Roenis Elias continued to pitch well in Monday's win, holding the Rays to a lone run in six innings of work.

It's the third start in a row in which Elias has limited the opposition to exactly one run while pitching at least six innings. He worked around six hits and three walks while striking out six. The only run came on a Logan Forsythe solo home run in the sixth inning. Elias will bring a 2.56 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, and a 31/12 K/BB ratio over 38 2/3 innings into a home start against the Indians over the weekend.
May 25 - 10:14 PM

Jake Odorizzi lost his third straight decision despite yielding only two runs (one earned) in seven innings against the Mariners on Monday.

Odorizzi has notched quality starts in all five May outings, but has lost his last three because the Rays have provided him a grand total of four runs of support. On Monday, he scattered five hits and a pair of walks while striking out seven. Both runs scored in the first inning, thanks in part to a Tim Beckham fielding error. Odorizzi, sporting a fantastic 2.31 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, and 53/12 K/BB ratio over 66 1/3 innings, will try to get back in the win column in Baltimore against the Orioles next.
May 25 - 10:11 PM

Logan Forsythe walked and hit a solo home run, providing the Rays' only run in Monday's loss to the Mariners.

Forsythe put the Rays on the board with a sixth-inning solo shot to left field off of Roenis Elias. The 28-year-old has done a terrific job, batting .299/.374/.487 with five home runs and 21 RBI. He has played mostly at second base in the absence of Nick Franklin and has value in mixed leagues as long as he's hitting the way he is and getting regular at-bats.
May 25 - 10:08 PM

Jose Urena will be recalled from Triple-A New Orleans to make his first major league start against the Pirates on Tuesday.

Urena, 23, has been up to the majors for two relief appearances but this will be his first start. The right-hander has posted a 1.21 ERA and 22/12 K/BB ratio over 37 1/3 innings for New Orleans this season. Urena could get a few starts with the Marlins dealing with multiple injuries in their rotation.
May 25 - 10:07 PM

Mike Zunino went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's win against the Rays.

Zunino padded the Mariners' lead to 4-1 with a ninth-inning solo home run off of Brandon Gomes. He hasn't done much at the plate, batting a meager .185/.244/.379 with six home runs and 14 RBI.
May 25 - 10:05 PM

Robinson Cano had two RBI singles in four at-bats Monday as the Mariners won against the Rays.

Cano plated the Mariners' first run in the first inning, then added insurance in the eighth. The second baseman had gone hitless in three consecutive games. He's still batting a disappointing .253/.295/.337 with one home run and 13 RBI.
May 25 - 10:02 PM

Giancarlo Stanton was the only source of offense for the Marlins, knocking in both runs in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Pirates.

Stanton gave the Marlins a temporary 1-0 lead with an RBI single in the first inning, then reduced their deficit to 3-2 with a third-inning solo home run to right field off of Charlie Morton. The slugger is hitting .234/.323/.509 with 13 home runs and 42 RBI as May nears its conclusion.
May 25 - 9:42 PM

Pedro Alvarez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's victory against the Marlins.

Alvarez provided insurance with a sixth-inning solo homer off of David Phelps, extending the Pirates' lead to 4-2. He has homered in back-to-back starts and has four in his last eight games, giving him nine total on the season along with 21 RBI and a .241/.327/.496 triple-slash line.
