Jason Vargas - 3.3 IP, 9 hits, 5 ER, 2 BB, 0 Ks, Loss

Tommy Hanson - 6 IP, 6 hits, 0 ER, 4 BB, 2 Ks, Win

Ross Detwiler - 7 IP, 7 hits, 1 ER, 0 BB, 5 Ks, Win

Chris Capuano - 2 IP, 5 hits, 5 ER, 2 BB, 0 ks, Loss

Nate Schierholtz - 4-19, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 2 runs, 1 SB

Seth Smith - 6-20, 1 RBI, 4 runs

Starting Pitchers

1. Jose Fernandez at Minnesota Twins (4/23)

2. Tony Cingrani vs. Chicago Cubs (4/23)

3. Edwin Jackson at Miami Marlins (4/25)

4. Garrett Richards at Seattle Mariners (4/25)

5. Clayton Richard vs. San Francisco Giants (4/26)

Fernandez and Cingrani are two electric rookies. I doubt that you will be able to find them on your league's waiver wire, but it may be a case where they get picked up on the day before their start and get dropped the day after. Be on the look out. Edwin Jackson looked good in his last start in Milwaukee (6 IP, 1ER), so he should continue his success against the much weaker Marlins. Garrett Richards had a very strong outing against Detroit last week (7 scoreless, 8 Ks). I think that the 24 year old will prove himself yet again in Seattle on Thursday. Clayton Richard was scratched from his last start due to the flu, but before that he had two solid outings. I'll take my chances with him in San Francisco.

Hitters

Vernon Wells

Devin Mesoraco

Juan Francisco

Vernon Wells is back baby! The pinstripes have rejuvenated and if he is still available in your league, go and grab him. The man has 7 hits and 2 homers in his last three games for crying out loud. The Yankees will see four lefties this week, which means that Wells will bat in the two-hole ahead of Robinson Cano four times. Devin Mesoraco is going to see plenty of playing time now that Ryan Hanigan is on the DL. He has been decent this year and currently is batting .259. Juan Francisco has started off the season hot. He has 3 home runs and is batting .292. The Braves begin Week Four in Colorado and the left-handed Francisco will face a couple righties if he gets the opportunity.
