Joakim Soria slammed the door on the Royals in the ninth inning on Thursday, protecting a three-run lead to earn his third save of the season.

Soria allowed a leadoff double to Abraham Almonte, but was able to strand him at third without issue. The veteran right-hander has done a nice job so far, compiling a 3.00 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 10/2 K/BB ratio through his first nine innings. He'll continue to have mixed league fantasy value for as long as he holds onto the closer's gig.

Lucas Giolito earned his first victory of the 2018 season on Thursday, limiting the Royals to two runs on five hits over 5 2/3 innings.

The right-hander walked two and struck out two on the night. All of the damage against him came on one mighty swing of the bat from Jorge Soler in the fourth inning. Even with the strong start, the 23-year-old right-hander owns a troublesome 7.71 ERA and 1.71 WHIP on the season and a disastrous 11/21 K/BB ratio. He'll try to build off of this strong effort when he takes on the Cardinals in St. Louis on Wednesday.

Jorge Soler clubbed his second home run of the season as the Royals fell to the White Sox on Thursday.

Soler got the Royals on the board with a two-run blast off of Lucas Giolito in the fourth inning, trimming their deficit to 3-2. He also singled and drew a walk in the ballgame, finishing the night 2-for-3. He has caught fire after a painfully slow start to the season and is now hitting .279/.416/.443 with a pair of homers and four RBI.
Apr 26 - 11:26 PM

Jake Junis was hit hard in Thursday's loss to the White Sox, surrendering six runs on six hits over 5 2/3 innings.

The right-hander struck out five and walked two on the night. His troubles stemmed from his inability to keep the ball in the yard, as he served up five home runs to the White Sox. Even with this rough outing, Junis still owns a stellar 3.34 ERA and 0.87 WHIP through his first five starts. He'll try to get back on track when he takes on the Red Sox in Boston on Tuesday.
Apr 26 - 11:26 PM

Wilson Ramos went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI to help the Rays best the Orioles 9-5 on Thursday.

Ramos took Orioles starter Dylan Bundy deep in the second inning, his second homer in 18 games this year. He also tacked on an RBI single in the third inning for good measure. The backstop started slow out of the gate but has picked things up in recent weeks, going 14-for-39 (.359) since April 9 to raise his overall line to .262/.314/.415.
Apr 26 - 11:24 PM

Adam Jones went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run in Thursday's loss to the Rays.

The O's lost their fifth straight, dropping them to 6-19 overall, but it was by no fault of Jones'. The outfielder hit a two-run shot off Rays starter Chris Archer in the fifth inning, giving him four homers and 15 RBI on the year. He'll need to keep hitting to buoy his triple slash line, as he's walked just twice in 25 games en route to a .267/.275/.457 line.
Apr 26 - 11:15 PM

Mallex Smith went 2-for-3 with an RBI single and a stolen base in Thursday's win over the Orioles.

Smith's speed has never been in doubt, but his ability to hit for average, albeit in a small sample size, is what's been most impressive about his start to the year. The 24-year-old is now hitting .353/.421/.456 in 21 games. His five steals have come in eight attempts -- not a great ratio, but still good for third-most in the AL through Thursday's games.
Apr 26 - 11:11 PM

Danny Valencia went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Rays on Thursday.

Valencia got the start at third base and took Rays reliever Sergio Romo deep for the solo job, his third homer of the year, in the eighth inning. All four of his runs batted in have come by way of the long ball, and the homer account for three of his seven hits in 41 at-bats on the year. That's good for a .171/.277/.439 line, if you're scoring at home.
