Jameson Taillon was touched up for six runs over six frames in Tuesday’s loss to the Reds.

Taillon struck out eight batters and walked only one, but he gave up eight hits and five of them went for extra bases. The big blow was a grand slam off the bat of Scooter Gennett in the fifth inning. Taillon just can’t seem to put together a good extended stretch, as he’s had dominant outings this season but also a handful of clunkers. He’ll take a disappointing 4.56 ERA into Sunday’s start versus the Cardinals.

Scooter Gennett smashed a grand slam and drove in six runs in the Reds' win over the Pirates on Tuesday.

It's his first grand slam this season after he ripped an improbable four grand slams last year. Gennett also had an RBI double and a sacrifice fly. He's hit six home runs over his last 13 games after clubbing just two homers over his first 34 contests. Gennett was looking droppable after suffering a shoulder injury earlier this month, but his batting line is now up to .324/.358/.528 after his hot streak.

Matt Boyd (oblique) expects to make his next scheduled start.

Boyd left Tuesday night's game against the Twins after feeling some spasming around his left oblique in the bottom of the fifth inning. He tried to talk manager Ron Gardenhire into keeping him in, but Boyd had walked two straight batters (after throwing four scoreless frames to begin the evening) and Gardenhire decided to play it safe. Boyd holds a 3.29 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 41/17 K/BB ratio in 52 innings (nine starts) this season. He's lined up to face the Angels at home next Monday.

Austin Meadows homered in his second straight game Tuesday, hitting a solo shot in a loss to the Reds.

Meadows took reliever Amir Garrett deep in the seventh inning Tuesday after he homered off of Jordan Lyles for his first major league dinger Sunday. He's 6-for-15 at the dish over his first four big league games and has also added a stolen base. Meadows could be sent back down when Starling Marte (oblique) returns from the disabled list, but he'll play regularly at least for the next week or so.

Yolmer Sanchez went 3-for-4 and drove in the go-ahead run on Tuesday as the White Sox battled back to beat the Orioles 3-2.

The White Sox had been shut out through the first seven innings, primarily by Kevin Gausman. Their bats certainly woke up in the eighth though, with Sanchez's run-scoring single putting them ahead to stay. With the three-hit attack, Sanchez is now hitting .288/.322/.423 with two homers, 21 RBI and three stolen bases on the year. He's a worthwhile middle infield option in AL-only leagues and may deserve consideration in deeper mixed leagues as well.

Welington Castillo went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI as the White Sox rallied to beat the Orioles on Tuesday night.

Castillo's RBI single got the White Sox on the board in the eighth inning after Daniel Palka's leadoff triple. The veteran backstop continues to be one of the best offensive options in the league at his position, slashing a healthy .270/.314/.477 with six homers and 15 RBI in his first 118 plate appearances.
May 22 - 11:38 PM

Nate Jones locked down his fourth save of the season on Tuesday, striking out a pair while protecting a one-run lead in a scoreless ninth inning against the Orioles.

Jones made things interesting in this one, allowing a leadoff walk to Chris Davis and a one-out single to Mark Trumbo, but Jones stepped up and got Jace Peterson on a line drive and Chance Sisco on strikes to end the proceedings. He looks to be the best bet for save chances in the White Sox' bullpen at the moment and should be owned and started in nearly all mixed leagues at this point.
May 22 - 11:38 PM

James Shields logged a quality start in a no-decision against the Orioles on Tuesday, allowing two runs on five hits over seven strong innings.

The veteran-right hander struck out five on the evening while issuing a pair of free passes. All of the damage against him came in the second inning, where Mark Trumbo delivered a run-scoring double and Jace Peterson followed with an RBI ground out. The 36-year-old still sits at 1-4 on the season with a 4.62 ERA and 1.27 WHIP through 62 1/3 innings in his 10 starts. He does draw an intriguing matchup his next time out, taking on the Tigers in Detroit on Sunday. In deeper leagues, he could be worth a shot as as streaming option against a depleted Tigers' lineup.
