With Huston Street getting the day off, Joaquin Benoit pitched a perfect ninth for his first save Saturday against the Giants.
Benoit allowed two runs in his second appearance of the year, but he's given up just one hit over six scoreless innings in his other six outings. He should be one of baseball's top setup men for fantasy purposes this year.
Dropped to the sixth spot in the lineup, Jedd Gyorko went 0-for-3 with a strikeout Saturday against the Giants.
Gyorko opened the season batting third and fourth, but he's hitting just .148 in 18 games, necessitating the drop. He's 2-for-18 since landing his five-year, $35 million deal on April 14.
Hunter Pence went 0-for-4 on Saturday to drop his average to .188.
Pence has swiped four bases in the early going, but he has just one homer and three RBI in 69 at-bats. He's part of the reason the Giants have lost their last three games by a combined score of 7-3.
Jose Quintana was shelled for five runs in five innings Saturday as the White Sox fell to the Rangers.
Quintana was excellent last Sunday against the Indians but looked like a completely different pitcher Saturday night in Arlington, Texas. The Rangers got to him for nine hits -- including a homer and three doubles -- and gave him his first loss of the season. He will try to bounce back next week in Detroit.
Dan Haren moved to 3-0 after allowing five runs -- two earned -- in 7 1/3 innings against the Diamondbacks on Saturday.
Haren gave up three unearned runs (four total) after a Hanley Ramirez error in the third. The last run came after Brian Wilson replaced him with a man on first and one out in the eighth; he subsequently gave up a two-run double before escaping the inning. Haren didn't look too good towards the end of the spring, but he has a 2.08 ERA and a 20/2 K/BB ratio in 25 innings now. That he's faced the Padres and the reeling Diamondbacks twice has certainly helped.
Mike Bolsinger was tagged for seven runs -- six earned -- in four innings by the Dodgers in his major league debut Saturday.
Bolsinger lacks major league-quality stuff, and he was only called up because the Diamondbacks are both panicking and too thrifty to go to Archie Bradley just yet. With the team still in a tailspin, it'd be no surprise to see Bolsinger jettisoned right away, with Trevor Cahill rejoining the rotation.
Craig Kimbrel gave up two earned runs and recorded only two outs Saturday against the Mets.
It was Kimbrel's first outing in a week -- he was dealing with mild shoulder soreness -- and he had to be pulled with one out to go in the bottom of the ninth. Jordan Walden entered to pick up the one-out save. For what it's worth, Kimbrel told reporters after the game that his shoulder felt fine and that he wanted to stay in the game.
Andre Ethier hit a three-run homer off Mike Bolsinger in the win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.
Ethier is hitting just .214 in 56 at-bats, but he's driven in 13 runs anyway. That he's sitting against lefties makes him a mediocre play in mixed leagues right now, but he should have more value as the year goes on.
