Jesse Hahn earned his second career win, allowing only one unearned run over seven innings as the Padres defeated the Mariners 4-1 on Thursday.

Hahn turned in his second consecutive dominant outing. He relented only the one unearned run in the fifth inning after walking Brad Miller to lead off the inning. Miller then advanced to second base on Everth Cabrera's fielding error, and scored on a Robinson Cano single. Overall, Hahn allowed five hits, walked two, and struck out seven. The rookie will take a 2.16 ERA and a 19/17 K/BB ratio in 16 2/3 innings into next week's start against the Giants on the road.

Thanks for making him looking bad <_< . It's 19/7 K/BB

wow they corrected it. Didn't know they made changes days after the typo

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?

So just saw this.

"Chase Utley went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles and two runs scored as the Phillies defeated the Cardinals 4-1 on Thursday.

Utley has cooled off since his torrid start to the season, but still sports a fantastic .305/.364/.474 slash line with 33 RBI. Depending on the metric and the playing time threshold, Utley remains the best-hitting second baseman in the game, with Luis Valbuena being his closest competitor. Jun. 19 - 11:27 pm et"

So wait, by what metric is Luis Valbuena the second best second baseman?

He has a good OBP but that's it. Even worse may be that he's played more than 2/3s of his games at 3B anyway so when you talk about best second basement he really isn't even in the conversation.

The writers probably all have this page bookmarked and followed so they know when to correct their posts.

This is just flat out knee-slap worthy....

Bubba Starling - OF - Royals

Royals outfield prospect Bubba Starling went 2-for-4 with a home run and a walk for High-A Wilmington, raising his season line to .210/.295/.345 .

Starling has been hot lately, going 11-for-23 with two doubles, one triple, and two home runs over his last five games, picking up at least two hits in each of them. Starling has MVP-level upside, but has failed to produce at a replacement-level since he was drafted with the fifth overall pick in 2011. If this hot streak can turn into something more, he could revive his former top-25 prospect status.

Yeah, he has zero chance to revive his top 25 prospect stats, zero. And I own the guy....

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Rangers are exploring the trade value of their "core-type" players.

The Rangers haven't decided yet whether they'll be buyers or sellers even though they're 11.5 games behind the A's in the AL West. However, they're apparently at the very least putting feelers out to asses the trade value of some of their players. Though he didn't say which specific players could be on the block, Grant lists Elvis Andrus, Alex Rios, Joakim Soria, Adrian Beltre and even Yu Darvish as those that fit the "core-type" label.

Whoa now!

Bryce Harper (thumb) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Monday.

Harper will play seven innings in right field for Double-A Harrisburg Thursday, nine innings in center field Saturday, take off Saturday and then play in left field Sunday. If all goes well -- and it has to this point -- he could be in the lineup versus the Rockies Monday. Harper has been on the shelf since late April with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb.

I don't care what Trout and Cabrera or anyone else does. The fact that Harper can play 9 innings on Saturday AND take the day off the same day makes him #1 overall pick material.

Pretty sure Freeman is a mere 24, not 29.

Freddie Freeman went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Freeman had RBI singles in the first and seventh innings. The 29-year-old has knocked in nine runs over his last eight games to bring his total up to 46 for the year. The Braves have won eight straight games and are now 10 games above .500 at 48-38.

Original blurb

Edwin Encarnacion left Saturday's game versus the A's with right quadriceps soreness.

Advice: Encarnacion was thought to have a more serious hamstring injury, after trying to beat out a double play relay in the first inning. He may avoid a trip to the disabled list, after this news.

Same blurb (not a new one) changed to

Edwin Encarnacion left Saturday's game versus the A's with right quadriceps soreness.

Encarnacion injured his right quad after trying to beat out a double play relay in the first inning. The injury looked pretty serious -- two trainers had to help him off the field. The Blue Jays are probably being vague with this initial diagnosis of soreness until they run him through a range of tests. A stint on the 15-day disabled list could very well be on the horizon.

Wrong blurb in the wrong player profile.

Rays prospect SS Riley Unroe was 3-for-5 with a home run, triple and three RBI on Thursday in his season debut for Rookie-level Princeton of the Appalachian League.

The 18-year-old switch hitter quickly matched his home run total from the 2013 season, when he batted .246/.376/.341 with 11 extra-base hits and seven stolen bases in 46 games for the Rays' Gulf Coast League affiliate. All three of Unroe's hits on Thursday came from the left side of the plate. Jun 20 - 6:42 PM

Just another example why you shouldn't read the BS they post at the bottom.

