  • Heyward smacks second homer of season
    Jason Heyward hit his second home run of the season in Friday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: The third inning home run off of Matt Garza would be Heyward's only hit, as he finished 1-for-5. Heyward has struggled with his new team, but he's shown signs of life over the last three games, recording hits in each of them. He'll have to continue the recent trend if he wants to continue hitting second. Outside of a 27-homer campaign in 2012, Heyward has never hit more than 18 home runs in a season. Rotoworld.com

  • Luke Gregerson blows first save
    Luke Gregerson blew his first save Friday after giving up two runs in the 10th against the A's.

    Advice: Gregerson came in after the Astros scored twice in the top of the inning, but he faltered for the first time this year. Part of the blame goes to Jose Altuve, who should have had Stephen Vogt at first for the final out of the game, except he made a high underhand toss of the wet ball, giving Vogt time to race down the line and beat it out. The two runs Gregerson allowed were the first he's given up this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Chad Qualls records second save
    Chad Qualls retired the only batter he faced Friday to pick up his second save against the A's.

    Advice: Qualls was the third pitcher of the 11th, getting Brett Lawrie to fly out to center to end the game with the tying run on second. It's Qualls' second save in four days, but the Astros won't be replacing Luke Gregerson anytime soon. Rotoworld.com

  • Scott Kazmir goes seven scoreless
    Scott Kazmir blanked the Astros for seven innings and struck out seven in a no-decision Friday.

    Advice: Kazmir has been one of the AL's very best pitchers out of the starting game, amassing a 0.99 ERA and a 0.88 WHIP through four starts. Of course, the thing happened last year, and Kazmir kept it going for most of the first half, only to lose it after the break. Given his build and history of durability issues, something similar might happen again. He's a great bet for the short-term, though. Rotoworld.com

  • Zack Greinke limits Padres to four hits
    Zack Greinke allowed four hits over seven innings and combined with three relievers on a shutout of the Padres on Friday.

    Advice: Greinke struck out seven and walked three. Despite another elbow scare this spring and some slightly diminished velocity this month, he's opened up with a 3-0 record and a 1.35 ERA in four starts. Rotoworld.com

  • Yimi Garcia closes out the Padres
    Yimi Garcia got to close Friday and struck out two in a perfect ninth against the Padres.

    Advice: Garcia has looked like the Dodgers' best reliever dating back to the spring, so he was due to get a look in the ninth at some point. Of course, it's probably too late for him to rack up a bunch of saves, what with Kenley Jansen's return getting nearer. But those with an open roster spot could pick him up anyway. Rotoworld.com

  • Andrew Cashner goes seven in loss
    Andrew Cashner pitched seven innings of two-run ball Friday in a loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: At least this loss was less about defense than the previous two; he just didn't get the help offensively. Cashner has a 2.63 ERA through four starts, even though he's allowed 14 runs in 24 innings (half were unearned). He'll face the Astros next. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 10:37 pm
  • Carl Crawford homers, doubles
    Carl Crawford homered and doubled in a winning cause Friday against the Padres.

    Advice: Crawford has come under a little early fire, in part because Alex Guerrero needs more playing time and could be an alternative in left field. Crawford, though, likely remains the team's best option there against righties. He was off to an ugly start going into this one, though, with a .216 average and just one RBI in 37 at-bats. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 10:34 pm
  • Wandy Rodriguez holds Angels to one run
    Wandy Rodriguez yielded one run in five innings Friday against the Angels in his Rangers debut.

    Advice: Rodriguez struck out five, but he also walked three, hit a batter and threw two wild pitches. It was still a mildly encouraging outing, but given that he's working for a bad team in a tough park for pitchers, he doesn't seem like a good bet in AL-only leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 10:21 pm
  • Loney homers in return from disabled list
    James Loney hit a two-run home run off of R.A. Dickey in the fourth inning of Friday's blowout win over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Loney had not played since April 6th, as the first baseman's been recovering from a right oblique strain. He came back in style, swatting the big fly in the fourth inning of a game in which the Rays would score 12 runs on 13 hits. Loney hit .290/.386/.380 in 2014. He has a bit of pop in his bat, but he isn't worth owning in mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 10:01 pm
  • Gerrit Cole overwhelms Diamondbacks in win
    Gerrit Cole upped his record to 3-0 by limiting the Diamondbacks to one run in 7 2/3 innings on Friday.

