Mark Teixeira went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run to help lead the Yankees past the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Teixeira pushed the Yankees' lead to 5-0 in the fifth inning when he drove a Marco Estrada offering over the fence in right-center. The first baseman hasn't hit more than 24 home runs in a season since 2011 and capped out at 22 last season, but he's already up to 10 this year. Along with that, he's hitting .205/.324/.602 with 22 RBI.

Danny Salazar struck out nine batters but allowed four runs over seven innings in Tuesday's loss to the Royals.

Salazar's first inning was his undoing, as Alex Gordon singled, Kendrys Morales was hit by a pitch and Eric Hosmer hit a three-run homer. Otherwise, Salazar was terrific, allowing just five hits all night without walking a batter. The loss was his first, dropping him to 3-1 with a 3.81 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 37/5 K/BB ratio. When his control is on point, as it has been since returning to the Indians on April 18, Salazar is as dangerous a pitcher as there is in the game. He'll look to get back in the win column Sunday against the Twins.
May 5 - 10:38 PM

Jason Vargas allowed two runs over six innings in a win over the Indians on Tuesday.

Vargas was incredibly efficient, giving up just two hits and walking two in the win. He needed just 82 pitches to get through six but Royals manager Ned Yost chose to remove him and turn to his stellar bullpen to finish the deed. The start was the second in which Vargas has allowed two runs and his second straight win, moving him to 3-1 overall. He draws a tough assignment next, taking on the Tigers on Sunday.
May 5 - 10:38 PM

Russell Martin doubled twice and hit a solo home run in four at-bats, but the Blue Jays lost to the Yankees on Tuesday.

Martin doubled twice with two outs and the Blue Jays weren't able to bring him home. In the ninth, the Jays mounted a rally, which started with Martin's solo home run off of David Carpenter, but it wasn't enough. He's been on a home run surge as of late, homering in three of his last four games. Martin owns six homers in total along with 17 RBI and a .263/.388/.575 triple-slash line.
May 5 - 10:37 PM

Marco Estrada, making his first start of the season, was hit around by the Yankees in a loss on Tuesday as he allowed five runs (four earned) in 4 2/3 innings.

Estrada had been used out of the bullpen but moved into the starting rotation when Daniel Norris went down with an injury. The right-hander allowed eight hits -- including a two-run home run to Mark Teixeira -- while striking out three and allowing no walks. Estrada isn't a bad streaming option. He doesn't carry a platoon split but he does have a propensity to allow home runs, so choose your match-ups wisely. He'll face the Orioles in Baltimore next.
May 5 - 10:34 PM

Michael Pineda was dominant in a win against the Blue Jays on Tuesday, tossing eight shutout innings.

On 101 pitches, Pineda scattered five hits and a walk while striking out six batters. Three of the hits were doubles, but all came with two outs and Pineda easily saw his way out of danger. The right-hander now has a 2.97 ERA, a 1.04 WHIP, and a stellar 38/3 K/BB ratio in 39 1/3 innings. Pineda's next opponent, the Orioles, will be loath to face him in a matinee in the Bronx.
May 5 - 10:30 PM

Michael Lorenzen pitched six effective innings to pick up his first major league win as the Reds defeated the Pirates 7-1 on Tuesday.

Lorenzen allowed his only run in the second inning, when Starling Marte belted a solo home run to right field. Other than that, he kept the Pirates' bats silent, giving up only three hits and three walks while striking out four. Despite the strong outing, we're not recommending Lorenzen for fantasy purposes until he proves he can consistently deliver strong results. He'll try to do just that when he returns to the mound to face the White Sox in Chicago on Sunday.
May 5 - 10:25 PM

Jeff Locke got the loss on Tuesday, allowing the Reds to score four times in seven innings.

Locke gave up a pair of home runs in the process: a solo shot to Todd Frazier in the second inning, and a two-run blast to Marlon Byrd in the third. Overall, he yielded seven hits and two walks while striking out five. After posting strong results in his first two starts, Locke has been mediocre in his last three and now has a 4.85 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, and a 25/9 K/BB ratio over 29 2/3 innings. He'll find an even tougher match-up in his next scheduled start as he takes on the Cardinals at home on Sunday.
