Masahiro Tanaka improved to 5-0 after allowing just two runs on seven hits and a walk with seven strikeouts over 6.1 innings against the Brewers on Friday.
Tanaka continues to take the league by storm in his first year with the Yankees after logging yet another quality start on Friday night. He is now sitting undefeated with a 2.57 ERA and 1.00 WHIP through his first seven starts, while holding down a 58:7 K:BB ratio. As long as he continues to display great command, there is no reason to think the Yankees rookie will slow down anytime soon. He will look for win No. 6 when he takes on the Mets on Wednesday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Orioles are expected to option Tyler Wilson to Triple-A Norfolk.
Wilson's demotion to Triple-A will clear a spot in the bullpen for Oliver Drake, who's been pitching unbelievably well in Triple-A. Wilson hasn't been particularly bad since being called up, appearing in two games and posting a 4.50 ERA and a 2.50 WHIP, but Drake's performance appears to have have won him the opportunity to take that next step.

Athletics recalled Kendall Graveman from Triple-A Nashville.
Graveman will make the start in today's game against the Rays as a result of Drew Pomeranz being placed on the DL. Graveman struggled mightily in his four starts with the A's (8.27 ERA, 2.02 WHIP, 9/7 strikeout-to-walk ratio) prior to being sent back down to Triple-A, but has been dominant in his four minor leagues starts since then (1.85 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and a 14/9 strikeout-to-walk ratio).
