Myles Jaye Headshot

Tigers have purchased Myles Jaye's contract from Triple-A Toledo.

Added 11/04/16 10:39 am (EST)   Source
The 24 year old spent time in both double and triple A last season for the Tigers, finishing with a 5-12 record with a 3.95 ERA over 28 starts. He was originally drafted by the Blue Jays in 2010, and the Tigers acquired him this past March in a trade with the Rangers.
Deven Marrero Headshot

Marrero went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and three strikeouts in Boston's 6-2 win over Texas on Thursday.

Added 8:34 am (EST)
Marrero has stabilized third base defensively for Boston, starting the last 11 games there, but an offensively significant night remains a rarity. The homer was his first of the season and just his third extra-base hit. His .518 OPS won't play over the long haul but he will be the primary third sacker until Pablo Sandoval (knee) is ready to be activated off the disabled list. Even then, the position will remain in a state of flux as Boston's third basemen rank 29th in WAR, according to FanGraphs.
Xander Bogaerts Headshot

Bogaerts went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Rangers. The homer was his first of the season.

Added 8:25 am (EST)
It took 181 plate appearances for Bogaerts to hit his first homer, but that doesn't mean he hasn't produced. Thursday's multi-hit effort was his third straight and 11th in 22 games during the month of May. The shortstop leads Boston in hits, runs, stolen bases, batting average and on-base percentage. His track record has been that of a hitter who heats up as the weather gets warmer and that pattern is playing out once again in 2017.
Craig Kimbrel Headshot

Kimbrel worked in a non-save situation Thursday and struck out all four batters faced in Boston's 6-2 win over Texas.

Added 8:18 am (EST)
Kimbrel achieved a rarity as all four strikeouts came in one inning. The first batter he faced struck out swinging on a wild pitch but reached first base. He really needed the work as Kimbrel hadn't pitched in six days and hadn't sniffed a save opportunity since May 16. He's now struck out 40 batters and walked two in 20.2 innings.
Drew Pomeranz Headshot

Pomeranz allowed two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out 11 in Thursday's 6-2 win over Texas.

Added 8:12 am (EST)
Pomeranz totaled just 10 innings in his previous three starts, including a four-inning outing five days ago after which he and manager John Farrell had a heated discussion in the dugout. There was not such acrimony Thursday as the left-hander went six innings for the first time in five starts and delivered an efficient 96-pitch, bullpen-saving effort. His next scheduled start is Wednesday on the road against the White Sox and Mike Pelfrey.
Lucas Duda Headshot

Duda went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two RBI in a loss to the Padres on Thursday.

Added 7:55 am (EST)
Duda hit his first home run since April 14, a welcome sight for fantasy owners who have been looking for the slugger to regain his power stroke since returning from the disabled list on May 12. His slash line since coming back from injury is a pedestrian .250/.426/.417, but he may be starting to heat up with five hits in his last three games.
Ben Zobrist Headshot

Zobrist went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Thursday's win over San Francisco.

Added 7:51 am (EST)
The veteran is putting together a mini heater with a 12-for-27 stretch at the dish over his past seven games, and Zobrist has five extra-base hits, five RBI and four runs with a 1.353 OPS during that span. Another serviceable cross-category campaign is already underway, and while Zobrist could receive a few more games off than in past years, it might allow him to be more productive while in the lineup.
Rafael Montero Headshot

Montero (0-4) allowed three runs on five hits and three walks over three innings in a loss to the Padres on Thursday. He struck out four.

Added 7:45 am (EST)
It was a tough outing in a spot start for Montero, who now sits with an ugly 8.24 ERA and 2.54 WHIP on the season. While his FIP of 5.06 suggests that he has been the victim of some seriously bad luck, he's far from a reliable arm when it comes to fantasy, especially with a 7.78 BB/9. He's slated to rejoin the bullpen, but should continue to be an option for spot starts if needed.
Mike Montgomery Headshot

Montgomery pitched four scoreless innings to collect his first save of the season during Thursday's win over San Francisco. He allowed just a single hit and walk.

Added 7:42 am (EST)
This was an encouraging outing because Montgomery had allowed five runs through just 2.2 innings over his previous two appearances. For the campaign, he owns a serviceable 2.27 ERA, but his 1.33 WHIP and 6.0 K/9 aren't helpful ratios. Additionally, Montgomery isn't pitching in enough high-leverage situations to tilt the fantasy scales in the majority of settings.
Luke Gregerson Headshot

Gregerson (2-1) was unable to hold a lead in the eighth inning Thursday, allowing a run on one hit and two walks in Houston's 7-6 win over Detroit.

Added 7:35 am (EST)
Gregerson managed to eke out the win when the Astros plated the game-winning run in the bottom of the eighth, but it was not an encouraging performance from the once-reliable setup man. Manager A.J. Hinch assiduously avoided using Gregerson in high-leverage situations over the past few weeks following a two-game flameout in early May, but the manager reversed the pattern Thursday, using Will Harris in the seventh. Gregerson has allowed seven runs, nine hits, three home runs and three walks over his last 7.1 innings.
Hoby Milner Headshot

Milner could be close to earning a promotion to the majors, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Added 7:08 am (EST)
Milner has not allowed a run in 18.1 innings for Triple-A Lehigh Valley this season. He has struck out 15 and walked two. The lefty doesn't have overpowering stuff, but he has a sidearm delivery that makes it difficult for hitters to pick up the ball. The Phillies lack a dominant lefty in their pen, so Milner is likely to get a look in the near future.
