HOUSTON — Instead of playing coy Zack Greinke Jersey , which some predicted would be his course of action, did not hesitate in announcing that rookie right-hander Shohei Ohtani would return to the mound for the first time in nearly three months on Sunday.Ohtani (4-1, 3.10 ERA) last pitched for the Angels on June 6 against the Kansas City Royals, working four innings before being sidelined with a grade 2 UCL sprain. The two-way Rookie of the Year candidate returned as a hitter on July 3 and produced a slash line of .261/.333/.555 with nine home runs and 23 RBIs over 44 games entering the four-game series with the Astros.Ohtani underwent injections of platelet-rich plasma and stem cells in his elbow on June 7.Article continues below ...“We’ll obviously monitor that very closely and we’ll have a range, but we’re going to wait and talk internally just to see what he’s going to be able to do and how the game’s going,” Scioscia said of a pitch count for Ohtani. “Naturally there’ll be a range that we’ll want to stay in.“This is going to be fluid. This is going to be directed from a lot of input from our medical staff, from how he’s evaluated after every outing, and we’ll see the frequency that he’s going to get out there.”Rookie right-hander Jaime Barria (8-9 Paul Goldschmidt Jersey , 3.67 ERA) will start the second game of the series for the Angels (65-69). It will mark his 21st start on the season and 10th on the road. Barria was charged with the loss on Aug 25 against the Astros after allowing four earned runs and five hits over three innings, his second-shortest start of 2018. In two starts against Houston this season, Barria is 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA. He will make his first career appearance at Minute Maid Park.Left-hander Framber Valdez (2-0, 0.96 ERA) will make his second career start and third appearance for the Astros (82-52) on Friday. Valdez allowed one run on two hits and three walks with three strikeouts over five innings against the Angels on Aug. 26 in a 3-1 victory. He made his major league debut five days earlier in relief against the Seattle Mariners, earning the victory after surrendering one unearned run on two hits and one walk over 4 1/3 innings.Astros catcher Brian McCann will start behind the plate on Saturday following reinstatement from the 10-day disabled list. McCann has been sidelined since June 30 (right knee surgery).“We’re going to get him back in the mix right away,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. “I want to see his agility, I want to see his mobility, I want to see him hit with some leverage on his knee — all things that he’s shown in the minor leagues and he’s telling me that he can do.“His ability behind the plate to run a game http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-patrick-corbin-jersey , to control the pitching staff, the trust of the pitching staff will come back immediately. There will be an immediate, great feeling out of the pitching staff when they throw to him. But I am eager to get him back in the mix because he brings a lot of intangibles, he brings a lot of experience, and he needs to get back in the flow of things having been out so long.” A look at what’s happening around the majors today:BREAK OUT THE BROOMSThe surprising Rays go for their eighth straight victory when they try to become the first team to sweep Boston in a series this season. Tampa Bay is a season-high eight games over .500 at 69-61 and has allowed three or fewer runs in seven consecutive games. All-Star lefty Blake Snell (15-5, 2.07 ERA) pitches against former teammate Nathan Eovaldi (5-5) in the finale of the three-game set. “He really helped me with my work ethic and led by example,” said Snell, who is 2-0 with a 0.95 ERA in three starts against Boston this year. “He’s very special.”Eovaldi is 2-1 with a 2.89 ERA in five starts for the major league-leading Red Sox since being acquired from the Rays on July 25. Boston (90-41) has lost five of seven. “We’ve been good on getaway days and day games Randy Johnson Jersey ,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora said. “It would be a good day to put everything together, finish strong and turn the page in this stadium.”HOMER HAPPYKendrys Morales has homered in six consecutive games, tying Jose Cruz Jr. (2001) for the Blue Jays record, heading into their series finale against Philadelphia. Morales, with seven home runs during his streak, matched St. Louis first baseman Matt Carpenter for the longest run in the majors this season. The big league record of eight games in a row with a homer is shared by Dale Long, Don Mattingly and Ken Griffey Jr. The slumping Phillies have lost 17 of their past 21 meetings with Toronto, including six straight north of the border.NEW YORK BAGELSThe last time the Nationals faced Mets left-hander Steven Matz http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-a.-j.-pollock-jersey , they hammered him for seven runs in the first inning on the way to a 25-4 romp. Washington could have used some of those runs the last three games — all shutout losses. The Nationals will try to end their record skid of offensive futility at Citi Field. They haven’t scored since Ryan Zimmerman’s walk-off homer Wednesday night. Not since they were the Montreal Expos and were shut out in three straight by the Florida Marlins in 2004 — all three games were played in Puerto Rico — had the franchise been held down like this. The Expos moved to Washington the next season.THEN AND NOWInducted into the Hall of Fame last month, longtime Detroit shortstop Alan Trammell will have his No. 3 retired by the Tigers in a pregame ceremony. After that, touted rookie Michael Kopech takes the mound to make his second major league start for the Chicago White Sox.TRACK RECORDIn four games since he joined the Chicago Cubs in a trade with the Nationals, Daniel Murphy is 7 for 19 (.368) with two homers and five RBIs. He’ll try to go deep in a third straight game for the Cubs, who have 17 homers in their past 10 games. Success at Wrigley Field is nothing new for Murphy, who is batting .407 in 31 career regular-season games there — all but three of them before he joined the Cubs. Chicago is hoping Murphy can recapture the form of his postseason run with the Mets in 2015, when he went 9 for 17 (.529) with four homers in a four-game NLCS sweep of the Cubs.END OF THE ROADGiants catcher Buster Posey will undergo season-ending hip surgery Monday in Colorado, ending what has been a painful and frustrating year for the six-time All-Star. The 31-year-old Posey has been playing in pain and is hitting .284 with only 41 RBIs and five home runs — his fewest since 2011 Yasmany Tomas Jersey , the year before he won the NL MVP award. … Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (bone spurs in both heels) will not play at all this season. Tulowitzki had surgery on both feet at the start of the regular season. The five-time All-Star hasn’t played since July 2017, when he seriously injured his right ankle in a collision at first base.
