Player Notes

  • Alex Cobb dealing with elbow ligament tear?
    Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times speculates that Alex Cobb has a partial elbow ligament tear.

    Advice: It's important to note that the Rays have not made any sort of announcement on Cobb's status, so Topkin categorized this as "informed speculation" after his recent setback and a new MRI. The belief is that the Rays will wait to see how he responds to rest and treatment, but if Topkin is correct, Tommy John surgery could very well be in his future. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Blanton has May 15 opt-out with Royals
    Joe Blanton has a May 15 opt-out in his minor league contract with the Royals.

    Advice: Tim Dierkes of MLB Trade Rumors reports that Blanton has turned down offers from Asian clubs over the past few weeks and wants to return to MLB. The 34-year-old owns a 3.71 ERA and 20/7 K/BB ratio in 26 2/3 innings over four starts and one relief appearance with the Royals' Triple-A affiliate. He didn't pitch in the majors last year.

  • Pagan's RBI single proves enough for Giants
    Angel Pagan's RBI single in the third inning proved to be the only run the Giants would need in Monday's victory against the Padres.

    Advice: One run was enough with the way Madison Bumgarner pitched for the Giants. They gave him two. Pagan came to the plate in the third inning with runners on first and second and no outs, serving a Tyson Ross offering to left-center to plate the first run of the game. The veteran outfielder has hit safely in nine out of his last 10 games and is now hitting .350/.373/.447 with eight RBI in 110 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodney gives up a HR but still gets the save
    Fernando Rodney allowed a solo home run but still managed to close out the Mariners' win over the Angels on Monday.

    Advice: Rodney allowed a one-out solo home run to David Freese to bring the score to 3-2. He got Johnny Giavotella to line out, then issued a walk to Matt Joyce. Collin Cowgill pinch-ran, but was caught stealing at second base to end the game. As usual, a Rodney save opportunity provided lots of drama. He's 8-for-9 in save chances this season despite a 5.56 ERA and an 11/7 K/BB ratio in 11 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com

  • Martinez whipped for seven runs in 3 2/3 IP
    Carlos Martinez lucked into a no-decision after giving up seven runs in 3 2/3 innings as the Cardinals held off the Cubs on Monday.

    Advice: Martinez walked three of the first four batters he faced to open the game, then watched as the Cubs plated five runs in four consecutive singles. Anthony Rizzo added a solo home run in the second and Miguel Montero brought in the Cubs' seventh run with a double in the fourth, chasing Martinez from the game. Overall, he gave up nine hits, walked four, and struck out four. Martinez had been brilliant in his first four starts, so treat Monday's outing as an outlier. He still has a 3.64 ERA with a 1.35 WHIP and a 28/14 K/BB ratio in 29 2/3 innings. Martinez will look for redemption over the weekend when he takes on the Pirates in Pittsburgh. Rotoworld.com
