Interleague Baseball, With Jed Lowrie from Boston toward the disabled list, consider replacing it – shortstop Marco Scutaro. For Fangraphs, the 35-year-old has been in contact in 97.1% of hacks – not a bad skill for those who need better batting average. I have no complaints about dangerous Boston training, which will shield plate often. He also owns additional eligibility at second base in most leagues.
Scutaro left 11 of their first 29 in June. Even before his injury, return to the land of Lowrie fall, but probably aggravated by playing through the evils of his shoulder, was tough. If Scutaro does an admirable job filling in, maybe Lowrie moves back to a utility function. Not likely, but worth a shot for the MI-needed, excluding energy, Scutaro could replicate contributions Lowrie. – Tim Heaney
Andrew Miller, once one of the best pitching prospects in baseball, he went back to the majors to start Monday against the Padres. The Red Sox see him as part of their future, but the June 15 opt-out clause in the contract of Miller probably forced his hand.
The performance of the left-hander in Class AAA Pawtucket had no effect, however, Miller was 3-3 with a 2.47 ERA while walking 35 and striking out 61 in 65 2 / 3 innings (12 starts). No back here, but control problems have been the problem for former Tar Heel. However, his walk rate in Pawtucket (4.8 BB / 9) is actually an improvement in the past, and has shown more command of his breaking stuff.
Miller has a good fight in the brothers, so he could see another exit or two, if it proves to be effective, especially with Clay Buchholz (again) a candidate to land on the DL. Tim Wakefield is not exactly a lock to remain in the rotation, either. Miller is a value speculation deep mixed formats, but not great investments. – Keith Hernandez
At first, interleague play would seem to offer major benefits for NL Rotisserie part-time have a little more often. The benefits are sporadic and unpredictable, however. Although the availability of DHF affects their day-to-day operations, Senior Circuit staff people are not building lists on the season with matches against their counterparts in the Junior Circuit road in mind.
The tactic is not without merit for NL products, but should be used with caution. In the mixed league, for example, more than Marcus Thames PT, probably does not excite you. However, you could find an excuse to pick someone like Garrett Jones, who was ruled out because someone does not play every day.
In his last six games (four starts), free-swinging of the Pirates, the slugger is 7-for-16 with one homer and six RBIs. While Jones is still a threat to fertility batting average, still packs the 30-homer power. Some games in the next two weeks give you a legitimate opportunity to be of service.
Gambling extra plate appearances for the sake of them is not always the best move. Identify opportunities to increase class – as an excuse to use Jason Bourgeois Houston in left field and DH Carlos Lee – because that’s when you move slightly to make a difference. -Nicholas Minnix
