With July only a week away, we are finally beginning to see several names being pried off their respective disabled lists.
This bodes well for fantasy owners as the All-Star break approaches, as the Fantasy Baseball season is currently in full swing.
Starting Pitcher to Start
Only a few short weeks ago, fantasy owners around the world were beaming with pride as their little-known stud Dallas Braden walked to the mound for Oakland and tossed his first career perfect game. Nowadays, those same owners are wondering where everything went wrong. It appears as though the tables have turned for the Athletics, as now Braden is stuck in a funk while youngster Trevor Cahill has decided to take command of the starting staff.
Over his first 11 starts, Cahill is boasting a 6-2 record, 3.21 ERA and 42 Ks. Impressed yet? In seven of his last eight starts, Cahill has pitched at least six innings, meaning he’s throwing deeper into games and providing you, the owner, with more points to enjoy. Add on the fact that his 42 Ks are matched by only 21 BBs, and you have the makings of a nice fantasy starter.
Oh, and did I mention that he is only owned in 59 percent of CBS Leagues and only started in 35 percent? Not only is he a fantastic start for all of you owners out there, he’s probably a nice pickup too.
