Kevin Slowey: Diamond Gem

Landis MarksSenior Analyst IJuly 2, 2008

Kevin Slowey is Hot! Slowey is turning it on at the right time for fantasy owners. He has won three of his last four starts with a no decision in a game that the Twins won late.

In his last start he pitched a complete game shutout against the Brewers. In that game he struck out eight while walking none. He threw just 109 pitches 79 of them for strikes. He gave up only three hits while exhibiting remarkable control and command of all pitches.

In his past eight starts he has a 2.72 ERA and a WHIP of 0.98 in 53 innings. His walk to strikeout ratio is 6:1 the best in the majors among starters.

I was able to pick him up as a free about a month ago and he is still available in many of the Yahoo! Fantasy leagues. Search quickly to see if he is available in your league. Slowey
