Player Notes

  • Kyle Gibson dominates in win over White Sox
    Kyle Gibson was dominant in Tuesday's win over the White Sox, punching out eight over seven innings of one-run ball.

    Advice: The right-hander scattered seven hits and a walk in the contest. The only blemish on his night was allowing Yoan Moncada to score on a wild pitch in the first inning. Gibson now sits at 7-10 on the season with a disappointing 5.76 ERA and 1.68 WHIP. He'll look to replicate this fine performance when he squares off against the Blue Jays in Toronto on Sunday.

  • Lucas Giolito gives up four runs in Sox debut
    Lucas Giolito pitched decently in his White Sox' debut on Tuesday, giving up four runs on six hits over six innings in a loss to the Twins.

    Advice: The rookie right-hander struck out four and didn't walk a batter. All of the damage against him came via the long ball, with Jorge Polanco and Kennys Vargas each clubbing solo homers and Eddie Rosario adding a two-run blast in the sixth. He'll look for better results when he takes on the Tigers on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:58 pm
  • Danny Duffy fans seven in win over Rockies
    Danny Duffy racked up seven strikeouts over six innings of two-run ball in Tuesday's victory over the Rockies.

    Advice: The left-hander allowed just one hit and three walks on the night. The only damage against him came on a mighty two-run blast from Nolan Arenado in the sixth inning. It was a nice bounce-back effort from Duffy who had struggled in his three previous starts. He now sports a 3.78 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 116/36 K/BB ratio across 131 innings on the season. He'll do battle against the division-rival Indians in Cleveland on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:39 pm
  • Scott Alexander secures first career save
    Scott Alexander secured the first save of his big league career in Tuesday's victory over the Rockies.

    Advice: Kelvin Herrera started the ninth inning with a one-run advantage, but got into a world of trouble after retiring the first two hitters. He allowed a triple to Jonathan Lucroy, then walked Carlos Gonzalez and Gerardo Parra on a combined nine pitches. He then fell behind 2-0 to Alexi Amarista when manager Ned Yost decided he had seen enough. Alexander came on and got him on a fielder's choice, ending the game. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:39 pm
  • Doug Fister tosses one-hitter in Cleveland
    Doug Fister turned back the clock Tuesday, spinning a one-hit complete game in the Red Sox' 9-1 win over the Indians.

    Advice: Fister entered the night with a 5.56 ERA on the season and was roughed up by the same Indians in his last start. He permitted 11 baserunners over just 4 1/3 frames in that outing last week but yielded only the one hit and a couple walks in an unexpected gem Tuesday, shutting down the Tribe's offense after Francisco Lindor led off the bottom of the first with a home run. It's Fister's first complete game in three seasons. Fister will take on the Orioles at Fenway on Sunday and it's hard to trust him as a fantasy option even after his beauty Tuesday.
