Kenley Jansen allowed a late run but still managed to pick up his 13th save of the season in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

Jansen trotted into the game with his team up 4-2. The two-run cushion turned out to be necessary. After striking out the first batter of the frame, Jansen coughed up a solo homer to David Peralta before recording the last two outs minus any issues. Jansen's allowed runs in each of his last two appearances, but owners should look to a 13-for-14 save chance record, 1.53 ERA and stellar 30/1 K/BB ratio over 17 2/3 innings rather than these little blips of trouble on the radar. As long as he's healthy, he remains one of the top closers in the game.

Aaron Hill went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers.

Hill connected for his fourth homer of the season when he launched a Brett Anderson offering into the seats in the sixth inning. He also chipped in with a sacrifice fly in the eighth to push his overall RBI total for the season to an even 20. Hill is a possible candidate for trade as we enter July, though his .224/.284/.333 slashline makes one wonder what, if anything, the Diamondbacks could get in return for the 33-year-old infielder.
Jul 2 - 1:04 AM

Brett Anderson picked up his fifth win of the season in Wednesday's 4-3 victory over the Diamondbacks, yielding just one run over seven innings.

Anderson scattered seven hits over his seven innings of work. The lone run to dent his line came when he served up a solo homer to Aaron Hill in the sixth inning. Otherwise, Anderson was aces, striking out seven against two walks and improving to 5-4 on the year. This isn't anything new, as he's allowed two or fewer runs in seven of his last eight starts. Anderson's bugaboo has always been health, but for the time being, he is pitching some of his best baseball of the season. Overall, he holds a 3.00, 1.29 WHIP and 69/26 K/BB ratio over 96 innings. A home date with the Phillies awaits for his next start.

Jose Altuve went 3-for-4 with a HBP, an RBI and two runs scored in the Astros' 6-5 defeat of the Royals on Wednesday.

Altuve also swiped a pair of bases. He's hit in 10 straight games to push his average back up to .298. That doesn't quite measure up to last year, but though three months, he's given his fantasy owners exactly what they paid for.
Jul 2 - 12:56 AM

Robbie Ray couldn't quite manage a quality start in Wednesday night's loss to the Dodgers, tossing six innings of four-run ball.

Ray struck out six and walked two in the contest. Three of the four runs against him scored in the third inning, when he allowed a pair of RBI doubles and an RBI single. With the loss, the 23-year-old southpaw dropped to 2-4 on the season. Despite Wednesday's relatively unimpressive performance against the Dodgers, Ray's pitched well since returning to the Snakes' starting rotation on June 5 and currently holds a 2.55 ERA and 1.05 WHIP. He'll try to rebound when he faces the Rangers in his next scheduled start.
Jul 2 - 12:47 AM

Vincent Velasquez pitched 6 1/3 innings and allowed four runs Wednesday against the Royals.

Velasquez bounced back nicely from giving up three runs in the first two innings, with the only other run scoring after he exited in the seventh. He struck out seven and walked one. While he didn't factor into the decision despite leaving with the lead, he certainly earned another start with the performance.
Jul 2 - 12:44 AM

Edinson Volquez yielded five runs in five innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Astros.

Volquez struck out eight and walked just one while aiming for his fifth straight win tonight, but he was undone by a couple of homers. It's the first time all year that he's allowed five earned runs.
Jul 2 - 12:36 AM

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said he's not optimistic George Springer (wrist) will be able to avoid the disabled list.

Hinch told reporters Springer's wrist is "causing great concern" with the club. Springer was hit on the right wrist by an Edinson Volquez pitch in Wednesday's win. He'll surely undergo X-rays before the team's next game on Friday, so the team should have a clearer picture of his prognosis prior to that contest.
