Alex Rodriguez – Heads to Triple-A on Tuesday and aiming to return to the Yankees lineup on Thursday.  Put him back in starting lineups as soon as the Yankees active him.

Dan Uggla – 0 for 3 and sees his hit streak ending at 33 games.  During the streak Uggla hit .377 with 15 home runs and 32 RBI.

Edwin Jackson – Left his start Sunday night with a right hamstring injury.  As of right now Jackson is considered day to day but don’t be shocked if he ends up going on the DL.

Logan Morrison – Was sent back to Triple-A and is now thinking about filing a grievance against the Marlins.  While Morrison has been anything but great, he surely didn’t deserve a demotion.  He was second on the team in homers, and third in RBIs.  Something seems fishy here.

Jay Bruce –  Hit another homer Sunday and now has 5 in his last 7 games.  We consider this, Jay Bruce being Jay Bruce.

Jose Reyes – Not expected to be activated from the DL when eligible this week.  Not ground breaking news, I think everyone was expecting that.  The groundbreaking news would have been if he had returned when eligible.

Brian Wilson – Was unable to pitch Sunday due to back issues.  If this starts to linger, one would have to think that Sergio Romo will benefit and get the save opportunities.

Carlos Guillen – Back to the DL with a wrist injury.  What else is new….Right?

Carlos Zambrano – Emptied his locker after giving up 5 home runs in a game against the Braves.  I think Zambrano has struck the last nerve of the Cubs organization.  He has been placed on the disqualified list and was instructed to have no contact with the Cubs organization.

Ryan Vogelsong – 7.2 IP, 2 ER, 8 K’s and how has an ERA at 2.47.  Would anyone else be upset if Vogelsong won the Cy Young?  I know I would!
