Thu, 24 Apr 2014 06:46:18 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke allowed two runs over seven innings and struck out 11 to beat the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday, April 23.

FANTASY TIP: He has 40 strikeouts against 5 walks in 29 1/3 innings. Take notice of his surge.

Brewers | Kyle Lohse business as usual

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 06:43:06 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Kyle Lohse allowed a run on five hits and struck out five in seven innings to beat the San Diego Padres Wednesday, April 23.

FANTASY TIP: Lohse is predominately an underrated fantasy hurler whose low K-rate scares owners away from him. Early on, he has 31 strikeouts in 34 innings to go with this 4-1 record, 2.38 ERA and 1.03 WHIP. His 8.21 K/9 is considerably higher than the 5.66 K/9 he had last year. Shop him and see if you can cash in on that probably unsustainable K-rate.

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 06:32:26 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn is out of the lineup Thursday, April 24.

Twins | Chris Colabello delivering

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 06:28:39 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Chris Colabello drove in four runs Wednesday, April 23. He leads the league with 26 RBIs.

FANTASY TIP: Colabello is a tricky fantasy asset. He's a 30-year-old journeyman that the average fantasy owner knows little about. You could keep him and hope this advanced-age surge is for real or sell high and earn a profit from your waiver claim or low draft pick.

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 06:22:27 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha pitched just four innings in his loss to the New York Mets Wednesday, April 23. It was the shortest he has pitched in his career. Wacha struck out 10, but walked five batters and allowed two runs.

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 06:12:57 -0700
