06.07.11 Box Score Breakdown: Fantasy MLB News and Notes

Lot of rookies playing last night, getting the call, etc. Look for some big-time prospects within the next week or so. Not sure who you should be looking for? Follow Chris (here).

Onto it!

4th and Home Player of the Day: Tim Stauffer – 8 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 8:1…Wow. For what it’s worth, the Rockies’ bats have been garbage.

The Bats:
Dee Gordon
– 3/5, R, SB…In his first MLB start, Gordon yet again flashed his speed. Middle infield help is here.

Matt Kemp – 2/4, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI…Back at it. 17/14 through 62 games. 40/40? Nah.

Adam Jones – 3/4, R, HR, RBI…He’s batting .301 now. Still doesn’t walk enough.

Andrew McCutchen – 1/2, 3 R…Also added two walks as the Bucs’ clean-up hitter.

Kelly Johnson – 2/5, R, HR, 3 RBI…Keeps on rollin’.

Juan Miranda – 4/4, R, HR, RBI…Might be time to pick him up.

Miguel Cairo – 2/4, R, HR, 4 RBI…What? WHAT?

Jorge Posada – 3/3, R, RBI…Teix got plunked in the first and Posada stepped right in. Look for Posada to get a few starts here while Mark recovers.

Paul Konerko – 2/3, R, HR, RBI…No. 14.

Carlos Lee – 2/3, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI…El Caballo raking now with FIVE home runs!

Adam Lind – 1/3, 2 R, HR, 3 RBI…Lind sends another one over the wall. His 10th as he’s now hitting .317. Bounceback!

The Arms:
Rubby de la Rosa
– 5 IP, 4 H, ER, 4:5…He was super shaky, but let’s chalk it up to being his first MLB start. He has abilities, so let’s see how he does next time out.

Chris Jakubauskas – 5 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 5:1…Very nice start. Move along.

Daniel Hudson – 7 IP, 3 H, ER, 7:1…Will be going over him shortly in my “Stars” Review.

Carlos Carrasco – 8.1 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 6:1…Has always had the talent, but he faced a AAA team in this one.

Francisco Liriano – 5 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 7:3…Fresh off the DL!

Brad Hand – 6 IP, H, ER, 6:1…ShaZAM! His MLB debut and he was awesome.

Tommy Hanson – 6 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 6:5…Five walks? Good golly Miss Molly. A bit wild. Maybe that’s why no one could hit him.

Edinson Volquez – 7 IP, 7 H, ER, 5:2…Back from the DL with a new attitude. Few more starts like this and I’d consider him.

Phil Humber – 7.2 IP, 5 H, ER, 5:3…He needs to start getting R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

Shaun Marcum – 6 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 1:4…Strange line, but you’ll take it.

Chris Capuano – 6 IP, 6 H, ER, 5:2…One of Jesse’s favorite sleepers year after year.

Ubaldo Jimenez – 7 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 8:0…Velocity still not back to normal, but he’s still been pitching pretty well. I’d consider buying right now before the velocity comes back and he is dominant.

    I hate Stauffer – I’ve had him on my team off and on but I never get him for the great starts. picture of inconsistency.
