Danny Salazar racked up 10 strikeouts over six innings as he defeated the Twins in his season debut on Saturday.

The young right-hander surrendered two runs on six hits and a pair of walks on the afternoon. The Indians are committed to keeping Salazar in the rotation and he showed a glimpse of why that is with this terrific start. He'll look to keep things rolling when he takes the ball against the Tigers in Detroit on Friday.
Apr 18 - 4:50 PM

Kurt Suzuki belted his second home run of the season on Saturday but it wasn't enough for the Twins to overcome the Indians.

Suzuki tagged Indians' starter Danny Salazar for a solo blast in the seventh inning, cutting the deficit to 4-2, but that would be as close as the Twins would get. He finished the day 1-for-3 plus a walk and is now hitting .214/.313/.429 on the season.
Apr 18 - 4:49 PM

Aaron Harang yielded three runs over six innings in a 5-3 win over the Nationals on Saturday.

Harang allowed seven hits (including a long home run to Bryce Harper) and a pair of walks to go along with six strikeouts. The game was tied after six innings, but Phillies scored in the top of the seventh to put him in line for the victory. The veteran right-hander has delivered quality starts in each of his first three turns this season and owns a 1.96 ERA and 15/5 K/BB ratio in 18 1/3 innings. He's not someone to target in mixed fantasy leagues, but he's giving the Phillies everything they were hoping for and then some.
Apr 18 - 4:47 PM

Jordan Zimmermann gave up four runs (two earned) over 6 1/3 innings in a loss to the Phillies on Saturday.

Zimmermann didn't get any help from his defense, namely from Ian Desmond, but he wasn't particularly sharp either. He gave up four hits and four walks while striking out three batters. It's worth noting that he didn't walk more than three batters in any of his 32 starts last season. After back-to-back uncharacteristic outings, he'll look to bounce back against the Marlins next week.
Apr 18 - 4:46 PM

Phil Hughes struggled in a losing effort against the Indians on Saturday, allowing four runs on eight hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Hughes struck out three while walking one on the afternoon. While he did enough to keep the Twins in the ballgame, he was simply outdueled by Danny Salazar on the other side of the diamond. Now 0-3 on the season, Hughes will look to improve upon a 5.30 ERA and 1.39 WHIP when he takes on the Mariners in Seattle on Friday.
Apr 18 - 4:46 PM

Jonathan Papelbon tossed a 1-2-3 ninth inning Saturday against the Nationals for his third save of the season.

He struck out one in the frame. Papelbon has been spotless on the young season, allowing just one hit with a 4/0 K/BB ratio across 5 1/3 innings of work.
Apr 18 - 4:46 PM

Odubel Herrera was 3-for-4 with an RBI, two runs scored, and two stolen bases in Saturday's win over the Nationals.

Herrera also drew a walk, so he reached base in four out of his five plate appearances. The Rule 5 pick has impressed in the early going, posting a .308/.372/.513 batting line across 12 games, including five straight starts out of the leadoff spot. The Phillies' lineup is terrible, but he's going to have some value in deeper formats with his speed.
Apr 18 - 4:44 PM

Freddy Galvis went 2-for-5 with two RBI on Saturday against the Nationals.

Galvis had a pair of RBI singles in the victory. The 25-year-old probably wouldn't be hitting second for any other team, but he's made starts from there in seven out of the last eight games. He's hitting .317 (13-for-41) with a .378 on-base percentage so far, so don't look for Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg to change it.
