Player Notes

  • Eric Lauer solid in Tuesday's no-decision
    Eric Lauer allowed one unearned run, three hits and two walks with seven strikeouts over six innings Tuesday in a no-decision against the Athletics.

    Advice: Lauer threw 63 of his 96 pitches for strikes in the quality start, including 15 of 22 first-pitch strikes. One of his walks were also of the intentional variety. He also made up for his other walk with a free pass of his own in two plate appearances. Lauer tied a career high with his six innings, and it was the second time he has exited without yielding an earned run. Next up for the lefty is a battle Sunday in San Francisco opposite fellow rookie Dereck Rodriguez. Rotoworld.com 29 minutes ago
  • Paul Blackburn posts no-decision on road
    Paul Blackburn allowed two earned runs, four hits and two walks with four strikeouts over five innings in a no-decision Tuesday in San Diego.

    Advice: Blackburn was much better than his last time out, but he still recorded just 11 first-pitch strikes to the 21 batters he faced. He is tentatively scheduled to work next Sunday on the road against the White Sox, but he remains an extremely shaky fantasy option despite the seemingly favorable matchup.

  • Matt Koch roughed up in Southern California
    Matt Koch allowed five earned runs, seven hits and two walks with no strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings in a loss on the road against the Angels on Tuesday.

    Advice: Koch was a bit wild in this one, throwing first-pitch strikes to 17 of the 27 batters he faced and he was charged with a pair of wild pitches, too. It was his first loss in four decisions dating back to his last setback on May 22. He was due for a stinker. Koch will look to bounce back on Monday night in Miami to kick off a two-start week.

  • German Marquez works six innings vs. NYM
    German Marquez allowed four earned runs, six hits and two walks with four strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Mets.

    Advice: Marquez threw 62 of his 95 pitches for strikes in the so-so outing, throwing first-pitch strikes to 13 of the 24 batters he faced while also uncorking a wild pitch. He has been a disaster at home, going 1-4 with a 7.45 ERA across eight outings at Coors Field while posting a 3-3 record and respectable 3.07 ERA in seven starts on the road. Opponents are hitting just .214 against him away from home, too. Unfortunately for his fantasy owners he'll be back home on Sunday against Miami. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:29 pm
  • Jason Vargas hammered at Coors Field
    Jason Vargas allowed seven earned runs, nine hits and no walks with no strikeouts over 2 1/3 innings in a loss Tuesday in Colorado.

    Advice: Vargas threw just 30 of his 52 pitches for strikes, including just seven first-pitch strikes to the 16 batters he faced, and he hit a batter while serving up three homers. All three of the blasts came in a disastrous third inning. His ERA has been north of 7.39 for the entire season, and it currently sits at 8.60. There is absolutely no reason for fantasy owners to look his way until he pieces together a few quality starts. He hasn't lasted longer than five innings in nine outings this season, so he has a long way to go to respectability. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:16 pm
