Julio Teheran survived three solo homers in allowing three runs over 6 1/3 innings Monday in a victory over the Angels.

Andrelton Simmons, Albert Pujols and Luis Valbuena took him deep, but Teheran had six runs to work with tonight. He earned his fourth win to even up his record. His ERA sits at 4.82.

Ricky Nolasco fell to 2-5 after giving up six runs -- two earned -- in 2 2/3 innings Monday against the Braves.

Nolasco has been reliable since arriving from the Twins last summer, but he ran into all kinds of trouble in the third inning tonight and couldn't escape. Even before Cliff Pennington's error, he had giving up three hits and a walk. The Braves collected two more hits afterwards to take a 6-0 lead before Nolasco was finally pulled. He'll try to bounce back against his old teammates in Minnesota this weekend.

Albert Pujols hit a solo homer Monday in a losing cause against the Braves.

Pujols isn't a great hitter any longer, but he's had great RBI numbers hitting behind Mike Trout. That ends now, for the next six weeks at least. He might not be of any use in mixed leagues while Trout is out.

Steven Souza went 4-for-5 with two doubles and four runs scored in the Rays' 10-8 win over the Rangers on Monday.

If it was the hand and wrist injuries that cause Souza's slump during the first three weeks of May, he seems to be over them now; he's 11-for-23 with three homers and four walks in his last six games. He's back looking like a mixed-league asset again now.

Starting against the Rangers after pitching in relief Sunday, Erasmo Ramirez gave up four runs in 2 1/3 innings on Monday.

Ramirez shouldn't have been asked to make this start after saving Sunday's game against the Tigers. He ended up allowing three runs in the first, and his ERA increased from 2.92 to 3.66. Ramirez should remain in the rotation for now and pitch this weekend.
May 30 - 12:38 AM

Jose De Leon was credited with a win in his Rays debut after allowing three runs in 2 2/3 innings of relief Monday against the Rangers.

De Leon gave the Rays the innings they wanted after they called him this afternoon. They weren't all that impressive, though, as he allowed four hits, including a Shin-Soo Choo homer, and three walks. He'll probably head back to Triple-A now.
May 30 - 12:36 AM

Martin Perez gave up five runs and nine hits in five innings Monday in a no-decision against the Rays.

Perez doesn't win any games by himself, but he usually doesn't lose them either; this is the first time all season he's given up as many as five runs. His ERA increased from 3.77 to 4.19.
May 30 - 12:35 AM

Evan Longoria homered and knocked in four Monday against the Rangers.

Longoria could use some more singles, but at least he does have eight homers to go along with 13 doubles. He's not a top-10 fantasy third baseman at the moment.
May 30 - 12:31 AM

Shin-Soo Choo went 2-for-4 with a homer, three RBI and a walk against the Rays on Monday.

Choo's homer was his seventh. It's be nice if he were more effective on the basepaths, but with his OBP up in the .370 range, he should be the Rangers' regular leadoff hitter at this point.
May 30 - 12:28 AM

Joey Gallo homered, doubled and walked Monday against the Rays.

Gallo remained one homer behind the major league leader after Aaron Judge also went deep today. The Rangers used him at first base tonight. He'll also do some DHing while the Rangers get him ready to play left field now that Adrian Beltre is back at third base.
May 30 - 12:26 AM

Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-3 with three RBI and two walks as the Tigers topped the Royals 10-7 on Monday.

It's Cabrera's first three-RBI game since April 14. He's hitting .342 with eight RBI and 10 walks in 11 games since bottoming out at .238/.319/.396 on May 14. He's at .266/.374/.417 now.
May 30 - 12:23 AM

Francisco Rodriguez gave up two runs in the seventh inning Monday to take a blown save against the Royals.

Eric Hosmer hit a game-tying homer off him. Rodriguez did end up with the win after the Tigers came through in the top of the eighth tonight. Still, he didn't help his cause. Justin Wilson ended up notching his fourth save with a hitless ninth.
May 30 - 12:21 AM

Jason Hammel lasted 4 1/3 innings and gave up four runs Monday against the Tigers.

The Royals need Hammel to come alive with Danny Duffy down, but it showed no signs of happening tonight. He walked four, and his ERA increased to 6.18. Still, the Royals probably can't take him out of the rotation now.
May 30 - 12:20 AM

Joakim Soria took his fourth blown save and second loss after giving up four runs Monday against the Tigers.

Soria entered with a 7-6 lead in the eighth and didn't retire any of the five batters he faced. It caused his ERA to double from 1.59 to 3.18.
May 30 - 12:19 AM

J.D. Martinez clubbed his eighth homer Monday against the Royals.

It was a three-run shot off Mike Minor. Martinez's eight homers have come in 17 games since he returned from the disabled list.
