I was down on Giancarlo Stanton entering 2014, as I was nervous about his season long health -- and I still am -- and the ineptitude of the lineup surrounding him. After knocking in just 148 runs in the last two seasons (despite hitting 61 home runs). I feared he may be a one-cat contributor. Stanton brought his RBI total up to a league-leading 16 on Saturday night though, and he looks absolutely dialed in at the plate.

Melky Cabrera just keeps getting it done for fantasy owners; he went 2-for-6 on Saturday with another stolen base and has now gotten a hit in all 12 games this season. Melky is now hitting .327 on the season to go with six runs, four home runs, five RBI and two steals.

Chase Utley is currently off to the best start of his very illustrious career. Utley collected two more hits Saturday night to bring his season average all the way up to .472; he's had a hit in every game this season, and six of his nine games have been of the multi-hit variety. Utley has six runs, two home runs, and nine RBI to go with that sparkling average.

Chase Cosart looked sharp Saturday night against the Texas Rangers, keeping them to three runs on just six hits and two walks over seven innings while striking out eight. Two of Cosart's three starts have now yielded positive results, and there's plenty of talent in his arm. In the very deepest of leagues, and in AL-only leagues, he's worth a roster spot, but in 12-team leagues or shallower, he's just a guy you're going to want to keep an eye on.

Jered Weaver was all over the place Saturday night against the New York Mets, walking four batters and giving up four earned runs before exiting in the seventh inning. Weaver has pitched poorly in all three of his starts so far, and early on, this looks like the season where the wheels will fall off.

Justin Masterson allowed five earned runs for the second consecutive start on Saturday, and it's also the second start in a row in which he wasn't able to make it past the fifth inning. Masterson now has a 4.22 ERA to go with a 1.31 WHIP, and he's allowed 14 hits, 10 earned runs and eight walks in 8.1 innings.

Closer Watch: Houston Astros

Anthony Bass got his second save of the season Saturday night, on a night in which neither Chad Qualls nor Josh Fields pitched. I have absolutely no idea what to make of this situation, and it's one that I would avoid at all costs. I would still prefer Fields or Qualls if I was hunting for saves, but this situation is an absolute dumpster fire.

Closer Watch: New York Yankees

Shawn Kelley rebounded nicely from his previous outing to pick up the save for the New York Yankees in a clean inning. The Yankees' closer job is his until David Robertson is ready to reclaim it.

On Apr. 13, 1963…

Cincinnati Reds second baseman Pete Rose hit a triple off of Bob Friend to collect his first major league hit; he had gone hitless in his first 11 at bats.
