  • Eovaldi hit hard by Mets in no-decision
    Nathan Eovaldi was hit hard in a no-decision against the Mets on Sunday, allowing four runs on seven hits in just 4 1/3 innings of work.

    Advice: The hard-throwing right-hander did manage to rack up six strikeouts on the night without issuing a free pass, but couldn't get himself out of a jam in the fifth inning to earn a potential victory. While he owns an impressive 20/5 K/BB ratio through 21 2/3 innings on the season, Eovaldi will carry a 4.15 and worrisome 1.66 WHIP into Sunday's matchup against the Red Sox in Boston. Rotoworld.com

  • Martinez pitches six innings of shutout ball
    Nick Martinez did not allow a run in Sunday's extra-innings win over the Angels.

    Advice: Over his six innings on the mound, Martinez scattered seven hits and walked two. He added a pair of strikeouts to complete the line. This was Martinez's second shutout outing of the season. He wouldn't factor into the decision, though, as the Rangers would need extras to cap off the 5-4 win. Through four starts, Martinez holds a microscopic ERA of 0.35, a slightly more visible WHIP of 1.12 and an 11/8 K/BB ratio covering 26 innings. These numbers are not sustainable, but we'll let him enjoy it while it lasts. He'll try to continue to baffle the universe when he takes on the A's at home in his next start. Rotoworld.com

  • Gibson allows just two runs in seven innings
    Kyle Gibson pitched a great game on Sunday, surrendering two runs over seven innings in an extra-innings win over the Mariners.

    Advice: Gibson struck out three and walked three in the contest. Both of the Mariner runs off Gibson came in the fourth inning, when Seth Smith hit a solo homer and Logan Morrison managed an RBI grounder. Gibson recovered to make it through seven innings, though he would not factor into the decision. Despite the great start, Gibson's overall numbers are troubling. He boasts a 5/12 K/BB ratio over 22 1/3 innings and a 1.70 WHIP. Predictably, his ERA is close to 5.00. Gibson strikes out so few batters that he absolutely has to show pinpoint control, and that has rarely been the case this season. Until he improves his control, he's not usable in mixed leagues. He'll try to build off of Sunday's start when the White Sox waltz to town next weekend. Rotoworld.com

  • Morrow superb over seven innings vs LAD
    Brandon Morrow pitched a gem against the Dodgers on Sunday, allowing just one run over seven innings.

    Advice: This is the third time in four starts that Morrow has pitched seven innings (he went six innings in his other start). Pretty impressive for a guy who had to win the No. 5 spot in the rotation out of Spring Training. Against the Dodgers, he struck out four, scattered five hits and walked just one. Morrow's only mistake came on a solo home run by Alex Guerrero in the fifth inning. Otherwise, everything came up aces. Through 27 innings, he holds a 2.67 ERA and a 19/6 K/BB ratio. As long as he stays healthy, he has the talent to put up numbers. Morrow will look to continue his sparkling run on a mountainous road date with the Rockies next Saturday. Rotoworld.com

  • Volquez pitches into sixth allowing five runs
    Edinson Volquez allowed five runs (one earned), all in the sixth inning, in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Outside of a rough sixth inning, Volquez pitched well, striking out six and walking just two while holding the White Sox to five hits. Only one run in that sixth frame was earned, as it was Mike Moustakas' run-scoring fielding error with runners on first and third which opened the floodgates. Volquez proceeded to serve up three singles to bring in an additional three runs. The fifth run would score on a single after the right-hander was lifted from the game. Because just one of the runs was earned, Volquez's ERA actually dropped in the contest. He has been absolutely superb the first month of the season, boasting a 0.85 WHIP and a 1.91 ERA over 27 1/3 innings. He'll be pushed back a day in the rotation as he serves a five-game suspension for his part in a Thursday melee with the White Sox, which puts him in line to start against the Tigers on an upcoming homestand.

