- You can expect Phillies first baseman Tommy Joseph to be back in the lineup. Ryan Howard started Tuesday and Wednesday, but Howard went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts Wednesday against the Cubs. Joseph has supplanted Howard as the team’s primary first baseman, hitting .311 (19-for-61) with two doubles, five home runs and eight RBIs in 19 games.
- Rangers catcher Robinson Chirinos was activated from the 60-day disabled list Thursday. He had missed the past 53 games with a right forearm fracture.
- Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre was not in the lineup for Thursday’s game against the Astros, and he was set to be re-evaluated after leaving Wednesday’s game with a tight left hamstring.
- San Francisco catcher Buster Posey, who hasn’t played since Saturday in St. Louis due to nerve irritation in his right thumb, could be back behind the plate just in time for game 1 of the Dodgers/Giants 3 game series .

- Phillies Manager Pete Mackanin said Ryan Howard will return from his brief sabbatical from the Phillies’ lineup during the Cubs series. Tommy Joseph has started the past five games at first. Joseph should start again against Jon Lester on Monday, with Howard reclaiming first base for the final two games.
- The return to AL play means C.J. Cron, who’s basically splitting time at first base and designated hitter, will return to the Angels’ lineup. Cron has driven in 21 runs over his last 30 games.
- Gregorio Petit faces his former team this week. Petit mainly played for the Yankees’ Triple-A affiliate last season, but he has become the Angels’ starting shortstop with Andrelton Simmons and Cliff Pennington on the disabled list.
- Starting shortstop Ketel Marte is expected to be activated off the 15-day DL by the Mariners and be in the lineup for the first time since being sidelined May 21 with a sprained left thumb. Seattle is still without center fielder Leonys Martin, who will be out at least until Friday with a strained hamstring.
