Matt Kemp went 3-for-4 and hit a three-run homer off the Padres' Clayton Richard in Friday's win.

Kemp's average is up to .338. He's not really hitting for any more power than usual or striking out much less than usual, but his BABIP is through the rook, fueling a batting average that's 50 points higher than any of his marks from the previous five years. One would think that's not going to hold up all year. Still, he's been decent enough on defense that he could falter some and still deserve to remain in the lineup.

Franchy Cordero went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts Friday in the loss to the Dodgers.

Cordero has had one multihit game while batting .225 with one homer and six RBI in 71 at-bats this month. The power will come back, but OBP is still a question mark and his defense is a big issue that cuts into his value to the Padres. It's still possible that he could wind up back in Triple-A at some point.

James Paxton held the Twins to one run over seven innings and struck out 11 to win Friday.

Paxton gave up six runs in his first start of the season, but he's pitched like a Cy Young threat ever since. He'd be a legitimate candidate to take home that hardware if he could make 32 starts this year. Unfortunately, his career high to date is 24 starts and 136 innings.
May 26 - 12:36 AM

Edwin Diaz notched his 18th save with a perfect ninth Friday against the Twins.

The Mariners acquired a closer today, but they're certainly to use Alex Colome in the eighth. Diaz has been terrific in amassing a 1.71 ERA. Really, it's hard to see how the league has scored even five runs against him with his stuff. He's allowed nine hits, walked nine and struck out 46 in 26 1/3 innings.
May 26 - 12:35 AM

Fernando Romero surrendered two runs over seven innings in a tough loss to the Mariners on Friday.

It's Romero's first defeat in five starts, as he was outpitched by James Paxton. He should have a more favorable matchup next time out against the Royals.
May 26 - 12:33 AM

Max Kepler went 2-for-3 and homered off James Paxton for the Twins' only run of Friday's game.

Kepler's success hasn't translated into much fantasy value, but he seems to have taken a step forward as a player, especially when it comes to hitting left-handers. In fact, four of his seven homers this year have come in lefty-lefty matchups.
May 26 - 12:31 AM

Robbie Grossman went 0-for-3 in the loss to the Mariners on Friday.

Grossman's primary skill is his ability to get on base, but he's at .300 this year with just five runs scored in 120 plate appearances. The Twins are going to have to look elsewhere for a bench bat if this keeps up.
May 26 - 12:30 AM

Mookie Betts blasted his MLB-leading 17th homer in Friday’s 6-2 victory over the Braves.

The Red Sox were up by one run when Betts deposited a two-run homer into the Monster Seats in the seventh. That gives him four homers in his last seven games. Betts also drew a walk and stole a base on the night. In addition to leading the majors in homers, he’s also at the top in batting average (.361) and OPS (1.199). Mike Trout is having an amazing year, but Betts has been the most valuable player in fantasy leagues so far this season.
