Nolan Arenado went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 8-5 victory against the Marlins.

Arenado has been on fire lately, swatting homers in five of the past six games. Now, he'll be tasked with keeping the hot streak alive on the road when the team begins a series in San Francisco on Tuesday. He has twice as many homers (12) at home as he does on the road (6) in a similar number of at-bats. Arenado has hit well against San Francisco pitching this season, going 11-for-30 (.367) with three doubles, a home run and seven RBI.

German Marquez was gashed for six runs - five earned - and nine hits with three walks and six strikeouts over 3 1/3 innings in a loss Sunday against the Marlins.

At least Marquez salvaged the stat line somewhat for fantasy owners with a healthy amount of strikeouts, but he was all over the board in Sunday's series finale. The starter threw just 52 of his 82 pitches for strikes, while Trevor Story didn't help matters by booting a grounder. Marquez managed first-pitch strikes to just 12 of the 24 batters he faced. He'll look to rebound next Saturday on the road against the Dodgers. Marquez is 2-5 with a 7.93 ERA in nine starts at home, but he is 3-3 with a 3.07 ERA in seven starts on the road. Marquez is also 1-0 with a 3.46 ERA in two outings against L.A., and the Dodgers are hitting just .188 against him over 13 innings.

The Yankees are expected to recall catcher Kyle Higashioka from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday.

That would correspond with Gary Sanchez heading to the disabled list, which looks exceedingly likely. The 28-year-old has struggled mightily with the bat at Triple-A this season, slashing a putrid .191/.265/.328 with five homers and 22 RBI. He would provide depth behind Austin Romine while Sanchez is on the shelf.

J.T. Realmuto went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk, two runs scored and an RBI in Sunday's 8-5 victory in Colorado.

Realmuto continues to add to his already impressive stats, although the general public has completely ignored him in All-Star voting. He has the most impressive stats among all catchers in major league baseball, but he isn't even in the Top 5 in voting among NL backstops. Sad.

Kyle Barraclough worked a perfect ninth inning Sunday in Colorado for his seventh save.

Barraclough entered with a three-game lead, but he didn't need the big cushion. He mowed through the Rockies hitters he faced, throwing seven of his 10 pitches for strikes while lowering his ERA to a microscopic 1.05. The Marlins might not win many games, but when he comes in it is lights out. He won't fritter many leads away when he gets the chance for the save.

Derek Dietrich had a big game Sunday in Colorado, finishing 4-for-5 with a double, a home run, two runs scored and two RBI.

Dietrich will wish the Marlins could stay in the rarefied air of Denver a little longer, as he had a homer in each of the three games against the Rockies. He wrapped up the three-game set going 8-for-13 with two doubles, three homers and four RBI. The Fish return home to open a three-game set with the Diamondbacks on Monday night. He is hitting just .277 with four homers and 14 RBI across 119 at-bats at Marlins Park, while posting a .322 average with seven homers and 15 RBI over 143 road at-bats.
Jun 24 - 9:43 PM

Lucas Duda went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored Sunday in Houston.

Duda has hit safely in each of his two games back from the 10-day disabled list, but he has also exhibited a little rust with two strikeouts in both contests. Hunter Dozier is sticking around with the big club, at least for now, so Duda's short-term fantasy outlook is a bit murky at the moment.
Jun 24 - 9:23 PM

Jason Hammel allowed nine runs - seven earned - and six hits with five walks and just three strikeouts over four innings in a loss Sunday in Houston.

Hammel was all over the place with his location, throwing just 52 of his 88 pitches for strikes while getting ahead of batters with just 14 first-pitch strikes to the 25 people he faced. His defense wasn't doing much to help his cause, either, as a catchers interference on Drew Butera and a booted ground ball by Mike Moustakas made things worse. He'll try to rebound next Saturday in Seattle opposite Felix Hernandez.
