Making his Cardinals debut, A.J. Pierzynski went 3-for-4 with one RBI against the Cubs on Saturday.
Pierzynski was great in his debut, and if can continue to hit well, he'll likely see ample playing time, as the only other option right now at catcher for the Cardinals is Tony Cruz, who has been very ineffective at the plate recently. That being said, Pierzynski isn't worth being rostered in most fantasy leagues, as his .254 average and just four home runs aren't very good. ANALYST: Ben Diamond
Michael Brantley (back) has returned to the Indians' lineup Sunday.
Brantley was out of the lineup as precaution and now seems to be 100 percent healthy. Brantley was one of the most improved players last season, which has greatly increased his fantasy value as some people are drafting him in the second or third round in fantasy drafts. He'll have to have another strong season in order to return value on that high of a draft pick. Analysis: Mark Kaplan
