Mike Trout went 1-for-3 with a home run, four RBI, a run scored and a walk during the Angels' 6-5 win over the White Sox on Saturday.
Let the games begin. If ever there was a need for a big shot to jolt everyone back to reality, it was Trout's grand salami to win the game Saturday. Fantasy owners have continued to panic with regard to Trout's back problems and under-performance this season, but those who stayed the course and understood the ebb and flow of the tides here are likely to start reaping some massive benefits. With the back issues behind him and a nice flash of power, it looks as if he's gearing up to get back to the top of that mountain.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
