Texas Rangers right-hander Yu Darvish struggled initially in his first big league start Monday, allowing the light-hitting Seattle Mariners to score five runs over the first two innings. Then the Japan native settled down to throw four scoreless frames. Darvish lacked command early, but fantasy owners shouldn't be concerned after one outing. He'll win a lot and pile on the strikeouts. Buy low, if possible.

• Meanwhile, San Francisco Giants left-hander Barry Zito shut out the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field on Monday! This is why they play the games. Zito, who hadn't tossed a shutout since 2003, allowed four hits and no walks, fanning four. In spring training, he allowed 32 hits and 12 walks in 19 1/3 innings. Sell high. The spring Zito is the real one, and you don't want that one.

Unless defensive prowess matters in your league, Infante isn't much of a fantasy asset; the last time he hit double-digit home runs was 2004.
