FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Jeff Samardzija gave up four runs (three earned) on six hits with no walks and 10 strikeouts against the Giants on Monday.

Samardzija was finally able to pick up his first win of the season on Monday, as he improved to 1-4 with a 1.68 ERA and 1.07 WHIP through his first 11 starts. He has been one of the best pitcher to take the mound in 2014 and now that he has found the win column, hopefully his great pitching can lead to much more in the future. The Cubs ace will look to start a win streak when he takes on the Brewers on Sunday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck

Andrew Miller picked up save No. 8, giving up a hit and striking out one in New York's 4-1 win over Tampa Bay.

Miller gave up his first hit in his last four outing, but it caused no harm. He has put a strangle-hold on the closer role even thought Dellin Betances has yet to give-up a run this season. The tall left-handed reliever now has 17 strikeouts in just 9 1/3 innings while allowing just seven baserunners. If you got him on the waiver wire, Miller owners are smiling knowing that being patience might have paid off in the draft. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Brian McCann went 2-for-4 with solo home-run to go with two runs as the Yankees beat the Rays, 4-1.

After receiving a day-off on Sunday, McCann hit his second homer of the season, his first in over ten games. He has alternated multi-hit games during his last six starts, but the power has not been there. If McCann is able to find the short-porch in right, his numbers can see an uptick, but if not, his fantasy owners might be in for a long season. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Adam Warren went 5 2/3 innings striking out six while giving up one run on five hits at the Yankees beat the Rays, 4-1.

Warren's effort ended in a no decision, but it was solid start as he has yet to get to through six innings. It was his season-high in strikeouts with six, but his 2:8 GB/FB ratio is a scary number. This was probably his best effort of the season, but it won't get much better if you're expecting anything more. Analysis: Rob Trayah
