  • Martin Perez solid over six versus Red Sox
    Martin Perez held the Red Sox to one run over six innings Sunday in the Rangers' 6-2 win.

    Advice: Texas had a three-run lead after the first inning and Perez went into cruise control from there, scattering six hits and two walks across six solid frames. The one run he gave up came on a Bryce Brentz solo shot in the top of the sixth. Perez will carry a 7-4 record and 3.44 ERA into his next start on the road against the Twins. 35 minutes ago
  • Colon (thumb) takes loss despite nice start
    Bartolo Colon (thumb) pitched well in Sunday's loss to the Braves, allowing one run on six hits over seven innings.

    Advice: Colon was hit with a comebacker off the right thumb in his last start, but he showed no ill-effect from that injury on Sunday. The only run to score against the 43-year-old right-hander came home via a first-inning solo homer off the bat of Freddie Freeman. Assuming the thumb is good-to-go moving forward, Colon will carry a 2.86 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 58/14 K/BB ratio (88 innings) into a home start against the Cubs next time out. Today, 2:40 pm
  • Roark goes seven scoreless to beat Brewers
    Tanner Roark fired seven shutout innings Sunday in the Nationals' 3-2 defeat of the Brewers.

    Advice: Roark scattered seven hits -- two doubles, five singles -- and one walk across his seven scoreless frames. He struck out seven. The 29-year-old right-hander has been a nice surprise for the Nationals this season, now with a 2.96 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 89/32 K/BB ratio in 100 1/3 innings. He finished with a 4.38 ERA in 2015. Next is a home start versus the Reds. Today, 2:36 pm

  • Jimmy Nelson throws five shutout innings
    Jimmy Nelson threw five innings of shutout ball Sunday in the Brewers' loss to the Nationals.

    Advice: He was lifted at 91 pitches and the Milwaukee bullpen let Washington take the lead (and an eventual 3-2 win). Nelson yielded just one hit -- initially called an error, but later ruled a single for Ben Revere. The 27-year-old right-hander has an impressive 3.60 ERA with 70 strikeouts in 95 innings this season. He struck out five on Sunday without issuing a walk. A road date with the Cardinals is next. Today, 2:29 pm

  • Hammel relatively on-point against Marlins
    Jason Hammel pitched decently in Sunday's loss to the Marlins, allowing two runs on four hits over six innings.

    Advice: Hammel surrendered an RBI double to Derek Dietrich in the second inning and an RBI ground out to Adeiny Hechavarria in the sixth, but otherwise kept the scoreboard clean. He struck out three and walked two on the afternoon. After a 7-1 start to the season, he has failed to pick up a win in any of his last four outings and has picked up outright losses in three of them. Despite the recent troubles in the win column, Hammel is maintaining a crisp 2.58 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 70/27 K/BB ratio across 87 1/3 innings. A road NLCS rematch against the Mets shows next on his schedule. Today, 1:43 pm
  • Wei-Chung Wang ends eight-game winless streak
    Brewers LHP prospect Wei-Chung Wang hurled 6 2/3 shutout frames Saturday in a win for Double-A Biloxi.

    Advice: He finished with a season-high nine strikeouts while allowing just two hits and a pair of walks. 62 of his season-high 101 pitches went for strikes. Saturday's victory was Wang's first since April 21, ending an eight-game winless drought. Wang raced through the Brewers' system, making his major league debut in 2014 at age 21. He flamed out quickly, culminating in a demotion to High-A Brevard County last season. The left-hander holds a 4.07 ERA over 12 starts for Biloxi in 2016. Today, 1:18 pm

  • DeSclafani blanks Padres over eight innings
    Anthony DeSclafani was marvelous in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Padres, tossing eight innings of five-hit shutout ball.

    Advice: DeScalafani struck out five without walking a batter. He figures to sleep well tonight after throwing 117 pitches (77 strikes). Through his first four starts -- an oblique injury kept him off the mound for the first two months of the season -- the 26-year-old right-hander holds a sharp 1.52 ERA and slightly more dull 1.31 WHIP. He will look to continue rounding into form when he takes to the road for a date with the Nationals in his next scheduled start. Today, 12:56 pm
  • Angels claim J.C. Ramirez off waivers
    Angels claimed RHP J.C. Ramirez off waivers from the Reds.

