Evan Gattis had a two-run homer and a double to help the Astros edge the Orioles 4-3 on Wednesday.

Gattis made his second start of the year at catcher in this one. He's 11-for-31 with four homers since returning from the minors on May 16, so whether he's catching or DHing, he's going to be in the starting lineup most of the time for the foreseeable future.

Collin McHugh allowed three runs in 5 1/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Orioles.

McHugh struck out 10, but he gave up eight hits, three of them coming before he was pulled in the sixth. McHugh has been a disappointment this year, but he's largely kept the Astros in games since getting absolutely blitzed in his season debut against the Yankees on April 6. He has a 4.30 ERA and a 48/11 K/BB ratio in 52 1/3 innings since.
May 25 - 11:19 PM

Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a walk in Wednesday's win over the Rays.

Ozuna got on base three times, but did most of his damage with a two-RBI single that beat the Rays' shift. He had been left for dead after hitting .229/.297/.410 in April, but the 25-year-old has torn the cover off the baseball in the month of May. On the season, he now owns a .331/.378/.587 slash line with nine homers and 25 RBI in 185 plate appearances.
May 25 - 11:18 PM

Jose Altuve went hitless in a fourth straight game Wednesday against the Orioles.

Altuve is 0-for-17 during his little funk. It's just the second time in his career that he's gone hitless in four straight starts. It also happened in May 2013. Since the beginning of 2014, he had gone hitless in three straight just one time (in May 2015).
May 25 - 11:16 PM

Logan Morrison continued to tear the cover off the baseball, going 3-for-4 with a two-run homer against the Marlins on Wednesday.

Morrison is now 15-for-27 (.556) with three home runs in his last nine games, and he's now safely over the Mendoza Line with a .225 batting average. The 28-year-old remains non-relevant in fantasy leagues, aside from those hyperactive owners who try to stream every hot streak.
May 25 - 11:14 PM

Hyun-soo Kim got a rare start over Joey Rickard on Wednesday and went 3-for-3 with two doubles and a walk against the Astros.

Ever since the season start, Kim has looked like the player the Orioles signed him to be. Maybe they should give him a real chance to show what he can do? He's 14-for-32 with three doubles, five walks and just two strikeouts in his very limited action.
May 25 - 11:13 PM

Matt Andriese allowed three earned runs in six innings, striking out six, in Wednesday’s loss to the Marlins.

Andriese had a tough time with the middle of the Marlins’ lineup. They accounted for all of his three runs allowed, all in the third inning, but the 2-5 hitters for the Marlins went 5-for-11 with a pair of doubles. The right-hander still tossed a quality start, but it was far from impressive and a reminder that he’s far from a touted prospect. The 2.63 ERA belies an undercurrent of mediocrity, as he owns a 5.60 K/9 and is being bolstered by an unsustainable .225 BABIP. Buyer beware.
May 25 - 11:08 PM

Justin Nicolino managed to strike out six in just 5 2/3 frames, but surrendered three earned runs on eight hits against the Rays on Wednesday night.

For a guy who only struck out a half-dozen batters in his previous 29 1/3 innings this year, Wednesday’s six-strikeout performance felt like it was from another world. He pushed his K/BB even at 12/12, which is cause for minor celebration. Nicolino was in line for the win before he served up a two-run homer to Logan Morrison, which chased him from the game with it tied at three-apiece. Nicolino has a 4.37 ERA and is safely left on the waiver wire, aside from NL-onlies.
