Francisco Rodriguez picked up his league-leading 10th save after throwing a perfect ninth inning with two strikeouts against the Cubs on Friday.
The early season dominance continued in the final frame for the Brewers on Friday night, as Rodriguez improved to 10-for-10 in save opportunities. The Brewers originally intended to move Jim Henderson back into the closer role once he worked out a few issues, but that is not going to happen K-Rod continues to pitch at this high of a level. Through 13.0 innings, Rodriguez has yet to allow an earned run while sporting a 13.85 K/9.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Hector Sanchez left Thursday's game after taking a foul tip to the neck.
We should get a better idea on Friday if this injury is serious or not, but even a brief absence could set Sanchez back in his roster battle with Andrew Susac. Susac is younger, and a better hitter and he could be useful in NL-only or if the Giants decide to play Buster Posey more at first base. Sanchez will never have much fantasy value regardless of role though he would probably be better for San Francisco's pitchers. Analysis: Steve Pimental
Ross Ohlendorf left Thursday's game with tightness in his right groin.
This isn't good news for Ohlendorf, especially after he's pitched so well this spring. Given his success, it seems as though the only way that he will be left off of the Rangers' Opening Day roster is if he is out for an extended period of time or has a setback. He will likely fill a long reliever role for Texas with the chance to make an occasional spot start. Analysis: David Kerr
