Cole Hamels earned his first win of the season after pitching seven innings of one-run ball with just three hits, one walk and 10 strikeouts against the Reds on Saturday.
As if Hamels' last outing wasn't strong enough, he looked even better in this one against the Reds. He's now allowed just two runs over his last 14 innings and has a 21:5 K:BB over these last two starts. This is the Hamels everyone was expecting and though it took a few starts to shake the rust off from his shoulder, he looks like he's back to form. He'll face the hot-hitting Marlins in pitcher-friendly Miami his next time out.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Jake Arrieta shut the Rockies out for four innings on Saturday.
Arrieta had average numbers prior to Saturday's spring training start, but his start against the Rockies showed that he is ready to go. On paper, he isn't the Cubs' ace this season, but he certainly emerged as one of the better starters in the National League. Take Arrieta as a solid number two starter in your fantasy drafts over the next week. Analysis: David Kerr
C.J. Anderson will be the Broncos starting running back entering offseason workouts.
The Broncos have three legitimate starting running backs in Anderson, Montee Ball, and Ronnie Hillman. Given Anderson's success in the latter part of the 2014 season though, it is no surprise that Denver views him as their lead back. He should fit in well to Gary Kubiak's offensive scheme and will vault up fantasy draft boards this summer. Anderson picked up a lot of slack last year while Peyton Manning dealt with a shoulder injury and should be a strong RB1 option this year. Analysis: David Kerr
