Hey everyone,

You know the drill by now. Here’s a portion of my latest two-start pitcher article. For the complete version, click on the link at the bottom of this post. Stats are as of Friday.

Kendall Graveman


Kendall Graveman (vs. COL, vs. SEA)

Graveman’s strong performance this spring earned him a spot in the A’s opening day starting rotation, but his April struggles resulted in a demotion to the Minors. Since being recalled, however, the 24-year-old righty has registered six quality starts in seven tries, and he’s been particularly sharp of late, pitching to a 2.31 ERA through five June starts. Next week’s opponents, the Mariners and Rockies, rank 25th and 28th respectively in the Majors in runs scored on the road.


Nathan Karns (vs. CLE, @NYY)

The matchup on the road against the Yankees would scare me off from Karns in 12-team mixed leagues, but in deeper formats, I think he’s worth the risk for this two-start week. Karns still needs to learn how to pitch deeper into games, as he’s averaging only 5 2/3 innings per start. On the whole, however, his first full big league season has been an overwhelming success. Plus, the Indians offense has been quiet lately, with Cleveland ranking 14th in the AL in runs scored this month.

thinking of offering Polanco for K Jansen fair offer? what is your take on Carlos Santana is he worth holding

It’s a fair offer, though I’d prefer Jansen. And yes, Santana is worth holding onto. The AVG has been disappointing but a hot stretch could easily get him back on pace for a 20-85 type season.


Holt or E Escobar(Minn) for MI position? 12 team league head to head

It’s close but I’d lean towards Holt due to the higher AVG.
