  • Colome hit around for 5 runs over 6 innings
    Alex Colome lost on Monday against the Angels after giving up five runs in six innings.

    Advice: Colome was hurt by the long ball, as all five runs came on three home runs. The first was a David Freese homer to left field. The second plated three runs via Mike Trout, and the third was a solo blast from Albert Pujols. Colome allowed nine hits in total while walking three and striking out five. Despite a 5.05 ERA, he's been more good than bad on the mound thus far, but he doesn't have any fantasy value. Colome starts next in Seattle against the Mariners. Rotoworld.com

  • Bradley struggles in 5 IP against the Braves
    Archie Bradley struggled and took the loss, allowing five runs in five innings as the Diamondbacks fell 8-1 to the Braves on Monday.

    Advice: The Braves rallied against Bradley in the second inning, using four singles, a double, and a walk to plate three runs. They scored two more in the fifth inning on a Freddie Freeman home run. Bradley gave up eight hits and walked three while striking out one overall on the evening. The rookie has struggled in four starts after he was hit with a line drive. He's carrying a 5.80 ERA on the year with a 1.63 WHIP and a 23/22 K/BB ratio in 35 2/3 innings. Bradley will look for better results his next time out at home against the Mets. Rotoworld.com

  • Kendrick hammered by the Dodgers in a loss
    Kyle Kendrick was hit hard in a loss to the Dodgers on Monday, serving up six runs (five earned) over 5 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Kendrick allowed 10 hits, two of which were home runs, while walking two and striking out one. Both homers came in the second inning via Andre Ethier and Jimmy Rollins. The Dodgers then put on their first five batters against Kendrick in the sixth on four hits and an error en route to a six-run frame. Kendrick and Coors Field hasn't been a good match, as expected. He has an ugly 6.55 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, and 32/22 K/BB ratio in 66 innings. Kendrick will face the Marlins at home in his next start. Rotoworld.com

  • J.C. Gutierrez opts out of minors deal
    Giants released RHP J.C. Gutierrez.

    Advice: Steve Adams of MLBTradeRumors.com says Gutierrez has exercised the opt-out clause in his contract. The 31-year-old has posted a 4.94 ERA with 21 strikeouts over 23 2/3 innings at Triple-A Sacramento this season. He should be able to latch on elsewhere pretty quickly. Rotoworld.com

  • Garcia takes a tough-luck loss vs. Brewers
    Jaime Garcia pitched brilliantly, limiting the Brewers to one run over seven innings, but took a tough-luck loss on Monday.

    Advice: Garcia allowed Jean Segura to reach on a single to lead off the ballgame, then watched Segura score on a two-out Carlos Gomez single. They accounted for two of just three hits the lefty allowed on the evening while walking none and striking out four. In his first three starts since returning from the disabled list, Garcia has allowed seven runs (six earned) on 16 hits and five walks with 11 strikeouts in 20 innings. He's worth a flier in mixed leagues, but he will always be an injury risk. Garcia takes on the Dodgers in L.A. in his next outing. Rotoworld.com

  • Jimenez tosses 6 solid frames in no-decision
    Ubaldo Jimenez got a no-decision, holding the Astros to two runs in six innings, as the Orioles dropped Monday's contest.

    Advice: Jimenez allowed his first run in the fifth inning on a Luis Valbuena solo home run. He started the seventh inning, but allowed a leadoff single to Chris Carter before being yanked. Carter would later come around to score. Jimenez gave up four hits on the night while walking two and striking out eight. Despite some recent struggles, he still has a terrific 3.12 ERA with a 1.16 WHIP and a 55/16 K/BB ratio over 57 2/3 innings. He'll try to get back into the win column for the first time since May 11 in his next start on the road against the Indians. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Stites activated, then optioned
    Diamondbacks activated RHP Matt Stites from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Reno.

    Advice: Stites has allowed three runs -- two earned -- over 1 1/3 rehab innings while working his way back from a strained right flexor tendon. He should join the Diamondbacks' bullpen at some point as long as he's healthy. Rotoworld.com

  • Mike Montgomery to make MLB debut Tuesday
    Mariners pitching prospect Mike Montgomery will be recalled to make his major league debut on Tuesday against the Yankees.

