Athletics' Eric Surkamp: Struggles through another outing Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(1:28 am ET) Surkamp has another poor outing on Friday night allowing five hits, four runs (only two earned) and two walks over only 3.2 innings.

The outing actually lowered Surkamp's ERA under 7.00 for the season to go along with his brutal 1.97 WHIP. Surkamp has managed to make nine starts for the A's due to the extreme number of injuries in the rotation, but has done to make the A's want to keep him in the role and should be the first starter pushed out of the rotation when Sean Manaea and/or Rich Hill return.

Red Sox's David Price: Lasts 2.1 innings Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/24/2016) Price allowed six runs on 12 hits while striking out one over 2.1 innings, but received no decision Friday at the Rangers.

Price gave up runs in each of the three innings he took the mound, leaving the game with a 6-0 deficit, but the offense came all the way back to take him off the hook for a potential loss. His rough outing broke a string of eight straight quality starts, and his ERA moved up to 4.68. He'll make his next start Wednesday at the Rays.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Strikes out eight in no decision Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/24/2016) Rodon allowed two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out eight over 5.2 innings, but received no decision Friday against the Blue Jays.

Rodon had a 2-1 lead before giving up a run in the sixth inning to keep him from a potential victory. He now has held opponents to two or fewer earned runs in six of his last seven starts to lower his ERA to 4.09. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Twins.

Blue Jays' Aaron Sanchez: Registers quality start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/24/2016) Sanchez allowed two runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out four over six innings, but received no decision Friday at the White Sox.

Sanchez posted a quality start, but the Blue Jays were unable to get him much run support in a game they'd go on to lose. He's now held opponents to two or fewer earned runs in four of his last five starts, and he has a 3.33 ERA on the year. He'll make his next start Wednesday at the Rockies.

Mariners' Adrian Sampson: Lands on DL with flexor strain
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/24/2016) Sampson (elbow) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday with a "right flexor bundle strain."

Sampson was scratched from his start Thursday after appearing to tweak something in his arm during his warmup session. After further testing, the Mariners determined that Sampson had suffered a flexor strain. He'll be out for a minimum of 15 days, but given that forearm injuries can be particularly worrisome for pitchers, the Mariners will likely be patient with his rehab timeline.

Mariners' Wade LeBlanc: Confirmed as Friday's starter
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/24/2016) LeBlanc has been officially confirmed as the starter for Friday's game against the Cardinals, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

LeBlanc joins the Mariners for a start Friday, taking the roster spot of the injured Adrian Sampson (elbow). The 31-year-old left-hander will have the unenviable task of making his first major league start of the year against an explosive Cardinals offense. LeBlanc did have success at Triple-A Buffalo while in the Blue Jays' organization earlier this season, notching a 1.71 ERA over 14 starts.

Angels' Nick Tropeano: Activated, optioned Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/24/2016) Tropeano (shoulder) was activated from the DL and optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

This doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense as it wasn't like the Angels had to activate Tropeano -- he just made his first rehab start Thursday, allowing three runs over five innings with High-A Inland Empire. Apparently, Tropeano was not happy about the decision, but chances are the right-hander will be back in the major league rotation once he's proven he's back to full strength. The 25-year-old posted a 3.25 ERA in his first 10 starts, although the peripherals suggest he's overachieved (4.62 FIP).

Tigers' Michael Fulmer: To start during weekend series against Rays
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/24/2016) Fulmer will pitch during next weekend's series against Tampa Bay, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

The young righty exited his most recent start Thursday with dizziness brought on by dehydration, but he'll be back in the rotation next weekend with a bit of added rest working in his favor. The Tigers have not specified which of the four games against the Rays that Fulmer will start, but Sunday's game on July 3 looks to be the likely date.

Angels' C.J. Wilson: No reported progress toward return
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/24/2016) Wilson (shoulder) has not pitched in a game since a May 25 rehab appearance at Inland Empire.

He was scheduled to throw a bullpen session two weeks ago, but the Angels have provided nothing in the way of updates regarding Wilson's progress in the time since that scheduled session. It's reasonable to think that he will need four or five rehab starts if and when he's healthy enough to pitch again this season, making it unlikely that he will be activated before the All-Star break.

Mariners' Wade Miley: On track to rejoin Mariners on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/24/2016) Miley (shoulder) is on track to rejoin the Mariners' rotation next Wednesday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN reports.

Miley is set to make a rehab start with short-season Everett on Friday, and it appears that will be the only minor league appearance he will make barring any setbacks during Friday's outing. If everything goes as planned, Miley will face off against the Pirates at Safeco Field in his first start after coming off the disabled list.
