Jeremy Hellickson surrendered four runs in six innings Monday in a loss to the Marlins.

Hellickson's horrible strikeout rate didn't hurt him in the early going, but it's taking a serious toll now; he ends May 1-3 with a 7.04 ERA after going 4-0 with a 1.80 ERA in April. We wouldn't expect a big rebound.

Derek Dietrich hit a two-run homer off the Phillies' Jeremy Hellickson on Monday.

Because of Martin Prado's injuries, Dietrich has played more than expected this year. However, he's failed to take advantage of the situation, hitting .227/.324/.361 in 119 at-bats. He's a better player than that, but he's still going to head back to the bench if the Marlins can get Prado healthy.

Michael Saunders went 0-for-4 against the Marlins on Monday, dropping his average to .226.

Now that Howie Kendrick is back, Saunders can no longer count on simply being penciled in against right-handers. He's hitting just .226/.270/.402 while also playing below average defense in the outfield. The Phillies would prefer he step it up and hopefully give himself some trade value in July, but Kendrick looks like the better player right now.

Russell Martin went 3-for-5 with a homer, a double and a walk as the Blue Jays crushed the Reds 17-2 on Monday.

Martin drove in three and scored three times. He was one of five Jays to collect at least three hits, joining Kendrys Morales, Justin Smoak, Devon Travis and Ezequiel Carrera. Only Kevin Pillar failed to join in the fun, finishing 0-for-6 from the leadoff spot.

Marcus Stroman cruised to an easy win in allowing two runs over six innings Monday against the Reds.

The Jays were winning 13-2 when Stroman's outing ended and ended up prevailing 17-2. Stroman improved to 6-2 with a 3.28 ERA.
May 29 - 11:47 PM

Lisalverto Bonilla was tagged for six runs in 2 1/3 innings Monday in his start against the Blue Jays.

On the plus side, both pitchers who relieved Bonilla were so bad that his performance might wind up mostly forgotten by the club. Robert Stephenson allowed seven runs and 10 hits in two innings after taking over, and Jake Buchanan finished up by allowing four runs and 10 hits in 3 2/3 innings. Bonilla, who walked five of the 15 batters he faced tonight, is now 0-3 with a 7.71 ERA. He belongs in middle relief if he's going to stick around.
May 29 - 11:46 PM

Kendrys Morales went 3-for-4 with two doubles, two walks and four runs scored Monday versus the Reds.

As you might imagine, Morales doesn't score four runs in a game very often. It's just the fourth time it's happened, and in one of the previous games, he hit three homers. Morales has been much improved in May and is hitting .258/.320/.466 with nine homers for the season.
May 29 - 11:44 PM

Justin Smoak went 3-for-5 with a homer, four RBI and a walk Monday in the rout of the Reds.

Smoak has eight homers in May and 12 overall. There's little chance that he'll continue hitting for average for any length of time, but the power numbers could remain pretty solid in the middle of the Jays lineup.
