Giants manager Bruce Bochy confirmed Monday that Matt Cain will start on Opening Day against the Dodgers.

It couldn't have been a difficult decision for Bochy. Cain registered a fantastic 2.79 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 193/51 K/BB ratio across 219 1/3 innings (32 starts) last season for the 2012 World Series champions. The 28-year-old right-hander is obviously an elite fantasy starter.

Rays placed OF Steven Souza on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 6, with a right pinkie finger laceration.

Souza suffered the injury when he was hit by a pitch on Sunday. The good news is that he's not dealing with a fracture or tendon damage, but he'll get some extended rest. The 26-year-old is batting .210/.301/.417 with 15 homers, 33 RBI, and 10 steals over 79 games this season.

Rays activated C John Jaso from the 60-day disabled list.

Jaso has been out since Opening Day with a bruised left wrist, but he's finally back to 100 percent. He figures to see semi-regular at-bats out of the DH spot, which makes him a sneaky add in deeper fantasy leagues.

Rafael Soriano tossed a scoreless inning Monday in his first appearance with Double-A Tennessee.

Soriano, who signed with the Cubs last month, allowed one hit and struck out three batters in the inning. The veteran reliever figures to make a handful of tune-up appearances, which puts him on track to join the major league roster after the All-Star break. Cubs manager Joe Maddon isn't going with a set closer right now, so it's possible Soriano could get some save chances in the second half.

Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rays.

Cain aggravated his left hamstring on Sunday and is expected to miss a couple of days. Paulo Orlando will start in center field.

Andrew Miller (forearm) allowed two hits in a scoreless inning Monday in his first minor league rehab appearance with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Miller struck out one batter in the inning. He might only need one rehab appearance before being activated. The southpaw has been out for a month with a strained left forearm. Dellin Betances has been handling closing duties during his absence.

Jake Odorizzi (oblique) tossed 5 2/3 scoreless innings Monday in his latest minor league rehab start with High-A Charlotte.

Odorizzi, who has been out for a month with an oblique strain, allowed just two hits and one walk while striking out six. I haven't had any pain for quite a while now so I was just looking to get through this healthy and make sure I got all my pitches in," said Odorizzi. He's on track to rejoin the Rays on Saturday against the Astros.

Howie Kendrick went 4-for-5 with a double, a triple, an RBI, and two runs scored as the Dodgers outlasted the Phillies for a win on Monday.

It's his third four-hit game in his last 10 games. He tripled in the first inning and scored the Dodgers' first run, then led off the fifth inning and came around to score on Yasmani Grandal's three-run home run. He added an RBI single in the sixth, finishing a home run short of the cycle. Kendrick is hitting .300/.349/.432 with seven home runs, 37 RBI, and 40 runs scored on the year.

J.D. Martinez hit his 24th home run of the season, setting a new career high and helping the Tigers bash their way to a win against the Mariners on Monday.

Martinez went back-to-back with Victor Martinez in the fourth inning and finished 3-for-5 with two RBI and three runs scored on the evening. He has hit consecutively in seven games, homered in three consecutive games, and has homered 11 times in his last 13 games. Named an AL All-Star on Monday, Martinez is batting .290/.344/.573 with 24 home runs and 58 RBI this season.

Nick Castellanos went 4-for-5 with a solo home run and four runs batted in to help the Tigers pound out a win against the Mariners on Monday.

Every Tiger, with the exception of Ian Kinsler, was hitting Mariner pitching on Monday as the club pounded out 19 hits. Castellanos started the scoring in the second with a solo home run, added a two-run single in a five-run sixth inning, and tacked on an RBI single in a four-run seventh. The third baseman is on a seven-game hitting streak, now batting .245/.289/.365 with five home runs and 34 RBI.

Jon Niese kept the Giants off the board over eight innings, earning his fourth win of the season on Monday.

Niese limited the Giants to five base runners (three hits and two walks) while striking out four. The lefty hit the kids in May but has racked up quality starts in each of his last six starts. As a result, his ERA is down to 3.58 with a 1.42 WHIP and a 67/33 K/BB ratio in 98 innings. The Mets, who have been attempting to trade him, couldn't be happier. Niese will take on the Diamondbacks at home in his final first half start.

Johnny Monell hit a two-run double in the ninth inning to help the Mets hold off the Giants on Monday.

Neither the Mets nor the Giants seemed very interested in scoring runs after eight innings, but perhaps Monell just wanted to go home. Finishing 1-for-4, he doubled in a pair of runs off of Santiago Casilla to break a scoreless tie. He later came around to score on a Juan Lagares single. Monell had accrued an RBI in only one of his other 20 games this season, back on May 10 against the Phillies. He's batting an unimpressive .189/.250/.243 with four RBI.
