  • Andrew Miller slams door on Mets to earn save
    Andrew Miller slammed the door on the Mets on Sunday night, preserving a two-run advantage to earn his seventh save of the season.

    Advice: At this point, Miller is the Yankees closer and Dellin Betances has been relegated to eighth inning duty. Miller has been simply outstanding in pinstripes, he hasn't allowed a run in 8 1/3 innings while posting an absurd 16/4 K/BB ratio and converting all seven of his save chances. Rotoworld.com

  • Morrow superb over seven innings vs LAD
    Brandon Morrow pitched a gem against the Dodgers on Sunday, allowing just one run over seven innings.

    Advice: This is the third time in four starts that Morrow has pitched seven innings (he went six innings in his other start). Pretty impressive for a guy who had to win the No. 5 spot in the rotation out of Spring Training. Against the Dodgers, he struck out four, scattered five hits and walked just one. Morrow's only mistake came on a solo home run by Alex Guerrero in the fifth inning. Otherwise, everything came up aces. Through 27 innings, he holds a 2.67 ERA and a 19/6 K/BB ratio. As long as he stays healthy, he has the talent to put up numbers. Morrow will look to continue his sparkling run on a mountainous road date with the Rockies next Saturday. Rotoworld.com

  • Robetson pitches shaky ninth to pick up save
    David Robertson allowed two hits to the Royals on Sunday, but still managed to secure his third save of the season.

    Advice: Robertson has yet to allow a run this season, though he played with fire in his latest save attempt. With the White Sox holding a 5-3 lead, Alex Gordon hit a one-out single. Robertson then fanned Salvador Perez before allowing a Paulo Orlando base-knock to put runners on first and second. The former Yankee survived, though, inducing an Omar Infante grounder to walk away with his third save of the season. Through seven innings, he's compiled a 14/1 K/BB to go with that sweet 0.00 ERA. He could contend for the league lead in saves when all is said and done. Rotoworld.com

  • Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) not in Sunday's lineup
    Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Sunday night's contest against the Mets.

    Advice: Ellsbury tested out his hip during pregame workouts but was deemed unable to go. Chris Young will once again start in center field in his place and is batting second on Sunday. Ellsbury is expected to return to the lineup on Monday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:53 pm
  • Scherzer (thumb) not likely to pitch Tuesday
    Nationals manager Matt Williams said Sunday that Max Scherzer (thumb) is unlikely to pitch on Tuesday.

    Advice: Scherzer was unable to throw his scheduled bullpen session on Sunday due to his thumb still being swollen. The Nationals don't believe that he will miss multiple starts or require a stint on the disabled list. Tanner Roark is the most logical candidate to start in his place and makes for a decent streaming option against the Braves in Atlanta. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:37 pm
  • Carrasco hammered for five earned in loss
    Carlos Carrasco was hammered for five earned runs in 4 1/3 innings Sunday as the Indians fell to the Tigers.

    Advice: Carrasco had to be pulled from his last start after just 60 pitches due to general body tightness and he looked off from the jump on Sunday afternoon in Detroit, yielding two runs in the first inning, one run in the third inning, and two more in the fifth. Carrasco was struck in the face by a Melky Cabrera comebacker two weeks ago. Maybe he's dealing with some lingering effects, both mental and physical. The right-hander faces the Blue Jays at home next. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:23 pm
  • Gio allows six earned, Nats drop 5th straight
    Gio Gonzalez gave up six earned runs in five innings Sunday as the Nationals fell to the Marlins.

    Advice: Gonzalez struck out eight and walked just one, but Miami's offense pounded him for 10 hits -- including three triples. Gio now has a rough 1-2 record, 5.01 ERA, and 1.71 WHIP in 23 1/3 innings this season and the Nationals have lost five straight games. Gonzalez will try to get on the right track next weekend against the Phillies. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:57 pm
  • Mets ink Brooks Conrad to minors deal
    Mets signed INF Brooks Conrad to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Conrad made it up to the majors briefly with the Padres last season but spent the bulk of the year in Triple-A, batting .278/.349/.529 with 18 homers. He's merely a depth guy. Rotoworld.com

  • Giants/Rockies postponed because to rain
    Sunday's game between the Giants and Rockies has been postponed due to rain.

