Zack Greinke gave up just one run on four hits with no walks and 10 strikeouts over seven innings against the Cardinals on Saturday.
Greinke was back to his dominant ways on Saturday, improving to 10-4 after posting a 10-strikeout performance. After allowing five runs in his previous outing, Greinke bounce back nicely and is now sitting on a 2.78 ERA and 1.17 WHIP through his first 17 starts, while maintaining an impressive 111:20 K:BB rate over 103.2 innings. He will look to keep moving in the right direction when he takes on the Rockies on Thursday at Coors Field. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Indians optioned P Josh Tomlin to Triple-A Columbus.
Tomlin has some upside if he can repeat his 8.13 K/9 from last season, but home runs will likely always be an issue. Tomlin has allowed 1.41 HR/9 over his big league career, far too high for him to be a consistent fantasy producer. He will almost certainly be in the rotation at some point and could even get the call up before Danny Salazar even though Salazar has far more upside for fantasy. Analysis: Steve Pimental
