Player Notes
Jeff Samardzija held the Twins to two runs and three hits over eight innings in a victory Friday.

Advice: Samardzija fanned nine, besting his previous season high in strikeouts by two. He's now 4-2 with a 4.28 ERA and a 49/12 K/BB ratio in 51 innings for the season. If he keeps striking out four batters for each one he walks (hardly an impossibility, considering he was at nearly 5:1 last season), his ERA should continue to drop.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Astros recently scouted White Sox right-hander Jeff Samardzija.

Advice: It might not mean much, as Rosenthal writes that they are "examining a long list of potentially available starting pitchers," so it was likely just a matter of due diligence. However, the White Sox could make Samardzija if they continue to struggle. The 30-year-old is due to become a free agent this winter.

Jeff Samardzija pitched eight innings of three-run ball against the A's on Sunday.

Advice: Facing off against his former team, Samardzija pitched a nice, if unspectacular, game. He struck out five, walked three and served up eight hits. All three runs against the right-hander came in the fourth and fifth innings. Max Muncy burned him for a two-run homer and an inning later Billy Butler had an RBI ground out. Samardzija has pitched unevenly to this point, with a 4.58 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 40/11 K/BB ratio across 53 innings. Sunday's start seems like it could be a step in the right direction, and he'll try to build off of it in next weekend's home series against the Twins.
