Phillies manager Pete Mackanin stated Sunday night that he plans to get Tommy Joseph more playing time, at the expense of slumping first baseman Ryan Howard.

Joseph has 10 hits -- including three homers -- through his first 35 at-bats at the major league level. "We brought Joseph up here for a reason, to get a look at him," Mackanin said. "I can’t let him stagnate on the bench like (Darin) Ruf ended up doing, so he’s going to face some right-handed pitchers to keep his timing."

David Wright (neck) remains absent from the Mets' starting lineup Monday versus the White Sox.

Wright is still dealing with some neck discomfort, so Ty Kelly will start at third base and bat eighth against White Sox lefty Jose Quintana. Wilmer Flores is starting at first base and hitting fifth.

Michael Conforto is out of the Mets' starting lineup Monday afternoon against the White Sox.

Curtis Granderson is also on the bench with Chicago throwing left-hander Jose Quintana. Yoenis Cespedes will start in left field, Juan Lagares will start in center, and Alejandro De Aza is in right.

White Sox optioned RHP Tommy Kahnle to Triple-A Charlotte.

Kahnle gave up two hits and two walks without recording an out Saturday in a crushing loss to the Royals. Chicago's bullpen surrendered seven runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to fall 8-7.

White Sox recalled OF J.B. Shuck from Triple-A Charlotte.

Shuck will start in center field and bat fifth for the White Sox on Monday afternoon against Mets right-hander Matt Harvey. Shuck is a .262/.311/.332 career hitter in 860 plate appearances at the major league level and can go on being ignored in standard fantasy formats.

Ketel Marte (thumb) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment this week.

Marte was placed on the 15-day disabled list May 22 with a sprained left thumb. He expects to be activated when first eligible and would seem to be on track to meet that goal. "He’s swinging the bat," Mariners skipper Scott Servais said Sunday. "I think he’s going to hit in the cage with the actual BP thrower (early this week). ... That’ll kind of be the last test. If he gets through that, he’ll be ready to go out on the rehab after."

Wilmer Flores (hamstring) went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in his return from the disabled list Sunday.

Flores started at third base in this one. He's also expected to see significant playing time at first base while Lucas Duda recovers from a serious back injury. Flores has some power (16 homers last year) and is worthy of attention in deeper mixed fantasy leagues while he is receiving regular at-bats for the Mets.

Denard Span (hip) went 3-for-5 with a homer in his return to the Giants' lineup Sunday.

That bruised right hip apparently wasn't too bad. Span is now slashing .268/.358/.363 with two home runs, 19 RBI, and 22 runs scored through 49 games this season.