  • Nolasco (elbow) feels good after rehab start
    Ricky Nolasco indicated feeling good after tossing 66 pitches over five innings in his minor league rehab start with Low-A Cedar Rapids on Sunday.

    Advice: He'll need a few more outings to stretch out and build up his stamina before he's ready to rejoin the Twins rotation, but this was a nice step in the right direction for him. Trevor May is likely on the outs in the rotation once Nolasco returns. Rotoworld.com

  • Lobstein goes seven as Tigers beat Tribe
    Kyle Lobstein yielded three earned runs over seven innings but the Tigers topped the Indians on Sunday.

    Advice: Lobstein gave up six hits, walked two, and struck out four Cleveland batters in the solid outing. He's done a nice job of eating innings for the Tigers with Justin Verlander (triceps) on the shelf, boasting a 2-1 record and 3.50 ERA through 18 innings (three starts). A road date with the Royals is next. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:30 pm
  • Carrasco hammered for five earned in loss
    Carlos Carrasco was hammered for five earned runs in 4 1/3 innings Sunday as the Indians fell to the Tigers.

    Advice: Carrasco had to be pulled from his last start after just 60 pitches due to general body tightness and he looked off from the jump on Sunday afternoon in Detroit, yielding two runs in the first inning, one run in the third inning, and two more in the fifth. Carrasco was struck in the face by a Melky Cabrera comebacker two weeks ago. Maybe he's dealing with some lingering effects, both mental and physical. The right-hander faces the Blue Jays at home next. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:23 pm
  • Chris Archer brilliant again in Rays' victory
    Chris Archer kept rolling along Sunday, yielding just two hits and one walk while striking out seven across seven shutout frames in a 5-1 win over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Archer allowed two of the first four hitters he faced to reach base and then just one got on the rest of the way. The young right-hander is on some kind of streak, as he hasn't allowed an earned run in his last four outings after a so-so Opening Day start. He already has three starts this season where he's given up two hits or fewer and no runs across seven innings. Archer will take on the Orioles in Baltimore next weekend. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:12 pm
  • Haren pitches well, Fish win fifth straight
    Dan Haren limited the Nationals to two runs over five innings Sunday in the Marlins' 6-2 victory.

    Advice: Haren gave up a bomb to Bryce Harper in the top of the second inning but otherwise looked strong, yielding only three total hits and whiffing three Nationals. He was reluctant to join the Marlins this offseason, but the 34-year-old right-hander owns an impressive 3.38 ERA and 0.92 WHIP through 24 innings. He'll try to keep it all rolling next time out against the Phillies. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:05 pm
  • Gio allows six earned, Nats drop 5th straight
    Gio Gonzalez gave up six earned runs in five innings Sunday as the Nationals fell to the Marlins.

    Advice: Gonzalez struck out eight and walked just one, but Miami's offense pounded him for 10 hits -- including three triples. Gio now has a rough 1-2 record, 5.01 ERA, and 1.71 WHIP in 23 1/3 innings this season and the Nationals have lost five straight games. Gonzalez will try to get on the right track next weekend against the Phillies. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:57 pm
  • Giants/Rockies postponed because to rain
    Sunday's game between the Giants and Rockies has been postponed due to rain.

    Advice: No makeup date has been announced yet. Scheduled starters Tim Lincecum and Tyler Matzek will presumably be pushed back a day. Rotoworld.com

  • Mo confirms Waino (Achilles) likely done
    Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak confirmed in an interview on KMOX 1120 AM on Sunday that Adam Wainwright (Achilles) is likely done for the season.

    Advice: "I would imagine that with this injury he will not pitch again this season, but we want to wait for the reports Monday," the GM said. It's confirmation of an earlier report from FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal as well as what others had speculated. Losing Wainwright is obviously a major hit to the Cards as they seek their third straight division title and fifth straight playoff appearance. Rotoworld.com

  • Adam Wainwright (Achilles) placed on DL
    Cardinals placed RHP Adam Wainwright on the 15-day disabled list with a left ankle and Achilles injury.

