  • Richard shellacked for five runs by Tigers
    Clayton Richard surrendered five runs on nine hits over 5 2/3 innings while taking a no-decision in Sunday's loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: Richard surrendered a pair of leads in this one, blowing a 3-0 advantage when he allowed three runs in the fourth inning and coughing up a 5-3 lead when he yielded a game-tying two-run homer to Nick Castellanos in the sixth inning. He struck out three and walked two in the lackluster outing. Richard will bring a 4.42 ERA and 1.44 WHIP into a home start against the smoking-hot Dodgers next time he toes the rubber. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:28 pm
  • Randall Delgado blanks Phillies over five IP
    Randall Delgado fired off five scoreless innings while taking a no-decision in Sunday's 11-inning win over the Phillies.

    Advice: Delgado scattered four hits while striking out four and walking one. He finished his afternoon having thrown 75 pitches (43 strikes). The 27-year-old right-hander has gotten the job done this season, pitching to a 3.18 ERA and 1.11 WHIP over 22 appearances (five starts). Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:05 pm
  • Montero limits Giants to one run in victory
    Rafael Montero surrendered one run on five hits over 5 2/3 innings in Sunday's win over the Giants.

    Advice: Montero struck out seven and walked two on the afternoon. Only a Buster Posey sacrifice fly in the third inning prevented him from a shutout outing. This may just have been a one-off start for the 26-year-old right-hander, as he was filling in for the injured Zack Wheeler (biceps). Wheeler is hoping to be able to make his next turn through the rotation. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:53 pm
  • Francis Martes manages just two innings
    Francis Martes proved ineffective while taking a no-decision in Sunday's win over the Mariners, walking four and allowing two runs in two innings.

    Advice: Martes could not find the zone in this one, with only 34 of his 63 pitches going for strikes. Despite his lack of control, the Mariners were largely unable to take advantage. Robinson Cano would come through with a two-run double off Martes in the second inning, but that was it for runs scored on his watch. In three starts since being called up from Triple-A, the 21-year-old right-hander has pitched to a rough 5.51 ERA and 1.59 WHIP. He will try for sharper results in a home start against the Yankees next time he takes to the mound. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:34 pm
  • Mike Montgomery goes six in tough-luck loss
    Mike Montgomery yielded four hits and three unearned runs over six innings Sunday in the Cubs’ loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: All three runs and three of the Marlins’ four hits off Montgomery came in the first inning. That inning was keyed by a costly throwing error by shortstop Addison Russell. Montgomery was terrific once he escaped the first and retired 10 straight hitters to end his outing. The left-hander has done a nice job since moving to the starting rotation, producing a stellar 1.06 ERA over his last three appearances. He’ll get the ball again Friday at Cincinnati. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:31 pm
  • A.J. Ramos slams the door for 12th save
    A.J. Ramos nailed down his 12th save Sunday in the Marlins’ win over the Cubs.

    Advice: He retired all four hitters he faced while throwing 10 of his 14 pitches for strikes. That’s about as efficient as it gets. Ramos’ 3.62 ERA is a bit higher than some were expecting but he’s still done a solid job for the Marlins, converting 12-of-13 save chances with an eye-popping 12.18 K/9. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:26 pm
  • Scott Feldman silences Nats Sunday
    Scott Feldman was sharp in Sunday’s win over the Nationals, limiting Washington to seven hits, two runs and two walks over seven stellar innings.

    Advice: The Reds spotted Feldman an early 6-0 lead, which had to have taken some of the pressure off. Feldman racked up five strikeouts while matching a season-high with 119 pitches. The only runs he allowed came on a two-run blast by Michael Taylor in the fourth inning. The Reds’ Opening Day starter will make his next appearance Friday against the Cubs. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:24 pm
  • Nick Martinez good enough in win over NYY
    Nick Martinez logged his third win of the season Sunday against the Yankees, allowing six hits, four runs and one walk over five innings of work.

