Jonathan Papelbon took the loss Wednesday after allowing three runs on one hit and two walks with two strikeouts over one inning of work against the Giants.
He's not really endearing himself to too many teams with a performance like this, especially after it follows another rough outing from the night before. Papelbon takes the loss hear after blowing the save the other night and has now allowed four runs on three hits and two walked with four strikeouts over three innings. He's obviously still a strong candidate to be traded, but outings like these unfortunately increase the chances of more teams looking to use him as a set-up man rather than their closer. His future value obviously lies with where he ultimately ends up so stay tuned. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Dwyane Wade (knee) is listed as questionable for Friday's game.
Wade didn't play on Wednesday due to a sore knee, so of course he is questionable for Friday. If he isn't in the starting lineup, Mario Chalmers will once again get the start and see a bump in value. Wade has been relatively healthy this season and has produced in a big way in the process. He's averaging 21.6 points and 5.2 assists per game. Analysis: David Kerr
Ross Detwiler has made the Rangers starting rotation.
There are far worse pitchers with starting jobs in baseball, so Detwiler is deserving of this chance. He's bounced back and forth between the starting rotation and the bullpen while pitching for the Nationals, but should settle in as a member of the Rangers' rotation. He has solid value in AL-Only leagues. Analysis: David Kerr
