Rays recalled OF Mikie Mahtook from Triple-A Durham.

He'll replace Ernesto Frieri on the active roster. Mahtook had a brief stint with the Rays in April and was batting .242/.292/.357 with two home runs, 19 RBI, and four stolen bases over 39 games this season in Triple-A. He'll serve as a right-handed bat off the bench.

Edwin Encarnacion is not in the starting lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

In other words, the Blue Jays are going with the same lineup they planned to use on Monday, with Justin Smoak making the start at first base. Encarnacion is likely to be in the lineup for Game 2.

Jose Bautista (shoulder) will start in right field for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

Bautista was slated to play right field Monday before the game was postponed due to rain. He has been limited to DH duties since April 21 due to right shoulder inflammation, but has felt some improvement since a cortisone shot last week. We still wouldn't count on seeing him in right field on an everyday basis, but this is a good sign for the Blue Jays.
Jun 2 - 11:11 AM

Nationals manager Matt Williams suggested that Taylor Jordan could start Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

That's assuming he isn't needed during Tuesday's doubleheader. Jordan allowed three runs on six hits and two walks over 4 2/3 innings Saturday in relief of Stephen Strasburg. We'd steer clear of him in mixed leagues if he gets the assignment.
Jun 2 - 10:58 AM

Denard Span (knee) is out of the starting lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays.

It's not a big surprise, as he was set to sit out Monday's game before it was postponed due to rain. Span left Sunday's game with renewed discomfort in his right knee and Nationals manager Matt Williams said Tuesday that an MRI revealed swelling. He'll continue to get treatment on the knee and could potentially play in the second half of the doubleheader, but fantasy owners should have a backup plan in place. Michael Taylor will play center field in the first game of the doubleheader.

Tests confirmed that Stephen Strasburg is dealing with a left trapezius strain.

This matches the initial diagnosis from the Nationals. Strasburg won't throw until he's healed, but it's possible that will only take a matter of days. Taylor Jordan is the most likely option to replace him in the rotation on Wednesday.

Athletics optioned RHP Angel Castro to Triple-A Nashville.

The move clears a spot for Eric O'Flaherty's return from the disabled list. Castro didn't make an appearance during his most recent stint with the team.
Jun 2 - 10:27 AM

Athletics activated LHP Eric O'Flaherty from the 15-day disabled list.

O'Flaherty has been sidelined for about a month with left shoulder inflammation. He allowed 10 runs (nine earned) with a 7/5 K/BB ratio over seven innings prior to hitting the shelf and will look for better results in his return.
