Yankees | CC Sabathia using changeup

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 06:02:05 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia has started to use his changeup more often, which is something he has gotten away from over the years. During his Cy Young season in 2007, he used it 18.5 percent of the time, and just 15.3 percent of the time last year. He used it 17.8 percent of the time during his first three starts this year. "I'm throwing it as much as I did when I first got here," Sabathia said. "That's something I wanted to get back to. Not overthrow it, but just keep it in the mix. And it has been a good pitch for us."

Nationals | Ian Desmond struggling in the field

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 05:33:01 -0700

Washington Nationals SS Ian Desmond has made seven errors on the young season.

FANTASY TIP: He also made a play deep in the hole Thursday, April 17, and failed to throw the ball to first after his blunders. While this doesn't mean a lot in fantasy, it could earn him a place in the doghouse and time on the pine. 2B/SS Danny Espinosa could be the benefactor.

St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright allowed two hits and three walks while fanning eight in a complete-game shutout Thursday, April 17.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen toes the edge

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 05:14:50 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers CL Kenley Jansen allowed a run and had two runners on before nailing down the 2-1 victory Thursday, April 17. He took the loss earlier in the week, and his ERA sits at 5.00.

FANTASY TIP: We wouldn't say he's in danger of losing his job at all. However, the plights of a closer can take a toll. Jansen has never really failed at this level. It could be mechanical or poor luck.
