Yohan Pino picks up first career win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:27 am ET) Twins pitcher Yohan Pino picked up his first career win Thursday night against the Mariners in Seattle. The right-hander yielded only one run on seven hits and two walks while striking out four over five innings of a 4-2 victory.

Pino owns a 4.39 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP over five starts. He also owns a 19:7 K:BB ratio over 26 2/3 innings of work. It remains to be seen when he'll make his next start after the All-Star break.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie was obliterated by the Tigers Thursday night, dropping to 5-8 on the year. The right-hander was charged with eight runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out two over four innings of a 16-4 defeat.

Over his last two starts covering eight innings, Guthrie has allowed 14 earned runs. He owns a 4.56 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP over 19 starts (120 1/3 innings). His next start will come after the All-Star break.

Drew Smyly picks up win No. 5 before the break


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Tigers pitcher Drew Smyly (5-8) was not at his best but came away with the win Thursday night against the Royals in Kansas City. The right-hander permitted four runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out two over 6 2/3 innings of a 16-4 victory.

Smyly has allowed four-plus runs in each of his last three starts. He owns a 4.00 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP over 87 2/3 innings of work. His next start will come after the All-Star break.

Colby Lewis has disaster start Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis was destroyed by the Angels Thursday.

Lewis lasted just 2 1/3 innings. He gave up 13 runs, 11 of which were earned. He did not issue any walks, but did manage to strike out a batter. Despite the high run total, Lewis gave up just one home run during the outing. 

Lewis started off the game by giving up four straight hits. While the next two batters made out, both managed to pick up RBIs. Lewis allowed four runs after one inning of work. The second was even worse. Lewis again gave up four straight hits to open the frame. After a sacrifice fly, Lewis allowed two more hits. Howie Kendrick then grounded into a double-play, which also brought home a run. Lewis gave up six runs during the inning, though two were unearned. 

The third inning wound up being his last. After allowing two straight singles, Lewis gave up a three-run homer to Mike Trout. The hit would chase Lewis from the game. The loss drops him to 6-6 on the year. 


Hector Santiago wins his first game Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Angels pitcher Hector Santiago struck out eight against the Rangers Thursday.

Santiago gave up four runs, three earned, on five hits over six innings. Santiago displayed strong control, giving up one walk against eight strikeouts. He threw 101 pitches during the outing. 

Santiago found himself in trouble early, as he gave up a two-run double in the first inning. He settled in until the fourth, when an error led to an unearned run being scored. Santiago gave up his final run in the sixth on a solo shot by Adrian Beltre.

The win moved Santiago to 1-7 on the year. His next start should come shortly after the All-Star break.


T.J. House settles for no-decision vs. Yankees


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Indians pitcher T.J. House wasn't a factor into the decision Thursday night at home against the Yankees. The left-hander permitted three runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out five over 4 2/3 innings of a 9-3 victory.

Over his last four starts covering 22 2/3 innings, House has allowed nine earned runs. He owns a 4.40 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP over 45 innings of work this season. The Indians have not mapped out their pitching plans after the All-Star break, so House's next start remains to be seen.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Over his last three starts covering 18 2/3 innings, Phelps has allowed five earned runs. He owns a 3.94 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP over 89 innings of work. The Yankees have yet to map out their pitching plans for after the All-Star break.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Over his last two starts covering 11 2/3 innings, Chen has allowed five earned runs. He owns a 4.15 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP over 18 starts (104 innings). The date for his next start after the All-Star break remains uncertain.

Derek Holland hasn't been informed when he'll begin a rehab assignment


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Rangers starting pitcher Derek Holland (knee) has not been informed when he'll begin a minor-league rehab assignment, MLB.com reports.

"I haven't heard anything, but the only thing I don't want happen is I'm out there for just two innings and 35 pitches," Holland said. "That better not happen. I have been throwing 80-pitch bullpens."

Masahiro Tanaka to miss at least six weeks with partially torn UCL


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) After visiting three different doctors, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told reporters that pitcher Masahiro Tanaka has been diagnosed with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his throwing arm, the New York Daily News reports.

Tanaka is expected to receive a PRP injection Monday and has been recommended throwing program. Although Tommy John surgery has not been ruled out, Cashman expects Tanaka to be back in six weeks, if the rehab program is effective.

"That's our hope. Obviously timeframes are subject to change," Cashman said.

What to do with Masahiro Tanaka?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/10/2014) If you own Masahiro Tanaka in Fantasy, your best bet is to hang on to him for now. If you try to trade him with all the uncertainty surrounding his elbow, you might get only pennies on the dollar.

Pennies don't win championships. A crumpled dollar might.

I've downgraded Tanaka in my rankings because, like everyone else, I'm scared. We've seen enough season-ending elbow injuries this year to know how suddenly they pop up, and the lack of information on Tanaka's so far is unsettling. But a panic move is never advised. To trade one of the most valuable players in Fantasy knowing he could end up missing just 2-4 weeks (or whatever), you'd still need something awfully good in return.

Tanaka now ranks 14th for me, meaning I'd still need a true ace to part with him. Cole Hamels is the last of what I'd consider the "true aces," coming in at 13th.

Obviously, that's subject to change as the situation develops, but if you can get one of my top 13 starting pitchers for Tanaka, you might want to unload the worry on someone else.


Jon Lester Ks 12 in no-decision vs. White Sox


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester was unable to factor into the decision Thursday afternoon against the White Sox. The right-hander yielded one run on seven hits and no walks while striking out 12 over seven innings of work.

Over his last three starts covering 23 innings, Lester has allowed only one earned run. He owns a 2.65 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP over 19 starts (129 innings). It remains to be seen when he'll make his next start after the All-Star break.

Jose Quintana stays sharp in no-decision vs. Boston


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) White Sox pitcher Jose Quintana turned in a quality start but was forced to settle for a no-decision in his final start before the All-Star break Thursday afternoon against the Red Sox in Boston.

Quintana tossed seven innings and allowed only three earned runs on two hits, with two walks and seven strikeouts. Of his 111 pitches, 71 were strikes. Over his last three starts covering 21 2/3 innings, Quintana has allowed only three earned runs.

Quintana owns a 3.24 ERA, a 1.20 WHIP and 107:34 K:BB ratio over 19 starts (119 1/3 innings). It remains to be seen when the left-hander will make his next start after the break.
