Player Notes
John Danks was crushed by the Twins on Sunday, allowing seven runs (three earned) in just 2 1/3 innings.

Advice: The Twins opened the game up with a seven-run third inning, keyed by Trevor Plouffe's grand slam. The "unearned runs" on the line came via a Danks error to load the bases just prior to the Plouffe slam, plus another Danks error later in the inning. The Twins need to have a talk with their home scorekeeper here. Earned, unearned, we're quibbling with semantics. The outing was awful. Danks now holds a 6.20 ERA and a 1.54 WHIP, with a 19/6 K/BB ratio in 24 2/3 innings. He's not a reliable starter for fantasy play at this point, but he'll at least try to rebound from this meltdown when he faces the Reds in his next outing.

John Danks struck out eight and allowed three runs over six innings in Sunday's win over the Royals.

Advice: Danks had just eight strikeouts coming into the game, but he left with the number doubled. The veteran southpaw also walked just one and allowed five hits in what was his best start of the season. Danks surrendered an RBI double to Mike Moustakas in the third and a two-run home run to Alex Gordon in the fourth, but otherwise kept the Royals quiet. He improved to 1-2 with the win. With that start in the books, he now holds a 5.64 ERA and 1.64 WHIP with a 16/6 K/BB over 22 1/3 innings. He'll try to piece together another decent performance when he faces the Twins in his next start.
