Alcides Escobar went 3-for-3 with two runs scored in Friday's win over the Twins.

Escobar was hitting .167 as recently as last Friday, but he has delivered 10 hits in his last 21 at-bats to pull his average up to .294. If he can have a little better luck in the BABIP (batting average on balls in play) department this year, it's fair to expect a rebound season. However, with his lack of patience and power, his upside is limited. His value is tied to his speed.

Josmil Pinto was 2-for-3 with a walk in Friday's loss to the Royals.

Pinto is hitting just .243 (9-for-37) so far this season, but he has three home runs and 10 walks. That gives him a healthy .404 on-base percentage and a .514 slugging percentage. The 25-year-old is getting at-bats out of the DH spot with Josh Willingham and Oswaldo Arcia on the disabled list, so he's worth considering in two-catcher mixed fantasy leagues.

Gregor Blanco went 0-for-4 on Friday and is just 2-for-20 to start the season.

The Giants decided to sacrifice defense for offense and sign Mike Morse to play over Blanco this year. It's worked out for them so far, with Morse hitting .306/.392/.510 in the early going. They'd still certainly like to see Blanco contribute more in his reserve role, though.

Adam Eaton is expected to be in the White Sox starting lineup on Saturday after leaving Friday's game early with a lower body injury.

Eaton sustained the injury while awkwardly rounding first base after his first inning single. His rest on Friday was merely a precautionary measure, and the injury isn't expected to be an issue moving forward.

James Loney went 2-for-4 with four RBI in Friday's 11-5 win over the Yankees.

Loney knocked in two runs with a double in the fourth inning and later delivered a go-ahead two-run single off Adam Warren in the bottom of the seventh inning. The 29-year-old has hit safely in four out of his last five games, including two multi-hit games, but he's still hitting just .235 on the year. If he can't hit for average, he's pretty much useless in fantasy leagues.
Apr 19 - 12:24 AM

Erik Bedard was chased after giving up four runs over 3 2/3 innings Friday against the Yankees.

Bedard was called up last week to pitch out of the bullpen, but the oblique injury to Alex Cobb pushed him into the rotation. He didn't look all that good early on Friday, giving up four runs in the second inning, but he finished fairly strong. Still, the Rays surely would have liked him to work further into the game. The veteran left-hander should stick in the rotation for now, but he's not much of a fantasy option.
Apr 19 - 12:24 AM

Hiroki Kuroda yielded three runs in 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Rays on Friday night.

Kuroda left with the lead, but the Yankees' bullpen imploded in the late innings. The veteran right-hander gave up seven hits and two walks and struck out two batters. Kuroda hasn't completed seven innings yet this season, but has yet to throw a true clunker either. He'll carry a 4.07 ERA into a start against the Red Sox in Boston next week.

Wil Myers - OF - Rays

Wil Myers went 3-for-5 with three RBI on Friday against the Yankees.

Myers had a pair of RBI singles in the victory. The 23-year-old outfielder went without an RBI in 10 straight games coming into Friday's action, so this was nice to see. Hopefully the power will come soon.
