John Lackey allowed five earned runs, six hits and four walks with five strikeouts over five innings in a loss at L.A. Dodgers on Saturday.

Lackey entered with a 1.73 ERA in his career against the Dodgers, lowest against any single opponent, but L.A. certainly put a dent in that number. Kike Hernandez delivered a double against the veteran, while Chris Taylor left the yard for a 2-run homer. The right-hander threw just 58 of his 95 pitches for strikes as his ERA shot up to 5.18.

Chase Utley went 2-for-4 with three RBI in Saturday's win against the Cubs.

Utley has pieced together a modest three-game hitting streak and he has driven in at least one run (five total RBI) during the span. The veteran second baseman has driven in 12 runs over his past 15 games to re-emerge as a useful fantasy option in most NL-only leagues and some deeper mixed formats.
May 28 - 12:40 AM

Cody Bellinger was 0-for-1 with three walks in Saturday's win against the Cubs.

Bellinger has hit a bit of a wall, going 8-for-41 (.195) with just two doubles, two homers and six RBI over the past 12 games to drop his average from .319 to .273 just since May 14. The rookie was putting up ridiculous numbers and he was due to cool off eventually.
May 28 - 12:37 AM

Ross Stripling allowed just one hit over three scoreless innings while striking out two batters for a save Saturday against the Cubs.

Stripling was impressive throwing 33 of his 44 pitches for strikes, so manager Dave Roberts allowed him to finish the game and save his bullpen for another day. He has been a godsend for Roberts, as the stretched out sometimes starter has filled in admirably when the starting pitcher goes down to injury. Stripling is cruising along with a 2.54 ERA and is useful in deeper rotisserie formats using true middle relievers.

J.J. Hardy finished 2-for-3 in Saturday's loss against the Astros.

Hardy has hovered at or near the Mendoza line for a good chunk of the past month. However, he has three multi-hit games, and back-to-back two-hit efforts, pulling his average up to .219. That doesn't sound terribly impressive, but it's his highest mark since April 23.
May 27 - 11:47 PM

Wade Miley allowed four earned runs, eight hits and three walks with just two strikeouts over five innings in a loss in Houston on Saturday.

The southpaw is 1-1 with a 4.24 ERA in six starts away from home, but he has a tremendous 0.92 ERA across four home outings. Overall he has a solid 3.02 ERA and would have a few more wins if not for weak run support from his offense. Miley remains useful in the back end of rotations for owners in deeper AL-only fantasy leagues.
May 27 - 11:44 PM

Jose Altuve finished 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, two runs scored, an RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's game against Baltimore.

Altuve saw his average briefly dip under .300 for a few games, but this three hit game has him slashing .301/.367/.500 and he is up to 10 stolen bases, too. The All-Star second baseman can do it all, contributing a high rate of extra-base hits, RBI, a respectable strikeout-to-walk ratio and plenty of thefts.
May 27 - 11:41 PM

Bud Norris pitched the ninth inning of Saturday's win over the Marlins.

It was a non-save situation. Norris allowed one run on a solo homer by Marcell Ozuna and also issued a walk but was clean otherwise. This came one night after Norris was removed with a minor knee injury. He should be fine going forward.