    Advice: Cole struck out seven and walked two in the gem. He's allowed exactly one earned run in each of his last three starts, and he's struck out 27 batters in 24 2/3 innings for the year. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 9:51 pm
  • Mark Melancon notches fourth save
    Mark Melancon pitched a flawless ninth in a three-run game for his fourth save against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Melancon will remain quite shaky while dealing with diminished velocity, but the Pirates don't want to make a switch unless they have to. He's helped the cause with easy saves the last two days. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 9:49 pm
  • Travis hits solo homer in blowout loss
    Devon Travis hit a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Rays.

    Advice: That's home runs in back-to-back games for the infielder. He had been dealing with a rib injury suffered after he was hit by a pitch on April 19, but appears to be swinging fine. Though the Blue Jays went on to lose 12-3, they must be thrilled to have Travis back in the lineup. In the early going, he's hitting .375/.435/.732 with five home runs, 16 RBI and 12 runs scored. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 9:45 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez homers in win over Orioles
    Hanley Ramirez hit a solo home run in Friday's win over the Orioles.

    Advice: Ramirez went back-to-back with teammate David Ortiz in the fifth inning. He would finish the game 2-for-5. The former Red Sox prospect-turned-Dodger-turned Red Sox player is loving life in Boston right now and is slashing .274/.333/.565 with five home runs, 13 RBI and 11 runs scored. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 9:31 pm
  • Jose Quintana pitches well in no-decision
    Jose Quintana pitched well in a no-decision against the Royals on Friday, surrendering two runs on seven hits over seven strong innings.

    Advice: Quintana racked up five strikeouts on the evening while issuing just one free pass. It was the best start of the young season for the right-hander who still owns a troublesome 6.55 ERA and 1.55 WHIP over 22 innings. He'll look to carry over this strong start when he squares off against the Orioles in Baltimore on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 9:08 pm
  • Rangers purchase contract of Rodriguez
    Rangers purchased the contract of LHP Wandy Rodriguez from Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Rodriguez will make his Rangers debut with a start against the Angels on Friday. The 36-year-old posted a 6.75 ERA and 1.69 WHIP over 26 2/3 innings with the Pirates in 2014. Though he looked strong in spring training, he's unlikely to make an impact in mixed leagues, especially pitching half of his games in Arlington. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 4:03 pm
  • James Loney returns from disabled list
    Rays activated 1B James Loney from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Loney needed just one rehab game to show that he was over his right oblique strain. The first baseman wound up missing just over a week of action. Allan Dykstra, who had been filling in at first in Loney's absence, has been sent down in a corresponding move. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 5:05 am
  • Jason Heyward goes 2-for-4 against Nats
    Jason Heyward went 2-for-4 on Thursday, giving him his first multihit game since he went 3-for-5 on Opening Day.

    Advice: Heyward's .213 average would be less of a problem if he were drawing his typical number of walks, but he's worked just one in his first 61 at-bats. The Cardinals are winning and can stay patient, but at some point, they might decide they'd be better off with Kolten Wong hitting second. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:41 pm
  • Melancon bounces back for his third save
    Mark Melancon retired the Cubs in order to pick up his third save of the season in Thursday's win over the Cubs.

    Advice: Melancon's velocity was still low, but the Cubs were ineffective nevertheless. The right-hander got a flyout, strikeout and then ground out to end it. Melancon got a vote of confidence from manager Clint Hurdle on Thursday, a day after melting down in the ninth inning. However, fantasy owners will want to continue monitoring Melancon's velocity and the bullpen situation in Pittsburgh as the calendar turns to May. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:49 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez getting night off on Thursday
    Hanley Ramirez is not in the Red Sox starting lineup Thursday night versus the Rays.

