Albert Pujols went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's blowout loss to the Rangers.

It's strange to see an elite hitter like Pujols toil below the Mendoza Line, but at least the power has continued to show up. He has four homers in his last six games and is hitting 7-for-24 (.292) over that same stretch. The 36-year-old is no longer a perennial .300 hitter; however, he's far better than he has been thus far in 2016. Only Kyle Seager entered Saturday's slate of games with a lower BABIP than Pujols' .143 BABIP through his first 24 games.

Rougned Odor tripled three times and scored twice in Saturday's win over the Angels.

Odor stood atop the order for the Rangers again, which is a good sign, and set the table nicely with a three-pack of doubles. Greedy fantasy owners likely said that it would've been nice to see him knock in a few runs. That's perhaps the only downfall of his new home in the lead-off role. He's hitting .264/.312/.448 with three homers and four stolen bases. The 22-year-old has been a top-10 fantasy second baseman this month and has the potential to be much more than that.

Derek Holland scattered four hits in six scoreless innings on Saturday against the Angels, picking up his third win of the year.

It’s been a balancing act all year for the lefty. He tossed six scoreless and walked no one, yet only struck out one and gave up a ton of fly balls. That maps onto his 2.48 ERA and 5.59 K/9 this year, and he’s really benefiting from a .227 BABIP, which is almost 70-points lower than his career average. In other words, Holland was good in Saturday’s win and he’s only allowed five earned runs in his last 24 innings, but everything about his profile screams heavy regression. He’ll try to continue to outrun that statistical inevitability in a tough road matchup against the Blue Jays in his next scheduled start.

The Reds will promote Tim Adleman from Triple-A Louisville ahead of Sunday's game against the Pirates.

He'll be making his major league debut in place of Raisel Iglesias, who is out with a shoulder injury. Adleman was scratched from Saturday's start in preparation for Sunday. The 28-year-old is 2-0 this year with a 4.24 ERA in three starts for Louisville.

Matt Shoemaker experienced The Bad Start on Saturday against the Rangers, getting torched for seven runs on a whopping nine hits in just 2 1/3 innings.

Shoemaker gave up hits to seven of the eight batters he faced in the bottom of the third inning, finally getting replaced after Mitch Moreland launched a three-run shot to right field and the red-hot Elvis Andrus immediately followed with a double. The 29-year-old picked up his fourth loss of the young season, and the fantasy darling that posted a 3.04 ERA in 2014 now feels like a completely different person. He owns a 9.15 ERA in 20 2/3 innings, while his walk rate now sits at 4.35 BB/9. It’s ugly all around. Should he get another start, Shoemaker will face off against the Rays at home next Friday.
Apr 30 - 11:43 PM

David Phelps got the closing nod with A.J. Ramos unavailable in Saturday's 7-5 win over the Brewers and navigated an uneventful inning to pick up his first save since 2014.

Phelps has been a high-leverage reliever for the Marlins, so it's not surprising to see him get the opportunity to close over Kyle Barraclough. The right-hander rewarded manager Don Mattingly's trust with a perfect ninth inning. As with many former starters who transition to the bullpen, he's seen his velocity and strikeout rates spike. The 29-year-old has 16 strikeouts in 15 innings and now owns a 1.20 ERA.

Jose Abreu went 2-for-5 with two RBI, including the game-winner in the ninth, as the White Sox outlasted the Orioles 8-7 on Saturday.

Abreu had an RBI single in the eighth to help the Sox stage a comeback, and it was his two-out RBI hit in the ninth that gave them the win. Abreu's sluggish start had some concerned, but the first baseman has multi-hit games in four of his last five contests to raise his average to .229. The power is still notably absent -- he's hit just three homers, and none since April 19 -- but there's no reason for alarm just yet, especially in light of the recent improvements.
Apr 30 - 11:40 PM

Raisel Iglesias (shoulder) has been scratched from Sunday's start against the Pirates.

The Reds weren't taking any chances after Iglesias said he felt a "pinch" in his throwing shoulder on Friday. As expected, the Reds will call up Tim Adleman from Triple-A Louisville to start in his place. For now it looks like Iglesias will only have to miss one start, but we wouldn't totally rule out a trip to the disabled list. He's been dealing with shoulder issues on and off since September.
