Alex Gordon (hip, neck) went 1-for-4 with a single in his return to the lineup Saturday.

Gordon missed a couple games with a sore hip and neck as a result of a diving catch Wednesday. It shouldn't be an issue moving forward.
May 27 - 8:24 AM

Max Kepler went 2-for-5 with an RBI and run scored in a loss to the Mariners on Saturday in extra innings.

Kepler also hit a double, the 15th of the season for the 25-year-old outfielder. With the two hits Kepler's slash line improves to .261/.342/.491, and he has 23 extra-base hits over 47 games -- seven of them homers. This isn't star production, but you can do a lot worse than this.
May 27 - 2:12 AM

Jean Segura went 3-for-4 with a homer in an extra-innings victory over the Twins on Saturday.

Segura's homer is the fourth of his 2018 campaign, and it was a solo blast off of Jake Odorizzi in the sixth inning. The three knocks raise Segura's average to .324, and he's driven in 34 runs in 50 games to go along with 12 steals on 14 attempts. He's one of the best fantasy shortstops in all of baseball.
May 27 - 2:07 AM

Nelson Cruz went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in a victory over the Twins on Saturday in extra innings.

It had been a while since Cruz has gone deep, as this was the first homer for the slugger in over three weeks, and only the second home run of the month of May. Keep in mind that Cruz has battled injuries, and we've seen the All-Star go through droughts only to put up big numbers by the end of the season. It'd be a big surprise if his numbers end up close to his current .225/.313/.437 slash over the first 38 games.
May 27 - 2:03 AM

Jake Odorizzi gave up three runs in 5 1/3 innings in a no decision against the Mariners on Saturday.

Odorizzi cruised through the first five innings, but gave up a solo shot to Jean Segura, and two batters later Nelson Cruz blasted a two-run shot to give the Mariners the 3-2 lead. Outside of that the former Tampa Bay starter was excellent, and he once again limited the self-inflicted damage with just one walk. He'll take a 3.34 ERA into his next start against the Indians on Saturday.
May 27 - 1:57 AM

Wade LeBlanc allowed just two runs in six innings on Saturday in a no decision against the Twins.

The veteran left-hander blanked the Twins over the first five innings, but did run into some trouble in the sixth while allowing his only runs in the game. LeBlanc has been outstanding since coming back to the Mariners, and his ERA is now down to 2.70 on the 2018 campaign. It's very hard to imagine he keeps this up, but he'll try against the Rangers on Thursday.
May 27 - 1:57 AM

Mike Zunino hit a walk-off homer in the bottom of the 12th inning to give the Mariners a 4-3 win on Saturday in 12 innings.

Zunino was having a miserable night before the blast; going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts. One swing of the bat changes miserable night to hero. It's the eighth homer of the season for the backstop, and it came off of Matt Magill with two outs and no one on. Zunino is still hitting just .198, but he's slugging .432. Another hot run could be coming soon for one of the streakiest players in all of baseball.
May 27 - 1:57 AM

Chris Taylor doubled and homered in a loss to the Padres on Saturday.

Taylor's homer was a leadoff shot against Jordan Lyles to give the Dodgers a 1-0 lead in the first. He's up to seven on the season, and the double gives Taylor 11 in 2018. The average leaves a lot to be desired at .241, but he has an .846 OPS in the month of May, and you should expect his .241/.330/.442 slash to increase as the season progresses.
