  • Gregory Polanco goes deep in loss to Mets
    Gregory Polanco crushed his third home run of the season as the Pirates fell to the Mets on Sunday night.

    Advice: His solo shot in the second inning was the only offense that the Pirates could muster against Mets' starter Matt Harvey. He also singled and came around to score the club's other run in the eighth inning. With his 2-for-4 effort, Polanco is now slashing .265/.340/.417 with three homers and 11 RBI on the season. Yesterday, 8:27 pm
  • Tyler Glasnow gives up five in loss to Mets
    Tyler Glasnow's troublesome 2017 season continued on Sunday as he allowed five runs on eight hits over five innings in a loss to the Mets.

    Advice: Glasnow struck out three on the evening and didn't walk a batter. He kept the Mets' offense at bay through the first three innings, but they broke through for a pair in the fourth on a two-run double by Asdrubal Cabrera and tacked on three more the following frame. The rookie hurler now sports a cringe-inducing 6.95 ERA and 1.90 WHIP on the season. He'll hope for better results in a rematch against the Mets in New York on Saturday. Yesterday, 8:26 pm
  • Twins option Kennys Vargas to Triple-A
    Twins optioned 1B/DH Kennys Vargas to Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: After going hitless in eight plate appearances on Sunday (including four strikeouts), Vargas gets the boot. He was hitting .258/.280/.483 with five homers and 19 RBI in 24 games with the Twins. Yesterday, 7:47 pm

  • Javier Baez cranks solo home run in defeat
    Javier Baez went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Baez socked a solo home run off of an unusually unsettled Clayton Kershaw in the fourth inning. The bomb was his eighth of the season. He has picked up multiple hits in three of his last eight games and is now slashing .268/.299/.500 overall. Yesterday, 4:44 pm
  • Lester pitches into fourth allowing six runs
    Jon Lester struggled in Sunday's 9-4 loss to the Dodgers, yielding six runs on seven hits over 3 1/3 innings.

    Advice: A pair of three-run home runs proved to be the culprit in this disappointing outing, as Cody Bellinger took Lester deep for a three-run shot in the second inning and Kike Hernandez did likewise in the third. He had been pitching to a brilliant 0.86 ERA in his previous three outings before the Dodgers mucked that up on Sunday. The veteran southpaw will try for cleaner results when he carries his 3.86 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 67/23 K/BB ratio (11 starts) into a road showdown with the rival Cardinals next time out. Yesterday, 4:40 pm
  • McCullers improves to 6-1 with win over O's
    Lance McCullers allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits over six innings in Sunday's win over the Orioles.

    Advice: McCullers fanned eight and walked two in the victory. All three runs on his line scored off the bat of Jonathan Schoop, who burned him for a two-run home run in the first inning and an RBI infield single in the second. For the season as a whole, the right-hander is pitching to a sparkling 2.48 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 73/19 K/BB ratio across 65 1/3 innings. He will try to keep the good times rolling when he takes on the Rangers in a road outing next time out. Yesterday, 2:18 pm
  • Red Sox option Brandon Workman to Triple-A
    Red Sox optioned RHP Brandon Workman to Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: The Red Sox needed to clear a roster spot for David Price who is returning from the disabled list on Monday. The 28-year-old right-hander appeared in just one game for the big league club, firing three scoreless innings. He'll get another opportunity with the Red Sox this summer. Yesterday, 2:14 pm

  • Mike Trout (thumb) to undergo MRI on Monday
    Mike Trout will undergo an MRI on Monday on his injured left thumb.

    Advice: He was diagnosed with a left thumb sprain on Sunday, but the Angels want the additional exam to help determine the severity. No decision will be made on a potential trip to the disabled list until after they get the results of that exam. Yesterday, 2:10 pm
    6:07 pm vs Atl
  • Howie Kendrick expected to return on Monday
    Howie Kendrick is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Monday.

