- The high scoring season opening series between the Rockies and Brewers ended Thursday with a 2-1 final because of course it did. 3 solo homeruns provided all the runs in the contest. Nolan Arenado hit his first HR of the season in the 9th inning off of Brewers closer Neftali Feliz to put Colorado ahead for good. Greg Holland pick up his 3rd save of the season and looks like a quality pick up for those needing saves. Keon Broxton was hit in the face by a pitch during the 2nd inning. It was a scary play but he is currently listed as day-to-day.
- Yasiel Puig is looking good at the start of the 2017 season. He hit 2 HR in Thursdays 10-2 win over the Padres. He’s hitting .417 with 3 HR and 5 RBI so far this season.
- The White Sox offense unloaded at the expense of Matthew Boyd and Anibal Sanchez during Chicago’s 11-2 win over the Tigers. The 6-7-8 hitters in particular had a great game. Avisail Garcia was 2-5 with 2 runs scored, Matt Davidson was 2-3 with a triple, a homer, 3 runs, and 3 RBI, and Geovany Soto was 2-4 with 2 homeruns and 4 RBI.
- Matt Harvey looked good in his winning effort over the Braves. He pitched 6.2 innings giving up 3 hits and 2 runs. He only had 4 strikeouts but was still efficient throwing just 77 pitches. With the injury risk surrounding Harvey this season, a positive outing like this is a welcoming sight. Matt Kemp was the sole bright spot in the Braves offense. He hit 2 solo homers, both off of Harvey.
- Marcus Stroman had a solid start to his 2017. He throw 6.1 innings of 1 run ball while getting 5 Ks. Kendrys Morales provided all the offense Stroman and the Blue Jays needed when he smacked a grand slam during the 3rd inning. Toronto would go on to beat the Rays 5-2.