    Advice: Wainwright will undergo an MRI on Monday, but the feeling is that he blew out his Achilles on Saturday and will need season-ending surgery. Tyler Lyons and Tim Cooney are the most likely options to take his spot in the rotation later this week. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Waino (Achilles) likely done for 2015
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the "expectation" is that Adam Wainwright will miss the rest of the season with a left Achilles injury.

    Advice: He's yet to undergo an MRI (that comes Monday), but the Cardinals don't appear to be optimistic about a diagnosis. It's obviously a massive blow for St. Louis, as Wainwright had allayed some concerns about his elbow with a strong start (1.44 ERA) to the season. The club does at least have some depth to fall back on with Marco Gonzales at Triple-A, although he's currently out with a shoulder/pectoral issue. Gonzales and Jaime Garcia (shoulder) are the likely long-term options to replace Waino in the rotation, but for now the club is likely to go with Tyler Lyons or Tim Cooney. They could also consider moving Carlos Villanueva from the bullpen to the rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • Ian Kennedy torched for eight runs
    Ian Kennedy was blasted for eight runs in 4 1/3 innings by the Dodgers in his return from the disabled list Saturday.

    Advice: Kennedy, who didn't make a rehab start during his brief time on the DL, gave up three homers in a start for the first time since Aug. 16, 2013. Expect a better showing next week in a home start against the Rockies. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:36 pm
  • De La Rosa fans seven in second start
    Jorge De La Rosa struck out seven Giants on Saturday, allowing two runs on four hits.

    Advice: De La Rosa missed most of April with a groin injury. His first start, on April 20th against the Padres, was a nine-run disaster, but the pitcher showed improvement on Saturday. De La Rosa put up respectable numbers for the Rockies last season, posting a 4.10 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP over 184 1/3 innings. He'll try to give up fewer than nine runs when he faces the Padres again in his next start. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:09 pm
  • Wainwright: 'Thought I got hit by something'
    Adam Wainwright acknowledged after Saturday's game that the injury is to the back of his left ankle.

    Advice: In other words, it's his Achilles tendon. And if he ruptured it, the ace right-hander could be done for the rest of the 2015 season. "I thought I got hit by something," said Wainwright, who pulled up lame after a fifth-inning pop-out on Saturday night in Milwaukee. "If you look at the replay, I get out of the box and I looked back to think the catcher’s mask must have hit me or the bat must have hit me, something must have hit me." Rotoworld.com

  • Waino leaves with apparent Achilles injury
    Adam Wainwright was lifted from Saturday's game against the Brewers with an apparent left foot injury.

    Advice: Wainwright pulled up lame on his first step out of the batter's box following a fifth-inning pop-out and could barely make his way off the field. It looked like an Achilles injury, though the Cardinals are calling it a "left ankle injury" for now. Wainwright had tossed four scoreless innings against Milwaukee, lowering his season ERA to 1.44. He'll be reevaluated back in St. Louis. Rotoworld.com

  • Pads activate Ian Kennedy for Saturday start
    Padres activated RHP Ian Kennedy from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Kennedy missed his first few turns through the rotation because of a strained hamstring. He opted for extended spring training instead of a minor league rehab assignment and will make his 2015 debut on Saturday night against the Dodgers. The 30-year-old workhorse led San Diego in wins, innings pitched, and strikeouts last season. Lefty reliever Frank Garces was sent down to Triple-A El Paso in the corresponding roster move.

  • Edinson Volquez suspended for five games
    Edinson Volquez was suspended five games for his role in Thursday's altercation with the White Sox.

    Advice: Volquez attempted to land a punch on an unsuspecting White Sox player during the fracas. He'll have his next start pushed back a day, otherwise the suspension won't affect his fantasy value. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:32 am
  • Nolasco has rehab start pushed back
    Ricky Nolasco's next minor league rehab start was pushed back to Sunday.

