Description: Twins starter Andrew Albers blanked the Blue Jays on four hits with zero walks in seven innings Sunday.
Insight: The 27-year-old rookie started off his major league career with 17 1/3 six-hit scoreless frames but gave up 32 hits and 17 earned runs in his last 21 1/3 prior to Sunday. He's a risky streaming option.

Description: Twins starter Andrew Albers allowed nine hits and five earned runs over 1 2/3 innings Monday at Houston.
Insight: Albers still has a 3.96 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP in 38 2/3 innings, but if you can't trust him against Houston, you can't trust him against anyone.

Description: Minnesota rookie Andrew Albers allowed three runs (two earned) over seven innings Wednesday against the Royals.
Insight: After throwing 17 1/3 scoreless innings in his first two big league starts, Albers gave up 10 earned runs over 12 2/3 innings prior to Wednesday's start. The 27-year-old only has 13 K in 37 innings, so he isn't a fantasy option outside AL-only leagues.

Description: Minnesota rookie Andrew Albers was phenomenal Monday in a shutout win over Cleveland.
Insight: Albers is 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA in his first two big league starts, allowing just six hits in 17 1/3 innings. At this rate, he might throw a perfect game in his next outing. Fantasy owners should definitely consider picking the lefthander up if he's still available.

Description: Twins pitcher Andrew Albers nearly completed a shutout in his major league debut Tuesday against the red hot Royals.
Insight: Albers gave up four hits, struck out two and walked one over 8 1/3 scoreless innings. The 27-year-old had a 2.86 ERA and a 116/32 K/BB in 132 1/3 innings with Triple-A Rochester this season and has recorded a 2.64 ERA in 395 2/3 minor league innings. The Canadian left-hander doesn't have much fantasy upside, however.
