Joey Gallo is batting sixth in his major league debut Tuesday night against the White Sox.

That seems like a pretty appropriate spot in the Rangers' lineup for the 21-year-old slugger. Gallo was called up from Double-A Frisco on Tuesday morning to handle third base while Adrian Beltre (thumb) is on the shelf and he's worth a shot in most mixed fantasy leagues for his incredible raw power.

Kris Bryant will make his first career start in left field Tuesday.

Bryant made one start in center field earlier this season and has played three innings in left field, but this will be his first career start there. It's likely just a temporary thing, as Jorge Soler is out of Tuesday's lineup with a sore ankle. Junior Lake is filling in for Soler in right field. Meanwhile, Jonathan Herrera will play third.

Josh Hamilton is out of the Rangers' starting lineup Tuesday due to tightness in his lower half.

It sounds like the kind of routine soreness that comes with an extended absence from live baseball games. Hamilton has registered a 1.021 OPS in 22 at-bats since rejoining the Rangers. Consider him day-to-day.

Jorge Soler is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Marlins with a sore ankle.

No word yet on whether it's a day-to-day situation or something bigger. Junior Lake will start in right field Tuesday. Meanwhile, Kris Bryant will play left field and Jonathan Herrera will start at third.

Blue Jays activated C/DH Dioner Navarro from the 15-day disabled list.

Navarro ended up missing around five weeks with a strained left hamstring. He'll serve as a backup to Russell Martin and figures to get a bunch of starts out of the DH spot now that Jose Bautista is healthy enough to play in the outfield again.

Jordan Zimmermann spun eight scoreless innings in a 2-0 win over the Blue Jays in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader.

Zimmermann ran into a bit of trouble in the seventh by loading the bases, but he was able to induce a key double play grounder to get out of the jam. Otherwise, he cruised, scattering six hits to go with one walk and four strikeouts. Zimmermann has allowed just six runs combined over his last six starts, lowering his ERA from 4.88 to 2.88 in the process. He lines up for a start against the Cubs this weekend.

Tigers placed OF Rajai Davis on the paternity leave list.

Davis left the team to be present for the birth of his second child. He's permitted to be away from the team for 24 to 72 hours.

Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is scheduled to take live batting practice Tuesday.

This comes one day after he tested his left hamstring by running at nearly 100 percent. Puig doesn't sound far off from going out on another minor league rehab assignment.

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

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.
