  • Patrick Corbin wins in Tommy John return
    In his return from Tommy John surgery, Patrick Corbin pitched five innings of two-run ball and recorded a win over the Rockies on Saturday.

    Advice: Corbin allowed eight hits, three for extra bases, but he was able to spread them around enough to leave with a lead. It helped a lot that he walked no one. His fastball was consistently in the low-90s, and 56 of his 76 pitches were strikes. Corbin isn't a recommended mixed-league pitcher just yet, but he definitely has the ability. He's well worth the flier in deeper leagues.

  • Hector Santiago goes seven scoreless in win
    Hector Santiago blanked the Rangers for seven innings, allowing just three hits, as the Angels rolled to a 13-0 win on Saturday.

    Advice: It was an easy win for Santiago, but it's still impressive that he was able to thrive despite some long waits. He's allowed a total of two runs in his last three starts, and his ERA is all of the way down to 2.40. It might well earn him a spot on the All-Star team.
    Yesterday, 10:23 pm
  • Wandy Rodriguez gives up five runs to Angels
    Wandy Rodriguez gave up five runs in five innings Saturday in a loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Rodriguez managed to survive the Orioles earlier in the week, but he's given up 28 hits and eight walks over 14 innings in his last three starts. The Rangers will stick with him, but AL-only leaguers don't have as much reason to do so.
    Yesterday, 10:21 pm
  • Nelson can't manage quality start vs Reds
    Jimmy Nelson tossed 5 2/3 innings of three-run ball in Saturday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Nelson struck out five and walked one, with the home run ball serving as his nemesis. Marlon Byrd and Ivan De Jesus Jr. took him deep for solo shots in the second and fifth innings, respectively, with the third run on his line coming across on a Byrd RBI single in the sixth inning. With the start under his belt, Nelson's worked his numbers to a completely average 4.50 ERA and 1.31 WHIP, plus an 83/36 K/BB ratio over 102 innings. Up next on the docket, a road start against the Dodgers.
    Yesterday, 8:21 pm
  • Blanton allows four runs to Twins in 5 IP
    Joe Blanton surrendered four runs on nine hits in five innings of work against the Twins on Saturday.

    Advice: Three of those four runs scored in the first inning, when Blanton served up a two-run homer to Joe Mauer and an RBI out to Aaron Hicks. He settled down after the initial hiccup and finished with four strikeouts and no walks. Pitching between the bullpen and the rotation, Blanton is the owner of a 3.74 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and a 30/7 K/BB ratio over 33 2/3 innings. Up next on the schedule, a Thursday afternoon home date with the Rays.
    Yesterday, 8:00 pm
  • Greinke holds Mets to four hits in seven IP
    Zach Greinke continued his run of dominance in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Mets, throwing seven innings of shutout ball while allowing just four hits.

    Advice: With the win, Greinke improved to 7-2 on the year. He struck out four without walking a batter and now carries a 1.48 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 97/20 K/BB ratio across 115 1/3 innings. There's not much we can say that the numbers don't say themselves. Up next for Greinke's slicing and dicing pleasure, the Philadelphia Phillies.

  • Correia crushed for nine runs in 3 1/3 IP
    Kevin Correia was hit early and often in Saturday's loss to the Braves, yielding nine runs on 10 hits over 3 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Correia found himself in trouble almost immediately, starting the game in single-double-walk fashion. Four runs would come in to score on a pair of RBI singles and an RBI fielder's choice before the inning ended, and the Braves would put up another four-run frame in the fourth to end his evening. He entered the game holding a 3.60 ERA and 1.65 WHIP over his first four starts with the Phillies, but following Saturday's debacle, he's now allowed five or more runs in three of his five starts.
    Yesterday, 7:24 pm
  • Atchison joins Twins on minor league deal
    Twins signed RHP Scott Atchison to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Atchison posted a 6.86 ERA in 23 games before getting released by the Indians last week. The 39-year-old has logged 298 appearances over nine big league seasons.

  • Patrick Corbin activated from 60-day DL
    Diamondbacks activated LHP Patrick Corbin (elbow) from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Corbin didn't pitch past the sixth inning in any of his rehab starts and we wouldn't expect him to Saturday against the Rockies. The 25-year-old was an All-Star in 2013 but struggled down the stretch with a 5.19 ERA over his last 13 starts. Fantasy owners should use a wait and see approach with the young left-hander.
    Yesterday, 4:21 pm
  • Chi Chi Gonzalez sent back to Triple-A
    Rangers optioned RHP Chi Chi Gonzalez to Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: The Rangers don't need him now that Matt Harrison is off the disabled list. Though it didn't last as long as he hoped, Gonzalez's first stint in the big leagues was a success. In seven starts, the right-hander posted a 3.74 ERA while limiting opponents to a .220 batting average. He even threw a shutout June 5 at Kansas City. He'll be back with Texas at some point this year.

