe it seemed like more of a game situation with guys behind me that could field the ball and stuff like that. So I'm definitely ready to start a rehab assignment."
Britton will likely begin a rehab assignment Wednesday for Triple-A Norfolk. The 30-year-old left-hander posted a 2.89 ERA in 38 games last season, a year after turning in one of the greatest relief seasons in history -- in 2016, he posted a 0.54 ERA in 69 appearances, saving 47 games.
Meanwhile, the Orioles have decided not to put Trumbo (right knee) on the DL, and hope to have him available to play as early as Monday.
"We're going to wait on him," manager Buck Showalter said. "Obviously he's worth waiting on, so we're going to wait at least another day. … I was talking to him in the dugout [Friday] and he was feeling better it seemed like every hour that passed." More >

Dexter Fowler and Greg Holland, Cardinals
Fowler left Saturday's 4-1 win over the Pirates after being hit by a pitch on the outside of his right knee. The 32-year-old outfielder, hitting .157/.276/.288 with five home runs in 43 games, is considered day to day but could end up requiring a DL stint. More >
Meanwhile, St. Louis placed Holland on the 10-day DL Saturday with right hip impingement. The former All-Star closer has a 9.45 ERA over 18 appearances so far this season, his first with the Cardinals.
"I wasn't pitching well, and I didn't want to use it as an excuse," Holland said. "It got to a point where I think it's affecting me on the mound. It's at a point where I'm not giving us the best chance to win." More >

Justin Upton, Angels
Upton exited the Angels' game against the Yankees Saturday with a left forearm contusion after being hit by a pitch. X-rays were negative. The 30-year-old outfielder is slashing .251/.327/.456 with 11 homers in 51 games this season.
Joe Panik, Giants
San Francisco's second baseman is slated to begin a rehab assignment Monday with Triple-A Sacramento as he works his way back from a left thumb sprain he sustained on April 27. Although the club initially thought he would miss 6-8 weeks, Panik could return to the Giants' lineup by the end of next week, which would shave two weeks off that timetable. In 23 games this season, Panik is hitting .267/.323/.389 with three homers. More >
Jordan Zimmermann, Tigers
Zimmermann (right shoulder impingement) reported to Triple-A Toledo on Sunday for what is expected to be a two-start rehab assignment. The 32-year-old right-hander has a 4.88 ERA in seven starts this season, coming off a career-worst 6.08 ERA in 2017. More >
Yoenis Cespedes, Mets
Cespedes took a significant step in his recovery from a strained right hip flexor, beginning a running progression on the field Friday at Miller Park before the Mets' game against the Brewers. He had previously only been hitting and throwing. The 32-year-old slugger, who has been on the DL since May 14 after initially hurting the hip on May 6, is hitting .255/.316/.474 with eight home runs in 37 games this season. More >
Dee Gordon, Mariners
Gordon took ground balls and did some pregame infield work prior to Seattle's series opener with Minnesota at Safeco Field. The second baseman was placed on the 10-day DL with a broken right big toe last Monday, and he's eligible to come off the DL on Thursday.
"It's calmed down, which is exactly what we were hoping would happen," manager Scott Servais said. "We needed to give it some time. Originally, I thought it would be only about 10 days. Everybody said I'm crazy. I still think it's going to be the 10-day period and you can still call me crazy, but I think that's what we're looking at." More >
Troy Tulowitzki, Blue Jays
Tulowitzki has been cleared by doctors to take the next step in his rehab from surgery to remove bone spurs from both feet, but is still "a ways away" from returning to the Blue Jays, according to manager John Gibbons. Tulowitzki, whose 2017 season ended due to a right ankle injury last July, has been cleared to run on flat ground. The 33-year-old shortstop hit .249/.300/.378 with seven home runs in 66 games for Toronto last season. More >
Bradley Zimmer, Indians
Zimmer could return to the Indians sooner than initially expected, according to Francona. The 25-year-old center fielder suffered a left rib contusion on May 15 when he slammed into the wall in right-center field at Yankee Stadium trying to make a play. Zimmer is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Akron on Saturday. Fellow outfielders Brandon Guyer (left cervical strain) and Lonnie Chisenhall (right calf strain) will also have rehab stints with Akron this weekend. More >
