Zack Wheeler New York Mets

Went 2-3 with a HR, 3 RBI, and 2 runs scored tonight.

But I'm guessing his owners are more interested in his 7 shutout innings with 11 Ks

Robert Stephenson Cincinnati Reds

Way to jinx Burdi.

Ronny Rodriguez Detroit Tigers

Two doubles and a homer this afternoon in Fenway. His four round-trippers this spring went unnoticed by me.

Tigers moved to a game over .500, while the Red Sox dropped to 3-4 at home, 9-15 overall.

Jorge Polanco Minnesota Twins

On Lynch's list of interesting players (under Walker).  Was in Houston last night and he was just crushing every ball he hit.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Toronto Blue Jays

I had heard this morning that Rodgers Communications didn't want to compete with hockey game 7s, so they were going to hold his debut until Friday.  Seems fishy to delay his debut in a dome due to rain.

Eugene Freedman EugeneFreed
Eric Byrnes Seattle Mariners

Byrnes breaks world record ... 420 holes of golf in 24 hours!  STUD!

I've updated his Wikipedia page :-)

Howard Lynch LynchMob
Jose Quintana Chicago Cubs

Just having in on my team seems ... risky ... and now I'm faced with ... do I keep him active this week?  home vs LAD today and @AZ on Sunday

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Toronto Blue Jays

Not today :-( ... debut postponed due to rain!

Christian Walker Arizona Diamondbacks

These 5 players have opened eyes in April ... 

Walker, Stephenson, Fried, Polanco, Goodrum

Walker, a first baseman, has always been stuck. Drafted by Baltimore in 2012, he was blocked by Chris Davis, back when Davis was still a star. From there, he went briefly to Atlanta (where he was never going to play ahead of Freddie Freeman), then Cincinnati (Joey Votto) and finally Arizona (Paul Goldschmidt). He went through all four teams in the span of about six weeks during Spring Training in 2017, then spent the majority of 2017-18 in Triple-A Reno, bashing 50 homers and popping up every so often to crush Clayton Kershaw.

Isaac Galloway Miami Marlins

He was to this Oracle in the PCL on Sunday night. Less so to Peter, who was glad when the Broad Street Bullies pushed us aside.

9 years is a long time between notices.

There's a lot of shakeup brewing in that AAAA group that the Marlins keep throwing out in the OF.  Brinson and Granderson are combining for an OPS around .550 ... and while Granderson has had his moments (3 HR) a 38% K rate suggests he's doing a lot of guessing these days.  Prado is playing well enough to bump Anderson out to the OF some days.  Cooper is coming back, but Pete O'Brien has done nothing to motivate the Marlins to move his oft-injured carcass to the OF and leave Pete at 1B.  Austin Dean had one good day ... then enough bad ones to quickly exile him back to New Orleans.

Which makes Galloway ... interesting.

Jose Rojas Los Angeles Angels

He was drafted in the 36th round in 2016. Born in Anaheim. Played some baseball at Vanguard, a college in California.

Alex Patton Alex

Jose Rojas, 3B, Angels. Rojas had a four-hit day for Triple-A Salt Lake, driving in six runs and scoring twice. He crushed a grand slam to right field in the seventh inning, and followed that up with a solo home run to right field in the ninth. The Angels’ No. 28 prospect doesn’t have a high ceiling but takes quality at-bats and can play multiple positions on the infield.

Tanner Houck Boston Red Sox

Tanner Houck, RHP, Red Sox. Houck tossed five scoreless innings in a rain-shortened game for Double-A Portland. The righthander allowed just one hit and tied a career-high nine strikeouts. Boston’s No. 7 prospect works from a low three-quarter arm slot, attacking hitters with a fastball-slider combo.

Alex Patton Alex
Jose Siri Cincinnati Reds

Jose Siri, OF, Reds. Siri had a double and a home run for Double-A Pensacola in the first game of a double header. His three-run home run was part of a four-RBI day for the Reds’ No. 9 prospect. Siri is an excellent defender but will have to manage the strike zone better if he wants to crack the big league roster in the near future.

Dylan Carlson St. Louis Cardinals

Dylan Carlson, OF, Cardinals. Carlson had a three-hit night, scored three times and collected three RBI for Double-A Springfield. The outfielder crushed a three-run home run in the first inning to right-center field. The Cardinals’ No. 10 prospect has good on-base skills and profiles as an above-average corner outfielder who flashes a plus arm. 

Alex Patton Alex
Dexter Fowler St. Louis Cardinals

Knocked out four hits, one over the fence, scored three, drove in four last night. In the last 14 days he's batting .415.

I was surprised to see he was on anyone's team in the mixed-league XFL (which has monthly claims). Glad to see he wasn't active. 

Alex Patton Alex
Jonathan Holder New York Yankees

Saved his own game pitching the 13th and 14th last night in Anaheim. Having given up seven earned runs in his previous five appearances, he was a free agent in most leagues, if not all.

Carlos Estevez Colorado Rockies

I hadn't noticed the K/W.

VULTURE SAVE WATCH
