  • John Danks hurls complete game vs. Royals
    John Danks was brilliant in Friday's victory over the Royals, allowing just one run on seven hits over nine strong frames.

    Advice: Danks struck out five while walking just one in the ballgame. It was the second complete game of the season for the veteran southpaw. The only blemish on his evening came on Kendrys Morales' sacrifice fly in the ninth inning. Even with this terrific start though, Danks still sports an uninspiring 4.60 ERA and 1.38 WHIP over 154 2/3 innings. He'll head in search of his eighth victory when he battles the Indians on Wednesday. 22 minutes ago
  • Kris Medlen hit hard in loss to White Sox
    Kris Medlen was hit hard in Friday's loss to the White Sox, giving up seven runs on 11 hits over his 5 2/3 innings.

    Advice: The right-hander punched out three on the night and walked one. The White Sox scratched out three runs against him in the first inning, then broke the game open with Tyler Flowers' three-run bomb in the fourth. He has struggled through three starts in the Royals rotation, but still probably represents a better option than Jeremy Guthrie. He'll look to get back on track on Wednesday against the Twins. 31 minutes ago

  • deGrom tosses quality start in loss to Fish
    Jacob deGrom supplied a quality start in a Friday no-decision against the Marlins, allowing three runs on nine hits over six innings.

    Advice: As you might be able to guess from the nine hits deGrom surrendered, he lacked his best stuff on Friday. The Marlins scored all three of their runs on his line in the fourth inning, when they burned him with a pair of RBI singles and a sacrifice fly. He'll carry a 2.40 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 175/34 K/BB ratio across 169 innings into his next start, a road contest with the Nationals. 39 minutes ago
  • Koehler walks five in win over Mets
    Tom Koehler issued five walks and allowed two runs over six innings in Friday's defeat of the Mets.

    Advice: The five walks were a season-high for Koehler. Despite his inability to find the plate, the Mets were unable to take advantage with much of any offense. The 29-year-old right-hander will tango with the Brewers in his upcoming home start, carrying a 4.08 ERA and 1.33 WHIP along for the ride. 40 minutes ago
    W, 6-5 vs ^ NYM
  • Teheran walks four in tight contest vs WAS
    Julio Teheran held off the Nationals' attack in Friday's no-decision, surrendering just one run over six innings.

    Advice: Bryce Harper socked a long solo home run off Teheran in the first inning, but it would be the only run the Nats scored with him on the mound. For the evening, he struck out four and walked four. There's rarely much excitement in a Teheran start and his numbers remain exceedingly average, as he now holds a 4.51 ERA and 1.34 WHIP. The 24-year-old right-hander will head out for a road showdown against the Phillies in his next outing. Today, 7:44 pm
  • Roark allows one run in spot start
    Tanner Roark limited the Braves' offense in a spot start on Friday, allowing one run on five hits over 4 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Roark walked three and struck out one on the evening. He was starting in place of the injured Stephen Strasburg (back). The lone run to score against him came home on an RBI single by A.J. Pierzynski in the third inning. Strasburg will likely return in the next week, but it's possible that Roark will stick in the rotation as the Nationals try to limit Joe Ross' innings. Over 84 2/3 innings (including seven starts), the 28-year-old right-hander owns a 4.41 ERA and 1.33 WHIP. Today, 7:44 pm
    W, 5-2 vs ^ Atl
  • Ubaldo Jimenez walks six in victory over Jays
    Despite matching his season-high by issuing six walks, Ubaldo Jimenez picked up his 10th victory of the season on Friday, limiting the Blue Jays to two runs (one earned) on four hits over 5 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Jimenez struck out four on the evening. The 31-year-old hurler had been extremely inconsistent this season, compiling a 4.24 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 138/56 K/BB ratio across 153 innings. He'll look for improved command when he takes the hill against the Yankees in New York on Wednesday. Today, 7:40 pm
  • Josh Tomlin shines in complete game victory
    Josh Tomlin delivered a masterful performance in Friday's victory over the Tigers, allowing just one run on four hits while pitching his first complete game this season.

