Garrett Richards (fatigue) will see a doctor.

Richards was battling with signs of dehydration this past weekend and MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez relayed earlier on Wednesday that hard-throwing right-hander "seems questionable" for his scheduled start on Friday. Richards, himself, indicated that he was still feeling fatigued and did not know whether he would be able to toe the rubber on schedule.

Daniel Murphy finished 4-for-5 with three RBI in the Nationals' 13-2 rout of the Royals on Wednesday.

Murphy hit a two-run double -- his 10th double of the year -- in the Nationals' six-run first inning, singled and scored in the Nats' four-run third inning, slugged a solo shot in the fourth inning, and then singled again for good measure in the sixth. Murphy has ridden his remarkable 2015 postseason into a fantastic opening month of 2016, now with a .398/.449/.663 batting line, four homers, 17 RBI, and 17 runs scored in 26 games.
May 4 - 5:43 PM

Stephen Strasburg moved to 5-0 on Wednesday after limiting the Royals to two runs in six innings.

Strasburg got a six-spot from his offense in the top of the first inning and went into cruise control from there, scattering two runs and five hits over his six frames. He issued just one walk and struck out seven. The right-hander is off to a terrific start in his big contract year. A home start against the Tigers is next.
May 4 - 5:31 PM

Kris Medlen was crushed for nine runs -- six earned -- over two-plus innings Wednesday in a loss to the Nationals.

Washington pounced for six runs in the top of the first inning and four more in the third, eventually winning 13-2 in the matinee at Kauffman Stadium. The ugly, ugly loss pushes Medlen's record to 1-3 and his ERA to 6.85. He simply needs to be better next week at Yankee Stadium.
May 4 - 5:28 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said that early June would be the "best-case scenario" for Scott Van Slyke's return to action from a back injury.

Van Slyke has been doing exercises to strengthen his core, but he has yet to resume baseball activity. He hit the disabled list in early April with lower back tightness. The 29-year-old outfielder is a strong option against southpaw pitching when he is healthy. Once he has been cleared for baseball activities, we should have a more concrete idea of his recovery timetable.
May 4 - 5:28 PM

Bryce Harper slugged his 10th home run of the season on Wednesday afternoon against the Royals.

Harper opened the game's scoring in the top of the first inning with an RBI single to center field, kicking off a six-run frame for the visiting Nats. The 2015 National League MVP then went deep off Dillon Gee for a solo shot in the top of the fifth inning. He's sporting a 1.021 OPS on the season, even after wading through a mini slump last week.
May 4 - 5:25 PM

Joe Smith earned his second save of the season Wednesday in the Angels' 7-3 defeat of the Brewers.

Smith worked both the eighth and ninth Wednesday afternoon in Milwaukee, yielding just one hit and striking out two. He carries huge fantasy potential while Huston Street (oblique) is out, and Street could be out a while.
May 4 - 5:20 PM

Hector Santiago yielded three earned runs over 5 1/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision in Milwaukee.

It could have been worse, as Santiago walked four and gave up eight hits. He also struggled in his last start Friday in Arlington, Texas, and he will face an unfamiliar foe next time out in the Cardinals. But the 28-year-old lefty has a strong 3.58 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 32/13 K/BB ratio in 37 2/3 total innings this season and remains a must-start in standard leagues.
