Jose Bautista (shoulder) is hoping to be available to play the outfield in one week.

The Blue Jays will be in Washington that night and not have the designated hitter spot available. Bautista sat out his second straight game Monday after receiving a cortisone shot, but he could feel well enough to be back in there on Tuesday.
May 25 - 4:46 PM

Nathan Eovaldi delivered seven innings of one-run ball Monday in the Yankees' rout of the Royals.

Eovaldi was staked to an eight-run lead after the bottom of the first and an 11-run lead after the bottom of the second, so he went into cruise control against the visiting Royals. Kansas City racked up eight hits, but Eovaldi walked just one and limited the Royals' scoring to a Jarrod Dyson RBI single in the top of the fifth. Eovaldi is now 4-1 with a 4.27 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, and 40/14 K/BB ratio in 52 2/3 innings this season for New York. The hard-throwing 25-year-old right-hander carries some breakout potential.
May 25 - 4:42 PM

Steve Pearce hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the seventh to help the Orioles beat the Astros 4-3 on Monday.

Pearce has just nine hits this month, but at least three of them have been homers, and since one was a grand slam, he has driven in 10 runs. There's still plenty of room for him to reemerge as a full-time player for the Orioles if he can get hot. Really, though, he's struggled just to tread water all season.
May 25 - 4:40 PM

Greg Holland gave up two earned runs and recorded only one out Monday in an appearance at Yankee Stadium.

Holland walked two and gave up a Slade Heathcott home run in the outing, showing diminished velocity and poor command. It was his first time pitching in a game since May 14, and he obviously didn't look sharp. Wade Davis was already a must-own in all mixed fantasy leagues, and his value continues to shoot up.
May 25 - 4:38 PM

Dallas Keuchel took a complete-game loss after giving up four runs in eight innings Monday against the Orioles.

Keuchel gave up a pair of two-run homers today after allowing just one bomb in his first nine starts. Obviously, he was strong otherwise, which is why he got to finish the game, but the Astros couldn't bail him out in the 4-3 loss. It was his first defeat after six wins this year. Keuchel's ERA rose from 1.67 to 1.98.
May 25 - 4:37 PM

Jeremy Guthrie was obliterated for 11 earned runs in one official inning of work Monday by the Yankees.

Chase Headley, Brian McCann, and Brett Gardner all went deep in the bottom of the first inning and then Stephen Drew's three-run shot with no outs in the second finally drove Guthrie from the game. He entered the afternoon outing with a 4.75 ERA and watched it rise all the way up to 6.70. Guthrie is not a fantasy starter.
May 25 - 4:36 PM

Alejandro De Aza went 0-for-3 from the ninth spot in the Orioles order on Monday.

De Aza is just 8-for-42 in May (.190), bringing his overall average down to .216. He's already lost some playing time against right-handers, and it looks like he's in position to lose more to David Lough and Travis Snider.
May 25 - 4:35 PM

Batting leadoff again, George Springer went 3-for-5 and hit his seventh homer Monday versus the Orioles.

Springer hit leadoff Sunday with Jose Altuve getting the day off, and since the Astros scored 10 runs, manager A.J. Hinch decided to leave him there today and drop Altuve down to the two hole. Obviously, it went well for Springer, though he did make the final out of the game in the 4-3 loss. In the long run, it's going to make more sense to hit Springer below Altuve.
