MLB Round Weekly Round Up: Week 3

Here are all of the latest developments of Week 3-

Derek Jeter will be out until after the all-star break.

Mike Trout hit his first career grand-slam in a 9 run inning for the Angels. He has 9 RBIs over the past three games, bringing his total up to 11 tied for the team lead.

Matt Harvey out-dueled Stephen Strausburg, 7IP, 7KS, 4 h to Strausburg’s 6IP, 6KS, 4R, 2ER, 5H (2HR). Harvey’s ERA rose to .93.

Bryce Harper had his second multi-home run game of the season already, continuing his hot start with 7HR, .371 BA, and 14 RBIs in 16 games.

Tim Lincecum notched his second win of the season in vintage fashion. Pitching 6 2/3 innings 4Hits, 2BBs, and 8Ks. Scouts said his fastball is down from a few seasons ago, but the change-up is still there.

The Astros continue to succeed in the American League. Just kidding, the Indians scored 19 runs, including eight in the first. Hitting a total of 22 hits everyone had fun. Mark Reynolds went 2-4 with four RBIs, blasting his 7th home run of the season in the first inning (he hit 7th). Jason Giambi, yes you read that correctly, also went 2-4 with 5 RBIs, hitting his second homer of the season and raising his BA to .180. The other former Yankee, Nick Swisher, continued his good start to the season with a 4-7 day with 2 RBIs.

The Dodgers placed Chad Billingsley on the 15 day DL after reporting right elbow soreness. This adds to the injuries of Grienke and Capuano, making the dodgers call up AAA pitcher Stephen Fife.

Don’t look now but the Milwaukee Brewers are the hottest team in baseball.  After starting the season 2-8, the Brew Crew are on a 7-game winning streak led by Ryan Braun (5 HR, 16 RBI, 1.040 OPS) and hot hitting shortstop Jean Segura ( .367 BA).  New closer Jim Henderson (2-0, 1.00 ERA) has filled in nicely for the struggling John Axford, going 4-4 in save opportunities since taking over.

After postponing their game, the Rockies got their eight game winning streak snapped on Sunday. Averaging over 5 runs per game, the team is off to a hot start due to Troy Tulowitski hitting .328 and Carlos Gonzalez .364.
