Brett Gardner scores four times and swiped two bases in Thursday's win over the Red Sox without getting a hit in four at-bats. He did walk three times, though.
Gardner has had his struggles of late as he has just three hits and three walks over his last 21 at-bats and is now batting .241 on the season. The two stolen bases on Thursday were his first since the sixth game of the season and he has only four on the season, so if he is not stealing bases or getting hits on at least a semi-regular basis than you may want to consider trying to find someone else who is.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Jordan Lennerton has been assigned to minor league camp.
Lennerton hit .270 this spring but didn't show much pop in his bat. He had only three extra-base hits in 37 at-bats, but he did manage to drive in eight runs. He hit 10 home runs in Triple-A last season, but a .249 average leaves much to be desired. Fantasy owners should stay away from Lennerton for the time being. Analysis: Colby Conway
Vance Worley will start the season in the bullpen.
The competition for the final spot in the rotation was between Worley and Jeff Locke. Worley's 5.29 spring ERA outperformed Locke's 9.00, but the team wants Worley to be a stable figure in their bullpen. Worley's fantasy value takes a hit as he won't be a starter for a sneaky good Pittsburgh ball club. Analysis: Colby Conway
Update: Blazers have made the Tim Frazier signing official.
The former Penn State player will remain under contract with Portland for the rest of the season. Frazier was selected as the NBA Development League Player of the Week after averaging 20 points, 7.7 assists and 7.7 rebounds per game. However, Frazier won't be worth adding in leagues unless an injury bug would hit Portland. Analysis: Colby Conway
