Fantasy Baseball Weekly Wonders Vol. 5

May 5, 2008

A look back at the past week in baseball to bring you the surprising stars. 

Pitcher
Greg Smith - He didn’t pick up a win, but in his 14 Innings of work he tallied a 1.93 ERA and a 0.79 WHIP.  He racked up 15 Strikeouts for good measure.

Catcher
Dioner Navarro - Tampa Bay’s Navarro went 6 for 17 last week (.353) with a Run, 2 RBIs, and a Walk.  Nothing special, but if you’re hurting at Catcher, at least he won’t destroy your Batting Average.

Corner Infielder
José Bautista - Pittsburgh’s Bautista went 8 for 24 (.333) with 6 Runs, a Double, 3 HRs, 7 RBI, and 2 Walks.  As an added bonus, in Yahoo leagues he qualifies as an OF as well.

Middle Infielder
Mike Fontenot
- I’m going with a Cubbie MI for the second straight week.  Fontenot killed it going 7 for 11 (.636) with 3 Runs, 2 Doubles, a HR, 7 RBI, and 6 Walks. 

Outfielder
Mark Kotsay - Atlanta’s Kotsay has been swinging a mean bat going 9 for 21 (.429) with 4 Runs, 2 Doubles, a HR, 6 RBI, a Walk, and a SB.
