  • SEA Starting Pitcher #58
    Luis Castillo delivered a dominant performance in Saturday night’s victory over the Rockies at Coors Field, racking up nine strikeouts over seven innings of scoreless baseball.
    Castillo scattered two hits and one walk on the marvelous evening. He retired the first seven hitters in order until Sean Bouchard worked a one-out walk in the third inning and didn’t allow a hit until Elias Diaz smacked a two-out single in the fourth. The 31-year-old right-hander piled up 19 swings and misses on 96 pitches on the night — 11 on his heater — while posting a strong CSW of 31 percent. Hopefully this is exactly what he needed to right the ship. He’ll look keep the good times rolling as he brings a 4.40 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and a 36/5 K/BB ratio (28 2/3 innings) into Friday’s showdown against the Diamondbacks.
  • ATL Relief Pitcher #58
    Ray Kerr allowed five earned runs across four innings on Friday against the Pirates. He struck out six and walked one.
    This was the first start for Kerr as a major leaguer and just the third he’s made at any level since 2021. The Pirates jumped on him in the first and the final line is ugly, but overall this was an encouraging outing for the 29-year-old lefty. He induced 13 swings and misses including eight from his curveball on his in just 13 swings. The pitch is downright nasty to go along with a fastball that touched 99 MPH and a splitter he threw more sparingly. This is a more exciting repertoire than what the recently demoted Bryce Elder brings to the table and makes Kerr worth of keeping an eye on.
  • PIT Second Baseman #39
    Nick Gonzales went 2-for-3 with a double, walk, four RBI, and run scored in a win against the Braves on Friday.
    Gonzales has been an RBI machine with 13 in 13 starts since being called up on May 10th along with five extra-base hits. His batted ball metrics match the power output thus far despite his lack of plate discipline. The Pirates offense has looked much better with him in the lineup and he should remain a fixture for them at second base while he hits like this.
  • ATL Right Fielder #13
    Ronald Acuña Jr. went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run on Friday in a loss to the Pirates.
    Acuña sent Bailey Falter packing in the eighth inning, but only cut the Pirates lead to 11-3. The full season line remains a disappointment, but his OPS has trickled up to .712 which is in the same range as teammates Ozzie Albies and Matt Olson.
  • KC Second Baseman #19
    Michael Massey went 2-for-3 and blasted a three-run homer on Friday night as the Royals clobbered the Rays 8-1 in Tampa Bay.
    The 26-year-old second baseman walloped a 390-foot (100.6 mph EV) three-run shot on the first pitch that he saw from Tyler Alexander in the fifth inning — extending the Royals’ lead to 5-1. Massey also singled in the fourth inning and scored on a fielder’s choice off the bat of Hunter Renfroe. With his two-hit attack, he’s now hitting .294/.306/.529 with six homers and 23 RBI on the season.
  • KC Shortstop #7
    Bobby Witt Jr. socked his eighth home run of the season on Friday, helping to power the Royals to a lopsided victory over the Rays.
    The 23-year-old superstar crushed his 433-foot (107.5 mph EV) solo shot off of Tyler Alexander in the seventh inning — increasing the Royals’ lead to 7-1. That would be his only hit in five at-bats on the night. He’s having another outstanding season across the board, slashing .305/.361/.557 with eight homers, 34 RBI and 16 stolen bases.
  • KC Starting Pitcher #42
    Seth Lugo delivered another dominant performance in Friday night’s victory over the Rays, surrendering just one run on four hits over seven strong frames.
    Lugo punched out three batters on the evening while issuing a pair of walks. The lone tally against him came on a fielder’s choice off the bat of Jonathan Aranda in the opening inning. After that, he was brilliant. The 34-year-old right-hander generated eight swings and misses on 104 pitches on the night, posting a CSW of 19 percent. Now 8-1 on the season, he’ll carry a stellar 1.74 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and a 61/15 K/BB ratio (72 1/3 innings) into Wednesday’s matchup against the Twins in Minnesota.
  • TB Second Baseman #8
    Brandon Lowe went 1-for-3 and scored the Rays’ lone run in Friday night’s loss to the Royals.
    Lowe smacked a one-out single off of Seth Lugo in the opening inning and wound up coming around to score on a fielder’s choice off the bat of Jonathan Aranda. He also drew a walk in the contest, reaching base safely in two of his four plate appearances. On the season, the 29-year-old slugger is now hitting .146/.239/.244 with a homer and four RBI in his first 46 plate appearances.
  • TB Starting Pitcher #14
    Tyler Alexander was obliterated in Friday night’s loss to the Royals, giving up eight runs on 11 hits over his five innings of work.
    Alexander struck out four batters on the night while issuing one free pass. He came on after Shawn Armstrong worked two scoreless frames as an opener on Friday, and it didn’t take him long to surrender the 1-0 lead that he was handed. Alexander couldn’t keep the ball in the yard, serving up a three-run homer to Michael Massey in the fifth inning and a solo blast to Bobby Witt Jr. in the seventh. He now holds an uninspiring 5.92 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and a 41/13 K/BB ratio over 52 innings on the season.
  • DET Third Baseman #33
    Colt Keith went 2-for-3 and swatted the first home run of his big league career on Friday night, propelling the Tigers to a 6-2 victory over the Blue Jays.
    The 22-year-old second baseman gave Alek Manoah a battle in the second inning, ultimately blasting a 3-2 changeup for a 400-foot (105.2 mph EV) solo shot to right center. He was also hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the fourth inning to drive in a run. He has been sizzling at the plate over the last two weeks and is now hitting .236/.297/.292 with one homer and 16 RBI on the season.
  • DET Left Fielder #30
    Kerry Carpenter clobbered his seventh home run of the season on Friday night, helping to power the Tigers to a lopsided victory over the visiting Blue Jays.
    Carpenter chased Blue Jays’ starter Alek Manoah from the ballgame with his 410-foot (106.3 mph EV) two-run blast in the fifth inning that increased the Tigers’ advantage to 6-0. He also drew a walk in the fourth inning and scored on a ground ball off the bat of Zach McKinstry. Carpenter finished the night 1-for-3 and is now hitting .277/.333/.553 with his seven long balls and 27 RBI.