    Advice: Where, or how much, he'll play upon his return remains up in the air. His injury allowed Aaron Altherr to seize a starting job in the Phillies' outfield and he has turned into perhaps their best hitter. Look for Kendrick to function in some sort of utility role. Yesterday, 2:02 pm

  • Shoemaker allows four earned in loss to MIA
    Matt Shoemaker surrendered four earned runs over 4 2/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: In his last start, Shoemaker yielded just three hits over 6 1/3 innings in a combined shutout of the Rays. But it was a very different experience for him on Sunday. Giancarlo Stanton hit a solo bomb in the first inning and J.T. Riddle added a two-run blast in the fifth, just after an RBI single by Ichiro Suzuki. Shoemaker's season ERA jumped from 3.97 to 4.26 in the loss. He'll get the Twins at home next. Yesterday, 1:52 pm
  • Mike Trout diagnosed with left thumb sprain
    Mike Trout was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Marlins with a left thumb sprain.

    Advice: He went for precautionary X-rays which ruled out any fractures. The Angels have yet to comment on how much time, if any, he'll miss due to the injury, but it doesn't sound like it should keep him down for long. Yesterday, 1:26 pm
    6:07 pm vs Atl
  • Trout leaves game with apparent hand injury
    Mike Trout departed Sunday's game versus the Marlins in the sixth inning with a left hand injury.

    Advice: Trout jammed his hand into the second base bag on a stolen base attempt in the fifth inning. He initially remained in the game after a visit from the trainer but was then removed an inning later. The Angels should have an update on their star outfielder soon. Meanwhile, Trout's fantasy owners will hold their breath. Yesterday, 12:27 pm

  • Jon Gray (foot) throws boot-less 'pen session
    Jon Gray (foot) threw a successful 35-pitch bullpen session Sunday without wearing a walking boot.

    Advice: It's his first boot-less bullpen session since he was placed on the disabled list in mid-April with a stress fracture in his left foot. Gray will now increase his baseball activity level and doesn't appear to be too far off from a rehab assignment. He's expected to need at least three rehab starts before being activated, so it will still be a while. Yesterday, 11:18 am
    10-Day DL

  • Tito confirms Danny Salazar headed to bullpen
    Indians manager Terry Francona said Sunday that Danny Salazar will available out of the bullpen as soon as Wednesday or Thursday.

    Advice: The skipper left open the possibility that Salazar could get a start at some point during the team's road trip that begins on Friday, but the talented-but-frustrating righty is headed for relief duty for now. That means Mike Clevinger and Josh Tomlin will keep their rotation spots with Corey Kluber (back) returning this week. Salazar ranks fourth in baseball with a 30.9 percent strikeout percentage, but he's also fourth in walk percentage at 11.9 percent. Additionally, he's served up 11 home runs and his 5.50 ERA ranks 83rd out of 93 qualifiers. Yesterday, 8:29 am
  • Mark Melancon nails down 10th save
    Mark Melancon needed just four pitches to record two outs in Saturday's appearance against the Braves, nailing down his 10th save.

    Advice: Melancon is a perfect 5-for-5 in save opportunities in the month of May, allowing just one earned run across 4 2/3 innings. He hasn't show any ill effects from the elbow injury which landed him on the 10-day disabled list to kick off the month of May. Overall he has walked just one batter while recording 12 strikeouts across 14 1/3 innings. Yesterday, 12:31 am
  • Mike Foltynewicz knocked around in Frisco
    Mike Foltynewicz allowed five earned runs, seven hits and a walk with four strikeouts over four innings in a loss in San Francisco on Saturday.

    Advice: The shabby outing snapped a three-game winning streak, dropping his May record to 3-2 with a 6.12 ERA. He has served up nine homers over 50 2/3 innings this season while posting a respectable 41 strikeouts. Foltynewicz has shown some glimpses of brilliance, but he is on a poor team and too inconsistent to rely upon outside of deeper NL-only formats. Saturday, 11:59 pm
  • Trevor Story starting to warm up
    Trevor Story went 1-for-4 in Saturday's game against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Story has hit safely in each of his past four games since coming off the 10-day disabled list. It isn't much, but he is 4-for-14 (.286) with two doubles, a homer and two RBI during the four-game run. He was a feel-good story in 2016, but so far he has been a big disappointment in 2017 with a dismal .192 batting average. Saturday, 11:55 pm
  • Jon Lester set for marquee matchup Sunday
    Jon Lester will face Clayton Kershaw in Sunday's series finale at L.A. Dodgers.

