Cole Hamels dropped to 1-4 after allowing two runs in 6 1/3 innings Tuesday against the A's.

Hamels allowed two runs or fewer for the third time in six starts. His stuff has degraded, so at this point, two runs for six innings is about the best anyone should hope for when he starts. He can keep his team in games, but with such a mediocre team around him, it's not going to get him many wins.

Ronald Guzman went 0-for-4 on Tuesday and is 6-for-33 with 11 strikeouts since his callup.

Guzman was likely to have a little while longer anyway, but especially in light of Adrian Beltre's injury tonight, he'll keep serving as the Rangers' primary first baseman. If he's still struggling 10 days from now, perhaps a change could come.

Alex Avila went 3-for-4 and hit his second homer in the Diamondbacks' 8-4 victory over the Phillies on Tuesday.

Avila finally came through offensively after opening the season 4-for-35 with one homer and two RBI in 12 games. He'll likely be decent offensively the rest of the way, but he's not going to get as much playing time as most "starting" catchers and he's also an injury risk.

Robbie Ray fanned 11 but came up short of a win after allowing three runs in 4 2/3 innings Tuesday against the Phillies.

Ray threw 107 pitches to get his 14 outs. He walked three and gave up five runs, though just one of those went for extra bases. Ray has always at least three in all five of his starts to date, which is why he's yet to last longer than six innings, which is why he's stuck on two wins even though the Diamondbacks have won four of his five outings.
Apr 24 - 11:14 PM

Vince Velasquez surrendered four runs through 4 2/3 innings Tuesday in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

That ends a stretch of three straight quality starts. Velasquez gave up two homers tonight after allowing just one in his first four starts. He's really just a streaming option in mixed leagues at the moment.

Adrian Beltre has been diagnosed with a left hamstring strain.

Beltre will be reevaluated Wednesday, but this has disabled list written all over it. The veteran third baseman suffered the hamstring strain while running down the first base line on an RBI single in the eighth inning of Tuesday night's game against the Athletics.
Apr 24 - 11:11 PM

Jarrod Dyson hit his first homer and walked twice Tuesday against the Phillies.

With a .173 average and only a couple of steals, Dyson hasn't taken sufficient advantage of Steven Souza's absence in the early going. He'll get better, but he'll also get less playing time once Souza is back.

Tyler Mahle took a no-hitter into the seventh inning and struck out a career-high 11 batters in Tuesday’s 9-7 extra-innings win over the Braves.

Mahle pumped it up to 97-98 mph in the sixth inning as he looked to preserve his no-hitter. As it turns out, it appeared that he might have emptied the tank that frame. The Braves went home run, double, home run to kick off the seventh inning to run the no-no and shutout and knock Mahle out of the game. He then lost out on a win when Raisel Iglesias blew a save. Still, the rough finish doesn’t diminish what was a dominating showing from the young right-hander. Mahle was already at nearly a strikeout per inning coming into this one even though he had a 5.14 ERA, but obviously he took it to another level Tuesday. His arrow is pointing up as he takes on the Twins in Minnesota on Sunday.
