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

PAIR OF ACES

It’s a marquee matchup on Memorial Day at Dodger Stadium when NL Cy Young Award winner Jacob deGrom (3-5, 3.72 ERA) pitches for the New York Mets against three-time winner Clayton Kershaw (4-0, 3.33).

Kershaw is 5-0 with a 1.59 ERA in six regular-season home starts against the Mets, although deGrom beat him 3-1 in Game 1 of the 2015 NL Division Series and also won the decisive Game 5 in Los Angeles. New York is coming off a 6-1 homestand, while the NL-leading Dodgers have won nine of 11 overall and are 19-6 at home.

CHICAGO CRASH

Cubs slugger Kris Bryant was cleared to travel with the team to Houston after leaving Sunday’s game against Cincinnati following an outfield collision with teammate Jason Heyward. Chicago manager Joe Maddon said he was told Bryant was hit in the head/neck area. “He’s doing OK,” Maddon said. “We’re trying to talk with the docs and find out exactly where we’re at.” The loss of Bryant for any extended period would be a big blow to the Cubs, who lead the NL Central by 1 1/2 games over Milwaukee. The 2016 NL MVP is batting .345 (30 for 87) with nine homers and 21 RBIs in May. Cole Hamels (4-0, 3.38 ERA) pitches the series opener against Astros right-hander Gerrit Cole (4-5, 4.11), who is 9-3 in his career against Chicago and leads the majors with 100 strikeouts this season.

POWER PACKED

It could be a good week for souvenir seekers at Target Field when the MLB-best Twins (36-16) host big league home run leader Christian Yelich and the Milwaukee Brewers. Minnesota tops the majors with 102 homers, including 16 from Eddie Rosario. Yelich has 21 homers this season and 52 over the past calendar year. The Twins have won six straight and 11 of 12 to move 10 games ahead of second-place Cleveland in the AL Central.

Oakland tries for a 10th consecutive victory when the Athletics face Mike Trout and the visiting Angels. The winning streak is the longest for the A’s this season but comes with a caveat — the club’s game against Detroit on May 19 was suspended (with Oakland winning) due to bad weather and won’t resume until Sept. 6. The A’s have won six in a row since.

ROAD SHOW

Cavan Biggio begins his first big league road trip as the Blue Jays open a series at Tampa Bay. Biggio got his first career hit and homer Sunday in his second game, with Hall of Fame father Craig and 10 other friends and family members in the stands. “I’ve always wanted to do what my dad did, ever since a young age, and finally here we’ve kind of switched roles,” Cavan Biggio said. “He’s in the seats now and I’m on the field. So that’s pretty cool because it’s everything I ever wanted.” Biggio’s big crowd was waiting for him as he left the clubhouse afterward, admiring a pair of souvenir balls from the game.
