Melky Cabrera blasted a three-run homer on Friday, powering the White Sox to an 8-2 victory over the visiting Tigers.

Cabrera's three-run shot in the eighth inning capped off the scoring in the ballgame. He also added an RBI single in the sixth inning, finishing the night 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and four RBI. For the season, the veteran outfielder is hitting .251/.301/.357 with four homers and 25 RBI.

Avisail Garcia went 3-for-5 with a double and three RBI as the White Sox topped the Tigers in their series-opener in Chicago on Friday.

Garcia got the White Sox on the board, delivering a bases-clearing three-run double in the third inning. He's in the midst of an outstanding season, slashing a robust .341/.385/.576 with eight homers and 37 RBI.
May 27 - 2:55 AM

Matt Davidson clubbed his ninth home run of the season in Friday's victory over the Tigers.

Davidson blasted a solo homer off of Blaine Hardy in the sixth inning, increasing the White Sox' advantage to 4-2. He also singled, finishing the night 2-for-4. He has been a nice addition to the lineup this season, slashing .257/.305/.541 with nine homers and 24 RBI.
May 27 - 2:53 AM

Mike Pelfrey punched out a season-high seven batters over five innings in Friday's victory over the Tigers.

The veteran right-hander allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits and a walk. He had struck out just 11 batters through 29 2/3 innings on the season entering play on Friday, so the strikeout explosion came out of nowhere. With this fine effort, he now owns a respectable 4.41 ERA and 1.21 WHIP on the season. He still isn't a recommended fantasy option for Wednesday's start against the Red Sox.
May 27 - 2:51 AM

Alex Avila blasted his sixth home run of the season as the Tigers fell to the White Sox on Friday night in Chicago.

Avila's solo shot off of Mike Pelfrey in the fifth inning pulled the Tigers to within a run at 3-2, but that would be as close as they would get. Avila has been a monster at the plate this season, slashing .354/.475/.659 with six homers and 20 RBI. With James McCann on the disabled list, he'll continue to see regular run behind the plate.
May 27 - 2:48 AM

Matt Boyd struggled again in Friday's loss to the White Sox, surrendering three runs on nine hits in 4 2/3 innings.

The left-hander also walked two while striking out three on the night. All of the damage against him came in the third inning where Avisail Garcia delivered a three-run double. He now sits at 2-5 on the year with an uninspiring 5.40 ERA and 1.74 WHIP. The Tigers don't really have a better option to take the ball every fifth day though, so he'll remain in the rotation to work through his issues. He should be avoided for fantasy purposes despite a nice matchup against the Royals in Kansas City on Wednesday.
May 27 - 2:46 AM

Chris Archer fanned 11 while allowing two runs over 7 2/3 innings Friday in a victory over the Twins.

That's four games this month with 11 or 12 strikeouts for Archer. He's had some days this year in which his command has let him down and he hasn't been very efficient in hi stronger outings, but 4-3 with a 3.61 ERA and 88 strikeouts in 11 starts has still made him pretty valuable from a fantasy perspective.
May 27 - 12:54 AM

Logan Morrison had a two-run homer and a walk against the Twins on Friday.

Morrison got off to a strong start for once, so he's even playing against southpaws at the moment and he homered off one in Hector Santiago tonight. He has eight homers and 20 RBI in 23 games this month.
May 27 - 12:51 AM

Miguel Sano struck out all four times he was up Friday and is 0-for-13 with 10 strikeouts in his last three games.

Well, it's not like Sano was really going to hit .300 this year. He's down to .292 now, and his OPS is under 1.000 for the first time in a month.
May 27 - 12:49 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez allowed five hits over six innings and combined with three relievers on a shutout of the Mariners on Friday.

This makes seven straight quality starts for Rodriguez, who is showing real consistency for the first time in his career. He's 4-1 with a 2.77 ERA and a 59/21 K/BB ratio in 55 1/3 innings.
May 27 - 12:47 AM

Jean Segura had three of the Mariners' six hits in Friday's loss to the Red Sox.

He had their only extra-base hit, a double off Eduardo Rodriguez, and a stolen base. He's batting .346 to date. The only disappointment is that he's just 6-for-11 in steals.
May 27 - 12:43 AM

Jesse Chavez was knocked around for five runs over 3 2/3 innings in a loss to the Marlins on Friday.

It was his shortest start of the season. Chavez gave up eight hits, including a long two-run homer to Giancarlo Stanton and a solo blast to J.T. Realmuto. He has now allowed 13 home runs in just 58 1/3 innings this season to go along with a 5.09 ERA. His fantasy appeal continues to be limited.
May 27 - 12:07 AM

Martin Maldonado went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Friday’s loss to the Marlins.

Maldonado took Dan Straily deep in the sixth inning. He later hurt his thumb tagging Giancarlo Stanton at home plate in the eighth inning, though he remained in the game. The 30-year-old has handled the bulk of the catching duties with the Angels this season while batting .271/.333/.388 with three home runs and 12 RBI through 42 games.
May 27 - 12:06 AM

Bud Norris is considered day-to-day with soreness in his right knee.

The injury forced the veteran right-hander to leave Friday's game against the Marlins. It doesn't sound like he'll require a trip to the disabled list, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him held out through the rest of the weekend as a precautionary measure.
May 26 - 11:56 PM

Joe Musgrove fired seven scoreless frames in a 2-0 victory over the Orioles on Friday.

It was easily his best start of the season. Musgrove held the Orioles to just four hits while walking none and striking out six. He gave up seven runs in his last start and issued three walks in three out of his last four starts, making his rotation spot vulnerable, but this outing likely buys him some more time.
