Trevor Cahill allowed three runs in the first inning on his way to a four-run, six-inning outing against the Phillies in Sunday's loss.

Cahill struck out two and walked three while scattering five hits over six innings. The Braves handed Cahill a 2-0 lead in the first inning, which Cahill immediately squandered when he served up a a three-run home run to Ryan Howard. While the 27-year-old right-hander allowed just one run in his remaining five innings in the game, he still fell to 0-3 on the season. Cahill now owns an 8.03 ERA and 1.78 WHIP through three starts. Given his 5.61 ERA over 110 1/3 innings last season, it's hard to see much positive here. He'll try to right the ship against the Reds during an upcoming homestand.

Jake Arrieta held the Reds to two runs over six innings Sunday in the Cubs' 5-2 win.

Arrieta had a perfect game until the bottom of the fourth inning, when Todd Frazier slugged a two-out solo homer to left field. Arrieta allowed only one more run the rest of the way -- on a Billy Hamilton fielder's choice in the bottom of the fifth inning -- moving to 3-1 with a 2.03 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, and 25/7 K/BB ratio in 26 2/3 total frames. He gets the Brewers at home next time out.
Apr 26 - 4:16 PM

Chris Archer kept rolling along Sunday, yielding just two hits and one walk while striking out seven across seven shutout frames in a 5-1 win over the Blue Jays.

Archer allowed two of the first four hitters he faced to reach base and then just one got on the rest of the way. The young right-hander is on some kind of streak, as he hasn't allowed an earned run in his last four outings after a so-so Opening Day start. He already has three starts this season where he's given up two hits or fewer and no runs across seven innings. Archer will take on the Orioles in Baltimore next weekend.
Apr 26 - 4:12 PM

Anthony DeSclafani allowed five runs -- one earned -- over five innings Sunday in the Reds' loss to the Cubs.

DeSclafani was victimized by fielding errors from Todd Frazier and Brandon Phillips in taking his first loss of the 2015 season. Because four of the Cubs' runs were unearned, DeSclafani still boasts a shiny 1.04 ERA in 26 innings to go along with a 0.77 WHIP and 21/6 K/BB ratio. He'll hope for some better defense next Friday in Atlanta.
Apr 26 - 4:10 PM

Rajai Davis was removed from Sunday's game against the Indians due to tightness in his right groin.

Davis pulled up while running to first base on a single in the ninth inning. He appears to have avoided anything significant though and is considered day-to-day.
Apr 26 - 4:10 PM

Mark Buehrle was lit up for five runs on 13 hits and a walk over 5 2/3 frames in Sunday's loss to the Rays.

Just two of the 13 hits he surrendered went for extra bases, but clearly the Rays didn't have any trouble with Buehrle in this one. The veteran left-hander had posted three straight quality starts before this shellacking. He'll try to bounce back in Cleveland next weekend.
Apr 26 - 4:07 PM

Astros prospect Carlos Correa had a productive night Saturday, going 3-for-5 with a homer and a stolen base for Double-A Corpus Christi in the second game of a doubleheader.

Correa rebounded nicely after going hitless in the first game of the doubleheader. The 20-year-old has quietly been one of the best hitters in Double-A this season, ranking fifth in the Texas League in batting average (.356) and second in RBI (16). It's only a matter of time before he gets called up to Triple-A Fresno.

Dan Haren limited the Nationals to two runs over five innings Sunday in the Marlins' 6-2 victory.

Haren gave up a bomb to Bryce Harper in the top of the second inning but otherwise looked strong, yielding only three total hits and whiffing three Nationals. He was reluctant to join the Marlins this offseason, but the 34-year-old right-hander owns an impressive 3.38 ERA and 0.92 WHIP through 24 innings. He'll try to keep it all rolling next time out against the Phillies.
