Sam Fuld - OF - Twins

Sam Fuld reached base three times, drove in a run and scored another in Wednesday's 8-1 blowout at Seattle's expense.

He finished 1-for-2 with a pair of walks. Fuld is 13-for-29 (.448) over his past nine games, and he's accrued a multi-hit game in four of his last seven. He doesn't have the tools to be a consistent contributor in even AL-only leagues, but he can be started by those without better options in that format as long as he's hot and receiving everyday at-bats.

Kyle Gibson spun six shutout innings in Wednesday's 8-1 victory over the Mariners.

Gibson scattered seven hits, punched out three and issued one free pass. He's gone 4-2 with a 2.51 ERA in seven starts at home, but came into this outing 3-5 with a 5.54 ERA in 10 road outings. Looking to continue to improve his effectiveness away from the Twin Cities in the second half, Gibson heads into the All-Star break 8-7 with a 3.92 ERA and 1.26 WHIP.

Roenis Elias was tagged for seven runs -- six earned -- on seven hits over 3 1/3 innings in a loss to the Twins on Wednesday.

Elias boasted a 3.74 ERA heading into play on June 28, but he's one player thrilled to have a few days away from the game next week. The young left-hander has yielded 16 earned runs in 14 1/3 innings (10.05 ERA) to lose back-to-back-back starts, and he tied his season-low in innings pitched tonight in his most recent nightmare. Elias threw 141 and 130 innings over the past two years, respectively, and had never pitched above Double-A until this season. At 112-plus frames, his workload might be catching up to him. It's also possible that a league of ferocious hitters has started to handle his decent-but-not great arsenal after getting a handle on it; Elias' nasty curveball isn't as effective if batters aren't forced to offer at it, and they don't have to if they get ahead in the count. Elias finishes his first half-season in the big leagues with a 7-8 record, 4.54 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 96/40 K/BB rate over 113 innings.
Jul 10 - 1:34 AM

Santiago Casilla nailed down his fourth save of the season Wednesday as the Giants stopped the A's.

Casilla has been one of the league's best relievers all season, which made it easy for Bruce Bochy to replace Sergio Romo as closer last week. Casilla hasn't allowed a run since May 16, though his peripherals suggest he's gotten a little lucky. He boasts a 1.05 ERA, 0.82 WHIP and 25/10 K/BB rate over 34 1/3 innings.
Jul 10 - 1:30 AM

Hunter Pence went 2-for-5 with a homer, two RBI and a run scored as the Giants topped the A's 5-2 on Wednesday.

Pence is 36-for-105 (.343) over his last 25 games. This is his second consecutive multi-hit game against the A's, which is no surprise from a player who went 5-for-8 with a homer against Oakland in San Francisco last year. The outfielder is batting .302/.361/.478 and is on pace for 21 homers and 116 RBI.
Jul 10 - 1:25 AM

Matt Cain fired six innings of two-run ball in a victory over the A's on Wednesday.

Cain whiffed four, walked two and allowed five hits in earning his first win since May 15. Entering tonight, he'd gone 0-4 with a 4.65 ERA in seven starts since that date. With that as a caveat, Cain has actually pitched quite well in the very recent past, allowing just four earned runs total over his last three outings. Now 2-7 with a 4.18 ERA, he heads into the break hoping to carry over the momentum.
Jul 10 - 1:23 AM

In his Oakland debut, Jason Hammel entitled the Giants to three runs -- two earned -- over five innings in Wednesday's 5-2 loss.

He scuffled in green and gold, walking three and allowing six hits in failing to guide the A's to a season-high seventh consecutive victory. The 31-year-old hurler collected an 8-5 record, 2.98 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 104/23 K/BB ratio over 108 2/3 innings as a member of the Cubs prior to coming over with Jeff Samardzija for Addison Russell, Dan Straily, Billy McKinney and a PTBNL last week. Hammel finished the first half 8-6 with a 3.60 ERA and 1.06 WHIP.
Jul 10 - 1:22 AM

Brandon McCarthy, making his Yankees debut, allowed four runs (one earned) over 6 2/3 innings in Wednesday's 5-4, 14-inning win over the Indians.

McCarthy joined the Yankees in the trade that sent Vidal Nuno to the D'Backs on Sunday. The right-hander allowed three unearned runs in the first inning and one earned run in the fourth. Overall, he surrendered nine hits, walked one, and struck out three. Combined with his time with the D'Backs, McCarthy is 3-10 with a 4.80 ERA and a 96/21 K/BB ratio. McCarthy will face the Reds at Yankee Stadium following the All-Star break.