  • Rangers call Ranaudo up from Round Rock
    Rangers recalled RHP Anthony Ranaudo from Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Ranaudo will serve as the Rangers' long man with Yovani Gallardo set to start Tuesday and Sunday leading up to the All-Star break. Matt Harrison will make his season debut Wednesday against Arizona. Rookie Chi Chi Gonzalez was sent down to Round Rock in the corresponding roster move.
    Yesterday, 2:42 pm
  • Tillman hit hard again in loss to White Sox
    Chris Tillman was hit hard once again in Saturday's loss to the White Sox, allowing two runs on 10 hits in his 4 2/3 innings of work.

    Advice: Tillman recorded four strikeouts on the afternoon while walking only one. The right-hander continues to have a very disappointing season, registering a 5.57 ERA, 4.60 xFIP and 60/37 K/BB ratio over 84 innings. He'll attempt to turn things around on Friday when he takes on the Nationals.
    Yesterday, 2:05 pm
  • Buchholz gives up one run in CG win over HOU
    Clay Buchholz allowed one run in a complete-game victory over the Astros on Saturday.

    Advice: It was his ninth career complete game and his first since last August 31. Buchholz went into the top of the ninth with a chance at seventh career shutout, but Luis Valbuena hit a two-out RBI single. He fanned eight and walked none in the victory. Buchholz has been on quite the roll of late, allowing just three earned runs combined over his last four starts. His ERA is down to 3.27 for the year.
    Yesterday, 1:51 pm
  • Price fans seven in victory over Blue Jays
    David Price racked up seven strikeouts over seven strong innings in Saturday's victory over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: The All-Star southpaw allowed just one run on eight hits and a walk over his seven frames. The only blemish against him on the afternoon was a solo homer off the bat of Kevin Pillar in the fifth inning. The clear ace of the Tigers staff, and pending free agent, has been terrific again this season, registering a 2.54 ERA and 107/22 K/BB ratio through 117 innings. He'll look to continue that dominance when he takes on the Twins in Minnesota on Thursday.

  • Betances blows save, gets win Saturday
    Dellin Betances blew a save Saturday against the Rays, but the Yankees eventually walked off with a 3-2 victory.

    Advice: Asked to get a four-out save, Betances retired Evan Longoria to end the top of the eighth inning, but he allowed a single to James Loney to begin the ninth before Steven Souza took him deep for a game-tying two-run homer. It was his first home run allowed since last August 13. The Yankees went on to win 3-2 in the bottom of the ninth after Brad Boxberger couldn't handle a sacrifice bunt, so Betances actually ended up with the victory. This was his second blown save in nine chances this season.
    Yesterday, 1:07 pm
  • Cardinals recall Mitch Harris from Triple-A
    Cardinals recalled RHP Mitch Harris from Triple-A Memphis.

    Advice: The 29-year-old right-hander has appeared in 16 games already with the Cardinals this season, posting a 3.63 ERA, 1.85 WHIP and 9/10 K/BB ratio over 17 1/3 innings. He'll function in middle relief for the Cardinals.
    Yesterday, 8:47 am
  • Mariners option Tom Wilhelmsen to Triple-A
    Mariners optioned RHP Tom Wilhelmsen to Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: The 31-year-old right-hander has struggled out of the Mariners bullpen this season, posting a 4.68 ERA, 1.72 WHIP and 28/11 K/BB mark over 25 innings. He'll look to get back on track in the minor leagues before hopefully rejoining the M's bullpen later in the season.

  • Mariners option Roenis Elias to Triple-A
    Mariners optioned LHP Roenis Elias to Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: The 26-year-old southpaw has pitched relatively well in the Mariners rotation, compiling a 4.27 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 64/25 K/BB ratio over 78 innings in 13 starts. He became the odd-man out though with Hisashi Iwakuma set to return from the disabled list. Elias will get another chance the next time the M's need an extra starter.