    Advice: Lester has posted a 0.86 ERA over his past three regular-season starts against Dodger Blue, while Kershaw has struck out 68 Cubs hitters over his past 53 2/3 innings in eight starts while holding them to a .218 average. It sounds like quite the pitching duel is on tap at Chavez Ravine on Sunday afternoon. Saturday, 10:09 pm
  • Trout hits 16th homer in win over Marlins
    Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Trout gave the Angels an early lead with his 16th homer of the season in the first inning. He leads the league with those 16 homers, and he's also at the top of the leaderboard in batting average (.342) and runs scored (36), among others. His 36 RBI are an embarrassing fourth in the league, unfortunately. Saturday, 6:39 pm
    6:07 pm vs Atl
  • Danny Salazar likely headed to bullpen
    According to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, "indications" are that Danny Salazar could be moved to the bullpen.

    Advice: Cleveland will need to bump someone from the starting rotation with Corey Kluber (back) returning Thursday against the Athletics. With Mike Clevinger pitching extremely well (2-1, 2.82 ERA), it looks like Salazar could be the odd man out. Salazar only has three quality starts in 10 outings this year while struggling to a 5.50 ERA. Saturday, 6:04 pm
  • Salazar struggles again in loss to Royals
    Danny Salazar had command issues in Saturday's loss to the Royals, walking five while allowing six hits and four runs -- three earned -- over 5 1/3 innings.

    Advice: He's been able to largely keep his control in check this season -- relatively, at least, for a guy who rarely seems to know where it's going -- but his five walks give him 28 free passes in 52 1/3 innings this year. The loss dropped him to 3-5 with a 5.50 ERA and 1.59 WHIP through 10 starts. Despite his issues, a date with the A's on Thursday could still yield strong results for the 27-year-old. Saturday, 5:43 pm
  • Javier Baez getting a breather Saturday
    Javier Baez is not in the Cubs' lineup Saturday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: He's just getting a breather. Ian Happ will handle second base and fifth against Dodgers right-hander Brandon McCarthy. Baez has been red-hot at the plate, earning nine hits in his last 19 at-bats. Hopefully Saturday's absence won't ruin his momentum. Saturday, 1:40 pm
  • Polanco homers, singles vs. Mets on Friday
    In his first game action since returning from the disabled list, Gregory Polanco went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in Friday’s loss to the Mets.

    Advice: Polanco, fresh off missing 10 days with a strained left hamstring, homered in the fourth inning and singled in the ninth. After going without a home run through his first 30 games this season, the 25-year-old has gone deep twice in his last five games. He’s batting .260/.341/.398 overall. Friday, 7:12 pm
  • Gray (foot) hopes for mound work this weekend
    Jon Gray (foot) hopes to throw a bullpen session this weekend without wearing a walking boot.

    Advice: He's been throwing bullpen sessions while wearing the boot but is aiming to ditch it this weekend. Gray will require at least three rehab starts before rejoining the Rockies' rotation, so it's going to be a while. Manager Bud Black indicated earlier this week that he expected Gray back in three weeks, so a mid-June return looks like the best-case scenario. Friday, 7:24 am

  • Bucs activate Gregory Polanco from the DL
    Pirates activated OF Gregory Polanco from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: Polanco was on the disabled list for exactly 10 days with a strained left hamstring. He is not in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Braves, but the 25-year-old outfielder should be available off the bench and he figures to start Friday's series opener versus the Mets. Polanco owns a disappointing .252/.336/.370 batting line with one home run and six stolen bases in 34 games this season. Thursday, 7:13 am
  • Polanco (hamstring) ran the bases Wed.
    Gregory Polanco (hamstring) ran the bases Wednesday at SunTrust Park in Atlanta.

    Advice: Polanco will meet with manager Clint Hurdle and the Pirates' medical staff on Thursday to determine whether he is ready to be activated from the disabled list. "Early responses have been positive," head trainer Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday. "He feels really good right now." Polanco has been on the 10-day disabled list since May 17, retroactive to May 15, with a strained left hamstring. Thursday, 6:06 am
  • Trout doubles twice and scored a run vs Rays
    Mike Trout doubled twice and scored a run in Wednesday's loss to the Rays.

