Devin Mesoraco hit into a fielder's choice as a pinch hitter in Friday's loss to the Cardinals.

Mesoraco sat out Wednesday's game after he was drilled on the wrist by a pitch during Wednesday's game. He should return to action behind the plate before the end of the weekend.

Jed Lowrie stayed hot on Friday against the Red Sox, going 4-for-5 with two doubles.

Lowrie is hitting an impressive .372 and he leads the majors with 32 hits and 22 RBI. He started his career with the Red Sox and showed them a little bit about what they're missing, not that the 17-2 leaders of the American League East need much help. He'll look to keep it going on Saturday against Chris Sale. He is 8-for-20 (.400) with two RBI and four strikeouts in his career against the left-handed starter for Boston.

Kendall Graveman was knocked around for six earned runs, seven hits and no walks with six strikeouts over five innings in a loss Friday against the Red Sox.

Despite the poor performance he was encouraged by his new delivery, including a souped up changeup. He has allowed seven homers, tied for the most in the majors with Texas SP Cole Hamels. Graveman also has a 10.07 ERA through five starts, and the team has reportedly considered sending him down to Triple-A Nashville to iron out his issues. Fantasy owners need to avoid him like the plague right now. Daniel Gossett could be the pitcher who replaces Graveman in the rotation, if that's the way the A's organization decides to go.
Apr 21 - 2:38 AM

Jackie Bradley was back in the lineup Friday in Oakland and he finished 1-for-3 with a three-run home run and a walk.

The outfielder has found his power stroke on this California road trip, going 5-for-13 with a double, two homers and five RBI since the West Coast swing kicked off on April 17. He has started off slowly, but is starting to round into form. Since he struggles with left-handed pitching, he might take a seat on Saturday against LHP Sean Manaea. Even if he starts he isn't a recommended option in DFS play.
Apr 21 - 2:34 AM

Mitch Moreland had just one hit over four at-bats in Friday's 7-3 win at Oakland, but the hit was good for a grand slam.

Moreland's bases-clearing homer came off of Emilio Pagan in the sixth inning and it was the big blow to break a 3-3 tie. He is slashing .333/.400/.615, doing a good job in the middle of a powerful Red Sox lineup. Moreland is expected to remain a part-time player for now, but if he stays hot he could force his way into the lineup on a more frequent basis.
Apr 21 - 2:31 AM

Drew Pomeranz (forearm) allowed three earned runs, five hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in 3 2/3 innings in a no-decision Friday in Oakland.

Pomeranz labored through his 88-pitch outing, throwing just 58 pitches for strikes and he uncorked a pair of wild pitches. It was his first start since coming off the 10-day disabled list due to a flexor strain suffered during spring training. A little rust was to be expected, especially on the road. He'll look for better results at home against the ice-cold Royals on Tuesday night.
Apr 21 - 2:27 AM

Corey Seager finished Friday's game 0-for-3 with two strikeouts, but he was able to reach base twice after getting hit by pitch.

The two HBP came courtesy of Max Scherzer, who was certainly not doing it intentionally. It was the first time a Dodger has been hit by two pitches in a game since Justin Turner on April 15, 2017. He'll look to get back on track in the hitting department on Saturday, but it won't be easy facing down against Stephen Strasburg.
Apr 21 - 2:21 AM

Clayton Kershaw allowed four earned runs, nine hits and no walks with four strikeouts over seven innings in Friday's loss against the Nationals.

Kershaw lost the rare battle between three-time Cy Young Award winners, as Max Scherzer was much more efficient. It was the first time a pair of three-time Cy Young winners hooked up since Greg Maddux against Roger Clemens back in 2006. Kershaw didn't lose his third decision until Sept. 7 last season. He'll next take the ball on Wednesday in Arizona opposite Zack Godley.