Math is hard

Pirates right-handed pitching prospect Nick Kingham was hit hard in his fifth start for Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday, allowing 10 hits and six runs.

Kingham also struck out six batters, and the hits were seven singles and three doubles. He allowed 15 hits and two runs (one earned) in his first four starts in the Triple-A International League, so this start can be chalked up to a bad day. Kingham threw 67 of his 69 pitches (69.0 percent) for strikes.

Trevor Bauer improved to 3-4, allowing three runs (two earned) in seven innings as the Indians walked away with a 5-3 win against the Yankees on Tuesday.

Bauer has been consistent, at least, allowing three or four runs in each of his last seven outings. He was able to outduel Masahiro Tanaka on Tuesday, allowing the Yankees to scrape out only four hits while walking two and striking out six. The promising right-hander carries a 4.23 ERA, a 1.39 ERA, and a 60/24 K/BB ratio. Bauer will face the White Sox at home to lead his team into the All-Star break.

The man has two ERA's!

Jacob deGrom fired seven innings of one-run ball Sunday in the Mets' 9-1 rout of the Marlins.

DeGrom struck out eight batters and allowed only five Miami hits over his seven frames. It was yet another impressive showing from the 26-year-old left-hander, who will finish the first half with a 3.18 ERA and 72/28 K/BB ratio in 73 2/3 innings. He's still available in 77 percent of Yahoo fantasy leagues. Jul 13 - 4:34 PM

He is a right handed pitcher...maybe they got confused because he bats lefty. Surprised they didn't mention his first big league RBI today.

Zach McAllister is expected to be recalled to start during Saturday's doubleheader versus the Tigers.

McAllister was just sent down Tuesday, but he's eligible to come back up as the Tribe's 26th man Saturday. The Indians will still have to call someone up to serve as their No. 5 starter next week. Danny Santana is an option

So, they're going to convert him to be a SP?

David Ortiz is back in the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

Big Papi didn't play Thursday after exiting Wednesday's game with back spasms, but he's made a quick recovery. The designated hitter will be facing David Price, who he had some harsh words for last month after Price hit him with a pitch

Pretty sure Ortiz was in the game up until the 9th on Thursday when he got pulled...

Kenley Jansen - R - Dodgers

Kenley Jansen racked up his 30th save of the season in style on Sunday, fanning all three Dodgers hitters that he faced.

The flame-throwing right-hander has made good on 30 of his 33 save chances on the season while compiling a 3.24 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 66/12 K/BB ratio over 41 2/3 innings. He hasn't allowed a run in his last 12 outings and remains one of the finest stoppers in the game today.

Mariners acquired OF Austin Jackson from the Rays via the Tigers for SS Nick Franklin in Thursday's three-team trade that sent David Price to Detroit.

We mocked Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik earlier in the day for attempting to patch huge outfield holes with Chris Denorfia, but Trader Jack got the last life. For a year now, he refused to sell low on Franklin, whom the organization had clearly soured on. His patience paid off today, when Tampa Bay had Jackson in the Price package but nowhere to put him with Desmond Jennings manning center field. James Jones and Dustin Ackley project to flank Jackson in Seattle's outfield for now, with Endy Chavez, Stefen Romero, Corey Hart and Denorfia coming off the bench. Jackson is suffering through a down year (.270/.330/.397), but we aren't concerned about him long-term.

Rotoworld blurb writers trying to make a joke about the joke being on them and they completely butcher it. Trader Jack gets the last life....maybe they are playing Super Mario Bros. while they are doing this...that would at least make some sense.

Rotoworld has a hard time determing how Asdrubal Cabrera fits in with the Nats. The blurb says Cabrera should be able to pick up at-bats backing up Anthony Rendon, Danny Espinosa and Ian Desmond. Most everyone else seems to think Cabrera replaces Espinosa as the stating 2nd basemen. More comical is Rotoworlds depth chart for the Nats that has Cabrera as the starting SS and Ian Desmond as the back up.

C 1 Wilson Ramos 2 Jose Lobaton 1B 1 Adam LaRoche 2B 1 Anthony Rendon 2 Danny Espinosa SS 1 Asdrubal Cabrera 2 Ian Desmond 3B 1 Ryan Zimmerman square_red.gifLF 1 Bryce Harper 2 Kevin Frandsen CF 1 Denard Span 2 Nate McLouth RF 1 Jayson Werth 2 Scott Hairston