    Advice: He doubled in the first inning and rode home on an Albert Pujols dinger. He finished 2-for-4 in the ballgame. Trout is flying well over his stellar career rates in just about every category. He is batting .347/.466/.760 for a 1.266 OPS with 15 home runs, 34 runs scored, 35 RBI and nine stolen bases. The best player in the game keeps getting even better. Wednesday, 7:42 pm
    6:07 pm vs Atl
  • Kendrick (oblique) will need four games
    Howie Kendrick (oblique) will play in a minimum of four games during his minor league rehab assignment.

    Advice: Kendrick will be moving around from left field, third base and first base during his assignment, which is set to begin on Wednesday. He could be activated next week if he does not experience any setbacks. The veteran has not played since April 15 due to a strained oblique muscle. Wednesday, 1:45 pm

  • Vargas goes 2-for-4 with two RBI vs. O's
    Kennys Vargas finished 2-for-4 with two RBI in the Twins' defeat of the Orioles on Wednesday.

    Advice: Vargas got the scoring started for Minnesota with a two-run single in the top of the first inning. He also singled again in the top of the fifth. The 26-year-old switch-hitter is slashing .270/.295/.527 with five home runs and 18 RBI in 21 games this season as an active bench bat for the Twins. Wednesday, 1:03 pm

  • Javy Baez at leadoff for CHC on Wednesday
    Javier Baez is batting leadoff for the Cubs on Wednesday night against the Giants.

    Advice: A nice reward for his hot May. Baez has slashed .318/.338/.636 with six home runs, 16 RBI, two stolen bases, and 13 runs scored in 19 games since the calendar flipped from April. Ben Zobrist is out of the Cubs' starting lineup on Wednesday against Giants lefty Matt Moore, as is Willson Contreras. Miguel Montero will catch. Wednesday, 12:09 pm
  • Howie Kendrick (oblique) set for rehab games
    Howie Kendrick (oblique) is set to begin a minor league rehab assignment Wednesday with Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Kendrick received clearance to play in minor league games after taking outdoor batting practice on Tuesday at Citizens Bank Park. He's been out since April 15, so the Phillies will probably have him stay at Triple-A through the weekend to get properly tuned up. Kendrick was batting .333/.395/.487 over his first 43 plate appearances this season with the Phils. The versatile veteran should get something close to everyday playing time when he returns.

  • Glasnow pitches well in Atlanta
    Tyler Glasnow held the Braves to two runs over six innings Tuesday.

    Advice: Glasnow surrendered nine hits – including a solo home run to Matt Adams – and also walked a pair, but he managed to hold Atlanta relatively in check. He also did his part and then some at the plate, picking up three singles in three at-bats. Glasnow remains volatile for fantasy purposes, as his penchant for free passes can result in blowup starts at any time. He faces the Mets on Sunday. Tuesday, 11:06 pm
  • Lance McCullers only goes five but wins
    Lance McCullers lasted just five innings but got a win Tuesday, holding the Tigers scoreless in a 6-2 victory.

    Advice: The only hit McCullers surrendered was a Miguel Cabrera infield single in the fourth inning. However, he walked a pair, hit a batter and struck out five to push his pitch count to 96 and Astros manager A.J. Hinch decided that was enough. He's gone seven frames just twice this season, but McCullers boasts a 2.43 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 65/17 K/BB ratio over 59 1/3 innings. He'll take on the Orioles at home on Sunday. Tuesday, 8:50 pm
  • Lester whiffs 10 in complete game vs. Giants
    Jon Lester went the distance and struck out a season-high 10 while limiting the Giants to one run in a 4-1 victory Tuesday.

    Advice: The Giants managed to plate a run with a couple doubles in the fifth inning, but they picked up just four hits on the night and didn't draw any walks. Lester needed just 99 pitches to complete the masterpiece. It was his fourth complete game since joining the Cubs, with his last one coming also coming against the Giants last September. Lester will bring a 3.19 ERA into Los Angeles against the Dodgers on Sunday. Tuesday, 7:46 pm
  • Polanco (hamstring) takes on-field BP
    Gregory Polanco (hamstring) took on-field batting practice Tuesday evening.

