Mat Latos was saddled with the loss on Saturday after allowing two runs over five innings to the Mets.

This was Latos' most routine start of the year. In his first outing, the Braves rocked him for seven runs in the first inning, and in his second outing, Mother Nature handed him a 40-minute rain delay after four frames, from which Latos did not return. On Saturday, he finally managed to make it past the fourth inning. Latos struck out five, walked one and scattered six hits against the Mets. Other than a Juan Lagares RBI single in the second inning and a Travis D'naurd solo home run in the third, Latos pitched cleanly. This was definitely a step in the right direction for the pitcher, who spoke of mechanical issues in the spring. Until he's able to show some kind of consistency, though, it might be best to avoid him in mixed leagues. He'll look to continue on the uptrend when he faces the Nationals in his next start.

Alex Gordon hit a double and a single in Saturday's loss to the A's.

Gordon finished the game 2-for-4. In the early going, he's one of just a few Royal offensive players who are struggling, slashing .222/.400/.259. Almost every other regular batter on the team is hitting over .300. Gordon's not in danger of losing his starting job, but he might see a few days off here and there until the bat starts heating up.

Josh Reddick hit his first home run of the season in Saturday's 5-0 win over the Royals.

Reddick launched a three-run shot off of Yordano Ventura in the fourth inning. Next batter Brett Lawrie paid the bill on that one, as Ventura plunked him and was ejected. Extracurricular activity aside, Reddick finished the game 2-for-4. He had been on the shelf for more than a month as he recovered from an oblique injury. Reddick hit 12 home runs in his 2013 and 2014 campaigns, both of which were shortened by injuries. When healthy, he's a potential 20+ home run player.

Prior to being pulled with a possible hand injury, Jesse Hahn held the Royals scoreless in 5 1/3 innings.

Hahn left the game with a blister injury. It was a tough blow to the pitcher, as he had only thrown 65 pitches at the time of his exit. To that point, the Royals had only managed three hits. Through three starts, Hahn has allowed four runs over 16 2/3 innings, working out to a 2.12 ERA. If the injury is relatively minor, he's a viable fantasy starter who might still be floating around on some waiver wires.

Yordano Ventura (leg) allowed five runs in 3 1/3 innings before he was ejected for plunking Brett Lawrie.

Ventura was dealing with cramps at the beginning of the season, having to exit his first start with a right thumb cramp and his second start with a right calf cramp. On Saturday, he was ejected before his muscles could do him in. Ventura plunked Lawrie immediately after Josh Reddick smashed a three-run homer off the pitcher.He struck out two and walked two in his limited time on the mound. Once he stops cramping up and stops throwing tantrums, Ventura should be a valuable fantasy starter. Last season, he held a 3.20 ERA and a 1.295 WHIP in 183 innings. If he's not suspended, Ventura will face the White Sox in his next outing. Otherwise, we might be looking at Chris Young.

Angels optioned LHP Adam Wilk to Triple-A Salt Lake.

The Angels sent him down to make room for Garrett Richards, who will make his debut Sunday. Wilk only made one appearance, pitching two innings against the Tigers on Wednesday. Wilk will probably be up again the next time an Angels reliever gets hurt.
