Red Sox's Steven Wright: No innings limit this season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(10:08 pm ET) Though Wright has never pitched more than 148.1 innings in a season, the Red Sox have no limitations set on how much they'll use him this season, the Boston Globe reports.

Because of Wright's knuckleball style and age (31), the Red Sox are less worried about the potential pratfalls of a big innings jump than they would other pitchers.


Pirates' Juan Nicasio: Back to the bullpen?
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(10:04 pm ET) Nicasio appears to be the odd man out of the rotation, if and when the Pirates promote one of their pitching prospects following the Super 2 arbitration date.

The righty holds a 6.75 ERA in May and has been outpitched by Jon Niese and Jeff Locke, both of whom were thought to be on the rotation bubble at one time or another. Nicasio registered a 3.86 ERA in 2015 as a reliever and Pittsburgh could use additional bullpen help. His fastball, which averaged 95.1 mph out of the pen last year, has dropped to 93.3 mph.


Royals' Edinson Volquez: Get no-decision despite quality start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(10:02 pm ET) Volquez (5-4) gave up three runs on seven hits and a walk over six innings Sunday, striking out five, but came away with a no-decision in a 5-4 win over the White Sox.

As per usual, Volquez kept the ball on the ground, generating double-digit groundballs for the fourth straight start and ninth time in 11 outings this season. He was in line to take the loss Sunday, getting outdueled by Chris Sale, but the Royals were able to stage another late-inning rally to get him off the hook. Volquez will next take to the mound Friday in Cleveland.


Yankees' Nathan Eovaldi: Wins despite one hit of support
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9:18 pm ET) Eovaldi improved to 6-2 with a win over the Rays on Sunday, allowing one run on six hits and two walks, striking out seven.

Eovaldi improved his ratios to a 3.71 ERA and 1.17 WHIP. Meanwhile his opposing number Jake Odorizzi allowed just one hit, but it was a two-run homer by Starlin Castro, enough to get Eovaldi the win.


White Sox's Chris Sale: No-decision despite strong outing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(8:32 pm ET) Sale (9-1) tossed seven innings Sunday, allowing two runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out seven, but came away with a no-decision in a 5-4 loss to the Royals.

He was in line to become the majors' first 10-game winner this season before the White Sox bullpen once again fell apart. It was still Sale's ninth quality start in 11 trips to the mound and fourth in his last five outings, and he's struck out at least six batters in seven straight starts and 10 of 11 this season. He'll take another shot at win No. 10 in Detroit on Saturday.


Astros' Doug Fister: Registers quality start in no-decision Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(8:02 pm ET) Fister threw six innings Sunday against the Angels, but he didn't factor into the decision. He allowed three runs (one earned) on five hits and four walks while fanning six.

Fister has registered quality starts in seven of the past eight games, and even though he walked four - his highest total since April 25 - he kept the team in the game. The six strikeouts tied a season-high mark for him, and he will look to keep it going in his next start against Oakland next Friday.


Angels' Nick Tropeano: Walks five in no-decision Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7:54 pm ET) Tropeano tossed five innings Sunday against the Astros, but he didn't factor in the decision. He allowed four runs on seven hits and five walks while fanning five.

Tropeano was hit hard all game long, and to make matters even worse he has problems to find the strike zone as the five walks tied a season-high mark for him. Sunday's outing cut a streak of four games allowing three or less earned runs, and the 25-year-old will try to bounce back in his next start against the Pirates on Saturday.


Rays' Jake Odorizzi: Loses despite throwing one-hitter
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7:38 pm ET) Odorizzi allowed just one hit Sunday against the Yankees over seven innings, but it was a two-run homer by Starlin Castro that provided the margin of defeat.

Odorizzi retired the first 16 batters he faced before one batter reached on an error. He allowed just the one hit and one walk, while striking out six.


Cubs' John Lackey: Strong effort in Sunday's win over Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7:14 pm ET) Lackey (5-2) tossed seven innings Sunday, allowing one run on four hits and four walks while striking out six in a win over the Phillies.

The only run came on a solo shot by Tyler Goeddel. Lackey enjoyed a strong May, reeling off six quality starts in six trips to the mound with a 2.09 ERA and 40:11 K:BB in 43 innings, and he'll look to continue his run of success Friday at home against the Diamondbacks.


Phillies' Vince Velasquez: Hit hard in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7:00 pm ET) Velasquez (5-2) allowed seven runs on nine hits, including two home runs, and two walks over just 4.2 innings in Sunday's loss to the Cubs. He struck out six.

That's now two starts in a row where Velasquez hasn't been able to complete five innings, and he's served up five homers over that span. His upside is still tremendous, but the 23-year-old will need to sharpen his command within the strike zone to add some consistency to his arsenal. He'll next take the hill Friday at home against the Brewers.
