Martin Prado Headshot

Martin Prado went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and one run scored in the Marlins 5-4 loss to the Cardinals in Thursday.

Prado got the Marlins to within striking distance of the Cardinals with his two-run blast in the fifth inning off of Michael Wacha. The man is on fire over his last eight games, going 14-for-29 with five multi-hit games in that time. Prado’s line continues to impress at .325/.376/.428 with four home runs and 38 RBI. Mike Leake takes the mound on Friday for the Cardinals and Prado has not faced him since 2014. He is 4-for-19 with a double, lifetime against Leake.

Jeremy Hazelbaker Headshot

Jeremy Hazelbaker went 1-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored in the Cardinals 5-4 win over the Marlins on Thursday.

The Cardinals recalled Hazelbaker just 10-days ago and he has only amassed four hits and four runs scored. On Sunday though, he got the job done as the lead-off man against one of the N.L.’s best pitchers Jose Fernandez. He reached base three times and scored on two of those occasions. He will face Jose Urena for the first time on Friday night. Urena will get just his third start since being recalled from Triple-A. In his two previous outings, he went six and 5 2/3 innings allowing four hits and one run in both outings after 13 appearances.

Matt Holliday Headshot

Matt Holliday went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the Cardinals 5-4 win over the Marlins on Thursday.

Jose Fernandez gave up two homers in the third innings on Thursday night, one to Diaz and one to Matt Holliday. It is really nice to see Holliday’s power come back parking his 18th home run in 2016 after an injury plagued 2015 season. This 36-year-old is closing in on 20 bombs which would be the 10th time in his career he’s reached that number. The veteran outfielder is hitting .235/.306/.455 on the season. Holliday will face Jose Urena for the first time on Friday night. Urena will get just his third start since being recalled from Triple-A. In his two previous outings, he went six and 5 2/3 innings allowing four hits and one run in both outings after 13 appearances.

Aledmys Diaz Headshot

Aledmys Diaz went 2-for-5 with a home run, a double, three RBI and two runs scored in the Cardinals 5-4 win over the Marlins on Thursday.

One of the best stories of the Fantasy Baseball season has been the emergence of Aledmys Diaz. The shortstop has shocked the world to the tune of a .313/.378/.523 batting line through 94 games this season. The 25-year-old has 14 homers, 56 RBI, and 64 runs scored in his rookie year. Diaz parked a two-run shot off of Jose Fernandez third inning and added an RBI double in the fifth. He will face Jose Urena for the first time on Friday night. Urena will get just his third start since being recalled from Triple-A. In his two previous outings, he went six and 5 2/3 innings allowing four hits and one run in both outings after 13 appearances.

Jose Fernandez Headshot

Jose Fernandez allowed five runs on six hits and two walks with nine strikeouts over five innings in the Marlins 5-4 loss to the Cardinals on Thursday.

This was not a good outing for Fernandez on Thursday night against the Cardinals. He was popped for two long balls, a two-run shot from Aledmys Diaz and a solo shot from Matt Holliday, over six hits. The K/9 rate continues to be impressive as he picks up another nine strikeouts over just five innings of work. He has a total of 184 strikeouts in 125 2/3 innings this season. Despite the loss, the record stands at 12-5 with a 2.79 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP as Fernandez will face a tough challenge on Tuesday night against the Cubs.

Seung-Hwan Oh Headshot

Seung Hwan Oh pitched a scoreless ninth inning allowed one hit in the Cardinals 5-4 win over the Marlins on Thursday.

This 34-year-old rookie converted his third straight save in as many games on Thursday night. Oh has a 1.69 ERA with 69 strikeouts and has only allowed 14 walks over 53 1/3 innings for the Cardinals. He took the closing job from Trevor Rosenthal in June and it doesn’t look like he’ll be giving the job up anytime soon. St. Louis will continue their four game series against the Marlins on Friday night

Michael Wacha Headshot

Michael Wacha allowed three runs on four hits with two strikeouts over six innings in the Cardinals 5-4 win over the Marlins on Thursday.

The line for Wacha is deceiving because he had good control until the fifth inning when the Marlins scored three of their runs and he was pulled after six innings and just 80 pitches. Fantasy owners have to like the fact that he did not give up a walk on the night. He moved his record to 6-7 after the win with a 4.38 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP. He will take the mound next in Cincinnati against the Reds on Wednesday.

Dario Alvarez Headshot

Dario Alvarez has been recalled from Triple-A Round Rock.

Alvarez came over to the Rangers in Wednesday's trade with the Braves. He was very good for them in middle relief in 20 appearances and should stick in a similar role with the Rangers pen. Alvarez is a non-factor as he moves to the AL from the NL.

Nick Martinez Headshot

Nick Martinez has been optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday.

Martinez was sent down to clear the way for the arrival of Dario Alvarez who came over in the trade with the Braves on Wednesday. He has been ugly in his five starts this season with 20 runs allowed in 23 2/3 innings. He will try and work things out at Round Rock. Lucas Harrell is expected to take his spot in the rotation for the Rangers.

Matt Marksberry Headshot

Matt Marksberry has been recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Marksberry is getting another shot in the bigs after pitching just 1 2/3 innings for Atlanta this season. He has been very good in the minors, between Double- and Triple-A, with a 2.32 ERA in 42 2/3 innings. He will fill in in middle relief for the Braves while he is back with the big club.
