Thumbs up

Anthony Rizzo, Cubs: After not hitting a home run in spring — 48 at-bats in Cactus League, 17 for Team Italy — Rizzo homered on his first swing of the season, off Pittsburgh's A.J. Burnett.

Thumbs down

Matt Kemp, Dodgers: Coming off shoulder surgery in October but said to be healthy, Kemp was 0 for 10 in L.A.'s three-game series against San Francisco. He is hitless in his past 26 at-bats against the Giants.

Ex-Mariner of the week

Casey Kotchman, Marlins: After winning the first-base job, Kotchman blew out his left hamstring Wednesday running out a double-play ball. He's on the disabled list.


"Hopefully in a couple weeks or months, I'm not getting asked all these questions about what size shoe I wear." — White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers, not enjoying the attention that comes with replacing A.J. Pierzynski.
