FANTASY BASEBALL – Reviewing Tuesday’s News, Notes & Injuries – Chris Davis, Sean Doolittle & Alex Guerrero


BaseballFantasyMLB

Let’s take a look at last night’s Fantasy Baseball News and Notes and Injuries from around the majors – Twitter style. There were a few really great fantasy baseball lines of the night and no, they do not involve Alex Guerrero. I’ll get to him, but let’s start with Chris Davis. Fantasy owners all over (myself including) have been waiting for something, like this…

 

 

OK, not quite like that, but we’ll take it! Davis had only three home runs in 104 at-bats coming in. I guess now, it’s your turn Prince Fielder.

Fielder was a late scratch last night with arm weakness. He had missed Saturday and Sunday because of a herniated disc. Edwin Encarnacion owners have certainly forgotten about his slow start to 2014.

 

Encarnacion’s third multi-home run game of the month. As for Adam Wainwright? Well, he was at it again last night…  

 

 

 

Nice to have them both as Julio Teheran also had a game last night…

 

Teheran and Wainwright join Martin Perez, Johnny Cueto and Henderson Alvarez as the only pitchers to have multiple shutouts in 2014.

 

It’s one thing to say it, but to actually do it…

 

 

Masahiro Tanaka dominated the Cubbies in a start in April. He struck out 10 over eight scoreless innings giving up only two hits. Tanaka had seven strikeouts over six last night, but allowed four runs, three earned on eight hits. Never would have guessed his 34 game winning streak would be snapped against the Cubs. Good on em! Still, Tanaka has been impressive.

    The A’s won again. Oh, and Sean Doolittle picked up the save. He’s been fantastic by the way.

 

Doolittle has been dealin’ too; 14 strikeouts over 7.2 innings and 28 over 21 on the season. He has yet to allow a run in May, a span of 9.1 innings. Get him while he’s hot. Like Pianowski said above, he has a great chance to keep the shutdown role in Oakland. The team is off to a phenomenal start and they play in a lot of close ball games.

Injuries

 

Mike Trout had a 2-for-3 night going with 3 RBI before being removed for a pinch runner in the bottom of the 5th. This after legging out an infield single. Trout said he didn’t feel it after that play, but that it had been going on for a couple of days and it wasn’t a big deal. Angels manager Mike Scioscia had Trout serve as the DH last night, he could very well be the DH again Friday. Trout and the Angels will get an off day Thurday, but the centerfielder has yet to miss a game. He came into last night’s contest hitting .166 during the month of May, but picked up his first multi-hit game since April 29th.

Trout leads the American League with 56 strikeouts and has the 19th highest strikeout rate at 27.9 percent, up from 19 percent a year ago. He is due for a day off I’d say.

Could mean a DL stint for Coco Crisp who has missed time already with the same neck soreness.

Cliff Lee owners take a hit, but the weirdest news/injury of the day has to come from inside the Dodgers organization…

 

 

Can’t make this stuff up!

 

 

 

 

Again, you can’t make this stuff up
