Dodgers activated 2B Mark Ellis from the 15-day disabled list.
Ellis had been scheduled to remain on his rehab assignment through the weekend, but the Dodgers decided to bring him back early since Luis Cruz (elbow) is banged up. The second baseman is hitting second on Sunday afternoon against the Braves' Mike Minor.
Andrew McCutchen was scratched from the Pirates' lineup due to pain in his right knee.
It's not clear at this point how McCutchen suffered the injury or if it might cause him to miss additional games. The Pirates should offer an update on his status soon. Starling Marte will move over to center field to cover for McCutchen, while Travis Snider plays left and Garrett Jones right.
With a 4-under-par 36-32=68 in his final round of the Madeira Islands Open, Peter Uihlein recorded a two-stroke victory, his first on a professional circuit.
Uihlein turned pro exactly 17 months ago today and he's just 23 years of age. He posted 15-under 273 at Clube de Golf do Santo da Serra in Santo Ant'nio. His second-round 64 drew real-time rumblings that he was chasing a 59 as he was 10-under through 12 holes, but it failed to develop since he played his last six holes in birdie-free 2-over. For the week, he converted an eagle and 22 birdies against nine bogeys. Morten 'rum Madsen and Mark Tullo shared runner-up honors in this opposite event on the European Tour. Defending champion Ricardo Santos tied for 19th. After starting the week at 246th in the Official World Golf Ranking, Uihlein should rise about 100 spots thanks to his maiden title.
James McDonald (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Altoona on May 27.
That's assuming he gets through bullpen sessions on Tuesday and Friday with no issues. McDonald is slated to go four innings and/or throw 65 pitches for Altoona, so he'll need at least one additional rehab start before being activated. He's not a given to rejoin the rotation once healthy.
Mark Ellis (quad) could be activated prior to Sunday's game.
He was scheduled to remain on his rehab assignment through the weekend, but Luis Cruz is dealing with an elbow issue, so the Dodgers need some infield depth. Ellis was batting .342/.363/.452 with a pair of homers before landing on the disabled list.
Louis Oosthuizen has withdrawn from the HP Byron Nelson Championship, citing a neck injury.
Oosthuizen was scheduled to tee of at 9:57 a.m. CT alongside Brian Harman. The South African played his first 54 holes in 3-under-par 67-70=70= 207. With top 20s in two of his last three starts on the PGA TOUR, his game appeared to be rounding into form ahead of this week's event. If he's able, he'll try again at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.
Michael Bradley has withdrawn from the HP Byron Nelson Championship, citing a back injury.
Bradley was scheduled to tee off in today's final round at 9:21 a.m. CT. He played his first 54 holes in 2-under 68-70-70=208 for what was only his fifth made cut in 13 events. With a season-high T48 at the RBC Heritage highlighting his season, he needed to make the most of his week at TPC Four Seasons.
