05.26.11 Box Score Breakdown: Fantasy MLB News and Notes

Not a whole lot of games, but enough. Can’t believe the Reds and Phillies had to play a day game today. Killer!

Onto it…

4th and Home Player of the Day: Chase Utley – 1/5, R, HR, RBI…Had to be Chase. After a very long off-season, Utley hits his first home run of 2011. Owners rejoice!

The Bats:
Raul Ibanez
– 2/5, R, HR, 3 RBI…Despite the 1/8 night on Wednesday/Thursday, Ibanez has been heating up.

Jay Bruce – 2/4, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI…Number 14 and is now two up on Braun and Kemp.

Nolan Reimold – 4/4, 2 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI…One of my favorite prospects who could not put it all together. What a nice game. Terrible AAA year, but he’s been decent in a handful of games in Balti this year.

Carl Crawford – 4/5, 2 R, 3 RBI…B2B 4-hit games and he’s now up to .244 (.333 in May).

Mike Morse – 1

The Arms:
Carlos Zambrano
– 6 IP, 6 H, ER, 5:2…Big Z had a monster day at the plate too going 3/3. Now batting .375!

Alfredo Aceves – 6 IP, 5 H, ER, 6:2…Ex-Yank with another decent start. Should you rush to the wire? Eh. Will get plenty of run support though!

Anibal Sanchez – SHO, 5 H, 8:2…Figures. “That’s all I have to say about that.”

Ryan Vogelsong – 8 IP, 8 H, ER, 3:1…One bad start. Other than that he’s been solid.

Brett Anderson – 8 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 4:3…Solid. Solid! 2.84/1.18.

Phil Humber – 7.2 IP, 6 H, ER, 3:1…A pleasant surprise thus far, Humber should be picked up in all leagues at this point. The curse of the Mets…
