Jeremy Hellickson allowed one run on two hits and three strikeouts over seven innings of work as the Rays beat the A's 7-3.
Hellickson had his way with the ice-cold Oakland lineup. It was his fourth and best start of the season, pitching seven innings for the first time since last season. So far he looks like the Hellboy of old, and should be owned in deeper leagues. ANALYST:
Calvin Johnson (ankle) practiced on Monday.
The Lions will play the Thursday game again this week, so while they've had a full seven days to prepare, Megatron won't take his usual day off from practice. That has to be encouraging to plenty of fantasy owners as he and Matthew Stafford would like to build off such a strong Thanksgiving performance. Analysis: Howard Bender
Reds signed C Dayan Diaz to a minor league contract.
Diaz climbed up from High-A to Triple-A over two seasons in the Red Sox system and finished last year with a 1.89 ERA and 7.74 K/9 over 57 innings of relief at the highest point. He could find a place in the Reds bullpen, though he could be better suited as one of those guys who rides the shuttle between Louisville and Cincinati all year. Analysis: Howard Bender