    Advice: Tomlin racked up six strikeouts on the night while walking one. The only blemish on his evening was an RBI single by Miguel Cabrera in the sixth inning. The veteran right-hander has pitched very well in his five starts this season, compiling a 2.55 ERA and 32/3 K/BB ratio over 35 1/3 innings. He'll take on the White Sox in Chicago on Wednesday and warrants consideration in all mixed leagues while he's pitching this well. Today, 7:12 pm
    W, 8-1 ^ @Det
  • Kyle Lobstein struggles in return from DL
    Kyle Lobstein struggled in his return from the disabled list on Friday, surrendering six runs on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings.

    Advice: With the depth of the struggles that the Tigers have had in the rotation this season, Lobstein's return was actually a very welcomed sight. He certainly looked rusty after missing the past three months with a left shoulder injury. Lobstein will look to improve upon his 5.02 ERA when he squares off against the Rays on Wednesday. Today, 6:53 pm
  • Odorizzi burned for three homers by Yanks
    Jake Odorizzi struggled at times in Friday's loss to the Yankees, allowing five runs on three hits over 6 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Odorizzi struck out eight and allowed just three hits in the contest, but they were the worst possible kinds of hits. Alex Rodriguez smacked a two-run homer off the right-hander in the second inning, Brian McCann launched a solo shot in the fourth and Greg Bird smashed a two-run shot in the seventh to account for the totality of scoring on his line. He'll carry a 3.35 ERA and 1.12 WHIP into a road date with the Tigers next time he takes the ball. Today, 6:52 pm
  • Tanner Roark recalled from Triple-A
    Nationals recalled RHP Tanner Roark from Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: He's starting on Friday against the Braves in Stephen Strasburg's (back) place. Strasburg is expected to be ready next week, but it's possible Roark will remain in the rotation with Joe Ross nearing his innings limit. Today, 1:54 pm
    W, 5-2 vs ^ Atl
  • T.J. House (shoulder) moved to 60-day DL
    Indians transferred LHP T.J. House from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: It frees up a 40-man roster spot. House is done for the season with a shoulder injury. Today, 12:47 pm
    15-Day DL
    W, 8-1 @Det
  • Jarred Cosart recalled from Triple-A
    Marlins recalled RHP Jarred Cosart from Triple-A New Orleans.

    Advice: Cosart has been free of vertigo symptoms for a while now and should rejoin the Marlins' rotation. He holds a 5.36 ERA over nine appearances -- eight starts -- this season. Today, 10:18 am
  • Logan Darnell recalled from Triple-A
    Twins recalled LHP Logan Darnell from Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: Darnell put up a 2.78 ERA while splitting his time between starting and relieving at Rochester this season. The Twins will use him in long relief. Today, 9:14 am
  • Mat Latos allows four runs in four innings
    Mat Latos wasn't long for Thursday's no-decision against the Padres, lasting just four innings while allowing four runs.

    Advice: The Padres dinged Latos for eight hits over his limited time on the mound, scoring twice in the first inning and two more times in the second to account for all the damage on the right-hander's line. The tough start drove his ERA to 4.92. A short road trip for a date with the Angels is up next on his schedule. Yesterday, 10:34 pm
  • Chris Rusin goes distance to beat Giants
    Chris Rusin went the distance against the Giants on Thursday, allowing three runs in his second career complete-game victory.

    Advice: Rusin had a shutout against the Padres last month, so this makes him the team's first pitcher to throw two complete games at Coors Field in the same season since Aaron Cook in 2008. He's still just 5-7 with a 4.78 ERA overall, but that's better than anyone would have expected going into the year. Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Tigers activate Kyle Lobstein from 60-day DL
    Tigers activated LHP Kyle Lobstein from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Lobstein will return to the Tigers' rotation on Friday night against the Indians after missing over three months with a left shoulder injury. The southpaw owns a 4.34 ERA in 87 career major league frames and is not a great fantasy option for the stretch run. Yesterday, 10:23 am
  • Roark to start in Strasburg's place on Friday
    Tanner Roark will be recalled to start in place of Stephen Strasburg on Friday.

