Tom Coughlin is unsure if David Wilson (neck) will be ready for training camp.

Felix Hernandez allowed seven earned runs on 12 hits while walking one and striking out seven over 6.2 innings in the Mariners 8-2 loss to the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

The Diamondbacks had King Felix’s number early and often as they tagged him for seven earned runs over 6.2 innings. The loss drops Hernandez to 12-6 on the season with a 3.02 ERA and 1.12 WHIP while he has struck out 131 over 137 innings. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Welington Castillo went 2-for-3 with two home runs, three RBI and two runs scored in the Diamondbacks 8-2 win over the Mariners on Wednesday.

Castillo continues to rake since coming over to the Diamondbacks as he has now hit eight of his 10 home runs while playing with Arizona. Overall on the season Castillo is hitting .235 with 25 runs, 10 home runs and 26 RBI which has made him a solid fantasy option given his production. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-5 with two RBI and one run scored in the Diamondbacks 8-2 win over the Mariners on Wednesday.

Goldschmidt continues to rake as the best player in fantasy upped his RBI totals to 77 on the year to go with 67 runs, 22 home runs, 17 stolen bases and a .347 batting average. With good health Goldschmidt finds himself on pace to match or set new career highs in nearly every category and should be he favorite for the NL MVP. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Patrick Corbin allowed one earned run on three hits while walking two and striking out six over six innings in the Diamondbacks 8-2 win over the Mariners on Wednesday.

Corbin tossed his second straight quality start on Wednesday as he picked up his second win of the year to bring his record to 2-3. In his five starts since coming off the DL Corbin owns a 3.21 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP while striking out 29 over 28 innings. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Bartolo Colon went 2 1/3 innings, allowed six runs, on 10 hits, and struck out one in a loss on Wednesday night against the Padres.

After going the first month of the season looking like the second coming of Cy Young, Colon has appeared lost out on the mound for the rest of 2015, pitching to a near 5.00 ERA and losing six of his last nine starts. He has had some nice games sprinkled in there here and there, but his inconsistency is what makes him unplayable at this point in the season. Without higher strikeout numbers, Colon has become a guy that is too big of a risk to carry on a roster.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Tyson Ross went five innings, allowed one run, on two hits, and four walks, while striking out five in a win against the Mets on Wednesday night.

Ross was average on Wednesday night while trying to pitch through the rumors of his name being on the trade block. For teams interested, he’s the perfect middle of the rotation arm with electric stuff. His control issue reared it’s ugly head on Wednesday night, as he walked four batters, but he still managed to pick up the win after going five innings, allowing one run, on two hits, and striking out five. The win was his seventh of the season, and if he does indeed get traded, it would presumably be to a contender, so expect that total to climb over the rest of the season. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Jung Ho Kang went 3-for-5 with a solo home run in the Pirates 10-4 win over the Twins on Wednesday.

Kang hit his seventh home run of the season on Wednesday to go with 36 runs, 33 RBI, five stolen bases and a .295 average. After hitting 40 home runs in Korea many wondered how well his game would transfer when he arrived to the majors and while the power decline was expected he has shown the ability to hit for a good average and owns a solid .811 OPS. Kang has shortstop eligibility in most leagues and given how shallow the position they have to be thrilled with his production to this point given his uncertainty.  Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Andrew McCutchen went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored in the Pirates 10-4 win over the Twins on Wednesday.

McCutchen launched his 14th home run of the season on Wednesday to go with 54 runs, 64 RBI, five stolen bases and a .290 batting average. After a slow start to the season McCutchen has really turned it on and those who drafted him with an early first round pick are finally getting their returns. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Francisco Liriano allowed three runs (two earned) on 10 hits while striking out four over 5.2 innings in the Pirates 10-4 win over the Twins on Wednesday.

Liriano was not at his best on Wednesday but the Pirates offense put up 10 runs of support to get him his seventh win of the season. The two earned runs brings his season ERA to 2.92 as he continues to be a legitimate fantasy option whenever he takes the mound. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Miguel Sano went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI in the Twins 10-4 loss to the Pirates on Wednesday.

The two hit effort raised Sano's batting average to .299 on the year to go with 10 runs, three home runs and 13 RBI. The 22 year old rookie has not shown any signs of struggles with major league pitching and while he is still striking out plenty his overall production has not suffered. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
