    Raleigh went 2-for-4 with a double, a two-run triple and a run in a win over the Athletics on Thursday.

    The young backstop continued to display his season-long penchant for squaring up on the ball Thursday, racking up his 18th and 19th extra-base hits of the campaign. Considering Raleigh has just 29 hits overall and still carries a .199 average, 283 on-base percentage and 30.1 percent strikeout rate, it's clear the 25-year-old is a true feast-or-famine option.

The long ball was just his second hit over his past 27 at-bats, though both of those knocks have left the yard.

    Toro drove in the first run of the game in underwhelming fashion, sacrificing a run in on a double play groundout in the first inning. His fifth-inning single then plated Jesse Winker to snap a 4-4 tie and give the Mariners a lead they wouldn't relinquish.

    Neuse's perfect night at the plate extended his hitting streak to six games, although Thursday marked his first multi-hit effort during that span. The 27-year-old's recent 12-game sabbatical in Triple-A Las Vegas, where he generated an outstanding .404/.400/.731 slash line across 55 plate appearances, seems to have done the trick for him, as he's now carrying a .324 average (11-for-34) over his first 10 games back with the Athletics.

    Machado has been nursing an injured ankle, but he returned from a nine-game absence Thursday to serve as San Diego's designated hitter against his former club. The veteran looked like he didn't miss a beat in his first at-bat, smacking a double to left field and coming around to score on a Nomar Mazara single. Things went downhill from there for Machado, however, as he struck out in each of his remaining three plate appearances. It's unclear how long he'll stick at DH before the Padres decide it's safe to put him back in the field, but Machado should be deployed in all fantasy formats as long as his bat is in the lineup.

    Phillies' Darick Hall: First career hit, homer
    14h ago

    Hall went 2-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI on Thursday against Atlanta.

    Hall was recalled to make his major-league debut Wednesday and has been in the lineup as the team's cleanup hitter in both games since. He contributed to the Phillies' offensive outburst with a leadoff home run in the fourth inning to tally both his first big-league hit and homer. He followed that up with a two-run shot off Mike Ford in the eighth frame. Hall maintained a .894 OPS across 315 plate appearances with Triple-A Lehigh Valley prior to being recalled, and he appears to have a clear path to playing time with Bryce Harper (thumb) sidelined.
