After exiting Sunday's game against the Reds, Cano underwent X-rays on his injured left big toe, which returned negative, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
A. Mondesi - SS
Mondesi was removed from Sunday's game against the Twins in the first inning with an apparent shoulder injury, Joel Goldberg of Fox Sports Kansas City reports.
Mondesi got hurt on a diving play in the infield and was spotted holding his left shoulder while walking off the field. Considering the shoulder is the same one that he dislocated in mid-July, there's legitimate reason to believe the Royals may hold him out for additional contests. Before departing Sunday, Mondesi went 1-for-1 with his 43rd stolen base of the season, leaving him two bags behind the Mariners' Mallex Smith for the major-league lead.

J. Ramírez - 3B
The Indians are expected to activate Ramirez (hand) from the 10-day injured list and insert him into the lineup Tuesday against the White Sox, Paul Hoynes of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
After undergoing surgery Aug. 26 to remove the hamate bone from his right hand, Ramirez made swift progress in his recovery and looks on track to return before the regular season ends, something that didn't appear possible when he was shut down with the injury. The Indians were convinced to bring Ramirez back early after he fielded ground balls and took batting practice from both sides of the plate in recent days before advancing to facing live pitching Saturday. So long as Ramirez's return to action Tuesday goes well and the Indians aren't eliminated from playoff contention before the regular-season finale Sept. 29, expect him to start in each of Tribe's last six games.

A. Adams - RP
Manager Scott Servais said Sunday that Adams will "probably" be shut down for the season after hyperextending his knee during a collision in Saturday's 7-6 win over the Orioles in 13 innings, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Cano was removed from Sunday's game against the Reds in the bottom of the fourth with an apparent foot injury, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
A. Almonte - CF
Almonte went 3-for-4 with a triple, double and three runs Saturday in the Diamondbacks' 4-2 win over the Padres.
J. Gant - RP
Gant (11-1) was credited with the victory in a win over the Cubs on Saturday, retiring the only batter he faced on two pitches to close out the eighth inning.
K. Gausman - RP
Gausman (illness) rejoined the Reds and will be available out of the bullpen for Sunday's game against the Mets, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
