Description: Cubs starter Jason Hammel allowed four runs Sunday versus Arizona.

He dominated at Double-A (3-1, 0.62 ERA, 0.897 WHIP, 43 Ks in 29 IP), but we aren't sure if he's ready to help your fantasy roster. We will know more if he gets another start because he'd be tested by the strong Tigers lineup in a weekend start.

Jeff Samardzija, SP, CWS5/17/2015 7:07:00 PM
Description: White Sox right-hander Jeff Samardzija didn't pitch great, but he was good enough to earn his third win of the season.

Insight: Paxton didn't strike out many, just two, but he also walked just two. The lefty evens his record at 2-2 while lowering his ERA to 3.59. We are expecting a lot more from the hard-throwing left-hander.

Description: Yankees starter Chris Capuano wasn't very good in his first outing, going just three innings and yielding four runs.
