Jon Jay finished 2-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and a strikeout in Wednesday's 5-4 road loss against the Angels.

Jay was hitless over his first 12 at-bats across four games after coming over from the Royals on June 6. It might have taken him a few games to get acclimated to his new surroundings, but now he is good to go. Jay is 15-for-34 (.441) with a double, a home run and six RBI while coming across to score 10 runs over the past eight outings. The buy-low window is still slightly open but will slam shut if he continues at this rate.

Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a pair of walks in Wednesday's 5-4 road loss against the Angels.

Goldschmidt enjoyed his brief stay in Anaheim, and probably wishes it was longer. He belted two homers and four RBI in the short interleague road series, giving him a season-high nine home runs and 20 RBI in 18 games in the month of June. After hitting just .144 in the month of May he is rolling to the tune of a .423 (30-for-71) average in June. He's back, and it's further evidence why you never bench a player of his caliber when healthy.

Matt Koch allowed five earned runs, seven hits and two walks with no strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings in a loss on the road against the Angels on Wednesday.

Koch was a bit wild in this one, throwing first-pitch strikes to 17 of the 27 batters he faced and he was charged with a pair of wild pitches, too. It was his first loss in four decisions dating back to his last setback on May 22. He was due for a stinker. Koch will look to bounce back on Monday night in Miami to kick off a two-start week.
Jun 20 - 1:56 AM

Trevor Story went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two RBI in Wednesday's 10-8 victory against the Mets.

Story continues to roll right along, pushing into the major league lead with 56 RBI. He continues to be super consistent, smacking six homers with 19 RBI in April, five clouts with 20 RBI in May and five long balls with 17 RBI so far in June. The shortstop is showing no signs of slowing down. In fact, he is hitting .370 (25-for-70) for his most successful month at the plate to date.
Jun 20 - 1:49 AM

Nolan Arenado finished 3-for-5 with a double, a two-run home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Wednesday's 10-8 victory against the Mets.

Arenado is starting to heat up again, posting three multi-hit games across his past five appearances. He is 7-for-21 (.333) with four doubles, two homers and eight RBI with six runs scored during the impressive span. Arenado opened the month with just two extra-base hits and three RBI in his first 12 games, but he is making up for lost time lately.
Jun 20 - 1:42 AM

Ian Desmond went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two RBI in Wednesday's 10-8 victory against the Mets.

Desmond entered the month of June with a dismal .196 batting average, but he is working on that area. He is 16-for-58 (.276) with six home runs and 14 RBI in 17 games in June to raise his average to .214. Desmond still has a ways to go before fantasy owners are 100 percent totally confident with his average, but his power production makes the low average sting a little less.
Jun 20 - 1:33 AM

German Marquez allowed four earned runs, six hits and two walks with four strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision Wednesday against the Mets.

Marquez threw 62 of his 95 pitches for strikes in the so-so outing, throwing first-pitch strikes to 13 of the 24 batters he faced while also uncorking a wild pitch. He has been a disaster at home, going 1-4 with a 7.45 ERA across eight outings at Coors Field while posting a 3-3 record and respectable 3.07 ERA in seven starts on the road. Opponents are hitting just .214 against him away from home, too. Unfortunately for his fantasy owners he'll be back home on Sunday against Miami.
Jun 20 - 1:29 AM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tuesday night that Sam Dyson will serve as the team's primary closer for now.

Hunter Strickland broke his right (pitching) hand when he punched a door out of frustration following a blown save Monday against the Marlins and is expected to miss the next 6-8 weeks. Dyson earned the first save in Strickland's absence on Tuesday versus Miami, inducing a game-ending double play from Brian Anderson after Will Smith issued a walk to Yadiel Rivera and struck out Derek Dietrich to begin the top of the ninth inning. Dyson holds an impressive 2.45 ERA and 0.97 WHIP in 33 innings this season. Mark Melancon and Tony Watson also make for good stashes in mixed fantasy leagues in case Dyson can't keep it going.