  • Rays purchase contract of Everett Teaford
    Rays purchased the contract of LHP Everett Teaford from Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: The 31-year-old will provide depth to the Rays bullpen with his ability to work multiple innings. In 13 starts at Triple-A Durham he has registered a 5.56 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 46/18 K/BB ratio across 68 frames.
    Yesterday, 6:05 am
  • Noah Syndergaard strong for six innings
    Noah Syndergaard was lifted after allowing one run and two hits in six innings Friday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Syndergaard only walked two, but it still took him 107 pitches to get through six. Needless to say, the Mets weren't going to give him a chance to match last week's eight innings of one-run ball against the Reds. Syndergaard lowered his ERA to 3.38. He's allowed one or no earned runs in six of his 10 starts.
    Friday, 10:50 pm
  • Clayton Kershaw holds down Mets
    Clayton Kershaw wasn't involved in the decision after allowing one run in seven innings Friday against the Mets.

    Advice: At least it wasn't a fourth straight loss. Kershaw just isn't getting any help from the Dodgers, and he might well miss out on the All-Star Game because of it. He's 5-6 with a 3.08 ERA and a 147/27 K/BB in 114 IP.
    Friday, 10:47 pm
    1:10 pm vs NYM
  • Morton tosses quality start against Pirates
    Charlie Morton provided a quality start in Friday's loss to the Indians, yielding three runs on four hits over six innings.

    Advice: Morton struck out three and walked three in the outing. Runs scored in the second and fourth innings, when Morton allowed a two-run homer to Brandon Moss and an RBI double to Michael Bourne, respectively. The loss dropped him to 6-2 on the season. In addition to the solid record, Morton holds a 4.30 ERA and 1.28 WHIP. Up next on the docket, a home start against the Padres.
    Friday, 10:23 pm
  • Carson Smith gives up two runs to A's
    Working the ninth with the Mariners up by six, Carson Smith allowed two runs in his inning Friday against the A's.

    Advice: The Mariners haven't had any save chances since Fernando Rodney got the nod over Smith last Friday against the Angels. It might well be that Rodney gets the call again next time out. Smith hasn't done anything wrong, but Lloyd McClendon wants Rodney to win back the job.
    Friday, 10:15 pm
  • Evan Scribner gives up two homers
    Evan Scribner gave up two homers in two innings of relief Friday against the Mariners.

    Advice: The home run ball is Scribner's bugaboo, and while he's one candidate to step in as Oakland's closer once Tyler Clippard is traded, those flyball tendencies might cause Edward Mujica to get the job instead. Scribner has given up nine homers this year, which is why his ERA stands at 3.64 despite a crazy 44/3 K/BB ratio in 42 innings.
    Friday, 10:13 pm
  • Guthrie pitches into eighth against Twins
    Jeremy Guthrie pitched a strong game in earning a no-decision against the Twins on Friday, allowing two runs on five hits over 7 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Despite Guthrie's strong performance, the pitcher did not receive a decision in the game, as the contest was knotted at 2-2 until the Royals snapped the tie in the bottom of the 10th inning. Guthrie struck out four and walked one, lowering his ERA to a still-awful 5.42. He also holds a 1.46 WHIP. None of these numbers are good, obviously. Guthrie will try to repeat his results from Friday when he faces the Rays in a home start next Wednesday.
    Friday, 9:25 pm
  • Milone allows one run to Royals over six IP
    Tommy Milone held the Royals down on Friday, allowing just one run on five hits over six innings.

    Advice: Outside of a run-scoring single by Lorenzo Cain in the third inning, Milone managed to keep the Royals off the scoreboard. He struck out five and walked just one in hurling his fifth quality start in a row. The southpaw now owns a 3.02 ERA and 1.27 WHIP. Deeper AL-only formats should consider him as a pick-up, particularly with the way he's pitching at the moment. He won't strike out many batters, but his numbers are rock solid.
    Friday, 9:20 pm
  • Chi Chi Gonzalez hammered in loss to Angels
    Chi Chi Gonzalez was hammered in Friday's loss to the Angels, allowing six runs on five hits in just 1 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Gonzalez also issued a pair of walks while striking out one. All of the damage against him came during a six-run uprising in the second inning. It's the second time in his last three starts that he has allowed six runs, watching his ERA rise from 0.90 to 3.74. He'll look to get back on track on Friday when he takes on the Padres.

  • Corbin (elbow) to make 2015 debut Saturday
    Patrick Corbin (elbow) will make his season debut on Saturday against the Rockies.

