Jason Grilli pitched a perfect ninth inning to pick up his seventh save of the season in Saturday's win over the Phillies.

Grilli struck out Ryan Howard to open the ninth, then induced outs by Cody Asche and Carlos Ruiz to secure the save. The veteran has filled in admirably following the loss of Craig Kimbrel and is now 7-for-7 in saves, with a sparkling 1.59 ERA and 11/2 K/BB ratio over seven innings. If you picked him up on the waiver wire, pat yourself on the back.

David Buchanan allowed just three runs over 6 2/3 innings against the Braves on Saturday, but his team was unable to lend him enough run support for the victory.

Buchanan struck out three and walked three, while surrendering only two hits. He was cruising until a solo Andrelton Simmons homer in the seventh inning broke up the shutout. The other two runs on his line came after Buchanan had already exited the contest. After an awful open to the season (11 runs allowed in his first 8 2/3 innings), Buchanan's now pitched well in back-to-back starts. There's not much fantasy value here, but at least he's no longer bleeding runs left and right. Buchanan will take to the road to face the Cardinals in his next start.

Shelby Miller held the Phillies to two runs over six innings on Saturday, picking up his third win of the season.

Miller struck out three, walked two and allowed three hits. The only blip on the radar came when Ryan Howard hit a two-run home run in the fourth inning. Otherwise, Miller showed a quiet effectiveness over his six innings of work in improving to 3-0, with a 2.05 ERA and 1.09 WHIP across 22 innings. The 25-year-old was pulled with just 71 pitches thrown. If he's able to stay relatively efficient, he'll start to see the later innings soon enough. A home start against the Reds is next on the docket.

Russell Martin hit a go-ahead home run in the seventh inning on Saturday, but it was not enough to secure the win against the Rays.

Martin's solo home run off of Steve Geltz in the seventh inning temporarily gave the Blue Jays a 2-1 lead, but the bullpen was unable to hold it and the Jays eventually lost 4-2. The home run was Martin's third of the season. He also has 10 RBI and 10 runs scored. Over his last 24 at-bats, Martin's hitting .291 and, despite some early struggles, it appears that he's starting to settle in with his new team.

Evan Longoria hit an RBI double and three singles in Saturday's win over the Blue Jays.

With the game knotted at 1-1 in the eighth inning, Longoria singled to right with two outs to start a rally that would ultimately lead to a three-run inning for the home team. Longoria also slapped an RBI double off of Daniel Norris in the first inning. The third baseman came into the contest with a slash-line of just .218/.343/.382, but raised his average to a respectable .270 in just one day's work. Ah the joys of April averages. While Longoria remains a productive hitter in terms of home runs and RBI (especially for his position), he's seen his average, OBP and slugging drop in each of the last three seasons. Hopefully the 4-for-4 effort starts him on a hot streak.

Daniel Norris was incredibly effective on Saturday, limiting the Rays to just one run on five hits in the loss.

Norris struck out seven and walked three in the outing. After surrendering an RBI double to Evan Longoria in the bottom of the first inning, he didn't allow another run. The Blue Jays, and Norris owners, should be thrilled to see him last seven frames, especially given recent health concerns. On Wednesday, he underwent an MRI on his left arm, as the pitcher had been complaining about "dead arm." The MRI didn't turn up anything and after a few days of treatment, Norris certainly looked sharp on Saturday. He now holds a 4.43 ERA and 1.43 WHIP over 20 1/3 innings. The southpaw will take on the Indians in his next start.
Apr 25 - 9:10 PM

Erasmo Ramirez's second start with the Rays was much sharper than his first, as he pitched four innings and allowed just one run against the Blue Jays.

In his first start with the Rays, Ramirez was lit on fire by the Blue Jays to the tune of nine runs (seven earned) in just 3 1/3 innings. In a repeat match-up on Saturday, the Rays pulled Ramirez after just four innings, but the end result was much improved. Ramirez allowed four hits, struck out two and walked one in the contest. The lone run surrendered came via a Josh Donaldson RBI single in the first inning. Ramirez dropped his ERA to 13.94 when all was said and done. If he gets another start, it will come against the Orioles.

Desmond Jennings left Saturday's game with left knee soreness.

Kevin Kiermaier took over for Jennings in center field to begin the eighth inning. Jennings went 1-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts before exiting. He's day-to-day.
