  • Adam Warren struggles, still defeats Red Sox
    Adam Warren picked up his second victory of the season on Sunday despite allowing four runs on four hits over his 5 2/3 innings of work.

    Advice: Warren fanned two and walked two on the evening. After being staked to an early lead, Warren cruised through four innings unscathed before running into a buzzsaw in the sixth. Two of the four runs charged to him scored on a Mike Napoli home run after he left the game. Warren will bring a 4.78 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 14/10 K/BB ratio into his next start against the Orioles on Friday.

  • Joe Kelly hit hard in loss to Yankees Sunday
    Joe Kelly was hit hard in a losing effort against the Yankees on Sunday, surrendering five runs on nine hits over 4 2/3 frames.

    Advice: Kelly struck out three and didn't issue a walk in the ballgame. The Yankees got to him early, with Mark Teixeira blasting a two-run homer in the first inning. They would tack on another three runs in the third to jump out to a commanding lead. Kelly has struggled during his time in the Red Sox rotation, compiling a 5.72 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 31/8 K/BB ratio over 28 1/3 innings. He'll look to right the ship when he does battle against the Blue Jays in Toronto on Saturday.

  • Weaver shellacked for five runs in loss
    Jered Weaver allowed five runs in five innings during Sunday's loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Weaver served up back-to-back home runs to Joe Panik and Nori Aoki to start the game. It didn't get much better after that. The Giants racked up 10 hits against the right-hander in his five innings and cruised behind a throwback performance from Tim Lincecum. Weaver struck out just two batters and is averaging what would be a career-low of 4.0 K/9. With diminished stuff, Weaver's numbers are looking pretty bad this season. He's the unfortunate owner of a 6.49 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 15/5 K/BB over 34 1/3 innings. Of those 15 strikeouts, five came in an early April start. Weaver has a home date with the molten-hot Astros in his next start.

  • Lincecum pitches vintage shutout gem
    Tim Lincecum pitched eight innings of shutout baseball against the Angels on Sunday, allowing just three hits and striking out four in the 5-0 win.

    Advice: Lincecum jumped into the time machine and came out pitching his best game of the season. The Angels only managed three singles in the entire contest. With the shutout, Lincecum lowered his ERA to 2.40. He holds a 1.23 WHIP and has a 20/11 K/BB ratio over 30 innings. The last time he posted an ERA lower than 4.37 was in 2011, so we're at least a little dubious of his early numbers. He'll try to keep the time machine warm for his next outing, a home start against the Marlins.

  • Brett Anderson logs six shutout frames Sunday
    Brett Anderson hurled six shutout frames in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

    Advice: The veteran southpaw punched out four on the afternoon while allowing only five hits and walking none. He went toe-to-toe with Chase Anderson who flipped up zeroes on the other side of the scoreboard though, and neither hurler came away with a decision. Locked into an injury-ravaged Dodgers rotation, Anderson sports a 4.21 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 15/4 K/BB ratio over 25 2/3 innings. He'll draw a tough assignment next time out, taking on the Rockies at Coors Field on Friday.
    Yesterday, 5:14 pm
  • Gallardo surrenders four runs in loss to A's
    Yovani Gallardo picked up his third loss in a row on Sunday, allowing four runs (three earned) over 6 2/3 innings against the A's.

    Advice: Gallardo struck out one and walked four while scattering seven hits over his 6 2/3 innings. Stephen Vogt's two homers accounted for all three earned runs off the pitcher, though Vogt's second bomb came off the bullpen (allowing a few inherited runners to score). Gallardo's effort wasn't awful by any means, but he happened to go up against a red-hot Sonny Gray. After starting out 2-1, Gallardo's seen his record fall to 2-4. He'll take a 4.05, 1.44 WHIP and 25/12 K/BB ratio (in 33 1/3 innings) on the road against the Rays in his next start.
    Yesterday, 4:45 pm
  • Guthrie roughed up by Tigers over six innings
    Jeremy Guthrie struggled against the Tigers on Sunday, surrendering six runs in six innings.

    Advice: The Tigers racked up eleven hits against Guthrie in the contest, with Alex Avila supplying a pair of RBI singles and Miguel Cabrera capping off the scoring with a two-run homer. Guthrie struck out one and did not walk a batter. The rough outing pushed his ERA to 6.52 and his WHIP to 1.59, to go with a 11/10 K/BB. Unfortunately for Guthrie, he'll face these same Tigers again next weekend.
    Yesterday, 3:29 pm
  • Danks serves up seven runs in limited time
    John Danks was crushed by the Twins on Sunday, allowing seven runs (three earned) in just 2 1/3 innings.