    Advice: Corbin had been slated for one more rehab start, but the Diamondbacks felt that he looked ready on his rehab assignment so they will bring him back a little early. Making his way back from Tommy John surgery, the left-hander put up a 4.76 ERA and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 17 rehab innings. Ideally, fantasy owners should give him at least a start or two before sticking him back into their lineup.
    Friday, 2:10 pm
  • Elias gives up 3 runs in loss to the A's
    Roenis Elias surrendered three runs on three hits across six innings in a loss to the A's on Thursday.

    Advice: He struck out seven and walked one. Elias was touched for two runs in the first, mostly settling in for a smooth five innings to come after that. Unfortunately, Scott Kazmir put up eight zeroes across from him, dropping Elias to 4-6 with a 4.27 ERA and 1.24 WHIP.

  • Betances records four outs for his 7th save
    Dellin Betances recorded four outs to snag his seventh save as the Yankees wrapped up a 3-1 win against the Angels on Wednesday.

    Advice: Betances came in to get the final out of the eighth inning after Mike Trout had homered off of Justin Wilson. He got Albert Pujols to ground out. The ninth inning was troublesome, as Betances walked Erick Aybar to start off the frame. Aybar then stole second. With two outs, Betances issued another walk to Chris Iannetta to put the tying run on base. He bounced back to strike out C.J. Cron to end the contest. Since taking over for the injured Andrew Miller, Betances is 6-for-6 in save chances and overall sports a 1.13 ERA with a 64/18 K/BB ratio in 39 2/3 innings.
    Wednesday, 7:50 pm
  • Corbin (elbow) could make debut Saturday
    Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Patrick Corbin (elbow) could make his season debut Saturday against the Rockies.

    Advice: Corbin was expected to make a final rehab start Thursday, but the club is holding him back with the idea that he could be needed with the big club sooner. Corbin owns a 4.76 ERA and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 17 minor league innings as he makes his way back from Tommy John surgery. Corbin is worth owning, if not starting, in all fantasy leagues.
    Wednesday, 3:17 pm
  • Blanton doesn't last long in loss to Astros
    Joe Blanton had a short evening, going only 2 2/3 innings after giving up five runs in Monday's loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Blanton had pitched well in his first two starts back in the rotation ahead of Monday's start, but the Astros had him figured out. They plated two runs in the second and three in the third on five hits and four walks. The right-hander struck out only two. Including his time in the bullpen, Blanton owns a 3.14 ERA with a 1.15 WHIP and a 26/7 K/BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings. He has a date at home against the Twins in his next start.
    Monday, 8:20 pm
  • Nelson mediocre, but lucks out with a win
    Jimmy Nelson didn't have his best stuff on Monday, yielding four runs in five innings, but still walked away with a win against the Phillies.

    Advice: The Phillies jumped on Nelson for two runs in each of the first two innings. To Nelson's credit, he stopped the bleeding from there, giving up six hits and a pair of walks overall while striking out three. Nelson has had an inconsistent year, now owning a 4.48 ERA with a 1.30 WHIP and a 78/35 K/BB ratio in 96 1/3 innings. His next turn through the rotation comes over the weekend in Cincinnati against the Reds.
    Monday, 7:52 pm
  • Rodriguez tosses 5 solid innings to beat O's
    Wandy Rodriguez earned the win, limiting the Orioles to one run in five innings as the Rangers sealed an 8-1 victory on Monday.

    Advice: Rodriguez was routed in his most recent start against the Athletics, so Monday's performance was a nice bounce-back effort. The lefty worked around eight hits and two walks with seven strikeouts. He'll carry a 3.91 ERA, a 1.43 WHIP, and a 61/28 K/BB ratio over 73 2/3 innings into a home start against the Angels next weekend.
    Monday, 7:38 pm
  • Buchholz stellar in eight frames to beat Jays
    Clay Buchholz delivered eight innings of one-run ball in a win against the Blue Jays on Monday.

    Advice: Buchholz's ERA continues to drop at a precipitous rate. In his third consecutive sterling performance this month, the right-hander scattered five hits without issuing a walk and striking out five. The lone run came around in the sixth inning on Josh Donaldson's RBI double. Buchholz heads into a weekend start at home against the Astros with a 3.48 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP, and a 96/23 K/BB ratio in 101 innings.
    Monday, 6:40 pm
  • Corbin (elbow) on track for July 7-8 return
    Patrick Corbin (elbow) will make his season debut for the Diamondbacks on either July 7 or 8 in Texas.