    Advice: Strasburg is dealing with some upper back discomfort, so Roark will get the call against the Braves. Roark threw two innings with High-A Potomac on Monday in preparation for such a move. Roark has made just six starts this year after winning 15 games as a starter last season. The 28-year-old has a 4.54 ERA and 1.30 WHIP through 79 1/3 innings on the year. Wednesday, 3:30 pm
    W, 5-2 vs ^ Atl
  • Teheran bombed for eight runs by the Braves
    Julio Teheran was bombed for eight earned runs in 4 1/3 innings Sunday as the Braves fell to the Yankees.

    Advice: Jacoby Ellsbury cranked a three-run homer in the second inning and Chase Headley and Stephen Drew both hit two-run shots in the third. It was one of the worst outings of the year for Teheran, who has mixed blowout losses with quality starts throughout his disappointing 2015. He'll get the Nationals on the road next. Sunday, 2:29 pm
  • Tomlin throws 7 effective innings to beat LAA
    Josh Tomlin picked up the win on Sunday, holding the Angels to two runs in seven innings.

    Advice: Tomlin made only one mistake, resulting in a solo home run to Grant Green in the sixth inning. He allowed the leadoff batter to reach on a single to begin the eighth inning before giving way to Zach McAllister, who allowed the inherited runner to score. Tomlin allowed six hits, walked none, and struck out eight in the effort. He's been effective in four starts thus far, owning a 3.08 ERA with a 0.76 WHIP and a 26/2 K/BB ratio in 26 1/3 innings. The right-hander will take on the Tigers in a road match next. Sunday, 1:02 pm

  • Mat Latos pitches well in return to rotation
    Mat Latos held the Cubs to two runs over 4 2/3 innings Saturday in a no-decision.

    Advice: Latos was skipped on his last turn through the Dodgers' rotation and pitched pretty well in his return to action Saturday all things considered. The right-hander walked three but struck out five and yielded only four hits. He'll face the Padres on the road next. Saturday, 9:44 pm
  • Rusin hurls quality start against Pirates
    Chris Rusin turned in a quality start in Saturday's loss to the Pirates, allowing three runs on six hits over six innings.

    Advice: All three runs against Rusin scored in the first inning when he coughed up a three-run homer to Aramis Ramirez. He posted goose eggs on the scoreboard over the next five frames. He needed a rebound like this after he was rocked for 11 runs over two-plus innings versus the Mets in his last start. The 28-year-old southpaw will carry a 4.94 ERA and 1.61 WHIP into a home date with the Giants next time he toes the rubber. Saturday, 7:21 pm
  • Nationals hit three homers against Koehler
    Tom Koehler could not keep the ball in the park in Saturday's loss to the Nationals, allowing three home runs and five total runs over six innings.

    Advice: Let's run through Koehler's homer-happy day. Ryan Zimmerman launched a solo shot in the second inning. Then, Clint Robinson and Ian Desmond went back-to-back in the sixth. Robinson's homer was a two-run shot. Homer happiness abounded. The 29-year-old right-hander's allowed an even 20 dingers in 150 2/3 innings. He'll take a 4.12 ERA and 1.31 WHIP into a home start against the Mets next time he toes the rubber. Saturday, 6:47 pm
    W, 6-5 vs ^ NYM
  • Medlen pitches into sixth in second start
    Making his second start of the season in Saturday's contest with the Rays, Kris Medlen allowed three runs on four hits over 5 1/3 innings.