    Advice: Ramirez, 27, holds a 6.40 ERA this season and a 6.41 ERA over 65 career appearances in the majors. He's merely a depth guy for the Angels. Today, 10:57 am

  • Bo Schultz recalled from Triple-A
    Blue Jays recalled RHP Bo Schultz from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Schultz has put up a 4.24 ERA and 14/3 K/BB ratio over 17 relief innings for Buffalo this season. He'll be used in low-leverage situations. Today, 9:03 am
  • Chapman, Miller likely unavailable Sunday
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Sunday that he doesn't anticipate using Aroldis Chapman or Andrew Miller for a third straight day Sunday.

    Advice: Girardi on at least one other occasion this season said that he'd rest Chapman and then wound up using him, so we can't rule anything out. However, it appears a potential save situation Sunday could be handled by Dellin Betances, who would be going on three straight days himself. Today, 8:21 am
  • Mitchell (toe) unlikely for this season
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Sunday that he's not expecting Bryan Mitchell (toe) to pitch in the majors this season.

    Advice: The anticipation had been that Mitchell could return from toe surgery late in the year, but evidently Girardi isn't counting on it. Mitchell has resumed playing catch and is nearing mound work. Today, 8:08 am

  • Chase Whitley (elbow) throws live BP
    Chase Whitley (elbow) threw live batting practice on Saturday.

    Advice: It was the first time he's faced hitters since last year's Tommy John surgery. Whitley could be an option for the Rays at some point in the second half, but they're surely not counting on much from him until next season. Today, 7:39 am

  • Leake takes a loss in Seattle on Saturday
    Mike Leake lasted only 3 1/3 innings while giving up five runs (four earned) on nine hits in an interleague loss to the Mariners on Saturday.

    Advice: Leake registered only one strikeout to go with two walks. All nine hits he allowed were singles but the Mariners bunched them together to good effect. He falls to 5-5 with a 4.25 ERA. Throughout his career Leake has been a consistent, reliable, league-average pitcher in terms of ERA (career 3.89 ERA) with a low strikeout rate (6.05 K/9 career). That has good value in deep fantasy leagues but leaves his owners looking for a better option in standard mixed leagues. Yesterday, 11:17 pm
  • Bumgarner turns in quality start but loses
    Madison Bumgarner turned in a quality start but lost to the Phillies on Saturday, giving up three runs in 6 1/3 innings.

    Advice: He allowed only five hits but a two-run homer by Cameron Rupp proved his undoing. Bumgarner fanned seven and walked only one. He has a magnificent 1.99 ERA and 122/29 K/BB ratio in 108 1/3 innings. He is in the running for a Cy Young award and is a lock to make the All Star team. He will take his 8-4 record into a rivalry matchup with Oakland on Thursday. Yesterday, 10:47 pm
  • Gomez snares 20th save with perfect inning
    Jeanmar Gomez slammed the door on the Giants with a perfect ninth inning to notch his 20th save of the season on Saturday.

    Advice: Gomez does not post elite stats but he has gotten the job done all season. Only five closers have more saves than Gomez this year. He has a 3.09 ERA with 24 strikeouts and nine walks in 35 innings. Yesterday, 10:42 pm
  • Bartolo Colon (thumb) all set for Sunday's Anthony DiComo confirmed Bartolo Colon (thumb) will start Sunday's game against the Braves.

    Advice: Colon left his last start early after taking a comebacker off his right thumb, but his status for Sunday was never in much doubt. The 43-year-old left the team briefly to attend his son's graduation in New Jersey but joined the team in Atlanta on Saturday. With Zack Wheeler's rehab from Tommy John surgery stalled, Colon's spot in the Mets' rotation should be safe for another month or two. Yesterday, 1:47 pm
  • Chapman converts 15th save of season
    Aroldis Chapman pitched a scoreless ninth inning Saturday to finish off a 2-1 victory over the Twins for his 15th save of the season.

    Advice: Chapman gave up a two-out single to Joe Mauer before striking out Brian Dozier swinging to end it. The fireballing-lefty has struck out at least one batter in 20 of his 21 appearances this season and owns a 2.70 ERA and 31/3 K/BB ratio in 20 innings. He’s now 15-for-16 in save chances. Yesterday, 1:11 pm
  • Chapman notches 14th save in dominant frame
    Aroldis Chapman delivered a dominant ninth inning Friday against the Twins for his 14th save of the season.

