Tigers | Justin Verlander keeps up strong work

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 16:04:20 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander was terrific in his outing Wednesday, July 20, versus the Minnesota Twins, but ended up with a no-decision for his efforts. The right-hander worked eight strong innings, surrendering only one run on two hits and two walks. He also recorded nine strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Verlander deserved better here in terms of the outcome, but his counterpart today, Ervin Santana, was equally as effective. Nonetheless, that's now four starts in a row where the former AL Cy Young award winner has allowed two runs or less, while also registering 32 K's over that stretch. He's also 7-2 in his last nine decisions and should be plugged in regularly for most leagues whenever he's on the hill.

Royals | Paulo Orlando out Friday

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 13:05:06 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Paulo Orlando is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 15, against the Detroit Tigers. OF Brett Eibner is in right field and will hit seventh against Tigers SP Justin Verlander.

Fantasy Tip: Orlando doesn't have much pop with his bat (.317-1-18), but with 66 hits in just over 200 at-bats Orlando gives you average. That will help in some leagues as long as Orlando plays. This appears to be a normal off night. As for Eibner, his .304-3-10 line in 19 games may be enough to get him some daily recognition.
