Notes:

  • Zack Cozart went 0-for-4 in Thursday’s loss, leaving him with a .195 average and a .220 OBP in 87 at-bats this season. Cozart’s only qualification for batting second in Cincinnati’s order is that he’s a middle infielder. And middle infielders should be able to hit second. It’s a rule or something. Cozart isn’t truly a bad player. He’s a fine defender, and he’s got some real pop in his bat. It’s just that he belongs in the seventh or eighth spot in the lineup and not in between Shin-Soo Choo and Joey Votto. (Rotoworld)
  • Cliff Lee was good early but struggled late Thursday, giving up three runs on 10 hits and a walk over seven innings in a loss to the Pirates. Lee was able to dodge a few bullets in the first five innings, but things got hairy in the sixth and seventh, when he gave up five hits, a walk and all three of his runs. Lee threw 122 pitches Thursday, which is four shy of his career high. After a great first three starts, the lefty hasn’t been extra sharp the last two times out. He’ll bring a 3.03 ERA and 1.04 WHIP into Cleveland next week. (Rotoworld)
  • Juan Pierre went 1-for-5 at the plate Thursday, but knocked in a run, scored a run and stole two bases. Pierre is hitting just .195 on the early season, but has provided owners with the steals they were looking for when they drafted him, as he now has five. (Rotowire)
  • Kevin Slowey was strong in a no-decision Thursday, allowing three runs over six innings of work against the Cubs. He allowed only five hits and walked none while striking out six. Despite a 2.43 ERA and 1.15 WHIP, he is still looking for his first win with the offense-starved Marlins. Despite a solid 2.43 ERA, Slowey is 0-2 as the Marlins have scored just six runs in his five starts. He has 21 strikeouts and just six walks in 29 2/3 innings. Slowely is scheduled to make his next start Tuesday against the Mets. (Rotowire, CBS Sports)
  • Travis Snider, who went 1-for-3 with a run scored Thursday, is batting .309 (17-for-62). Snider’s contact rates are up across the board, including a 91.6 rate for pitches thrown in the strike zone. Most importantly, Snider’s plate discipline (7:12 BB:K) is the best it’s been at the major-league level. He’ll continue to platoon in right field, seeing better than a 50-50 playing-time split against right-handed pitching. (Rotowire)
  • Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips went hitless for the third straight time Thursday, going 0 for 3 against the Nationals in his team’s 8-1 loss. Phillips is 0 for 10 in his last three games and 1 for 16 in his last four, dropping his season average to .264. (CBS Sports)
  • Dodgers reliever Kenley Jansen picked up his first win of the season Thursday. Jansen pitched a scoreless eighth inning, giving up one hit and one walk. Jansen struck out two during the outing. Andre Ethier and Juan Uribe hit run-scoring singles in the ninth, giving Jansen the win. (CBS Sports)

Notes:

  • With Brandon League unavailable, Kenley Jansen notched the save in Thursday’s win over the Padres. League threw 34 pitches to finish off a shaky save on Wednesday night, so Jansen got the call on Thursday. The hard-throwing right-hander delivered a perfect frame and has yet to allow a run in his first 4 2/3 innings of work this season. He’d be the obvious alternative for the closer role if League has a prolonged struggle, so it’s a good idea to keep him stashed away in most leagues. (Rotoworld)
  • The Dodgers will make a decision on what to do with Ted Lilly (shoulder) following his next bullpen session. Lilly made his second rehab start Wednesday, and it’s possible he might refuse to make another one. He’s not injured, but the Dodgers don’t have room for him in their rotation. Unless he’s traded, he’ll probably just replace Aaron Harang as a high-priced long reliever. (Rotoworld)
  • Dan Haren won Thursday despite allowing three runs and 10 hits in five innings against the White Sox. At least Haren didn’t give up any homers tonight. He got some help there from a nice breeze blowing in from center. He ended up striking out five and walking none. He’s not the Dan Haren of old, but given that he’s on such a good team and his tiny walk rate will result in a solid WHIP, no one should be thinking of dropping him in mixed leagues. “I think I took a few steps forward,” Haren said after the game. “I think I threw the ball better than maybe the line score would dictate. The conditions weren’t great out there. Most important thing is we won the game. Obviously, it went a little better than last time, but I still haven’t been at my best yet.” (Rotoworld, CBS Sports)
  • Pirates catcher Russell Martin has managed just one hit in 23 at-bats over eight games this season, adding four walks and one stolen base while striking out three times. The .043/.185/.087 start is somewhat of a repeat of Martin’s 2012 season, when he hit just .167/.338/.296 with two home runs in 68 plate appearances before May 1. Martin topped the low batting average and slugging percentage in each month over the remainder of the season, ending the year with a .211/.311/.403 line. (CBS Sports)
  • When Jason Motte suffered an elbow injury, the Cardinals turned to Mitchell Boggs as the closer. When Boggs imploded Monday against the Reds, most Fantasy players raced to grab Trevor Rosenthal, a 22-year-old who lost a spring training rotation battle and was sent to the bullpen. But Edward Mujica, a 28-year-old righty brought over from the Marlins last year at the trade deadline, may be the dark-horse contender for the Cardinals if Boggs falls apart again (although Boggs pitched a perfect inning Tuesday and looked far better). Mujica has a 2.97 ERA and 1.03 WHIP over the last three seasons, with a somewhat-unimpressive 7.9 K/9 in that span. He doesn’t have the big strikeout numbers of Rosenthal, but the Cardinals may want to take it easy with their uber-prospect, especially considering he’s eventually going to be in the rotation. Mujica shouldn’t be owned outside of deep NL-only Roto leagues — and even there, he doesn’t get enough strikeouts to use every day as a middle reliever — but keep an eye on his usage if Boggs falters again. Although everyone zigs to Rosenthal, you may do well making a zag for Mujica instead. (CBS Sports)

