David Ross clubbed a solo homer and drew a walk in Thursday’s 7-2 win over the Brewers.

It was his second home run of the season and the 98th of his career. The 39-year-old could see some more playing time with Miguel Montero (back) sidelined, but he’s a poor fit for a significant role at this point in his career. Tim Federowicz was called up from Triple-A Iowa on Thursday, but neither are all that interesting from a fantasy perspective.
Apr 28 - 8:54 PM

Jake Arrieta was no Johnny Vander Meer on Thursday, but he was victorious after holding the Brewers to one run over five innings.

Arrieta needed 92 pitches to get through five innings, allowing three hits and four walks while striking out six. He gave up an RBI double to Alex Presley in the fifth inning to end his home scoreless streak at 52 2/3 innings. That’s the second-longest such streak in MLB history. Arrieta is now 5-0 with a 1.00 ERA and 32/10 K/BB ratio in 36 innings. He’ll get the division rival Pirates next week.
Apr 28 - 8:53 PM

Taylor Jungmann was tagged for five runs on six hits and three walks over 3 2/3 innings Thursday in a loss to the Cubs.

Jungmann also hit Kris Bryant twice as his miserable start to the season continues. The 26-year-old owns a 9.15 ERA and 13/13 K/BB ratio in 20 2/3 innings through five starts. He shouldn’t be anywhere near your fantasy team and might not have a rotation spot for much longer.
Apr 28 - 8:51 PM

Jonathan Villar went 3-for-4 with a walk, three stolen bases, and two runs scored Thursday against the Cubs.

Domingo Santana got the day off Thursday, so Villar made his second start of the season out of the leadoff spot. He took advantage of the opportunity, increasing his batting average from .230 to .262 with his big day at the plate. He was also finally active on the base paths. The 24-year-old entered the day just 2-for-4 in stolen base attempts this season.
Apr 28 - 8:51 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits and three walks over 3 2/3 innings Thursday in his first minor league rehab start with Triple-A Pawtucket.

Rodriguez, who is working his way back from a right patella subluxation, struck out two batters and threw 45 out of 75 pitches for strikes. Coming off the shaky outing, the southpaw still figures to make one or two more starts in the minors before joining the Red Sox. Henry Owens will continue to hold down a rotation spot for now.
Apr 28 - 8:24 PM

Anthony Gose went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer, a double, and two runs scored in Thursday’s 7-3 win over the Athletics.

His fourth-inning blast off Chris Bassitt was his second home run of the season. This was his first multi-hit game since April 13. The speedy 25-year-old is batting just .193/.258/.316 through 18 games and has yet to steal a base. His playing time will likely be in some jeopardy once Cameron Maybin is finally healthy enough to make his season debut.
Apr 28 - 8:20 PM

Francisco Rodriguez notched a one-out save Thursday against the Athletics.

The Tigers were up by five runs to begin the ninth inning, but Blaine Hardy ran into trouble by giving up three hits, including an RBI single. K-Rod entered with two on and two out and got Stephen Vogt to fly out to lock down the victory. The 34-year-old has converted each of his last five save chances since his disastrous season debut, though questions remain about his ability to remain a valuable closer as his velocity continues to decline.
Apr 28 - 8:19 PM

Anibal Sanchez was wild in a win over the Athletics on Thursday, allowing two runs over 5 2/3 innings despite walking seven batters.

The seven walks were the most allowed by Sanchez since September 28, 2009. He also gave up three hits, so he was on the edge of disaster at times, but he minimized the damage by striking out nine batters. The 32-year-old has been really shaky in the early going, posting a 6.08 ERA through five starts. While the strikeouts were nice to see, an outing like this one doesn’t really inspire confidence for fantasy owners.
