2011 Fantasy Baseball Daily Fix: Brett Anderson Done For The Season?
There is a reason Albert Pujols is drafted first every year. Pujols homered for the 4th straight game for his 14th on the season.
The Dodgers top pitching prospect Rubby De La Rosa made his first big league start for the Blue Crew. In his first win as a starter, De La Rosa threw five solid innings giving up one earned run and striking out 4. The WHIP was at 1.80 which is high but he was facing the feared Phillies lineup. With all the injuries to the bullpen, even if he does not do well in the rotation he seems to be in the big leagues clubs plans for the near future.
Francisco Liriano returned from the DL and had a solid outing pitching 5 innings giving up an unearned run and compiled 7 strikeouts. Probably the most encouraging sign of the outing was the 1.20 WHIP giving up three hits and three walks in his five innings.
Vernon Wells returned from his groin injury Tuesday and went 0-3. Hopefully a now healthy Wells can turn his first season with the Halos around.
In his return to the big leagues Edinson Volquez pitching 7 innings giving up one earned run and 5 strikeouts. Proceed with caution as his start was against the Cubs.
Paul Konerko and Carlos Quentin homered Tuesday. These two have helped keep the White Sox afloat this year as Adam Dunn and Alex Rios continue to have extreme struggles.
I cannot for the life of me figure out how Doug Davis is still in the big leagues.
Austin Jackson has been hitting better of late and with 3 hits Tuesday has gotten his batting average up to .247. Keep an eye on him, if he continues to hit he is a solid fantasy option.
Adam Lind continues to swing a hot bat. Recently off the DL, Lind, went 1-3 with a home run and 3 RBI.
Tim Stauffer had 8 strikeouts in 8 innings against the Rockies.
B.J. Upton continued his dominance over Dan Haren. Going into Tuesdays game Upton was hitting .348 against Haren and took the Angels’ righty deep again last night.
