Adrian Gonzalez went 3-for-4 with two doubles and three runs scored versus the Rockies on Friday.

Even though the homer binge ended quickly, Gonzalez is still batting a robust .550 through 40 at-bats. He has six doubles in his last five games, and he's already scored 13 runs in 10 games despite still running like he's Adrian Gonzalez.

Howie Kendrick had a two-run homer and an RBI double against the Rockies on Friday.

Kendrick is a top-10 fantasy second baseman as a middle-of-the-order bat for the Dodgers. He's hitting .342 right now, and he's up to eight RBI in 10 games.
Apr 18 - 1:50 AM

Charlie Blackmon took Clayton Kershaw deep on Friday for his first homer of the season.

That's the kind of thing that will help keep him in the lineup against left-handers. Blackmon spent most of last April hitting over .400, but he's been quieter this month, batting .263 with six runs scored, four RBI and one steal in 38 at-bats. He'll have value in mixed leagues for as long as the Rockies continue leading him off.

Josh Collmenter pitched his second career shutout and went 3-for-5 with an RBI at the plate Friday against the Giants.

He ended up with almost as many hits as the four he allowed on the night. He struck out just two, but allowing the Giants to put the ball in play hasn't hurt many pitchers of late (Collmenter being one exception, having given up five runs in a loss to the Giants on Opening Day). Collmenter's previous shutout came last May 29 against the Reds. Unless the Diamondbacks decide to rearrange their rotation and pitch him Wednesday against the Rangers, he's due to face the Pirates next time out.

Jake Peavy yielded four runs and eight hits in 3 2/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

It's worth wondering if the Giants would have allowed Peavy to pitch Sunday if they hadn't already lost Matt Cain to the DL. He hasn't been effective either time out while trying to manage his troublesome back, and he still might need a DL stint.
Apr 18 - 1:39 AM

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.
Apr 18 - 1:37 AM

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.
