Fernando Rodney picked up his fourth save of the year in a 5-2 win over the Dodgers, working around a two-out walk to maintain his perfect 2016 campaign.

Rodney hasn't surrendered an earned run in 8 1/3 innings this year. That's not to say he's been perfect, of course, as he's scattered six hits and four walks, but the 39-year-old is once again shooting arrows into the sky with regularity. It would be nice if the Padres would present him with more save opportunities, though.

Chase Utley went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer, which accounted for the only runs that the Dodgers scored in Saturday's loss to the Padres.

It's been a tough stretch of games for the 37-year-old. He's hitting 2-for-21 (.095) in his last six games, but his crazy-hot start to the campaign means he still boasts a .286/.375/.440 slash line and bats lead-off for the Dodgers. Despite that, he currently ranks outside the top-20 fantasy second basemen and isn't a desirable option outside of deep mixed leagues and standard NL-only leagues. In fact, if Howie Kendrick can find any success whatsoever at the plate, he'll probably start to eat into Utley's playing time as the season progresses.
May 1 - 1:04 AM

Wil Myers enjoyed a big day at the plate in Saturday's win over the Dodgers, going 2-for-3 with two doubles, two walks, an RBI and a stolen base.

Many hoped that a permanent defensive home at first base would allow his hitting talent to finally shine through. After Saturday's banner performance, he's now batting .302/.343/.510 with five doubles, five homers and three stolen bases. His .375 BABIP suggests some regression is in the future; however, he owns a career .322 BABIP, which means any expected drop-off may not be as steep as we'd otherwise assume. He has been a top-five fantasy first baseman and finally appears to be fulfilling his top-prospect pedigree at 25 years old.
May 1 - 12:58 AM

Ross Stripling couldn't escape the fifth inning in Saturday's loss to the Padres, getting rocked for five runs on seven hits and two walks in just 4 2/3 innings.

Stripling announced himself to the baseball world with a near no-hitter in his major-league debut. Since then, he's allowed 12 earned runs in 19 2/3 innings (5.49 ERA) and has lost back-to-back games. The right-hander has done a nice job limiting the home runs, but the Padres combined for four doubles on Saturday, which did more than enough damage. He'll have a tough matchup against the Blue Jays in his next scheduled start.
May 1 - 12:53 AM

Colin Rea picked up a quality start and his second win of the season on Saturday versus the Dodgers, allowing two runs in six innings.

This is realistically what Rea can be at the big-league level, a guy who throws strikes, eats innings and collects quality starts. He'll struggle when he falls behind in counts -- like he did to Chase Utley in the third inning -- but he always seems to be just effective enough. The right-hander has allowed more than three runs in just one outing this year and now owns a 4.61 ERA in 27.1 innings with an unimpressive 22/13 K/BB ratio. He'll next get the red-hot Mets at home.
May 1 - 12:48 AM

Jake McGee continued to walk a tight rope on Saturday, working around two hits to secure his fifth save of the season in a 5-2 victory over the Rockies.

When McGee gave up a lead-off single to Paul Goldschmidt, everyone had flashbacks to his disastrous outing against the Dodgers on April 24. The lefty quickly erased the threat with a double-play ball, but made life hard on himself when Welington Castillo doubled in the next at-bat. Luckily, Nolan Arenado made a nice play on a high chopper to retire David Peralta for the third out. McGee has a 7.04 ERA in 7 2/3 innings with a 3/3 K/BB ratio. He's a low-end closer in fantasy leagues at the moment.
May 1 - 12:25 AM

Trevor Story went 2-for-5 with a double and a triple, driving in three runs in Saturday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Story has his unsightly warts, but he calls Coors home and hits for enough power to potentially be an upper-crust option at the shortstop position. His two-run triple in the ninth proved to be the go-ahead hit for the Rockies. He's now hitting .261/.324/.696 in 21 games and has a combined 17 extra-base hits and 20 RBI. Of course, he has those 37 strikeouts in just 102 PA lurking in the background as a potential ball-and-chain.
May 1 - 12:18 AM

Brandon Drury temporarily tied the game with a two-run homer in the sixth inning against the Rockies on Saturday, but the Diamondbacks ultimately lost it in the ninth.

Drury is hitting .294/.310/.588 with four homers and 10 RBI, and he has now started seven-consecutive games at four different positions. The top-100 prospect is worth adding in deeper leagues, as he's a sneaky power option with second-base eligibility. It's worth noting, though, that he only has one walk in 71 PA. Patience has never been his forte in the minors, and big-league pitchers have a funny way of exploiting that weakness. His leash won't be too long, either, as the Diamondbacks have plenty of good hitters jockeying for playing time.