    Advice: He notched three strikeouts over his 88 pitches. Martinez was cruising until the fifth inning when he allowed all four of his runs including three on a two-out homer by Gary Sanchez. The Yankees narrowed the gap to 7-6 at one point but the bullpen held on to preserve for the victory. Martinez hasn’t been anything special for Texas, contributing an underwhelming 4.55 ERA over 12 outings (11 starts) this year. He’s in line to start next Saturday against the White Sox. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:02 pm
  • Santiago Casilla picks up 13th save on Sunday
    Santiago Casilla picked up his 13th save of the season on Sunday, despite allowing a solo home run to Melky Cabrera.

    Advice: Casilla allowed a pair of hits in his inning of work but was still able to escape with a two-run advantage. He has now converted 13 of his first 16 save chances on the season while compiling a 4.28 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 26/12 K/BB ratio across 27 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:53 pm
  • Chris Beck leaves after hit by line drive
    Chris Beck was removed from Sunday's game against the Athletics after he was hit in the back of the left leg by a line drive off the bat of Khris Davis.

    Advice: Before departing Beck had allowed a run on three hits in 2/3 of an inning of work. The White Sox are calling his injury a bruised right hamstring and listing the right-hander as day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:25 pm

  • Parker Bridwell cruises in win over Red Sox
    Parker Bridwell impressed Sunday against the Red Sox, allowing just seven hits and two runs over 6 2/3 innings in the Angels’ 3-2 victory.

    Advice: He struck out four and walked two. Bridwell allowed a pair of homers—one to Mitch Moreland in the second and another to Jackie Bradley in the fifth—but otherwise kept the damage to a minimum. The 25-year-old has pitched well while filling in for Matt Shoemaker (forearm), compiling a 3.09 ERA over his last two starts. With Shoemaker’s status still up in the air, Bridwell is likely to grab another start Friday against Seattle. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:07 pm
  • Petit goes two scoreless for the save
    Yusmeiro Petit hurled two shutout frames for his first save Sunday in the Angels’ 4-2 win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: He struck out one while throwing 19 of his 25 pitches for strikes. His only blemish was a one-out single to Andrew Benintendi in the ninth inning. The Angels have gone with a closer by committee in Bud Norris’ absence with Petit, Blake Parker and David Hernandez all handling save chances. We’re guessing Norris will maintain his ninth-inning role when he returns, which could happen later this week. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:02 pm
  • Cardinals place Kevin Siegrist on 10-day DL
    Cardinals placed LHP Kevin Siegrist on the 10-day disabled list due to a cervical spine strain.

    Advice: It's unclear at the moment just how much time the left-hander stands to miss. He has appeared in 31 games for the Cardinals this season, compiling a 4.28 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 25/15 K/BB ratio across 27 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:29 pm

  • Jeanmar Gomez officially released by Phillies
    Phillies released RHP Jeanmar Gomez.

    Advice: The Phils designated their former closer for assignment last week and have now officially given him a pink slip. Gomez holds an ugly 7.25 ERA this season, but he should be able to land on his feet somewhere. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:39 am

  • Tony Barnette (finger) ready for rehab games
    Tony Barnette (finger) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday.

    Advice: Barnett will throw one inning on Tuesday and two on Thursday before being re-evaluated. Unless he has a setback, he should rejoin the Rangers' bullpen next weekend. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:10 am

  • Zach Britton (forearm) aims for July 5 return
    Zach Britton (forearm) is aiming to rejoin the Orioles' bullpen on July 5.

    Advice: Britton has tossed three scoreless innings so far on his rehab assignment with Low-A Delmarva. He'll move up to Double-A Bowie to pitch Monday and Thursday, then go to High-A Frederick and finally to Triple-A Norfolk. Assuming he continues to progress without any setbacks, Britton will be activated on July 5, five games before the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:18 am
    60-Day DL
     
  • Eduardo Paredes optioned to Triple-A
    Angels optioned RHP Eduardo Paredes to Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Paredes allowed a couple runs over 2 2/3 innings in his major league debut Friday. He looks to have a bright future as a reliever but will get some more seasoning in the minors before he returns. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:29 am

  • Rays move Erasmo Ramirez back to bullpen
    Erasmo Ramirez is being moved back to the Rays' bullpen.

