Making his first major league start in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers, Daniel Wright surrendered four runs (three earned) on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Wright struck out four and walked just one on the evening. After surrendering a first-inning RBI single to Justin Turner, the 25-year-old right-hander settled in and did not allow another run until the fourth. The Dodgers put up two in that frame and scored once more against Wright in the sixth to polish off the scoring on his line. Tuesday's outing was just fine for a debut, but it remains to be seen whether he will stick in the rotation moving forward. Between Double- and Triple-A, Wright held a sterling 0.79 ERA, 0.64 WHIP and 32/5 K/BB ratio over 34 innings.

Making his second start of the season, Mike Bolsinger allowed two runs on three hits over 5 2/3 innings in Tuesday's win over the Reds.

Bolsinger struck out six and walked one on the evening. Both runs on his line came home courtesy of a two-run home run by Adam Duvall in the fourth inning. The 28-year-old right-hander was optioned to Triple-A following his first start of the season last week and while he pitched just fine in start No. 2, he shouldn't be considered a long-term rotation option for fantasy purposes.

Brandon Crawford went 2-for-3 with a three-run triple and four total RBI in Tuesday's 8-2 win over the Padres.

Crawford notched his first RBI with a single in the sixth inning. He would come through again in much louder fashion in the bottom of the eighth. Stepping to the plate with the bases juiced, the 29-year-old shortstop brought 'em all home with a three-run triple off reliever Keith Hessler to blow open what had been a 3-1 game. For the season, Crawford is slashing .256/.330/.438 with nine doubles, six homers and 26 RBI across 160 at-bats.

Jon Jay - OF - Padres

Jon Jay went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Giants.

Jay stroked a solo home run against Giants starter Jeff Samardzija in the sixth inning. It would be one of just two runs the Padres managed to scratch out on the evening. With a .267/.330/.372 triple-slash over 172 at-bats, the 31-year-old outfielder can be safely ignored for fantasy purposes.
May 25 - 1:17 AM

Jeff Samardzija pitched well in Tuesday's win over the Padres, hurling 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball.

The only blemish on Samardzija's night came in the form of a solo home run by Jon Jay in the sixth inning. Otherwise, smooth sailing for the 31-year-old right-hander. With the win, he improved to 7-2. Next up, a road start against the Braves. Samardzija will carry a 2.54 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 62/16 K/BB ratio over 71 innings into that one.
May 25 - 1:14 AM

Carlos Correa hit an RBI single in the 13th inning to give the Astros a walk-off, 3-2 win over the Orioles on Tuesday.

Correa was 0-for-5 with two strikeouts before delivering the game-winning hit in the 13th. He's been streaky in his first full season in the majors, striking out in a surprising 25.1 percent of his plate appearances while also hitting seven homers with eight steals on the year. It all adds up to a .250/.343/.409 line that should be more attractive by season's end.
May 25 - 1:10 AM

Andrew Cashner pitched respectably in his return from the 15-day disabled list, yielding three runs on four hits over six innings in Tuesday's loss to the Giants.

Cashner, who was shelved with a right hamstring strain in early May, struck out one and walked four in his return to the mound. The Giants would score two of their three runs against the 29-year-old right-hander in the sixth inning, with Buster Posey (RBI double) and Brandon Crawford (RBI single) striking to snap a 1-1 tie. Prior to hitting the disabled list, Cashner held a 4.93 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 28/14 K/BB ratio over 34 2/3 innings. Until he can improve on those bloated numbers, he does not make for an appealing fantasy option outside of the deepest of NL-only formats. He will take to the road for a date with the Mariners next time he toes the rubber.
May 25 - 1:08 AM

Pedro Alvarez hit his third home run of the season Tuesday against the Astros.

Alvarez hit a solo homer off Astros starter Doug Fister in the fifth inning, his only hit in five at-bats. The blast was his first since May 8. Thought to be a potential fantasy sleeper heading into the season after signing with the Orioles in March, the 29-year-old has instead batted .191/.300/.351 with three homers and 10 RBI in 32 games.
