Noah Syndergaard surrendered four runs on five hits over 5 2/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

Syndergaard fanned six and walked two. It wasn't a poor outing by any stretch of the imagination, but a three-run fourth inning proved to be his downfall. While he was unable to provide a full six innings of work, he at least kept the pitch count respectable, exiting stage left after tossing 98 pitches. The 23-year-old right-hander holds a 2.51 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 44/6 K/BB ratio across 32 1/3 innings (five starts). Prior to Sunday's contest, Syndergaard had pitched at least six innings in every outing. He will attempt to reach that plateau once more in a road duel with the Padres next time he takes to the mound.

Troy Tulowitzki went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Rays.

Edwin Encarnacion's RBI ground out in the eighth inning snapped a 1-1 tie, but it was Tulowitzki who truly salted the game away. His three-run homer off reliever Alex Colome later in the frame took the edge off what had been a tense pitcher's duel between Marcus Stroman and Jake Odorizzi. While Sunday's three-run dinger was nice, we are still waiting for Tulo to lock into any sort of a consistent groove. His .172/.291/.356 slugging percentage is troubling for obvious reasons, but he makes for a prime buy-low candidate if owners are beginning to grow skittish.
May 1 - 4:10 PM

Evan Longoria cracked a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Longoria's solo sixth-inning homer would be the only runs the Rays scored against a locked in Marcus Stroman. It was his fifth of the season and his second in as many days. The veteran third baseman also notched a single to finish 2-for-4. Through his first 99 at-bats, he is slashing .242/.272/.455. He should continue to serve as a solid, veteran fantasy option moving forward.
May 1 - 4:02 PM

Zack Cozart left Sunday's game against the Pirates with an apparent right knee injury.

Cozart reached on an error to start the top of the eighth inning but then was met by a trainer at second base. He appeared to point to his right knee and then walked off the field. It's the same knee that Cozart had ACL surgery on last season, so it's reasonable to have some concern. The Reds should have more on Cozart's status later Sunday.

Marcus Stroman was superb in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Rays, yielding one run on three hits over eight innings.

Well, that's one way to celebrate a birthday. Stroman turned 25 on Sunday and with the win, the birthday boy improved to 4-0 on the young season. He struck out nine against two walks, throwing 103 pitches (65 strikes) over the course of his eight innings of work. Only an Evan Longoria solo home run in the sixth inning prevented him from the shutout. With the superlative outing under his belt, Stroman will take a 3.77 ERA and 0.95 WHIP into his next scheduled start. That one will come against the Dodgers.
May 1 - 3:54 PM

Jake Odorizzi was sharp in earning a no-decision in Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Blue Jays, hurling seven innings of one-run ball.

Don't be fooled by the 5-1 final score. This was a juicy pitching duel by starters Odorizzi and Marcus Stroman until the Rays bullpen coughed up four late runs. For his part, Odorizzi struck out six, walked two and allowed just a pair of hits. The lonely run to score on his watch came when Josh Donaldson clocked a solo homer off the 26-year-old right-hander in the fourth inning. Odorizzi is off to a smooth start with a 3.12 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 30/7 K/BB ratio across 34 2/3 innings. A road date with the Angels awaits him in his next outing.
May 1 - 3:52 PM

Angel Pagan left Sunday's game against the Mets with an apparent injury.

Pagan was thrown out while trying to stretch his single into a double in the top of the seventh inning and was replaced by Gregor Blanco in left field to start the bottom of the frame. The Giants should have an update on his status shortly.
May 1 - 3:43 PM

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Sunday that Andrew McCutchen's left knee "just felt a little cranky" on Saturday.

McCutchen is back in the lineup Sunday, so it doesn't appear this is something to worry about at the moment. However, keep in mind that he dealt with a knee issue early last season, as well, so it's certainly an item that needs to be filed away. McCutchen entered play Sunday batting just .226/.339/.441 on the season.
