Fantasy Baseball News, Notes & Injuries: June 3, 2014 – Henderson Alvarez, Josh Willingham & Brandon Moss


BaseballFantasyMLB

As seen at Fantasy Sports Locker Room, I’ll dive into last night’s Fantasy Baseball News, Notes and Injuries from around the majors – Twitter style. Let’s start off in Miami where Henderson Alvarez pitched another gem of a game.

In order for Alvarez to get a win it seems he has to pitch a complete game shutout as all three of his W’s have come that way. He now has four shutouts in his last seven starts at Marlins Park, including a no-hitter on the last day of the 2013 regular season. Toronto Blue Jays fans will tell you they don’t think about Alvarez with how well Mark Buehrle has been, plus Drew Hutchison. Now as long as Toronto can figure out a way where he only starts one the road.

 

 

 

The numbers for Hutchison at the Roger Centre are ugly as are the numbers from Joe Nathan of late. As for Anibal Sanchez, solid again. Speaking of again…

 

 

Jose Abreu sure looks on his way to 40 home runs. Same with these two…

 

Brandon Moss returned to the A’s lineup last night and went deep, twice!

Moss and Abreu have some work to do because Nelson Cruz is havin’ some kind of season.

 

Josh Hamilton made his return to the Angels lineup and should help fantasy owner, and he was ready!

 

Hamilton hit his third home run of the season, all of which have come at Minute Maid Park. He could have had a fourth if it wasn’t for the ridiculous hill out in center in the first inning. Jon Singleton avoided the hill and cleared the wall in right field in his first major league game. He had two RBI on the night as he forced a walk with the bases loaded in the third. One of C.J. Wilson‘s five walks and five earned runs over 2.2 innings. Yikes! Singleton, though is the real deal according to long-time teammate George Springer. Singleton will definitely provide pop to your Fantasy Baseball lineup. He wasn’t the only player in the Astros and Angels game to make their debut.

 

 

 

Less flash, but Mike Scioscia said before the game Cam Bedrosian has closer stuff and I expect the 29th overall pick in 2010 to eventually land that role with the Angels. It may not be until be next year, but it’ll happen in the near future. The future, though is right now for Eddie Butler.

 

 

 

Nonetheless, this could be the start of something…

In other news, Billy Hamilton picked up two stolen bases, Devin Mesoraco homered again, as did Josh Willingham.

 

 

 

 

 Willingham is on a tear with hits (9) in seven straight games and at least an RBI (10) in six straight. Owned in only 20 percent of Yahoo! leagues. He has four homers over his last six games. Straight feelin’ it! 

 

 

 

 

 

Springer landed American League Rookie of the Month honors while Kolten Wong needed half a month to represent the National League.

And he continues to swing a hot bat…

 

INJURIES

Back stiffness for Mike Trout as two games and an off day weren’t enough for the Angels center fielder.

 

Just when the Halos get Hamilton back…

 

 

 

Again, the key word here for Carlos Gonzalez.
