Eduardo Nunez continued his dream season in Saturday’s 6-5 win over the Mariners, pounding out four hits, including his fifth homer of the year.

Nunez is now hitting .333/.363/.510 in one of the more unexpected performances of the year. He’s bounced around from third base to shortstop to second base defensively, which has helped his playing time remain high. Although his .366 BABIP suggests that his batting average should drop, he has an outside chance to hit double-digit homers and steal 20-plus bases. No shortstop did that in 2015.

Wade Miley served up a trio of homers and only lasted four innings against the Twins on Saturday, ultimately getting tagged for five earned runs.

It was vintage Miley -- strikeout a ton, walk a couple, and give up the long ball. He struck out six, walked four, and allowed three homers. This is why Miley had a 4.46 ERA with the Red Sox in 2015 and now has a 4.95 ERA with the Mariners. The 29-year-old is what he is at this point and, in terms of fantasy leagues, that’s not a top-75 starter. He’ll look to get back on track against the Padres on the road.

Phil Hughes gave up four earned runs on nine hits and three walks in just 4 2/3 innings in Saturday’s win over the Mariners.

It could’ve been worse. The Mariners had the bases loaded four different times against Hughes, but hitters went 0-for-4 with a double play in those situations. That helped the right-hander limit the damage, despite the 12 baserunners. He now has a 5.74 ERA with only 30 strikeouts in 53 1/3 innings and will next get the Rays at home.

Paul Goldschmidt got on base four times in Saturday’s 8-7 win over the Padres, going 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and a pair of walks.

It was only Goldschmidt’s ninth home run of the year, which somehow seems relatively small, but he has already driven in 30 runs. He also swiped his sixth bag of the year for good measure. The All-Star first baseman is now hitting .250/.413/.453 and remains one of the elite fantasy players in any mixed format.

Cesar Vargas got shelled on Saturday against the Diamondbacks, surrendering seven runs in just 1 2/3 innings.

Vargas allowed six hits -- one of them being a two-run shot from Paul Goldschmidt -- and two walks, so it was an all-around miserable outing for the young righty. Considering he had never made a start above Double-A prior to this year, fantasy owners should expect a few blow-up starts as he acclimates to the big leagues, especially given his penchant for the free pass. The ground-ball specialist may be able to carve out a back-end role in San Diego; however, that’s not too interesting in fantasy leagues.

Zack Greinke was responsible for four runs in six innings of work in Saturday’s win over the Padres.

Greinke saw his quality start spoiled by a three-run sixth, an inning that featured three doubles and a walk. It marked his fifth start in which he allowed four or more runs. The right-hander had only two of such outings in all of 2015. He now owns a 4.71 ERA with 60 strikeouts in 70 2/3 innings this year and will next face the Astros in an interleague match-up.

Dallas Keuchel recovered from a shaky start to limit the Angels to two runs over seven innings in Saturday's 4-2 win.

Keuchel gave up back-to-back solo homers to Mike Trout and Albert Pujols in the first inning but settled down to put up six zeroes in his final six innings of work. The southpaw gave up just one other hit, didn't walk a batter and struck out five on the night. It ranked among his best starts of the season, improving him to 3-6 with a 5.58 ERA and 1.47 WHIP through 11 outings. We'll see if Keuchel can use the start as a springboard or if it was an aberration when he takes on the Diamondbacks on Thursday.
May 29 - 1:07 AM

Jered Weaver allowed four runs over six innings in a loss to the Astros on Saturday.

Weaver matched Astros starter Dallas Keuchel through five innings, each pitcher allowing two runs, but a Jason Castro two-run home run in the sixth inning broke the tie and sealed Weaver's fate. The right-hander gave up six hits and walked three on the evening. Weaver's record fell to 4-4 with the loss, and he owns a 5.40 ERA and 1.51 WHIP through 10 starts. An interleague matchup with the Pirates is on tap for Friday.

Luke Gregerson worked a perfect ninth inning against the Angels on Saturday to earn his 11th save.

Gregerson was given the day off Thursday after having worked each of the previous two days, but rested and ready he jumped right back into the ninth inning Saturday. And he had little trouble with the top of the Angels' lineup, retiring the side in order, culminating with a Mike Trout groundout to end the game. Gregerson owns a 3.18 ERA and 1.01 WHIP in 22 appearances to date.

Yu Darvish (elbow) struck out seven over five innings of one-run ball in the Rangers' 5-2 win over the Pirates on Saturday.

Making his season debut, the right-hander looked like he hadn't missed a beat, giving up just three hits and a walk while throwing 81 pitches in the start. The start was his first since August 9, 2014, after undergoing Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. Initial results were promising, but few Tommy John patients come back without any bumps along the way, and there will surely be some for the 29-year-old as well. His comeback will continue Friday against the Mariners.
May 28 - 11:38 PM

Kurt Suzuki left Saturday's game against the Mariners after getting a foul ball to the face mask.

The Twins are likely concerned that Suzuki suffered a concussion, but further information should come after the game. Juan Centano replaced the 32-year-old catcher, who was hitting .200/.257/.284 in 106 plate appearances.
May 28 - 11:36 PM

Juan Nicasio failed to make it out of the fifth inning Saturday, allowing four runs on seven hits over 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Rangers.

Nicasio surrendered two home runs among his seven hits allowed. It was the third time in four starts that he's allowed four earned runs, raising his ERA to 4.79 through nine outings. The good news is he's striking out a batter per inning, but the bad news is that he's also giving up a hit per inning. Nicasio will try to get back on the right track Thursday at the Marlins.
May 28 - 11:33 PM

Jurickson Profar went 2-for-4 with a triple and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Pirates.

In just his second game back with the Rangers, Profar made his presence felt, hitting a one-out triple and scoring in the seventh inning. He has three hits in nine at-bats since being recalled, and he's expected to fill in at second base -- and atop the Rangers' order -- while Rougned Odor is serving his suspension. If Profar performs well during the audition, he could force Rangers' brass to make a tough decision when Odor returns.

Continuing his turn as public enemy No. 1 in New York, Chase Utley homered twice and drove in five runs as the Dodgers trounced the Mets 9-1 on Saturday.

Utley hit a solo homer in the fourth inning before blasting a grand slam in the seventh. That wasn't even the most excitement that centered around the second baseman, as Mets starter Noah Syndergaard was ejected in the third inning for throwing near Utley. All the vitriol stems from Utley's take-out slide that broke Ruben Tejada's leg last October. All the sideshows have drawn attention away from the fact that Utley is now hitting a healthy .296/.386/.453 in 44 games.
May 28 - 11:21 PM

Tigers optioned OF Steven Moya to Triple-A Toledo.

The move was made prior to Saturday's game. Moya batted .281 (9-for-32) with two doubles and two RBI during his time with the big club and should get another chance later this summer.