    Advice: The Twins opened the game up with a seven-run third inning, keyed by Trevor Plouffe's grand slam. The "unearned runs" on the line came via a Danks error to load the bases just prior to the Plouffe slam, plus another Danks error later in the inning. The Twins need to have a talk with their home scorekeeper here. Earned, unearned, we're quibbling with semantics. The outing was awful. Danks now holds a 6.20 ERA and a 1.54 WHIP, with a 19/6 K/BB ratio in 24 2/3 innings. He's not a reliable starter for fantasy play at this point, but he'll at least try to rebound from this meltdown when he faces the Reds in his next outing.
    Yesterday, 2:46 pm
  • Hernandez allows five runs in win over M's
    Roberto Hernandez surrendered five runs (four earned) over six innings in Sunday's contest with the Mariners.

    Advice: The Mariners scored their five runs on eight hits. Hernandez struck out two and walked one in what was a relatively uneventful start until the start of the seventh inning, when the M's put up a four-spot. Despite squandering a 6-1 lead, the Astros still managed to win 7-6 as they pushed their current winning streak to 10 games. For his part, Hernandez's numbers this season have been serviceable. He owns a 4.25 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 18/9 K/BB ratio over 29 2/3 innings. He'll face the Angels in his next start.
    Yesterday, 2:11 pm
  • Dillon Gee wild in loss to Nationals
    Dillon Gee managed to only give up one run but wasn't sharp Sunday, yielding six hits and five walks over five frames in a loss.

    Advice: Gee did record five punchouts, but he needed 94 pitches to get through five innings and was flirting with trouble all day. Although he wasn't great in this one, the right-hander has overall rebounded from a slow first two starts, allowing just four runs across his last three outings. He'll face the Phillies next weekend.
    Yesterday, 1:34 pm
  • Teheran blanks Reds over six frames to win
    Julio Teheran got the win on Sunday after shutting out the Reds over six innings of work.

    Advice: And with that, Teheran notched his first terrific outing since his Opening Day start back on April 6. It's been a tough start to the season for Teheran, who limited the Reds to three hits and a pair of walks while striking out six. The right-hander lowered his ERA to 3.82, and carries a 1.42 WHIP with a 28/14 K/BB ratio in 33 innings. Teheran will look to keep it going in his next start on the road against the Nationals.
    Yesterday, 1:16 pm
  • Jeremy Guthrie starting for Royals on Sunday
    Jeremy Guthrie will start for the Royals on Sunday versus the Tigers.

    Advice: Jason Vargas had been listed, but the club evidently decided to make a switch. Vargas will now get the ball on Tuesday against the Indians instead.
    Yesterday, 7:55 am
  • Hellickson yields three runs, D'Backs lose
    Jeremy Hellickson yielded three runs over 5 1/3 innings Saturday in the Diamondbacks' loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Hellickson struck out six Los Angeles batters and walked just one, but the Dodgers tagged him for six hits -- including a Justin Turner home run and doubles from Adrian Gonzalez and Yasmani Grandal. Hellickson escaped with a no-decision, but he's 1-3 with a rough 5.20 ERA and 1.66 WHIP in 27 2/3 innings this season. The 28-year-old right-hander doesn't have much fantasy promise at this point.
    Saturday, 10:04 pm
  • Pomeranz allows three runs into sixth inning
    Drew Pomeranz pitched adequately against the Rangers on Saturday, allowing three runs on eight hits in 5 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Pomeranz struck out four, walked one and scattered eight hits into the sixth inning, surrendering solitary runs in the first, third and sixth innings. Despite what was a decent start, he wouldn't factor into the decision, as the Rangers won 8-7 in 10 innings. Pomeranz seems to put up the same start every time he touches the mound. His 4.62 ERA and 1.32 WHIP haven't seen any huge swings on a game-to-game basis, as he hasn't allowed more than four earned runs in a start and has also not allowed fewer than three in his last four tries. He'll take these exceedingly average numbers to Target Field in a match-up with the Twins next time out.
    Saturday, 9:59 pm
  • Morrow moves to 2-0 as Padres beat Rockies
    Brandon Morrow held the Rockies to two earned runs over six innings Saturday in a Padres victory.

    Advice: Morrow gave up seven hits, but he only issued a single walk and fanned four. The right-hander is now 2-0 with an excellent 2.73 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 23/7 K/BB ratio in 33 innings this season for the Padres. He's been a great offseason pickup for San Diego and will try to keep it all rolling next week at Arizona's Chase Field.
    Saturday, 9:57 pm
  • De La Rosa allows three earned in loss
    Jorge De La Rosa allowed three earned runs over five innings Saturday in a loss to the Padres.

