A look at what’s happening around the majors today:

BACK FROM BLISTER?

Philadelphia hitter Bryce Harper could return to the lineup for the finale of a two-game series in Texas after an infected blister on his left index finger sidelined him for two games in Washington last weekend.

Phillies interim manager Rob Thomson said the infection had improved enough for Harper to be available off the bench in the opener against Rangers.

A six-time All-Star and this year’s National League DH voting leader, Harper started Tuesday with a team-best .326 and his OPS (1.013) finished second in the NL behind Paul Goldschmidt of St. Louis.

“When guys do DH, they tend to swing a lot more,” Thomson said. “I just want to make sure we don’t irritate it.”

SHOHEI STREAK

Shohei Ohtani is trying to win three straight starts for the first time this season when the Los Angeles Angels host the Royals.

The reigning AL MVP is 5-4 with a 3.28 ERA in 11 starts, hitting out 77 and going 15 in 60 1/3 innings. The 27-year-old right-hander clinched a 5-2 win over Boston on June 9 and a 4-1 win in Seattle last Thursday as he put up six shutout innings for his first scoreless game in a month.

Ohtani has allowed two runs or fewer in eight of 11 starts. His only previous game against the Royals was on June 6, 2018, when he gave up a four-inning run.

The two-way star had a big game on his plate Tuesday night, hitting two three-run homers and hitting a career-high in eight runs. Still, the Royals held on to a 12-11 win in 11 innings.

Ohtani crushed a 423-foot homer in the sixth and a 438-foot tie in the ninth, giving him the biggest RBI game of his five-year United States career. The AL MVP then set the single-game major league record for RBIs by a Japanese-born player with a sacrificial fly in the 11th.

Left-hander Daniel Lynch (3-6, 5.19) will be on the mound for Kansas City. He was 0-5 in his last eight starts before winning in Oakland on Friday when he gave up a run in five innings.

CENTRAL SHOWDOWN

AL Central’s top two teams face off again when José Ramírez and rising Cleveland Guardians visit Byron Buxton, Carlos Correa and the Minnesota Twins.

Triston McKenzie (4-5, 2.96 ERA) pitches for the Guardians against Sonny Gray (3-1, 2.09) in the middlegame of the series. Gray threw five innings of shutout last Wednesday in Seattle, his first appearance since he was injured on June 2 with a tight pec.

ENCORE

Tyler Anderson (8-0, 2.82 ERA) looks to continue a sensational start to a breakthrough season as he takes on Luis Castillo (2-4, 3.33) and the struggling Reds for the Los Angeles Dodgers in Cincinnati.

With his fifth team in seven major league seasons, Anderson almost threw a no-hitter last Wednesday night. He knocked out the Los Angeles Angels until Shohei Ohtani tripled for their first hit with an out in the ninth inning. The 32-year-old left-hander was lifted after 123 pitches. His previous career high was in 2018 with Colorado 109.

GOLD STANDARD

The Cardinals hope to have star first baseman Paul Goldschmidt back in the lineup soon after he missed a start due to back strains.

Goldschmidt was awarded as the youngest NL player of the week. He leads the NL in batting average (.339), on-base percentage (.417), and OPS (1.031).

Goldschmidt did not start in Milwaukee on Tuesday evening. The top two teams in the NL Central have two games left in the series.

“He’s going to experience it from time to time,” said St. Louis coach Oliver Marmol. “He usually takes a day, it loosens up, he gets treated and he’s back at it. That is our hope.”
