Aug 10, 2010

 

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

 

Brian Matusz, Baltimore Orioles
Matusz got a no-decision despite allowing 1 run on 3 hits in 6 innings. He has allowed 2 runs in 12 innings in his last two starts to lower his ERA to 5.08.

 

Edwin Jackson, Chicago White Sox
Jackson gave up 1 run with 7 Ks in a six-inning no-decision. He has allowed 2 runs with 13 Ks in 13 innings in two starts since being dealt to Chicago, and is 7-10 with a 4.83 ERA on the year.

 

Skip Schumaker, St. Louis Cardinals
Schumaker went 2 for 4 with a Grand Slam to raise his average to .260.

 

Yuniesky Betancourt, Kansas City Royals
Betancourt went 3 for 3 with a HR (9) and 2 RBIs (48) to raise his average to .263.

 

Doug Fister, Seattle Mariners
Fister gave up 1 run with 5 Ks in 6 innings to improve to 4-8 with a 3.86 ERA. He has lost some of his luster, but is still a solid WHIP & ERA option in deep leagues.
