    Dom Nunez May 9 3:10am ET

    Colorado Rockies catcher Dom Nunez went 1-for-5 with a double, three RBI, and two strikeouts in a 9-8 loss to the Cardinals on Friday. Nunez cracked a double off of Carlos Martinez with the bases loaded to tie the game up a 5-5 in the top of the fifth inning. It was the 26-year-old's only hit of the contest but it sure was a big one. Nunez is a flawed hitter, who strikes out a ton (30:7 K/BB ratio in 69 at-bats) but he does have some upside and provides more pop than Elias Diaz. Nunez's counting stats are impressive given his limited number of at-bats (five home runs and 18 RBI) but he's slashing just .203/.276/.522. Ultimately, neither Rockies' backstop is capable of being an everyday fantasy starter but Nunez is the more intriguing player of the two. He's more of an NL-only, two-catcher league option if anything.

    Charlie Blackmon May 9 3:00am ET

    Colorado Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon went 3-for-4 with two RBI, a run scored, and a walk in a 9-8 loss to the Cardinals on Saturday. Blackmon picked up three hits, all singles, in the back-and-forth game. He drove in two runs off of Alex Reyes in the top of the eighth inning to pull the Rockies to within one run but they would ultimately fall short. The veteran outfielder is now rocking a four-game hitting streak and is slashing .360/.429/.480 with one home run and eight RBI over his last 25 at-bats. It's a very welcome sign for Blackmon who had gotten off to a dreadful start this year. The recent hot streak has his season batting line up to .228/.333/.347 with two home runs and 19 RBI over 101 at-bats. There's still room for improvement but it's nice to see him swinging the bat well once again.

    Chi Chi Gonzalez May 9 2:50am ET

    Colorado Rockies right-hander Chi Chi Gonzalez took the loss on Saturday when he surrendered seven runs on eight hits with one walk and one strikeout in a 9-8 loss to the Cardinals. The Cards jumped all over Gonzalez from the outset, tagging him for three runs in the first, two runs in the third, and two more in the fifth. It was his worst outing of the season, by far. He's now allowed 11 runs over his last 8 2/3 innings, which has raised his season ERA to an ugly 5.97 to go along with a 1.57 WHIP, and 15:10 K/BB ratio. He draws the Reds at home in his next start and should be avoided at all costs for fantasy purposes.

    Austin Hays May 9 1:20am ET

    Baltimore Orioles outfielder Austin Hays had another nice day at the plate in Saturday's 11-6 loss to the Red Sox. Hays went 2-for-5 with a single, a double, and two RBI. The 25-year-old has been hitting well lately, batting .323 with five RBI over his last seven games. Hays has shown flashes of success throughout his young career, so fantasy managers should keep an eye on him, especially if he continues to produce at the plate.

    Freddy Galvis May 9 1:00am ET

    Baltimore Orioles shortstop Freddy Galvis extended his hit streak to nine in Saturday's 11-6 loss to the Red Sox, going 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a strikeout. Galvis took Garrett Richards deep in the second inning for his fourth HR of the season. Galvis has quietly stepped it up lately and now owns a .286/.343/.516 slash line with 10 RBI on the season. He still isn't the most exciting fantasy player, but he could be a nice streamer for fantasy managers dealing with injuries or looking for a boost.

    Zac Lowther May 9 12:50am ET

    Baltimore Orioles pitcher Zac Lowther did not fare well in his first career start, taking the loss in an 11-6 game against the Red Sox. Lowther only lasted 2 1/3 innings, allowing seven runs on seven hits (including a two-run home run) and two walks with three strikeouts. The 25-year-old has pitched well in his minor league career, but it looks like he may need some more experience before he's ready for the big leagues. It remains to be seen if Lowther will take another turn in the rotation with the O's, but he should be avoided if he does.

    Cavan Biggio May 8 11:50pm ET

    Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Cavan Biggio belted his third homer of the season on Saturday, helping his team beat the Astros 8-4. He took Cristian Javier deep in the third inning for a two-run shot as he finished the game going 1-for-2 with two runs and a pair of walks. Biggio has spent the season splitting time between the outfield and third base which might be having an effect on his focus at the plate since he's learning new positions. He's slashing just .215/.327/.344 with a 29.5% K-rate, zero steals, and seven RBI through 28 games, not ideal numbers for where he was taken in drafts. There's still plenty of time for the 26-year-old to turn it around, but be wary he may not meet his counting stats projections by year's end.

    Steven Matz May 8 11:40pm ET

    Toronto Blue Jays starter Steven Matz improved to 5-2 on the season in the team's 8-4 win over the Astros on Saturday. The lefty struck out four over five innings while allowing three runs on eight hits and no walks in the 92-pitch effort. Matz has cooled off since his first three superb starts of the season as his ERA and WHIP are now up to 4.86 and 1.27 on the season. Without his five wins his stats don't offer much for fantasy, so he's fallen off the 12-team radar, but there's still some streamer appeal in deeper formats. Matz will get the Phillies in Dunedin in his next contest which isn't a matchup that's very appealing on paper.

    Dylan Moore May 8 11:20pm ET

    Seattle Mariners second baseman Dylan Moore had a solid showing Saturday night against the Texas Rangers. Moore went 2-for-4 with a double and a bunt single, and he came around to score both times. Moore has managed to stay in the lineup despite his terrible start to the season, because essentially the Mariners just don't have better options. His speed gives him a decent fantasy floor, with six steals on the year, but he should be on benches until his ratios pick up.

