Welcome back to Spot Starting.
For games on Wednesday June 15th 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:
Dillon Gee 48% / 63% (NYM) @ ATL
Kyle McClellan 37% / 23% (StL) @ WAS
Charlie Morton 32% / 28% (PIT) @ HOU
Derek Holland 27% / 13% (TEX) @ NYY
Jake Arrieta 24% / 15% (BAL) @ TOR
Mark Buehrle 18% / 12% (CWS) @ MIN
Travis Wood 16% / 29% (CIN) @ LAD
My Pick: Dillon Gee @ Braves
Alternate: Charlie Morton @ Astros
Deep League Special: none
Going back to the Dillon Gee well again this week, hopefully we don’t fall in. Gee is coming off his best start of the year – 8IP, 1 ER, 5K, 0 BB against the Pirates. The start before that, he blanked the Braves over 7 IP and including last year he has a 1.83 / 1.12 / .224 slash line against Atlanta.
Not liking much more of these match ups especially since they are all on the road (first time I can recall that happening this year). But Morton could be a good play against the Astros as he handled them rather nicely back on May 7th picking up a W in 7 innings of 1 run ball.
Season Results (my pick only):
35 GS, 16-5, 224.1 IP, 195 H, 70 ER, 175 K, 61 BB, 2.81 ERA, 1.14 WHIP
