Angels activated INF Cliff Pennington from the 15-day disabled list.

He missed the minimum amount of time with a strained hamstring. Pennington will play pretty regularly until Andrelton Simmons (thumb) returns.
May 29 - 8:14 AM

Padres optioned LHP Keith Hessler to Triple-A El Paso.

Hessler has allowed 10 runs over six relief innings for the D'Backs and Padres this season. He should get another shot at some point.
May 29 - 8:12 AM

Padres activated LHP Matt Thornton from the 15-day disabled list.

Thornton had been out all season while rebounding from Achilles tendinitis. The veteran left-hander will work in a setup role for the Padres.
May 29 - 8:10 AM

Eduardo Nunez continued his dream season in Saturday’s 6-5 win over the Mariners, pounding out four hits, including his fifth homer of the year.

Nunez is now hitting .333/.363/.510 in one of the more unexpected performances of the year. He’s bounced around from third base to shortstop to second base defensively, which has helped his playing time remain high. Although his .366 BABIP suggests that his batting average should drop, he has an outside chance to hit double-digit homers and steal 20-plus bases. No shortstop did that in 2015.
May 29 - 1:43 AM

Wade Miley served up a trio of homers and only lasted four innings against the Twins on Saturday, ultimately getting tagged for five earned runs.

It was vintage Miley -- strikeout a ton, walk a couple, and give up the long ball. He struck out six, walked four, and allowed three homers. This is why Miley had a 4.46 ERA with the Red Sox in 2015 and now has a 4.95 ERA with the Mariners. The 29-year-old is what he is at this point and, in terms of fantasy leagues, that’s not a top-75 starter. He’ll look to get back on track against the Padres on the road.
May 29 - 1:42 AM

Phil Hughes gave up four earned runs on nine hits and three walks in just 4 2/3 innings in Saturday’s win over the Mariners.

It could’ve been worse. The Mariners had the bases loaded four different times against Hughes, but hitters went 0-for-4 with a double play in those situations. That helped the right-hander limit the damage, despite the 12 baserunners. He now has a 5.74 ERA with only 30 strikeouts in 53 1/3 innings and will next get the Rays at home.
May 29 - 1:41 AM

Paul Goldschmidt got on base four times in Saturday’s 8-7 win over the Padres, going 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and a pair of walks.

It was only Goldschmidt’s ninth home run of the year, which somehow seems relatively small, but he has already driven in 30 runs. He also swiped his sixth bag of the year for good measure. The All-Star first baseman is now hitting .250/.413/.453 and remains one of the elite fantasy players in any mixed format.
May 29 - 1:36 AM

Cesar Vargas got shelled on Saturday against the Diamondbacks, surrendering seven runs in just 1 2/3 innings.

Vargas allowed six hits -- one of them being a two-run shot from Paul Goldschmidt -- and two walks, so it was an all-around miserable outing for the young righty. Considering he had never made a start above Double-A prior to this year, fantasy owners should expect a few blow-up starts as he acclimates to the big leagues, especially given his penchant for the free pass. The ground-ball specialist may be able to carve out a back-end role in San Diego; however, that’s not too interesting in fantasy leagues.
