Left-hander Alex Wood had a light outfield throwing session Saturday and said afterward he is good to go for his start Monday in Chicago. Wood was supposed to start Friday in New York but had the outing pushed back because of triceps soreness.

Odd start to the Tigers-A's game here at Oakland's Coliseum. Home plate umpire Andy Fletcher approached the mound after Jesse Hahn's first pitch. The A's starter, who began the game with one elbow sleeve, was made to put on another. Crowd booing heartily. And did so again after Hahn subsequently have up a leadoff single to Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler.

David Wright out with neck issue. Unrelated to back. He also will sit Monday's day game assuming he can play on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball.

Zack Wheeler is up to throwing 20 pitches off a mound per session. He is not imminently scheduled to be in a minor league rehab game, so we're probably looking at after the July 1 estimate for his return to the majors. Pitchers' rehab assignments in the minors can last 30 days (roughly six starts). Wheeler is returning from Tommy John surgery.

Here's a close-up look at the Yankees new matte road helmets. This particular one won't be used today or probably tomorrow; Mark Teixeira, still bothered by neck spasms but somewhat improved today, is unlikely to play until Monday according to Joe Girardi.

Austin Romine gets the nod over Brian McCann in the Yankees lineup today vs. Tampa Bay lefty Matt Moore. Brett Gardner also sits in favor of righty swinging Aaron Hicks. Here's the entire rundown:

Buster Olney @Buster_ESPN

Loney had a June 1 opt-out in his deal with the Padres, so San Diego doesn't have much trade leverage w/Mets.

Mets should have James Loney activated by Tuesday. They face left-handers Clayton Kershaw and Jose Quintana Sunday/Monday.

Mets have landed James Loney, I'm told.
