postheadericon ESPINOSA....TAKING OFF!!!

Danny Espinosa – 3 for 4 with 2 home runs and 4 RBI’s and is now 6 for his last 15 with 4 home runs.  As I said before, Espinosa will hit you 20 HRs and bat you 250 and steal you a handful of bases.

Brandon Morrow – 5 IP, 6 ER, 9 K.  While the 9 K’s are very nice, Morrow continues his inconsistent ways and in quickly becoming a matchup only pitcher.  He’s also become a fantastic buy low candidate, hes simply not this bad.

Justin Morneau – Has a pinched nerve in his neck and is expected to linger throughout the season.  I feel sorry for all fantasy owners that drafted him.  After what he did to me last year, I swore I’d never draft him again.

Ryan Zimmerman – Will play in an extended spring training game on Wednesday.  Thank you, Ryan!

Michael Brantley – 3 for 5 with a double and a triple.  Brantley has been extremely consistent all year and should be owned in all formats.  As you all know, I love Brantley.

Matt Holliday – Headed for an MRI and now may need a DL stint.  As I said last week, don’t be surprised when Holliday lands on the DL.

Carlos Marmol - .1 IP 6 ER 0 K.  Marmol plain and simply didn’t have his good stuff on Tuesday.

Brett Lawrie – Hit in the wrist with a pitch Tuesday night and was sent immediately for x-rays.  The results of the x-rays come back with a bruised left wrist and will need a couple days off.  I’m sure we won’t see Lawrie in the majors until sometime next week, after this HBP.

Francisco Liriano – Expected to be activated from the disabled list on June 7th.  Don’t hold your breath, this is Liriano talking, not the Twins.

Edwin Jackson – Said he would be willing to accept a bullpen assignment, even though it wouldn’t make him happy.  Dear Edwin, you are not a good pitcher, accept your bullpen assignment!