    Advice: De La Rosa struck out nine San Diego batters, but he walked three and gave up five hits -- two of which were doubles. The left-hander has now had two bad starts and one good start since debuting on April 20. He'll carry an 0-2 record, 9.00 ERA, and 2.00 WHIP into his next scheduled outing at home against the Dodgers.
    Saturday, 9:54 pm
  • Hernandez gets the win with a quality start
    Roberto Hernandez pitched well enough for the win, giving up three runs in six innings, as the Astros demolished the Padres by a 14-3 margin on Tuesday.

    Advice: Hernandez never pitched from a deficit, as the Astros tacked on runs the longer the game went on. The right-hander gave up six hits and a walk while striking out six. He did allow two home runs, to Wil Myers and to Justin Upton, in the outing. Hernandez now owns a 3.80 ERA with a 1.14 WHIP, and a 16/7 K/BB ratio in 23 2/3 innings. He'll face the Mariners at home in his next start.
    Tuesday, 10:50 pm
  • Weaver serves up 6 runs in 7 IP, falls to 0-3
    Jered Weaver fell to 0-3 after yielding six runs over seven innings in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Athletics.

    Advice: Weaver took the mound in the first inning with a 2-0 lead, but immediately gave back the runs and then some. The A's scored five runs on a two-run Josh Reddick single and a three-run Brett Lawrie home run. Josh Reddick tacked on in the sixth with a solo homer. Overall, Weaver gave up six hits, walked none, and struck out only one. It marked the first time he pitched into the seventh inning. As that might indicate, Weaver hasn't gotten off to the best start, as he carries a 5.83 ERA with a 1.33 WHIP and a 13/4 K/BB ratio in 29 1/3 innings. Weaver matches up with the Giants in San Francisco next.
    Tuesday, 9:26 pm
  • Teheran's struggles continue against the Nats
    Julio Teheran's struggles continued in a no-decision on Tuesday, giving up seven runs (three earned) to the Nationals over 5 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Teheran limited the Nationals to two runs over the first four innings and enjoyed a 10-2 lead, but was hurt by a four-run fifth inning. Denard Span led off with a double, and Alberto Callaspo committed a fielding error to put runners on first and third. The Nats plated a run on a Jayson Werth sacrifice fly and Jose Lobaton later slugged a three-run home run. Overall, Teheran gave up 10 hits, walked none, and struck out four. He'll try to improve on his 4.67 ERA, 1.56 WHIP, and 22/12 K/BB ratio over 27 innings in his next start at home against the Reds.
    Tuesday, 8:13 pm
  • Guthrie lasts five innings vs. CLE in a ND
    Jeremy Guthrie got a no-decision, yielding four runs over five-plus innings, as the Royals downed the Indians 11-5 on Tuesday.

    Advice: The Indians struck for two runs in the bottom of the second on a Michael Bourn single, then added three in the sixth when Brandon Moss clubbed a three-run home run off of Brandon Finnegan. Two of the three runs were charged to Guthrie, who put two runners on base before departing with no outs in the sixth. Overall, he gave up six hits and three walks with three strikeouts. The right-hander has an ugly 5.87 ERA, 1.52 WHIP, and a 10/10 K/BB ratio in 23 innings. Guthrie will have the tough task of taking on the Tigers at home the next time he toes the rubber.
    Tuesday, 6:58 pm
  • Anderson leaves during rough 5th inning vs SF
    Brett Anderson's shaky fifth inning ended his evening, resulting in a no-decision as the Dodgers beat the Giants on Monday.

    Advice: Anderson had shut the Giants out over his first four frames, but the Giants hit him around for three runs in the fifth. After Anderson got two quick ground outs, the Giants strung together a walk, two singles, and a double to reduce a four-run deficit to a one-run deficit. Over 4 2/3 innings, Anderson gave up five hits, walked two, and struck out three. The lefty has pitched into the sixth inning just once in four starts and has a 5.49 ERA. Anderson toes the slab against the Diamondbacks at home in his next outing.
    Monday, 10:21 pm
  • Lincecum takes second loss in 4 IP vs. LAD
    Tim Lincecum got the loss on Monday versus the Dodgers, serving up four runs in four innings of work.

    Advice: The Dodgers scored all four runs in the third inning, but Lincecum just wasn't sharp in general. He gave up eight hits and three walks while striking out only two. The right-hander still sports a productive 3.27 ERA with a 1.22 WHIP and a 16/10 K/BB ratio in 22 innings. Lincecum will look for better results in his next start at home against the Angels.
    Monday, 10:18 pm
  • Gallardo takes third loss in 6 IP vs Mariners
    Yovani Gallardo fell to 2-3 after allowing three runs in six innings versus the Mariners on Monday.

