Mike Pelfrey punched out a season-high seven batters over five innings in Friday's victory over the Tigers.

The veteran right-hander allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits and a walk. He had struck out just 11 batters through 29 2/3 innings on the season entering play on Friday, so the strikeout explosion came out of nowhere. With this fine effort, he now owns a respectable 4.41 ERA and 1.21 WHIP on the season. He still isn't a recommended fantasy option for Wednesday's start against the Red Sox.

Alex Avila blasted his sixth home run of the season as the Tigers fell to the White Sox on Friday night in Chicago.

Avila's solo shot off of Mike Pelfrey in the fifth inning pulled the Tigers to within a run at 3-2, but that would be as close as they would get. Avila has been a monster at the plate this season, slashing .354/.475/.659 with six homers and 20 RBI. With James McCann on the disabled list, he'll continue to see regular run behind the plate.

Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) was in the starting lineup Friday against the Braves and he finished 2-for-4 with a stolen base.

He made it through the whole game and the stolen base was the best thing for fantasy owners to see, as he wouldn't have chanced stealing if his hamstring was giving him trouble. It appears safe to plug him back into the active fantasy lineup in all leagues allowing daily moves.
May 27 - 2:48 AM

Christian Arroyo was hitless in three at-bats in Friday's game against the Braves.

Arroyo's average slipped to just .186 and he is hitless over the past five games across 19 at-bats. After a hot start the prospect might be on the verge of a trip back to Triple-A Sacramento for more seasoning. Eduardo Nunez was able to play Friday and apparently is over a hamstring issue, so perhaps that might make the decision easier for the Giants to send Arroyo down.
May 27 - 2:46 AM

Matt Boyd struggled again in Friday's loss to the White Sox, surrendering three runs on nine hits in 4 2/3 innings.

The left-hander also walked two while striking out three on the night. All of the damage against him came in the third inning where Avisail Garcia delivered a three-run double. He now sits at 2-5 on the year with an uninspiring 5.40 ERA and 1.74 WHIP. The Tigers don't really have a better option to take the ball every fifth day though, so he'll remain in the rotation to work through his issues. He should be avoided for fantasy purposes despite a nice matchup against the Royals in Kansas City on Wednesday.
May 27 - 2:46 AM

Matt Cain allowed two runs - one earned - with seven hits and a walk over seven innings in a loss against the Braves on Friday.

Cain threw 64 of his 92 pitches for strikes while recording three punchouts. After an impressive 2-0 record with a 2.30 ERA in five April starts he has stumbled to a 1-3 mark and 6.59 ERA in five outings in the month of May. Walks have done him in so far in May, as he has 15 walks with just 14 strikeouts across 27 1/3 innings.
May 27 - 2:33 AM

Tyler Flowers finished 2-for-4 with a run scored in Friday's 2-0 win in San Francisco.

Flowers is humming along with a slash line of .351/.465/.447. He is a career .238 hitter so this type of sustained production after nearly two full months is quite the surprise. He continues to split the receiver duties with fellow veteran Kurt Suzuki, so he is still useful only as a No. 2 fantasy option in NL-only play.
May 27 - 2:28 AM

Jim Johnson struck out two batters in a perfect ninth inning in Friday's win in San Francisco.

Johnson secured his 10th save of the season, rebounding from a blown save in his last appearance on Tuesday. He has allowed just three earned runs over his past 12 innings dating back to April 27. Despite an ugly 3.48 ERA for a closer he is a valuable fantasy option. When Atlanta wins they are generally going to be close games needing Johnson to finish it off.
