Jeff Samardzija allowed two runs on seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts over six innings against the Twins on Saturday.

Samardzija improved to 3-1 since being dealt to the A's following Saturday's performance, although he now has just five wins total on the season. Since joining the A's rotation, Samardzija is posting a 3.08 ERA and 0.91 WHIP through 49.1 innings while maintaining a solid 35:7 K:BB rate. However, he has now allowed six home runs in that same stretch, after giving up only seven home runs in 108.1 innings as a member of the Cubs. While this should be alarming to fantasy owners, it should not lead to second guessing when it is his turn on the hill as it is just something to monitor down the stretch. He will look to keep up the pace when he takes on the Royals on Thursday.
