Masahiro Tanaka tossed a four-hit complete game shutout Wednesday without allowing a walk and striking out eight Mets to move to 6-0 on the season.
Tanaka improved to 6-0 following Wednesday night's complete game shutout of the Mets as he continues to take the league by storm. He is now sporting a 2.17 ERA and a 0.91 WHIP through his first eight starts while averaging well over one strikeout per inning pitched (10.24 K/9). As long as he can keep limiting his walks (7 BB) while racking up the strikeouts (66 K) he will only get better as he gets more innings under his belt. The Yankee phenom will be on the hunt for win No. 7 when he takes on the Cubs next Tuesday.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
