Happy Friday everyone!
You know the deal. Here’s a portion of my latest two-start pitcher article. To read the full version, click on the link at the bottom of this post.
12-team mixed leagues
Bartolo Colon (vs. ATL, @SD)
The owner of a solid 3.42 ERA and 1.23 WHIP through five games (four starts), Colon has been one of the better No. 5 starters in baseball this season, providing the Mets with quality innings at the back end of their rotation. The 42-year-old can provide a lift to fantasy teams as well, especially when the matchups are favorable, as is the case next week. Heading into Thursday’s games, the Braves rank last in the Majors in OPS, 29th in batting average and are tied for last in runs scored. Meanwhile, the Padres rank 28th in OPS. Colon should be started with confidence in all league formats.
Deeper mixed leagues
Steven Wright (@CHW, @NYY)
Wright’s thin big league track record (30 games, 15 starts) limits his appeal to deeper mixed leagues for now, but a 1.37 ERA to go along with nearly a strikeout per inning through four starts this season is hard to ignore. The 31-year-old righty could continue his impressive early-season performance next week, as the White Sox and Yankees both rank in the bottom third of the Majors in OPS.
