News: Porcello allowed five runs on 10 hits and no walks Friday with five strikeouts in 6.1 innings to earn his first loss of the season. Impact: After falling behind 2-0 in the first inning, Porcello and the Tigers were never able to regain momentum, eventually falling 6-0 to the Padres. If anything positive can come from this start, it's that Porcello's control was on point, as he threw 66 of his 91 pitches for strikes. Porcello (1-1) will look to keep the hits down next time out against Cleveland.(RotoWire, )

News: Porcello got the win in his first start of the season, as he held the Orioles to just one run over 6.2 innings. Impact: Porcello struck out just three batters, but that comes with the territory, and owners should be happy to get a boost in the other categories. The right-hander allowed just three hits and two walks, while getting 12 of his 16 fielded outs on the ground. He'll look to build on the strong 2014 debut either Friday or Saturday against the Padres.(RotoWire, )
