Daily Fantasy Baseball MLB Notables
- Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard is set to return to the starting lineup on Tuesday. Tommy Joseph has started the past six games, allowing Howard to “clear his head,” as manager Pete Mackanin put it. Joseph, who was called up May 13, recorded more hits for the month (10) than Howard (7) in 35 fewer plate appearances.
- Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain has enjoyed success against O’s pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez, going 8-for-17 (.471) with a home run in his career against the righty.
- Ryan Braun will seek career hit No. 1,500 with the Brewers.
- Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman has been reinstated from paternity leave, with the Nationals optioning Trea Turner to Triple-A Syracuse in a corresponding move. Zimmerman is expected to be back in the lineup Tuesday.
- Charlie Blackmon has reached base safely in 32 straight games, good for the second-longest streak in the Majors. It’s the longest streak for the Rockies since Troy Tulowitzki reached safely in 41 straight last season.
