Dodgers will move Alex Guerrero's rehab assignment to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The Dodgers are apparently seeing something that everyone else is missing with this move as he goes from Double-A to Triple-A. Guerrero is 1-for-30 at Tulsa in his eight games there but that's good enough to move up the ladder. If he doesn't improve at the higher level, he will likely stay there instead of making it up to the big club at the end of the assignment.

Aledmys Diaz went 1-for-4 with a home run (7) on Thursday night against the Nationals.

Finally there are signs of life out of Diaz, as his average has plummeted 44 points over just the last week of hitless baseball. He now has two hits in his last nine; nothing to write home about, but numbers he can afford considering his average still remains at an incredibly hit .329. He may be a “sell high” candidate of sorts being that he has no proven track record, is beginning to slip offensively, yet still is posting some impressive numbers.

Danny Espinosa went 1-for-3 with a home run (4) on Thursday night against the Cardinals.

In a dreadful season so far, it was encouraging to see Espinosa go deep on Thursday night. The round tripper was his fourth of the year, while his .201 average is not worth owning in any fantasy format. Move along now…

Bryce Harper went 1-for-4 with a home run (12) on Thursday night against the Cardinals.

The home run ended an 0-for-10 slump that the defending MVP had been in, and boy did he ever crush it in style, as it traveled a projected 434 ft and reached the top deck in Nationals Park. Hopefully this bomb is something that can pull Harper out of his prolonged offensive downturn, as his average currently sits at a disappointing .245 for the season. He is not someone that owners can afford to be worried about, so best is to assume that he will pull himself out of this slump going forward.

Mike Leake went seven innings, allowed two runs on seven hits and one walk, while he struck out five on Thursday night against the Nationals.

Despite the losing effort, Leake impressed on Thursday night, as he went seven innings, allowing only two runs, while he struck out five. After a rocky start to the season, Leake has churned out an excellent month of May, tossing four straight starts of two runs or less, three of which were quality starts. With his ERA trending downwards, Leake appears to be a buy now target for a reasonable price without a red flag raising irrational spike in production.
