Notes:

  • Brandon Phillips blasted a pair of home runs and drove home three in a losing effort against the Pirates on Friday. Phillips finished the night 2-for-5 with two runs scored and three RBI. He tagged A.J. Burnett for a solo shot in the second inning, then added a two-run bomb off Tony Watson in the seventh that knotted the score at 5-5. He’s settled nicely into the cleanup role in the absence of Ryan Ludwick, hitting .318/.340/.682 with four homers and 11 RBI on the season. (Rotoworld)
  • Mark Saxon of ESPNLosAngeles.com believes that Ted Lilly might be the leading candidate to assume Zack Greinke’s spot in the rotation. The other option is Chris Capuano, but Capuano isn’t as stretched out as Lilly is right now, and the Dodgers don’t believe Lilly would take to the bullpen very well. Lilly is on a rehab assignment, but he’s been healthy for a while and reached 90 pitches Wednesday in his most recent outing. Greinke’s next turn comes up on Tuesday. (Rotoworld)
  • Wilton Lopez holds a 10.80 ERA and has allowed 10 hits in just 3 1/3 innings so far this season. Much of the damage came on Opening Day, when Lopez allowed three runs on four hits over an inning of work. Still, he’s given up a run an six hits since then while striking out just one batter. The reliever’s velocity has been down a tick so far, but so far there’s been no talk that last year’s elbow issue is a problem again. Lopez could get passed by Rex Brothers as the Rockies’ backup plan at closer if his struggles continue. (Rotoworld)
  • Russell Martin is batting just .043 (1-for-23) so far this season. Martin was hitless in his first six games to start the year before doubling in his first at-bats of Tuesday’s game. The veteran backstop’s batting average has been in a steady decline the last few seasons, sinking to a career-low .211 last year. He still has pop, though, and should help fantasy owners in that department. (Rotoworld)
  • Todd Frazier is not in Friday’s lineup against the Pirates. Frazier is hitless in his last 12 at-bats, so Reds manager Dusty Baker is just giving him a breather. Jack Hannahan will start in his place at the hot corner. (Rotoworld)
  • Kyuji Fujikawa suffered a blown save, only to end up with a win, after giving up three runs in the ninth Friday against the Giants. Things could have worked out differently: Pablo Sandoval’s bloop single to right may well have been caught if the Cubs hadn’t been playing a no-doubles defense and Hunter Pence would have hit into a game-ending double play if Starlin Castro hadn’t been slow to get it started. That said, Fujikawa wasn’t all that impressive today, especially on the splitter he left up to Brandon Belt for a game-tying double. The closer’s role is his for now, but he hasn’t built up much job security yet. (Rotoworld)
