Chris Owings went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in his first game back from the disabled list on Saturday.

The stolen base is a good sign that the foot injury that kept him on the DL for six weeks is a thing of the past. He doesn't have much power, so his .284 batting average and his nine stolen bases are the only stats keeping him on the fringe of fantasy usefulness.

Oswaldo Arcia suffered a mild right elbow strain on Saturday night against the Athletics.

Arcia was in obvious pain after a hard swing in the top of the seventh inning. He was 2-for-3 with an RBI in the game and is batting .230/.306/.395 for the year.

Andrew Toles went 3-for-4 with two runs scored in a win over the Cardinals on Saturday.

The multi-hit game was the first for Toles as a major leaguer. The 24-year-old has had a strong start to his big league career, hitting .391/.440/.478 with two doubles and a stolen base in 10 games. He played right field on Saturday, and between Joc Pederson's struggles and Yasiel Puig's ailments, Toles could find more playing time in the weeks ahead.

Max Scherzer struck out 10 batters without walking anybody and held the Padres to two runs in seven innings, but had to settle for a no-decision as the Nationals beat the Padres 3-2 on Saturday.

The only damage was a two-run homer by Ryan Schimpf in the second inning. Scherzer leads the majors with 181 strikeouts and has walked only 35 in 141 2/3 innings. He has a stellar 2.92 ERA. The only thing keeping him from being a fantasy monster is his relatively modest 10-6 record.
Jul 23 - 10:55 PM

Adrian Gonzalez hit his eighth home run of the season in a win over the Cardinals on Saturday.

The homer was the solo variety, hit off Cards starter Mike Leake in the sixth inning. His power outage has been baffling, as Gonzalez has traditionally averaged 22 home runs over his big league career. The 34-year-old is hitting .280/.357/.401 with 47 RBI and 37 runs scored through 95 games.

Edwin Jackson turned in a quality start on Saturday, yielding two runs in six innings but took a no-decision versus the Nationals.

He struck out only one batter and walked three but managed to deliver good results nonetheless. This was his second start since joining the Padres last week after starting the season in the Marlins' bullpen. He has walked more batters than he has struck out this year, which is obviously a harbinger of doom in the long run. He will take his 4.30 ERA into a home matchup with the Reds next week.

Stephen Drew was called upon to pinch hit in the bottom of the ninth inning and stroked a game-winning RBI double as the Nationals won in walk-off fashion on Saturday.

Drew has been relegated to part-time duty this season but has hit well when given the chance. After being one of the game's worst batters the last two years, Drew is hitting .255/.313/.539 this year. He has seven home runs in only 103 at-bats.

Mike Leake allowed 12 hits and seven runs -- six earned -- over six innings in a loss to the Dodgers on Saturday.

It just wasn't Leake's day, as he surrendered four runs in the third inning before giving up three more in the sixth. To his credit, Leake didn't walk a batter while striking out four. It wasn't much of a consolation for the right-hander, who fell to 7-8 with a 4.24 ERA and 1.24 WHIP with the loss. Leake will try to get his record back to even when he faces the Marlins next weekend.
