Kyle Schwarber went 2-for-4 with a homer on Sunday in a victory over the Reds.

Schwarber's blast gives him eight on the season, and it came off of Tyler Mahle with a runner on in the second inning. Schwarber isn't hitting for average (.248 so far in 2018), but he's getting on base at a .382 clip, and his .496 slugging percentage is solid as well.
May 20 - 4:24 PM

Javier Baez went 3-for-4 with a homer on Sunday in a win over the Reds.

The homer is the 11th of the season for Baez, and it was a solo shot off of Tyler Mahle in the second inning. The dynamic second baseman has certainly hit for power this year as seen in that number and his .565 slugging percentage, but his .268 average and .299 on-base percentage leave a lot to be desired. Expect more hits to drop for the 26-year-old, and don't expect a huge drop off in power. He's very talented.

Tyler Mahle allowed four runs on seven hits with six strikeouts in six innings in a loss to the Cubs on Sunday.

It was the longball that doomed Mahle in this one, which is unfortunately become a recurring theme for the right-hander in the 2018 season. He allowed three against the Cubs on Sunday, and that brings his total up to 13 on the season. The 23-year-old right-hander has excellent stuff as seen in his 52 strikeouts in 52 ⅓ innings, but the location of that stuff still needs work. He’s a dangerous proposition when he faces the Rockies in Colorado on Saturday.
May 20 - 4:16 PM

Yu Darvish allowed just one run on two hits while striking out seven in a 6-1 win over the Reds on Sunday.

Darvish struggled out of the gate with his command, and it didn’t look like it would be a long outing for the right-hander after he allowed a run in a laboring first. He didn’t give up a run for the rest of the game, and he kept the Cincinnati lineup off balance all afternoon. The strong start lowers Darvish’s ERA to 4.95, and the seven strikeouts give him 49 in 40 innings. He’ll be back on the bump on Sunday against the Giants.
May 20 - 4:15 PM

Jarrod Dyson went 3-for-4 and scored a run against the Mets in a loss on Sunday.

The three hits were nice, but we selfishly would have liked the speedy Dyson to have a steal to go along with a run. We'll take the three hits, however, as it raises the former Royal and Mariners average to .204 with a .615 OPS over his first 37 games in the Arizona organization.
May 20 - 4:12 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera hit a pinch-hit two-run homer in a victory over the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Cabrera came off the bench in the seventh inning, and he blasted a two-run shot off of Jorge De La Rosa to give the Mets their final cushion. It's the seventh homer of the season for the infielder to go along with 26 RBI, and his season line is now up to .321/.368/.547 in 41 games.
May 20 - 4:10 PM

Robert Gsellman earned his first save of his career by firing 1 2/3 scoreless innings on Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

Gsellman didn't allow a runner, and he also struck out three against the Arizona lineup. The former starting pitcher has been excellent in relief for the Mets in 2018, and he hasn't allowed an earned run over his last five appearances out of the bullpen. Don't be too surprised if Gsellman gets a few more save opportunities as the season progresses.
May 20 - 4:07 PM

Clay Buchholz gave up one run over five innings in a no decision against the Mets on Sunday.

It was the first start for Buchholz since April 11 when he faced the Mets while a member of the Phillies organization. The right-hander wasn’t overpowering, but he was effective; allowing just two hits and one walk in the outing. The question now is if we’ll see Buchholz back on the mound again anytime soon. He might have earned another start after this effort, but his inability to miss bats makes him fantasy irrelevant either way.
