Notes:

  • Jim Henderson notched his third save of the season in Friday’s win over the Cubs. Dioner Navarro reached with a two-out single in the top of the ninth, but Jonathan Lucroy was able to throw out pinch-runner Julio Borbon on a stolen base attempt at second base to finish off the one-run victory. Henderson has allowed just one run over eight innings this season to go along with a 10/1 K/BB ratio. While Axford has pitched much better recently in lower-leverage situations, Henderson is the pitcher to own in this bullpen at the moment. (Rotoworld)
  • Ryan Braun clubbed a three-run homer in Friday’s win over the Cubs. It was the big blow in a four-run first inning off Jeff Samardzija. Braun has now homered in back-to-back games, so perhaps he’s busting out of his recent mini-slump. (Rotoworld)
  • Kevin Slowey pitched well in a no-decision against the Reds on Friday, allowing just one run on four hits over six strong innings. Slowey punched out four on the evening while walking one. He has been a very pleasant surprise in the Marlins rotation in the early going, posting a 1.90 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 15/6 K/BB ratio over 23 2/3 innings. As well as he’s pitched, poor offensive support means he’ll head into Thursday’s start against the Cubs still in search of his first victory. He’s starting to be worth a look as a matchup play in deeper mixed leagues. (Rotoworld)
  • Ted Lilly (shoulder) will be activated from the disabled list to start next Wednesday against the Mets. Lilly will take the place of Chris Capuano, who was placed on the disabled list this week with a calf strain. The 37-year-old southpaw had surgery on his shoulder last September and wasn’t overly impressive in his two rehab starts with High-A Rancho Cucamonga. Lilly has finished with an ERA under 4.00 each of the last four seasons, so he could be of some use to those in deeper formats, but most fantasy owners can afford to wait and see for now. (Rotoworld)
  • Michael Wacha, RHP, Cardinals (Triple-A Memphis): 7.0 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 3 K; fastball has been up to 95; curveball has taken steps forward as a professional with plus potential; plus changeup; proving that stuff can hold up as a starter; has taken steps forward since being drafted
  • Mike Adams said Friday that he wishes he “felt a little bit better.” Adams owns a 2.57 ERA and 12/2 K/BB ratio over seven innings this season, but he has displayed diminished velocity. The veteran set-up man indicated that he might not be 100 percent following October to correct his thoracic outlet syndrome, so the situation is worth monitoring. He joined the Phillies this winter on a two-year, $12 million contract. (Rotoworld)
  • Kyuji Fujikawa (forearm) played catch from a distance of 75 feet on Friday. It was his first time throwing since he was placed on the disabled list last week with a sprained right forearm. Fujikawa will likely require a brief minor league rehab assignment, but he should be ready to return right around when he’s first eligible. The Cubs are using a closer-by-committee right now, but Fujikawa should get the job back once he’s back to full health. (Rotoworld)
  • Freddie Freeman (oblique) went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts in a rehab game Friday with Triple-A Gwinnett. It was Freeman’s first game action since being placed on the disabled list. He’ll continue his rehab assignment again Saturday before the Braves active him for their upcoming three-game series against the Rockies. Freeman was batting .412 (7-for-17) with one home run, one double and seven RBI prior to the injury. (Rotoworld)
