Here are the daily notes for April 12. Included are starting pitchers I like as streamers for April 13, important fantasy baseball notes from games played on April 11, and what's going on with some shaky closer situations.
Kyle Lohse vs. PIT (57 percent Yahoo! 72 percent ESPN)
Jose Quintana vs. CLE (58 percent Yahoo! 91 percent ESPN)
Jason Vargas @ MIN (81 percent Yahoo! 83 percent ESPN)
LaRoche continued his hot start to the season yesterday by going 2-for-4 with two more runs scored. LaRoche is now hitting .361 on the season with 10 runs, two home runs and nine RBIs and in three of his last four games, he's recorded multiple hits.
Tillman was brilliant on Friday night, scattering just three hits and one walk across eight shutout innings to go with six strikeouts. Tillman has now made three starts this season and has an outstanding 0.84 ERA and 0.84 WHIP to go with 15 strikeouts over 21.1 innings.
It's been a miserable start for 2014 for Upton. Upton went 0-for-4 yesterday and is now hitting .135 on the season to go with just one run and a steal. Upton has 15 strikeouts compared to just one walk and it looks like he's picking up right where he left off last season.
Venable was a popular pick heading into 2014 because he was just one of nine players to hit at least 20 home runs and steal at least 20 bases in 2013. Venable hasn't hit a home run or stolen a base yet in 2014 and to make matters even worse, he's hitting just .171.
Burnett lasted just 4.1 miserable innings yesterday and he has now allowed six walks in back-to-back starts. When he left yesterday, he was also experiencing pain in his groin.
Koji Uehara is experiencing some pain in his shoulder, so as a precaution, the Red Sox are going to give him some rest. For the time being, it looks like Edward Mujica will be filling in as Boston's closer, Mujica picked up the save on Friday night.
Jose Veras has officially been relieved of his ninth-inning duties. This is just speculation, but I would imagine that Pedro Strop will be the first guy who gets an opportunity to fill the role.