    Advice: Chapman struck out the side and needed just 11 pitches (all of them strikes) to get through it. His first 10 pitches were all fastballs and ranged from 101-103 mph. He then broke off a 90 mph change up to strike out Kurt Suzuki looking to end the ballgame. Just nasty. Chapman owns a 2.84 ERA and 30/3 K/BB ratio over 19 innings this season. Friday, 7:16 pm
  • Colon (thumb) to throw bullpen session Thursday
    Bartolo Colon (thumb) will throw a bullpen session on Thursday.

    Advice: Colon had his last start cut short after taking a comebacker off his right thumb. However, he escaped with just a bruise and should be fine for his next start Sunday against Atlanta. The 43-year-old holds a steady 3.00 ERA across 81 innings this season. Thursday, 1:20 pm
  • Colon (thumb) expected to make next start
    Bartolo Colon (thumb) is expected to make his next start Sunday against the Braves.

    Advice: Colon left his start Tuesday against the Royals after taking a comebacker off his right thumb, but X-rays turned up negative and the swelling had mostly subsided by Wednesday morning. Colon, 43, has a 3.00 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 81 innings this season for New York. Wednesday, 7:38 am
  • Nelson surrenders one run over five innings
    Jimmy Nelson pitched well over five innings in Tuesday's no-decision against the A's, allowing one run on six hits.

    Advice: Nelson struck out two and walked one on the evening, but even with those low counts, he had still thrown 105 pitches through five innings. The only run to score on his watch came via an RBI groundout by Stephen Vogt in the fifth. The 27-year-old right-hander will carry a 3.80 ERA and 1.36 WHIP into a home start against the Nationals next time he toes the rubber. Tuesday, 10:42 pm

  • Roark collapses in eighth inning vs Dodgers
    Tanner Roark was magnificent until he wasn't in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers, allowing a three-run home run to Yasmani Grandal in the eighth inning.

    Advice: Roark was tossing a four-hit shutout heading into the eighth inning, but he would lose that in rapid fashion. A leadoff walk to Joc Pederson got the ball rolling in the wrong direction. He followed that up by allowing an infield single to Yasiel Puig. A three-run home run by Yasmani Grandal then boosted the Dodgers to a 3-2 lead. The late homer is tough, but Roark pitched well overall, as has been the case for most of the season. The 29-year-old right-hander's overall 3.18 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 82/31 K/BB ratio (93 1/3 innings) are more than respectable. Roark will look to rebound from Tuesday's late heartbreak in a home start against the Mets next time he toes the rubber. Tuesday, 9:57 pm

  • Hammel gives up four runs, two homers vs. STL
    Jason Hammel allowed four runs over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Cardinals on Tuesday.

    Advice: Hammel gave up six hits on the night, with two leaving the yard -- a Matt Carpenter solo homer and Matt Holliday two-run shot, both in the third inning. After going 7-1 in his first 11 starts, Hammel is now winless in his last three. He isn't getting pounded, though, and Hammel still owns a 2.55 ERA and 1.08 WHIP on the year. He'll try to get back in the win column Sunday at the Marlins. Tuesday, 8:57 pm
  • DeSclafani goes seven strong against Rangers
    Anthony DeSclafani allowed two runs on five hits over seven innings in a win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

    Advice: His third start since coming off the disabled list was his best yet, as the right-hander gave up five hits and a walk while striking out six. He now owns a 2.30 ERA through those three starts, but his 1.66 WHIP speaks to the fact that he's still rounding into form. DeSclafani made a name for himself in 2015 and will look to continue knocking the rust off Sunday against the Padres. Tuesday, 8:05 pm
  • X-rays clean on Bartolo Colon's right thumb
    X-rays turned up negative on Bartolo Colon's right thumb.

    Advice: Colon was struck in the thumb by a Whit Merrifield liner in the first inning of his start Tuesday night against the Royals, but he escaped that scary scene with a contusion. The big right-hander will be reevaluated later this week. He shouldn't need a 15-day disabled list stint. Tuesday, 4:37 pm
  • Colon struck with comebacker in first inning
    Bartolo Colon was lifted in the first inning of his start Tuesday against the Royals after taking a Whit Merrifield line drive off his right wrist.

