Very light day in fantasy baseball but as always, there are some tidbits to discuss.
Michael Pineda: 7 IP 4 H 0 ER 1 BB 9 K with an ERA of 2.45. The Pineda Express continued to chug on with no sign of a letup. Innings caps will enter the discussion soon enough and I still advise you to trade him in non-keeper legues for that reason. I wouldnt blame you though if you cant part with such a talent. The kid is beyond legit as a future star.
Jermeil Weeks: 1/3 with 2 SB's (6 for season) while hitting .321. So far so good for Rickie's little brother. What nice is that there has been no hint of wrist issues.
Chris Capuano: 6 IP 5 H 0 ER 0 BB 7 K with an ERA of 3.99. I said in the spring that Capuano was a deep sleeper as his numbers have been very useful. A few more of these and he will go beyond the deep league only realm.
Tim Lincecum: 7 IP 3 H 0 ER 2 BB 12 K with an ERA of 3.16. The next time Lincecum goes through a stretch of bad starts, just remember thats it nothing but a rough patch. No injuries or nothing since The Freak is indomitable.
Miguel Montero: 1/4 with his 9th HR while hitting .277. Pay close attention to who I recommend to you for catcher next season. Two years running now with hitting it big with under the radar guys.
Daniel Hudson: 7 IP 6 H 3 ER 1 BB 1 K with an ERA of 3.58. Yeah I toouted him too after his rough early patch that was BABIP fueled. The use of advanced stats hits gold again.
Lance Berkman: 2/5 with his 18th HR while hitting .309. This guy is sick. Nothing more to say than that. Best value in fantasy baseball this season.
Chris Carpenter: 7 IP 5 H 1 ER 1 BB 7 K with an ERA of 4.26. He is healthy for now and pitching solidly so enjoy it while it lasts. He is still scary in my book.
