Carlos Santana clubbed his ninth home run of the season as the Phillies fell to the Blue Jays on Friday night.

Santana also drew a walk in the ballgame, finishing the night 1-for-3. His two-run blast off of Blue Jays' starter Sam Gaviglio pulled the Phillies to within three runs at 6-3 in the sixth inning. He's now hitting .205/.329/.439 with nine long balls and 32 RBI on the year. He's still best deployed in leagues that utilize on-base percentage rather than batting average, as he continues to be a serious drain in that category.

Zach Eflin struggled in Friday's loss to the Blue Jays, surrendering six runs (five earned) on nine hits over his 4 2/3 innings.

On the plus side, he did manage to strike out seven on the night while walking only one. He also chipped in offensively, clubbing his first big league home run. The Blue Jays jumped on him for three runs in the first inning, then finished the job with three more to chase him in the fifth, two of those on a mighty blast by Justin Smoak. Eflin now sits at 1-1 on the season with a 3.27 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 24/7 K/BB ratio in 22 innings on the season. He'll take on the Dodgers his next time out in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Nicholas Castellanos went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles as the Tigers rallied late to beat the White Sox 5-4 on Friday night.

The Tigers entered the eighth inning trailing 4-2, but quickly turned the tables on former teammate Bruce Rondon. Jose Iglesias started with a leadoff double then Leonys Martin drove him in with a one-out RBI single. Castellanos followed with a game-tying RBI double, and he came around to score the go-ahead run on a single by Jeimer Candelario. Castellanos has been sizzling at the plate, slashing .333/.380/.522 with five homers and 27 RBI on the year.

Leonys Martin had a nice night at the dish in a come-from-behind victory over the White Sox on Friday, going 2-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored.

Martin also had an RBI single in the eighth inning, driving in the first of three runs in the frame that would propel the Tigers to victory. He has settled in nicely as the Tigers' leadoff hitter this season, slashing .260/.321/.435 with five homers and 16 RBI. The one place that he was supposed to be a major contributor though, stolen bases, he has struggled to get anything going. Martin has successfully stolen just one base in four attempts on the season.
May 25 - 10:22 PM

Shane Greene locked down his 12th save of the season on Friday, working a scoreless ninth inning to protect a one-run lead against the White Sox.

He allowed a leadoff single to Yolmer Sanchez to begin the ninth, but he was erased on a double play. Greene then struck out Daniel Palka to end the contest. He has now made good on 12 of his first 15 save chances on the season while posting a 3.86 ERA and 1.29 WHIP. The ratios and strikeout numbers aren't elite, but he's secure in his role as the Tigers' closer, and that in and of itself carries mixed league value.
May 25 - 10:19 PM

Mike Fiers wasn't at his best on Friday night, allowing four runs on nine hits over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the White Sox.

Fiers also issued three free passes while striking out four. The White Sox got to him for a pair of runs in the first inning, then added on single runs in the fourth and fifth, the last of which was a solo homer by Tim Anderson. The veteran right-hander now sports a 4.78 ERA and 1.33 WHIP on the season, performing roughly as anticipated. He remains an unappealing fantasy option with a matchup against the Angels on tap for Wednesday.
May 25 - 10:16 PM

Tim Anderson went 3-for-4 and belted his eighth home run of the season as the White Sox fell to the Tigers on Friday night in Motown.

Anderson delivered a run-scoring single in the first inning, then tagged Tigers' starter Mike Fiers for a solo shot in the fifth that increased the White Sox' lead to 4-2. With the three-hit attack, he's now hitting .240/.304/.415 with eight homers, 14 RBI and 11 stolen bases. He's never going to hit for a high average, but his power/speed combination keeps him as a very useful mixed league commodity.
May 25 - 10:13 PM

Reynaldo Lopez delivered another strong start on Friday, allowing just two runs on five hits over seven innings in a no-decision against the Tigers.

Lopez struck out three and walked three on the night. He departed with a 4-2 lead and in line for his second victory of the season, but the White Sox' bullpen was unable to oblige. He now owns a fantastic 2.93 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 42/26 K/BB ratio in 61 1/3 innings on the season. He should be owned and started in all fantasy formats for Wednesday's start against the Indians in Cleveland.
