Alfredo Simon was brilliant in Friday's victory over the Astros, allowing three unearned runs on four hits over seven innings of work.

The Big Pasta racked up five strikeouts on the evening and walked one. The Astros scratched out three early runs against him in the second inning with the help of an Ian Kinsler error, but Simon didn't lose his composure and kept the Astros at bay the remainder of the night. He'll head into Wednesday's start against the A's in Oakland with a terrific 2.67 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 38/16 K/BB ratio over 57 1/3 frames.

Nelson Cruz went 2-for-4 with his major league-leading 17th home run in a win over the Blue Jays on Friday.

It was a solo shot off Marco Estrada in the sixth inning. Cruz has multi-hit games in three out of the last four and currently leads the AL with a .354 batting average. Kendrys Morales pulled ahead in RBI with a big night Friday against the Cardinals, but Cruz isn't too far off the pace there either. He has 34 RBI for the year.

Edwin Encarnacion went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs scored in a loss against the Mariners on Friday.

Encarnacion has now gone deep in back-to-back games. While the 32-year-old is hitting just .238 on the year, he's tied for third in the AL with 11 homers and also has 29 RBI.
May 22 - 10:13 PM

Chris Colabello was 3-for-4 with a two-run homer Friday against the Mariners.

His ninth-inning blast off Fernando Rodney made things interesting, but Toronto's rally ultimately fell short. Colabello has been great since coming up from the minors earlier this month, batting .381 with two home runs, five doubles, and a .990 OPS over 17 games. Of course, he had a big start with the Twins last year before inevitably coming back down to Earth, so we wouldn't get too carried away in fantasy leagues.
May 22 - 10:12 PM

George Springer went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI as the Astros fell to the Tigers in Detroit on Friday.

Springer's run-scoring double capped a three-run rally in the third inning to give the Astros an early lead, but that would be the entirety of their offense on the night. With the two-hit attack, he's now hitting .214/.344/.420 with six homers, 17 RBI and 10 stolen bases on the year.
May 22 - 10:11 PM

Collin McHugh logged a quality start in a losing effort against the Tigers on Friday, allowing three runs on nine hits over seven innings of work.

McHugh struck out a pair on the night while walking one. All of the damage against him came on one swing of the bat, as J.D. Martinez launched a two-out three-run home run in the third inning. He'll carry a 3.43 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 47/11 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's matchup against the Orioles in Baltimore.
May 22 - 10:09 PM

Bryce Harper blasted his 16th home run of the season on Friday, powering the Nationals to a 2-1 victory over the visiting Phillies.

Harper victimized Sean O'Sullivan for the solo blast in the second inning, the third time that he's taken the young right-hander deep this season. He is in a class of his own at the plate right now, slashing a ridiculous .336/.475/.750 to go along with his 16 bombs and 39 RBI. While it's only May, he's the clear early favorite for National League MVP honors it what is shaping up to be a breakout season for the 22-year-old.
May 22 - 10:06 PM

Drew Storen worked a scoreless ninth inning on Friday, preserving a one-run advantage against the Phillies to earn his 13th save of the season.

He did allow a pair of hits which put the game, and Max Scherzer's win, in jeopardy, but was able to battle back with a fly ball and a strikeout to end the evening. He has done a terrific job in his transition back to the closer's role, compiling a 0.98 ERA and 23/3 K/BB ratio across 18 1/3 innings.
