J.J. Hardy finished 2-for-3 in Saturday's loss against the Astros.

Hardy has hovered at or near the Mendoza line for a good chunk of the past month. However, he has three multi-hit games, and back-to-back two-hit efforts, pulling his average up to .219. That doesn't sound terribly impressive, but it's his highest mark since April 23.

Wade Miley allowed four earned runs, eight hits and three walks with just two strikeouts over five innings in a loss in Houston on Saturday.

The southpaw is 1-1 with a 4.24 ERA in six starts away from home, but he has a tremendous 0.92 ERA across four home outings. Overall he has a solid 3.02 ERA and would have a few more wins if not for weak run support from his offense. Miley remains useful in the back end of rotations for owners in deeper AL-only fantasy leagues.

Jose Altuve finished 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, two runs scored, an RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's game against Baltimore.

Altuve saw his average briefly dip under .300 for a few games, but this three hit game has him slashing .301/.367/.500 and he is up to 10 stolen bases, too. The All-Star second baseman can do it all, contributing a high rate of extra-base hits, RBI, a respectable strikeout-to-walk ratio and plenty of thefts.

Bud Norris pitched the ninth inning of Saturday's win over the Marlins.

It was a non-save situation. Norris allowed one run on a solo homer by Marcell Ozuna and also issued a walk but was clean otherwise. This came one night after Norris was removed with a minor knee injury. He should be fine going forward.
May 27 - 11:33 PM

George Springer finished 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Saturday's game against the Orioles.

Springer fired out of the chute with seven home runs through his first 14 games, but he has managed just three clouts over the past 31 outings dating back to April 18. The outfielder has posted back-to-back multi-hit games for the first time this season, raising his average from .231 to .242. Perhaps he is finally turning the corner after a dismal past several weeks.
May 27 - 11:23 PM

Zack Wheeler left Saturday's game against the Pirates with a blister.

Wheeler was at 94 pitches when he exited so his night was winding down anyway. The severity of his blister will determine Wheeler's availability going forward. Despite the blister, Wheeler turned in a quality start (6 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 2 BB, 5 Ks) and would have been in line for the win if not for a blown save by Addison Reed. His next start is scheduled for Thursday against Milwaukee.
May 27 - 11:22 PM

Will Harris worked a perfect ninth inning with two strikeouts for his second save of the season in Saturday's game against the Orioles.

Regular closer Ken Giles was not available after nailing down saves and racking up 28 pitches over the past two days. Harris has proven to be a capable late-innings pitcher, posting a respectable 2.49 ERA and 0.97 WHIP while also amassing 10 holds. He is a solid fantasy option in rotisserie formats for help in the ERA and WHIP categories.
May 27 - 11:13 PM

Dallas Keuchel allowed just one earned run, four hits and two walks while recording eight strikeouts across six innings in a win Saturday against the Orioles.

Keuchel showed no ill effects from the neck injury which forced him to the 10-day disabled list. He made 86 pitches, throwing 55 for strikes, and continues to mow down opponents. Keuchel is now 8-0 with a 1.81 ERA and sparkling 0.88 WHIP, and he is even better at home. The southpaw is 4-0 with a 1.04 ERA in five outings at Minute Maid Park this season. His next scheduled start is set for Friday in Texas.
