Tyson Ross tossed his first career complete-game shutout allowing just three hit and no walks while striking out nine batters in Wednesday's win over the Reds.
Ross recorded his best performance of the season on Wednesday, allowing only thee hits in his first career shutout. He is now sitting 7-8 with a 2.93 ERA and 1.20 WHIP over his first 18 starts while maintaining a 111:42 K:BB rate. Ross has now allowed two runs or less in four of his last five starts, so continue starting him every time he takes the mound until he proves otherwise. He will look to keep up the pace when he takes on the Rockies next week. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Kevin Garnett and the Timberwolves agree on a 2 year deal.
It is only fitting that the Timberwolves would resign their legend Kevin Garnett on the same day that they sign the new face of their franchise, the number one pick in the draft Karl-Anthony Towns. "I'm incredibly excited and rejuvenated to be part of this talented, committed team," said the 39-year old Garnett. You should expect to see him about 20 minutes per game this season but not really a fantasy relevant player anymore. Analysis: Drew Phelps
John Jaso has been activated off the disabled list.
It's been 10 weeks since Jaso went down with the wrist injury, but he's finally made his way back. The next few games should be a decent warm-up for him and he could be a decent pick-up for the second half. Look for him to work mostly as a DH, but manager Kevin Cash could move him around the field depending on need. Analysis: Howard Bender
