Fantasy Baseball Players of the Day – 5/9
Friday, May 9th
There was no clear-cut star at the plate, but I’ll give the honors to Jimmy Rollins, who returned from the DL to go 3 for 5 with a Run, a Double, a HR, and 3 RBI. Ivan Rodriguez, Brian McCann, Brandon Boggs (3 RBI), Garrett Atkins, Emmanuel Burriss, and Lance Berkman also had 3 hits each. Freddy Sanchez, Aubrey Huff, Alex Gordon, and Luis Gonzalez each drove in 3 Runs.

Sabathia threw 7 Innings allowing 1 Run while striking out 9. He’s still 2-5, but he’s getting better. Ted Lilly (3-4) allowed 1 Run on 3 Hits in 7 Innings with 10 Ks to outduel Dan Haren (4-2), who allowed 2 Runs in 7 Innings. Kenny Rogers allowed 2 Runs in 6 Innings to move to 3-3 on the year.
