Chris Rusin baffled the Diamondbacks in Saturday's victory, tossing five scoreless innings on just one hit, while striking out six.

Rusin was lifted after five innings, as it was only his first start of the year and he’s not yet stretched out, but he was very good in a difficult ballpark. The lefty had a 77.8 percent ground-ball rate and struck out more than a batter per inning. Yeah, he walked three, but getting out of Arizona with only one hit allowed is a job well done -- especially when the other option was trotting Jordan Lyles out for another start. Rusin still isn’t worth picking up in fantasy leagues, even with the strong showing. He has a 1.69 ERA in 16 innings and will face the Giants on the road, if he continues to get the ball every fifth day.

Mitch Moreland capped off a six-run third inning with a three-run blast in Saturday's 7-2 victory over the Angels.

Moreland got a 90-mph cookie up in the zone from Matt Shoemaker, who had absolutely nothing left in the tank by the time the Rangers' first baseman stepped into the box. He's now hitting .257/.313/.459 with three homers and 11 RBI in 80 plate appearances. That's almost identical to his career numbers, too, so don't expect too much more from the 30-year-old slugger this year.

According to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the possibility of the Brewers trading Ryan Braun is becoming "more realistic."

If the Brewers want to sell high, now would be the time to do it. Braun has gotten off to a great start, hitting .333 with five homers and 18 RBI over his first 22 games. The Brewers are sitting at 8-15 right now and things probably aren't going to get much better as the season wears on. Braun still has four years left on his contract so there's no immediate incentive to move him, though trading him to acquire prospects wouldn't be a bad move as Milwaukee looks to rebuild. The 32-year-old has the power to veto a trade to any team except the Angels, Dodgers, Marlins, Nationals and Rays.

Albert Pujols went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's blowout loss to the Rangers.

It's strange to see an elite hitter like Pujols toil below the Mendoza Line, but at least the power has continued to show up. He has four homers in his last six games and is hitting 7-for-24 (.292) over that same stretch. The 36-year-old is no longer a perennial .300 hitter; however, he's far better than he has been thus far in 2016. Only Kyle Seager entered Saturday's slate of games with a lower BABIP than Pujols' .143 BABIP through his first 24 games.

Rougned Odor tripled three times and scored twice in Saturday's win over the Angels.

Odor stood atop the order for the Rangers again, which is a good sign, and set the table nicely with a three-pack of doubles. Greedy fantasy owners likely said that it would've been nice to see him knock in a few runs. That's perhaps the only downfall of his new home in the lead-off role. He's hitting .264/.312/.448 with three homers and four stolen bases. The 22-year-old has been a top-10 fantasy second baseman this month and has the potential to be much more than that.

Derek Holland scattered four hits in six scoreless innings on Saturday against the Angels, picking up his third win of the year.

It’s been a balancing act all year for the lefty. He tossed six scoreless and walked no one, yet only struck out one and gave up a ton of fly balls. That maps onto his 2.48 ERA and 5.59 K/9 this year, and he’s really benefiting from a .227 BABIP, which is almost 70-points lower than his career average. In other words, Holland was good in Saturday’s win and he’s only allowed five earned runs in his last 24 innings, but everything about his profile screams heavy regression. He’ll try to continue to outrun that statistical inevitability in a tough road matchup against the Blue Jays in his next scheduled start.

The Reds will promote Tim Adleman from Triple-A Louisville ahead of Sunday's game against the Pirates.

He'll be making his major league debut in place of Raisel Iglesias, who is out with a shoulder injury. Adleman was scratched from Saturday's start in preparation for Sunday. The 28-year-old is 2-0 this year with a 4.24 ERA in three starts for Louisville.

Matt Shoemaker experienced The Bad Start on Saturday against the Rangers, getting torched for seven runs on a whopping nine hits in just 2 1/3 innings.

Shoemaker gave up hits to seven of the eight batters he faced in the bottom of the third inning, finally getting replaced after Mitch Moreland launched a three-run shot to right field and the red-hot Elvis Andrus immediately followed with a double. The 29-year-old picked up his fourth loss of the young season, and the fantasy darling that posted a 3.04 ERA in 2014 now feels like a completely different person. He owns a 9.15 ERA in 20 2/3 innings, while his walk rate now sits at 4.35 BB/9. It’s ugly all around. Should he get another start, Shoemaker will face off against the Rays at home next Friday.
