  • HOU Relief Pitcher #56
    Ronel Blanco fired a no-hitter on Monday against the Blue Jays.
    Unreal. Blanco worked around a pair of walks to George Springer in the first and ninth innings, respectively, to complete the first no-hitter of the 2024 season. The unheralded 30-year-old righty finished with seven strikeouts and needed just 105 pitches (73 strikes) to accomplish the feat in just his eighth career start. We’re not going to draw any sweeping conclusions based on one sublime outing, but he’s undoubtedly worthy of a fantasy roster spot when he takes the ball on Sunday against the division-rival Rangers.
  • PHI Left Fielder #12
    Kyle Schwarber went 3-for-3 with a home run, two runs scored, and two walks to power the Phillies to a 4-3 win over the Pirates.
    Schwarber had his best day of the young season at the plate. He got the scoring started early with a leadoff homer off Marco Gonzales in the first inning. After knocking a base hit in the second, he drew walks in the fourth and seventh innings before reaching for a fifth time with a base hit in the ninth. The 31-year-old slugger is batting .259/.358/.414 with three homers, 11 runs scored, and six RBI across 67 plate appearances.
  • PIT Shortstop #15
    Oneil Cruz went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer on Satuday against the Phillies.
    Cruz drove in two of the Pirates’ three runs with a two-run blast off Spencer Turnbull in the fifth inning for his only hit of the day. The 25-year-old shortstop is up to three homers with eight runs scored, six RBI, and a steal while slashing .267/.302/.433 across 63 plate appearances. He’s up to a 34.9 percent strikeout rate. Though, the Pirates have faced left-handed starters in seven of their 15 games.
  • PHI Relief Pitcher #23
    Jeff Hoffman tossed a clean ninth inning with one strikeout to fall in line for the win against the Pirates on Saturday.
    For the third consecutive outing, Hoffman was used in the ninth inning for the Phillies. Jose Alvarado pitched the eighth inning in a tie game, facing the middle of the Pirates order against two left-handed hitters. Hoffman got the ninth, striking out one in a clean frame. He fell in line for the win after the Phillies walked it off in the bottom of the inning. The 31-year-old right-hander is up to two wins and a save and should continue to be featured in high-leverage spots with a chance to earn occasional saves alongside Alvarado.
  • PHI Starting Pitcher #22
    Spencer Turnbull allowed three runs with four strikeouts over four innings on Saturday in a no-decision against the Pirates.
    Turnbull put a runner on with a walk in the first inning, then gave up a double to Ke’Bryan Hayes to bring home a run for the Pirates. He tossed three more scoreless innings before starting the fourth. A single put a runner on the bases for Oneil Cruz, who took Turnbull deep for a two-run shot to put the Pirates ahead. Turnbull walked one more batter before he was replaced on the mound by Matt Strahm. The 31-year-old right-hander will take a 1.80 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, and a 16/5 K/BB ratio across 15 innings into a great matchup against the White Sox in Philadelphia on Friday.
  • PIT Starting Pitcher #27
    Marco Gonzales allowed two runs with five strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision against the Phillies on Saturday.
    Gonzales ran into trouble right away, giving up a leadoff homer to Kyle Schwarber in the first inning. A double and a base hit would bring home one more run in the opening frame. Gonzales would have no problem after the opening frame, going five more scoreless innings for a quality start, striking out five batters. The 32-year-old left-hander ends the day with a 2.65 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and an 11/5 K/BB ratio across 17 innings. He’ll draw a start against the Red Sox in Pittsburgh on Friday.
  • BAL Third Baseman #11
    Jordan Westburg went 3-for-5 with a homer in a loss to the Brewers on Saturday.
  • BAL Catcher #35
    Adley Rutschman hit a solo homer while going 2-for-5 in a loss to the Brewers on Saturday.
  • MIL First Baseman #12
    Rhys Hoskins went 2-for-4 with a homer in a victory for the Brewers over the Orioles on Saturday.
  • MIL Left Fielder #9

  • MIL Starting Pitcher #37
    DL Hall didn’t factor into the decision Saturday against the Orioles after giving up five runs and eight hits over 3 1/3 innings.
