One day after it was announced that uber-prospect Bryce Harper was being called up by WAS, LAA decided to promote a top prospect of its own, 20-year-old Mike Trout (OF, LAA). Unlike Harper, Trout already has a taste of MLB experience, posting a .256 xBA, 116 PX and 96 Spd in 123 ABs in 2011, laying the seeds for would could become a potentially lethal power/speed combo.

Shoulder soreness will reportedly land Ryan Zimmerman (3B, WAS) on the 15-day DL Saturday, with WAS recalling Bryce Harper (OF, WAS) from Triple-A Syracuse. Zimmerman has been sidelined since April 21, and is seeing a specialist for further examination and treatment. No timetable is yet set for his return. Chad Tracy (3B/1B, WAS), Steve Lombardozzi (IF, WAS) and Mark DeRosa (3B/OF, WAS) are likely to continue sharing 3B PT in Zimmerman's absence.

Lance Lynn (RHP, STL) has an ERA of 1.33 with 24 Ks and 6 BBs through his first four starts. Over that same period of time, he has thrown PQS 5-4-4-5. This has eased the loss of Chris Carpenter (RHP, STL) to injury and so far validated management's decision not to acquire Roy Oswalt (RHP). Do Lynn's skills support his torrid start, and how secure is his spot in the STL rotation?

[FREE] After leaving the April 23 game following a collision with the outfield wall, Jason Bay (OF, NYM) has landed on the disabled list with a non-displaced rib fracture.

Marlon Byrd (OF, BOS) was traded to the Red Sox on April 21st for a team ravaged by injuries to their outfield. What can BOS expect from Byrd and who gets the PT left in CHI? Also, Michael Pineda (RHP, NYY) was shut down after just 15 pitches in his first rehab start. What does this mean for the his chances of cracking the rotation this season with Andy Pettitte (LHP, NYY) close to returning.?

B.J. Upton (OF, TAM) returned to action Friday, activated from the DL following a lengthy minor-league rehab assignment. Upton has been sidelined with back soreness resulting from a mid-March Grapefruit League OF collision with teammate Desmond Jennings. It is unclear whether Upton's running game, a significant component of his value, will be limited by the injury.
