Stock Report: Yu Darvish up; injuries down
Justin Grimm: He was called up from Double-A Frisco to make his major league debut last Saturday and came through with a quality start. It was good enough to stay in the rotation for now with all the injuries. He'll start again Monday against Detroit.
Adrian Beltre: The third baseman is really hitting the ball right now. In the last six games, Beltre is 10-for-23 (.435) with two homers and seven RBIs. He's batting .313 on the season.
Scott Feldman: He pitched well Tuesday, but his long-term stock has slowly dipped thanks to struggles and, frankly, poor luck with his defense behind him. Feldman, though he isn't happy about it, heads back to the bullpen now in his long-relief role.
Mike Napoli: The catcher is 1-for-15 since last week's stock report, playing in four of the club's last six games. Napoli is hitting .222 so far in June after batting .221 in May. It's worth pointing out that he started slowly the first few months last year and really turned it on starting July 4. We'll see if he can repeat that in 2012.
