  • Twins place Justin Haley on 10-day DL
    Twins placed RHP Justin Haley on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder soreness.

    Advice: The Rule 5 pick has logged only 16 1/3 innings in nine appearances with the Twins this season, compiling a 6.06 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 13/5 K/BB ratio. He'll return at some point in June. Today, 7:19 pm
    10-Day DL
    L, 8-6 vs TB
  • Jhoulys Chacin gives up three in no-decision
    Jhoulys Chacin struggled in a no-decision against the Nationals on Sunday, allowing three runs on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings.

    Advice: On the positive side, Chacin did rack up six strikeouts on the afternoon while walking two. He has been extremely inconsistent this season, especially away from home, and now sports a troublesome 5.77 ERA and 1.46 WHIP on the season. He'll try to get back in the win column on Saturday against the Rockies. Today, 5:59 pm
  • Joe Ross struggles in loss to Padres Sunday
    Joe Ross struggled in a losing effort against the Padres on Sunday, surrendering five runs on 12 hits in four-plus innings of work.

    Advice: The right-hander walked one and struck out four on the afternoon. Ryan Schimpf got to him early with a two-run blast in the first inning and Chase d'Arnaud added a two-run single in the fifth. It was also the first start Ross made in which he didn't get a glutton of run support. He'll carry a 6.18 ERA and 1.52 WHIP into Saturday's start against the Athletics in Oakland. Today, 5:52 pm
    L, 5-3 vs SD
  • 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. Today, 4:40 pm
  • Marquez holds Cards to two runs over 5 2/3 IP
    German Marquez yielded two runs on eight hits over 5 2/3 innings in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Marquez struck out five and walked one on the afternoon. Both runs on his line scored via the solo home run, with Jedd Gyorko and Greg Garcia coming through with dingers in the sixth inning. Through seven starts, the 22-year-old right-hander is working to a 3.76 ERA and 1.38 WHIP. He has surrendered two or fewer runs in six of his seven outings to date. Marquez will try to keep this roll going in a road start against the Padres next time he toes the rubber. Today, 3:13 pm
  • Rockies ding Lynn for four runs as Cards fall
    Lance Lynn surrendered four runs on six hits over five innings in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: Lynn surrendered an RBI ground out to Alexi Amarista in the second inning to put the Cardinals behind 1-0, but it was a three-run homer yielded to Gerardo Parra in the fourth inning which truly put them behind the eight-ball. Lynn will bring a nice 2.93 ERA and 1.06 WHIP into a road showdown with the rival Cubs in his next scheduled outing. Today, 3:12 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. Today, 2:14 pm
  • Triggs allows six runs, one earned, in loss
    Andrew Triggs allowed six runs -- one earned -- over six innings Sunday as the A's fell to the Yankees.

    Advice: Aaron Judge slugged a grand slam off Triggs in the bottom of the third inning that was preceded by a Matt Joyce fielding error. Triggs gave up six total hits and walked one while striking out three. He'll carry a cool 5-4 record and 2.64 ERA into his next start at home versus the Nationals. Today, 1:29 pm
    L, 9-5 @NYY
  • Biagini sharp over six innings in loss
    Joe Biagini limited the Rangers to two runs over six innings Sunday in a loss.

    Advice: Biagini did his part, striking out seven batters and issuing only one walk over six strong innings, but Toronto's offense was only able to manage one run of support in the afternoon loss at Rogers Centre. Biagini now holds a sharp 3.64 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and 37/9 K/BB ratio in 42 innings (five starts, 14 relief appearances) this season for the Blue Jays. He'll get the Yankees at home next. Today, 1:03 pm
    L, 3-1 vs Tex
  • MadBum (shoulder) could begin throwing Friday
    Madison Bumgarner (shoulder) could resume a throwing program on Friday.

