Lance McCullers lasted just five innings but got a win Tuesday, holding the Tigers scoreless in a 6-2 victory.

The only hit McCullers surrendered was a Miguel Cabrera infield single in the fourth inning. However, he walked a pair, hit a batter and struck out five to push his pitch count to 96 and Astros manager A.J. Hinch decided that was enough. He's gone seven frames just twice this season, but McCullers boasts a 2.43 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 65/17 K/BB ratio over 59 1/3 innings. He'll take on the Orioles at home on Sunday.

Jordan Zimmermann allowed four runs -- two earned -- over six frames in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

It was about as ugly as a quality start can get, with Zimmermann only striking out three, walking two and serving up a pair of home runs. Still, he'll take it given that he hadn't posted a quality start since his first start of the season back on April 8. He'll carry a 5.86 ERA into Chicago versus the White Sox on Sunday.

Jake Marisnick went 3-for-4 with an RBI single in Tuesday's win over the Tigers.

Marisnick struck out in his first plate appearance, but he picked up singles in his next three trips to the plate, with the final hit scoring the Astros' last run of the night. He now has two three-hit games in his last three starts and is hitting a surprising .296/.377/.537 on the season. It won't last, but Marisnick has probably earned a few more starts while his bat is hot given his plus glove.

Jesse Hahn has been diagnosed with a right triceps strain.

Hahn suffered the injury in the third inning of his start Tuesday night against the Marlins and departed the game with a trainer. He was charged with five earned runs, lifting his season ERA from 3.02 to 3.81. A trip to the 10-day disabled list is probably coming.
May 23 - 11:35 PM

Juan Centeno hit a solo homer and reached base three times Tuesday versus the Tigers.

The 27-year-old journeyman was making his first start in the majors, as he came up when Brian McCann went on the 7-day concussion DL. Even after the nice night, Centeno might be lucky to get one more start before McCann returns.
May 23 - 11:34 PM

Yulieski Gurriel ripped a solo homer in Tuesday's win over the Tigers.

Gurriel hit a no-doubt, line-drive shot off of Jordan Zimmermann in the second inning that found the Crawford Boxes in a hurry. He also reached on a hit by pitch. It's been a struggle of late for the infielder, as Gurriel has seen his average drop from .293 to .269 over his last six games. Hopefully Tuesday's longball will get him going again.
May 23 - 11:31 PM

Mikie Mahtook smacked a two-run homer Tuesday in Houston.

Mahtook took reliever Michael Feliz deep in the top of the seventh inning to cut the Astros' lead to one at the time, but Houston then pulled away. He's hitting only .200/.259/.380 this season in a part-time role.
May 23 - 11:25 PM

Xander Bogaerts went 3-for-4 with three RBI and four runs scored in the Red Sox's 11-6 win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

Incredibly, Bogaerts still doesn't have a homer this season after hitting 21 last year. What he does have is a .329 average, giving him an .840 OPS even though he's never left the yard. Still, homers would help him out a bunch in the other fantasy categories, particularly in RBI; he's driven in just 15 runs in 40 games this year after coming in at 89 in 157 games in 2016.
