Michael Foltynewicz surrendered two runs in 6 2/3 innings and struck out eight versus the Giants on Friday.

Folty has turned in two really nice starts in a row, and he's walked a total of three batters in his last three outings after issuing 10 free passes in his first three. We wouldn't count on the walk rate staying so low, but if it does, he could quickly become a force to be reckoned with. Most likely, more inconsistency is on the way.

Taijuan Walker allowed just two hits over eight scoreless innings Friday in defeat the Indians.

We give up. Walker is simply inscrutable. He struck out eight and walked none in this one after entering the day with a 39/23 K/BB ratio in 43 innings. The win was just his second to go along with five losses, and even after the gem, his ERA stands at 6.18. The talent is certainly there to produce more outings like this, but who knows what might materialize next?

Fernando Rodney recorded his 14th save despite giving up a run in the ninth Friday against the Indians.

Rodney surrendered an RBI triple to Ryan Raburn before getting Michael Brantley to fly out to end the game. Just nine of his 21 pitches were strikes. Lloyd McClendon has been stubbornly patient with him, but this can't be allowed to go on for more longer. Rodney has allowed runs in seven of 10 appearances this month.
May 30 - 1:50 AM

Trevor Bauer allowed two runs over seven innings and struck out 10 against the Mariners on Friday.

Bauer has pitched at least seven innings in four starts starts, giving up five runs over 29 1/3 innings during that span. He did take the loss tonight, but his ERA is down to 2.97.
May 30 - 1:48 AM

Batting cleanup for the first time this season, Seth Smith homered and walked against the Indians on Friday.

The Mariners hit Nelson Cruz third tonight with Robinson Cano sitting again, leaving Smith to hit cleanup. Even though it worked, we wouldn't expect Smith to remain there Saturday.
May 30 - 1:46 AM

Sonny Gray pitched eight innings of two-run ball to beat the Yankees on Friday.

It's the ninth time in 11 starts this season that Gray has allowed two runs or fewer. He's looking like a legitimate AL Cy Young contender with his 6-2 record and 1.82 ERA.
May 30 - 1:44 AM

Brett Lawrie hit his fourth homer Friday in the win over the Yankees.

Lawrie is batting .296 in May after coming in at .229 in April. Still, we'd be more encouraged if it didn't come with a 27/3 K/BB ratio. Incidentally, that's identical to his mark from April. He actually has a 44/2 K/BB ratio against righties and a 10/4 K/BB ratio versus lefties.
May 30 - 1:43 AM

Brian McCann homered in a fourth straight start Friday against the Athletics.

The incredible thing is that the last two homers have come in road games in Oakland. Prior to Thursday, 25 of his 29 homers as a Yankee had come in the Bronx.
