Jesse Chavez pitched six innings of one-run ball for a victory over the Blue Jays on Monday.

The Jays acquired Chavez a year ago, but they buried him in the pen and traded him to the Dodgers at midseason. Back in the rotation now, he's 2-3 with a 4.13 ERA, though that ERA improves to 3.13 if one throws out his emergency relief appearance in the 13th inning Friday. He'll face the Rangers next time out.

Bud Norris recorded his second save Monday in the Angels' 2-1 win over the Jays.

Norris gave up a single and a walk to start the inning, but he was able to strike out Chris Coghlan and induce a double-play ball from Devon Travis to end the game. Expect him to keep getting save chances until Cam Bedrosian returns.

Cameron Maybin singled, walked and stole a base against the Blue Jays on Monday.

Maybin isn't exactly running away with the left field job, but since Ben Revere has hit even worse, Maybin should continue getting the majority of the playing time. He's sporting a .591 OPS in 54 at-bats, while Revere is at .413 in 31 at-bats.

Russell Martin went 2-for-4 and homered for the Jays' only run of the game Monday.

Martin is 8-for-26 with a couple of homers in his last seven games, taking his average from .042 to .180. The two homers have been responsible for his only runs batted in of the year.

Brandon Kintzler pitched a scoreless ninth inning for his fifth save Monday versus the Rangers.

Kintzler issued a two-out walk to Joey Gallo but induced a groundout from Jonathan Lucroy to seal the 3-2 victory. Minnesota's closer has opened the season with 9 1/3 scoreless frames.
Apr 24 - 11:57 PM

Brian Dozier went 2-for-5 with three RBI in the Twins' 3-2 defeat of the Rangers on Monday.

Dozier gave Minnesota the lead for good with his bases-clearing three-run double off Rangers left-hander Martin Perez in the top of the fifth inning. The star second baseman has tallied just six total RBI in 18 games this season to go along with an underwhelming .257/.321/.392 batting line, but he's capable of getting it going in a hurry. Dozier does have five stolen bases in six tries.
Apr 24 - 11:55 PM

Jurickson Profar finished 0-for-2 in the Rangers' loss to the Twins on Monday.

Profar is now batting just .135 with zero extra-base hits in 46 plate appearances this season. The former top prospect is a non-factor in fantasy.
Apr 24 - 11:52 PM

Phil Hughes limited the Rangers to two earned runs over six innings Monday for his third win.

Hughes had been roughed up in two straight outings, but he pitched quite well against a dangerous Texas offense on Monday night. The veteran right-hander issued just one walk and scattered six hits over six frames while moving to 3-1 on the year. He'll carry a 4.71 ERA and 1.33 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Royals.
Apr 24 - 11:49 PM

Martin Perez fell to 1-3 after surrendering three earned runs over six innings Monday versus the Twins.

Perez looked pretty good until the top of the fifth, when he walked the bases loaded and served up a three-run double to Brian Dozier. Perez gave up six total hits on the evening, along with those three fifth-inning walks, and now has a 1.77 WHIP this season. He'll get the Angels at home next.
Apr 24 - 11:46 PM

Miguel Gonzalez allowed just one unearned run over eight innings Monday as the White Sox routed the Royals 12-1.

Kansas City's only run came in the top of the third, when Whit Merrifield reached on a Todd Frazier fielding error and scored moments later on a Mike Moustakas double. Gonzalez allowed just two total hits and one walk while striking out five as he moved to 3-0 with a 2.00 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and 20/8 K/BB ratio in 27 innings this season. We'll see if he has another eight innings in him next time out against the Tigers. Even with the hot start, he makes for a poor fantasy streaming option.
Apr 24 - 11:21 PM

Matt Davidson went 3-for-4 with four RBI as the White Sox dominated the Royals on Monday.

Davidson hit a solo homer off Jason Vargas in the bottom of the second inning and he had both an RBI double and a two-run single in Chicago's eight-run sixth inning. The 26-year-old former top prospect filled in well at third base when Todd Frazier was battling the flu and he should continue to see more turns at DH, which is where he started and finished the game Monday night.
Apr 24 - 11:17 PM

Eric Hosmer finished 0-for-4 in the Royals' blowout loss to the White Sox on Monday.

Hosmer had a promising 2-for-4 showing on Sunday in Arlington, Texas, but the offensive struggles returned on Monday night in Chicago. The impending free agent first baseman is batting just .192/.253/.247 through 19 games this season for Kansas City.
Apr 24 - 11:13 PM

Tim Anderson finished 3-for-5 with an RBI and three runs scored Monday as the White Sox routed the Royals.

Anderson contributed an RBI single to Chicago's eight-run outburst in the bottom of the sixth inning. The young shortstop also had a big game Sunday afternoon against the Indians and looks to be getting hot after a brutal start to the 2017 campaign.
Apr 24 - 11:11 PM

Kelvin Herrera worked a scoreless inning in a non-save situation on Monday against the White Sox.

Kansas City was down 12-1 when Herrera entered for some work in the bottom of the eighth inning. He issued a leadoff walk to Melky Cabrera but got Jose Abreu to ground into a double play and struck out Todd Frazier swinging. Herrera has a 2.25 ERA and 0.63 WHIP in eight innings this season as the Royals' closer.
Apr 24 - 11:08 PM

Jason Vargas gave up four runs -- three earned -- over five innings Monday as the Royals were blown out by the White Sox.

Vargas was due for some regression and it came Monday in the form of seven White Sox hits, including a homer by Matt Davidson in the bottom of the second inning. Vargas didn't issue a walk and struck out five, but he was saddled with his first loss of the season and we'd expect his ERA to continue rising. It jumped from 0.44 to 1.40 on Monday night at Guaranteed Rate Field. He'll get the Twins at Kauffman Stadium next.
