1. Jason Vargas at Minnesota Twins (4/16)
2. Tommy Hanson at Minnesota Twins (4/17)
I like all four of these guys mainly due to the fact that they will face very weak lineups. The Marlins have scored the least amount of runs in the league (20). The Padres are still without Chase Headley and Carlos Quentin will be serving the bulk of his 8 game suspension this week. Hanson and Vargas should succeed against the Twins in Minnesota. I've always thought that Vargas was underrated. He was a solid pitcher in Seattle and I think that he will be able to lessen the impact of Jered Weaver's elbow injury on the Angels rotation.
A.J. Pollock, OF Arizona Diamondbacks
Schierholtz and Smith, both left-handed batters, will see 5 righties in Week Three. Connor Gillaspie is batting .435 early as he fills in for the injured Gordon Beckham. A.J. Pollock is currently roaming centerfield in Arizona and should be able to take advantage of playing in Yankee Stadium and Coors Field.
