Fantasy Baseball Box Score Breakouts – 7/18/10

Jul 19, 2010

 

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

 

Yunel Escobar, Toronto Blue Jays
I recommended Yunel as a guy to pick up. He didn’t disappoint on Sunday going 3 for 4 with 2 runs, a Grand Slam and 5 RBIs. He’s 6 for 13 since joining the Jays.

 

Jhonny Peralta, Cleveland Indians
Peralta went 1 for 4 with 2 runs, a HR (7) and 3 RBIs (42). He’s hitting .252.

 

Aaron Cook, Colorado Rockies
Cook threw 7 scoreless innings allowing 6 hits with 5 Ks. He improved to 4=5 with a 4.56 ERA.

 

Travis Wood, Cincinnati Reds
Woods wasn’t as close to perfection this time around. In fact he took a loss, but it wasn’t his fault. He gave up 1 run on 3 hits with 6 Ks in 6 innings. He’s 0-1 with a 2.03 ERA in 26-2/3 IP.

 

Jack Cust, Oakland A’s
Cust went 1 for 4 with a HR (5) and 3 RBIs (22). He’s hitting .287.

Vin Mazzaro, Oakland A’s
Mazzaro gave up 1 run in 7-2/3 innings. He struck out 5 while improving to 5-2 with a 3.50 ERA. He’s 3-0 in his last four starts with a 1.93 ERA.

 

Jose Tabata, Pittsburgh Pirates
Tabata went 3 for5 with 2 runs, an RBI, and his 9th SB. He’s hitting .269, and is a good cheap source of stolen bases.

Ronny Cedeno, Pittsburgh Pirates
Cedeno went 4 for 4 with 2 runs and 3 RBIs to raise his average to .243.

 

Chris Denorfia, San Diego Padres
Denorfia went 4 for 4 with 3 runs and a pair of HRs to raise his average to .281.

 

Ike Davis, New York Mets
Ike went 3 for 5 with 2 RBIs (45) to raise his average to .261.

 

Tyler Colvin & Starlin Castro, Chicago Cubs
Colvin went 3 for 5 with 2 runs to raise his average to .270. Castro went 3 for 4 with a run and a SB to improve his average to .294 and extend his modest six game hitting streak.
