Mike Trout went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's 8-1 loss against the Giants.

The Angels forgot their hitting shoes in the clubhouse, as they were only able to account for five total hits. Trout was the only player to do anything, reaching base three times. He is now up to seven homers with 14 RBI to lead the Halos in both categories. He'll look to stay hot against LHP Derek Holland, a pitcher he knows well from Holland's days in Texas. Trout is 14-for-45 (.311) with three doubles, a triple, three homers and 12 RBI with a 1.011 OPS in his career against the lefty.

Brandon Finnegan surrendered four runs in three innings during Friday's loss to the Cardinals.

He needs a new opponent. Both of his starts this year have been against the Cardinals and they have knocked him around each time. He couldn't throw strikes in this one, walking four batters against two strikeouts in the contest. The left-hander missed the first three weeks of the season with a biceps injury. He falls to 0-2 with an 11.05 ERA in 7 1/3 innings. Perhaps the Reds' new interim manager Jim Riggleman will re-assign Finnegan into a new role until he proves he is ready to start again.
Apr 21 - 1:48 AM

Andrew Heaney yielded seven earned runs, six hits and two walks with six strikeouts over 4 1/3 innings in a loss against the Giants on Friday.

Heaney tossed just 46 of his 76 pitches for strikes, slipping to 0-1 with a 9.64 ERA in his two outings this season. Like his first outing, he really had just one poor inning. But this time it was really poor. Heaney allowed the first five batters to reach in the fifth, including a two-run homer to Mac Williamson. Andrew McCutchen ended his night with a three-run shot. His next start is likely to come early next week against the Orioles, although the exact order is uncertain with Shohei Ohtani (blister) battling an injury on his pitching hand.

Jhoulys Chacin rattled off six shutout innings during an 8-0 victory over the Marlins on Friday.

He scattered four singles and three walks while notching five strikeouts in the gem outing. It was his first win in a Brewers uniform. He will take a 4.18 ERA and 1.73 WHIP into a much tougher start against the Cubs at Wrigley Field on Thursday.
Apr 21 - 1:41 AM

Nick Hundley ended up 2-for-3 with a double, a solo home run and a walk with two runs scored and two RBI in Friday's road win against the Angels.

It was Hundley's first two extra-base hits of the 2018 campaign, so don't get terribly excited about his fantasy prospects. While he is one of the better backup hitting backstops in the majors, his fantasy appeal is still rather low unless something happens to force Buster Posey out for a long period.
Apr 21 - 1:40 AM

Mac Williamson went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's game against the Angels.

Williamson was just recalled from Triple-A Fresno to replace the injured Hunter Pence (thumb), and he did a great job. He simply carried over the momentum from his time with the Grizzlies, as he was slashing .487/.600/1.026 down on the farm before getting the call to the big club. Despite the ridiculous numbers at Triple-A, and the homer on Friday, he is still only worth in deeper NL-only leagues at the moment.
Apr 21 - 1:38 AM

Ryan Braun went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer and two runs scored in Friday's thumping of the Marlins.

His blast off Trevor Richards with Christian Yelich along for the ride broke the game open in the fourth inning. Braun has been battling a calf injury lately but this was his second game in a row with a longball. He has a lowly .230 batting average that is sure to rise, along with five home runs and 13 RBI.
Apr 21 - 1:36 AM

Andrew McCutchen swatted a three-run homer in Friday's road victory against the Angels.

Cutch is still hitting just .213 as he is struggling a bit to adjust to his new surroundings. However, he is slowly starting to piece things together. He has hit safely in a season-high three games. That isn't much, but it's a start. He'll look to keep it going Saturday against RHP Garrett Richards, a pitcher he has never faced.
