LINDOR LIMBERS UP Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor is set to begin an injury rehab assignment with Triple-A Columbus. Lindor is working back from a left ankle injury, which occurred near the end of spring training while he was trying to come back from a right calf strain. Cleveland manager Terry Francona isn't sure how long Lindor will be with Columbus before joining the big league club.
TOP OF THE TABLE Tampa Bay (12-4) takes baseball's best record into its series opener at home against Baltimore. On the mound for the Rays will be Tyler Glasnow, who is 3-0 with a 0.53 ERA. The big right-hander was acquired from Pittsburgh last year in a trade for Chris Archer. Tampa Bay has the lowest ERA in the majors at 2.44 — and the starters are even better at 1.47. In the other dugout, the Orioles hope Chris Davis is about to go on a long-awaited tear. Davis ended his record 0-for-54 slump with three hits and four RBIs on Saturday, then socked his first homer since August on Monday.
MISSING PIECE The Phillies will need to make do for a while without the biggest offseason addition to their bullpen. David Robertson was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday because of a sore right elbow. Right-hander Drew Anderson was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to take Robertson's spot. Philadelphia manager Gabe Kapler said Robertson will have an MRI on Tuesday. The right-hander has a 5.40 ERA in seven appearances but hasn't allowed a run in his last four. The Phillies signed him to a $23 million, two-year contact in the offseason.
