Giants re-signed RHP Tim Lincecum to a two-year, $35 million contract.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says the righty will receive a full no-trade clause. Lincecum might have been able to net a long-term deal somewhere, but he preferred a short deal as he attempts to re-establish his value and he still managed to get a big chunk of change. The right-hander has posted a 4.76 ERA and 1.39 WHIP over 383 2/3 innings the past two seasons, but he's struck out a batter per inning and remained durable, so he has value even if he doesn't rebound.

Jack Flaherty delivered another terrific start in Sunday's victory over the Cubs, scattering two hits and three walks over five shutout innings.

The right-hander racked up seven strikeouts on the night. The only thing that he didn't do well in this one, was be efficient with his pitches, needing 97 pitches (52 strikes) to get through his five frames. Through 10 starts with the Cardinals, he's now 4-2 with an outstanding 2.66 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 55/14 K/BB ratio across 50 2/3 innings. He'll look to keep it rolling in a difficult matchup against the Brewers in Milwaukee on Friday.

Javier Baez was removed from Sunday's game against the Cardinals after he was hit by a pitch in the left elbow.

Baez was drilled by Cardinals' starter Jack Flaherty in the third inning. He was down on the ground and in considerable pain before walking off with the training staff. He'll presumably head for X-rays to ensure that nothing is broken. Look for the Cubs to provide an update on his status as soon as one is available.

Nomar Mazara (wrist) returned to the starting lineup Sunday against the Rockies and he finished 2-for-4 with a walk, two runs scored and three RBI.

Mazara was scratched from the lineup on Friday and he did not play Saturday due to a sore left wrist. The injury was not hindering him in the interleague series finale, as he was sharp at the dish. Feel free to plug him back into the active lineup for the new week since he showed no ill-effects of the injury.

Eric Thames went 2-for-4 with two homers and four RBI in a loss to the Phillies on Sunday.

Thames also walked. The 35-year-old power-hitter hit a solo shot off of Aaron Nola in the top of the first, and he brought Milwaukee new life with a three-run shot off of Hector Naris in the bottom of the ninth to make it a 10-9 game. He now has 9 homers in just 27 games this year, and his OPS bumps up to .973 in that time frame.

Maikel Franco went 2-for-4 with a homer and four RBI in a 10-9 victory over the Brewers on Sunday.

There was plenty of offense to be found in this one, and Franco provided much of it for the Phillies. His homer was a two-run shot off of Chase Anderson with one out, and it ups his total on the season to nine. He picked up two more RBI on a single in the seventh, giving the third baseman 36 on the season. Franco's overall line of .247/.292/.424 still leaves a lot to be desired, but because of his bat speed, he's capable of games like this. There just haven't been enough over the past few seasons.

Nicholas Castellanos went 1-for-3 with a homer in a 3-1 victory over the White Sox on Sunday.

Castellanos also walked. The homer was a two-run shot off of James Shields in the first inning, and it gave Blaine Hardy and the Tigers pitching staff all the run support it would need. It's been a strong season for the infielder-turned-outfielder, and he now has nine homers to go along with a .310/.353/.502 line on the 2018 season over 70 games.
Jun 17 - 5:50 PM

Eugenio Suarez went 1-for-5 with a two-run homer to help the Reds to an 8-6 victory on Sunday over the Pirates.

The homer came off of Joe Musgrove, and it gives the underrated third baseman 14 on the season. Somewhat quietly, Suarez now has his line on the year up to .297/.384/.569, and the 14 homers and 52 RBI are more impressive when you remember he missed a couple of weeks while on the disabled list. He's also homered in back-to-back games, and his hitting streak extends to eight.

Hector Rondon earned his fourth save Sunday in the Astros' series finale against the Royals.

Ken Giles worked the eighth inning in this one, to give you an idea of where the Astros' bullpen roles currently stand. Rondon has bullrushed his way into the closer role with a dominant 1.38 ERA and 31/6 K/BB ratio in 26 total innings this season. He hasn't allowed a run in over a month. Giles is still worth owning, and so is Chris Devenski, but Rondon appears to be the preferred ninth-inning man right now for manager A.J. Hinch.
Jun 17 - 5:17 PM

Julio Teheran pitched six no-hit innings while striking out 11 in a 4-1 victory over the Padres on Sunday.

Teheran did walk three, and his 95 pitches through six innings made it impossible for him to finish the no-no, especially considering it was his first start off the disabled list. Nevertheless, it’s still a dominating effort from the right-hander, and the Padres were unable to do anything with him while Teheran showed the stuff that made him one of the most intriguing young starters not long ago. The effort lower’s Teheran’s ERA to 3.97 on the season, and he’s now struck out 67 hitters over 77 innings over 14 starts. He’ll look to continue this into his next start, but that has yet to be scheduled. It likely comes at the end of the weekend against the Orioles or next Monday against the Reds.

Carlos Correa went 2-for-3 with a homer and three RBI in the Astros' 7-4 win over the Royals on Sunday.

Correa opened the game's scoring with an RBI single in the top of the first, belted a solo homer in the top of the eighth, and tallied his third RBI of the afternoon on a run-scoring sac fly in the top of the ninth. The 23-year-old shortstop boasts an .855 OPS, 13 home runs, and 47 RBI in 245 at-bats this season for the defending-champion Astros, who have rattled off 11 straight victories -- 10 of them on the road. It's the second-longest winning streak in franchise history.

Michael Taylor stole four bases and scored two runs on three hits in a loss to the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Taylor had the green light early and often against Toronto, and the four steals upped his season total to 21 on the season on 23 attempts. It's also nice to see the right-hander have some hits drop, although the three hits only raise his season average to .236. Still, with the four steals the athletic outfielder is on pace to steal 50 bases, and his ability to swipe makes him fantasy relevant.
