We have a 14-game slate in the majors Tuesday, beginning at 7:05 p.m. ET. There are a lot good matchups happening across the league that will not only have betting but also fantasy implications. Over the course of the day, we will be keeping up to date with the latest injury and lineup news before first pitch between the Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles.

We have a ton of phenomenal pitching matchups tonight with Jacob deGrom, Chris Bassitt, Carlos Rodon, Jose Berrios, Nathan Eovaldi, and Shohei Ohtani all on the mound. The Mets ace is looking to continue his historic season against the Milwaukee Brewers as his ERA stands at 0.95. Meanwhile, Rodon and Berrios will face off against each for the second time within a week. Lastly, Ohtani will look to rebound from a disastrous road start against the Yankees, with the Boston Red Sox coming to Anaheim.

MLB lineup and injury news — Tuesday, July 6th

India back in starting lineup against Royals

The Cincinnati Reds will have rookie second baseman Jonathan India back in the starting lineup for Tuesday night’s game against the Kansas City Royals. India did not play in last night’s series opener due to ankle soreness. The rookie will be batting leadoff against KC starter Kris Bubic. India is hitting .265 with 6 HRs and 32 RBI this season and averaging 7.3 FPPG in DFS.

Rays’ Margot expected to be placed on injured list

Marc Topkin of The Tampa Bay Times reported on Tuesday that outfielder Manuel Margot expected to be placed on the IL after suffering a hamstring injury in Monday night’s game against the Cleveland Indians. Topkin hypothesizes that top prospect Vidal Brujan would be a likely replacement for the injured outfielder. This season, Margot is hitting .252/.297/.404 with 9 HRs and 44 RBI. The Rays and Indians had their game postponed today and will make it up on Wednesday.