    Advice: No makeup date has been announced yet. Scheduled starters Tim Lincecum and Tyler Matzek will presumably be pushed back a day. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:52 am
  • Ryan Braun absent from Sunday's lineup
    Ryan Braun is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a routine day of rest for the struggling slugger. Aramis Ramirez is also getting a breather, as Gerardo Parra is in right field and Hector Gomez is at third base. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:24 am
  • Scherzer (thumb) doesn't throw 'pen session
    Max Scherzer (thumb) did not throw a scheduled bullpen session on Sunday.

    Advice: That's after the 'pen session was pushed back a day from Saturday. Scherzer, who threw off flat ground Sunday instead, is in jeopardy of missing his next scheduled start on Tuesday due to a sore right thumb, although the righty said the thumb is improving and he's not ruling himself out yet. "I can't say that," Scherzer said when asked if he'll start Tuesday. "Because I'm literally day-to-day." Tanner Roark would be the obvious candidate for a spot start in Scherzer's place. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:20 am
  • Ross Ohlendorf (groin) returns to action
    Ross Ohlendorf (groin) pitched a scoreless inning Wednesday in his season debut with Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Ohlendorf has battled a right groin injury since mid-March. He'll be stretched out to where he can comfortably handle two innings before the Rangers consider adding him to their bullpen. Rotoworld.com

  • Jay Bruce sitting out on Sunday
    Jay Bruce is not in the Reds' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He had been slated to sit before Saturday's game was rained out and remains out of the lineup the next day. Brennan Boesch is in right field Sunday in Bruce's place. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:26 am
  • Ian Kennedy torched for eight runs
    Ian Kennedy was blasted for eight runs in 4 1/3 innings by the Dodgers in his return from the disabled list Saturday.

    Advice: Kennedy, who didn't make a rehab start during his brief time on the DL, gave up three homers in a start for the first time since Aug. 16, 2013. Expect a better showing next week in a home start against the Rockies. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:36 pm
  • Justin Upton homers twice for Padres
    Justin Upton homered twice and knocked in five runs in a losing cause Saturday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Upton probably won't quite match last April, when he hit .326 with eight homers, but he's off to another nice start. It was his eighth career two-homer game and first since last April 10. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:32 pm
  • Tulowitzki hits home run in loss to Giants
    Troy Tulowitzki hit a solo home run in Saturday's 11-inning loss to the Giants.

    Advice: The home run was Tulowitzki's second of the season and gave him nine RBI. He also added a single to finish the game 2-for-5. While his .303/.309/.530 slash-line is impressive in its own right (though his lack of walks is somewhat odd), owners should be even more pleased that Tulo's showing no ill-effect or discomfort from last year's hip surgery. If he can stay healthy, his bat remains one of the best in the game. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:21 pm
  • Jacoby Ellsbury leaves Saturday's game early
    Jacoby Ellsbury left Saturday's game with hip tightness.

    Advice: He went 0-for-3 before exiting in the eighth inning. The Yankees are hopeful Ellsbury won't miss any time, but if he does sit out Sunday, expect Chris Young to fill in at center field. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 4:09 pm
  • Pads activate Ian Kennedy for Saturday start
    Padres activated RHP Ian Kennedy from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Kennedy missed his first few turns through the rotation because of a strained hamstring. He opted for extended spring training instead of a minor league rehab assignment and will make his 2015 debut on Saturday night against the Dodgers. The 30-year-old workhorse led San Diego in wins, innings pitched, and strikeouts last season. Lefty reliever Frank Garces was sent down to Triple-A El Paso in the corresponding roster move. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 1:53 pm
  • Max Scherzer had bullpen pushed back
    Max Scherzer (thumb) had his scheduled bullpen session pushed back until Sunday.

    Advice: He is still dealing with swelling in his thumb. If he is unable to throw Sunday, his scheduled start on Tuesday could be in question. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 11:30 am
  • Jay Bruce not in Reds lineup on Saturday
    Jay Bruce is not in the Reds starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Cubs.

