May 8, 2010

Here’s a look at the unheralded players who played well yesterday.

 

Chris Volstad, Florida Marlins
Volstad, one of yesterday’s streaming recommendations, gave up 2 runs on 4 hits in 7 innings to improve to 3-12 with a 4.12 ERA.

 

Craig Stammen, Washington Nationals
Stammen got a no-decision despite giving up just 1 earned run in 6-2/3 innings. He struck out 8 and lowered his ERA to 5.63.

 

Jamie Moyer, Philadelphia Phillies
The crafty vet had the Braves eating out of his hands. He threw a complete game two-hit shutout to improve to 4-2 with a 4.38 ERA. Moyer had 5 Ks.

 

Starlin Castro, Chicago Cubs
Castro certainly made his presence felt in his debut. He went 2 for 4 with a triple, a HR, and 6 RBIs. He’ll be a hot commodity on the waiver wire.

 

Rod Barajas, New York Mets

Big night for multi-HR games. Buck had two of his own going 2 for 5 with 3 RBIs. He’s hitting .236 with 9 HRs and 17 RBIs.
