Player Notes

  • Johan Oviedo solid for seven in no-decision
    Johan Oviedo allowed three runs -- two earned -- in seven innings Monday against the A's.

    Advice: Oviedo did his part in allowing just four hits and striking out five, but those who picked him up for his two-start week were denied the win tonight after a one-run lead was blown in the eighth. He'll have a tougher assignment in his weekend start against the Mets. 36 minutes ago
  • Hopes to avoid rehab stint
    Lugo (calf) will face live hitters soon and hopes to return to the Padres without needing a minor-league rehab assignment, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Advice: Lugo threw a 50-pitch bullpen session Friday and completed running drills Saturday before another scheduled bullpen Monday, so he appears to be well on his way to a return from the calf strain that led to his placement on the 15-day IL in mid-May. Though the right-hander hopes to rejoin the big club without a rehab stint, it's uncertain whether the organization will follow that plan given that Lugo has already spent more than the minimum time on the injured list. Whenever he does return, Lugo should have a spot in the rotation waiting for him, as Ryan Weathers has been mostly unimpressive as his fill-in. 36 minutes ago
  • Colin Holderman gets first MLB save
    Colin Holderman picked up his first save despite giving up three hits in the ninth Monday against the A's.

    Advice: Getting the nod in the ninth with David Bednar needing the day off, Holderman probably should have blown the save in a one-run game tonight. However, Esteury Ruiz was caught stealing after his leadoff single, and the subsequent double and single failed to produce a run. The save is Holderman's first in 48 career appearances. He has a 2.74 ERA and 12 holds while mostly working the eighth this year. 37 minutes ago
  • Takes loss Monday
    Cabrera (1-1) allowed a run on two hits and a walk in one-third of an inning, taking the loss Monday versus the Rangers.

    Advice: Cabrera couldn't keep the game tied in the bottom of the ninth inning, giving up a walk-off single to Nathaniel Lowe. Things have gone sideways for Cabrera since the start of May -- he's allowed nine runs with a 10:11 K:BB over his last 11.1 innings. The southpaw has mostly seen low-leverage assignments while posting a 4.70 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 29:14 K:BB over 23 innings this season. He's added three holds and a blown save. 47 minutes ago
  • Brandon Bielak scatters 10 hits in victory
    Brandon Bielak surrendered three runs in 6 2/3 innings Monday in a win over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Bielak gave the Astros exactly what they wanted after being spotted six runs in the top of the first. He wound up allowing 10 hits, but he walked just one and the only homer was a solo shot. He improved to 3-2 with a 3.35 ERA in six starts and one relief appearance. He's a fine streaming option with the Guardians next on the schedule. 54 minutes ago
  • Dylan Floro gets double play for seventh save
    Dylan Floro got a double-play ball from the lone batter he faced to earn his second save in two days Monday against the Royals.

    Advice: Steven Okert opened the ninth in a 9-5 game, but he gave up a triple to Edward Olivares and an RBI single to Drew Waters before being removed with one out. Floro came in with Bobby Witt Jr. up and induced the game-ending grounder for his seventh save. A.J. Puk should be back this week to supplant Floro from the closer's role. Yesterday, 11:09 pm
  • Mike Mayers pummeled for seven runs in relief
    After taking over in the third, Mike Mayers was tagged for seven runs -- six earned -- tin three-plus innings by the Marlins on Monday.

    Advice: Mayers was nearly perfect in six innings as a bulk guy last Monday. Tonight, though, he gave up hits to nine of the 19 batters he faced, striking out just one along the way. The Royals have Thursday off, so they could give Mayers a relief appearance or two before the next time they need a fifth starter or bulk guy. Yesterday, 11:09 pm
  • Will Smith earns victory against Cardinals Monday
    Will Smith picked up his first victory of the season on Monday, working a scoreless ninth inning against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Smith came on to work the top half of the ninth inning in a tied game, and did his job by working a scoreless frame. He was then awarded with a victory after the Rangers walked it off in the home half of the inning. The 33-year-old southpaw has been terrific out of the Rangers' bullpen this season, compiling a 3.00 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and a 25/7 K/BB ratio over 21 innings while recording 10 saves. Yesterday, 11:05 pm
  • Tyler Alexander to start bullpen game for Tigers
    Tyler Alexander is set to start a bullpen game for the Tigers on Tuesday against the Phillies.

    Advice: The 28-year-old left-hander will likely work two or three innings in this one, before turning the ball over to someone else in the Tigers' bullpen. Alexander has had a rough season through his first 16 appearances, registering a 6.38 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and a 23/2 K/BB ratio. He can be avoided for fantasy purposes. Yesterday, 10:37 pm
