  • Gore strikes out three in no-decision
    MacKenzie Gore allowed two earned runs and struck out three in 6 ⅓ innings and got a no-decision against the Phillies on Saturday.



    Advice: Gore hasn’t allowed more than three earned runs in a start all season, but he only has two wins to show for it. He lowered his ERA to 3.30 with this outing. The 25-year-old left-hander gets a better matchup in his next game as he’s scheduled to face the Mariners at home next weekend.

  • Escapes with no-decision Saturday
    Eflin came away with a no-decision in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Blue Jays, giving up four runs on nine hits over six innings. He struck out three without walking a batter.

    Advice: After keeping Toronto hitters in check the first time through the order, things went off the rails for Eflin in the fourth and fifth innings, putting the Rays in a 4-0 hole that they eventually climbed out of. The right-hander did manage to keep the ball in the yard, snapping a streak of four straight starts in which he'd served up a homer. Eflin will take a 4.12 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and stellar 44:4 K:BB through 59 innings into his next outing, which is scheduled to come at home next weekend against the Royals. Rotowire.com Today, 6:13 pm
  • Makes history in no-decision
    Imanaga came away with a no-decision in Saturday's 1-0 win over the Pirates, scattering four hits and a walk over seven scoreless innings. He struck out seven.

    Advice: The 30-year-old lefty was locked in a pitcher's duel with Bailey Falter, preventing either starter from getting a decision, but Imanaga still impressed. He generated 22 swinging strikes among his 88 pitches, and he now sports a 0.84 ERA -- the lowest mark in history through a pitcher's first nine career MLB starts. Imanaga will also take a 0.91 WHIP and 58:9 K:BB through 53.2 innings into his next outing, which lines up to come on the road next weekend in St. Louis. Rotowire.com Today, 6:08 pm
  • San Diego-Atlanta postponed Sat.
    Elder and Atlanta will not play Saturday after their game versus the Padres was postponed due to inclement weather.

    Advice: The teams will make up the game as part of a doubleheader Monday. Elder will now start on Sunday instead, with Atlanta's scheduled starter for that day, Reynaldo Lopez, moving to Monday. Rotowire.com Today, 6:06 pm
  • Strong start wasted Saturday
    Falter came away with a no-decision in Saturday's 1-0 loss to the Cubs, allowing three hits and two walks over 7.2 scoreless innings. He struck out two.

    Advice: While he wasn't dominant, managing only six swinging strikes among his 83 pitches, Falter produced a steady stream of weak contact and didn't give up an extra-base hit or letting a baserunner get into scoring position until the eighth inning, when Colin Holderman replaced him and shut down a Cubs rally. Falter has delivered back-to-back quality starts, giving him four on the season, and the southpaw will take a 3.53 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 29:13 K:BB through 51 innings into his next outing, which is scheduled to come at home next weekend against Atlanta.

  • San Diego-Atlanta game postponed
    Darvish and the Padres will not play Saturday after their game in Atlanta was postponed due to inclement weather.

    Advice: The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Monday. Darvish will be pushed back a day to start Sunday, which would also mean delaying Joe Musgrove's (elbow) return from the injured list to Monday. Rotowire.com Today, 6:03 pm
  • Allen picks up fifth win Saturday
    Logan Allen threw six shutout innings, struck out seven and picked up the win in the Guardians’ 11-4 victory over the Twins on Saturday.



    Advice: The win was Allen’s fifth of the season. He lowered his ERA to 4.91 and his WHIP to 1.44 on the season. Allen has 43 strikeouts in 51 ⅓ innings this season. He’s only a spot starter for fantasy purposes, but he can contribute strikeouts in the right matchups. The 26-year-old left-hander is scheduled to face the Angels on the road next weekend.

    Advice: This was Ober’s worst start since he blew up against the Royals in his first start of the season. He had allowed two earned runs or less in six of his previous seven starts. Ober’s ERA is now 4.40 on the season. The 28-year-old right-hander is scheduled to face the Rangers at home next weekend.
