DFS MLB Optimal Lineups: May 30
Jeff Mans

Red Sox prospect Sam Travis suffered a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the season.

After being drafted in 2014, Travis has made a rapid climb through the Red Sox system. He played this entire campaign at Triple-A Pawtucket, posting a .272 average with six homers and 29 RBI but won't play again in 2016. He'll have a long road back and will likely shoot to return by next spring training where he will attempt to make the club.

Carlos Gomez (ribs) will be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday and will be in the starting lineup against the Diamondbacks.

Gomez used the bare minimum days on the disabled list before being activated for Tuesday's contest against the Diamondbacks. Fantasy owners shouldn't be that excited for Gomez's return as he's hitting just .185 with zero homers and five RBI in 34 games.

Update: Outfielder Byron Buxton will be recalled by the Twins and join the team in Oakland on Tuesday.

Buxton was never comfortable earlier in the season as he was the opening day center fielder but after yielding a lot of success in Triple-A, is ready for his return. Buxton will likely enter the everyday lineup while Santana is out and could permanently stay there.

With Danny Santana landing on the disabled list prospect Byron Buxton appears to be the favorite to replace him on the roster.

Buxton didn't have a good start to his 2016 which led to a demotion to Triple-A. However, he's been excellent since being sent down hitting .333 in 28 games with six home runs, 14 RBI and four stolen bases while not getting thrown out once. The one-time number one overall prospect seems poised to breakout this time around and he may be up in the majors permanently.

Tigers pitcher Jordan Zimmerman (groin) is on track to pitch on Friday against the White Sox.

After missing just one start, Zimmermann is likely going to be penciled in for Friday's game against the White Sox. His groin has responded well to the bullpen sessions he's thrown so it looks as if it will only cost him that one start.

Twins have placed Danny Santana on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Santana notched two hits in three at-bats during Monday's contest against the Athletics before leaving the game with the aforementioned hamstring strain. The team wasted no time at all placing him on the disabled list. Hamstring injuries are pesky injuries and he could miss more than minimum days that the DL requires you to stay on for.

Update: Jason Hammel left Monday's start due to cramping in his hamstring according to the team.

Hammel was taken out after just two innings due to hamstring cramping. Hammel has had an excellent start to his 2016 season, going 6-1 while posting a 2.09 ERA. Hammer shouldn't miss anymore time and will likely make his next start.

Jason Hammel has left Monday's start due to an apparent injury. No official word yet from the team on the cause.

This is not good for the Cubs or Hammel as he's been pitching lights out baseball. That being said, Hammel's injury is being diagnosed as a hamstring cramp. He threw two innings, allowing one hit and striking out three before leaving with this injury.

Carlos Carrasco could be activated on Friday and start against the Royals according to the team's website.

Everything to do with Carrasco's rehab has gone to plan and he may join the Indians rotation by Friday. The Indians are rolling right now and getting a pitcher back of Carrasco's caliber can take them to a whole new level. Carrasco is a fantastic fantasy option from the moment he returns to the Indians rotation.

Angels have recalled pitcher Chris Jones from Triple-A Salt Lake.

To make room for Chris Jones, the Angels sent down Mike Morin. This is actually quite the surprising move seeing how poorly Jones has pitched in the minors this season. The only explanation is the Angels were in desperate need of a lefty. Jones has no fantasy value at all.
