Player AlarmsView All
J. Eickhoff - SP
Eickhoff (0-1) allowed four earned runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out eight across six innings to take the loss Sunday against the Rockies.
Eickhoff danced in and out of trouble in his first start of the season, but handled Coors fairly well by allowing only two extra-base hits and no home runs. He entered the sixth inning having allowed only one earned run but ultimately let the first four runners he faced reach base, leading to a three-run inning. He'll be in a much better environment to succeed in his next start, which comes at home against Miami.
Added 8:57 pm (EST)
T. Anderson - SS
Anderson went 1-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and two stolen bases in Sunday's 4-3 loss to Detroit.
Anderson returned to action after missing one game due to a suspension, but the break didn't slow his roll to start 2019. The fourth-year shortstop, who ranks 11th with a 1.085 OPS, has a major-league leading nine steals.
Added 8:53 pm (EST)
Galvis left Sunday's game against the Athletics due to stiffness in his left leg, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Galvis exited Sunday's action in the ninth inning after trying to field a Stephen Piscotty grounder. This diagnosis is seemingly positive news for Galvis, who has gotten off to a hot start at the dish, hitting .315/.337/.528 over 92 plate appearances. If Galvis were to miss any time, Richard Urena would be the likely beneficiary.
Added 8:43 pm (EST)
R. López - SP
Lopez allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits while striking out eight in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Tigers.
Lopez didn't get much support from the offense, which didn't score during his six innings, and was a victim of shoddy outfield defense. He pitched well enough to win. After an ugly first three starts, Lopez has returned to his 2018 form over the last two outings, both quality starts. He'll look to retain that form in his next start Saturday at home against these same Tigers.
Added 8:35 pm (EST)
A. Chafin - RP
Chafin walked one and struck out one over a scoreless eighth inning in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Cubs.
Chafin has not allowed a run over his last five outings, a stretch that includes two holds. He's mostly a lefty specialist and often throws less than an inning, which makes it difficult to find a role for him in a fantasy lineup.
Added 8:14 pm (EST)
Galvis left Sunday's game against the Athletics with an apparent leg injury, Laura Armstrong of the Toronto Star reports.
Galvis attempted to make a play on a groundball by Stephen Piscotty in the ninth inning and was grabbing at the back of his leg afterwards. The extent of the injury is unclear, though Richard Urena would likely gain playing time if Galvis is out for any amount of time.
Added 8:10 pm (EST)
A. Sanchez - SP
Manager Charlie Montoyo is hopeful Sanchez (finger) will be able to make his next start, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Sanchez was lifted early from Sunday's game against the Athletics after suffering a broken fingernail. While blisters have cost him time in the past, this news appears to be more optimistic.
Added 8:03 pm (EST)
A. Bradley - RP
Bradley (1-2) allowed a run on two hits and a hit batsman without recording an out in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Cubs.
The Diamondbacks tied the game in the top of the ninth and turned it over to Bradley, who is still searching for the 2017 version of himself. Javier Baez, who doubled to leadoff the inning and advanced to third base on an error, scored the walkoff run on a David Bote single. It was the third time in the last four outings that Bradley's had some difficulty.
