Welcome back to Spot Starting. Tomorrow, three pitchers who were moved at the deadline are pitching for their new teams, read on to see if any will help your team this week.
For games on Wednesday August3rd 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:
Edwin Jackson 47% / 40% (StL) @ MIL
Dillon Gee 41% / 32% (NYM) vs. FLA
Randy Wolf 25% / 19% (MIL) vs. StL
Carlos Carrasco 17% / 9% (CLE) @ BOS
Charlie Morton 16% / 7% (PIT) vs. ChC
Jason Marquis 13% / 7% (ARI) @ SF
Doug Fister 13% / 4% (DET) vs. TEX
Dontrelle Willis 3% / 1% (CIN) @ HOU
My Pick: Jason Marquis @ Giants
Alternate: Edwin Jackson @ Brewers
Deep League Special: Dontrelle Willis @ Astros
I mentioned in my trade deadline review yesterday, that Doug Fister was one to look out for. I don’t like his history against the Rangers, so maybe next start. But I do like Marquis for the first time this year because he loves to face the Giants especially at AT&T. In 7 career starts there, he is 4-2, 2.61/1.01/.203. In his last start against the Giants on April 29th he threw a 5 hit CG SHO while notching 7 Ks. He has 3 straight quality starts and K’d 9 Astros on July 18th. Results.
Jackson has faced the Brewers twice before and has had success: 1-1, 10K in 12 IP, 3.00/1.33/.214. He pitched very well in his last start which was hi first as a Cardinal.
Season Results (my pick only):
55 GS, 25-11, 342.2 IP, 316 H, 120 ER, 262 K, 91 BB, 3.15 ERA, 1.19 WHIP