    Advice: It would be the first step in a lengthy rehab process. Bumgarner would begin with some light catch and then slowly build up his throwing progression. Once he's deemed ready for game action, he will need five rehab starts before rejoining the Giants' rotation. This is all assuming he progresses without a setback, which is far from a sure thing when you're coming back from a shoulder injury. Bumgarner won't be back until late July even in a best-case scenario. Today, 11:44 am
    10-Day DL
    W, 7-1 vs Atl
  • Logan Verrett recalled from Triple-A
    Orioles recalled RHP Logan Verrett from Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: Verrett is unscored upon in five relief innings with the big club this season. He'll offer length out of the bullpen. Today, 9:00 am
  • 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. Today, 8:29 am
  • Blaine Boyer called up from Triple-A
    Red Sox purchased the contract of RHP Blaine Boyer from Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Boyer is taking the roster spot vacated by Brian Johnson, who was sent down after posting a shutout in a spot start Saturday. It could be a one-day stay for Boyer, as he would seem to be a prime candidate to be designated for assignment when David Price (elbow) is activated Monday. Today, 7:00 am
  • Kyle Freeland dropped by the Cardinals
    Kyle Freeland allowed three earned runs, eight hits and two walks with four strikeouts over six innings in a loss against the Cardinals on Saturday.

    Advice: Freeland wasn't terrible in this one, but Adam Wainwright was nearly untouchable on the other side. He has posted six quality starts over the past seven outings and is worth a roster spot in most fantasy leagues. He'll look to get back into the win column next Thursday in Seattle. Yesterday, 11:41 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. Yesterday, 10:09 pm
  • Ross Striplng earns old-fashioned save
    Ross Stripling allowed just one hit over three scoreless innings while striking out two batters for a save Saturday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Stripling was impressive throwing 33 of his 44 pitches for strikes, so manager Dave Roberts allowed him to finish the game and save his bullpen for another day. He has been a godsend for Roberts, as the stretched out sometimes starter has filled in admirably when the starting pitcher goes down to injury. Stripling is cruising along with a 2.54 ERA and is useful in deeper rotisserie formats using true middle relievers. Yesterday, 9:34 pm
    W, 9-4 vs ChC
  • 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. Yesterday, 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. Yesterday, 5:43 pm
  • Lance Lynn sharp in no-decision
    Lance Lynn allowed just one run, two hits and two walks while striking out 10 batters over eight innings in a no-decision Tuesday at the L.A. Dodgers.

    Advice: Lynn threw 76 of his 123 pitches for strikeouts, matching Clayton Kershaw pitch for pitch in an exciting game from Dodger Stadium. He has posted quality starts in six of the past seven outings, lowering his ERA from 5.23 to 2.53 during the span. He'll look to snap his three-game winless drought when the Cardinals travel to Denver to face the Rockies on Sunday. Wednesday, 12:49 am
  • Biangini only lasts 4 1/3 against Brewers
    Joe Biagini gave up three runs over 4 1/3 innings in Tuesday’s 4-3 win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Biagini blanked the Brew Crew through the first four frames, but he got BABIP’d to death in the fifth with four singles, a walk and three runs. He issued three free passes on the night and recorded three strikeouts. Biagini was good in his first two starts, but that hasn’t been the case the last two times out. He’ll try for better results against the Reds in his next outing. Tuesday, 8:09 pm
    L, 3-1 vs Tex
  • 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
  • Jhoulys Chacin gives up eight runs in first
    Jhoulys Chacin lasted just two-thirds of an inning and gave up seven runs Tuesday against the Mets.

    Advice: Chacin gave up hits to eight of the 10 batters he faced. He had a 3.28 ERA in his previous eight starts, so he's not going anywhere. Still, this makes three times this season in which he's given up at least seven runs. Tuesday, 7:41 pm
  • German Marquez earns win over Phillies
    German Marquez held the Phillies to one run over six innings to win Tuesday.

    Advice: Marquez has allowed two runs over 19 innings in his last three starts. It's going to be awfully difficult to take him out of the rotation after Jon Gray returns next month. He's 3-2 with a 3.86 ERA. Tuesday, 7:15 pm
  • Joe Ross goes eight in win over Mariners
    Joe Ross pitched eight innings of one-run ball Tuesday to beat the Mariners in his return to the majors.

