Notes:

  • Ryan Braun (neck) remained out of the Brewers’ lineup Sunday. Braun is dealing with a pretty severe case of neck spasms and has now missed all three starts of the series against the Diamondbacks. A trip to the disabled list seems unlikely, but it’s not clear when he’ll return to action. Logan Schafer is starting in left field in his place. (Rotoworld)
  • Even when working through back issues and mediocre performance with the Angels last season, I (CBS author) was willing to give Dan Haren the benefit of the doubt. After years of consistent production, I was reluctant to sit him or adivse others to do so. In his first start with the Nationals, Haren was plagued yet again by decreased velocity and home runs — four in all. Granted, the Reds have hit seven homers in their five other games, all of which were at Great American Ball Park, but Haren’s increasing tendency to allow the long ball is a troublesome trend. (CBS Sports)
  • Throughout spring training, Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth insisted he was healthy after missing nearly three months last season with a broken left wrist. Werth appears to be regaining his power as he slugged his second homer of the season Saturday at Cincinnati — just three shy of his total from all of last year. “He looks great. He has really worked hard on his positioning in the batter’s box,” hitting coach Rick Eckstein told MLB.com Sunday. “He feels like he is in position that he can drive the baseball. He’s feeling good about what he is doing and where he is. He is continuing to grow in that process. It looks like his wrist is doing great.” With a home start against the White Sox Thursday, Haren can show us what he can do in a more neutral environment. Even if all does not go well, he is slated to face the Marlins in Miami in Fantasy Week 3 (April 15-22). He is worth keeping active at least through that start, but owners should watch closely for signs of improvement or be prepared to bench him thereafter. (CBS Sports)
