Interleague Report

Week Three

by Jeff Quinton


Please note that in the “DH” column, the player listed is the player that has been added or removed from the lineup, not necessarily the player in the DH slot. For example, if the Phillies move Dominic Brown to DH and put Tony Gwynn Jr. in the OF, then I will list Gwynn Jr. in the “DH” column because he is the player that is gaining at bats.

  • Victor Martinez started two games at catcher and two games at first base. He has now played in five games at first base, making him now eligible at first base in some leagues (he looks to be on pace to hit the magic 20 game mark by season’s end). Nick Castellanos lost two starts when the Tigers moved Miguel Cabrera over to third base to make room for Victor Martinez at first base.
  • Have you ever tried looking up the elevation of Cruces, Cuba? I did, briefly, but I could not find anything. Satisfactory elevation finder I am not. Anyway, Jose Abreu, native of Cruces, played at a high altitude and hit the ball really hard. Consequently, Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko rode the pine.
  • We got this one somehow. With David DeJesus’s ailing foot, Matt Joyce got both starts in the outfield against righties, while Ben Zobrist got a start in left field to make room for Logan Forsythe against the lefty Tony Cingrani.

Har

  • Corey Hart has been relegated to a DH-only role and with Justin Smoak swinging the bat relatively well, I think interleague play will relegate Hart to pinch hitting duties. Logan Morrison will probably get two starts in the outfield against his former club with Michael Saunders getting the other.
