Dan Haren was blasted for six runs in 3 1/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Rockies.

Ouch. Haren struck out five and walked none, but gave up seven hits, including his league-leading 19th home run of the season. With his ERA now at an eye-popping 6.15 through 15 starts, the struggling right-hander may soon be at risk for losing his rotation spot.

Andrew Cashner was scratched from Sunday's start against the Padres due to a blister on his finger.

Cashner pitched well despite dealing with the blister during his most recent start and now he'll miss a matchup against his former team. Justin Nicolino will start in his place.

Clayton Richard was outstanding in Saturday's victory over the Marlins, allowing eight hits and a walk over seven scoreless innings.

Richard struck out three on the night. He wasn't completely dominant and allowed plenty of baserunners, but was able to bear down and make big pitches when he needed to and didn't allow the Marlins to mount any serious threats. The veteran southpaw will bring a 3.51 ERA and 1.62 WHIP into Saturday's matchup against the Dodgers in Los Angeles. He could be worth a look as a spot starter in deeper mixed leagues.

Noah Syndergaard turned in a dominant start Saturday against the Phillies by tossing seven innings of one-run ball as part of a 12-1 blowout victory.

Syndergaard actually trailed early after giving up a solo homer to Freddy Galvis in the top of the third inning, but he shut down the Phillies’ lineup from there. He gave up just two hits on the night while walking two and striking out seven. He retired 13 out of the final 14 batters he faced. After a long stretch of uncertainty, Syndergaard has turned the corner with back-to-back dominant starts. He now owns an impressive 2.55 ERA and 184/34 K/BB ratio over 155 innings. A crucial start against the Marlins awaits him next week.

Jose Quintana was brilliant in Saturday's victory over the Mariners, striking out eight over 7 2/3 innings of one-run ball.

Quintana scattered five hits and one walk on the evening. The White Sox have struggled to provide him with run support for most of the season, and on a night where he didn't need much they poured on nine runs for him. Now 11-9 on the season, he'll head into Thursday's start against the Twins in Minnesota with a fantastic 2.77 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 150/39 K/BB ratio over 172 1/3 innings on the season.

Brandon Belt was a late scratch from Saturday's lineup against the Braves due to a stiff neck.

It's probably safe to call him day-to-day. Conor Gillaspie will fill in at first base and bat fifth.

Blake Snell exited Saturday's start against the Astros in the bottom of the fourth inning after he was hit in the left foot by a comebacker.

Snell gave up four runs on nine hits before exiting and was replaced by Danny Farquhar. The Rays should pass along an update soon.

Shin-Soo Choo (forearm) said Saturday that he hopes to make it back for the postseason.

Choo underwent surgery earlier this month to repair a fracture in his forearm and is expected to miss around eight weeks. Going by this timeline, the earliest he could return is October 12. However, he's holding out hope that he could be available for the ALDS, which begins on October 6. "I have a plan, I have a goal, I have the confidence," said Choo. "I still have a chance. I know the [regular] season is over but it’s still not over for 2016. If I hit in seven [weeks], maybe [earlier]." The Rangers signed Carlos Gomez after his injury and have installed him as their regular left fielder.

Lucas Giolito will start Sunday against the Rockies.

As expected. The Nats needed someone to fill in for Reynaldo Lopez, who was just sent down to the minor leagues. Giloito's first stint in the majors didn't go as well as hoped but the right-hander still boasts impressive velocity and a devastating curve ball. There's no guarantee Giolito will get more than a turn or two with Joe Ross (shoulder) and Stephen Strasburg (elbow) both on the comeback trail.

Hunter Pence (hamstring) is not in the Giants' lineup Saturday against the Braves.

Pence hasn't played since leaving Thursday's game with hamstring tightness. Gorkys Hernandez will draw the start in right field Saturday while batting eighth against Braves righty Mike Foltynewicz. The Giants are hoping Pence will return for Sunday's series finale.

Charlie Blackmon went 3-for-6 and clobbered a pair of home runs as the Rockies dispatched of the Nationals 9-4 in 11 innings in Washington on Saturday afternoon.

Blackmon's solo shot off of Alex Cole in the third inning opened the scoring in the contest. He then blasted a game-changing two-run homer off of Yusmeiro Petit in the 11th inning that proved to be the difference in the ballgame. Blackmon finished the afternoon 3-for-6 with three runs scored and three RBI and is now hitting .318/,378/.540 with 23 long balls, 63 RBI and 15 stolen bases on the season.

Bryce Harper was ejected for arguing balls and strikes Saturday against the Rockies.

Harper got his money's worth on this one. He slammed his helmet down right in front of home plate umpire Mike Winters after a called strike three in the 10th inning and was immediately tossed. Before his outburst, Harper went 1-for-4 with a walk and an RBI double. Chris Heisey replaced him in right field. Harper will almost certainly be fined for his behavior and could even be looking at a short suspension. This was Harper's eighth career ejection and his second of the season.
