Pedro Hernandez will be given another start following the demotion of Liam Hendriks.

Hernandez allowed three runs over five frames in a start on April 7 and then threw 4 1/3 innings of one-run relief on Friday. He left the relief outing with a left calf strain but reported improvement with the ailment on Saturday. Wednesday is looking likely for Hernandez's next start, though the Twins haven't decided for sure.

Yasiel Puig went 4-for-5 and became the first player in four years to triple three times in a game Friday as the Dodgers topped the Giants 8-0.

The Twins' Denard Span was the last player with three triples in a game, doing so against the Tigers on June 29, 2010. The next to last was Rafael Furcal in 2002. Before that, it was Lance Johnson in 1995. So, obviously, it's a very rare feat. In fact, no Dodger had done it since at least 1901. Puig now has eight triples this year, leaving him two behind teammate Dee Gordon (who also had one tonight) for the major league lead.

Josh Rutledge went 2-for-4 with four RBI and a run scored in an 8-1 win over the Pirates on Friday.

Rutledge got the Rockies on the board with an RBI double in the third inning and later had a bases-clearing double in a seven-run seventh. The 25-year-old has hit .308 with three home runs and 16 RBI over 53 games this season and should get regular playing time over the next two weeks with Troy Tulowitzki on the disabled list. He should be a useful fantasy shortstop in the meantime.

Billy Butler hit a pinch-hit go-ahead two-run homer in a 6-4 win over the Indians on Friday night.

The clutch blast came with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was just his fourth home run of the season. While the 28-year-old played the role of hero for the Royals on this night, he's been one of the game's most disappointing players with a weak .266/.320/.353 batting line.

Carlos Santana clubbed two homers and knocked in three runs in a loss to the Royals on Friday.

Santana popped a solo blast in the fourth inning and added a two-run shot for good measure in the sixth. With three multi-hit games in his last four, his batting average is now up to .222 for the year, his high-water mark since early April. He's also up to 17 home runs and 45 RBI on the year.

Lucas Duda delivered a go-ahead two-run homer in a 3-2 win over the Brewers on Friday.

The Mets entered the top of the ninth inning down 3-0, but David Wright knocked in the first run with an RBI single and Duda followed with a long blast to right-center field. The 28-year-old has now gone deep three times in his last four games and is up to 17 home runs and 53 RBI on the year. It looks like the Mets made the right choice between him and Ike Davis.

Neftali Feliz notched his first save since 2011 in Friday's win over the Athletics.

Back in the closer role after the Joakim Soria trade, Feliz worked around a hit and a walk to deliver a scoreless ninth inning. The 26-year-old doesn't have the same raw stuff he had prior to undergoing Tommy John surgery, so we're a bit skeptical about his ability to keep the job, but the Rangers don't have much to lose at this point. Pick him up in all formats.

Brad Hand absolutely dominated the Astros offense on Friday, hurling 7 1/3 shutout innings while allowing just three hits.

Hand punched out four on the night while walking two. The 24-year-old now owns a 4.19 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 36/24 K/BB ratio over 53 2/3 innings on the season. He remains an unattractive fantasy option when he takes on the Nationals at home on Wednesday.

Jose Abreu launched his 30th home run of the season on Friday, powering the White Sox to a 9-5 victory over the Twins in Minnesota.

The White Sox came out of the gate firing in this one, with a pair of singles to start the game followed by Abreu’s three-run blast off Kevin Correia. He finished the night 2-for-5 with three RBI and a pair of runs scored, and is now hitting .292/.341/.620 with 30 long balls and 77 RBI in his first 353 big league at-bats. He's easily the favorite to take home Rookie of the Year honors in the American League.
Jul 25 - 11:13 PM

David Price struck out 10 batters and yielded three runs over eight innings Friday in a win over the Red Sox.

Price was on the losing side of things before the Rays rallied for four runs in the seventh inning. The red-hot Rays have now won eight straight games, so a Price trade is looking more unlikely by the moment. The southpaw has now gone at least eight innings in eight out of his last nine starts. His ERA went up a tick from 3.06 to 3.08 in the win, but he continues to be money for fantasy owners.
Jul 25 - 10:57 PM

Domonic Brown homered and drove home three runs, powering the Phillies to a 9-5 victory over the Diamondbacks on Friday.

Brown delivered an RBI groundout in the first inning, then really broke things open with a two-run shot off Evan Marshall in the seventh. It has been a very disappointing season to this point for Brown, who is slashing just .231/.281/.341 with seven homers and 49 RBI.
Jul 25 - 10:42 PM

Denard Span went 4-for-5 with an RBI single, a run scored, and a stolen base Friday against the Reds.

Span now has back-to-back four-hit games. Chicago's Emilio Bonifacio is the only other player in MLB to do that this season. The 30-year-old is now up to 18 steals, just two shy of his total from all of last season. He should be owned in most mixed leagues at this point.
