Nelson Cruz posted a single, double and a run scored over four at-bats in Saturday's loss against the Astros.

The multi-hit game was the 10th of the month of Cruz, who is hitting .333 (25-for-75) with eight doubles, two homers and 16 RBI across 21 games in June. While he is hitting for high average, he has no homers over his past 17 outings dating back to June 4. That's about the only complaint fantasy owners can have with Cruz.

Sam Gaviglio allowed two earned runs, six hits and three walks with three strikeouts over six innings in a loss against the Astros on Saturday.

Gaviglio has managed a 3-2 record with a 3.38 ERA through nine appearances (eight starts). It's uncertain what his role will be once Hisashi Iwakuma (shoulder) is ready to return, but the right-hander certainly has proven he belongs at the big league level in some capacity.

Josh Reddick finished 1-for-4 with a two-run home run off of Seattle's Sam Gaviglio in Saturday's road win.

Reddick missed time last week after spending time on the 7-day disabled list, but he has hit safely in all four games since his return. He is 8-for-17 with three doubles, a triple and two homers over the past four outings, so obviously he is not dealing with any ill effects of his head injury.

Brian McCann finished 1-for-4 with a double and three RBI in Saturday's game against the Mariners.

McCann continues to be a consistent run producer, posting 13 RBI in April 12 RBI in May and 15 so far in the month of June. He has a .268/.351/.475 slash line, as he continues to be a solid fantasy contributor even in his 12th MLB season.

Lance McCullers allowed one earned run, four hits and no walks with eight strikeouts over five innings in a win Saturday in Seattle.

McCullers threw 51 of his 76 pitches for strikes in his return after a two-week absence due to a lower back injury. He ran his record to 7-1 while pushing his ERA down to 2.53. He continues to be successful this season because he is keeping the ball in the yard, allowing just one home run over his past 46 1/3 innings.

J.C. Ramirez kept the Red Sox to one run over six innings Saturday, leading the Angels to a 6-3 victory.

Ramirez gave up just four hits, one of which was a Mitch Moreland solo home run for the only Sox run against him. He also didn't walk a batter while striking out five. A lot of the shine has worn off the 28-year-old since his surprising start to the season, but he's still 7-5 with a passable 4.38 ERA in 17 appearances. Another tough test is on tap for Thursday, when the Angels travel "across town" to face the Dodgers in an interleague battle.

Mitch Moreland hit his 10th home run of the season in a loss to the Angels on Saturday.

Moreland's solo dong off Angels starter J.C. Ramirez tied the game at 1-1 in the second, but the Sox wouldn't muster much more en route to the loss. Moreland now has 38 RBI and 37 runs scored to go with those 10 homers. He's hitting .266/.359/.463 through 69 games in his first season with the Boston club.

Eric Young Jr. had an RBI double, a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's win over the Red Sox.

Young poked a run-scoring double down the right field line in the fourth inning to give the Angels a lead they wouldn't relinquish. The steal was his seventh in nine tries this year, all of which have come since the 32-year-old was promoted in late May to fill in during Mike Trout's absence. While he could be shipped back out when Trout returns, Young has performed admirably for the Halos, batting .289/.379/.461 in 24 games.
Jun 25 - 12:16 AM

Kole Calhoun went 2-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's win over the Red Sox.

The month of June has been kind to the 29-year-old, who now has 12 multi-hit performances in 22 games this month. On Saturday, he singled and scored in the first inning before driving in a run with a single in the ninth. A brutal start the year has Calhoun's line at a still-underwhelming .247/.325/.387, but anyone paying attention can see that the outfielder is on the right track these days.
Jun 25 - 12:11 AM

David Price allowed three runs -- two earned -- over six innings in a loss to the Angels on Saturday.

Price gave up six hits and a walk while striking out five in the largely uneventful start. And even with the loss, there are positives to take from the start that weren't present in recent outings -- mostly, that he walked just one without giving up a homer. He's now given up three runs or fewer in five of his six starts, but a bad game against the Yankees and the fact that he hasn't been terribly efficient makes his 4.76 ERA look worse than maybe it has been in actuality. A date with the Twins on Thursday could cure what ails for Price.

Josh Harrison doubled, homered and scored two runs in the Pirates' 7-3 win over the Cardinals on Saturday.

Harrison got busy early, doubling into the left field corner in the first inning and scoring on a Josh Bell single. He drove himself in in the fifth inning, just barely clearing the left field wall for a solo homer, his ninth dinger of the year. The 29-year-old also plated a second run when he was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the sixth. Harrison doesn't have a permanent home on the diamond, but he's not leaving the lineup any time soon, hitting .294/.374/.463 in 72 games this year.
Jun 24 - 11:58 PM

Matt Carpenter hit his 14th home run of the year in a loss to the Pirates on Saturday.

Carpenter led off the bottom of the first inning with a solo shot off Pirates ace Gerrit Cole. Things went downhill from there for the Cards. The hit was his only one in three at-bats, leaving his line at .236/.371/.471 through 69 games. The 14 homers are nice, and he's still getting on base at a very good clip, but he's now two for his last 22 after a good stretch in early June.
Jun 24 - 11:53 PM

Andrew McCutchen went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in a win over the Cardinals on Saturday.

His rise from the ashes continues, as he's now turned in multi-hit games in 10 of 21 games this month. That's good for a .387 average, with six homers, 20 RBI and 19 runs scored in June. In total, he's hitting .269/.351/.485. Reports of his death appear to have been greatly exaggerated.
Jun 24 - 11:50 PM

Jordy Mercer homered and collected three RBI in Saturday's win over the Cardinals.

Mercer hit a two-run shot off Cardinals starter Lance Lynn in the fourth inning, his seventh homer of the year, and he added an RBI groundout in the sixth. The 30-year-old is quietly on pace for the best full offensive season of his career, batting .275/.349/.424 in 72 games. He's got 28 RBI and 29 runs scored to go with those seven homers to date.
Jun 24 - 11:46 PM

Allen Cordoba left Saturday's game against the Tigers with a left hand contusion.

He exited after taking a pitch off his left hand in the third inning. Chase d'Arnaud pinch-ran for Cordoba and replaced him at shortstop. Until we hear otherwise, consider Cordoba day-to-day.