    Advice: Blake Snell is rejoining the rotation this week. Ramirez posted a 6.05 ERA over eight starts to earn the demotion. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:13 am
  • Stefan Crichton recalled from Triple-A
    Orioles recalled RHP Stefan Crichton from Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: Crichton has been up and down between the majors and minors many times this season, ultimately posting an 8.49 ERA over seven relief appearances so far with the big club. He'll be used in low-leverage situations. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:34 am
  • Miguel Castro optioned to Double-A
    Orioles optioned RHP Miguel Castro to Double-A Bowie.

    Advice: Castro holds a 4.09 ERA over eight relief appearances in the majors this season. Stefan Crichton is replacing him in the bullpen. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:32 am

  • Chris Young officially released by Royals
    Royals released RHP Chris Young.

    Advice: Young was removed from the 40-man roster Friday after the signing of Neftali Feliz and he's now officially a free agent. The 38-year-old will surely have to settle for a minor league contract if he intends on continuing his career. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:25 am

  • Anibal Sanchez sharp in Saturday no-decision
    Anibal Sanchez allowed two runs - one earned - and two hits with no walks and four strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision in San Diego on Saturday.

    Advice: Sanchez has posted a 2.45 ERA over 11 innings in two outings since being summoned from Triple-A Toledo on June 18. He has re-emerged as a useful fantasy option if you need help in the back end of your rotation in deeper AL play. His next start is scheduled for Friday against the Indians at Comerica Park. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:26 am
  • Sam Gaviglio posts quality start in loss
    Sam Gaviglio allowed two earned runs, six hits and three walks with three strikeouts over six innings in a loss against the Astros on Saturday.

    Advice: Gaviglio has managed a 3-2 record with a 3.38 ERA through nine appearances (eight starts). It's uncertain what his role will be once Hisashi Iwakuma (shoulder) is ready to return, but the right-hander certainly has proven he belongs at the big league level in some capacity. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:48 pm
  • Ramirez stifles Red Sox to earn seventh win
    J.C. Ramirez kept the Red Sox to one run over six innings Saturday, leading the Angels to a 6-3 victory.

    Advice: Ramirez gave up just four hits, one of which was a Mitch Moreland solo home run for the only Sox run against him. He also didn't walk a batter while striking out five. A lot of the shine has worn off the 28-year-old since his surprising start to the season, but he's still 7-5 with a passable 4.38 ERA in 17 appearances. Another tough test is on tap for Thursday, when the Angels travel "across town" to face the Dodgers in an interleague battle. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:23 pm
  • Jordan Jankoski recalled from Fresno
    Astros recalled RHP Jordan Jankowski from Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Joe Musgrove was optioned to Fresno in the corresponding move. Jankowski struggled in his first stint with the Astros this year, producing an ugly 16.20 ERA over 3 1/3 innings. He'll be used in middle relief. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:50 pm

  • Casilla converts 12th save of season
    Santiago Casilla danced around trouble against the White Sox on Friday to convert his 12th save of the season.

    Advice: Casilla allowed back-to-back singles to begin the bottom of the ninth, but the White Sox couldn’t get anything else going. The 36-year-old recently missed a couple of save chances after he was hit in the non-throwing shoulder by a foul ball, but fortunately it wasn’t anything serious. He’s 12-for-15 in save chances this season with a 4.10 ERA and 26/12 K/BB ratio in 26 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:55 pm
  • A.J. Ramos slams door on Cubs in ninth
    A.J. Ramos worked a scoreless ninth inning against the Cubs on Friday, protecting a two-run advantage to earn his 11th save of the season.

    Advice: Ramos surrendered a one-out single to Javier Baez but erased him by getting Albert Almora to ground into a game-ending double play. He has been inconsistent this season, compiling a 3.81 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 36/15 K/BB ratio across 26 innings. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:07 pm
  • Eduardo Paredes recalled from Triple-A
    Angels recalled RHP Eduardo Paredes from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Paredes, 22, earned a promotion by posting a 1.89 ERA and 43/15 K/BB ratio over 38 innings between Double- and Triple-A. He'll be making his major league debut when he gets into a game. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:56 pm

  • Royals designate Chris Young for assignment
    Royals designated RHP Chris Young for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of Neftali Feliz. Young was great for the Royals in 2015 but holds a 6.52 ERA since the beginning of 2016. The 38-year-old will probably get another shot somewhere, but he looks done as far as being a successful major leaguer. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:42 pm

  • Britton throws another scoreless inning
    Zach Britton (forearm) threw a scoreless inning Thursday in a rehab appearance for Low-A Delmarva.