    Advice: It's just a day of rest for Hanley. Allen Craig is starting in left field and batting seventh for the Red Sox against Rays right-hander Jake Odorizzi. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:15 pm
  • Loney (oblique) ready for rehab assignment
    James Loney (oblique) is set to begin a rehab assignment Thursday with High-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Loney suffered a mild right oblique strain while taking batting practice before the Rays' second regular-season game. The first baseman will probably be activated from the 15-day disabled list over the weekend. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:41 am
  • Travis powers Jays to win with a 2-run homer
    Devon Travis went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run and a stolen base in Wednesday's win versus the Orioles.

    Advice: Travis, making his first start since Sunday, broke a 2-2 tie with a two-run home run off of Ubaldo Jimenez. The blast proved to be the deciding factor in the game. Travis now has four home runs, 14 RBI, and an outstanding .388/.434/.714 triple-slash line in 53 plate appearances to begin the season. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 6:51 pm
  • Wandy Rodriguez to start for Rangers Friday
    Wandy Rodriguez will start for the Rangers against the Angels on Friday.

    Advice: Rodriguez was released by the Braves in early April and the Rangers signed him to a minor league contract a few days later. Rodriguez has struck out 10 over seven innings in two starts thus far. He'll have to be added to the team's 40-man roster prior to the start. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 5:07 pm
  • Pirates sticking with Mark Melancon at closer
    Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said Wednesday that he's sticking with Mark Melancon at closer.

    Advice: Melancon blew a save in brutal fashion Tuesday night against the Cubs, yielding three runs in the top of the ninth inning with diminished velocity on his cutter. He has surrendered six runs in 6 1/3 innings this season and will be given the night off Wednesday. It might be smart to stash Tony Watson in fantasy leagues, though the Bucs would likely try a committee first if they do eventually abandon Melancon. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 1:25 pm
  • Devon Travis (rib) returns to Jays' lineup
    Devon Travis (rib) is back in the Blue Jays' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Travis had missed the previous contest after being hit in the ribs with a pitch on Sunday. The young second baseman is hitting in the No. 2 spot in the lineup Wednesday against Ubaldo Jimenez and the Orioles, making him a viable DFS play. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 12:46 pm
  • Carl Crawford hitless in return to lineup
    Carl Crawford (illness) went hitless in two at-bats Tuesday in his return to the lineup.

    Advice: Crawford had been under the weather for a few days. He's struggled so far this season (.242/.265/.303) but will continue to start regularly in left field against right-handers. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:31 am
  • Qualls picks up first save with a clean ninth
    Chad Qualls struck out two batters in a clean ninth inning to record his first save as the Astros earned a 6-3 victory over the Mariners on Tuesday.

    Advice: Qualls was filling in for regular closer Luke Gregerson, who had pitched on three consecutive days with a total of 41 pitches. Qualls made quick work of the Mariners, striking out Kyle Seager and Justin Ruggiano before getting Logan Morrison to ground out to shortstop to end the game. Barring injuries, Qualls shouldn't see save situations with any regularity. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:23 pm
  • Melancon blows two-run lead as Pirates lose
    Mark Melancon blew the save in Tuesday's loss to the Cubs, serving up three runs in an inning of work.

    Advice: Travis Sawchik of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported continued lower velocity for Melancon. His cutter sat in the high 80's after averaging close to 92 MPH last season. The right-hander loaded the bases with no outs in the ninth inning before Starlin Castro plated two with a single to tie the game, and Welington Castillo put the Cubs on top with a ground out. The Pirates, obviously, have to be concerned about Melancon's velocity and may have to consider making a change if his struggles persist. He has allowed six runs with a 4/3 K/BB ratio in 6 1/3 innings so far. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:29 pm
  • Hanley collects two more hits against Rays
    Hanley Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Tuesday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Ramirez had two of the team's seven hits against Rays starter Chris Archer. The stolen base was his first of the season after swiping 14 last year. The shortstop-turned-outfielder has been everything the Red Sox paid for in the early part of the season, batting .269/.328/.558 with five home runs and 12 RBI in 13 games. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:10 pm
  • Loney (oblique) expects weekend return
    James Loney (oblique) expects to be activated from the disabled list this weekend.

