Manager Ron Washington was ejected from Monday's game for arguing a call on replay.

Washington has issues with the new transfer rule and didn't agree with a call at home plate. He was by rule ejected automatically for arguing the call. ANALYST:

Chris Carter went 1-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and one run scored against the Angels on Tuesday.

The boom-or-bust label definitely applies to Chris Carter. More often than not, he is going to strike out or hit a home run when he steps up to the plate. He homered today and struck out twice, living up to that boom-or-bust label. He is hitting just .185 on the season and he is the ultimate power threat who will destroy your batting average. Keep in mind that Carter has homered or struck out in just under 45-percent of his at-bats season. Wow. Analysis: Colby Conway

Jose Altuve went 3-for-5 with a double, five RBI and one run scored against the Angels on Tuesday.

After a 0-fer performance on Sunday, it was nice to see Altuve bounce back in a big way tonight. His three hits and five RBI were a great boost for owners who have Altuve on their team. If you chose Altuve in DFS, he definitely exceeded his value and likely helped push you in the money. He is one of the best second baseman and he should never leave your lineup. Analysis: Colby Conway

Carlos Correa went 3-for-4 with a home run, a walk, one RBI and one run scored on Tuesday against the Angels.

Correa’s impressive rookie campaign continues. He has been everything the Astros could have hoped for this season. He now has nine homers and 28 RBI on the year, to go along with his quality .299 average. At a thin position, Correa is a valuable asset to have and he is good enough to be your everyday shortstop. Analysis: Colby Conway

Adam Morgan worked six solid innings in Tuesday’s 3-2 win over the Blue Jays, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks while collecting a couple of strikeouts.

Considering this effort came at Toronto against one of the best lineups in baseball, Morgan turned in perhaps the most impressive of his six big-league starts to date. The 25-year-old southpaw wrapped up his first full month in the majors with a 4.55 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 14-to-8 K/BB ratio across 27 2/3 innings (five starts). Morgan will climb back atop the hill Sunday afternoon versus the Braves in a potentially stream-worthy matchup. Analysis: Nate Miller

Ken Giles picked up a save in Tuesday’s 3-2 win over the Blue Jays, retiring 3-of-4 batters in a scoreless bottom of the ninth.

Well, there it is. With Jonathan Papelbon now out of the mix, Giles is finally in the closers role for the Phillies. The 24-year-old flamethrower pitched to an impressive 1.85 ERA and 11.1 K/9 while recording 12 holds as a setup man this year. Obviously, he is now a must-own hurler in all fantasy formats. However, a lack of save chances will almost assuredly hold down Giles value a bit during the last two months of the 2015 season. Analysis: Nate Miller

Cody Asche went 2-for-3 with a double, two RBI and a run scored during Tuesday’s 3-2 victory versus the Blue Jays.

Asche has suddenly gotten hot for the Phillies, so those in N.L.-only formats should take notice. During his current five-game hitting streak, Asche has gone 8-for-22 with a triple, four doubles, six RBI and four runs scored. Analysis: Nate Miller

Felix Doubront lasted four-plus innings in Tuesday’s 3-2 loss to the Phillies, giving up three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three.

Doubront appeared to be headed toward a nice night on the mound, as he shutout the Phillies offense over the first four frames of Tuesdays contest. However, after the first four batters of the fifth inning reached base, plating three runs in the process, Doubront was lifted and ultimately went on to suffer the loss. The 27-year-old lefty is scheduled to bring his 4.76 ERA and 1.63 WHIP to the mound Sunday afternoon versus the Royals. Obviously, that is a matchup that no fantasy manager should go anywhere near. Analysis: Nate Miller

Addison Reed was recalled from Triple-A Reno to replace Randall Delgado, who was placed on the disabled list.

Reed was not able to fix his control issues in the minors, walking five batters in 11 innings at Triple-A. If he cannot figure out how to limit his walks, he is going to be right back in the minors.  Analysis: Steve Pimental

Joe Panik has a stiff back and needs another day off, according to Giants manager Bruce Bochy. Ehire Adrianza will start Wednesday.

That is good news for Mike Fiers, as he gets to face Adrianza and his career .252 wOBA. Panik should be back soon though it is possible he will still need another day or two off. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Chris Davis went 2-for-4 with a pair of homers and five total RBI during Tuesday night’s 7-3 win against the Braves.

Davis appears to be setting the stage for a big second half. The 29-year-old slugger went deep in each of the first two innings Tuesday night and has now launched five bombs while hitting safely in 10-of-11 games since the All-Star break. Analysis: Nate Miller

Ubaldo Jimenez tossed seven strong innings in Tuesday’s 7-3 victory versus the Braves, giving up two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out three.

With back-to-back disastrous outings to begin the second half, Jimenez rebounded for his eighth win of the season Tuesday night. The lanky right-hander allowed a single and a two-run homer during the top of the first inning, but dominated the Braves lineup over the next half-dozen frames. Jimenez will look to build off of this effort Sunday afternoon against the Tigers. Analysis: Nate Miller

Freddie Freeman went 1-for-5 with a two-run homer during Tuesday’s 7-3 loss to the Orioles.

Freeman has gone just 2-for-14 since returning from a near six-week stay on the DL, but he definitely got all of a Ubaldo Jimenez delivery in the top of the first inning Tuesday night. Freeman is understandably dealing with some rust in his swing. However, the two-time All-Star has a proven track record of high-level production. Fantasy owners who are patient with the Braves first baseman will be rewarded. Analysis: Nate Miller

Julio Teheran labored through four innings in Tuesday’s 7-3 loss to the Orioles, allowing five runs on five hits and four walks while striking out four.

Teherans road woes popped up yet again Tuesday night. This time around, Baltimores Camden Yards was the venue. Of the 18 roundtrippers that Teheran has allowed so far this season, 15 have come away from Atlanta. The 24-year-old hurler has pitched at an ace level at home in Turner Field, going 5-1 with a 2.37 ERA across 10 starts. However, he will carry a 7.24 road ERA into Philadelphia on Sunday afternoon. Analysis: Nate Miller

Pablo Sandoval went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Tuesday night’s 9-4 loss to the White Sox.

Putting up his third consecutive two-hit performance, Sandoval has suddenly gotten hot following an 0-for-18 slide last week. Overall, the veteran switch-hitter has gone 6-for-13 with a double, a homer and four RBI during the past three days.  Analysis: Nate Miller

Wade Miley tossed 5 2/3 innings in Tuesday’s 9-4 loss to the White Sox, surrendering seven runs on 10 hits and three walks while striking out five.

After giving up just one earned and five hits over his last two starts (13 innings), Miley fell victim to an ambush by the White Sox offense Tuesday night. The Red Sox lefty was staring at a five-run deficit before getting out of the first inning and was tagged for two additional tallies prior to his exit in the top of the sixth. Miley will look to put this outing behind him and get back on track Sunday afternoon versus the Rays. Analysis: Nate Miller
