Gleyber Torres has been pounding the ball practically since his arrival to the bigs on April 22. But all this month, he's gone on a power-hitting tear that puts him among the best in baseball. Each of Torres' eight homers have come since May 4. That's the second-best homer production in the majors in that span behind J.D. Martinez's nine.

Not surprisingly considering the time of year, Theo Epstein said today there have been "zero trade talks" between the Cubs and other teams. Any report to the contrary is false, according to Epstein.

So since Dylan Bundy's disastrous May 8 start against the Royals, he has a 2.86 ERA, 0.73 WHIP and 29 K's in three starts, and his fastball has averaged 1.4 mph more than it did in that game. A podcast whiff on my part, but I guess it was a mechanical issue after all.

Shohei Ohtani went 2-for-3 with 2 doubles and 2 walks in the Angels' 8-1 win on Thursday. It was his first career game with multiple doubles or multiple walks. The Angels are 11-2 this season when Ohtani reaches base multiple times in a game.

Jared Hughes gets the Reds' first save since Raisel Iglesias' DL placement. That's nine straight scoreless outings for Hughes, whose ERA is now 1.23. While it's possible Hughes will be unavailable Friday after working three in a row (albeit on 28 total pitches), and Iglesias shouldn't be out long, Hughes is a worthwhile short term add for you saves chasers.

He's not yet Josh Hader's equal in terms of strikeouts and volume of relief innings, but Amir Garrett is sure making his case. With today's 1 1/3 perfect innings and 3 K's, Garrett has 12 K's, a 1.29 ERA and three appearances of four-plus outs in his past five games. There are very few fantasy formats out there where he can't make a noticeable impact.

Edwin Diaz on pace for 84 innings and 152 strikeouts. He's pitched on back-to-back days eight times (including three straight once). It's a heavy workload; we'll see if he can keep it going.

The Mariners pull out another one-run victory, a 1-0 win over the A's with the only run scoring on an error. Marco Gonzales tossed seven scoreless innings as he continues to look like the second-best starter on the team and Edwin Diaz struck out the side on 13 pitches for the save. That's 45 K's in 25.1 innings for Diaz as the M's climb 10 games over .500.

Kenley Jansen wasn't right in April, but he looks right now as he closes out the Dodgers' 3-0 win for his ninth straight scoreless outing. His velocity is back up, the ERA is back under 3.00 and the Dodgers can feel secure about the ninth inning.

Shohei Ohtani's 2-run single in the 9th inning was his first game-tying hit in the 7th inning or later

Andrew Miller escapes a first-and-third, no-out jam to keep the Indians up 1-0. The curious play in there was an attempted safety squeeze with NL RBI leader Javier Baez at the plate and no outs, but he bunted right back to Miller and Anthony Rizzo was toast at home plate.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Anthony Rizzo breaks up Adam Plutko's no-hit bid with a leadoff double in the seventh, and with a slim 1-0 lead, the question now is: How long does he stay in the game? Andrew Miller is getting loose for the Indians.

The Nationals' 3-1 loss to the Padres means they finish their homestand with a 2-4 record. Despite a 15-6 record since April 29th (best in the NL), the Nats are still under .500 at home. They're one of three teams that have a winning record on the season, but a losing record at home. The Angels and Rockies are the others.

Including Erick Fedde's outing againt the Padres today (5.2 IP, 1 ER), Nationals starters have now gone 23 consecutive games allowing three earned runs or less. That's the longest streak since the Cubs went 23 straight in May/June of 2016.

Bryce Harper taketh away, Bryce Harper giveth. After making a fancy diving grab to end the fifth, Harper bobbled a would-be inning-ending fly ball near the right field wall in the sixth. The two-base error allowed a pair of runs to score. Harper entered today tied for last in the National League with minus-6 runs saved.

After some early season struggles in the role, Ian Happ returns to the lead off spot tonight for the Cubs. Happ has been as hot as anyone on the team, showing extraordinary patience at the plate as of late. Kyle Schwarber bats second with Bryant and Rizzo behind them.
