Tigers | Jose Valverde has first save
Detroit Tigers RP Jose Valverde recorded his first save with the team against the Kansas City Royals Wednesday, April 24, and he was hitting 95 mph on the radar gun with his fastball. "I've caught him for three years," C Alex Avila said. "I've caught him where his ball hasn't had much movement, and I've caught him in years past when he's had a little bit of sink, a little bit of cut. Today it looked like he was able to command both, and was able to go to both sides of the plate."
Fantasy Tip: Scouting reports on Valverde out of Florida about his increased velocity appear to be true. This is music to Valverde's owner's ears. He also looks to be slimmer. He should now be owned in all leagues, and Joaquin Benoit can be dropped in mixed leagues.
