Jeff Samardzija fell to 3-3 after allowing seven runs on seven hits and two walks with three strikeouts over 3.2 innings against the Mets on Wednesday.
Shark has had a couple of rough outings since coming over to Oakland, but this one takes the cake. This is that kick right to the fantasy groin. Just a heap of disgusting. So much so that what do you say?This isn't his normal level of production. He will have much better outings than this one. Sometimes you just get thumped. He doe have a rather interesting match-up next week when he faces the Astros in hitter-friendly Minute Maid Park. 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