    Advice: Corbin will make one final rehab start on Thursday to complete his rehab from Tommy John surgery. The left-hander has put up a 4.76 ERA and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 17 innings across four rehab starts to this point but has reportedly been hitting the mid-90s on the radar gun. Despite the nice velocity, fantasy owners should probably take a wait-and-see approach with Corbin rather than trusting him right away.
    Monday, 3:45 pm
  • Miscommunication led to early exit for Price
    David Price's outing Sunday was cut short because of a miscommunication with manager Brad Ausmus.

    Advice: Ausmus had planned to bring Price out for the seventh inning but he had already gotten undressed. The left-hander took responsibility for the mixup, calling it a "miscommunication on everyone's part." Hopefully Price and Ausmus can get on the same page next time out against Toronto.

  • Tillman fires seven shutout innings vs. Tribe
    Chris Tillman fired seven shutout innings against the Indians on Sunday as the Orioles took both games of Sunday's doubleheader.

    Advice: Tillman racked up six strikeouts on the day without issuing a walk. He has been wildly inconsistent this season, coming off of his previous outing where he allowed six runs and didn't escape the second inning against the Blue Jays. Hopefully he can carry over this tremendous outing and further improve upon his 5.67 ERA when he takes on the White Sox in Chicago next weekend.
    Jun 28, 7:14 pm
  • Jeremy Guthrie allows two runs in victory
    Jeremy Guthrie allowed two runs over six innings in a victory over the Athletics on Sunday.

    Advice: Guthrie picked up his 1,000th career strikeout along the way. His seven strikeouts were a season high.
    Jun 28, 5:16 pm
  • Hector Santiago strong versus Mariners
    Hector Santiago pitched seven strong innings, allowing one run and three hits, Sunday against the Marlins.

    Advice: He struck out six and walked two. Unfortunately, the end result was another no-decision for Santiago, who finishes the month of June with an 0-1 record and a 3.68 ERA. The Angels did win three of his five starts, though.
    Jun 28, 4:53 pm
  • Milone goes six scoreless in no-decision
    Tommy Milone hurled six scoreless innings with nothing to show for it Sunday, settling for a no-decision against the Brewers.

    Advice: Milone stifled the Brewers offense for his six innings, allowing just two hits and three walks while striking out seven. He exited in line for his fifth win, but the Twins bullpen couldn't hold the lead. Even so, it was another strong showing for the lefty, who has been largely good in his nine starts this year. Milone will carry a 3.19 ERA into Friday's contest with the Royals.
    Jun 28, 2:14 pm
  • Indians release veteran Scott Atchison
    Indians released RHP Scott Atchison.

    Advice: The 39-year-old was designated for assignment earlier in the week after posting a 6.86 ERA and 12/4 K/BB ratio over 19 2/3 innings out of the Tribe's bullpen. It's unclear if he'll look to latch on elsewhere or decide to call it a career.

  • David Price solid in no-decision versus Sox
    David Price wasn't at his best but took a no-decision Sunday, allowing four runs over six innings in a 5-4 win over the White Sox.

    Advice: Price recorded five strikeouts and didn't walk anyone, but he exited after six frames losing 4-0. In an odd twist, the lefty reportedly was set to go out for the seventh inning, but he had assumed he was done after six and no one could find the lefty and alert him that he was supposed to keep pitching. Regardless, the Tigers came from behind to bail Price out. The southpaw will bring a 2.62 ERA into next weekend's matchup versus the Blue Jays.
    Jun 28, 1:39 pm

  • Correia keeps Phils in game, but suffers loss
    Kevin Correia pitched reasonably well in Sunday's loss to the Nationals, serving up three runs (one earned) in 5 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Correia had shut the Nationals out through four innings, but an error by Jeff Francoeur in right field in the fifth inning helped set up the Nationals for their first run. In the sixth, a passed ball by Cameron Rupp on reliever Jake Diekman's pitch allowed a runner Correia had put on to score. All told, Correia allowed seven hits and three walks while striking out four. In four starts with the Phillies, he owns a 3.60 ERA with a 1.65 WHIP, and a 13/7 K/BB ratio in 20 innings. He'll match up with the Braves in a road start next.
    Jun 28, 1:27 pm
  • Greinke hurls 7 2/3 shutout innings in a win
    Zack Greinke was dominant in a win on Sunday, blanking the Marlins over 7 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Greinke limited the Fish to four hits (three singles) and a walk while striking out six. Max Scherzer has been grabbing all the headlines lately, but the Dodgers' right-hander is right there in the NL Cy Young conversation as we near the midpoint of the season. Greinke owns a 6-2 record with a 1.58 ERA, a 0.91 WHIP, and a 94/20 K/BB ratio over 108 1/3 innings. He'll start next at home against the Mets.

