Marwin González (B) Headshot

Gonzalez (oblique) went 1-for-4 against the Athletics on Tuesday.

Gonzalez returned to the lineup after missing a pair of games over the weekend with oblique tightness. The 28-year-old knocked a single in the second inning to extend his hitting streak to four games; he's now slashing .318/.407/.591 with 13 homers in 59 games this season.

Kenta Maeda (R) Headshot

Maeda (6-3) scattered four hits over seven scoreless innings in Tuesday's win over the Angels. He struck out six and did not walk a batter.

The right-hander faced an Angels lineup that was without Albert Pujols and Cameron Maybin in addition to Mike Trout (thumb), but that doesn't mean this performance was just a flash in the pan. Maeda has been on a roll for weeks, shaving a full run off his ERA over his last four appearances (two earned runs over 17 innings in that span) while jumping between the bullpen and rotation. He has given up three home runs over the past two months after serving up seven in April. If he keeps going like this, Maeda should continue to see regular starts even after Brandon McCarthy (knee) returns.
1:13 am (EST)
J.D. Martínez (R) Headshot

Martinez went 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Royals.

He's hitting .322 (28-for-87) in June and now has 13 homers in 42 games on the year, a pace that has Martinez targeting his first 40-HR campaign despite missing the first six weeks of the season with a foot injury.
1:10 am (EST)
Justin Wilson (L) Headshot

Wilson struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Tuesday to record his seventh save of the season in a 5-3 win over the Royals.

After going most of the month of June without sniffing a save chance, Wilson has now converted two in consecutive appearances. The left-hander's 43:12 K:BB in 29.1 innings is excellent, but he'll need the Tigers to start stringing together more wins if his strong performance this season is going to translate into more saves in the second half.
1:05 am (EST)
Taijuan Walker (R) Headshot

Walker (6-3) allowed five runs (three earned) on six hits and five walks over 6.1 innings during Tuesday's game against the Cardinals. He did not record a single strikeout nor did he factor into the decision.

Walker continued to struggle with his command Tuesday, as the 24-year-old has now walked an unsightly nine batters over his previous two starts. To add insult to injury, Walker went without a strikeout for the first time since a blowup outing on August 6 of last season. Though his ERA still sits at a respectable 3.50, his recent form hasn't exactly left his fantasy owners feeling overly confident with the young hurler. Walker is set for another tough test as he's scheduled to face the Rockies in his upcoming start Sunday.
1:02 am (EST)
Justin Verlander (R) Headshot

Verlander (5-4) allowed three runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out six over seven innings in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Royals.

He settled down after Kansas City hung three runs on him in the first innings, giving the Detroit offense a chance to come back. It was his ninth quality start of the season, and Verlander will take a 4.47 ERA into his next start Sunday at home against Cleveland.
1:01 am (EST)
Carlos Martínez (R) Headshot

Martinez (6-6) allowed two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out 10 over six innings during Tuesday's no-decision against the Diamondbacks.

Martinez's stellar season continued Tuesday, as the young righty has now posted quality starts in 11 of his past 12 outings. The 25-year-old has also struck out 10 or more batters in four of his 16 starts this season, which is already two more than the number of double-digit strikeout games that he posted all of last season. Martinez will carry his 2.88 ERA into his upcoming start against the Nationals on Sunday.
12:59 am (EST)
Matt Strahm (L) Headshot

Strahm (2-5) allowed five runs on six hits while striking out four over 3.2 innings in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Tigers.

The young lefty was staked to a three-run lead before he even took the mound in the first inning but Strahm wasn't able to hold onto it, serving up homers to J.D.Martinez and Miguel Cabrera en route to the loss. He'll carry a 5.61 ERA into his next start Sunday at home against the Twins.
12:57 am (EST)
Christian Yelich (L) Headshot

Yelich went 3-for-4 with a double, a run scored and two RBI in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Mets.

He snapped out of a 2-for-17 mini-slump with the performance. Yelich is now hitting .294 (25-for-85) in June with a homer, three steals, 13 runs and 14 RBI in 23 games.
12:53 am (EST)
A.J. Ramos (R) Headshot

Ramos gave up a hit in a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday to notch his 13th save of the season in a 6-3 win over the Mets.

After struggling to get save opportunities through the first two months of the season, Ramos now has four in the last week and seven in June. The 30-year-old's 3.49 ERA reflects that somewhat erratic usage, and his 37:15 K:BB in 28.1 innings offers a better view of his performance in 2017.
