Fantasy MLB Spot Starting: 04.27.11

The pickings were slim yesterday and yet another great start was made by a pitcher on absolutely no one’s radar as Phil Humber pitched a gem against the Yankees taking a no hitter into the 7th inning.  Humber is owned in 1% of Yahoo! leagues and a slim 0.1% of ESPN (basically his dad owns him).  You just never know when a great start will come out of nowhere, but we can look at the match ups and stats and continue to do our best.

For games on Wednesday April 27th 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:

Derek Holland 34% / 23% (TEX) vs. TOR

Anibal Sanchez 33% / 40% (FLA) vs. LAD

Jeremy Guthrie 33% / 17% (BAL) vs. BOS

Josh Tomlin 26% / 27% (CLE) vs. KC

R.A. Dickey 20% / 5% (NYM) vs. WAS

Mark Buehrle 15% / 10% (CWS) @ NYY

Bartolo Colon 8% / 3% (NYY) vs. CWS

Sam LeCure 4% / 3% (CIN) @ MIL

My Pick: Anibal Sanchez vs. Dodgers

Alternate: Josh Tomlin vs. Royals

Deep League Special: Bartolo Colon vs. White Sox

Fantasy MLB Spot Starting: 04.21.11

If I slept through Tuesday, woke up and you told me the Twins and Phillies games were both shutouts, I would certainly would have assumed Roy Halladay and Carl Pavano had good nights, but that’s baseball as they say and that’s why they play 162. For the second straight day my alternate pick (Randy Wolf) turned in an excellent start while my main pick got hit around.

For games on Thursday April 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:

Jeremy Guthrie 39%/32% (BAL) vs. MIN

Kyle Lohse 23%/22% (StL) vs. WAS

Scott Baker 22%/5% (MIN) @ BAL

Josh Tomlin 14%/17% (CLE) @KC

J.A. Happ 14%/6% (HOU) @ NYM

Jeff Niemann 6%/0.4% (TB) vs. CWS

Brandon McCarthy 6%/3% (OAK) @ SEA

My Pick: Scott Baker at Orioles

Alternate: Jeremy Guthrie vs. Twins

Deep League Special: Brandon McCarthy vs. Mariners

2011 Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Gems – American League

 

Don't let this end up being your 3rd Baseman!

This weekly column will focus on guys who are out there to be had for nothing in most leagues that can help your team even if only as a short-term fill in. So if you’re like me and have Evan Longoria, Jason Bay, Brian Matusz and Chase Utley sitting on your DL, these are some names you might have to call to the rescue!

Jeremy Guthrie, SP Baltimore Orioles (40% owned in Yahoo, 29% in ESPN leagues)

Current Stat Line – 1 W/6 K/ 0.00 ERA

While clearly we can not expect his next few starts to go as well or better than his first, Guthrie is a solid starter backed by an improved offense in Baltimore. He may not make Sunday’s start due to a bout with Pneumonia, but beyond that he should be ready to go. We can expect wins in the teens, an ERA under 4 and 125+ strike outs.
