James Shields got a no-decision, allowing three runs (one earned) in six innings as the Padres lost 9-4 to the Astros on Monday.

Advice: Shields was terrific, finishing the night with 12 strikeouts. The Padres scored their first run against him in the fourth inning when Jed Lowrie smacked a solo home run. They scored two more in the fifth, helped in part by a fielding error by shortstop Alexi Amarista. Shields limited the Astros to just six hits and a walk. He's sitting with a productive 2.90 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and a 41/9 K/BB ratio in 31 innings. Shields will go for his third win of the season in a home start against the Rockies next.

So awesome he pitched against both teams last night.

Back in the day there was a thread that posted many of the many misses in the Rotoworld/Sportsedge universe. Seems as good of a time to resurrect as any.  For example did you know Ronald Acuna an

I guess Turnbull is going to try and pitch to Gary with his left today... seriously how do you write for a fantasy site and not even know which hand a dude throws with. 

Not to mention, how is he going to rejoin the Reds rotation this weekend if his minor league rehab start is Thursday?

Not only did Hutchison not get a loss, the Jays beat the Red Sox.

Drew Hutchison was hit around in a loss to the Red Sox on Tuesday, yielding six runs over four innings.

The Red Sox rallied for four runs in the second inning and tacked on an additional run in both the third and fourth innings. Hutchison, when he was around the strike zone, was hittable, as the Red Sox racked up six hits and drew five walks. He recorded no strikeouts. The right-hander has an unsightly 6.67 ERA with a 1.52 WHIP and a 21/11 K/BB ratio in 27 innings. Hutchison will look for improved results in Cleveland against the Indians in his next start.

To be fair, they never said he got the loss, he was just hit around during a loss for the team. Even though they won, but still.

Don't have the exact blurb but found it funny when Rotoworld stated Ottavino missing a day due to triceps soreness was "nothing to worry about." Flash forward a week and he's DL'ed and no timetable to return.

Almost like they have people who have never followed baseball before writing these sometimes.

Happ allowed one run on six hits, walking one and striking out a season-high nine over 6.2 innings of a win against the Rangers Tuesday night.

Spin: Happ has been a breathe of fresh air for the Mariners, having posted four consecutive quality starts to begin the season. Now 2-1 with a 2.30 ERA, you can't ask much more of a fifth starter who gets you deep into each start, and keeps his team in a position to win. He was consistently getting ahead of hitters and spotting his pitches very well. If he continues to do that, he could be a nice inexpensive member of a fantasy rotation.



A breathe of fresh air makes no sense.

Betances was his usual dominating self on Saturday, striking out each of the four hitters that he faced. He hasn't allowed a run in 14 2/3 innings on the season while posting a 0.95 ERA and 25/8 K/BB ratio.

LOL. Hasn't allowed an ER, but his ERA is 0.95

Apparently, Ethier is so hot, he even homers off his own team's SP.

05.13... Andre Ethier's 5-for-5 performance helped the Dodgers trample the Marlins in Tuesday's win.

Spin: Ethier has had two other five-hit games, occurring on September 5, 2008 and May 19, 2006. Four of his hits in Tuesday's affair were singles; the other was a solo home run off of Mike Bolsinger, which broke a 1-1 tie in the fourth inning. Ethier has been remarkably productive, batting .329/.423/.598 with five home runs and 13 RBI, but 83 of his 97 plate appearances have come against right-handed pitching. The veteran was on the outside looking in before the season, but it'll be difficult for the Dodgers to keep him out of the lineup with the way he's been hitting.

Steer clear outside of Frank Ocean-deep formats until the 24-year-old shows signs of progress

Not really sure I understand what that means. Are Frank Ocean's lyrics deep? Is the ocean itself deep? Does Frank Ocean only play in 14-team NL Only leagues?

This is so hilarious. Jesus christ.

Carlos Sanchez is expected to join the White Sox on Friday in Oakland.

Micah Johnson was optioned to the minors on Thursday, clearing the way for Sanchez to take over as Chicago's primary second baseman. Sanchez, 22, is batting .344/.368/.466 with two home runs, 17 RBI, and five stolen bases in 29 games this season at the Triple-A level and could have some value in NL-only fantasy leagues. Emilio Bonifacio should continue to get some playing time at second, which muddies the situation a bit from a fantasy perspective.

Nice, NL only value!!

