Lonnie Chisenhall went 3-for-4 with a double and a steal as the Indians' right fielder on Friday.

Chisenhall will get a chance to take some of David Murphy's at-bats, though how much playing he receives will hinge on what happens with Nick Swisher following his return. ideally, Chisenhall would be in there pretty regularly against right-handers the rest of the way before the Indians have to decide whether to tend him a contract for 2016.

Taijuan Walker pitched a one-hitter and struck out 11 as the Mariners beat the Twins 6-1 on Friday.

The lone hit was Miguel Sano's solo homer in the fourth inning. It's Walker's first career complete-game victory (he had one other complete game, but it was an eight-inning loss to the Blue Jays last season). He might be prone to bouts with inconsistency, but he should still be worth riding in mixed leagues the rest of the way.
Aug 1 - 2:47 AM

Tommy Milone gave up four runs and 11 hits in six innings Friday in a loss to the Mariners.

This makes three subpar starts in a row for Milone, taking his ERA from 2.83 to 3.77. It'd seem to be time for the Twins to give Trevor May another shot at the back of their rotation.
Aug 1 - 2:45 AM

Nelson Cruz finished 4-for-5 with a homer and a double versus the Twins in Friday's win.

After a month and a half of little production, Cruz has picked it back up again since the All-Star break, hitting six homers in his last 15 games. He remains a particularly strong DFS play whenever the Mariners are facing a mediocre lefty.
Aug 1 - 2:43 AM

Jesus Montero went 2-for-4 and homered Friday against the Twins.

Montero is up to serve as a starter against left-handers, but he figures to get the opportunity to overtake Logan Morrison at first base in short order. He's earned it with his performance in Triple-A this year.
Aug 1 - 2:41 AM

Michael Wacha shut out the Rockies for seven innings, striking out seven, in a victory Friday.

Wacha is the fifth pitcher to reach 12 wins this season, but this the first time he's pitched at least seven scoreless innings in a start. Randy Choate and Seth Maness finished the six-hit shutout tonight.
Aug 1 - 2:39 AM

Matt Carpenter had another strong game from the leadoff spot Friday, going 2-for-4 with a homer, a double and a walk against the Rockies.

With the way it's worked out the last two days, it looks like we'll be seeing Carpenter batting first and Kolten Wong hitting third for the foreseeable future. It should help the fantasy value of both. Wong went 2-fo-r5 with two runs scored and an RBI tonight.
Aug 1 - 2:37 AM

Cubs acquired RHP Dan Haren and cash considerations from the Marlins for RHP Ivan Pineyro and INF Elliot Soto.

The veteran right-hander was enjoying a resurgence with the Marlins, registering a 3.42 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 88/25 K/BB ratio over 129 innings in his 21 starts. He brings another strong veteran presence to the Cubs rotation, and has proven to be a highly-capable performer in the postseason throughout the years.