    Advice: It's just a day of rest for the struggling outfielder who is hitting just .164/.261/.328 with three homers and nine RBI on the year. Brennan Boesch is getting the start in his place and batting fifth against opposing right-hander Jake Arrieta. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:06 am
  • Max Scherzer expected to make his next start
    Max Scherzer (thumb) is expected to make his next start on Tuesday against the Braves in Atlanta.

    Advice: Scherzer jammed his thumb on a swing during Thursday's loss to the Cardinals which caused him to leave after seven innings. While he's 1-2 on the season, the 30-year-old has posted a stellar 1.26 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 29/4 K/BB ratio through 28 2/3 innings with the Nationals. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 6:40 am
  • Braun goes hit-less in loss to Cardinals
    Ryan Braun went 0-for-4 in Friday's loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: Braun also struck out twice. The former MVP has yet to hit anything other than a single. With 58 at-bats in the books, the small sample size is growing larger day-by-day. Braun's slashing just .241/.279/.293. The extra-base knocks should come eventually, but his days as a middle-of-the-lineup star could be fading. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:20 pm
  • Ellsbury launches first homer of season
    Jacoby Ellsbury hit his first home run of the season in Friday's win over the Mets, finishing the game 2-for-5.

    Advice: Ellsbury smacked the solo home run off of Jacob deGrom in the third inning. It doubled his RBI total. He now has two driven in on the year. Math. Ellsbury has been hitting for average in the early going, but the power's been difficult to come by. Fantasy owners should be happy to see him finally get on the board. He hit 16 bombs with the Yankees in 2014 and while he's probably never going to match the career-best 32 he launched in 2011, a home run total between 13-17 is still well within reach for the speedy centerfielder. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:31 pm
  • Troy Tulowitzki absent from Friday's lineup
    Troy Tulowitzki is not in the Rockies' lineup Friday.

    Advice: It appears to just be a day of rest. Daniel Descalso is starting at shortstop Friday in Tulowitzki's place. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 1:20 pm
  • Max Scherzer jammed hit thumb Thursday
    Max Scherzer jammed his thumb on a swing during Thursday's loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: The right-hander pitched two more innings after the incident and said the injury "shouldn’t be too serious." Scherzer is fully expected to take his next turn on Tuesday in Atlanta, but he probably won't officially be cleared until he gets through his between-starts bullpen session with no issues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 6:49 am
  • Upton (quadriceps) expected to play Friday
    Justin Upton (quadriceps) is expected to return to the Padres lineup on Friday.

    Advice: Upton got a day of rest on Thursday as he's nursing a sore left quadriceps, though he was able to appear as a pinch-hitter. The 27-year-old is slashing .288/.328/.525 with three homers and eight RBI through his first 16 games with the Padres. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 5:43 pm
  • Scherzer solid over seven but takes a loss
    Max Scherzer pitched well on Thursday, but wound up with the loss after allowing two runs to the Cardinals in seven innings.

    Advice: Scherzer was narrowly outdueled by Michael Wacha. The Nats' right-hander hurt his own cause in the first inning when a wild pitch helped bring in the Cardinals' first run. The Cardinals grabbed their second run off of Scherzer in the sixth on a Matt Adams RBI single. Overall, Scherzer yielded six hits, walked none, and struck out four. Despite a 1-2 record, Scherzer has been fantastic in his first four starts, boasting a 1.26 ERA, a 0.83 WHIP, and a 29/4 K/BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings. He'll toe the slab in Atlanta against the Braves next. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 3:42 pm
  • Max Scherzer gives up two runs in loss
    Max Scherzer took a loss to the Cardinals after surrendering two runs in seven innings on Thursday.

    Advice: Scherzer isn't only lacking run support, but his defense hasn't helped him much either through four starts. He has a 1.26 ERA, but just a 1-2 record to show for it. He's fanned 29, walked just four and allowed no homers in 28 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 3:42 pm
  • Miller works a perfect ninth vs. DET for save
    Andrew Miller worked a 1-2-3 ninth inning for his sixth save, closing out the Yankees' 2-1 victory over the Tigers on Thursday.