The following was posted within 5 mins of each other... I don't know which one is true but it seems both cannot be true.

With Luke Gregerson getting the night off, Chad Qualls pitched a hitless ninth for his fourth save Thursday against the Blue Jays.
Four saves in six weeks is pretty darn good for a setup guy. We're guessing the Astros didn't want to use Gregerson for a second straight night after he had just missed a few days with a family emergency. He should be ready to go tomorrow.

Luke Gregerson is expected to rejoin the Astros on Friday.
While he was activated from the family medical emergency list on Tuesday, he has yet to rejoin his club and has been away since last Friday. He'll resume his role as the Astros closer, where he's converted seven of his eight chances while posting a 2.57 ERA over 14 appearances.

I was just going to post the same. Awful...

Cory Spangenberg went 2-for-3 with two solo home runs as the Padres beat the Nationals on Thursday.

The homers were a rather surprising development, as they were Nos. 1 and 2 of his career. With the way Spangenberg is hitting -- slashing .283/.361/.377 on the year -- the Padres aren't going to be able to take him out of the lineup. Spangenberg will continue to shuttle between second and third, forming platoons with Jedd Gyorko and Will Middlebrooks while getting every day at-bats so long as he's producing. May 15 - 3:04 AM


fact checking is tough, simply clicking on Spang's name tells you he had 2 hrs last yr

Rays activated INF Nick Franklin from the 15-day disabled list

.

Franklin missed the first six weeks of the regular season with an oblique strain. He was expected to open as the Rays' starting second baseman, but it's not exactly clear how the 24-year-old fits into Tampa Bay's plans now. Franklin hit .286/.400/.333 on his seven-game minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Durham. He'll have NL-only fantasy value if he plays regularly.
_________________________________________
Looks like Franklin has more value in his absence from a league.

Alex Wood permitted just one run and struck out six over seven frames in Wednesday's win over the Dodgers.
He scattered seven hits and declined to issue a free pass. The stellar showing was good to see after Wood was scratched from his last start on Friday because of a stomach virus. He showed no ill effects here, keeping at bay a dangerous Dodgers lineup in Los Angeles. Wood has a decent 3.50 ERA, but it comes with a terrible 1.50 WHIP and only 38 strikeouts over 54 innings. May 28 - 1:16 AM

an hour before opening pitch:

jimmy rollins: "hi. my teammates and i wanted to know if you'll please issue us at least one free pass this evening."

alex wood: "i've processed your request but i'm going to have to decline."

(plus he actually had two walks last night)

New Player Note Thu, May 28

Adam Jones went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts in Thursday's loss to the White Sox.

Advice: Jones did hit a single against Chris Sale, but otherwise, he was held quiet. He hasn't had many of these kinds of games this season. For the year, Jones is hitting .313/.353/.472 with six homers, 25 RBI and 21 runs scored. His bat is one of the most consistent in the majors.

(Rotoworld.com)

--------------------------------------------------------

another very accurate and well-researched piece of journalism from rotoworld. they can give pulitzers to blurb writers, right?

(jones' last 21 games: .223 (19-85), 4 r, 1 hr and 3 rbi. the hr is the only one he's hit in his past 32 games.)

Yordano Ventura was on his game in a no-decision loss to the Cubs on Sunday, allowing just one run on four hits over seven innings.

Ventura earned a no-decision in the contest, as the game remained tied at 1-1 until David Ross broke the tie with a single in the 11th inning. Ventura was long gone by then, but he pitched well during his time on the mound. The only run to blemish his line came via an Alex Gordon RBI single in the sixth inning. Ventura struck out six, walked one and now holds a 4.26 ERA and 1.17 WHIP for the season. A Saturday afternoon home start against the Rangers is next on his schedule. May 31 - 6:10 PM


So I guess the Royals traded Gordon MID GAME to the Cubs but after his first at bat as a cubbie they traded back for him because of his rbi single? Yea..that's what happened.

Getting better all the time:

Brewers claimed INF Hernan Perez off waivers from the Brewers.

Perez owns a .160/.189/.179 batting line through 113 plate appearances in the majors, but he's just 24 years old and can play all over the infield. The Brewers designated Elian Herrera for assignment in order to make room for him on the 40-man roster.

Perhaps they sat on their hand until it went numb before claiming him thus making it feel like it was from someone else.
