The New York Yankees will have their captain back on Monday in Toronto.

Derek Jeter is expected to be activated from the disabled list and back in the lineup, manager Joe Girardi said.

"He's played three days in a row (for Triple-A Scranton) and from everything I understand he felt pretty good," Girardi told ESPNNewYork.com.

The 39-year-old shortstop, who has been on the DL three times, has played just five games for the Yankees this season.

REDDICK REINJURES WRIST

The Oakland Athletics lost more than their game in Baltimore against the Orioles Sunday.

Right fielder Josh Reddick reinjured his right wrist while striking out to end the top of the sixth inning in the A's 10-3 loss.

"I'm not going to assume that the (disabled list) is the case," Reddick told the San Jose Mercury News. "I'd say it's maybe 50-50 at this point."

The A's are not taking any chances, calling up Daric Barton from Triple-A Sacramento.

SCIOSCIA DENIES RIFT

Anaheim Angels manager Mike Scioscia is feeling the heat in southern California. So too is general manager Jerry Dipoto.

But one thing is clear: both are on the same page on how to turn around the Angels.

Amid reports that Scioscia or Dipoto -- or both -- could be on their way out at the end of the season, the Angels manager denies there is a rift with the GM.

"There's no philosophical differences," Scioscia told reporters before Saturday night's game in Seattle. "Jerry and I are certainly, as far as our baseball philosophies, in line."

Scioscia believes he and Dipoto can continue to coexist.

"You're not going to agree on everything -- that's healthy," he said. "You're not going to get a manager and GM who are going to have the same evaluation on every single player, and the same exact thoughts on every situation. That's just impossible. I think it's a normal GM-manager relationship. That's it. It's always been like that."

COACH EJECTED BEFORE GAME

Chicago White Sox bench coach Mark Parent, while exchanging lineup cards with umpires before Sunday's game with the Texas Rangers, was ejected by crew chief Jerry Layne.

No reason was given, but manager Robin Ventura said afterward that the incident went back to an unspecified play on Saturday, reports ESPNChicago.com.

The White Sox also had a pair of run-ins with umpires on Friday night.

Rangers batter Ian Kinsler took advantage of a ball that was trapped under some padding to race around the bases for an inside-the-park home run. Ventura complained about the non-call and was ejected by then-third-base umpire Greg Gibson.

RAYS' MOORE FEELS GOOD

Matt Moore is close to returning for the Tampa Bay Rays.

Moore, out with left-elbow soreness, hasn't pitched since July 28. He is 14-3 with a 3.41 ERA this season.

"I feel good, just normal soreness," Moore told MLB.com. "I feel like my chest and my back, that area, the cuff that gets normally sore, normal soreness today, so far. ... I think it's a good sign just waking up and having normal soreness in the areas I'm used to."

If all goes well with a bullpen session Monday and a minor league start Thursday, Rays manager Joe Maddon expects to have Moore back by early September.
