A.J. Burnett allowed three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out eight batters over seven innings against the Marlins on Wednesday.
Although Burnett was not on top of his game on Wednesday, he managed to keep the Phillies within striking distance registering his fourth straight quality start. He is now 5-7 with a 3.89 ERA and 1.34 WHIP through 17 starts, while sitting on an unimpressive 85:47 K:BB rate over 111.0 innings. His most recent production has warranted consideration in all fantasy formats, despite the fact he is sporting a five year-low 6.89 K/9. He will look to keep up the pace when he takes on the Marlins on Monday.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
