Andy Pettitte, LHP, Yankees (48.1 Percent Owned): The veteran no longer gets much fantasy love, but Pettitte is still pretty consistent—aside from that surprising disaster against the Astros, of all teams, at the end of April. With his next outing due to come against the Mariners, hopefully he'll avoid a similar fate against another light-hitting squad.
Ubaldo Jimenez, RHP, Indians (3.8 Percent Owned): Don't look now, but Jimenez has given up just three earned runs on 10 hits over 17.2 innings, and most importantly, a 20:6 K:BB ratio. Understandable if you don't trust him, but don't overlook either.
Ryan Doumit, C/OF, Twins (16.3 Percent Owned): Doumit's season stats still don't look pretty, especially that .222 BA, but he's hit all three of his homers, driven in seven of his 15 RBI and scored seven of his 15 runs in his past six games. If you need a hot catcher-eligible hitter, you could do worse.
John Lackey, RHP, Red Sox (7.9 Percent Owned): Leaving his first start of 2013 early because of a strained biceps after missing all of 2012 with TJ surgery, Lackey has been all but forgotten about by fantasy owners, despite a 2.82 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 9.7 K/9.
Scott Kazmir, LHP, Indians (9.0 Percent Owned): It's been an incredibly long road back for Kazmir (pictured), but the southpaw has regained his fastball (now back in the low-90s) and has been strong each of his past three outings, culminating in Thursday's win over the hot-hitting A's in which he whiffed 10 and allowed just one earned run over six frames.
Jose Veras, RHP, Astros (40.3 Percent Owned): Veras started off poorly, which is why his ERA is still an unsightly 4.50, but that 1.14 WHIP is fine, he's struck out 16 in 14 innings and yes, the Astros can offer the occasional save opp, as Veras' four saves prove.
Koji Uehara, RHP, Red Sox (13.8 Percent Owned): Without both Andrew Bailey (on the DL) and Joel Hanrahan (out for season), the Sox are expected to turn to Junichi Tazawa to close for now, but Uehara could sneak into the mix. Even if he doesn't, his 2.45 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 12.3 K/9 make him worth rostering.
David Hernandez, RHP, Diamondbacks (14.9 Percent Owned): Similar to Uehara, Hernandez is behind Heath Bell in the pecking order while J.J. Putz is on the shelf, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Hernandez get the next save chance in the desert after Bell blew the save Sunday.
Will Venable, OF, Padres (5.8 Percent Owned): Often ignored because he doesn't play every day, Venable is more valuable in deep leagues or NL-only formats, but he's tallied three homers and four swipes over his past nine games. A 15-homer, 25-steal campaign is certainly possible.
Scott Feldman, RHP, Cubs (24.1 Percent Owned): Admittedly, it feels a little icky to recommend Feldman, but the veteran has been pretty great over his past five: 1.60 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, 29:10 K:BB over 33.2 IP. Don't expect it to last, but consider him if you need a spot starter.
Roberto Hernandez, RHP, Rays (9.1 Percent Owned): The Artist Formerly Known As Fausto owns a 4.43 ERA, but after his third quality start—and second win—of the season Sunday against the Padres, Hernandez has a 1.24 WHIP and a surprising 8.6 K/9. Looks like another Rays reclamation project success.
Hector Santiago, LHP, White Sox (3.9 Percent Owned): You may remember Santiago from his failure to hang onto the closer role as a rookie last year, but what you might not have realized is the 25-year-old is actually a pretty good starter. After a successful four-start stint last September, Santiago has looked strong his past two turns since rejoining the rotation after Gavin Floyd went down for the year.
Nick Franklin, SS, Mariners (0.0 Percent Owned): At some point, the lack of production from Seattle shortstops—Brendan Ryan and Robert Andino have combined to post a triple-slash of .112/.194/.112—has to lead to a change. Franklin, a 22-year-old switch-hitter, is hitting .349 with four homers, 16 RBI, five steals and a 16:23 K:BB at Triple-A. Memo to Mariners management: Please, stop subjecting us to this madness. Sincerely, baseball.
