Tyler Alexander Detroit Tigers

Less heralded than Dylan Cease -- in fact he's not heralded at all -- he had a more impressive, or at least effective, debut in the second game of yesterday's double-header in Chicago. Five hits, no walks, four strikeouts in five innings. And then was sent back to Toledo.

Five consecutive walk-off wins. That's got to be a world's record.

Tommy La Stella Los Angeles Angels

To the DL with a fractured tibia (self-inflicted), misses the All-Star Game.

Such a shame. They should invite him next year no matter what.

Max Scherzer Washington Nationals

Strasburg 138.

Still a damn big gap.

Dylan Cease Chicago White Sox

Hung in to get the win in his debut. Lots of velo but he had trouble locating it.

If it was nerves, who can blame him?

Tommy Edman St. Louis Cardinals

Talk about a big fly: Edman's pinch-hit homer with two aboard with two outs in the top of the ninth caps a five-run rally for the Cardinals, who began the inning down 2-0 in Seattle.

Elias threw four straight changeups to Edman, then with the count 2-2 tried his luck with a 95 mile-an-hour fastball.

Wade Miley Houston Astros

What started out as a typical Coors game -- 4-1 after 3 1/2 -- ended up as a tidy 4-2 win for the visitors. Astros won their fifth in a row.

Miley gave up one run, five hits and two walks over six innings, striking out six. Lambert, who held the Astros reasonably in check over five innings (four runs, seven baserunners) must be a slow worker. Time of game: 2:41.

And if you are HBP it is a dead ball, even when a swinging or taken strike (body part hanging over the plate).

170K so far. Second place is 129 by Robbie Ray. That's a big gap.

Craig Kimbrel Chicago Cubs

The second one was apparently a tough one as well...

After a groundout, an 8 pitch walk, where the last two balls weren't close.  Then a double.

Had Russell taken the out on Frazier's grounder, Kimbrel would have been able to get out of the inning with a tie.  Trying to cut down the runner and not getting the out set up the game winning sac fly.

Justin Wilson New York Mets

Seeing him yesterday reminded me:  The Yankees got Chad Green and Luis Cessa for him.  That worked out.

Whaaa, Whaa , Wha!!! At least the team that I drafted him on has been ridiculously decimated by injury and he'll likely by my $7 anchor SP next year.

A friend who is a Cubs' fan sez ... 

How often do you have the starting All-Star Catcher start a game
for you in RF??  Gotta love Joe Maddon.

Chris Herrmann Oakland Athletics

Six homers in the once-spacious Oakland Coliseum last night. Herrmann's, in his second at bat of the season, dropped over the center field fence in the fourth and came with the bases loaded. He hit four big flies at Las Vegas in 51 AB while slashing .333/.397/.667.

If you managed to find a spot for him on your reserve list all season, you're happy; he's going to cost in leagues where he's available.

Charlie Morton Tampa Bay Rays

Rule 6.05(e) says a batter is out if he swings at a third strike and is hit by the pitch.

Isn't it a strikeout wild pitch? Why is he called back from first?