    Advice: Miller struck out Miguel Cabrera, got Victor Martinez to ground out, then struck out J.D. Martinez to end the contest. That's about as tough as it gets and Miller breezed through it. Miller maintains his flawless ERA, is now 6-for-6 in save opportunities, and sports a 15/4 K/BB ratio in 7 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 1:55 pm
  • Ellsbury scores both Yankees runs in victory
    Jacoby Ellsbury went 1-for-2 with a double, two walks, and a stolen base while scoring both Yankee runs in a victory over the Tigers on Thursday.

    Advice: Ellsbury walked, stole second base, advanced to third on a ground out, and scored on a balk in the sixth inning to tie the game at one apiece. In the eighth, he doubled, advanced to third base on a sacrifice bunt, and scored on a Brian McCann ground out. Ellsbury has been an on-base machine in the season's first month, as evidenced by his .286/.384/.317 triple-slash line. He's a modest 4-for-7 in the stolen base department, however. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 1:43 pm
  • Ian Kennedy (hamstring) will return Saturday
    Padres manager Bud Black announced Thursday that Ian Kennedy (hamstring) will return to the Padres' starting rotation Saturday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Kennedy suffered a left hamstring strain in his first start of the 2015 season, but he only wound up missing two turns. The 30-year-old right-hander struck out 207 batters in 201 innings last season alongside a 3.63 ERA and is pitching for a big contract in his walk year. Odrisamer Despaigne is headed back to the bullpen. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:03 am
  • Kennedy (hamstring) throws side session Wed.
    Ian Kennedy (hamstring) threw a side session Wednesday.

    Advice: Kennedy said the session went well. The right-hander continues to work his way back from a left hamstring strain suffered in his first start of the season. Kennedy will likely be activated and start Saturday against the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:12 pm
  • Carrasco pulled early because he was 'tight'
    Indians manager Terry Francona revealed that Carlos Carrasco was pulled from Tuesday's start after just 60 pitches because he was "tight."

    Advice: Tito didn't specify which part of the body was tight, but he also didn't sound concerned at all about the right-hander. "It's a little ambiguous," Francona said. "I might have overreacted." Carrasco should be fine for his next scheduled start, but check back on his status later in the week just to make sure. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:58 am
  • Lincecum hurls six solid frames as Giants win
    Tim Lincecum allowed just one run over six innings to help lead the Giants past the Dodgers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Lincecum worked around five hits and three walks, relenting just once in the fifth inning when Alex Guerrero plated a run with a double. The right-hander struck out five on the evening as he picked up his first win. It's been a while since Lincecum was an effective starting pitcher, but he has been solid in his first three starts, owning a 2.00 ERA with a 1.22 WHIP, and a 14/7 K/BB ratio in 18 innings. Lincecum will face the Rockies at Coors Field in his next outing, which may prove to be a troublesome endeavor. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:47 pm
  • Bruce blasts grand slam in win over Brewers
    Jay Bruce hit a grand slam as the Reds outslugged the Brewers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Bruce sent a Mike Fiers fastball deep into the night to get the Reds on the board in the third inning. The homer was his third of the season. Bruce also walked and stole a base in the game, giving him two steals on the year. Bruce now has nine RBI to go with a .200/.310/.400 slash line. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:08 pm
  • Morrow serves up five runs in a no-decision
    Brandon Morrow yielded five runs in six innings in a no-decision as the Padres beat the Rockies on Tuesday.

    Advice: Morrow allowed six hits and a walk but the Rockies were able to arrange them well enough to plate five runs. Morrow struck out three on the evening in what was the worst of his three starts to begin the season. The right-hander has a 3.15 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP, and a 15/5 K/BB ratio in 20 innings. Morrow still hasn't gotten a decision; he'll hope for a win against the Dodgers on Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:00 pm
  • Carlos Carrasco earns win in return to mound
    Carlos Carrasco struck out eight while allowing one run over five innings in the Indians' 6-2 win over the White Sox Tuesday.