    Advice: All three runs on Medlen's line scored in the fourth, when he was burned by an Asdrubal Cabrera RBI single and a two-run Kevin Kiermaier homer. The 29-year-old right-hander has allowed six runs over 11 1/3 innings in his first two starts this season. He's taking the place of Jeremy Guthrie in the Royal rotation and will face the White Sox at home in his next outing as he continues to work back into shape after a long, Tommy John-forced lay-off. Saturday, 6:34 pm
    L, 12-1 vs ^ CWS
  • Odorizzi surrenders four runs in 4 2/3 IP
    Jake Odorizzi didn't put his best foot forward in Saturday's loss to the Royals, allowing four runs on seven hits over 4 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Odorizzi struck out five and walked two on the evening. The Royals burned him with a pair of runs in the first inning and another pair in the fifth. While The 25-year-old right-hander might not have had his best stuff on Saturday, he's pitched to a nice 3.18 ERA and 1.14 WHIP over 133 innings this season. Odorizzi will head to the Bronx for a date with the Yankees in his next start. Saturday, 6:33 pm
  • deGrom fans 10 but takes loss vs. Red Sox
    Jacob deGrom struck out 10 batters over six innings but took a loss Saturday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: He was cruising until the top of the sixth, when Mookie Betts singled, Pablo Sandoval hit an RBI double, Travis Shaw drew a walk, and Brock Holt hit into a fielder's choice that drove in Boston's second run. It was a rare hiccup for deGrom, who stands 12-7 with a 2.32 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, and 171/34 K/BB ratio in 163 innings this season. He'll face the Marlins on the road next week. Saturday, 4:06 pm
  • Danks undone by pair of solo homers
    John Danks pitched well in Friday's loss to the Mariners, allowing two runs on seven hits over six innings.

    Advice: Danks served up solo home runs to Kyle Seager and Franklin Gutierrez in the sixth inning. These would be the only runs either team scored in the game. The veteran southpaw will take a 4.82 ERA and 1.41 WHIP into his next outing, a Thursday afternoon road tilt with the Twins. Friday, 9:47 pm
  • Jarred Cosart allows four runs in rehab start
    Jarred Cosart allowed four runs on five hits over five innings of work Thursday with High-A Jupiter.

    Advice: Cosart surrendered five hits on the night while walking one and striking out four. He has been sidelined since early July with an inner-ear disorder, but is finally making tangible strides toward a return to the big league rotation. He should be ready to roll at some point in early September. Thursday, 5:44 pm
  • Cosart (ear) to make rehab start
    Jarred Cosart (ear) is scheduled to start Thursday with High-A Jupiter and throw 60-65 pitches.

    Advice: Cosart has been shut down since having a setback with an inner-ear disorder in July. The Marlins are hoping to get him back in their rotation in September. Thursday, 2:06 pm
  • Jacob deGrom had food poisoning Monday
    Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports that Jacob deGrom was dealing with food poisoning during his start on Monday.

    Advice: It's helps explain why he pitched uncharacteristically poorly, yielding seven runs -- six earned -- in 2 2/3 innings. DeGrom had an IV on Tuesday and is feeling much better. He'll be fine for his next outing. Wednesday, 12:52 pm
  • Tomlins strikes out seven in win over Brewers
    Josh Tomlin allowed four runs over six innings, striking out seven, in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Tomlin oscillated between being nearly unhittable and serving up dingers, with three of his five hits allowed going for homers. Tomlin didn't walk a batter in the contest. The right-hander is now 2-1 with a 3.26 ERA, 0.72 WHIP and 18/2 K/BB ratio over 19 1/3 innings on the year. A real test is on deck when Tomlin faces the Blue Jays in Toronto on Monday. Tuesday, 7:48 pm

  • Nationals option Tanner Roark to Potomac
    Nationals optioned RHP Tanner Roark to High-A Potomac.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the Nats' 25-man roster for Denard Span, who is returning from the disabled list. Roark, who's been pitching primarily in long relief, should be brought back when rosters expand on September 1. He'll work as a starter at Potomac and could replace Joe Ross in the Nationals' rotation when Ross hits his innings limit. Tuesday, 1:19 pm
    W, 5-2 vs ^ Atl