  • Chi Chi Gonzalez solid but takes loss
    Chi Chi Gonzalez notched a quality start but took a loss Sunday, yielding three runs over six innings against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Gonzalez allowed just four hits on the day, but he walked four and the Jays bunched their hits together and pegged the righty for three runs in the middle innings. It was a decent bounce-back start for Gonzalez after he was lit up by the A's the last time out. He's managed a 2.59 ERA, but that ugly 14/17 K/BB ratio over 41 2/3 frames say bad things are coming. Gonzalez gets the Angels next weekend.

  • Morton allows 10 hits, four runs vs. Braves
    Charlie Morton allowed four runs on 10 hits over six innings in a win over the Braves on Saturday.

    Advice: Morton struggled for a second straight start but managed to limit the damage in this one. That was due in part to his six strikeouts while not walking a batter. Morton owned a 1.62 ERA on June 16, but after his last two starts he's up to a 4.28 ERA with a 1.30 WHIP. Morton will carry a 6-1 record into Friday's interleague tilt with the Indians.
    Jun 27, 5:34 pm
  • Kershaw punches out nine in loss to Marlins
    Clayton Kershaw struck out nine over seven innings, allowing three runs -- one earned -- in a loss to the Marlins on Saturday.

    Advice: Kershaw wasn't afforded any help by his defense or himself, as one run scored on a fielding error and another scored on a wild pitch. The lefty gave up seven hits and didn't walk a batter in his seven innings. He's now lost three decisions in a row to fall to 5-6 overall. Kershaw has a 3.20 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 140/25 K/BB ratio over 107 innings. He'll look to get back in the win column Friday against the Mets.

  • Patrick Corbin k's five in rehab start Friday
    Patrick Corbin (elbow) punched out five hitters over six innings of work in his latest minor league rehab start with Double-A Mobile on Friday.

    Advice: Corbin gave up two runs on four hits and a pair of walks in the outing. He built his stamina up to 87 pitches in this outing and will require just one more rehab start before rejoining the Diamondbacks rotation.
    Jun 27, 5:55 am
  • Carson Smith gets hold against Angels
    Carson Smith picked up a hold Friday after getting two outs in the eighth inning against the Angels.

    Advice: With Mike Trout and Albert Pujols coming up in a 3-1 game, Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon chose to go to his best reliever in the eighth rather than save him for the ninth. Smith actually failed to retire either -- Trout singled and Pujols walked -- but Smith went on to get a double play ball to escape the jam and earn a hold. He's still probably the favorite for saves in Seattle at the moment.
    Jun 26, 10:33 pm
  • Betances notches four-out save vs. Astros
    Dellin Betances turned in a four-out save against the Astros on Friday for his fifth save of the season.

    Advice: Betances entered the game with one on and two out in the bottom of the eighth and got Evan Gattis to strike out swinging. He then turned in a 1-2-3 ninth inning to finish off the victory. It was nice to see after he was hit hard by the Phillies last time out. Betances owns a 1.21 ERA through 33 appearances this season to go along with 61 strikeouts and 16 walks over 37 1/3 innings.

  • Syndergaard goes eight IP in win over Reds
    Noah Syndergaard spun eight innings of one-run ball in a 2-1 win over the Reds on Friday.

    Advice: It was the first time in his brief major league career that he completed eight innings. Syndergaard cruised for the most part, allowing five hits while walking none and striking out five. The only run scored on a ground out. He needed just 89 pitches to get through his eight innings of work. The 22-year-old has had his fair share of ups and downs of late, but an outing like this one underscores the upside. He'll bring a 3.59 ERA into a start against the Dodgers next weekend on the road.

  • Elias bombed for 7 runs in 4th inning of loss
    Roenis Elias was shelled in a loss to the Royals on Wednesday, yielding seven runs on five hits across 3 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Elias breezed through three shutout innings until the wheels fell off abruptly in the fourth. The 26-year-old left-hander struck out two and walked one in the clunker. He'll tote a 4.25 ERA and 1.29 WHIP into his next start in San Diego.