    Advice: He finished with two strikeouts while throwing 11 of his 16 pitches for strikes. Britton's fastball ranged from 91-95 mph. The All-Star closer should return as soon as he's eligible on July 4. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:58 pm
    60-Day DL
     
  • Montero to start Sunday at San Francisco
    Rafael Montero will start Sunday against the Giants.

    Advice: He's taking Zack Wheeler's spot in the rotation. Montero has struggled as a starter this year, going 0-1 with a 10.80 ERA in his two starts. Even against a struggling Giants team, Montero won't be a recommended streaming option. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:34 pm
  • Sam Gaviglio scheduled to start Saturday
    Sam Gaviglio is scheduled to start Saturday's game against the Astros.

    Advice: The Mariners had been hoping that Hisashi Iwakuma (shoulder) would be ready to rejoin the rotation this weekend, but he will need at least one more rehab start, giving Gaviglio an additional opportunity. In eight appearances (seven starts) this season, the 27-year-old right-hander has posted a respectable 3.43 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 25/12 K/BB ratio across 39 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:35 pm
  • Erasmo Ramirez gets win over Reds
    Erasmo Ramirez pitched 5 1/3 innings of two-run ball and struck out six Wednesday against the Reds.

    Advice: Ramirez could have been facing a demotion to the bullpen if he struggled in this one, but he picked up his first win since May 24. He still hasn't thrown more than six innings in any of his eight starts this year, and there probably will come a time in which the Rays will try someone else. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:04 pm
  • Ramos earns 10th save Wednesday vs. Nats
    A.J. Ramos earned his 10th save of the season Wednesday in the Marlins' comeback win over the Nationals.

    Advice: Miami pounced for two runs against Max Scherzer in the bottom of the eighth after being held hitless for the first seven innings of the game, and Ramos made the rally stick with a scoreless top of the ninth. The 30-year-old closer struck out two of the four batters he faced. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:20 pm
  • Francis Martes scores second career win
    Francis Martes allowed three earned runs, six hits and three walks with four strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings in a win Tuesday at Oakland.

    Advice: Martes has two starts in the majors and two wins. However, he has managed a 5.02 ERA since his call-up from Triple-A, where he posted a 5.29 ERA with 28 walks and 39 strikeouts across 32 1/3 innings. He is a power arm with potential, but he has been awfully hittable and receiving plenty of run to mask his mediocre numbers so far. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:19 pm
  • Nick Martinez shuts down Blue Jays on Tuesday
    Nick Martinez picked up his second win of the season on Tuesday, limiting the Blue Jays to just one run on two hits over 6 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Martinez also issued three walks while fanning two on the night. The only damage against him came on a run-scoring single from Ryan Goins in the seventh inning. He'll carry a 4.33 ERA and 1.19 WHIP into a difficult matchup against the Yankees in New York on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:55 pm
  • Mike Montgomery fires six scoreless in win
    Mike Montgomery fired six scoreless innings in Tuesday's victory over the Padres.

    Advice: Montgomery struck out four on the night while allowing just three hits and a pair of walks. He needed just 75 pitches to navigate through six innings before Joe Maddon turned the ball over to his bullpen. The left-hander has excelled in his transition to the rotation and now owns a sparkling 2.26 ERA and 1.24 WHIP on the season. He'll do battle against the Marlins his next time out on Sunday in Miami. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:14 pm
  • Parker Bridwell solid versus Yankees
    Parker Bridwell allowed two runs and two hits over five innings Tuesday in his start against the Yankees.

    Advice: Bridwell managed to work around five walks before leaving with a one-run lead. It's unclear if he'll make another start; it will probably depends on what happens with Matt Shoemaker and his bid to return this weekend. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:11 pm
  • Britton (forearm) makes rehab debut in Low-A
    Zach Britton (forearm) threw a scoreless 12-pitch inning Tuesday in his rehab debut with Low-A Aberdeen.

