Fantasy MLB Spot Starting: 06.20.11

Welcome to another week of Spot Starting.  Hope the Dad’s had a great weekend, myself I watched around 10 hours worth Sunday with breaks only for an ice cream run and dinner.  But being a Pujols owner I ended the day with a big stiff drink, ouch.  Let’s see what’s out there on the streaming pitcher front.

For games on Tuesday June 21st 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 35% / % (StL) vs. PHL

Javier Vazquez 24% / % (FLA) vs. LAA

Carl Pavano 23% / % (MIN) @ SF

Mark Buehrle 20% / % (CWS) vs. ChC

Jeremy Guthrie 20% / % (BAL) @ PIT

Travis Wood 15% / % (CIN) vs. NYY

James McDonald 8% / % (PIT) vs. BAL

Jordan Lyles 4% / % (HOU) @ TEX

My Pick: Carl Pavano @ Giants

Alternate: Jordan Lyles @ Rangers

Deep League Special: Lyles

Pavano seems to have turned a corner on his season with 2 CG wins in his last 3 starts, and only 4 ER over his last 25 IP.

Results from Saturday 06.18.11:

Carlos Carrasco – W, 6.1 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 4 K, 1 BB… Carrasco continued his terrific string of starts with another good outing against the Pirates.  Would like to have seen a couple more K’s but hard to be disappointed with this line.

Season Results (my pick only):

39 GS, 17-6, 248.2 IP, 212 H, 4 ER, 195 K, 68 BB, 2.68 ERA, 1.13 WHIP
