Dillon Gee gave up three runs on six hits and a walk with one strikeout over six innings against the Phillies on Saturday.
After pitching back-to-back shutouts, Gee was unable to keep up the pace on Saturday but did not factor into the decision. He is now the owner of a 3-1 record with a 2.73 ERA and 1.06 WHIP through eight starts while holding down a 33:15 K:BB ratio. Although his strikeouts are not at the level we would like to see, his production in the other categories have made him a solid fantasy option regardless of the format. Gee will be looking to get back to his winning ways when he takes on the Yankees on Thursday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Alex Avila feels he's ready to return as the Tigers everyday catcher.
While Avila feels he's ready again for full-time duty, manager Brad Ausmus and the Tigers have been down this road with him all too often. He id as injury-prone as a guy can be and while this most-recent issue involved the knee, you can't help but remember the concussion issues that have plagued him over the last few seasons. One wrong foul tip and he could be done. He might see the lion's share of a platoon, but it seems doubtful that he would just be handed over the reins after such a lengthy absence and injury history.

Yankees announce Nathan Eovaldi will start on Wednesday.
Eovaldi gets the ball on normal rest while Adam Warren will slide to the bullpen. After being acquired from the Marlins, Eovaldi has had a rough time in New York with a 1.543 WHIP and 4.81 ERA, both the highest in his career. His xFIP is almost a full run lower at 3.84 meaning he could see some good fortune in the near future. Analysis: Rob Trayah
