Fantasy Baseball Box Score Breakouts – 5/3/10
Here’s a look at the unheralded players who played well yesterday.
Brett Cecil, Toronto Blue Jays
Cecil, my pick for a streaming option yesterday, chewed up the Indians yesterday going 8 innings allowing 1 run on 1 hit with 10 Ks. He improved to 2-1 with a 2.61 ERA.
David Freese, St. Louis Cardinals
Freese continued his hot streak by going 3 for 5 with a run and 3 RBIs. He’s hitting .358 with 19 RBIs.
Jaime Garcia, St. Louis Cardinals
Garcia is also playing well for the Cards. He gave up 1 run on 3 hits with 6 Ks in 6 innings to improve to 3-1 with a 1.12 ERA.
J.D. Drew, Boston Red Sox
Drew went 4 for 5 with 2 runs and 3 RBIs (17) to raise his average to .247.
Mike Lowell, Boston Red Sox
Lowell continues to outperform Big Papi. He went 4 for 4 with 2 runs and 4 RBIs. He’s hitting .300.
Adrian Beltre, Boston Red Sox
You wouldn’t guess that Beltre was brought in for his glove primarily. After going 2 for 5 with 3 runs, a HR, and 3 RBIs he’s hitting .333 with 13 RBIs.
Austin Jackson, Detroit Tigers
This is getting ridiculous. Jackson went 3 for 5 with a run and an RBI to raise his average to .377.
Wilson Ramos, Minnesota Twins
So he couldn’t hit in the minors. In two games with the Twins he’s hitting .778 after following up a 4 for 4 effort with a 3 for 4 game. Don’t expect even .300 hitting to last.
Potent Middle Relievers:
Nick Masset, Cincinnati Reds: Win, 2 IP, 0 Runs, 3 Ks (22 Ks, 13 IP)
The Philadelphia Police Department spoke loud and clear that they don’t want you rushing the field. A 17-year old Phillies fan was tasered for doing just that. Stay off the field.