    Advice: Loney suffered a mild right oblique strain prior to the second game of the season, but he took batting practice Tuesday without incident. He expects to play one minor league rehab game before returning. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 1:12 pm
  • Travis (rib) not in Tuesday's lineup
    Devon Travis (rib) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Orioles.

    Advice: Travis had to leave Sunday's game after he was hit in the side by a pitch. X-rays ruled out a fracture, but he's presumably still dealing with some soreness. Consider him day-to-day. Ryan Goins will fill in at second base. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 12:59 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez (illness) in Tuesday's lineup
    Hanley Ramirez (illness) is in Tuesday's lineup against the Rays.

    Advice: Ramirez made an early exit from Monday's Patriots' Day game against the Orioles after just two innings due to dizziness brought on by a cold, but he's feeling a lot better now. He'll bat cleanup against Chris Archer. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 12:17 pm
  • Gregerson grabs third save in win vs Mariners
    Luke Gregerson picked up his third save of the season, closing out the Astros' 7-5 win over the Mariners on Monday.

    Advice: Gregerson brought the tying run to the plate after issuing a two-out walk to Kyle Seager, but he got Seth Smith to strike out swinging to end the ballgame. Gregerson remains unscored upon while converting all three save opportunities with a 7/1 K/BB ratio in seven innings. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:46 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez (cold) expects to play Tues.
    Hanley Ramirez (illness) expects to play Tuesday in Boston's series-opener versus the Rays.

    Advice: Ramirez was removed from Monday's Patriots' Day game against the Orioles after just two innings due to dizziness brought on by a cold. It was a wet, nasty morning and early afternoon at Boston's Fenway Park. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 1:03 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez exits Monday due to illness
    Hanley Ramirez left Monday's game due to illness.

    Advice: There's a flu bug going around some MLB clubhouses and Hanley apparent caught it. He grounded out to first base in the bottom of the first inning and was then replaced in the top of the third by Allen Craig. Ramirez, who already has five homers and 12 RBI in 12 games with Boston, can be considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:53 am
  • Hanley removed Monday with apparent injury
    Hanley Ramirez was pulled from Monday's game against the Orioles with an apparent injury.

    Advice: It's not clear what happened. Hanley grounded out to first base in the bottom of the first inning and took the field in the top of the second, but Allen Craig was in left field to open the top of the third. There should be an update soon from the Red Sox. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:38 am
  • James Loney (oblique) set for rehab games
    James Loney (oblique) will play a rehab game or two this week for High-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Loney is eligible to be activated from the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday, and it sounds like he'll be ready. "It's been hard, just sitting there and watching games," Loney said of the first DL stint of his career. "It goes by. It's just one of those things." He suffered a strained oblique during batting practice before the Rays' second game of the season. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 5:45 am
  • Kazmir pitches into eighth, allowing two runs
    Scott Kazmir pitched another great game on Sunday, flustering the Royals with five strikeouts and holding them to two runs over 7 1/3 innings in the A's eventual loss.

    Advice: In a game that saw four ejections, Scott Kazmir rose above the fire with another great outing. The two runs marked the most he's allowed in any of his three starts. For the season, he's given up just three runs on 10 hits over 20 1/3 innings, good for a 1.33 ERA. He's also fanned 23 and walked just six. The 30-year-old lefty will put these numbers up against the hapless Houston Astros (.202 team batting average) in his next start. Rotoworld.com

  • Cashner picks up first win of season
    Andrew Cashner moved to 1-2 in Sunday's win over the Cubs, pitching six innings without allowing an earned run.

    Advice: The Cubs did manage two runs off Cashner in the first inning, but both were unearned. After the early trouble, Cashner settled down and kept the Cubs off the board the rest of the way. He struck out five and walked two while scattering five hits across his six innings. Cashner has a 2.65 ERA through three starts. His next outing will come against the rival Dodgers. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 2:31 pm
  • Cole moves to 2-0 as Pirates sweep Brewers
    Gerrit Cole moved to 2-0 on Sunday after limiting the Brewers to two earned runs over six frames in a 5-2 victory for the host Pirates.