    Advice: Ross was really strong early on, reaching the mid-90s with his fastball. His velocity dipped steadily as the night went along, but the effectively never waned. We'd still like to see him maintain that fastball longer into outings before recommending him especially vehemently, but he needs to be owned in mixed leagues regardless. Tuesday, 6:55 pm
    L, 5-3 vs SD
  • Nationals recall Joe Ross for Tuesday start
    Nationals recalled RHP Joe Ross from Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: Ross will rejoin the Nationals' starting rotation on Tuesday night against the Mariners after tossing seven innings of one-run ball in his last start with Triple-A Syracuse. The young right-hander has struggled this season at the major league level, but he still carries a fair amount of fantasy upside and he'll give owners two starts this week. Tuesday, 1:04 pm
    L, 5-3 vs SD
  • Joe Ross to rejoin Nats' rotation Tuesday
    The Nationals are calling up right-hander Joe Ross to start Tuesday against the Mariners.

    Advice: Ross was surprisingly optioned to Triple-A Syracuse earlier this month, but his stint in the minors didn't last long. While he posted a 5.50 ERA over three starts in Triple-A, he threw seven innings of one-run ball with six strikeouts and one walk in his most recent outing. The 22-year-old had a 7.47 ERA over three starts prior to his demotion, but he's capable of much better if he's right and is worth picking up in fantasy leagues where he was dropped. Monday, 10:35 am
    L, 5-3 vs SD
  • Red Sox knock up Andrew Triggs for six runs
    Andrew Triggs allowed six runs (five earned) on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Triggs struck out seven and walked three in what proved to be an at-times trying start. After the A's drew ahead by a 3-2 score heading into the fifth inning, the 28-year-old right-hander proceeded to surrender RBI hits to Mookie Betts and Dustin Pedroia to fall behind once more. A subsequent two-run home run by Mitch Moreland in the sixth inning would drive him from the game. This was just the third time in nine starts that Triggs has allowed more than two runs. He will try for the rebound when he carries his 2.77 ERA and 1.13 WHIP into a road showdown with the Yankees next time out. Sunday, 4:30 pm
    L, 9-5 @NYY
  • 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. Sunday, 2:18 pm
  • Freeland allows four runs but earns win Sun.
    Kyle Freeland allowed four runs -- three earned -- over 5 2/3 innings but earned a win Sunday versus the Reds.

    Advice: Freeland didn't pitch all that well in this one, walking two and yielding five hits (including two home runs) while failing to make it out of the sixth inning, but he was able to easily out-duel Reds starter Bronson Arroyo. And the young right-hander slugged his first career home run in the top of the fifth inning. Freeland is now 5-2 with a 3.31 ERA through nine starts this season. He'll get the Cardinals at Coors Field next. Sunday, 1:32 pm
  • Brandon Workman recalled from Triple-A
    Red Sox recalled RHP Brandon Workman from Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Workman tossed three scoreless frames in a relief appearance earlier this month with the big club. He'll work in middle relief. Sunday, 10:00 am
  • Jon Lester records second victory
    Jon Lester surrendered three runs in six-plus innings Thursday in a victory over the Reds.

    Advice: Lester had a shutout going until the seventh, which started with three straight singles. The first run scored on the third hit, and both inherited runners came around to score off Hector Rendon. Fortunately, the Cubs were still up 9-3 at that point and ended up winning 9-5. The win was just Lester's second of the year. Thursday, 2:52 pm
  • German Marquez picks up win over Twins
    German Marquez pitched five innings of one-run ball in a victory over the Twins on Thursday.

    Advice: The Rockies are getting results from every youngster they've tried this year. Marquez had an ugly debut in the series where the Nationals conquered Coors last month, giving up eight runs, but he's allowed more than one run just once in four starts since. Thursday, 1:21 pm
  • Jhoulys Chacin strong versus Brewers
    Jhoulys Chacin pitched seven innings of one-run ball and struck out eight Wednesday against the Brewers.

    Advice: Chacin gave up nine runs on Opening Day. Since then, he's sporting a 3.28 ERA in eight starts. He has no mixed-league value while pitching for the Padres, but a contender might want him if he keeps this up. Wednesday, 10:45 pm
