Tim Lincecum threw five no-hit innings against the Cubs on Wednesday but did issue four walks while striking out five.
Lincecum posted one of his best outings of the season on Wednesday night, but was unable to go past the fifth inning after throwing 94 pitches. He is now 4-3 with a 4.18 ERA and 1.54 WHIP through his first 11 starts while striking out just over one batter per inning pitched (9.10 K/9). Although he hasn't been able to bounce back completely to his Cy Young Award days, he is still a solid fantasy option to deploy as the season progresses. Lincecum will look to keep up his recent production when he takes on the Reds on Tuesday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Kendrys Morales went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored in the Royals 7-1 win over the Twins on Monday.
Morales is raking to start the season, hitting .358 with 12 runs, two home runs and nine RBI as the Royals everyday DH and cleanup hitter. 2014 was a lost year for Morales as he struggled to find a role with the Mariners and Twins but he showed capable of being a productive player over the two seasons prior where he hits a combined 45 home runs over the two years. Morales was one of the more promising offensive players in the league before a devastating ankle injury nearly ended his career in 2010 but if his hot start is any indication of things to come those who took a chance on Kendrys could be in for a solid season.
