UPDATES & NEWS
Dustin McGowan allowed two runs on seven hits and two walks with two strikeouts over five innings against the Angels on Friday.
McGowan has now limited his opponents to two or fewer runs in each of his last three starts, but is still not worth owning in any format as he is more likely to do more long-term damage to your fantasy team than good. Also consider he has struck out just 22 batters while walking 15 in his 35 innings pitched this season and you can see wherein the danger lies.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Update: Corey Dickerson was removed from Saturday's game with a left quad injury.
While the news regarding Dickerson's plantar fasciitis was positive, he was removed after he fouled a ball off his back leg and is now day-to-day with what the team is calling a quad injury. When his leg appeared to be swollen, manager Walt Weiss opted to play it safe and remove Dickerson who had gone 0-for-3 in Saturday's game against the Giants. Consider him day-to-day for right now and figure he'll be a game-time decision for Sunday. Analysis: Howard Bender
