Cody Allen picked up his 16th save of the season via a scoreless ninth inning in Saturday's win over the Tigers.

Allen was tasked with holding a 4-1 lead when he entered in the ninth inning. No sweat for the closer, who proceeded to strike out JaCoby Jones and Jose Iglesias before inducing a Dixon Machado flyout to end the game. He finished up throwing 14 pitches (nine strikes). For the campaign as a whole, Allen owns a 3.73 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 38/12 K/BB ratio in 31 1/3 innings. While his ERA is higher than you would like to see for a closer, he's now a crisp 16-of-17 in save chances.

David Peralta went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in a win over the Pirates on Saturday.

He tripled to drive in Paul Goldschmidt in the first inning and ended up scoring on the play when the second baseman threw the ball away. He plated Goldschmidt again in the third inning with an RBI-double. Peralta also walked in the ballgame and is now slashing .278/.342/.502 with 14 home runs and 41 RBI in 69 games. He is an under-appreciated fantasy asset -- not a star but a well-rounded contributor across the board.
Jun 23 - 9:38 PM

Francisco Lindor went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Tigers.

Lindor smacked a solo home run in the fifth inning. That wound up as the final run that either team scored in what finished as a 4-1 win for the Tribe. Lindor is up to 18 home runs on the year and has now gone deep in back-to-back contests. The All Star shortstop is slashing a lovely .291/.369/.542 in 74 games this season. In terms of his counting production, Lindor has driven in 42 runs and stolen 10 bases to go with those 18 taters.
Jun 23 - 9:35 PM

Zack Greinke struck out seven batters while firing six shutout innings to beat the Pirates on Saturday.

He allowed just three baserunners -- two base hits and one hit batsman -- without issuing a base-on-balls in the ballgame. He went 1-for-3 at the plate and scored a run and now has a .703 OPS on the season as a batter. Greinke improves to 7-5 with a 3.66 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 16 starts. He has amassed 102 strikeouts against 19 walks in 96 innings.
Jun 23 - 9:32 PM

JaCoby Jones went 2-for-4 with a run scored and a steal in Saturday's loss to the Indians.

Jones was the only Tiger to pick up multiple knocks in the loss, as the Motor City Kitties were facing a dominant Trevor Bauer on Saturday. He scored his run on a wild pitch from Bauer in the second inning. In 68 games this season, the 26-year-old outfielder is hitting .235/.285/.393 with five home runs, 19 RBI and six steals. He doesn't offer enough of an all-around game to be fantasy relevant in the vast majority of leagues.
Jun 23 - 9:30 PM

Starling Marte went 1-for-4 and stole a base in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

The Pirates couldn't get much going against Zack Greinke and crew in this one. Marte singled with two outs in the first inning and then stole second base but was left stranded. He has a .273 batting average with nine home runs and 34 RBI. He's stolen 14 bases to generate the bulk of his fantasy value.
Jun 23 - 9:28 PM

Elias Diaz went 2-for-3 and scored a run during Saturday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

He singled and scored on a Jordy Mercy knock in the seventh frame but the game was already out of reach by that point. The Pirates' back-up catcher is slashing a fine .297/.345/.475 with five homers and 15 RBI in 101 at-bats this year.
Jun 23 - 9:24 PM

Jeimer Candelario went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Indians.

Oh dear. This four-strikeout showing is indicative enough of how Candelario has been going recently, as he's been embroiled in a 4-for-34 slump over his last 10 games. His batting line has dropped from .258/.347/.498 to .244/.348/.467 in that space.
