Chris Young- Kansas City Royals
Chris Young is a former relief pitcher who is making a major fantasy impact as a starter for the Royals. Young boasts a .99 WHIP and a sub 3.00 ERA, with four wins to show for it. He’s only pitched 45 2/3 innings on the season, but it doesn’t look like he’ll slow down any time soon. He’s been roughed up in his past two outings, but he should rebound Tuesday night when he takes the hill against the Twins. If you’re looking for a quick steal to bolster your rotation, Young may be your saving grace. The right-hander is owned in only 32% of leagues.
Jaime Garcia- St. Louis Cardinals
Though he has only pitched 27 innings on the season, Garcia has done enough to earn a spot on your fantasy roster. He’s another pitcher with a sub 3.00 ERA and a WHIP of 1.00. He has walked five batters on the season, though all of them came in his first start of the year on May 21. In his following three starts he has struck out 15 batters and walked none. The left-hander is getting hot at a great time for the Cardinals, and quite possibly you. Garcia is available in 31% of leagues.
Mike Pelfrey- Minnesota Twins
Pelfrey’s ERA looks good at 2.28, with a decent WHIP of 1.22. He’s won five games on the season as well. But, his last few starts are what should draw you to Pelfrey. His last time out he went eight innings without allowing a run and only walking one batter. In his four starts total he’s only allowed three earned runs. The upward trend is there on Pelfrey, and it is a perfect time for you to become a part of it. Pelfrey is available in almost 70% of leagues.
