Moved up to the leadoff spot, Brian Dozier went 2-for-5 with a double, a walk, a steal and two runs scored in the Twins' 8-5 victory over the Mariners on Saturday.

That's more like it. Dozier obviously belongs at or very near the top of the Twins lineup, not in the cleanup spot that he had occupied recently. He raised his average to .215 tonight, and the steal was his first of the year.

James Paxton yielded four runs -- one earned -- in 4 2/3 innings Saturday against the Twins.

Paxton struck out seven. His velocity, while still down some from last year, was slightly better than it's been previously this season. He's not nearly out of the woods yet, but his fortunes seem a little better tonight than they did six days ago, when he got lit up by the hapless Rangers.
Apr 26 - 1:01 AM

While the rest of the Twins were combining for eight runs, Kennys Vargas went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts Saturday against the Mariners.

The Twins would certainly prefer that Vargas start hitting, but they could really improve their outfield defense by sending Vargas to Triple-A and installing Oswaldo Arcia as their DH. It's something they'll have to weigh if Vargas doesn't figure it out over the next week or two.

Austin Jackson went 2-for-5 and hit his second homer Saturday against the Twins.

Jackson was homerless in his first 65 games in Seattle before hitting two in the last six. We still harbor serious doubts that he'll prove to be a quality leadoff man for the Mariners this year, but at least things are looking up from last year's dreadful results.
Apr 26 - 12:56 AM

C.J. Wilson pitched 5 2/3 innings of one-run ball in the Angels' 4-1 victory over the Rangers on Saturday.

Unfortunately, Wilson needed one more out in order put himself in position for the victory; the Angels were down 1-0 when he left, but then scored three times in the bottom of the sixth. Wilson has pitched well in three of his four starts, albeit not against the toughest of competition. We want to see more strikeouts before we consider recommending him in mixed leagues.
Apr 26 - 12:50 AM

Making his first start since being called up Friday, Grant Green went 2-for-3 with two runs scored Saturday against the Rangers.

The Angels were pretty much grooming Green as an outfielder this spring, but he played second tonight. Even in Triple-A, he had played there just once this year. Second base is certainly where his bat plays best and probably the only position at which he has a chance of becoming a regular. The Angels, though, probably won't keep him up for long.
Apr 26 - 12:48 AM

Elvis Andrus finished 2-for-4 with a stolen base Saturday against the Angels.

Andrus has reached base in five straight, a major accomplishment for a Rangers hitter this year. Unfortunately, he's still batting just .208 overall. Worse, he's drawn one walk in 73 at-bats, an unusual problem for the light-hitting shortstop; if nothing else, he's usually managed a decent walk rate for a guy with so little power.
Apr 26 - 12:46 AM

Filling in for Yasiel Puig, Andre Ethier went 3-for-4 with a homer, a double and a walk to lead the Dodgers to an 11-8 win over the Padres on Friday.

Ethier was making his first start in six days, but the lack of activity hasn't hurt him so far; he's hit .353 with a couple of homers in 34 at-bats. He'll probably have some value in mixed leagues if Puig lands on the disabled list because of his hamstring.
