David Hess fired 6 2/3 scoreless innings in a 2-0 victory over the Rays on Friday.

Hess scattered four hits while walking three and striking out three. It wasn’t exactly the most imposing lineup, but Hess has now delivered two quality starts in his first three tries in the majors. He should continue to get chances with the Orioles, though he’s a risky play mixed fantasy leagues.

Ryan Yarbrough allowed one run over seven innings in relief Friday against the Orioles.

Sergio Romo started the game, but he was pulled in the first inning after giving up an RBI double to Danny Valencia. Yarbrough was great after taking over, notching eight strikeouts and no walks while giving up seven hits. The only run scored on a solo homer from Jonathan Schoop in the sixth. The outing tied the franchise record the longest relief appearance, joining Rob Bell (2004) and Carlos Reyes (2003). Yarbrough has now allowed three earned runs combined over his last three appearances (totaling 18 1/3 innings), lowering his ERA to 3.21 for the year. The Rays may continue to use their pitchers in unconventional ways, but Yarbrough is gaining some momentum in fantasy leagues.

Brad Brach delivered a scoreless ninth inning against the Rays on Friday for his eighth save of the season.

Brach got into some trouble by giving up back-to-back one-out singles to Matt Duffy and Mallex Smith, but he got Daniel Robertson to fly out and Johnny Field to foul out to end it. Since taking a loss against the Athletics on May 4, he’s notched seven straight scoreless appearances. Zach Britton (Achilles) is on track to begin a rehab assignment next week, so Brach likely still has a couple of weeks remaining as the fill-in closer.

Adam Jones went 3-for-4 with three singles and a run scored Friday against the Rays.

That gives him back-to-back three-hit games. His batting average has jumped from .263 to .279 in the process. Jones has amassed nine homers and 25 RBI through 50 games, so he’s on pace for the sort of numbers we’ve been accustomed to seeing from him.
May 25 - 10:38 PM

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in Friday’s victory over the Rays.

Schoop’s sixth-inning blast provided a valuable insurance run for Baltimore. It has been a rough start to the year for the 26-year-old. In addition to missing time with an oblique injury, he’s batting just .242/.273/.402 with five homers through 31 games. On the bright side, he has two multi-hit games in his last three. His plate discipline has regressed so far this year, but things should get better from here.
May 25 - 10:38 PM

Danny Valencia knocked in a run with a double as part of a win over the Rays on Friday.

Valencia gave the Orioles the early lead against Sergio Romo in the first inning. It turned out to be his only hit of the ballgame. The 33-year-old has quietly been very good this month, batting .333 (15-for-45) with two homers and eight RBI. Still, he’s more of an option in fantasy leagues which allow for daily lineup changes.

Carlos Santana clubbed his ninth home run of the season as the Phillies fell to the Blue Jays on Friday night.

Santana also drew a walk in the ballgame, finishing the night 1-for-3. His two-run blast off of Blue Jays' starter Sam Gaviglio pulled the Phillies to within three runs at 6-3 in the sixth inning. He's now hitting .205/.329/.439 with nine long balls and 32 RBI on the year. He's still best deployed in leagues that utilize on-base percentage rather than batting average, as he continues to be a serious drain in that category.
May 25 - 10:28 PM

Zach Eflin struggled in Friday's loss to the Blue Jays, surrendering six runs (five earned) on nine hits over his 4 2/3 innings.

On the plus side, he did manage to strike out seven on the night while walking only one. He also chipped in offensively, clubbing his first big league home run. The Blue Jays jumped on him for three runs in the first inning, then finished the job with three more to chase him in the fifth, two of those on a mighty blast by Justin Smoak. Eflin now sits at 1-1 on the season with a 3.27 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 24/7 K/BB ratio in 22 innings on the season. He'll take on the Dodgers his next time out in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
