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.

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.

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.

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.

Joe Musgrove was fantastic in his long-awaited Pirates’ debut on Friday, tossing seven scoreless innings in an 8-1 victory over the Cardinals.

Musgrove’s season debut was delayed due to a shoulder issue from the spring, but he proved to be worth the wait on Friday. He scattered five hits while walking none and striking out seven. He was incredibly efficient in the process, throwing 50 out of his 67 pitches for strikes. According to STATS, he’s the first pitcher to throw at least seven innings on fewer than 70 pitches since Greg Maddux did it on September 18, 2008. Musgrove had the look of a fantasy sleeper after coming over to Pittsburgh in the Gerrit Cole deal and needs to be picked up in mixed leagues after this sort of outing.
May 25 - 10:06 PM

John Gant yielded three runs over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Pirates on Friday.

Gant held the Cardinals scoreless through five innings, but he got into trouble in the sixth. He fanned seven and walked none in the loss. With Alex Reyes (elbow) due to join the Cardinals’ rotation next week and Carlos Martinez (lat) likely due back sometime in June, this figures to be Gant’s last start in the majors for a while.
May 25 - 10:05 PM

Greg Holland gave up two runs on three hits in one inning of work Friday against the Pirates.

Holland served up an RBI triple to Jordy Mercer and an RBI single to Josh Harrison. He’s now allowed two runs in four straight appearances, which gives him a disturbing 9.45 ERA and 2.63 WHIP over 18 appearances this season. Needless to say, he’s not going to see high-leverage situations anytime soon.
