Indians' Cody Allen: Allows homer in second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen allowed two runs on three hits (one homer) while striking out two in the ninth inning of Wednesday's win over the Rangers.

In what was his third straight night of work, Allen surrendered a ninth inning home run for the second game in a row. After an Adrian Beltre homer resulted in his fourth loss of the season Tuesday, Allen conceded a home run to Elvis Andrus on Wednesday. The 28-year-old has now given up three homers in his last four contests after allowing just two round-trippers in his first 27 games. He still sports a 2.90 ERA with 44 strikeouts and 15 saves in 31 innings pitched this season, so he should continue to provide solid fantasy value.

Yankees' Didi Gregorius: Rips ninth homer Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gregorius went 1-for-5 on Wednesday, but he made it count, hitting a two-run homer and scoring twice against the White Sox.

He's now hit safely in five straight, and Gregorius is socking homers at a faster pace than he ever has before. The Yankees' everyday shortstop makes for a strong fantasy asset in most leagues thanks to his well-rounded stat line, which includes a career-best .313 batting average.

Cardinals' Jedd Gyorko: Keeps RBI streak going
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gyorko went 1-for-3 with an RBI double and a bases-loaded walk against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

He's now on a four-game RBI streak, a stretch in which Gyorko has pushed home eight runs despite collecting only four hits. The 28-year-old is in the midst of a big-time breakout campaign, but if his career-high .337 BABIP drops off, it'll take a good chunk of his fantasy value with it. While he's hitting, though, Gyorko merits wide ownership.

Rangers' Yu Darvish: Hit with loss despite quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish (6-6) allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits and one walk to take the 5-3 loss to the Indians on Wednesday. He struck out six.

Darvish was tagged for all three runs in the first three innings before settling in to notch his 12th quality start in 17 tries this season. According to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Darvish said his triceps, which tightened up during his last start, was on the back of his mind early on, but not to the point where it altered his pitches. He said he felt fine after throwing 101 pitches. The 30-year-old, who owns a 3.11 ERA and 115:37 K:BB ratio in 107 innings this season, is lined up for two starts before the All-Star break; Monday against the Red Sox and July 9 against the Angels.

Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Impresses in Arizona for eighth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wainwright (8-5) struck out eight Diamondbacks over 6.1 innings Wednesday, giving up just two runs on eight his and a walk in a 4-3 win.

He's now turned in two consecutive sharp outings, offering some hope that Wainwright may be turning the corner after a pair of blowups earlier in June. Waino is still on the margins of fantasy relevance in most formats, but he's been a bit unlucky, plus his track record makes any sign of a hot streak intriguing.