    Advice: He's taking James Paxton's (finger) spot in the rotation. A former top-50 prospect, Montgomery has seen his star fade dramatically the last couple years but has had a nice season at Triple-A Tacoma, posting a 3.74 ERA and 47/15 K/BB ratio over 53 innings. He could stick around for a bit if he pitches well. Rotoworld.com

  • David Huff called up from Triple-A
    Dodgers purchased the contract of LHP David Huff from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: He'll be available out of the bullpen Monday, but if he isn't used could start one of games during Tuesday's doubleheader. Huff allowed four runs over four innings in a spot start for the Dodgers back in April. Rotoworld.com

  • Hoffman impresses in first career victory
    Blue Jays pitching prospect Jeff Hoffman notched his first minor league win Sunday for High-A Dunedin.

    Advice: He struck out three while allowing two hits over five shutout innings. Hoffman has posted a 5.02 ERA in 14 1/3 innings since returning from Tommy John surgery. The surgery hasn't affected his velocity as the right-hander's fastball has been clocked as high as 99 mph. Toronto picked the East Carolina alum in the first round of the 2014 draft. Rotoworld.com

  • Twins vs. Red Sox postponed Monday by rain
    Monday's game between the Red Sox and Twins has been postponed due to rainy conditions in Boston.

    Advice: There's an ugly forecast for the evening around Fenway Park, so the Red Sox called this one early. Clay Buchholz was scheduled to pitch for Boston and Mike Pelfrey was on tap for Minnesota. They'll be pushed back to Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Braves designate Veal for assignment
    Braves designated LHP Donnie Veal for assignment.

    Advice: Veal was also DFA'd by Atlanta on May 5, but he passed through waivers unclaimed and accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Gwinnett. Now he's off the 40-man roster again after allowing three earned runs in one inning of relief spread over two appearances. Rotoworld.com

  • Joe Smith (neck) tosses scoreless inning
    Joe Smith (neck) tossed a scoreless inning in his return to action Sunday versus the Tigers.

    Advice: Smith had been bothered by a knot in his neck, but it's obviously no big deal. The veteran setup man owns a 3.57 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 23/6 K/BB ratio in 22 2/3 innings this season. He has already racked up 14 holds. Rotoworld.com

  • Despaigne excels again in victory over Bucs
    Odrisamer Despaigne delivered another terrific outing in Sunday's victory over the Pirates, allowing just one run on seven hits over eight strong innings.

    Advice: The right-hander racked up four strikeouts on the evening while allowing just one base on balls. The lone blemish on his evening was a solo homer off the bat of Gregory Polanco in the eighth inning. After two disastrous outings to begin the season, Despaigne appears to have righted the ship and will look to further improve upon a 4.56 ERA and 1.26 when he squares off against the Reds in Cincinnati on Saturday.

  • Joe Smith was unavailable for Friday's game
    Angels manager Mike Scioscia admitted after Friday's game that Joe Smith was unavailable due to a knot in his neck.

    Advice: While the issue isn't believed to be serious, it does affect his delivery and Smith is receiving treatment for it. He should return to game action at some point over the weekend. The 31-year-old hurler boasts a 3.80 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 22/6 K/BB ratio over 21 1/3 innings on the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Jimenez yields four runs over seven in ND
    Ubaldo Jimenez allowed four runs on 10 hits over seven innings in Wednesday's no-decision against the Astros.

    Advice: Jimenez was staked to a 4-1 lead that he carried into the seventh inning, when the Astros posted three runs to sully his pitching line. Jimenez struck out five while walking a batter on the afternoon. The right-hander hasn't won in his last three starts, remaining at 3-3 with a 3.14 ERA. He'll get his shot at redemption when the O's take on the Astros again Monday. Rotoworld.com

  • Kyle Kendrick solid over 7 1/3 innings
    Kyle Kendrick allowed four runs but lasted 7 1/3 innings in Wednesday's 6-4 victory over the Reds.

