Andy Pettitte, SP, New York Yankees

New York Yankees SP Andy Pettitte
Yanks, roto owners get shot in arm

Forget about him? Most have been hanging on to Pettitte (groin) since his last start, which came in his first after the All-Star break. The southpaw is 11-2 with a 2.88 ERA, a 1.20 WHIP and a 7.00 K/9 in 115 2/3 innings this season. He has finished his rehab stint. His next scheduled start: Sunday, versus the Baltimore Orioles.

Pettitte has been extraordinary this year, but he has also been well above-average in BABIP against him and strand rate. That, coupled with the likelihood that the Yanks may not let him go too deep before the postseason begins, gives him a limited ceiling.

Still, the Yankees have a division to win, and Pettitte is known for his big-game prowess. This late in the race, a pickup like one of the Bombers' top starters could be a difference maker.
