Kipnis Jumps Ship, Zeid Moved In Pence Trade

Phillies pitcher Josh Zeid was part of the Hunter Pence trade that just went down. After being named the Best Class-A Reliever last year, the Phillies inexplicably moved Zeid to the starting rotation this year in AA. Zeid struggled mightily as a starter and has since been moved back to the bullpen where he belongs. Now that he's on the Astros, I'd say he's got a better shot at making it to The Show.

Pinch hitting, Jason Kipnis was 0-0 with 1 BB against the Royals. This will be my last update for Kipnis, as he has informed the Jewish Sports Review that he is now a practicing Roman Catholic.

Batting 3rd, Ryan Braun was 0-4 against the Astros.

Batting cleanup, Kevin Youkilis was 0-4 against the White Sox.

Batting leadoff, Ian Kinsler was 0-5 against the Blue Jays.