    Advice: Britton struck out the first batter he faced and then erased a one-out walk by inducing an inning-ending double play. If he can avoid setbacks, the left-hander should be able to return from the 60-day disabled list when first eligible on July 4. He's been out since early May because of a forearm strain. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:13 pm
    60-Day DL
     
  • Orioles transfer Zach Britton to 60-day DL
    Orioles transferred LHP Zach Britton from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The move means Britton won't be eligible to return to the Orioles' bullpen until July 4, though that was probably part of the plan anyway. He is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday night with Low-A Aberdeen and will spend at least two weeks pitching in minor league games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:13 pm
    60-Day DL
     
  • Phillies DFA former closer Jeanmar Gomez
    Phillies designated RHP Jeanmar Gomez for assignment.

    Advice: Gomez opened the season as the Phillies' closer even after his fade last season, but he lasted about a week in the job and ultimately posted a 7.25 ERA over 18 appearances. The 29-year-old is making $4.2 million this season and Philly will have to eat what remains on that contract. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:58 am

  • Britton (forearm) rehab pushed back a day
    Zach Britton's (forearm) first rehab appearance with Low-A Aberdeen was pushed back from Monday to Tuesday due to the threat of bad weather.

    Advice: It's not expected to delay Britton's return, which looks to be on track for late June or early July. "We talked with [Aberdeen]," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "Obviously we’re better equipped to handle that, but it won’t affect his schedule tomorrow, provided he pitches tomorrow. We had a couple rain days built in." Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:57 am

  • Anibal Sanchez struggles in rotation return
    Anibal Sanchez allowed two earned runs, five hits and three walks with five strikeouts over five innings in a no-decision Monday in Seattle.

    Advice: His overall stat line wasn't terrible, but he struggled with his location. He managed to throw just 50 of his 89 pitches for strikes in his first start of the season. Sanchez had been a train wreck in a relief role, allowing 21 runs over 21 innings. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:46 pm
  • Sam Gaviglio posts no-decision on Monday
    Sam Gaviglio allowed two earned runs, three hits and four walks with just one strikeout over five innings in a no-decision against the Tigers on Monday.

    Advice: Gaviglio labored through this start, throwing just 46 of his 84 pitches for strikes. He still has a respectable 3.43 ERA overall, and he hasn't lost in five starts dating back to May 24 in Washington. Gaviglio was called up from Triple-A Tacoma in mid-May with several rotation members injured, but may have done enough to carve out a roll for himself in the Emerald City for the long haul. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:28 pm
  • Clayton Richard pitches well in no-decision
    Clayton Richard pitched well in a no-decision against the Cubs on Monday, allowing two runs on five hits over 6 1/3 innings of work.

    Advice: Richard walked three and struck out three on the night. He had allowed only a sacrifice fly to Anthony Rizzo before surrendering a solo homer to Willson Contreras prior to departing in the seventh. Richard will look to continue improving upon his 4.20 ERA and 1.41 WHIP when he squares off against the Tigers on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:58 pm
  • Rafael Montero in line for spot start Wed.
    Rafael Montero will make a spot start on Wednesday against the Dodgers if he's not needed out of the bullpen before then.

    Advice: If Montero is needed in relief Monday or Tuesday, Tyler Pill will start Wednesday. Neither would be desirable streamers. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:09 pm
  • J.C. Ramirez flattened for five runs by KC
    J.C. Ramirez yielded five runs on five hits over three-plus innings in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Control proved to be Ramirez's bugaboo in this one, as he walked four and threw just 52 of his 89 pitches for strikes. As for the run-scoring damage on his watch, Ramirez allowed a bases-clearing RBI double to Mike Moustakas in the third inning, then put the first two runners on in the fourth before being relieved of duty. Both of those runners would come home to score courtesy of the bullpen. Ramirez will carry an unimpressive 4.59 ERA and 1.33 WHIP into a road start against the Red Sox next time he toes the rubber. Rotoworld.com Jun 18, 4:14 pm
  • Tigers recall Anibal Sanchez from Triple-A
    Tigers recalled RHP Anibal Sanchez from Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: The veteran right-hander will rejoin the Tigers' rotation on Monday against the Mariners. He posted a 4.60 ERA and 20/5 K/BB ratio over 15 2/3 innings over four starts at Triple-A while getting stretched out. He still isn't a recommended fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Jun 18, 2:19 pm
  • Casilla (shoulder) says he's available
    Santiago Casilla (shoulder) said he'll be available to pitch Sunday.