    Advice: Cole had some trouble in the second inning but was otherwise pretty sharp, yielding only five hits and one walk while striking out six. He has a cool 3.18 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 20/5 K/BB ratio in 17 innings (three starts) this season for the Bucs, who are now back to .500 (6-6) after sweeping their weekend set against the Brewers. The 24-year-old right-hander will try to keep it all working next time out in Arizona. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 1:33 pm
  • Jose Quintana creamed by Tigers Sunday
    Jose Quintana was clobbered for nine runs across four innings of work in Sunday's loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: Quintana was one pitch away from getting out of the first inning unscathed, but he left a pitch over the plate and Yoenis Cespedes lined it over the left-field wall for a grand slam. Cespedes got to him again with a two-run shot in the third. The left-hander has now had two clunkers in three starts, but impatient owners need to sit tight. Quintana will rebound and has a decent shot to do so next weekend versus the Royals. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 1:19 pm
  • X-rays confirm no fracture for Travis (rib)
    X-rays confirmed that Devon Travis did not suffer a left rib fracture.

    Advice: Travis had to leave Sunday's game following a hit by pitch, but he managed to escape with just a bruise. The Blue Jays are considering the second baseman day-to-day. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 12:02 pm
  • Crawford (illness) still under the weather
    Carl Crawford (illness) might not be available off the bench Sunday.

    Advice: In fact, he might not come to the ballpark at all. Crawford is under the weather and was given IV fluids on Saturday. The Dodgers are off Monday, so they seem likely to just tell the outfielder to get some extra rest before joining them for their road trip beginning Tuesday. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 11:29 am
  • Devon Travis exits game after HBP in side
    Devon Travis left Sunday's game versus the Braves after being hit in the left side by a pitch.

    Advice: The initial diagnosis is a left rib contusion, although he seems like to be sent for X-rays. Travis stayed in the game initially but appeared to aggravated the injury on a dive back into first base on a pickoff attempt. The second baseman looked to be in quite a bit of pain as he exited the field. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 10:43 am
  • Zack Greinke earns win over Rockies
    Zack Greinke improved to 2-0 after allowing three runs over 6 2/3 innings against the Rockies on Saturday.

    Advice: Greinke has a 1.83 ERA and an even more impressive 0.71 WHIP after three starts. With the Padres and Giants next on the schedule, he's a definite threat for NL pitcher of the month honors. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 10:26 pm
  • Carl Crawford out sick Saturday vs. Rockies
    Carl Crawford is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup on Saturday due to an illness.

    Advice: Andre Ethier will take over in left field. Crawford's fantasy contributions have been minimal this season (.258, 0 HR, 1 RBI, 0 SB) so it's not the end of the world. He could be back for the series finale Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:22 pm
  • Heyward connects for solo HR vs. Reds
    Jason Heyward connected for a solo homer Saturday against the Reds.

    Advice: It was his first home run of the season and his only hit in four at-bats on Saturday. Hitting .227 through 10 games, Heyward is off to a slow start with his new team, but this isn't something out of the ordinary. He came into Saturday's action with a .729 OPS between March and April for his career. Things should get better as the calendar flips to May and beyond. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 2:58 pm
  • Carl Crawford (ankle) goes 1-for-5 in return
    Carl Crawford (ankle) returned to the Dodgers lineup on Friday, going 1-for-5 in a victory over the Rockies.

    Advice: Crawford sat out Wednesday's contest after jamming his ankle on Tuesday, but the injury appears to have been very minor. The veteran outfielder is off to a bit of a slow start in 2015, slashing .258/.281/.323 with one RBI and zero stolen bases in his first nine games. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 5:19 am
  • Mark Melancon secures first save of 2015
    Mark Melancon picked up his first save of the 2015 season, needing just two pitches to record the final out against the Brewers on Friday.

    Advice: The Pirates began the ninth inning with a four-run advantage, but Antonio Bastardo got himself into a jam before Melancon was called in to put out the fire. He's been shaky in the early going, posting a 6.23 ERA and 1.38 WHIP over his first 4 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 7:10 pm
  • Devon Travis hitting leadoff Friday
    Devon Travis is batting leadoff versus Julio Teheran and the Braves on Friday.

