Aaron Nola allowed just two singles over seven scoreless innings Thursday in a no-decision against the Nationals.

Nola had great movement on his pitches and was incredibly efficient, walking one batter and striking out seven while throwing 54 out of 77 pitches for strikes. He didn’t get the win, but the Phillies eventually got the upper hand in the ninth inning to finish off the three-game sweep. The Phillies held the Nationals scoreless over the final 22 innings of the series. With a 3.55 ERA and 37/6 K/BB ratio over 33 innings, Nola continues to impress.

Tanner Roark didn’t factor into the decision, but fired seven scoreless frames against the Phillies on Thursday.

Roark held the Phillies to just two hits (both singles) and a pair of walks while striking out six. He now has 14 consecutive scoreless innings under his belt and owns a 2.03 ERA and 30/13 K/BB ratio in 31 innings over five starts. We wouldn’t count on more 15-strikeout games in his future, but he’s proving to be an asset in mixed leagues again in his return to the rotation.

Danny Espinosa went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in Thursday’s loss to the Phillies.

Espinosa is now batting .172/.310/.190 overall. Meanwhile, top prospect shortstop Trea Turner entered Thursday’s action with a .357/.430/.529 batting line over 18 games with Triple-A Syracuse. Just saying.

David Ross clubbed a solo homer and drew a walk in Thursday’s 7-2 win over the Brewers.

It was his second home run of the season and the 98th of his career. The 39-year-old could see some more playing time with Miguel Montero (back) sidelined, but he’s a poor fit for a significant role at this point in his career. Tim Federowicz was called up from Triple-A Iowa on Thursday, but neither are all that interesting from a fantasy perspective.
Apr 28 - 8:54 PM

Jake Arrieta was no Johnny Vander Meer on Thursday, but he was victorious after holding the Brewers to one run over five innings.

Arrieta needed 92 pitches to get through five innings, allowing three hits and four walks while striking out six. He gave up an RBI double to Alex Presley in the fifth inning to end his home scoreless streak at 52 2/3 innings. That’s the second-longest such streak in MLB history. Arrieta is now 5-0 with a 1.00 ERA and 32/10 K/BB ratio in 36 innings. He’ll get the division rival Pirates next week.
Apr 28 - 8:53 PM

Taylor Jungmann was tagged for five runs on six hits and three walks over 3 2/3 innings Thursday in a loss to the Cubs.

Jungmann also hit Kris Bryant twice as his miserable start to the season continues. The 26-year-old owns a 9.15 ERA and 13/13 K/BB ratio in 20 2/3 innings through five starts. He shouldn’t be anywhere near your fantasy team and might not have a rotation spot for much longer.
Apr 28 - 8:51 PM

Jonathan Villar went 3-for-4 with a walk, three stolen bases, and two runs scored Thursday against the Cubs.

Domingo Santana got the day off Thursday, so Villar made his second start of the season out of the leadoff spot. He took advantage of the opportunity, increasing his batting average from .230 to .262 with his big day at the plate. He was also finally active on the base paths. The 24-year-old entered the day just 2-for-4 in stolen base attempts this season.
Apr 28 - 8:51 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits and three walks over 3 2/3 innings Thursday in his first minor league rehab start with Triple-A Pawtucket.

Rodriguez, who is working his way back from a right patella subluxation, struck out two batters and threw 45 out of 75 pitches for strikes. Coming off the shaky outing, the southpaw still figures to make one or two more starts in the minors before joining the Red Sox. Henry Owens will continue to hold down a rotation spot for now.
