A.J. Pollock went 4-for-5 with a double, a walk and a steal versus the Giants on Friday.

Pollock has picked a good time to get hot. He's the Diamondbacks' best outfielder, but he was still vulnerable to losing playing time because of Ender Inciarte's hot start. Pollock, who homered Thursday, is now batting .333 with five walks, six RBI and nine runs scored in 39 at-bats.

Jake Lamb went 2-for-3 with a triple, two RBI and two walks Friday against the Giants.

Lamb did lose an at-bat to Yasmany Tomas tonight, but that's only because the rout was on. He won't be losing any starts to the Cuban defector, not with the way he's performed the first two weeks. He's 11-for-25 with nine RBI.
Apr 18 - 1:35 AM

Brandon Belt went 0-for-3 as the Giants' No. 6 hitter in Friday's loss.

Before Hunter Pence got hurt, the Giants indicated that Belt could open the season batting third. However, that injury rearranged the lineup and Belt has hit fourth twice, fifth four times and now sixth once, going 2-for-26 in the process. His bat will warm up, but his fantasy value has already taken a hit. Hopefully, things will get better for the Giants lineup as a whole once Pence returns.

Yovani Gallardo tossed six scoreless innings Friday for the win as the Rangers beat the Mariners 3-1.

Gallardo has won back-to-back starts since his Opening Day debacle, bringing his ERA down to 3.45 in the process. It does come with a 1.66 WHIP, though. He's strictly an AL-only guy at this stage of his career.
Apr 18 - 1:25 AM

Neftali Feliz earned his second save in as many chances Friday against the Mariners.

Feliz hasn't really inspired much confidence since the spring, but he's always owned the Mariners. This makes 27 scoreless innings against the team in one start and 21 relief appearances.
Apr 18 - 1:23 AM

J.A. Happ yielded two runs in seven innings Friday in a loss to the Rangers.

Happ has given the Mariners consecutive quality starts with no victories to show for it. His next start will come against the Astros, giving him a chance to rack up more strikeouts than the four he's totaled in his first two starts.
Apr 18 - 1:21 AM

Robinson Chirinos homered and doubled to lead the Rangers offense in Friday's win.

Chirinos is 4-for-8 with two homers in his last two starts after opening the season 1-for-13. He figures to have a tough time staying healthy while catching regularly for the Rangers, but until he gets hurt, he should be a decent second catcher in mixed leagues.
Apr 18 - 1:17 AM

Mike Zunino went 0-for-3 in Friday's loss and is still without an RBI this season.

Zunino had a great spring, but it certainly hasn't carried over, as he's started the season 4-for-33 with a 15/2 K/BB ratio in 10 games. The power numbers will be there in the end, but it's not a given that he'll improve much on last year's .199 average.