    Advice: Carrasco gave up just four hits without walking a batter on the evening. The lone damage against him was a first inning solo homer by Jose Abreu. With some lingering concerns about his health -- the start was his first since getting hit in the jaw by a comebacker last week -- the Indians limited him to 60 pitches, but he was dominant enough that he could have gone deeper. He should go deeper his next time out, which will come Monday against the Royals. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:49 pm
  • Miller records a one-out save against Tigers
    Andrew Miller recorded just one out to earn his fifth save of the season on Tuesday facing the Tigers.

    Advice: Chris Martin started the ninth inning with a 5-1 lead and got two quick outs. After allowing a single to J.D. Martinez and a double to Yoenis Cespedes, however, Miller had to be brought in. Miller walked Nick Castellanos to load the bases, then walked Rajai Davis to force in a run. With the tying run on base, the lefty was able to fan Jose Iglesias to end the game. Miller is 5-for-5 in save chances with a 13/4 K/BB ratio in 6 1/3 innings so far this season. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:17 pm
  • Gonzalez takes no-decision in 6 IP vs. Cards
    Gio Gonzalez tossed six shutout innings in a no-decision as the Nationals beat the Cardinals 2-1 in 10 innings on Tuesday.

    Advice: Gonzalez allowed 12 base runners -- eight on hits, four on walks -- but the Cardinals couldn't bring any of them home against the lefty. Gonzalez struck out four on the evening. Though Tuesday's results are good, Gonzalez's continued issue with walks is concerning. He has walked 10 in 18 1/3 innings to begin the season. He'll try to right his ship in his next start in Miami against the Marlins. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:06 pm
  • Justin Upton exits in fourth inning
    Justin Upton left Monday's game versus the Rockies in the fourth inning.

    Advice: It's certainly possible that the Padres were just being careful here since they had a big lead, as Upton was returning to the lineup after missing a game with a sore quad. The club should give an update on his status after the game. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 7:47 pm
  • Kennedy 'looked good' in extended spring game
    Padres manager Bud Black said that Ian Kennedy (hamstring) "looked good" during an 81-pitch appearance in an extended spring training game Monday.

    Advice: "He looked good, [threw] all his pitches," Black said. "He had a few strikeouts. They nicked him for a couple runs, but overall he's throwing the ball good, no issues with the hamstring." Black wouldn't officially confirm that Kennedy was slated to rejoin the rotation on Saturday against the Dodgers when first eligible, but all signs point to it happening. Odrisamer Despaigne will head back to the bullpen. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 7:10 pm
  • Braun slugs homer, but Brewers fall to Reds
    Ryan Braun provided the Brewers their only run with a ninth-inning solo home run in Monday's loss to the Reds.

    Advice: The Brewers entered the bottom of the ninth trailing 6-0, so Braun's solo homer -- his first of the season -- off of Burke Badenhop barely made a dent. Braun has been off to a slow start this season, currently slashing .238/.273/.310 in 44 trips to the dish. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 6:47 pm
  • Justin Upton (quad) returns to Padres' lineup
    Justin Upton (quad) is back in the Padres' lineup Monday.

    Advice: Upton missed Sunday's game with a minor quad ailment, but he tested things out prior to Monday's contest and was cleared to return. The outfielder sports a .326/.373/.630 batting line with three home runs in the early going this season. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 2:43 pm
  • Tulowitzki goes hit-less in loss to Dodgers
    Troy Tulowitzki did not record a hit in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Tulo ended the game 0-for-3. He shouldn't hang his head, though, as the Dodgers combined to hold the Rockies to just four hits in the contest. Even with the uneventful day at the park, Tulowitzki's still hitting .326/.340/.543 with one home run, seven RBI and eight runs scored. As always, if Tulowitzki can remain healthy, he will be one of the top offensive producers in baseball. To this point, his hip has not started barking at him. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 19, 5:22 pm
  • Miller strikes out three Rays for 4th save
    Andrew Miller worked around a leadoff double with three consecutive strikeouts to earn his fourth save of the season in Sunday's win against the Rays.