    Advice: He could remain in the spot for a while if Jose Reyes (rib) needs a trip to the disabled list. Travis is off to a .371/.421/.657 start at the plate in his first 38 big league plate appearances. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 12:07 pm
  • Loney (oblique) could be ready April 22
    Rays manager Kevin Cash said Wednesday that James Loney (oblique) might be ready when eligible.

    Advice: Loney was placed on the 15-day disabled list April 7, so the first day he can be activated is April 22. The first baseman is working his way back from a right oblique strain. It was called mild from the jump. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 6:06 am
  • Devon Travis goes 3-for-5, homers
    Devon Travis went 3-for-5 with a homer and a double versus the Rays on Wednesday.

    Advice: Travis also homered on Opening Day, so this makes two for him. With the Jays scoring in bunches so far, Travis has been good for six runs scored and six RBI in nine games from the bottom of the order. That's allowed him to be useful in mixed leagues so far, but if the runs begin to dry up for the Jays, Travis's value likely will, too. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:14 pm
  • Crawford out Wednesday after jamming foot
    Carl Crawford is not in the Dodgers' lineup Wednesday due to a stiff ankle.

    Advice: Crawford jammed his foot in Tuesday's game, but he told reporters he's available off the bench Wednesday. Scott Van Slyke started in left field for the Dodgers Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:48 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez slugs two-run homer Wed.
    Hanley Ramirez slugged a two-run homer in Boston's loss to the Nationals on Wednesday.

    Advice: It was a fifth-inning shot off Gio Gonzalez that sailed over the Green Monster. Hanley had no other hits on the afternoon but he's off to a very promising start with his new team, boasting a .923 OPS, four home runs, and nine RBI in eight games. Now if only he could pitch. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 1:51 pm
  • Pirates will be eyeing Melancon's velocity
    Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said that while he's not concerned, he will be keeping an eye on Mark Melancon's velocity.

    Advice: Melancon is averaging just 88.7 mph with his fastball so far this season, which is a notable drop from the 91.6 mph he averaged last year. Pitchers sometimes take a little while before their velocity returns, and obviously that's what the Pirates are hoping will occur here. "We’re going watch and we’re going to communicate," Hurdle said. "Concern is not a word that I’m going to use. Disappointed is not a word I’m going to use." Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 6:59 am
  • Quintana goes six strong in win over Indians
    Jose Quintana went six strong innings, allowing only an unearned run, as the White Sox defeated the Indians 4-1 Tuesday.

    Advice: Quintana rebounded from a forgettable 2015 debut to pick up his first win of the season, fanning six while allowing just three hits on the evening. His numbers are still skewed after allowing five runs over five innings against the Royals his first time out, but Tuesday was more in line with what we've come to expect from the southpaw. Quintana will take a 4.09 ERA into a rematch with the Tribe on Monday. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:56 pm
  • Hanley (foot) in Tuesday's lineup vs. Nats
    Hanley Ramirez (foot) is in Tuesday's lineup against the Nationals.

    Advice: Good to hear. Ramirez left Monday's game after fouling a ball of his right foot, but a CT scan came back negative. The full lineup for Boston vs. Stephen Strasburg: Mookie Betts CF, Dustin Pedroia 2B, David Ortiz DH, Ramirez LF, Pablo Sandoval 3B, Mike Napoli 1B, Daniel Nava RF, Ryan Hanigan C, Brock Holt SS. Rotoworld.com

  • Cashner K's nine, but falls to 0-2 vs D'Backs
    Andrew Cashner fell to 0-2 on Monday, yielding four runs (all unearned) in six innings versus the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: All four runs scored in the second inning. Cashner allowed back-to-back singles to start the inning. The right-hander might have seen his way out of the inning if second baseman Yangervis Solarte hadn't made a one-out throwing error to allow the first run to score. With two outs, Ender Inciarte doubled in two runs and Chris Owings singled in the fourth run. Overall, Cashner yielded seven hits, walked one, and struck out nine.
