Brandon McCarthy struck out nine batters over six innings of one-run ball in a 7-1 win over the Reds on Saturday.

Making his home debut in pinstripes, McCarthy was in control all afternoon, scattering six hits while walking none. The only run scored on a solo homer from Chris Heisey in the fifth inning. At the cost of Vidal Nuno, the 31-year-old was a solid addition to patch the injury-riddled rotation in New York, but he's a fringe option in mixed leagues now that he's calling the AL East home.

Jesse Hahn made a statement in his season debut Saturday, holding the Astros scoreless over 6 2/3 innings in the Athletics' 2-0 win.

Hahn gave up just three hits and walked two in the game. He began the season at Triple-A Nashville after struggling in spring, but he posted a 2.04 ERA in four starts in the minors prior to being recalled. With Chris Bassitt on the disabled list, Hahn will keep his rotation spot for at least the next few weeks. If he pitches well, his stay in the A's rotation will very likely extend beyond Bassitt's return.

Avisail Garcia (hamstring) is not in the White Sox lineup Saturday against the Orioles.

He's not expected to play on Sunday either. The White Sox are off on Monday, which means the earliest we'd see him is Tuesday. Garcia tweaked his hamstring in Friday night's loss. "It’s a little tight," said manager Robin Ventura. "I don’t think it’s a DL situation there but he definitely did something going down the line there." Jerry Sands will DH and bat seventh Saturday with Garcia sidelined.

Anthony DeSclafani (oblique) felt discomfort in his side during Friday's rehab start for Low-A Dayton.

He reported feeling a "sensation" in his injured oblique after throwing 77 pitches over five innings. "We’re really doing everything we can to avoid a setback," said manager Bryan Price. "He was good until the last inning or so, and then it was an issue." DeSclafani was expected to join the Reds for his next start but that seems unlikely now.

Raisel Iglesias is in danger of missing Sunday's start against the Pirates with a right shoulder injury.

Iglesias said he felt a "pinch" on Friday and was examined by team doctors. This could be a recurrence of the shoulder fatigue that plagued him late last season. Louisville right-hander Tim Adleman was scratched from his scheduled start Saturday in case the Reds need him to fill in on Sunday. Iglesias' first five starts have yielded mixed results. His 3.49 ERA is impressive but opponents are hitting .296 against him with four homers in 115 at-bats. Fantasy owners should prepare to be without him on Sunday.

Yasiel Puig is not in the Dodgers' lineup Saturday against the Padres.

He'll get the day off after laboring through a dismal 0-for-4 showing on Friday. Puig has watched his average fall from .347 to .250 over his last 10 games. Enrique Hernandez will fill in at right field and bat sixth.

Jordan Zimmermann continued his domination of the American League on Saturday, improviing to 5-0 on the season with seven innings of one-run ball against the Twins.

Zimmermann scattered six hits on the afternoon and punched out seven without issuing a free pass. The only damage against him on the afternoon came on a solo home run off the bat of Byung-ho Park in the fourth inning. He now boasts a tremendous 0.55 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 23/7 K/BB ratio over 33 innings on the season. He'll look to continue his impressive run when he takes the hill against the Rangers at home on Friday.

Devin Mesoraco remains out of the Reds starting lineup on Saturday.

It sounds as though Reds manager Bryan Price wanted to give his young backstop a few days off to clear his head after starting the season in a .140/.218/.160 funk with only one RBI. Tucker Barnhart is behind the plate again on Saturday and batting seventh for the Reds against Francisco Liriano and the Pirates.

Joe Panik (groin) is not in the Giants starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Mets.

Panik suffered a minor groin injury during the ninth inning of Friday's game and will be held out on Saturday as a precautionary measure. Kelby Tomlinson will start in his place and bat eight against opposing right-hander Jacob deGrom.

Saturday's contest between the Cubs and Braves was postponed due to rain.

No makeup date has been announced. Make sure to avoid both of these clubs when making your DFS lineups for the early slate on Saturday.

Adam Conley fired 7 2/3 no-hit innings in Friday’s 6-3 win over the Brewers.

Marlins manager Don Mattingly made the bold call to pull Conley after 116 pitches. Jonathan Lucroy eventually broke up the no-hitter with a one-out single off Jose Urena in the bottom of the ninth. While Conley didn’t get a chance to finish off the no-hitter, it was still a very encouraging outing. The southpaw walked four and struck out seven while inducing 14 swinging strikes. While he’s been a bit up and down in the early part of the season, he continues to show why he deserves consideration in mixed fantasy leagues. Conley lines up for a start against the Diamondbacks at home next week.

Justin Bour had a monster night Friday against the Brewers, going 3-for-4 with two home runs and a career-high five RBI.

Bour slugged a three-run homer in the first inning before adding an RBI double in the third inning and a solo homer in the sixth. This was his second career multi-homer again. The 27-year-old entered the day with one home run through his first 70 plate appearances. Perhaps this will finally get him going.
