Yasmani Grandal delivered a pinch-hit homer Friday against the Giants.

The Padres have fallen in love with Rene Rivera's defense, and he started his seventh game tonight, matching Grandal's total. Nick Hundley has also remained in the mix, starting three games. Grandal should see his role increase as the year goes along.

Jason Vargas spun seven scoreless frames in 5-0 win over the Twins on Friday night.

Vargas scattered seven hits (all singles) in the victory while walking just one batter and fanning four. The 31-year-old left-hander has been excellent so far this season, going at least seven innings in all four of his starts while allowing two runs or fewer in all of them. We don't expect the 1.24 ERA to last, but the Royals have to be thrilled with the early returns on their offseason investment.

Ricky Nolasco was knocked around for five runs over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Royals on Friday night.

Nolasco gave up 11 hits in the loss, including a two-run home run to Mike Moustakas. Signed to a four-year, $49 million contract over the winter, the veteran right-hander has allowed five runs in three out of his first four starts this season. That's not what the Twins had in mind.

Mike Moustakas smacked a two-run homer in Friday's win over the Twins.

After going homerless over his first 11 games this season, Moustakas has gone deep twice in the past three days. It's encouraging, but those fantasy owners who invested based on his red-hot spring training are still likely to be disappointed.

Brandon Belt went 2-for-4 and hit his sixth homer Friday against the Padres.

Belt's homer off Huston Street in the ninth scored the Giants' lone run of the game. He's now tied with Giancarlo Stanton, Mark Trumbo, Jose Bautista and Pedro Alvarez for the major league lead in homers.

Omar Infante went 2-for-4 with two RBI on Friday against the Twins.

Infante knocked in Alcides Escobar with an infield single in the third inning and later drove him in again in the fifth inning with a clean single to right field. The veteran infielder is 6-for-28 (.214) with one home run and five RBI since he took a pitch to the face on April 7.
Apr 19 - 12:57 AM

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.
Apr 19 - 12:57 AM

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.