    Advice: He also took additional hacks in an indoor cage and did some light running. "I feel so good," Polanco said after the workout. "I'm going to get back in the lineup soon." It sounds like the 25-year-old outfielder could be activated from the disabled list this weekend, forgoing a minor league rehab assignment. Tuesday, 7:33 pm
  • Matt Shoemaker shuts down Rays
    Matt Shoemaker allowed three hits over 6 1/3 innings and combined with three relievers on a shutout of the Rays on Tuesday.

    Advice: Shoemaker has won three straight. He's sporting a 3.23 ERA with 50 strikeouts in 47 1/3 innings over his last seven starts. Tuesday, 7:32 pm
  • Mike Trout hits 15th homer
    Mike Trout hit his 15th homer and walked Tuesday against the Rays.

    Advice: Trout hit his 15th homer on June 25, his 75th game, last year. It took him 42 games this season. Tuesday, 7:27 pm
    6:07 pm vs Atl
  • Kennys Vargas doubles twice Tuesday
    Kennys Vargas notched a pair of doubles in Tuesday's win over the Orioles.

    Advice: Both two-baggers came off of starter Dylan Bundy. It was the first two-hit game since May 3 for Vargas, who has been struggling of late and finding himself on the bench fairly often as a result. Tuesday, 6:46 pm

  • Kendrick (oblique) nearing rehab assignment
    Howie Kendrick (oblique) could begin a minor league rehab assignment later this week.

    Advice: Kendrick took outdoor batting practice Tuesday for the first time since straining an oblique muscle in mid-April. He still has some boxes to check before the Phillies can map out an exact timetable for his return to the active roster. Aaron Altherr has run away with the Phillies' starting left field job over the last month. Tuesday, 2:16 pm

  • Story not in COL lineup for first game off DL
    Trevor Story is not in the Rockies' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Phillies.

    Advice: Story was activated from the disabled list Tuesday afternoon after missing two weeks with a left shoulder strain, but he's on the bench versus Philadelphia right-hander Zach Eflin. Alexi Amarista will start at shortstop and bat seventh for the visiting Rockies. Story has posted a disappointing .180/.289/.396 batting line in 33 games this season. Tuesday, 12:56 pm
  • Rockies activate Trevor Story from DL
    Rockies activated SS Trevor Story from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: As indicated Rockies manager Bud Black, Story will return to finish out the series in Philadelphia. The 24-year-old was batting just .180/.289/.396 through 33 games prior to landing on the disabled list with a left shoulder strain earlier this month. The Rockies and fantasy owners will have to hope that the time away did him some good. Tuesday, 12:30 pm
  • Baez not in Tuesday's lineup vs. Giants
    Javier Baez is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Giants.

    Advice: Baez went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer on Monday, but he'll take a seat on Monday against right-hander Jhonny Cueto. Ben Zobrist will make the start at second base and bat leadoff while Kyle Schwarber will return to left field and bat second. Ian Happ is starting in center field and will bat fifth. Tuesday, 11:10 am
  • Story (shoulder) could be activated Tuesday
    Trevor Story (shoulder) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Tuesday.

    Advice: Rockies manager Bud Black passed along the news during an appearance on MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM. Story, out since May 11 with a left shoulder strain, went 3-for-11 (.273) with a homer over four games during his minor league rehab assignment. The 24-year-old was batting just .180/.289/.396 through 33 games prior to the injury, but the power has still been there and he obviously plays half of his games in a great park for offense. Tuesday, 8:21 am
  • Gray (foot) three weeks away from return
    Rockies manager Bud Black said during an appearance on MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM on Tuesday that Jon Gray (foot) is "three weeks away from pitching for us."

    Advice: This matches up with a recent prediction from Rockies' beat writer Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post. Gray suffered a stress fracture in his left foot last month and has been throwing despite being in a boot. His recovery is taking longer than originally anticipated, but the Rockies have managed to put together the best record in the NL without him. They'll happily welcome him back, of course. Tuesday, 8:04 am

    12:10 pm vs Sea
  • Melancon earns ninth save Monday vs. Cubs
    Mark Melancon recorded his ninth save of the season Monday in the Giants' 6-4 win over the Cubs.

