1) Dallas Braden Oak

9.0 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 K, Win and 0.00 ERA

Dallas Braden tossed only the 19th perfect game in major league baseball history on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Braden is only 63 percent owned in most fantasy leagues actually saw his ownership decrease 8.4 percent.

His 8.4 percent drop rate is likely due to losing his last two starts prior to this week’s perfect game.

Braden currently holds a 4-2 record with twenty-eight strike outs and a 3.33 ERA this season.

 

2) Jamie Moyer Phi

9.0 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, Win and 0.00 ERA.

Moyer is the oldest player in major league history to record a shutout.

His ownership stock however didn’t rise with his accomplishment as he is only owned by 3 percent and saw a 1.7 percent increase.

 

3) Jered Weaver LAA

7.1 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, Win and 0.00 ERA

Weaver flirted with a no-hitter until it was broken up by Ken Griffey Jr. in the seventh inning.

Weaver’s stock has gone up considerably since the start of the 2010 season.

He has a 4-1 record, forty-seven strike outs, and a 2.66 ERA for the season.

 

4) Jon Garland SD

7 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, Win and 0.00 ERA.

Garland had a stellar outing making this victory his third straight win.

The San Diego pitcher has a 4-2 record, twenty-five strike outs, and has a 1.71 ERA overall this season

Garland is 56 percent owned and saw a giant jump in ownership with 37 percent increase.

 

5) Brian Burres Pit

7 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, Win and 0.00 ERA,

The Pittsburgh pitcher looks to have earned the fifth spot on the Pirates’ rotation with two impressive outings.

Zero percent ownership is an indication that no one has noticed his recent success. Burres is a risk to pick-up from the free agency due to a high ERA history.

 

 

6) David Price TB

7.2 IP, 3 H, 4 BB, 6 K, Win, and 0.00 ERA

Price’s overall season has been top notch with a 4-1 record, thirty-three strikeouts, and a 1.91 ERA.

8.0 IP, 2 H, 0 BB, 9 K, Win, and 0.00 ERA

Latos has a 2-3 record, twenty-six, and a 4.19 overall this season, but it looks like he is turning it around.

Latos is 52 percent owned and saw a 1.5 percent increase with this week’s production.

 

8) Ubaldo Jimenez Col

7.0 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 4 BB, 5 K, Loss, and 1.29 ERA

This week Jimenez was given a loss despite only allowing two hits and one run. His performance on the mound was as good as any this season regardless of the Rockies inability to provide run support.

There isn’t anyone hotter than Ubaldo Jimenez. In April he has been a highlight reel.

This season he has a 6-1 record, 49 strike outs, and a .093 ERA.

He has been dominant and threw the first no-hitter in Colorado history on April 17th .

 

9) Jon Lester Bos

15 IP, 9 H, 3 ER, 4 BB, 12 K, 2 Wins, AND 1.80 ERA

The Boston hurler put in two starts this week and when the dust settled he appeared to be the only reliable Red Sox starter to date.

Lester put in 15 innings on the hill and looked impressive against the Yankees.

 

10) Adam Wainwright StL

14.0 IP, 9 H, 3 ER, 4 BB, 13 ER, Win, AND 1.93 ERA

Wainwright battled with Cole Hamels last week which resulted with a no-decision after an impressive outing.
