Jimmy Rollins is out of the White Sox lineup Tuesday.
Rollins is batting just .230/.290/.349 in 32 games this season and will continue to get regular days off. Tyler Saladino will start at shortstop and hit ninth Tuesday versus Indians right-hander Corey Kluber.
George Springer is batting leadoff for the Astros on Tuesday night against the Orioles.
Jose Altuve will bat second as manager A.J. Hinch tries to spark a fire. Springer batted leadoff in one game earlier this month, but he's otherwise hit second. The 26-year-old outfielder enters play Tuesday with a .254/.350/.452 batting line in 45 games.
Jake Lamb is getting the day off Tuesday.
Phil Gosselin will start at third base and bat second with the Pirates throwing left-hander Francisco Liriano. Lamb has a stellar .870 OPS in 43 games this season, but he's hit .103/.257/.310 against lefties.
Jake Odorizzi tossed five scoreless innings in Tuesday’s 4-3 win over the Marlins.
Odorizzi gave up just two hits, but walked three and struck out seven, so he needed 107 pitches to get through five innings. After going winless through his first eight turns, Odorizzi has now won back-to-back starts. He’ll bring a 3.46 ERA into a matchup against the Yankees on Sunday.
Tom Koehler allowed three runs over five innings in Tuesday’s loss to the Rays.
Jake Odorizzi delivered an RBI single in the second inning before Hank Conger brought home two runs with a single in the fourth. Koehler allowed six hits and walked five bats, so he was fortunate to only give up three runs. The 29-year-old owns a shaky 4.79 ERA and 37/30 K/BB ratio over 47 innings this season and should be ignored in most fantasy leagues.
Alex Colome notched a six-out save Tuesday against the Marlins.
It was his first six-out save. Colome entered the game with two on and nobody out in the eighth inning. He induced a double-play grounder before giving up an RBI single to Adeiny Hechavarria, but got Miguel Rojas to fly out to center field to end the threat. He then pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning, which included a pair of strikeouts. Colome has done an excellent job in the closer role for Tampa Bay, posting a 1.29 ERA and 28/4 K/BB ratio in 21 innings while going 12-for-12 in save chances. Brad Boxberger is expected to get his old job back when he comes off the DL, but Colome could make that decision more difficult than originally expected.
David Wright is out of the Mets' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Nationals.
Ty Kelly will start at third base and bat eighth versus Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg. It's just a routine day of maintenance for the veteran Wright.
Logan Morrison went 3-for-3 with a walk, a stolen base, and two runs scored Tuesday against the Marlins.
It look long enough, but Morrison continues to heat up at the plate. He’s 12-for-23 (.522) over his last eight games and has improved his batting average from .119 to .206 along the way.
