Mark Teixeira fanned all four times he was up Wednesday in the loss to the Red Sox.

It's his seventh career four-strikeout game, but the first of those in which he struck out every single time up. We're just not very optimistic about Teixeira's chances of becoming a quality fantasy first baseman this year as he deals with the aftermath of last year's wrist surgery.

Billy Hamilton went 2-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored as the Reds defeated the Pirates on Wednesday.

The Reds attempted five stolen bases against Pirates pitcher Charlie Morton and catcher Chris Stewart, but Hamilton was shockingly not part of the attack. Hamilton has now hit safely in seven out of his last eight games as he attempts to put his early-season struggles behind him.
Apr 23 - 10:58 PM

Derek Jeter lost his 11-game hitting streak with an 0-for-4 against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Jeter had raised his average from .182 to .298 during the stretch. Unfortunately, he's been a zero elsewhere for fantasy purposes; he's yet to homer or steal a base and he has just four runs scored and four RBI despite hitting from the second spot in the Yankees lineup.
Apr 23 - 10:57 PM

Adam LaRoche went 3-for-5 and sent the Nationals to a 5-4 victory over the Angels on Wednesday with a walk-off RBI single.

LaRoche has hit safely in seven games and has been an on-base machine all season long, now with a .419 mark. The 34-year-old is not normally thought of as an offensive threat at his position, particularly after last year's lukewarm performance, but has been a big part of the Nationals' offense throughout April.

Jay Bruce - OF - Reds

Jay Bruce went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI, and a run scored as the Reds defeated the Pirates on Wednesday. More impressively, he stole two bases in the effort as well.

Bruce is not known around the baseball world for being fleet of foot, but his two swipes on Wednesday gives him three on the season in as many attempts. His season-high is nine, achieved in 2012. Bruce continues to be one of baseball's most consistent hitters, as his current .250/.368/.472 slash line is right in line with his marks since coming into the league.

Nationals manager Matt Williams said Gio Gonzalez was removed from Wednesday's game with some shoulder tightness.

It explains why Gonzalez was removed after allowing just one run through two batters in the sixth inning. Williams said he doesn't consider it to be a big deal, with Gio saying he expects to make his next start. Still, anytime a shoulder is involved it's worth monitoring the situation.

Ernesto Frieri blew his second save of the season, allowing four runs as the Nationals walked off winners in the bottom of the ninth.

Frieri, who saved 37 games for the Angels last season, has not been able to get the job done in the early going. Against the Nationals, he allowed a home run to Jose Lobaton to lead off the ninth, then got a strike out. From there, he allowed a single, a walk, a two-run double, and a walk-off RBI single to Adam LaRoche. On the season, Frieri has struck out 12 in 9 1/3 innings, but has also allowed five home runs. One has to wonder if he may be running out of time to right the ship.
Apr 23 - 10:44 PM

Gio Gonzalez allowed two runs over five innings in Wednesday's start against the Angels, but was given a no-decision.

Gonzalez allowed four hits, walked three, and struck out five. Despite having thrown 83 pitches, manager Matt Williams was quick with the hook after Gonzalez walked Mike Trout and allowed a double to Albert Pujols to start the sixth inning. Gonzalez now has a 3.00 ERA with the same great peripherals we have come to expect over the last two seasons. He gets a good match-up in his next start, as he'll face the lowly Astros.
