Jose Peraza went 2-for-4 with two stolen bases Saturday in the Dodgers' 5-2 defeat of the Cubs.
Peraza singled, stole third base, and scored a run in the bottom of the third inning. In the bottom of the seventh inning, he smacked an RBI double and scored his second run of the game. In the eighth inning he reached on a fielder's choice and stole second. The young infield prospect can be a weapon as a pinch-runner down the stretch for Los Angeles and he'll be an intriguing daily fantasy play on days he starts.
Mat Latos held the Cubs to two runs over 4 2/3 innings Saturday in a no-decision.
Latos was skipped on his last turn through the Dodgers' rotation and pitched pretty well in his return to action Saturday all things considered. The right-hander walked three but struck out five and yielded only four hits. He'll face the Padres on the road next.
Jon Lester gave up five earned runs over six innings Saturday in a loss to the Dodgers.
Lester didn't issue a walk and struck out seven, but the Dodgers tagged him for eight hits and took advantage of his inability to control the running game with three stolen bases. Lester should be able to bounce back in his next start at home against the Diamondbacks.
Robinson Cano went 4-for-4 with a double, a run scored and a walk in Saturday's win over the White Sox.
The double was Cano's 31st of the season. After spending a solid half of the season in the dumps, he's lit it up since the All-Star Break and now boasts a .281/.328/.432 triple-slash with 14 homers and 58 RBI. This season will still go down as one of the worst of Cano's career, but it doesn't look like nearly as much of a train wreck now. Plus, there's still a month-plus to cushion out those numbers if he can stay hot.
Diamondbacks recalled RHP Allen Webster from Triple-A Reno.
Webster will start for the Snakes in Sunday's series finale against Oakland. He's a poor fantasy bet.