    Advice: He had been scheduled to pitch Saturday, and the change doesn't appear to be injury related. He's expected to rejoin the Twins in mid-May. Rotoworld.com

  • Ian Kennedy (hamstring) will return Saturday
    Padres manager Bud Black announced Thursday that Ian Kennedy (hamstring) will return to the Padres' starting rotation Saturday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Kennedy suffered a left hamstring strain in his first start of the 2015 season, but he only wound up missing two turns. The 30-year-old right-hander struck out 207 batters in 201 innings last season alongside a 3.63 ERA and is pitching for a big contract in his walk year. Odrisamer Despaigne is headed back to the bullpen. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:03 am
  • Nolasco (elbow) throws 60-pitch session
    Ricky Nolasco (elbow) threw a 60-pitch bullpen session Wednesday.

    Advice: Nolasco is all set for a rehab start with Low-A Cedar Rapids on Saturday. He'll likely throw around 75 pitches in that first rehab outing and should need a few before returning to the Twins in early May. Rotoworld.com

  • Kennedy (hamstring) throws side session Wed.
    Ian Kennedy (hamstring) threw a side session Wednesday.

    Advice: Kennedy said the session went well. The right-hander continues to work his way back from a left hamstring strain suffered in his first start of the season. Kennedy will likely be activated and start Saturday against the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:12 pm
  • Carrasco pulled early because he was 'tight'
    Indians manager Terry Francona revealed that Carlos Carrasco was pulled from Tuesday's start after just 60 pitches because he was "tight."

    Advice: Tito didn't specify which part of the body was tight, but he also didn't sound concerned at all about the right-hander. "It's a little ambiguous," Francona said. "I might have overreacted." Carrasco should be fine for his next scheduled start, but check back on his status later in the week just to make sure. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:58 am
  • Lincecum hurls six solid frames as Giants win
    Tim Lincecum allowed just one run over six innings to help lead the Giants past the Dodgers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Lincecum worked around five hits and three walks, relenting just once in the fifth inning when Alex Guerrero plated a run with a double. The right-hander struck out five on the evening as he picked up his first win. It's been a while since Lincecum was an effective starting pitcher, but he has been solid in his first three starts, owning a 2.00 ERA with a 1.22 WHIP, and a 14/7 K/BB ratio in 18 innings. Lincecum will face the Rockies at Coors Field in his next outing, which may prove to be a troublesome endeavor. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:47 pm
  • Martinez solid over 6 innings in no-decision
    Nick Martinez was solid in a start against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday, giving up one run in six innings, but took a no-decision in the Rangers' win.

    Advice: Martinez scattered five hits and a walk while striking out three. The D'Backs scored their only run in the second inning on a Nick Ahmed ground out to plate Yasmany Tomas. Martinez has been a bright spot for the Rangers. Over his first three starts, he has a 0.45 ERA with a 1.00 WHIP and a 9/6 K/BB ratio in 20 innings. Martinez will have to deal with a tough Mariners lineup at home in his next start. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:53 pm
  • Morrow serves up five runs in a no-decision
    Brandon Morrow yielded five runs in six innings in a no-decision as the Padres beat the Rockies on Tuesday.

    Advice: Morrow allowed six hits and a walk but the Rockies were able to arrange them well enough to plate five runs. Morrow struck out three on the evening in what was the worst of his three starts to begin the season. The right-hander has a 3.15 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP, and a 15/5 K/BB ratio in 20 innings. Morrow still hasn't gotten a decision; he'll hope for a win against the Dodgers on Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:00 pm
  • Carlos Carrasco earns win in return to mound
    Carlos Carrasco struck out eight while allowing one run over five innings in the Indians' 6-2 win over the White Sox Tuesday.

    Advice: Carrasco gave up just four hits without walking a batter on the evening. The lone damage against him was a first inning solo homer by Jose Abreu. With some lingering concerns about his health -- the start was his first since getting hit in the jaw by a comebacker last week -- the Indians limited him to 60 pitches, but he was dominant enough that he could have gone deeper. He should go deeper his next time out, which will come Monday against the Royals. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:49 pm
  • Lobstein takes loss despite six solid innings
    Kyle Lobstein pitched well over six innings, allowing just one run, but took the loss on Tuesday versus the Yankees.

