Colin Rea picked up a quality start and his second win of the season on Saturday versus the Dodgers, allowing two runs in six innings.

This is realistically what Rea can be at the big-league level, a guy who throws strikes, eats innings and collects quality starts. He'll struggle when he falls behind in counts -- like he did to Chase Utley in the third inning -- but he always seems to be just effective enough. The right-hander has allowed more than three runs in just one outing this year and now owns a 4.61 ERA in 27.1 innings with an unimpressive 22/13 K/BB ratio. He'll next get the red-hot Mets at home.

Jake McGee continued to walk a tight rope on Saturday, working around two hits to secure his fifth save of the season in a 5-2 victory over the Rockies.

When McGee gave up a lead-off single to Paul Goldschmidt, everyone had flashbacks to his disastrous outing against the Dodgers on April 24. The lefty quickly erased the threat with a double-play ball, but made life hard on himself when Welington Castillo doubled in the next at-bat. Luckily, Nolan Arenado made a nice play on a high chopper to retire David Peralta for the third out. McGee has a 7.04 ERA in 7 2/3 innings with a 3/3 K/BB ratio. He's a low-end closer in fantasy leagues at the moment.

Trevor Story went 2-for-5 with a double and a triple, driving in three runs in Saturday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Story has his unsightly warts, but he calls Coors home and hits for enough power to potentially be an upper-crust option at the shortstop position. His two-run triple in the ninth proved to be the go-ahead hit for the Rockies. He's now hitting .261/.324/.696 in 21 games and has a combined 17 extra-base hits and 20 RBI. Of course, he has those 37 strikeouts in just 102 PA lurking in the background as a potential ball-and-chain.

Brandon Drury temporarily tied the game with a two-run homer in the sixth inning against the Rockies on Saturday, but the Diamondbacks ultimately lost it in the ninth.

Drury is hitting .294/.310/.588 with four homers and 10 RBI, and he has now started seven-consecutive games at four different positions. The top-100 prospect is worth adding in deeper leagues, as he's a sneaky power option with second-base eligibility. It's worth noting, though, that he only has one walk in 71 PA. Patience has never been his forte in the minors, and big-league pitchers have a funny way of exploiting that weakness. His leash won't be too long, either, as the Diamondbacks have plenty of good hitters jockeying for playing time.

Zack Greinke threw seven strong innings against the Rockies on Saturday night, striking out eight and surrendering just two runs in a no-decision.

Greinke has had a roller-coaster start to his Diamondbacks career, but threw the ball well against a tough opponent. He probably feels hard done by his second run allowed, too, as it came on a jam-shot blooper with two outs in the third. Still, he has 32 strikeouts in 37 2/3 innings this year and will likely see his 5.50 ERA drop closer to his 3.74 FIP as the season progresses. The right-hander has a wonderful matchup looming against the woeful Braves on Friday.

Chris Rusin baffled the Diamondbacks in Saturday's victory, tossing five scoreless innings on just one hit, while striking out six.

Rusin was lifted after five innings, as it was only his first start of the year and he’s not yet stretched out, but he was very good in a difficult ballpark. The lefty had a 77.8 percent ground-ball rate and struck out more than a batter per inning. Yeah, he walked three, but getting out of Arizona with only one hit allowed is a job well done -- especially when the other option was trotting Jordan Lyles out for another start. Rusin still isn’t worth picking up in fantasy leagues, even with the strong showing. He has a 1.69 ERA in 16 innings and will face the Giants on the road, if he continues to get the ball every fifth day.
May 1 - 12:03 AM

Mitch Moreland capped off a six-run third inning with a three-run blast in Saturday's 7-2 victory over the Angels.

Moreland got a 90-mph cookie up in the zone from Matt Shoemaker, who had absolutely nothing left in the tank by the time the Rangers' first baseman stepped into the box. He's now hitting .257/.313/.459 with three homers and 11 RBI in 80 plate appearances. That's almost identical to his career numbers, too, so don't expect too much more from the 30-year-old slugger this year.

According to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the possibility of the Brewers trading Ryan Braun is becoming "more realistic."

If the Brewers want to sell high, now would be the time to do it. Braun has gotten off to a great start, hitting .333 with five homers and 18 RBI over his first 22 games. The Brewers are sitting at 8-15 right now and things probably aren't going to get much better as the season wears on. Braun still has four years left on his contract so there's no immediate incentive to move him, though trading him to acquire prospects wouldn't be a bad move as Milwaukee looks to rebuild. The 32-year-old has the power to veto a trade to any team except the Angels, Dodgers, Marlins, Nationals and Rays.
