Cesar Hernandez went 3-for-4 with a walk and two stolen bases as the Phillies won in 10 innings against the Braves on Sunday.

Hernandez is on a 10-game hitting streak now, with six of those games featuring multiple hits. He singled in the 10th inning to help the Phillies break a scoreless tie. The pair of stolen bases brings him up to 11 in 14 attempts on the season. There's no way his .299/.385/.385 line is sustainable as he has a .556 BABIP since June 22, but he'll get playing time and stolen base opportunities while he's hot so he has fantasy utility for the time being.

Miguel Sano went 2-for-3 with an RBI double and a walk in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

Santana's double in the second inning scored Trevor Plouffe and put the Twins out to a 1-0 lead. The two-bagger was his second of the season, as was the RBI. Since being called up on July 2, the 22-year-old has collected a hit in all four games and is 6-for-15. He hit .274/.374/.544 with 15 homers and 48 RBI over 66 games at Double-A prior to ascending to the majors. We've yet to see the home run power come to play, but Sano has not been overwhelmed by the jump over Triple-A thus far.
Jul 5 - 4:47 PM

Marco Estrada limited the Tigers to two runs in five innings, snagging a win on his birthday as the Blue Jays went on to a 10-5 victory on Sunday.

Not a bad way to celebrate a 32nd birthday. Estrada kept the Tigers off the board until the fifth inning, when Ian Kinsler knocked in two runs with a triple. He allowed five hits overall with a walk and three strikeouts. Estrada has been solid since joining the rotation in early May, sporting a 4.00 ERA with a 56/23 K/BB ratio across 12 starts. He'll make a road start in Kansas City against the Royals next.
Jul 5 - 4:40 PM

Ervin Santana was almost untouchable in Sunday's no-decision against the Royals, striking out eight and allowing just two runs on three hits over eight innings in the team's 3-2 loss.

Given that Santana had been sitting on the restricted list for his use of performance-enhancing drugs over the last 80 games, few could have expected him to come roaring out in mid-season form. That he did, though, that he did. After eight innings, Santana had thrown just 93 pitches. He posted sub-4.00 ERAs in each of his last two seasons and mixed league formats would do well to consider him as a pickup if he's floating out there.
Jul 5 - 4:39 PM

Justin Verlander faltered late in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays, ultimately allowing seven runs in five innings of work.

Verlander had limited the Jays to just one run over his first four innings, but the Jays used a walk, two singles, a double, and two home runs to score six runs in the fifth. Verlander, overall, gave up seven hits, walked two, and struck out five on 94 pitches. The veteran right-hander's results haven't been that impressive in his first four starts of the season, carrying a 6.75 ERA with a 1.59 WHIP and a 12/10 K/BB ratio in 22 2/3 innings. He'll try to turn things around in Minnesota against the Twins.
Jul 5 - 4:37 PM

Cardinals C prospect Cody Stanley lifted his average 25 points with a five-hit effort Saturday for Triple-A Memphis.

He went 5-for-6 with four singles and a double. Saturday was Stanley's first multi-hit game since May 28. His previous career-high in hits was four set August 8, 2014 while playing for Double-A Springfield. Stanley had been just one for his last 17 before Saturday. The 26-year-old made his major league debut earlier this season, singling off Jonathan Broxton for his first big league hit.

Danny Duffy pitched well in earning a Sunday no-decision against the Twins, yielding two runs on five hits 6 1/3 innings.

Duffy struck out one and walked three. Miguel Sano stung him for an RBI double in the second inning and Aaron Hicks took him deep for a solo homer in the next frame, but he otherwise kept the Twinkies off the scoreboard. Duffy missed over a month with biceps tendinitis and since returning to the rotation on June 25, has allowed eight runs in 17 2/3 innings. Overall, he holds a 5.14 ERA and 1.59 WHIP. Up next on the docket, a Friday home start against the Blue Jays.
Jul 5 - 4:36 PM

J.D. Martinez homered again, going 1-for-3 with a walk in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Martinez hit a solo home run in the sixth inning. Thus continues his power surge: he's homered 10 times in his last 12 games. Sunday's blast marked his 23rd of the season, matching his career best set last year. Martinez has also knocked in 56 runs while batting .285/.340/.563.
