James Loney went 1-for-4 with a solo home run against the Mariners on Saturday.
Loney has been running a little hot and cold at the plate lately, but seems to be on a little bit of an upswing lately, hitting safely in five of his last eight games, the home run and three multi-hit performances in that span. He'll always be a last-resort type of first baseman in fantasy but with a .285 average and .345 OBP, he's not the worst thing in the world.ANALYST: Howard Bender
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
