Hey everyone,

Here’s a sampling of the latest two-start pitcher article. To read the full version, click on the link at the bottom of this post.

12-team mixed leagues

Brett Anderson (@ATL, @NYM)

Anderson might not be available in your 12-team mixed league, but if he is on the waiver wire, you need to grab him immediately. If you already own him, next week is an ideal time to start him. Since the beginning of May, the 27-year-old southpaw has been extremely consistent, allowing more than three runs just once across 14 starts. Anderson sports a 2.92 ERA in eight road starts this season and the Braves and Mets both rank in the bottom third of the Majors in runs scored.

Deeper mixed leagues

Rubby De La Rosa (vs. MIA, vs. MIL)

De La Rosa has not been sharp of late, which is why I’d only consider him in deeper leagues. Prior to his last two outings, however, he had allowed two runs or fewer in four straight starts. While his inconsistency makes him a risky play, the 26-year-old righty does have the benefit of facing a sub-par Marlins lineup followed by a Brewers offense that has been average at best so far this season.

Zach,

Are you alive? haha
I posted this question on the 10th and again on the 14th. I guess with the all star break and all you haven’t had time to answer questions. anyway hopefully me saying that doesn’t offend you. its not my intention.

So I made yet another trade and was wondering what your thoughts are.

I gave up Kemp and J.Fernandez and 5th round pick in 16

I received D.Gordon, L.Cain and a 4th rounder.

I really need speed and I think I’m still good enough on the pitching end of things to take the hit.

My pitching is Kluber, Carrasco, Shields, Lackey, Tanaka and S.Miller with Perkins, Jansen, Kimbrel and Osuna closing

Thank you
Dmenz

I’m alive indeed! And yes, I’ll give that trade my blessing.

Zach
