Fantasy Baseball Box Score Breakouts – 8/3/10

Aug 4, 2010

 

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

 

Omar Vizquel, Chicago White Sox
Vizquel went 3 for 3 to raise his average to .293. He’s not a fantasy option at this stage of his career.

 

Jeremy Bonderman, Detroit Tigers
Bonderman gave up 1 run with 5 Ks in 6-2/3 innings to improve to 6-6 with a 4.84 ERA. He’s been knocked around of late so I’d wait until he shows he’s turned it around before I added him.

 

Carlos Ruiz, Philadelphia Phillies
Ruiz went 4 for 5 with 2 runs, a HR, and 2 RBIs to raise his average to .294. He is 14 for 28 in his last six games.

 

Sean Rodriguez, Tampa Bay Rays
Rodriguez went 1 for 2 with a HR, 3 RBIs, and a SB (8) to raise his average to .258.

 

Neil Walker, Pittsburgh Pirates
Walker went 3 for 4 with 4 RBIs. He’s hitting .308 with 30 RBIs.

 

Thomas Diamond, Chicago Cubs
Diamond gave up 3 runs in 6 innings in his MLB debut, but what stood out were the 10 Ks.

 

Angel Sanchez & Chris Johnson, Houston Astros
Sanchez went 4 for 6 with a run and 6 RBIs. He’s hitting .303 with 14 RBIs in 92 ABs. Johnson went 2 for 3 with 2 runs and 3 RBIs. He’s hitting .350 with 26 RBIs in 41 games.

 

Andres Torres &Travis Ishikawa, San Franciso Giants
Torres went 3 for 6 with 2 runs, a HR, and 2 RBIs. He’s hitting .289 with 44 RBIs and is 14 for 31 (.452) in his last seven games. Ishikawa went 3 for 5 with a run and an RBI to raise his average to .311. He doesn’t play enough to warrant fantasy consideration.

 

Potent Middle Relievers