    Advice: Melancon gave up a two-out single to Javier Baez but fanned Ian Happ to seal the victory for San Francisco. The veteran closer is 3-for-3 in save opportunities since coming off the disabled list May 17. He has a 2.63 ERA and 11/1 K/BB ratio in 13 2/3 total innings this year. Monday, 8:33 pm
  • Baez goes 3-for-4 with two-run HR in loss
    Javier Baez finished 3-for-4 with a two-run homer in the Cubs' loss to the Giants on Monday.

    Advice: Ben Zobrist was the only other Cubs batter to register multiple hits in this one. Baez struck his two-run shot off Giants starter Ty Blach in the bottom of the eighth, but the Cubs entered that inning trailing 6-0 and would ultimately fall 6-4. Baez is batting .264/.301/.496 with seven home runs and 21 RBI in 38 games this season for the defending World Series champions. Monday, 8:24 pm
  • Folty earns third win Monday versus Pirates
    Michael Foltynewicz allowed two runs -- one earned -- over five innings Monday in the Braves' defeat of the Pirates.

    Advice: Folty easily out-dueled Pirates ace Gerrit Cole, who was lit up for five earned runs on 10 hits by the Atlanta offense. The right-hander struck out five Pittsburgh batters and worked around eight hits to earn his third win of the season. Folty will carry a 3.86 ERA into his next start on the road versus the Giants. Monday, 8:07 pm
  • Danny Salazar beats Astros to earn third win
    Danny Salazar picked up his third victory of the season on Sunday, allowing three runs on four hits over 5 2/3 innings against the Astros.

    Advice: The right-hander punched out seven on the afternoon while walking three. He continued to have trouble with the long ball though, surrendering homers to Carlos Beltran and Jose Altuve. He'll head into Friday's start against the Royals with an uncharacteristically bad 5.55 ERA and 1.53 WHIP. May 21, 2:18 pm
  • Trout fills box score in Angels' rout of Mets
    Mike Trout went 2-for-3 with a homer, three RBI, two walks, a stolen base, and two runs scored in the Angels' 12-5 rout of the Mets on Sunday.

    Advice: Trout launched a two-run homer off Mets starter Tommy Milone in the top of the second inning and added an RBI double in the top of the third. The best player in baseball is slashing .350/.466/.757 with 14 home runs, 34 RBI, nine stolen bases, and 31 runs scored in 40 games this season. May 21, 1:56 pm

  • Brandon Workman recalled from Triple-A
    Red Sox recalled RHP Brandon Workman from Triple-A Pawtucket.

  • Mark Melancon secures eighth save
    Mark Melancon allowed one earned run and two hits in a 22-pitch 13th inning for his eighth save of the season in Saturday's game in St. Louis.

    Advice: Melancon has back-to-back saves in St. Louis since coming off the 10-day disabled list. He has allowed seven hits over his past four innings over four appearances but he remains a solid fantasy option all most formats. May 20, 10:06 pm
  • Mike Trout cooled off in Queens
    Mike Trout was hitless in two at-bats with a pair of walks, a sacrifice fly, a run scored and two walks in Saturday's game at N.Y. Mets.

    Advice: Trout has had just three hitless games in 26 outings dating back to April 16. He has picked up the pace in the walks department, posting 10 free passes over his past seven outings. Whether he is getting on base with hits or walks, he is still making things happen. He is cruising along with an amazing .343 average and 1.324 to put smiles on the faces of his fantasy owners most every night. May 20, 8:56 pm
    6:07 pm vs Atl
  • Mark Melancon notches first save since return
    Making his first appearance since coming off the DL, Mark Melancon threw a scoreless ninth Friday for his seventh save.

    Advice: Melancon gave up a hit, but he started a double play afterwards and threw just nine pitches in his inning. Since he was so efficient, the Giants will probably use him Saturday if they have another save chance. May 19, 11:00 pm
