Welcome back to a soggy Spot Starting from the east coast. A bunch of games were rained out Tuesday so be sure to check back on these probables for updates due to shuffling of rotations.
For games on Thursday May 19th these selected pitchers might be had in your league (less than 50% owned in Yahoo! or ESPN) with percent owned Yahoo/ESPN, (team), and opponent:
Kyle McClellan 44% / 31% (StL) vs. HOU
Fausto Carmona 29% / 27% (CLE) @ CWS
Wade Davis 24% / 53% (TB) @ TOR
Derek Holland 22% / 5% (TEX) @ KC
Chris Narveson 16% / 11% (MIL) @ SD
Tyson Ross 7% / 7% (OAK) vs. MIN
Liván Hernández 5% / 2% (WAS) @ NYM
My Pick: Chris Narveson @ Padres
Alternate: Fausto Carmona @ White Sox
Deep League Special: Tyson Ross vs. Twins
Narveson is serving up grounders and striking out almost a batter per inning – that’s always a recipe for success. Add in his 3.06 FIP and matchup against the worst offense (non-Phillies swoon) in the league (Padres) and you have yourself a great Spot Start.
Ross is coming off his best start of the year and gets to face the woeful Twins offense, worth a flyer in Deep Leagues.

Season Results (my pick only):
8-5, 155.1 IP, 142 H, 56 ER, 136 K, 45 BB, 3.24 ERA, 1.20 WHIP