    Advice: Lobstein allowed the one run on a first-inning RBI double to Mark Teixeira. He might have lucked into a no-decision had reliever Ian Krol not allowed three runs in the top of the seventh, rendering the two the Tigers scored between the seventh and ninth innings useless. Lobstein yielded three hits and four walks while striking out three on the evening. If Lobstein makes the next trip through the rotation, he'll start next at home against the Indians. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:14 pm
  • Eovaldi's 7 strong innings lead Yanks to win
    Nathan Eovaldi held the Tigers to one run over seven innings to record his first win of the season on Tuesday.

    Advice: Eovaldi scattered eight hits and a walk while striking out four on the evening. The Tigers entered the game boasting one of the American League's top offenses, so holding it to a run is a feat. The only run came in Eovaldi's final inning, when Yoenis Cespedes hit a sacrifice fly. Now with a 3.12 ERA, Eovaldi will look for his second win of the season in his next start at home against the Mets. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:11 pm
  • Gonzalez takes no-decision in 6 IP vs. Cards
    Gio Gonzalez tossed six shutout innings in a no-decision as the Nationals beat the Cardinals 2-1 in 10 innings on Tuesday.

    Advice: Gonzalez allowed 12 base runners -- eight on hits, four on walks -- but the Cardinals couldn't bring any of them home against the lefty. Gonzalez struck out four on the evening. Though Tuesday's results are good, Gonzalez's continued issue with walks is concerning. He has walked 10 in 18 1/3 innings to begin the season. He'll try to right his ship in his next start in Miami against the Marlins. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:06 pm
  • Archer strikes out nine in tough-luck loss
    Chris Archer struck out nine over 5 2/3 innings, allowing only an unearned run, but he took the loss against the Red Sox on Tuesday.

    Advice: Archer scattered seven hits and a walk during the outing, with a throwing error in the third inning accounting for the Red Sox' only run. Archer has now struck out 30 batters over 25 1/3 innings this year, owning a 1.07 ERA and 0.83 WHIP through four starts. The Blue Jays' hitters are Archer's next target, and the two sides will square off Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:06 pm
  • Haren takes the loss with 6 IP vs. Phillies
    Dan Haren allowed the Phillies to score four times in his six innings of work, earning a loss on Tuesday.

    Advice: Haren pitched well in his first two starts, but hit a stumbling block against the Phillies as he allowed home runs to both Freddy Galvis and Ryan Howard. They accounted for two of the mere four hits he allowed on the night. He also walked three batters and struck out seven. Haren will bring his 3.32 ERA into his next start at home against the Nationals. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 6:47 pm
  • De La Rosa hammered in return to the mound
    Jorge De La Rosa's season debut didn't go well, as the lefty was hammered for nine runs (seven earned) in two innings in a loss to the Padres on Monday.

    Advice: De La Rosa missed the first two weeks of the season with a groin injury. The Padres had no issues squaring him up, as the lefty yielded nine hits and a walk while striking out three. The nine runs were split up with five in the first inning and four in the second. De La Rosa will try to bounce back in his next start at home against the Giants. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:57 pm
  • Gibson struggles over five innings in a loss
    Kyle Gibson took the loss on Monday against the Royals, serving up four runs (three earned) over five innings.

    Advice: Gibson has shown subpar command and a severe inability to miss bats in two of three starts to begin the season. The right-hander allowed only four hits to the Royals, but issued four walks and recorded zero strikeouts -- his second zero-strikeout start already. Gibson will bring a 5.87 ERA, a 1.96 WHIP, and a 3/9 K/BB ratio over 15 1/3 innings into his next start against the Mariners in Seattle. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:13 pm
  • Volquez dominates Twins over seven innings
    Edinson Volquez was superb again on Monday, holding the Twins to one run over seven innings en route to a win.

