Jordan Schafer walked and scored a run on Saturday in his return to action.

It was the only time he reached in four trips to the plate. Schafer had been out of commission for a couple days while battling a mild right MCL sprain, but it appears he'll be fine.

Kyle Blanks went 4-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Saturday's win over the A's.

Talk about making an immediate impact. This was just Blanks' third game of the season after being called up in the wake of Mitch Mooreland's elbow injury. Against the A's, the big first baseman hit almost everything thrown his way, with a home run, a double and a pair of singles. Blanks now has home runs in back-to-back games and should be seriously considered in deeper mixed leagues until Mooreland returns. With Triple-A Round Rock, he was hitting .327/.419/.635.

Josh Reddick hit a three-run homer in the seventh inning of Saturday's extra-innings loss to the Rangers.

Reddick was all over the place in this one and has been on an absolute tear as of late. His three-run homer off of Anthony Bass in the seventh inning put the cap on a six-run inning and helped the A's to a 7-3 lead, which the A's bullpen promptly threw away. Still. After the 3-for-5 night, Reddick's now working on a 10-game hitting streak and for the season, he's slashing .385/.444/.615. His oblique injury from spring training seems like a distant memory. Though with Reddick, the next injury is always potentially lurking around the corner.
May 3 - 1:25 AM

Justin Turner went 2-for-3 with a home run Saturday in the Dodgers' 6-4 defeat of the Diamondbacks.

Turner slugged a solo home run in the first inning off Diamondbacks starter Jeremy Hellickson. He also drew a walk and scored a run in the third inning and then doubled and scored in the seventh inning, finishing the game with a total of three runs. Turner is batting .300 with a .958 OPS in 18 games this season and should continue to see semi-regular playing time at third base. Juan Uribe was out of the lineup Saturday for the second straight game.
May 3 - 1:16 AM

Nick Martinez allowed five runs (two earned) over six innings in Saturday's win over the A's.

Martinez didn't factor into the decision here, as the Rangers pulled out the victory in the 10th inning. In his time on the mound, the 24-year-old right-hander struck out two without walking a batter. Martinez had allowed just one run heading into the seventh inning, but he unraveled after an Elvis Andrus fielding error and would, at one point, hit Josh Phegly with the bases loaded to force in a run. Martinez now holds a minuscule 0.84 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP, plus a 13/8 K/BB ratio. Needless to say, we don't think this is sustainable. He will attempt to continue throwing up smoke and mirrors when he takes to the road against the Rays in his next start.
May 3 - 1:12 AM

Chris Hatcher picked up his second save of the season Saturday in the Dodgers' win over the Diamondbacks.

Hatcher gave up a one-out single to Jordan Pacheco, but the game ended when Pacheco was then struck by a batted ball on his way to third base following a David Peralta single up the middle. It was the second game that ended that way on Saturday. Hatcher hasn't been great at limiting hits or runs this season, but he does have good swing-and-miss stuff and he should be the Dodgers' primary fill-in at closer until Kenley Jansen (foot) is ready.
May 3 - 1:11 AM

Scott Baker surrendered four earned runs in four frames Saturday in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks.

Los Angeles scored three runs between the seventh and eighth innings, saving Baker from the loss. He gave up seven hits, including a first-inning homer to Paul Goldschmidt and a fourth-inning homer to Aaron Hill. Baker has an ugly 5.73 ERA in 11 innings (two starts) this season for the Dodgers. He gets the Brewers on the road next.
May 3 - 1:08 AM

Jeremy Hellickson yielded three runs over 5 1/3 innings Saturday in the Diamondbacks' loss to the Dodgers.

Hellickson struck out six Los Angeles batters and walked just one, but the Dodgers tagged him for six hits -- including a Justin Turner home run and doubles from Adrian Gonzalez and Yasmani Grandal. Hellickson escaped with a no-decision, but he's 1-3 with a rough 5.20 ERA and 1.66 WHIP in 27 2/3 innings this season. The 28-year-old right-hander doesn't have much fantasy promise at this point.
