Tim Beckham hit his third home run of the season when he went yard against Jeff Francis in the seventh inning of Friday's romp over the Blue Jays.

Beckham's been a pinch-hit wizard, with both of his other homers this season coming off the bench. While Beckham did pinch-hit for David DeJesus against the Blue Jays on Friday, the home run came in his second at-bat. He finished the game 2-for-2 with two RBI and a run scored. A former No. 1 overall pick, his strong bench bat would probably be fun to own just for the sake of awesomeness. Over 36 at-bats, he's hitting .278/.325/.583. It's not quite enough at-bats to say he's a must-add, but if he's floating on the waiver wire, keep an eye on him.

C.J. Cron went 3-for-4 with a double Friday against the Rangers.

With Josh Hamilton departing, this sure would be a good time for Cron to step up his game. He's currently batting .209 with one homer and just two walks in 43 at-bats. The Angels want Cron to be their DH and Matt Joyce to be their primary left fielder going forward, but they might need to end up replacing one of the two before the trade deadline.
Apr 25 - 1:12 AM

James Loney hit a two-run home run off of R.A. Dickey in the fourth inning of Friday's blowout win over the Blue Jays.

Loney had not played since April 6th, as the first baseman's been recovering from a right oblique strain. He came back in style, swatting the big fly in the fourth inning of a game in which the Rays would score 12 runs on 13 hits. Loney hit .290/.386/.380 in 2014. He has a bit of pop in his bat, but he isn't worth owning in mixed leagues.
Apr 25 - 1:01 AM

Jose Reyes went 0-for-3 in Friday's blowout loss to the Rays.

Reyes, who is dealing with a small fracture in his left rib, went hit-less against the Rays and has not recorded a hit in his last seven at-bats. Stretching beyond the last few games, he has just one hit since April 21, spanning 15 at-bats. While he has avoided a stay on the disabled list for the time being, it's not a surprise that the speedy shortstop has struggled of late. Reyes is hitting just .250/.268/.308 and has limited fantasy value until he starts getting on base more.
Apr 25 - 12:52 AM

Gerrit Cole upped his record to 3-0 by limiting the Diamondbacks to one run in 7 2/3 innings on Friday.

Cole struck out seven and walked two in the gem. He's allowed exactly one earned run in each of his last three starts, and he's struck out 27 batters in 24 2/3 innings for the year.
Apr 25 - 12:51 AM

Mark Melancon pitched a flawless ninth in a three-run game for his fourth save against the Diamondbacks.

Melancon will remain quite shaky while dealing with diminished velocity, but the Pirates don't want to make a switch unless they have to. He's helped the cause with easy saves the last two days.
Apr 25 - 12:49 AM

Josh Harrison had two hits, including a two-run double, Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Harrison was thrown out trying to advance on the double, but that's okay. He also had two hits Thursday, so he's upped his average from .196 to .234 the last two days.
Apr 25 - 12:48 AM

Nick Ahmed went 0-for-3 before being removed for a pinch-hitter Friday against the Pirates.

Ahmed is quite the defender, but he's batting .128 with one extra-base hit, one RBI and one run scored through 47 at-bats. He can't remain quite this bad, but he's likely to be the NL's worst offensive regular for however long the Diamondbacks stick with him.
