Nicholas Castellanos went 3-for-4 and drove in two runs in a loss to the Royals on Sunday.

One of the three hits was a double for Castellanos, and he also scored a run in the loss. It's been a strong start to the 2018 season for 26-year-old outfielder, and he now owns a .309/.364/457 line to show for it. There aren't many Detroit players worth fantasy consideration. Castellanos is one of them.

Whit Merrifield hit a solo homer in a victory over the Tigers on Sunday.

Merrifield's homer was the first run -- and hit -- off of Francisco Liriano, and the floodgates opened shortly after. After a slow start to the year, the Kansas City leadoff hitter now has three homers on the season, and his OPS is up to a much more respectable .755. Expect these numbers to continue to go up, and for him to start running more in the process.
Apr 22 - 4:49 PM

Kelvin Herrera pitched a clean ninth inning to earn his fourth save of the season on Sunday against the Tigers.

Herrera struck out one, and still hasn't allowed an earned run this year. He also hasn't walked anyone while striking out nine over his first 6 2/3 innings of the season. Herrera could become a valuable trade chip for the Royals near the deadline, but for now, he should earn the save opportunities, and he's making the most of them to start 2018.
Apr 22 - 4:44 PM

Francisco Liriano gave up three runs in 5 1/3 innings in a no decision against the Royals on Sunday.

Liriano cruised through the first five innings, striking out six and allowing no hits through those first five. Things quickly went downhill in the sixth, as he gave up a solo shot to Whit Merrifield to open the season, and two more runs came in. The southpaw still owns a solid 3.13 ERA for his efforts on the year, and he's at least earned the right to stay in the Detroit rotation for the foreseeable future. His next start will come on Saturday against Baltimore, and you might want to look elsewhere considering how right-handed the Orioles' lineup is.
Apr 22 - 4:41 PM

Eric Skoglund gave up four runs over five innings in a no decision on Sunday against the Tigers.

Skoglund gave up four hits, walked two and struck out three. The southpaw has now had three straight starts with similar lines, and he owns a rather unhealthy 8.59 ERA in response. His next scheduled start will come on Saturday against the White Sox in Chicago.
Apr 22 - 4:37 PM

Mike Moustakas hit a go-ahead three-run homer in the seventh to help the Royals beat the Tigers 8-5 on Sunday.

The homer came off of Buck Farmer, and it broke a 5-5 tie in the bottom of the seventh. He now has six homers on the season, and he's slugging a robust .612 mark on his 2018 campaign. In what is clearly a rebuilding year for the Royals, we should start hearing trade rumors about Moustakas soon. It won't matter where he's playing if he keeps hitting like this in terms of his fantasy value.
Apr 22 - 4:34 PM

Andrew Miller pitched a scoreless eighth inning and struck out two in the Indians' victory over the Orioles on Sunday.

Miller now has three holds on the season. He's allowed five hits on the year, and he's struck out 16 over his 9 1/3 innings. Even without saves, Miller has fantasy relevance because of his ability to miss bats and keep hitters off the bases. There aren't many better relievers in baseball.
Apr 22 - 4:29 PM

Manny Machado homered twice in a 7-3 loss to the Indians on Sunday.

Both homer came off of Corey Kluber, and Machado now has eight on the season. The Orioles aren't very good, but Machado is. He now has a .356/.434/.713 line to begin his 2018 campaign. We wonder when we'll start hearing the trade rumors for the 25-year-old shortstop, as it's pretty clear that Baltimore isn't going to contend in Machado's last year under contract.
