Marcus Semien went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Monday in a win over the Angels.

Semien went yard off of Matt Shoemaker in the fourth inning to boost the Athletics' lead to 5-3. The shortstop had been in a bit of a funk, going just 2-for-17 in his previous five games entering Monday.

Tyler Clippard got his first save of the season, but had to escape some ninth-inning trouble to help the Athletics top the Angels on Monday.

Protecting a three-run lead, Clippard issued a leadoff walk to Erick Aybar, then walked Johnny Giovotella with two outs. He was able to get Kole Calhoun to line out to left field to end the game. It's only the second save of the year for the Athletics as they have massively outscored their opponents in their seven wins. Clippard will continue to get the ball in save opportunities when they present themselves.

Stephen Vogt walked and slugged a three-run home run in four at-bats as the Athletics won against the Angels on Monday.

Vogt put the A's back on top 4-2 with his three-run home run off of Matt Shoemaker in the third inning. The catcher has been terrific to start the year, hitting .366/.435/.780 with four home runs and 12 RBI to begin the season.

Corey Dickerson had to leave Monday's game versus the Padres due to what Rockies manager Walt Weiss referred to as "mild" plantar fasciitis in his left foot.

That Weiss is calling the ailment mild suggests that they'll try to avoid putting Dickerson on the disabled list for the time being. It's definitely and injury that can be nagging, though, so fantasy owners should have a contingency plan in place. Dickerson is batting .286/.314/.510 with two homers and 10 RBI this season. Drew Stubbs would stand to gain the extra playing time while Dickerson is out.

Yonder Alonso plated three runs in a 2-for-4 effort as the Padres ran roughshod over the Rockies 14-3 on Monday.

Alonso singled in two runs in the first inning and added a sacrifice fly in the second. The first baseman entered the season as one of the weaker-hitting players at his position but has been on fire in his first 52 plate appearances, carrying a .364/.453/.477 triple-slash line with one home run and seven RBI.
Apr 21 - 12:08 AM

Odrisamer Despaigne picked up his second win of the season against the Rockies on Monday, limiting them to two runs in 6 2/3 innings.

Both runs scored in the fourth inning, when the Rockies enjoyed a pair of RBI singles, but they were too far behind for it to matter at that point. Despaigne gave up six hits and walked two while striking out five on the night. The right-hander has been excellent in three starts, owning a 1.47 ERA with a 0.34 WHIP and a 9/4 K/BB ratio in 18 1/3 innings. Despaigne will have to work against a tough Dodgers lineup at home in his next start.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Cubs plan to call up infield prospect Addison Russell.

Russell has played just five games at second base, but the Cubs have apparently seen enough that they think he's ready to help at the position in the majors. It certainly wouldn't be hard for him to represent an upgrade, as journeyman Jonathan Herrera has been seeing most of the playing time there of late. Russell is just 21, but he's a career .301/.377/.520 hitter so far in the minors and the consensus among scouts is that his bat his major league-ready. He needs to be owned in all fantasy leagues.

Derek Norris doubled twice and singled in five at-bats in Monday's trampling of the Rockies.

Norris scored all three times he was on base and even knocked in a run with a double in the fifth inning. Most of the offense Norris has shown so far has been in the form of singles, but he still boasts a productive .314/.340/.412 triple-slash line in 51 plate appearances.
