Neil Walker Headshot

Walker went 3-for-5 with two homers, three runs and four RBI Friday against the Pirates.

Walker left the yard twice against Chad Kuhl to help lead the Mets to an easy victory. Although he struggled to find his power stroke earlier in the season, he's hit four of his six homers since May 12, and fantasy owners now have hope that the big power he showed last season could be returning.

Chad Kuhl Headshot

Kuhl (1-5) allowed five runs on eight hits while striking out three over 4.1 innings to take the loss Friday against the Mets.

Kuhl gave up a pair of homers to Neil Walker, and he was unable to keep the Pirates in the game in his matchup against Jacob DeGrom. With an ERA of 6.29, he's not a pitcher that fantasy owners can place much trust in unless he strings together a few solid outings in a row. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.
10:22 pm (EST)
Jacob deGrom Headshot

DeGrom (4-1) allowed one run on six hits and one walk while striking out 10 over 8.1 innings to earn the win Friday against the Pirates.

DeGrom had plenty of run support as he coasted to an easy victory. After a string of three mediocre starts, he's been dominant over his last two outings while lowering his ERA to 3.23. He's also been overpowering hitters, as he's fanned 37 batters over his last 27.1 innings, and he's been well worth the price that fantasy owners paid for him on draft day. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Brewers.
10:17 pm (EST)
Scott Schebler Headshot

Schebler went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Friday against the Phillies.

Schebler launched his 14th bomb of the campaign to give the Reds a three-run lead in the second inning of a winning effort. Despite a subpar batting average, he's been an outstanding source of power for fantasy owners, and he's now hit four homers over his last six contests.
10:11 pm (EST)
Asher Wojciechowski Headshot

Wojciechowski will start Tuesday against the Blue Jays, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

A rainout Thursday forced the Reds to rearrange their rotation, as Wojciechowski was initially looking at a Sunday spot start in place of the injured Amir Garrett. Either way, Wojciechowski is not currently expected to become a permanent member of Cincinnati's rotation, and he'll likely be back in the bullpen once Garrett is healthy.
10:10 pm (EST)
Adam Duvall Headshot

Duvall went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs Friday against the Phillies.

Duvall's 11th blast of the year extended the Reds lead in the first inning of the game in which they'd never trail. He's homered in each of his last two games, and his solid .270/.314/.522 slash line has made him a strong fantasy option.
10:10 pm (EST)
Aaron Nola Headshot

Nola (2-2) allowed five runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five across six innings to take the loss Friday against the Reds.

Nola gave up a pair of runs in the first inning on a night the Phillies bats were quiet, and he was unable to keep them in the contest. He's failed to post a quality start in two of his last three outings, and his ERA has risen from 3.27 to 4.34, but the fact he's struck out 35 hitters over his last 38 innings make him a useful fantasy option in most leagues. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Marlins.
10:00 pm (EST)
Tim Adleman Headshot

Adleman (3-2) pitched eight shutout innings on one hit and two walks while striking out four to earn the win Friday against the Phillies.

Adleman came up with his best start of the season after having allowed nine earned runs over his previous 5.2 innings. Despite his excellent outing that lowered his ERA to 4.95, he's too inconsistent to trust on a regular basis in fantasy lineups. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Blue Jays.
9:59 pm (EST)
Koda Glover Headshot

Glover struck out the only batter he faced to earn his fourth save of the season Friday against the Padres.

Glover closed out a 5-1 victory for Max Scherzer on just four pitches. The Nationals new closer has converted four straight save opportunities, and he's been a boost to fantasy owners were able to add him to their rosters.
9:45 pm (EST)
Michael Taylor Headshot

Taylor went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer Friday against the Padres.

Taylor blasted his third bomb of the campaign to break a 1-1 tie that the Nationals would never relinquish. He's been a disappointing fantasy option this year, as evidenced by his .266/.302/.431 slash line.
