Nick Franklin went 2-for-3 with a solo homer, powering the Mariners to a 12-1 victory over the Padres in Cactus League play on Friday.

The talented 22-year-old infielder is the odd-man out in the Mariners infield after the big offseason acquisition of Robinson Cano. Unless he can displace Brad Miller as the team's starting shortstop, he's likely to be shopped around and could be donning a new uniform prior to Opening Day. His fantasy value hinges on whether he earns a starting role someplace and is in line for everyday at-bats.

Carlos Correa went 3-for-5 with a homer, a double and three RBI in the Astros' 16-4 rout of the Twins on Wednesday.

Correa was due to bust out with one of these; since hitting two home runs on April 6 he had remained quiet, going 23 straight games without a homer. There was no way American League pitchers were going to keep him down for much longer. He's back up to .276/.388/.469 for the year now.

Jacoby Ellsbury was perfect on Wednesday night, going 3-for-3 with two walks and two stolen bases against the Orioles.

Ellsbury turned back the clocks and reminded us how dynamic he can be on the baseball diamond. He's now hitting .271/.327/.396 with seven stolen bases. Fantasy owners desperately want the power to return, but the 32-year-old is showing that he can still be an effective fantasy player with a good batting average and the potential for 30-plus steals.

After being hit on the right elbow by a pitch in Wednesday's win over the Orioles, Brett Gardner's X-rays came back negative.

Gardner was plunked on the elbow in the top of the eighth inning. It actually resulted in an RBI for the run-hungry Yankees, as the bases were loaded at the time. He would stay in the game before being lifted for defensive replacement Dustin Ackley in the ninth. After the win, manager Joe Girardi said that the speedy outfielder was "pretty sore." Consider him day-to-day moving forward unless the Yankees indicate otherwise.

Russell Martin looped a walk-off single over the head of Nomar Mazara in right field to secure a 4-3 victory over the Rangers on Wednesday.

Martin took reliever Tony Barnette to deep right field with the bases loaded to plate the winning run. It's been a difficult season for the 33-year-old catcher, as he's dealt with neck stiffness that has kept him from playing everyday and has hindered his abilities at the plate. He's hitting .169/.241/.183 and has just one extra-base hit all year, though his walk-off single would've been a double in any other situation.
May 4 - 10:25 PM

Steven Souza exited Wednesday's game against the Dodgers with a pectoral spasm.

Souza whacked a solo home run in the fourth inning for his lone hit in two at-bats. The pectoral issue raised its ugly head several innings later and he was replaced in center field by Kevin Kiermaier in the seventh inning. Per the Rays, Souza's injury is not considered major.
May 4 - 9:37 PM

Corey Kluber twirled a gem with Wednesday's complete-game shutout against the Tigers, striking out seven and scattering five hits.

Kluber spun his wheels out of the gate in 2016, but has been brilliant in his last three starts. He's only allowed three earned runs in his last 24 innings, striking out 23 batters and walking just two. The right-hander benefited from some nifty defense at the hands of Francisco Lindor on Wednesday, but that isn't projected to change anytime soon. In other words, that's a feature, not a bug. Kluber has won two of his last three games and has a 3.35 ERA with a 2.57 FIP in 43 innings. He'll next get the Astros on the road.
May 4 - 8:43 PM

Hanley Ramirez was scratched from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the White Sox due to flu-like symptoms.

With Ramirez being scratched late, Travis Shaw shifts over to first from third. Josh Rutledge is the other domino, here, taking Shaw's place at third base. Shaw is hitting sixth and Rutledge is hitting seventh. Consider Ramirez day-to-day moving forward. The Red Sox do not have an off day on Thursday and could give the slugger another day off if he is still feeling queasy in 24 hours.
May 4 - 7:29 PM

Dae-Ho Lee went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and three RBI in Wednesday's 9-8 win over the A's.

After the A's took an 8-4 lead in the fifth inning, Lee was instrumental in sparking the big comeback. He would crack a solo homer as part of a two-run sixth, then one-up himself in the seventh with a two-run tater. That shot would push the Mariners to a 9-8 lead, which would stand as the final. The 33-year-old slugger from South Korea doesn't play every day, but through 32 major league at-bats, he is slashing .281/.343/.656 with four homers and six RBI.
May 4 - 7:10 PM

Felix Hernandez struggled in earning a no-decision against the A's in Wednesday's 9-8 win, yielding eight runs (four earned) on nine hits over four-plus innings.

Hernandez blanked the Royals into the eighth inning in his last start, but he found no such smooth sailing on Wednesday. It all fell apart rather quickly, too. After allowing solitary runs in the third and fourth innings, the veteran ace trotted back out to start the fifth inning to less than stellar results. The A's opened the frame with four consecutive singles, which were then followed up by a pair of run-scoring errors on the parts of Hernandez and Kyle Seager. King Felix ceded the mound to Vidal Nuno at that point, with Nuno allowing the final two runs on his line. Despite the rough outing, Hernandez still holds a 2.21 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 29/18 K/BB ratio over 36 2/3 innings. A road tilt with the Rays shows next on his schedule.
May 4 - 6:50 PM

Tyler Chatwood pitched marvelously in Wednesday's 2-0 win over the Padres, tossing eight innings of shutout ball.

Chatwood allowed just three hits on the afternoon. He also struck out seven against one walk in what was an ultra-efficient outing. The 26-year-old right-hander finished his eight innings having thrown 99 pitches (61 strikes). Relying on anybody in the Rockies' pitching staff for fantasy purposes carries its own set of risks, but there is no denying Chatwood's overall body of work. Through 37 2/3 innings, he holds a 2.15 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 27/8 K/BB ratio. Up next on his schedule, a home showdown with the Diamondbacks.
May 4 - 6:23 PM

Garrett Richards (fatigue) will see a doctor.

Richards was battling with signs of dehydration this past weekend and MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez relayed earlier on Wednesday that hard-throwing right-hander "seems questionable" for his scheduled start on Friday. Richards, himself, indicated that he continues to feel fatigued. His visit to the doctor should help shed light on his short-term starting status.