    Advice: Casilla was hit on the left (non-pitching) shoulder by a foul ball while in the dugout Saturday. The shoulder is still a little swollen, but the closer said he'll be fine. Rotoworld.com Jun 18, 10:51 am
  • Anibal Sanchez to start for Tigers on Monday
    Anibal Sanchez will start for the Tigers on Monday in Seattle.

    Advice: The Tigers will utilize a six-man rotation for at least one turn through the rotation. Sanchez was sent down last month to be stretched out as a starter and posted a 4.60 ERA and 20/5 K/BB ratio over 15 2/3 innings across four starts for Triple-A Toledo. Rotoworld.com Jun 18, 7:35 am
  • Casilla injures shoulder on foul ball
    X-rays on Santiago Casilla's shoulder came back negative.

    Advice: Casilla was watching Saturday's game against the Yankees from the dugout when a foul ball struck him on the shoulder. He went to the clubhouse for X-rays, though it looks like he was able to avoid a serious injury. Casilla was unavailable for Saturday's game anyway after pitching on Thursday and Friday. Sean Doolittle earned the save in his place. Rotoworld.com Jun 17, 5:16 pm
  • Angels call up Parker Bridwell from Salt Lake
    Angels recalled RHP Parker Bridwell from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Players are typically required to spend at least 10 days in the minors after being sent down but Bridwell was able to bypass that rule because he's replacing an injured Matt Shoemaker. Bridwell is tentatively expected to start in Shoemaker's place Tuesday against the Yankees. Rotoworld.com Jun 17, 2:43 pm
  • Santiago Casilla whiffs side for the save
    Santiago Casilla allowed a walk with three strikeouts in a scoreless ninth inning Friday against the Yankees.

    Advice: Casilla threw 13 of his 22 pitches for strikes for his 11th save of the season. He bounced back nicely after blowing the save in Thursday's series opener. After losing 48 pitches over the past two days it's possible he might not be available if a save chance pops up on Saturday. Sean Doolittle might slot into the closer's role if Casilla is held out. Rotoworld.com Jun 17, 1:32 am
  • Erasmo Ramirez gives up 10 runs in loss
    Erasmo Ramirez was lit up for 10 runs -- eight earned -- in 4 2/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: Kevin Cash has the slowest hook in the business, which takes a toll on the ERAs of his starters. Most managers wouldn't have let Ramirez come back out after he gave up five runs in the fourth inning tonight, but Cash let him give up four more runs, ruining any chances the Rays might have had of coming back. Ramirez's ERA jumped from 4.20 to 5.17. Rotoworld.com Jun 16, 8:49 pm
  • Rangers place Tony Barnette (finger) on DL
    Rangers placed RHP Tony Barnette on the 10-day disabled list with a sprained right ring finger.

    Advice: It's not clear how long he might be sidelined, but it figures to be more than 10 days. Barnette has surrendered 20 runs -- 19 earned -- in 23 2/3 innings this season for an unsightly 7.23 ERA. He posted a 2.09 ERA over 60 1/3 innings for Texas in 2016. Rotoworld.com Jun 16, 1:21 pm
    10-Day DL

  • Santiago Casilla blows save against Yankees
    Santiago Casilla blew his third save of the season in Thursday's 10-inning win over the Yankees, surrendering one run on two hits in the ninth inning.

    Advice: Casilla came on to close it out with the A's holding a 6-5 lead. Things started off well enough for him, as he struck out Aaron Judge looking on a big curve to lead off the inning. Starlin Castro followed Judge with a double into the right field gap, though, after which Gary Sanchez stroked a single up the middle to score Castro and tie up the game. Casilla is now 10-for-13 in save chances and holds an unappealing 4.24 ERA in 23 1/3 innings. He had turned in four consecutive scoreless appearances prior to running into the Bronx bandsaw on Thursday night. Rotoworld.com Jun 15, 11:57 pm
