Peavy has been solid in 11 starts since returning from the disabled list, posting a 3.80 ERA. He'll face the Rockies at Coors Field in his next outing. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:49 am

  • Doubront ineffective but still picks up a win
    Felix Doubront allowed four runs in six innings and earned the win on Monday facing the Angels.

    Advice: Doubront had allowed three over six innings, but allowed a single and a walk to lead off the seventh before departing. Reliever Edward Mujica allowed one of his inherited runners to score. Overall, the lefty gave up seven hits and walked four while striking out five. Doubront, who had battled a foot contusion, now has a 3.99 ERA with a 1.48 WHIP and a 35/16 K/BB ratio over 47 1/3 innings. He'll make a start at home against the Mariners next.

  • Wallace adds pinch-hit RBI double in a win
    Brett Wallace pinch-hit and delivered an RBI double in Monday's 7-0 victory against the Rangers.

    Advice: The run didn't matter, as Wallace's RBI double made it a 7-0 game in the eighth inning, but it marked the fourth consecutive time Wallace has pinch-hit and gotten a hit. He's operated in almost purely a bench role for the Padres, but has compiled a terrific .347/.418/.612 triple-slash line with three home runs and 12 RBI. The Padres have control of Wallace for three more years, and his performance in the second half of this season could help his case for more playing time in the future.

  • Lewis serves up six runs in loss to Padres
    Colby Lewis lost to the Padres on Monday, serving up six runs (five earned) in 5 2/3 innings.

    Advice: The Padres scored only twice through the first five innings, but they plated four runs in the sixth and chased Lewis from the game. Overall, the right-hander gave up seven hits and a pair of walks while striking out two on the evening. While 2015 has been an improvement on the previous season, his 4.50 ERA isn't too desirable. Lewis will look for better results in a road start versus the Angels. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:06 pm
  • Ross stymies Rangers with 7 shutout frames
    Tyson Ross pitched brilliantly in Monday's win, shutting the Rangers out over seven innings.

    Advice: Ross allowed only six base runners on three hits, two walks, and a hit batsman. It's only the second time Ross has been able to complete the seventh inning in his last 13 starts. He still has solid numbers though, owning a 3.27 ERA with a 1.35 WHIP and a 176/74 K/BB ratio over 165 innings. Ross will face the Dodgers at home next. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:04 pm

He's hit .296/.385/.514 with 10 homers at Triple-A Tacoma and boasts a career .266/.331/.505 line in his career against lefties.

  • Doubront has start pushed back to Monday
    Felix Doubront (foot) will have his next start pushed back until Monday.

  • Peavy pitches into seventh in win over Cubs
    Jake Peavy tossed a nice game in Wednesday's win over the Cubs, surrendering two runs on five hits over 6 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Peavy did walk three, but he was able to limit the damage the occasionally spotty control might have otherwise brought to his pitching line. Kris Bryant hit a shallow two-run single in the first inning to account for both runs against the 34-year-old right-hander. The owner of a 4.21 ERA and 1.29 WHIP, Peavy will dance with the Dodgers in a road start next time his number is called. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:07 pm

    Brett Anderson limited the Reds to three unearned runs in 6 2/3 innings to pick up the win on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Reds scored all three runs in Anderson's final inning. Chase Utley committed a fielding error which would have ended the inning, but instead put runners on the corners with two outs.

He now owns a 3.36 ERA with a 1.30 WHIP and a 99/39 K/BB ratio over 147 1/3 innings. Anderson will face the Cubs at home in his next outing. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:58 pm

    Advice: Ross hit a batter and allowed a double with one out in the seventh before departing. Relievers Shawn Kelley and Mark Rzepczynski allowed both inherited runners to score. Overall, not a bad outing by any means for the right-hander, as he scattered six hits and two walks while striking out nine. Ross owns a 3.42 ERA, a 1.38 WHIP, and a 169/72 K/BB ratio over 158 innings. He'll face the Phillies in a road start next. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:30 pm

  • Bettis strong over five innings to down ATL
    Chad Bettis pitched five innings of one-run ball to earn the win against the Braves on Tuesday.

    Advice: Bettis, in his return from the disabled list, allowed an RBI single to Nick Markakis in the fifth inning, the only blemish on his line. He scattered five hits and a pair of walks while striking out four. His 4.69 ERA isn't pretty, but it's weighed down heavily by a poor start against the Angels on July 7. Bettis will look to put together another strong effort next week at home against the Diamondbacks. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:56 pm
