Box Score Bits: Sanchez one-hits Giants

Florida Marlins right-hander Anibal Sanchez stymied the San Francisco Giants on Thursday with a one-hitter, walking one and striking out eight. It was his first shutout since his September 2006 no-hitter. Sanchez is owned in 17.4 percent of ESPN standard leagues, despite a 3.33 ERA and a pace for 13 wins and 143 strikeouts.
Outfielder Scott Podsednik made his Los Angeles Dodgers debut, starting in center field and leading off. He was hitless in three at-bats but walked and stole a base. The fact Podsednik's arrival pushed Rafael Furcal down to second in the lineup is interesting, though it doesn't change the fact Manny Ramirez is likely a week or so from coming off the DL. Podsednik is mixed-league worthy until then.