    Advice: Kendrick served up two homers and struck out only one, but he permitted just five hits in total and also issued just one free pass. The outing was his longest of the season in 10 trips to the mound. Kendrick will bring an ugly 6.38 ERA and 31/20 K/BB ratio over 60 2/3 innings into next week's start versus the Dodgers.

    Braves purchased the contract of LHP Donnie Veal from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Veal was removed from Atlanta's 40-man roster earlier this month after allowed four runs over 3 1/3 relief innings. He'll give the Braves another lefty reliever after they traded Eric Stults and Ian Thomas. Rotoworld.com

  • Despaigne blanks Angels over six innings
    Odrisamer Despaigne held the Angels scoreless over six innings of work but got a no-decision as the Padres won in 10 innings on Tuesday.

    Advice: Despaigne scattered five hits -- all singles -- without issuing a walk and striking out five. The Angels only had a runner reach scoring position three times and they, obviously, failed each time. Despaigne's most recent two starts have been much better than his first two starts after rejoining the rotation in early May but he still carries a lackluster 5.23 ERA with a 1.31 WHIP and a 21/11 K/BB ratio in 41 1/3 innings. Despaigne matches up against the Pirates at home in his next start. Rotoworld.com

  • Buchholz allows two runs in loss to Twins
    Clay Buchholz allowed two runs over 7 1/3 innings in a loss to the Twins on Tuesday.

    Advice: Buchholz allowed back-to-back RBI doubles in the first inning, but he settled down to keep the Twins off the scoreboard for the rest of his time. Buchholz finished with seven hits and a walk while striking out four. The loss dropped him to 2-6, but Buchholz actually lowered his ERA to 4.33 in the start. He'll try to get back in the win column Sunday at the Rangers. Rotoworld.com

  • Colome allows two runs against Mariners
    Alex Colome gave up two runs over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Mariners on Tuesday.

    Advice: Things got off to a rocky start for Colome, as four of the first five hitters singled to produce two runs in the top of the first inning. Colome settled down to allow just one more hit and one more walk over the next 4 1/3 innings. He was unable to improve his 3-1 record but he did lower his ERA to 4.55. The right-hander will next take on the Angels on Monday. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:32 pm
  • Bradley allows six runs in loss to Cardinals
    Archie Bradley allowed six runs over 3 2/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: The right-hander struggled out of the gate, allowing four runs after the first six batters of the game. He allowed two more runs over his next 2 2/3 innings before exiting. Bradley's ERA and WHIP ballooned to 5.28 and 1.53, respectively, and he still hasn't won since being hit in the face by a comebacker on April 28. He'll try to get back in the win column Monday against the Braves. Rotoworld.com

  • Garcia earns first victory in win over ARI
    Jaime Garcia earned his first win of the season Tuesday, giving up four runs -- three earned -- over six innings against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Garcia stumbled out of the gate, as the Diamondbacks put up two runs in the first inning. Two more runs over the next two innings threatened to end his night early, but Garcia recovered to post three scoreless frames and earn the victory. He struck out five without walking a batter in the win. He's now 1-1 with a 3.46 ERA through two starts, and he appears -- at least for now -- to be healthy. Garcia will take the mound Monday against the Brewers. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Stites (elbow) nears rehab assignment
    Matt Stites (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment at High-A Visalia later this week.

    Advice: It will come after he makes one final appearance in extended spring training on Monday. Stites was diagnosed with a strained right flexor tendon in spring training, but he's made nice progress lately and it appears he could be back early next month. Rotoworld.com

  • Jimenez handed no-decision vs. Marlins
    Ubaldo Jimenez was handed a no-decision Friday after giving up three runs over four innings against the Marlins.

    Advice: Jimenez was in trouble throughout his brief outing and was fortunate that things weren't worse. All told, he gave up seven hits and a walk while striking out four. Orioles manager Buck Showalter decided to pinch-hit for him after he reached 87 pitches through four innings. His ERA jumped from 2.43 to 2.82 in the no-decision. He'll look to bounce back next week against the Astros. Rotoworld.com