    Advice: Merrifield was the very first batter of the game and launched a screamer back at Colon, who looked to be grabbing at both his wrist and thumb as he made his way off the field. Hansel Robles took over with one out in the top of the first. Colon is likely undergoing X-rays. Tuesday, 4:17 pm
  • Colon to start against Royals on Tuesday
    Bartolo Colon will start against the Royals on Tuesday.

    Advice: Colon was previously scheduled to start Wednesday, but the Mets decided to flip him with Noah Syndergaard. The veteran right-hander allowed two runs over 7 2/3 innings in his last start last Thursday against the Pirates and owns a 3.01 ERA on the year. Tuesday, 11:14 am
  • Bumgarner goes the distance in loss to Bucs
    Madison Bumgarner allowed a lone run in a complete-game loss to the Pirates on Monday.

    Advice: A solo home run by Erik Kratz in the fifth inning was all the scoring either side could manage on the evening. It was one of five hits Bumgarner allowed while striking out eight and walking two. The southpaw is now 8-3 with a 1.85 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 115/28 K/BB ratio over 102 innings of work. Another tasty matchup with the Phillies is on tap for Saturday. Monday, 6:54 pm
  • Perez surrenders four earned in no-decision
    Martin Perez gave up four earned runs over 5 1/3 innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Texas' offense rallied again versus the St. Louis bullpen to sweep the big three-game weekend series at Busch Stadium. Perez gave up eight hits -- including homers to Stephen Piscotty and Matt Holliday -- while walking three and striking out none. He'll try for better results next time out against the Red Sox. Jun 19, 2:34 pm
  • Leake surrenders three runs in no-decision
    Mike Leake surrendered three runs -- two earned -- over six innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Rangers.

    Advice: St. Louis' bullpen blew another lead as the Cardinals dropped the entire three-game set against the visiting Rangers. Leake went without a walk for his third straight outing, but he did allow eight hits -- two of which were homers. The right-hander will carry a 4.00 ERA and 1.16 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Mariners. Jun 19, 2:32 pm
  • Padres manage four runs against Tanner Roark
    Tanner Roark allowed four runs on seven hits over six innings in Thursday's win over the Padres.

    Advice: Roark stuck out five and walked two in what turned out to be a relatively average outing. Matt Kemp and Melvin Upton burned him for RBI singles in the first inning and Wil Myers cracked a solo home run in the fifth to account for three of the four runs on his line. The other came home on a Christian Bethancourt RBI groundout in the sixth. For the season as a whole, Roark has done a fine job, pitching to a 3.14 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 77/30 K/BB ratio over 86 innings. Up next on his schedule, a road start against the Dodgers. Jun 16, 10:31 pm
    W, 3-2 ^ @Mil
  • Chapman fires scoreless inning for 12th save
    Aroldis Chapman threw a perfect ninth inning against the Twins on Thursday to earn his 12th save.

    Advice: Chapman needed 10 pitches to cut through the Twins' hitters, striking out one without allowing a baserunner. He's now got 12 saves in 13 chances with a 2.25 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 23/3 K/BB ratio over 16 innings since his return from suspension in early May. The southpaw's success and the Yankees' lack thereof could make him a trade candidate as the July deadline appears on the horizon. Jun 16, 9:35 pm
  • Colon tosses 7 2/3 strong innings versus Bucs
    Bartolo Colon held the Pirates to two runs over 7 2/3 innings, striking out eight, in a win Tuesday.

    Advice: The rest of the Mets' rotation gets the praise, but Colon now owns a 3.01 ERA over 80 2/3 innings this season. On Thursday, he gave up seven hits without walking a batter. He's now 6-3 on the year and will square off with the Royals in an interleague tilt on Wednesday. Jun 16, 7:07 pm
  • DeSclafani struggles in short outing
    Anthony DeSclafani was lifted with two outs in the third inning on Wednesday versus the Braves, having allowed four runs (only one earned) on six hits and three walks with two strikeouts.

    Advice: There has been no word of an injury to account for the early trip to the showers. DeSclafani was making just his second start of the season after missing the first two months to an oblique injury. Due to the six hits, three walks and an error his pitch count was mounting quickly and he was relieved after making 76 offerings. He now has a 2.08 ERA in eight innings pitched for the season, even though he has walked more batters (six) than he has whiffed (four). Jun 15, 10:16 pm
