DFS MLB Optimal Lineups: May 30

Update: Ryan Braun still does not have full mobility in his neck. He will undergo treatment on Monday and could potentially play on Tuesday.

If Braun still doesn't have full mobility in his neck on Monday, it'll be hard to get back onto the field a day later. Alex Presley will continue to start in left field until Braun does return.

Rays reliever Brad Boxberger told reporters that he is ready to return to the club and accepting of whatever role manager Kevin Cash wants to use him in.

Less than one year after Boxberger led the American League in saves, it's likely Boxberger will return to a lesser role in the bullpen. With Alex Colome pitching lights out in the closers role, there is seemingly no reason to change that anytime soon.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi to reporters that Dustin Ackley has a torn labrum and surgery is a possibility.

After the original diagnosis of a sprained shoulder, we've now learned Ackley has a torn labrum. The fact that it's throwing shoulder makes it a higher probability that this injury will cost him the remainder of the 2016 season. Austin Romine will likely move into the backup first basemen role for now but the Yankees could possibly call up Nick Swisher in the next few days as well.

Roberto Osuna is unavailable out the Blue Jays bullpen on Monday.

Osuna has pitched in four of the last five days for the Jays so he won't pitch on Monday. Joe Biagini is likely the first in line for the save opportunity if it presents himself, Drew Storen if Biagini gets in any trouble.

Matt Harvey averaged his best fastball of the year in Monday's start.

Harvey's been bad thus far in 2016, but proved he's still got it after Monday's seven inning shutout. Harvey's best pitch was his fastball, which was at it's best it's been all year long. He worked on getting to the correct arm slot all week and it clearly paid off.

Kendrys Morales (finger) has returned to the Royals lineup on Monday.

Morales has missed a bunch of time during the past week but is back in the Royals lineup, DH'ing and batting fifth. Morales has had a dreadful start to the 2016 season and isn't the best fantasy option right now.

Darwin Barney is expected to be the Blue Jays everyday shortstop while Troy Tulowitzki is sidelined.

Barney has been excellent this season in a reserve role and it's won him a starting gig until Troy Tulowitzki returns. Barney lost out on time once Devon Travis returned and took the starting second base gig back. Barney has especially been good at home, hitting .408 compared to .188 on the road. Barney could be a bargain DFS play during home games.

Ryan Braun (back) is feeling better Monday and has a chance to play on Tuesday.

Braun entered Saturday's game as a pinch-hitter and followed that up by sitting out of Sunday and Monday's contests. Braun's resurgence has been a breath of fresh air and it's nice to see him doing this free of PED's. Braun is slashing .351/.424/.583 on the year and is absolutely fantastic DFS play.
