Nationals manager Matt Williams said Gio Gonzalez was removed from Wednesday's game with some shoulder tightness.

It explains why Gonzalez was removed after allowing just one run through two batters in the sixth inning. Williams said he doesn't consider it to be a big deal, with Gio saying he expects to make his next start. Still, anytime a shoulder is involved it's worth monitoring the situation.

Ernesto Frieri blew his second save of the season, allowing four runs in the bottom of the ninth as the Nationals walked off 5-4 winners over the Angels.

Frieri, who saved 37 games for the Angels last season, has not been able to get the job done in the early going. Against the Nationals, he allowed a home run to Jose Lobaton to lead off the ninth, then got a strike out. From there, he allowed a single, a walk, a two-run double, and a walk-off RBI single to Adam LaRoche. On the season, Frieri has struck out 12 in 9 1/3 innings, but has also allowed five home runs. One has to wonder if he may be running out of time to right the ship.

Gio Gonzalez allowed two runs over five innings in Wednesday's start against the Angels, but was given a no-decision.

Gonzalez allowed four hits, walked three, and struck out five. Despite having thrown 83 pitches, manager Matt Williams was quick with the hook after Gonzalez walked Mike Trout and allowed a double to Albert Pujols to start the sixth inning. Gonzalez now has a 3.00 ERA with the same great peripherals we have come to expect over the last two seasons. He gets a good match-up in his next start, as he'll face the lowly Astros.

Mariners optioned INF Nick Franklin to Triple-A Tacoma.

Franklin's stay in Seattle lasted only a week, as he's headed to Las Vegas to meet the Triple-A team on their road trip. In his stay, Franklin was just 2-for-13 with a triple. The move is a little surprising, as the team's starting shortstop, Brad Miller, hasn't been playing terribly well of late either. No corresponding move was announced.

Jered Weaver held the Nationals to one run over six innings in Wednesday's start, but took the no decision.

Ernesto Frieri blew the save in the ninth inning, taking Weaver out of the running for his second win of the season. Weaver allowed seven hits, walked one, and struck out two. Weaver has struck out only five batters in 12 innings over his last two starts, but it's nothing to worry about yet. Weaver will face the Indians in his next start.
Apr 23 - 10:37 PM

Danny Espinosa went 2-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Wednesday's win over the Angels.

Espinosa, now a regular part of the Nats' lineup with Ryan Zimmerman on the shelf, will see plenty of playing time in the immediate future. He strikes out a lot and doesn't walk much, but will swipe the occasional bag, making him a reasonable option in deeper mixed leagues.
Apr 23 - 10:34 PM

Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI, and a run scored in Wednesday's loss to the Nationals.

Trout notched his eighth multi-hit game in his last 12 games. The 22-year-old phenom has wasted no time taking his place at or near the top of many leaderboards. He is slashing .315/.378/.584 after Wednesday's action.
Apr 23 - 10:31 PM

Albert Pujols went 2-for-4 with an RBI double, a walk, and a run scored in Wednesday's loss to the Nationals.

No home runs for Pujols after joining the 500-homer club on Tuesday, but the 34-year-old kept the hot hitting going. Pujols is now slashing .284/.351/.625 in 97 plate appearances. One item worth keeping an eye on is his strikeout rate, as it is markedly lower than it has been since Pujols joined the Angels as a free agent. His current 8.2 percent strikeout rate would be his lowest since 2006.