Notes:

  • Ted Lilly (shoulder) will make his next minor league rehab start Wednesday with Triple-A Albuquerque. Lilly allowed five runs (including three home runs) in six innings in his first rehab outing last Friday with High-A Rancho Cucamonga. While his shoulder is healthy, he dealt with the flu during spring training and is still in the process of building arm strength. He’ll likely make at least two more rehab starts before being activated. There’s no room for him in the rotation at the moment, but Dodgers manager Don Mattingly has previously said that he is not suited to pitching in relief. Similar to Aaron Harang, the Dodgers may eventually be able to find a trade partner. (Rotoworld)
  • Hunter Pence belted a three-run homer in Monday’s win over the Rockies. It was Pence’s only hit of the night, but it was all the Giants needed in the 4-2 victory. Most are expecting a power drop-off from Pence this season as he plays in a pitcher-friendly park over a full season for the first time, but he has three homers in the first seven contests. (Rotoworld)
  • Kevin Slowey was a hard-luck loser after allowing two runs in seven innings Monday against the Braves. The Marlins will likely have a bunch of hard-luck losers this season. Slowey, for instance, has an 0-2 record to go along with his 2.19 ERA. With the way he’s throwing, he’s a viable play in NL-only leagues, particularly in his home starts. His flyball tendencies will lead to bad days in smaller parks. (Rotoworld)
  • Chris Johnson delivered three singles in four at-bats against the Marlins on Monday. The Braves have said they don’t plan to use Evan Gattis at first base, so the position will belong to Johnson for the two weeks that Freddie Freeman is out. It makes him a nice short-term choice in NL-only leagues. (Rotoworld)
  • Brandon Phillips went 2-for-5 with a solo homer and RBI double in Monday’s win over the Cardinals. Phillips’ homer in the sixth cut the Cards’ lead to one at the time, and his bloop double in the ninth put them ahead before the floodgates opened up. Jay Bruce (four hits) and Shin-Soo Choo (two hits, three RBI) also had big days at the dish for the Reds. Phillips is batting .344 with two homers and seven RBI early on this season. (Rotoworld)
  • Ryan Braun went 3-for-4 with two doubles in Monday’s win over the Cubs. After missing the last three games with a neck injury, Braun didn’t show any lingering effects in his return to the lineup. He absolutely crushed an Edwin Jackson fastball in the second inning for an RBI double and added another one late off Carlos Marmol. The Brewers need Braun to stay healthy this season. They’re a drastically different team without him. (Rotoworld)
  • Jim Henderson recorded his first save of the season in Monday’s 7-4 win over the Cubs. The Brewers had a four-run lead, but Henderson had to bail out Brandon Kintzler after he loaded the bases with three straight singles. It’s another sign that John Axford has officially been phased out at closer. Henderson allowed one unearned run before striking out Steve Clevenger and Dave Sappelt. He got Starlin Castro to fly out to right field to end the game. Go ahead and pick him up in all fantasy formats. (Rotoworld)
  • Kenley Jansen has yet to allow a run in three appearances (2.2 innings) this year as he continues to work as a setup man to Brandon League. League has yet to allow a run either, so this arrangement will continue for the foreseeable future. (Rotowire)
  • Mark Melancon notched his first hold of the year Monday, throwing a scoreless eighth inning against the Diamondbacks. He struck out two of the three batters he faced. Melancon is in line for a decent number of holds in 2013 and would be first in line to close if anything happens to Jason Grilli. (Rotowire)
  • Travis Snider went 1-for-3 with a two-run single in his second start of the season Monday. The outfielder will likely get another start Tuesday, with righty Brandon McCarthy on the mound for Arizona. (Rotowire)
  • Reds third baseman Todd Frazier watched his hitting streak to begin the season end at six games Monday, but he was still able to extend his stellar RBI run. Frazier finished 0 for 4 with a walk during Cincinnati’s 13-4 victory at St. Louis, however, he netted his 10th RBI of the season on a bases-loaded walk in the ninth inning. He has now driven in a run during each of his past six games while carrying a .414 bating average and .485 on-base percentage. (CBS Sports)
  • Marlins outfielder Juan Pierre entered Monday’s series opener against the Braves riding a modest three-game hitting streak. He went 4 for 13 (.308) with three runs scored during that stretch. But he could not extend it against Atlanta, going 0 for 3 in the 2-0 loss. Pierre is batting .222 (6 for 27) with no stolen bases. (CBS Sports)
  • Reds outfielder Xavier Paul continued to be productive off the bench Monday against the Cardinals. He pinch-hit in the eighth inning and drove in a run with a single. Paul is 4 for 9 (.444) through six games with a homer and six RBI. (CBS Sports)
  • Michael Wacha, 21, gave up two runs on five hits while walking four over four innings in his season debut at Triple-A Memphis on Sunday. The four walks Sunday matched Wacha’s total over his first 21 professional innings last season. It’s believed that he could be ready to contribute in the big leagues later this season should the need arise in St. Louis, but Wacha will need to fare well in the Pacific Coast League in order to force the issue. (Rotowire)
  • Cardinals prospect Oscar Taveras, who has endured some travel delays, is expected to make his Triple-A debut Monday, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Taveras, who has not appeared in a minor-league game this season, hit .321 with 23 homers and 94 RBI in 124 games at Double-A last season. (CBS Sports)
