Mat Latos allowed 11 hits and four runs over five innings in Saturday's no-decision against the Orioles.

Things could have been much worse for the right-hander, as both of the home runs he allowed came without men on base. It has been something of a high-wire act for Latos to this point, as he's got a 1.84 ERA and 1.09 WHIP despite not striking out many batters. Strikeouts aren't everything, of course, but relying on batted ball luck will only get you so far. We'll see if Saturday's start was an aberration or a sign of things to come when Latos meets up with the Twins on Friday.

Chase Anderson got lit up once again in Saturday’s loss to the Marlins, giving up six runs (five earned) on nine hits and four walks in just 4 1/3 innings.

After 11 scoreless innings to begin the 2016 campaign, Anderson has imploded for 15 earned runs in 13 1/3 innings, resulting in three-consecutive losses. The most concerning part of his tailspin has been the six homers allowed -- three of which came on Saturday night. The right-hander now owns a 5.55 ERA on the year, and his 5.96 FIP suggests that it’s truly been as bad as it seems.
Apr 30 - 11:15 PM

Wei-Yin Chen handcuffed the Brewers on Saturday night before his bullpen failed to strand a pair of runners in the seventh, ultimately ending his night with three runs allowed on 6 2/3 innings.

After a rocky debut against the Tigers, Chen has put together a run of four consecutive quality starts. He has yet to surrender fewer than two earned runs in an outing, but he’s always been a solid mid-rotation starter and fantasy owners who expected anything else were merely deluding themselves. A two-run flare into center from Ramon Flores with two outs spoiled what was otherwise a lovely performance from the lefty. Chen has a 4.26 ERA in 31 2/3 innings with just a 1.71 BB/9 walk rate. He should be good for an ERA in the mid-to-high 3.00s and 150 strikeouts. Just a solid fantasy workhorse with solid statistics in all fantasy categories.

Mookie Betts went 2-for-5 with a double, a stolen base and three RBI in Saturday's 8-0 demolition of the Yankees.

Betts kicked off the scoring with a two-RBI double in the second inning off righty Michael Pineda. Given the pre-season hype, some may not be satisfied with his .266/.298/.459 slash line. Few people realize, though, that he's been the third-best fantasy outfielder in 2016. A combination of four homers, 19 runs, 17 RBI and six stolen bases will do that. Betts has been very, very good for fantasy owners this year and should be a full five-category contributor.
Apr 30 - 11:13 PM

Kevin Gausman gave up three runs -- two earned -- over six innings in a no-decision Saturday against the White Sox.

The right-hander was largely good, surrendering just four hits and a walk while striking out three, but his bullpen couldn't hold on to get Gausman his first win. He's been strong in both of his starts since coming off the disabled list, owning a 2.45 ERA and 0.91 WHIP in those starts. He'll seek that elusive first win Friday against the A's.
Apr 30 - 11:11 PM

Jackie Bradley was perfect at the plate in Saturday's rout over the Yankees, going 3-for-3 with a walk, three RBI and two runs scored.

He effectively put away the game with an RBI triple to center field off lefty Chasen Shreve in the sixth inning and then followed it up with a two-RBI triple off Nick Goody in the seventh. The big night raised his slash line to .272/.326/.481 in 89 plate appearances. He's in the midst of a seven-game hit streak and has firm control of the starting role in center field for the Red Sox.
Apr 30 - 11:08 PM

David Ortiz homered for his second time in as many games, ultimately going 2-for-3 with a walk in Saturday's win over the Yankees.

He may be 40 years old and poised to retire, but Ortiz continues to rake with a .321/.418/.654 slash line in 91 plate appearances. A ludicrous 16 of his 25 hits have now gone for extra-bases, including his solo home run off Johnny Barbato in the seventh inning. It marked his fifth homer of the season. He only had six through the end of May a year ago. It's been quite the retirement tour thus far.
Apr 30 - 11:01 PM

Rick Porcello twirled a gem in Saturday’s win over the Yankees, going seven scoreless innings with six strikeouts and only one walk.

That makes 13 1/3 scoreless innings with 12 strikeouts in Porcello’s last two starts. The right-hander had little trouble with the Bronx Bombers, not allowing a single extra-base hit. Only one base runner advanced past second base, too, and that was quickly erased with a two-out grounder to second base. Porcello now has 36 strikeouts in 32 2/3 innings; however, considering his swinging-strike rate is perfectly in line with his career numbers, that’s likely to regress to his recent norms. Still, as someone who was heavily criticized for getting $82.5M over four years, his 2.76 ERA and five wins are being heartily embraced in Boston. He’ll next go on the road against the same Yankees club on Friday.
