Andrew Cashner allowed eight hits and four runs over six innings in a loss to the Indians on Sunday.

The one bright spot for Cashner was that he was able to strike out seven while walking just two, but outside of that the right-hander was ineffective against the Cleveland lineup. Cashner is back on the mound on Friday in a home start against the Tigers.
Apr 22 - 4:23 PM

Corey Kluber picked up his third win over the season while giving up three runs in seven innings against the Orioles on Sunday.

Kluber wasn't as sharp as he has been in his other starts, but the 2017 Cy Young winner was still able to have an effective outing by keeping the aggressive Baltimore lineup off-balance -- for the most part. Manny Machado did hit two homers off the ace, but his ERA still sits at a very crisp 1.96. He'll look to lower that in his next start on Friday against the Mariners.
Apr 22 - 4:19 PM

Jose Ramirez blasted two homers on Sunday in a 7-3 victory over the Orioles.

Ramirez also drew a walk. The homers give him six on the season, and they also give him three in his last two games. The hits haven't dropped in for the 2017 MVP candidate yet as seen in his .236 average, but his .353 on-base percentage and .528 slugging percentage are much more indicative of the talent in Ramirez's switch-hitting bat. There's no reason to think he won't be among the better fantasy hitters in the American League again in 2018 when all is said and done.
Apr 22 - 4:16 PM

Teoscar Hernandez went 2-for-4 with a homer in a loss to the Yankees on Sunday.

Hernandez homer was the only run of the game for the Blue Jays, and it came off of Luis Severino in the top of the sixth inning. What a sensational start to the 2018 campaign it's been for the former Houston prospect, as he now owns a .343/.395/.743 line for his efforts. If you haven't yet, you should add Hernandez to your dynasty roster right now. He's obviously worth consideration in redraft leagues as well.
Apr 22 - 4:15 PM

Jaime Garcia picked up his first loss of the year by allowing four runs in 5 1/3 innings on Sunday to the Yankees.

Garcia gave up three runs in the first two innings -- two on a Didi Gregorius homer in the first -- but settled down over the last three-plus to limit the damage. He walked four and struck out six. The left-hander will look to get off to a better start in his next outing against the Rangers on Saturday.
Apr 22 - 4:12 PM

Gleyber Torres went 0-for-4 with a strikeout on Sunday in a win over the Blue Jays.

Not necessarily the big-league debut Torres was hoping for. The super-talented 22-year-old batted eighth in the loaded New York lineup, and that should be where we see him in the coming weeks. Don't be persuaded by the poor debut; this is an infielder with the chance to hit for a high average along with some power and a few steals to boost. He's going to be just fine.
Apr 22 - 4:10 PM

Didi Gregorius went 1-for-3 with a homer in a victory over the Blue Jays on Sunday.

The homer was a two-run shot off of Jaime Garcia in the first inning, and it gives the shortstop six on the year. There's an awful lot of baseball left to be played, but it's looking more and more likely that Gregorius's breakout 2017 season was for real. If he continues this pace, the shortstop is going to be an MVP candidate in 2018.
Apr 22 - 4:06 PM

Miguel Andujar went 4-for-4 with two doubles in a victory over the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Andujar now has seven doubles already on the season, which is a high number even before you consider that the 23-year-old wasn't on the Yankees' roster to begin the season. He's now slugging .596 on the season, and his .302 average helps show that he can hit for both average and power. Expect some inconsistency because Andujar won't walk much, but the talent is very real.