    Advice: The Twins' only run scored in the second inning on a throwing error by Eric Hosmer. Volquez allowed five hits and a walk while striking out five, giving him three excellent starts to begin the regular season following a miserable spring. He's 2-1 with a 1.99 ERA, a 0.75 WHIP, and a 17/3 K/BB ratio in 22 2/3 innings. Volquez will look to keep it going over the weekend on the road against the White Sox. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:11 pm
  • Kennedy 'looked good' in extended spring game
    Padres manager Bud Black said that Ian Kennedy (hamstring) "looked good" during an 81-pitch appearance in an extended spring training game Monday.

    Advice: "He looked good, [threw] all his pitches," Black said. "He had a few strikeouts. They nicked him for a couple runs, but overall he's throwing the ball good, no issues with the hamstring." Black wouldn't officially confirm that Kennedy was slated to rejoin the rotation on Saturday against the Dodgers when first eligible, but all signs point to it happening. Odrisamer Despaigne will head back to the bullpen. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 7:10 pm
  • Jorge De La Rosa activated from disabled list
    Rockies activated LHP Jorge De La Rosa from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: He'll make his season debut on Monday against the Padres after getting a late start to the season due to a groin ailment. De La Rosa has fared pretty well in his career at Coors Field (3.98 ERA), but he's a risky play in this one against a good Padres lineup. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 2:48 pm
  • De La Rosa (groin) to debut Monday vs. SD
    Jorge De La Rosa (groin) will make his 2015 season debut on Monday night versus the Padres.

    Advice: De La Rosa missed the first two weeks of the regular season with a groin injury that bothered him throughout spring training. The 34-year-old left-hander pitched pretty well in a pair of minor league rehab starts, but he's not a great fantasy bet against a good Padres offense Monday at Coors Field. De La Rosa posted a 4.10 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, and 139/67 K/BB ratio in 184 1/3 innings last season for Colorado. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 11:14 am
  • Wainwright outstanding in victory over Reds
    Adam Wainwright was outstanding in Sunday's victory over the Reds, allowing just one run on seven hits over eight strong frames.

    Advice: Wainwright punched out four on the evening while walking two. The only damage against him came on a two-out bloop RBI single off the bat of Brandon Phillips in the third inning. He went toe-to-toe with Mike Leake who was terrific on the other side as well and was eventually able to scratch out the win. He'll carry an impressive 1.71 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 14/3 K/BB ratio into Saturday's matchup against the Brewers in Milwaukee. Rotoworld.com

  • Nolasco (elbow) cleared for rehab assignment
    Twins general manager Terry Ryan said in a radio interview Sunday that Ricky Nolasco (elbow) has been cleared to begin a rehab assignment.

    Advice: He was given the go-ahead after getting through a bullpen session Sunday with no issues. His pitch count on Saturday at Low-A Cedar Rapids is expected to be around 75, so Nolasco seems likely to need a couple rehab starts. Trevor May is likely to be booted from the rotation when Nolasco is ready. Rotoworld.com

  • Carlos Carrasco to start on Tuesday instead
    Carlos Carrasco (jaw) has had his next start pushed back from Monday to Tuesday.

    Advice: He hasn't had a setback with his bruised jaw, but rather the Indians have just decided to keep Trevor Bauer on regular rest and flip-flop the order of the two. Carrasco, of course, had to leave his last outing after being hit in the side of the face with a comebacker, but he escaped serious injury. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 19, 8:05 am
  • Kennedy (hamstring) to appear in ext. spring
    Ian Kennedy (hamstring) will throw 75-90 pitches in an extended spring training game on Monday.

    Advice: He was cleared for game action after getting through a bullpen session Friday with no issues. That the Padres have decided to give him an extended spring training start rather than send him on an official rehab assignment should be irrelevant. Kennedy will be eligible for activation five days after Monday's appearance and should be penciled in to rejoin the rotation on April 25 versus the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com
