Rudy Gay was traded to the Kings, league sources tell Yahoo Sports. He has been pulled out of the Raptors lineup for Sunday's game.

Cole Hamels went eight innings, allowed five hits, and struck out nine batters on Friday night.

Hamels equally dueled Bettis on Friday night, as he lasted eight innings and struck out nine batters, even though the Philles fell to the Rockies by the score of 4-1. Considering the Phillies struggles this season, Hamels name has come up in trade talks a ton, but now that he has straightened out his game, expect him to be an even more hot commodity on the market come deadline time.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Jose Abreu left Friday's game early with irritation in his right index finger.

There was no word on what caused the irritation or how it will affect him in the coming days, so look for the White Sox to update his condition before Saturday's game. He was 2-for-4 with a pair of singles Friday before leaving the game. Analysis: Howard Bender

Chad Bettis went eight innings, allowed zero runs, and struck out seven batters on Friday night.

Make it back-to-back games where Bettis has gone eight innings or more, as he pitched an eight inning shutout against the Phillies on Friday night. Currently on the season, his 2-0 record and 2.96 ERA renders him as a legitimate option in most fantasy leagues going forward.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Ben Paulsen went 1-for-1 with a pinch hit home run on Friday night.

Paulsen’s home run was of the pinch-hit variety on Friday night, so that should tell you everything you need to know about his fantasy value going forward. Although he is batting .370, he will not be a factor in many fantasy matchups going forward.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Troy Tulowitzki went 4-for-4 with two home runs on Friday night.

Tulo had himself a day on Friday night, as he went 4-for-4 with two home runs. This type of day comes as no surprise to most, as everyone knows what the shortstop is capable of when fully healthy. The real trick when being a Tulowitzski owner is to know how to properly handcuff him due to his frequent injuries.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Yonder Alonso (shoulder) moved his rehab to Triple-A El Paso on Friday.

Despite going 1-for-6 at High-A Lake Elsinore, the Padres feel that Alonso is ready to come back sooner than later. He'll head to El Paso for the weekend and could be activated Monday. Analysis: Howard Bender

Brandon Morrow (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a side session Saturday.

Morrow fared well in his simulated game and manager Bud Black would like him to head to his rehab assignment. The team still needs to decide which level he'll start at, so the bullpen session is just to keep him on his regular throwing schedule.  Analysis: Howard Bender

Reliever Edward Mujica will get the stitches out of his fractured right thumb in the next couple of days, but it’s unlikely he’ll try throwing for another week or so.

While Mujica won't resume throwing for another week and won't rteturn when he is eligible June 4, the A's still believe he will return fairly close to that date. There is talk of him skipping a rehab outing and just re-entering the bullpen when he is ready. Analysis: Howard Bender

Chris Davis hit his 12th home run of the season on Friday night... His fourth in his last four games.

Chris Davis has been on a mini tear of late, clocking four home runs in his last four games, and recording 10 RBI in his last six. The power surge is something that fantasy owners should take note of, as it is well documented that Davis is a streaky hitter. Play him while he is still hot.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Souza Jr. went 1-for-4 with a home run on Friday night.

The home run was Souza’s eighth of the season, but he really is only relevant in leagues that are lenient on batting average, as he sports a .224, or in deeper leagues, where power numbers are at a premium. In any event, his defense has been impressive this season, just as his power stroke has been too.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Nathan Karns went six innings and only allowed one hit and two walks. He struck out seven batters on his way to a no decision on Friday night.

Karns pitched a shutout through six innings on Friday night, while striking out seven batters. He has only allowed more than two runs in two outings so far this season, rendering him as a player to own going forward in this 2015 season.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Miguel González lasted eight innings, allowed one run, three hits, and struck out six batters on Friday night.

Gonzalez lasted an impressive eight innings on Friday night and only took 96 pitches to get the job done, while the O’s picked up the 2-1 victory against the Rays. After getting knocked around in his last two starts, it was good to see Gonzalez pick himself up and put together one of the more quality starts of his career. On the season, he is sporting a 5-3 record with a 3.48 ERA, which is definitely fantasy worthy, so expect him to finish up as one of the Orioles better starters this season.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Update: Stephen Strasburg was removed from Friday's start with left trapezius muscle (neck) tightness. He'll be evaluated on Saturday.

Much to the chagrin of his owners, the injury issues continue to mount for Strasburg. His shoulder issue supposedly stemmed from adjustments he made to compensate for the ankle issue he was dealing with during spring training. So basically it's just moving up his body here and he's going to need some time off to tweak his mechanics again. There's no talk of a DL stint yet, but don't be surprised to see him go or, at the least, miss another start. Analysis: Howard Bender
