Eric Bledsoe scored a team-high 23 points to go with five rebounds, five assists, and two steals in the 98-92 home win over the Pistons.
The 23 points by Bledsoe were the most since he returning from injury. Bledsoe played 38 minutes Friday, which also was the most minutes since his return and only the second time in those six games in which he has played more than 30 minutes. Bledsoe should have an opportunity for another great game as he and the Suns face a TWolves team on Sunday that are allowing the fifth most fantasy points to opposing shooting guards on the season.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Wandy Rodriguez allowed just one run on five hits and three walks with five strikeouts over five innings against the Angels on Friday.
Sigh. He’s like that bad penny you just can’t get rid of, no matter how hard you try. Just when you think Major League teams have had enough of him and his boring mediocrity, someone goes and brings good ol’ Wandy back from the dead. It’s difficult to imagine that he’ll last long with the Rangers, especially with the number of home runs he normally allows, but consider this the warning to stay away. This start may not look bad on the surface, but it’s just setting you up for something downright horrible in the future. He’ll get another start next week against the Mariners, but we cannot, in good conscience, recommend using him. Analysis: Howard Bender