    Danny Jansen May 8 11:20pm ET

    Toronto Blue Jays catcher Danny Jansen popped his third homer of the season, and third in as many days, during the team's 8-4 win over the Astros on Saturday. After finishing April with an atrocious .045/.143/.068 slash line, the 26-year-old has picked it up with the bat of late with hits in four of his six May starts. We still need to see a lot more from Jansen to warrant roster consideration in one-catcher formats since his batting average has just finally pushed above the .100 mark. With Alejandro Kirk on the 60-day IL, Jansen will get more than the lion's share of starts behind the dish, and perhaps more playing time will help his bat find a groove.

    Evan White May 8 11:20pm ET

    Seattle Mariners first baseman Evan White finally had a big day at the plate Saturday. White went 2-for-3 with a home run and a double, driving in three total runs. His two-run shot came in the top of the second inning off Rangers starter Kohei Arihara, and was White's second big fly of the year. Even after this big game, White still only has a .462 OPS over 87 at-bats. He was recently dropped to eighth in the lineup, leaving him considerably less opportunity for counting stats than when he was batting fourth or fifth. White should stay on fantasy waiver wires.

    J.P. Crawford May 8 11:10pm ET

    Seattle Mariners shortstop J.P. Crawford was in the five-hole once again Saturday, and he went 1-for-5 to drive in two runs. Crawford has been hot of late, with a .300/.364/.440 line over the last 15 days, and an even better .318/.400/.500 line over the last week. Crawford has never been known to hit the ball particularly hard, but he shows excellent patience and bad control, with a chase rate and whiff rate in the 87th and 79th percentiles. Sitting in the five-spot, he should have plenty of opportunities to drive in runs, and could be a decent fill-in while he's hot for fantasy managers in need of a plug-in at their middle infield slot.

    From RotoBaller

    Luis Torrens May 8 11:10pm ET

    Seattle Mariners catcher Luis Torrens drew the start Saturday, and went 1-for-4 with a home run. The solo shot came in the top of the eighth inning, and temporarily gave the Mariners the lead, though his own error would contribute to the three runs Texas scored in the bottom of the inning. Torrens has received plenty of playing time, but his .621 OPS is just not enough to make him worthwhile fantasy-wise at the moment, even in two-catcher formats.

    Kyle Seager May 8 11:00pm ET

    Seattle Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager went deep Saturday against the Texas Rangers. The homer, Seager's sixth of the year, came off of lefty reliever Kolby Allard, and was absolutely crushed to center field. He also singled and walked in the contest. After a very hot start, Seager's OPS has settled back towards his career average, now sitting at .772. Consistently batting in the third spot in the lineup, Seager represents a solid, if unspectacular, fantasy asset. He should be on fantasy rosters in all but the deepest of leagues.

    From RotoBaller

    Ty France May 8 11:00pm ET

    Seattle Mariners designated hitter Ty France had yet another tough day at the plate against the Rangers Saturday. France had plenty of opportunities with men on base, but he was once again not able to pick up a hit, going 0-for-5 in the contest. He did manage to bring one run home on a fielder's choice. Over the past week, France has only managed a single hit and has an OPS of .215, which is hard to fathom for such a steady line-drive hitter. The only thing keeping him in the top half of the lineup is the lack of options. France is a hold for now, but it would be understandable for fantasy managers to be losing patience.

    Ljay Newsome May 8 10:50pm ET

    Seattle Mariners pitcher Ljay Newsome (elbow) left Saturday's game with an injury after completing only one inning. Newsome entered after starter Erik Swanson, and was expected to throw multiple innings as a bulk pitcher, but exited with what was later deemed right elbow inflammation. In his one inning, Newsome allowed three runs on four hits while striking out two. Hopefully Newsome won't be forced to miss much time, but regardless he should be left on fantasy waiver wires.

    Ljay Newsome May 8 10:50pm ET

    Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Ljay Newsome (elbow) exited Saturday's outing against Texas. The 24-year-old lasted only an inning and was pulled after suffering inflammation in his right elbow. The righty doesn't offer much of an upside, so fantasy managers likely won't lose any sleep if he ends up taking a trip to the 10-day injured list, especially after posting a miserable 5.83 ERA throughout his career.

    From RotoBaller

    Kyle Lewis May 8 10:50pm ET

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Kyle Lewis had another solid game Saturday, collecting two hits in three at-bats and walking twice. He also scored a run. Lewis has been steadily bringing his numbers up since returning from injury, and he now holds a .246/.306/.745 slash line with three homers in 57 at-bats. Over the last seven games, he has an even more robust .346/.414/.500 line. Lewis is an excellent fantasy asset, and should be in fantasy lineups in all formats.

    Ronald Acuna Jr. May 8 10:40pm ET

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. (hand) is considered day-to-day. The 23-year-old took a pitch to his left hand during Saturday's outing against the Phillies, resulting in a bruised left pinky. Luckily, x-rays were negative, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see him out of the lineup for the series finale against Philly on Sunday.

    From RotoBaller

    Paul Goldschmidt May 8 10:30pm ET

    St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Paul Goldschmidt had a big game in Saturday's 9-8 win over the Colorado Rockies. "Goldy" went 3-for-5 with a home run and two singles, scoring three times and driving in three runs. His home run was a two-run shot in the fifth inning, his fifth blast of the season. Goldschmidt raised his batting average to .246 and his OPS to .690. He hasn't been the Paul Goldschmidt we're all used to yet this season, but he seems to be heating up now.