    Advice: The Mariners scored two runs in the first inning, one of which was aided with a throwing error by shortstop Elvis Andrus. Overall, it was a better outing than the box score indicated. Gallardo allowed three hits, walked three, and struck out five. He'll take a 4.05 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, and a 24/8 K/BB ratio in 26 2/3 innings into a start at home against the Athletics.
    Monday, 8:56 pm
  • Warren tosses 5 2/3 effective innings vs Rays
    Adam Warren held the Rays to just one run in 5 2/3 innings of work in a no-decision as the Yankees won on Monday.

    Advice: Warren blanked the Rays through five frames before relenting in the sixth. He threw 81 pitches, 56 of which were strikes. In total, he yielded five hits, walked none, and struck out six. He'll head into a Sunday start in Boston with a 4.35 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, and a 12/8 K/BB ratio in 20 2/3 innings.
    Monday, 7:16 pm
  • Kelly K's 10 but struggles vs. the Blue Jays
    Joe Kelly struggled in Monday's no-decision against the Blue Jays despite striking out 10 batters, as he allowed five runs in six innings of work.

    Advice: The Jays jumped on Kelly immediately, scoring three times in the first inning before adding one run in the third and fourth innings. Overall, Kelly yielded five hits and walked three along with the 10 strikeouts. The right-hander, now with two decent starts and two mediocre starts under his belt, has a 4.94 ERA, a 1.10 WHIP, and a 28/8 K/BB ratio in 22 2/3 innings. Kelly matches up with the Yankees at home in his next outing.
    Monday, 6:39 pm
  • Gee hurls 70-pitch masterpiece as Mets win
    Dillon Gee allowed just one run, needing only 70 pitches to get through 7 2/3 innings in a no-decision versus the Marlins on Monday.

    Advice: Gee had shut the Marlins out through seven, but got into two-out trouble in the eighth. Justin Bour, Gee Gordon, and Martin Prado hit consecutive singles to plate the game's first run to chase Gee from the game. The Mets came back in the next frame to take Gee out of the running for the loss. Overall, the right-hander gave up six hits, walked none, and struck out three. Gee has been solid over his last two starts, lowering his ERA to 4.26. He'll look to keep it going over the weekend at home against the Nationals next.
    Monday, 6:10 pm
  • Pomeranz knocked around for five runs vs HOU
    Drew Pomeranz struggled against the Astros on Sunday, surrendering five runs (three earned) on six hits over five innings.

    Advice: Pomeranz struck out four and walked three in the outing. The Astros tagged him for three runs in the third and two in the fourth. The runs in the third came on a pair of RBI singles, while Jake Marisknick's two-run homer supplied the damage in the fourth. Pomeranz's current 4.50 ERA is more or less indicative of what you can expect from the pitcher. He will pitch effectively at times, but shouldn't be seen as much more than a league-average starter. The 26-year-old southpaw will take to the road against the Rangers in his next outing.
    Apr 26, 4:46 pm
  • Hellickson gives up four runs in loss to Bucs
    Jeremy Hellickson struggled in a losing effort against the Pirates on Sunday, surrendering four runs on seven hits in his 4 1/3 innings of work.

    Advice: Hellickson did manage to rack up six strikeouts on the afternoon while issuing a pair of free passes. The Pirates struck for two in the first on a two-run single by Pedro Alvarez and added a pair on the fifth on a Neil Walker double. Hellickson has had a rough time in the D'Backs rotation thus far, registering a 5.24 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 16/8 K/BB ratio over his 22 1/3 innings. He'll look to turn things around on Saturday when he takes on the Dodgers in Los Angeles.
    Apr 26, 4:33 pm
  • 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 on Sunday, 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. And he has the talent to keep it rolling as long as he stays healthy. Morrow will look to continue his sparkling run next Saturday at home against the Rockies.
    Apr 26, 3:53 pm
  • Danks fans eight Royals in quality start
    John Danks struck out eight and allowed three runs over six innings in Sunday's win over the Royals.

    Advice: Danks had just eight strikeouts coming into the game, but he left with the number doubled. The veteran southpaw also walked just one and allowed five hits in what was his best start of the season. Danks surrendered an RBI double to Mike Moustakas in the third and a two-run home run to Alex Gordon in the fourth, but otherwise kept the Royals quiet. He improved to 1-2 with the win. With that start in the books, he now holds a 5.64 ERA and 1.64 WHIP with a 16/6 K/BB over 22 1/3 innings. He'll try to piece together another decent performance when he faces the Twins in his next start.
    Apr 26, 3:05 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.
    Apr 26, 10:52 am
  • 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.
