Dee Gordon went 3-for-4 with a triple and one RBI against the Giants on Wednesday and is now batting .404 on the season.
Gordon continued to swing a hot bat on Wednesday night and is now trailing only Chase Utley (.449 BA) and Charlie Blackmon (.442 BA) to lead the league in batting average. To add to his success at the dish, Gordon is 10-for-11 in stolen base chances and as long as he continues to get on base at a high clip (.453 OBP), he is going to be a fantasy stud in 2014.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Manager John Farrell has named Edward Mujica the closer to start the season.
This is a strange decision. Sure, Uehara struggled down the stretch last year, but his final numbers for 2014 were still great. He struck out more than 30 percent of batters faced and walked virtually no one. Mujica, on the other hand, has had a below average strikeout rate for three years running. Don't pay anything of consequence for Mujica, and Uehara is a guy to target if you have deep enough roster settings to hold on to him for a bit. Analysis: Brett Talley
Rougned Odor left Sunday's game with a bruised left shin.
Thankfully, this doesn't sound like anything to be concerned about. Odor had a very respectable debut last year as 20-year old, hitting .259 with nine home runs in just over 400 plate appearances. With a full season of work, he could approach 15 home runs, and his batting average could improve given how frequently he made contact last year. The future is bright for Odor. Analysis: Brett Talley