    Advice: Protecting a two-run lead in the ninth inning, Miller allowed a leadoff double to Ryan Brett, but bounced back to strike out Rene Rivera, Logan Forsythe, and Steven Souza to end the contest. Miller remains unscored upon with a 12/2 K/BB ratio in six innings. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 19, 1:54 pm
  • Justin Upton (quad) not in Sunday's lineup
    Justin Upton (quad) is not in the Padres' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Upton tweaked his quad in the ninth inning Saturday but remained in the game and even doubled in the 10th. He'll be fine but needs a day or two of rest. Will Venable is handling left field Sunday. The Padres are also going with Yangervis Solarte over Yonder Alonso at first base and Clint Barmes over Alexi Amarista at shortstop. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 19, 9:09 am
  • Carlos Carrasco to start on Tuesday instead
    Carlos Carrasco (jaw) has had his next start pushed back from Monday to Tuesday.

    Advice: He hasn't had a setback with his bruised jaw, but rather the Indians have just decided to keep Trevor Bauer on regular rest and flip-flop the order of the two. Carrasco, of course, had to leave his last outing after being hit in the side of the face with a comebacker, but he escaped serious injury. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 19, 8:05 am
  • Braun leads off with pair of singles
    In his first career start leading off, Ryan Braun hit two singles against the Pirates.

    Advice: Braun finished the game 2-for-3. While the singles are nice, they marked a continuation of an odd start for Braun. After smacking 30 doubles and 19 home runs last season, Braun has yet to notch his first extra-base hit of the 2015 season. The power should come eventually, but it should be remembered that the former MVP underwent experimental thumb surgery in October. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 18, 7:07 pm
  • Justin Upton day-to-day due to quad strain
    Justin Upton is day-to-day with a strained quad.

    Advice: It's unclear when the injury occurred as Upton never left Saturday's game against the Cubs. Upton has been his usual productive self this season, hitting .326 with three home runs and eight RBI. Will Venable could see time in left field if Upton has to sit out a few games. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 18, 3:43 pm
  • Ryan Braun hitting leadoff on Saturday
    Ryan Braun is serving as the Brewers leadoff hitter for the first time in his career on Saturday.

    Advice: Braun has struggled in the early going, slashing just .226/.250/.226, so perhaps the move was made to try to get him going. With Carlos Gomez sidelined, the Brewers are in desperate need of a spark atop their lineup. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 18, 12:48 pm
  • Miller notches four-out save vs. Rays
    Andrew Miller notched a four-out save in Friday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Miller came on with two outs in the bottom of the eighth and got Rene Rivera to fly out before giving up a leadoff infield single to Logan Forysthe in the ninth. However, he struck out the next three batters he faced to lock down the win. Miller now has three saves on the year and has allowed just one hit over five scoreless innings to go along with a 9/2 K/BB ratio. Dellin Betances has shown better control in his last two outings, but Miller still looks like the favorite for saves in this bullpen. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 17, 8:33 pm
  • Max Scherzer dominates in win over Phillies
    Max Scherzer dominated the Phillies on Friday, allowing just one run over eight innings in a 7-2 victory.

    Advice: Scherzer cruised for the most part, giving up just four hits to go along with nine strikeouts and no walks. The only run scored on a ground out from Freddy Galvis in the third. The high-priced right-hander has been as advertised thus far, putting up a 0.83 ERA and 25/4 K/BB ratio in 21 2/3 innings across his first three starts with the Nationals. He's a no-doubt fantasy ace. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 17, 7:12 pm
  • Kennedy (hamstring) to appear in ext. spring
    Ian Kennedy (hamstring) will throw 75-90 pitches in an extended spring training game on Monday.

    Advice: He was cleared for game action after getting through a bullpen session Friday with no issues. That the Padres have decided to give him an extended spring training start rather than send him on an official rehab assignment should be irrelevant. Kennedy will be eligible for activation five days after Monday's appearance and should be penciled in to rejoin the rotation on April 25 versus the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com
