Asdrubal Cabrera hit a two-run double and scored a run in Thursday's win over the Brewers.

Cabrera doubled in a pair of runs and came around to score on a Wilmer Flores single in the fifth inning, extending the Mets' lead. It was Cabrera's only hit in five at-bats. The 32-year-old infielder is quietly having a very good year offensively through the first two months, hitting .307/.351/.523 with seven homers, 29 RBI and 26 runs scored, and should be in the mix for an MI spot or possibly even a starting second base gig in deeper fantasy leagues.

Zach Davies allowed four runs on six hits over four innings against the Mets in his return to the rotation Thursday.

Davies gave up six hits and walked two in his first start in close to a month. The right-hander fell to 2-4 with a 4.74 ERA and 1.34 WHIP with the loss. He's never going to be one to strike out a ton of batters or fire seven scoreless innings, but Davies has been serviceable for the Brewers and should be better than he was Thursday. That said, it's still not much to look at for fantasy purposes, and a start against the Cardinals on Tuesday doesn't offer much streaming appeal, either.

Steven Matz tossed six shutout innings in a win over the Brewers on Thursday.

Matz gave up four hits and walked three but never gave in, turning in his first scoreless outing of the year to improve to 2-3. With the good turn, the left-hander owns a 3.80 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in nine starts. A start against the division-leading Braves is on tap for Tuesday.

Danny Duffy kept the Rangers to one run on four hits over 7 2/3 innings in an 8-2 win Thursday.

Not much has gone right for the southpaw this year, but he found a groove against the Texas club, only allowing a run on his 113th pitch of the night. Duffy walked two and struck out five before exiting. Even with the strong outing, Duffy is just 2-6 with a 6.14 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 11 starts overall. That's not useable in fantasy leagues, and we'll need to see more than one good game to recommend inserting the 29-year-old back into your lineups. Pay attention to how he fares Tuesday against the Twins.

Delino DeShields went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Thursday's loss to the Royals.

It's not much, but DeShields has shown some signs of life at the plate in recent days, collecting two hits, a walk, a stolen base and three runs scored in his last two games. That's a step in the right direction after he experienced a freefall earlier this month. The speedy outfielder is hitting .228/.312/.317 with nine steals in 32 games and can stay on the sidelines until he strings a few more good games together.
May 24 - 11:28 PM

Ramon Torres went 2-for-3 with three runs scored in a win over the Rangers on Thursday.

Well, that's a way to make your season debut. He was recalled Saturday when Cheslor Cuthbert hit the disabled list, but he hadn't gotten into a game until Thursday. Batting ninth and playing third base, Torres hit a pair of singles and walked, scoring all three times he reached base. Despite that, the 25-year-old will likely remain in a reserve role and, when Cuthbert returns, is expected to be sent back to Triple-A.

Whit Merrifield went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Rangers.

Merrifield tacked on a pair of insurance runs in the eighth inning with his 13th double of the year. With the two RBI and the run scored, Merrifield is now hitting .286/.358/.418 with 19 RBI and 25 runs scored. A multi-dimensional threat, he's also got 12 steals, second-most in the American League.

Austin Bibens-Dirkx was greeted rudely by the Royals in his season debut Thursday, allowing six runs -- four earned -- in 6 1/3 innings in a loss.

Promoted by the Rangers to make the start after he posted a 3.72 ERA in eight minor league outings, Bibens-Dirkx didn't fare much better than most of the disappointing options the Rangers have run out this year. It wasn't all bad -- he struck out six while walking just one, and an error led to two of the Royals' runs -- but it wasn't much good, either. Considering that the club doesn't boast a ton of better options, the 33-year-old -- who put up a 4.67 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in 24 games with the Rangers last year -- will likely get another turn, expected to come Wednesday against the Mariners.
