Wei-Yin Chen allowed two runs over 5 ⅓ innings in a no decision against the Braves on Sunday.

Chen gave up five hits, and he struck out five Atlanta hitters while walking just one. The 32-year-old left-hander has been much better over his last two starts; as he’s given up just the two runs in 10 innings while striking out eight. He still hasn’t recovered from his struggles in early May, however, as his ERA sits at 6.55 with an ugly 1.64 WHIP. Chen will not be a recommended streaming or DFS option when he faces the Nationals on Saturday.

Julio Teheran gave up six runs over five innings in a no decision vs. the Marlins on Sunday.

It all started off well enough for Teheran with three scoreless innings, but things fell apart for the right-hander when he allowed six runs in the fourth, with four of them scoring on a grand slam by Lewis Brinson. Things have been hot and cold with Teheran in 2018, and this would fall in the latter category as it raises his ERA to 4.17 and his WHIP to to 1.24 on the season. We’ll see him back on the mound on Saturday against Boston.

Jace Fry struck out two Rangers in a perfect ninth inning Sunday, earning his first save of the year.

With Nate Jones having pitched Saturday and the Rangers sending two lefties to the plate in the ninth Sunday, White Sox manager Rick Renteria turned to Fry to close out the game. And he did it convincingly, getting a flyout from Jurickson Profar before striking out Nomar Mazara and Joey Gallo to end it. In 8 1/3 innings since being recalled earlier this month, the 24-year-old has 12 strikeouts without allowing a run. Jones is likely still the first option for saves in the Sox pen, but it's nice to know that Renteria views Fry highly enough to call on him if needed.

Dansby Swanson hit a walk-off two-run single to beat the Marlins 10-9 on Sunday.

The Braves entered the ninth trailing 9-4, and the comeback was completed with a two-run single from Swanson to give Atlanta the victory. It was the only hit of the game for the shortstop, but it's always nice to get run production from your shortstop. On the year, Swanson is hitting .281 with two homers, 16 RBI and a pair of steals over 30 games.

Josh Harrison went 3-for-4 with an RBI in a loss to the Padres on Sunday.

Welcome back, Mr. Harrison. It's the first game for the versatile infielder in over a month, as he's been sidelined since April 15 with a fractured fifth metacarpal in his left hand. He now has a .293/.348/.393 line with a homer and six runs batted in over 15 games.
May 20 - 5:21 PM

Austin Meadows went 3-for-4 with a homer in a loss to the Padres on Sunday.

The homer is the first of Meadows' big-league career, and it came off of Jordan Lyles with a runner on in the sixth inning. Since being called up on Friday, the 23-year-old outfielder has been impressive with a .455 average and .722 slugging percentage, albeit in only three games.
May 20 - 5:18 PM

Leury Garcia went 2-for-4 with a two-run single in a win over the Rangers on Sunday.

After a Welington Castillo solo homer got the Sox on the board, Garcia extended the lead with a two-out, two-run single in the third inning. He's started to come around a bit at the dish in recent days, collecting nine hits in his last 26 at-bats with a homer and a steal sprinkled in. The 27-year-old is hitting .268/.311/.375 in 36 games while appearing at four different positions this year.
May 20 - 5:15 PM

Brad Hand walked two hitters, but pitched a scoreless ninth inning to pick up a save on Sunday against the Pirates.

Hand now has 14 saves on the season, and he's blown only two opportunities in 2018. The left-handed stopper didn't have his best stuff or command, but he was able to escape unscathed against the Pirates lineup. Hand likely won't be on the trade market after signing a three-year extension, but he's still fantasy relevant despite playing for a not-so-good San Diego team because of his reliability.
