Jake Peavy tossed 7.2 scoreless innings and allowed one hit and three walks with eight strikeouts during the Giants' 3-1 win over the Brewers on Saturday.

Peavy had a no-hitter going in the eighth inning until he hung a pitch that Mark Reynolds managed to poke into right field. Peavy has now thrown four straight quality starts for the Giants and has three wins, a 1.26 ERA and a 24:7 K:BB over 28.2 innings in that span. He's got a tough outing next week though as he returns to the American League to face the Tigers. You have to start him based on his recent performance, but keep your expectations in check for this one.ANALYST: Howard Bender

Lance Lynn allowed one run and six hits with one walk and six strikeouts in six innings against the White Sox on Tuesday.

Lynn had a bit of trouble with his control in his first start back from the DL with four walks, but he was better in his second start back on Tuesday with just one walk to go along with another six strikeouts. With a well above average strikeout rate for the year and a 3.44 xFIP, Lynn is a solid option from here on out. He’ll go again Sunday against the Padres. Analysis: Brett Talley

Randal Grichuk went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and double against the White Sox on Tuesday.

There’s no doubting that Grichuk’s power is legit. His ISO is no .291, and it’s not propped up at all by an unsustainably high HR/FB rate. He strikes out too much and doesn’t walk much, so he’ll really hurt your ratios when his .368 BABIP normalizes, but you can live with that for the power. Analysis: Brett Talley

David Robertson recorded his 16th save of the season against St. Louis on Tuesday allowing two hits and striking out one.

Robertson has 45 strikeouts and seven walks in 32 2/3 innings. That’s obviously an elite ratio, but Robertson has just 16 saves because of the terrible team he plays on. But with strikeout and ratio help that he gives fantasy owners, he’s still a borderline top 10 closer even without a high save total. Analysis: Brett Talley

Chris Sale allowed one run and six hits with one walk and 12 strikeouts in eight innings against St. Louis on Tuesday.

That’s nine out of Sale’s last ten starts where he has double-digit strikeouts and eight in a row. His strikeout rate is a crazy 34.6 percent. Combined with a walk rate of just 5.4 percent, he’s arguably the best starting pitcher in the game right now. He’ll go again Monday at home against Baltimore. Analysis: Brett Talley

Tyler Flowers went 2-for-5 with a game-winning solo home run in the 11th inning against St. Louis on Tuesday.

The only people who own Flowers are deep league players desperate for a little power. With a .153 ISO, Flowers is giving those owners just a little bit of power. Outside of that situation, he has no fantasy value. Analysis: Brett Talley

Dallas Keuchel threw eight scoreless innings against the Royals on Tuesday allowing seven hits and no walks with seven strikeouts.

Keuchel is insane. Before this start his ERA was 2.17, now it’s 2.03. His groundball rate was 64.5 percent and he upped that a few ticks to 64.8 percent. With an above average strikeout rate, Keuchel has added to his game the one area where he could really stand to make improvement. There are no holes in his game. He’ll go again Monday in Cleveland. Analysis: Brett Talley

Evan Gattis went 2-for-4 with a triple and a run against Kansas City on Tuesday.

Gattis will hurt you in the ratio categories, but he is on pace for 25 home runs and 90 RBI. With power so scarce, you can live with the hit to your ratios with Gattis. Analysis: Brett Talley

The Suns, Mavericks, Pacers, Grizzlies and Clippers have shown interest in Brandan Wright.

Wright is limited offensively, but he is athletic and is dangerous rolling to the rim on a pick-and-roll. He started seven games for the Suns last season, averaging 7.90 ppg and 4.9 rpg. Analysis: Steve Pimental

George Springer went 1-for-3 with a home run, two runs, two RBI and a walk against Kansas City on Tuesday.

Springer has 13 home runs and steals each and his walk rate is in double digits. The concern with Springer was always strikeouts, but his K% this year is under 30 percent. With that kind of strikeout rate, he can at least be average in batting average, so he’s a multi-cat contributor with no terrible category. Analysis: Brett Talley

Danny Duffy allowed four runs and six hits with two walks and six strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings against the Astros on Tuesday.

Duffy has 10 strikeouts compared to two walks in his first two starts back from the DL. In the past Duffy has managed success despite a high walk rate thanks to a decent strikeout rate and taking advantage of his home ball park and great outfield defense by being a fly ball pitcher. His career xFIP is 4.51, so don’t hold your breath, but there’s a chance Duffy has some value. He’ll go again Sunday at home against the Twins. Analysis: Brett Talley

Lorenzo Cain went 3-for-4 with two doubles against the Astros on Tuesday.

Cain is on pace to post career highs in home runs, runs and RBI while also being on pace to come close to 30 steals again with a solid batting average. His first half power may not hold, but nothing else in his numbers indicates his success isn’t otherwise sustainable. Analysis: Brett Talley

The Clippers have expressed interest in free-agent small forward Gerald Green.

Even after trading for Lance Stephenson, the Clippers are pretty desperate to add some athleticism off the bench. Green fits that need perfectly, but there is a pretty good chance he signs elsewhere for more money or more guaranteed playing time. Analysis: Steve Pimental
