Ryan Dempster struggled in Friday's loss to the Twins, surrendering two runs on five hits over 3 2/3 innings.

On the bright side, he did display good command on the evening, issuing zero free passes while fanning two. He's yet to walk a batter in 8 2/3 innings this spring, and his velocity has been right around his career norm. His struggles as a member of the Rangers in 2012 could depress his value in fantasy drafts, making Dempster a nice potential value in the middle rounds.
