Steven Matz allowed seven runs - three earned - and five hits with two walks and three strikeouts over 3 1/3 innings in a loss at St. Louis on Wednesday.

Matz was the victim of three errors, including his own throwing error. He also struggled with his location, tossing just 53 of his 86 pitches for strikes in the ugly outing. He has failed to last longer than 5 1/3 innings in any of his five outings this season, walking at least two batters in four of his five starts this season. He'll need to get a handle on his problem with walks before he is to be used outside of the deepest NL-only fantasy leagues.

Cesar Hernandez set the table for the Phillies by going 3-for-4 and scoring two runs in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

He doubled and scored in the first inning, then singled and scored in the third inning. He was also caught stealing in the ballgame. His sterling performance is one of the primary reasons why the Phillies have gotten off to a surprising 15-8 start this year. He has a .313/.431/.434 slash line with two homers, 10 RBI, 18 runs and five steals out of the leadoff slot. He has nearly as many walks (18) as strikeouts (22) in 102 plate appearances.
Apr 26 - 1:12 AM

Aaron Altherr played hero by launching a go-ahead three-run homer against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Zack Greinke was rolling to a victory when Altherr put a stop to that in a hurry. The sixth-inning blast came with Carlos Santana and Odubel Herrera along for the ride. Altherr has an atrocious .172 batting average, although he has provided some fantasy value with three homers and 15 RBI in 21 games. The 27-year-old has flashed star potential for brief periods in the past but has yet to maintain it for long enough to become a fantasy asset.
Apr 26 - 1:05 AM

Joey Gallo matched a career high with three hits in three at-bats with a walk and a run scored in Wednesday's 4-2 win against the Athletics.

All of Gallo's hits were singles, including a bunt against the shift. He was able to bump up his average from .204 to .229 with the three-hit game. Gallo is still a liability to fantasy owners in the batting average department despite the three-hit game, but it has been nice to see him developing a more discerning eye lately. Since April 17 he has a walk in seven of his past eight games, and he has struck out just once over his past five outings.
Apr 26 - 1:03 AM

Hector Neris walked two batters in the ninth inning but slammed the door to earn a save against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

He was protecting a two-run lead and it looked like he might blow it. He put the potential tying runs on base via free passes but got out of the jam with two strikeouts and a fly ball to center field to end the game. Neris now has five saves, a 3.60 ERA and a firm grip on the closer's job in Philadelphia.
Apr 26 - 12:59 AM

Keone Kela worked a perfect ninth inning with two strikeouts for his fourth save of the season Wednesday against the A's.

Kela has been clean in eight of his nine appearances, allowing three earned runs April 20 in a non-save situation for his only ugly outing of the season. He has converted all four of his save chances and he is a dependable closer in AL-only and deeper mixed fantasy play.
Apr 26 - 12:58 AM

Doug Fister allowed two earned runs, four hits and three walks with three strikeouts over 4 2/3 innings in a no-decision Wednesday against the Athletics.

Fister was making his first start since April 9 due to a strained right hip. He had a season high in pitches at 105, so it was good he didn't have any restrictions in his return from the 10-day disabled list. However, he was shaky and will need to cut down on his free passes if he wants to go deeper into games. His next scheduled start is set for Wednesday in Cleveland opposite Corey Kluber.
Apr 26 - 12:55 AM

Jake Arrietta allowed three runs -- one earned -- in seven innings and collected a win against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

The Phillies made three errors behind him but Arrieta stayed poised and held it together like a veteran should. He scattered four hits and two walks while notching just two strikeouts. He walked in one run and allowed two more on a pair of sacrifice flies. He moves to 3-0 with a stellar 1.82 ERA in his first season with his new club.
