Jake Lamb finished 1-for-4 with his 12th home run and a pair of RBI in Tuesday's game against the White Sox.

Lamb blasted five homers with 21 RBI in the month of April and he has cracked seven home runs with 17 RBI through 19 games in May. He posted 29 clouts with 91 RBI in 523 at-bats across 151 games last season and he is proving this year that was no fluke. Over the past two seasons Lamb has emerged as an outstanding power source across the board in all fantasy formats.

Christian Yelich exited Tuesday's game versus the Athletics with a right hip flexor injury.

It's unclear when Yelich suffered the injury, but it seems like he was lifted for precautionary reasons. The Marlins are listing him as day-to-day. Yelich had a single and scored a run in five plate appearances before departing.

R.A. Dickey somehow managed to notch a quality start despite allowing 11 hits and three walks over six frames in Tuesday’s 6-5 win over the Pirates.

Pitching on three days’ rest, Dickey struck out just two and surrendered a home run to Jordy Mercer, but he managed to keep the Braves in the game, ultimately permitting three runs while throwing 102 pitches. Atlanta is probably satisfied with the knuckleballer’s 4.17 ERA, but it’s come along with an ugly 1.56 WHIP and 28/24 K/BB ratio over 54 innings. Dickey faces the Giants in San Francisco on Sunday.

Chris Herrmann finished 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's game against the White Sox.

Herrmann has homered in three consecutive starts, posting four RBI during the span. While Jeff Mathis is superior defensively, Herrmann's bat is coming alive and he is making it hard for skipper Torey Lovullo to keep the backstop on the bench. He remains a No. 2 fantasy option in NL-only leagues with some power upside.

Tyler Glasnow held the Braves to two runs over six innings Tuesday.

Glasnow surrendered nine hits – including a solo home run to Matt Adams – and also walked a pair, but he managed to hold Atlanta relatively in check. He also did his part and then some at the plate, picking up three singles in three at-bats. Glasnow remains volatile for fantasy purposes, as his penchant for free passes can result in blowup starts at any time. He faces the Mets on Sunday.

Tony Watson blew his second save of the season Tuesday in Atlanta.

Ender Inciarte reached on a one-out infield single and the scored the game-tying run on a Nick Markakis double. After an intentional walk to Matt Kemp, Matt Adams slashed a walk-off RBI single. Watson has been pretty shaky so far in May, allowing seven runs over nine appearances.

Fernando Rodney worked a perfect ninth inning in Tuesday's game against the White Sox for his 11th save of the season.

Rodney worked a tidy 12-pitch frame for his seventh consecutive clean appearance of May. After a rough April with a 12.60 ERA and two blown saves he appears to have ironed out his issues and is a perfect 5-for-5 on save chances in May.
May 24 - 2:03 AM

Jim Johnson allowed two runs to pick up his third blown save of the season on Tuesday against the Pirates.

Johnson was tasked with protecting a one-run lead but coughed it up by giving up three singles and a walk in the top of the ninth inning, which was punctuated by a Jordy Mercer two-RBI single. He was then pulled, and the Braves bailed him out by coming back in the bottom of the frame. Johnson holds an unsightly 3.66 ERA on the season, but it's come along with a nice 20/4 K/BB ratio over 19 2/3 innings.
May 24 - 2:03 AM

Patrick Corbin allowed three earned runs while scattering eight hits over six innings in a win Tuesday against the White Sox.

The left-hander walked one and struck out five in the 91-pitch quality start. While he has struggled on the road with a 0-3 record and 7.31 ERA in three outing away from home, he is a respectable 4-1 with a 2.63 ERA through seven home starts. The Diamondbacks are also a perfect 6-0 over his past six assignments.
May 24 - 1:59 AM

Matt Adams doubled, homered and hit a walk-off RBI single in Tuesday's win over the Pirates.

Adams struck out three times and hit into a double play in his Braves debut Sunday, but he’s now gone deep each of the last two nights and delivered a walk-off RBI single off of Pirates closer Tony Watson on Tuesday. He’s batted fifth in each of his first three contests with his new club and is worth a corner infield spot in deeper fantasy leagues.

Jordy Mercer mashed a solo homer and drove in three runs Tuesday against the Braves.

Mercer took R.A. Dickey over the boards in the sixth inning and has now reached base in five of nine career plate appearances versus the knuckleballer. He then put the Pirates ahead in the top of the ninth following a long rain delay, but Pittsburgh coughed up the lead in the bottom of the frame. Mercer is sporting an unappetizing .215/.323/.299 batting line on the season.
May 24 - 1:55 AM

Todd Frazier finished 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's game at Arizona.

It was just the fifth homer of the season for Frazier, who has been a bit of a disappointment since coming over from the Reds after the 2015 season. While he belted a career-high 40 homers last year on the south side, he posted a career-worst .225. This season he is hitting a paltry .192, although he is showing signs of life with eight hits over his past 30 hits (.267).
May 24 - 1:55 AM

X-rays on Yonder Alonso's right wrist came back negative.

Alonso was lifted from Tuesday's game after being hit by a pitch, but he's managed to escape with just a bruise. He'll probably still be sore for a bit, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see him sit out a game or two. Alonso just returned to the lineup Tuesday after missing time with a knee injury.
May 24 - 1:49 AM

Jose Abreu finished 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's game at Arizona.

Abreu was ice cold out of the chute, failing to hit his first home run of the season until April 29. Since then he has started to make up for lost time, belting nine homers over the past 23 outings. He has also hit safely in each of the past five and eight of the past nine.
May 24 - 1:47 AM

Joc Pederson left Tuesday's game in the Cardinals after an outfield collision with Yasiel Puig.

Pederson took an elbow to the face from Puig before crashing head-first into the outfield wall. Both players were running full-speed on a liner to right-center that Puig actually managed to haul in. Pederson laid sprawled on the ground in obvious pain for a couple of minutes before eventually walking off slowly alongside team trainers. Enrique Hernandez took over in center field.
