Pitching while dealing with a virus, Kenley Jansen gave up a run in the ninth on his way to his 18th save Friday.

Jansen's stuff wasn't quite there tonight, but he had just enough to get the job done against the Angels. He might get Saturday off after laboring through 26 pitches in this one, potentially opening up a save chance for J.P. Howell or Pedro Baez.
Aug 1 - 3:19 AM

Alex Guerrero hit his 11th homer Friday in the win over the Angels.

Guerrero had been struggling mightily in his bit role, and the homer was his first since June 2. He's due additional playing time now with Justin Turner on the DL, so maybe he'll go on another role. Mixed leaguers in need of homers could do worse than rotating him in next week.
Aug 1 - 3:15 AM

Mike Trout went 3-for-4 with a homer, a triple and three RBI against the Dodgers on Friday.

The Angels had six hits in the loss, all of them coming from Kole Calhoun and Trout. At least they were hitting back-to-back, so the Angels did manage three rubs. It wasn't enough, though. Trout now has 32 homers in 99 games, leaving him just four shy of last year's career high.
Aug 1 - 3:13 AM

Danny Salazar shut down the A's on Friday, allowing just an unearned run and one hit over eight innings to earn his ninth win.

Salazar didn't have a big strikeout game, finishing with just four, but maybe that will be good for him; he really doesn't need to try to strike out everyone in order to succeed. The potential is still there for him to turn into one of the AL's best starters.
Aug 1 - 3:11 AM

Kendall Graveman limited the Indians to an unearned run over 6 2/3 innings in a no-decision on Friday.

After three straight poor starts, each worse than the last, Graveman turned it around nicely tonight. He allowed five hits, walked two and struck out six. His rotation spot might have been in jeopardy with another poor showing tonight, but he's worth playing in AL-only leagues for as long as the A's stick with him.
Aug 1 - 3:09 AM

Edward Mujica gave up a run in a tie game Friday to take a loss against the Indians.

Mujica is Oakland's closer for now following the Tyler Clippard trade, but he could be part of an August deal if anyone wants him and he could be replaced by Sean Doolittle for the final month if everything goes well with the left-hander's rehab. So, while Mujica has some value in mixed leagues right now, he's not exactly someone to count on.
Aug 1 - 3:06 AM

Lonnie Chisenhall went 3-for-4 with a double and a steal as the Indians' right fielder on Friday.

Chisenhall will get a chance to take some of David Murphy's at-bats, though how much playing he receives will hinge on what happens with Nick Swisher following his return. ideally, Chisenhall would be in there pretty regularly against right-handers the rest of the way before the Indians have to decide whether to tend him a contract for 2016.
Aug 1 - 3:05 AM

Taijuan Walker pitched a one-hitter and struck out 11 as the Mariners beat the Twins 6-1 on Friday.

The lone hit was Miguel Sano's solo homer in the fourth inning. It's Walker's first career complete-game victory (he had one other complete game, but it was an eight-inning loss to the Blue Jays last season). He might be prone to bouts with inconsistency, but he should still be worth riding in mixed leagues the rest of the way.
