Daily Box Score Review – April 27, 2011

The Orioles
Zach Britton continues to impress as he’s run his record to 4-1 with a 2.84 ERA.  This kid is for real as two of his wins have come against the Rangers and last night versus the Red Sox.  He’s only owned in 56% of ESPN leagues and 47% of Yahoo! leagues.  If you need help with your ratios, this is your man.

The White Sox
Sergio Santos picked up his second save of the season as he converted a two-out save versus the Yankees on Tuesday night.  Santos entered the game with one out in the ninth and became the beneficiary of two outstanding defensive plays by right fielder
Brent Lillibridge to end the game.  Santos is owned in 22% of ESPN leagues and 32% of Yahoo! leagues.  With an ERA of 0.00 and a perfect 2-for-2 in save opportunities, Santos should continue to get the call in the ninth inning going forward as long as he gets the job done.

Juan Pierre was caught stealing for his league leading sixth time.  Many are tied for second with three.

Nationals’ catcher,
Wilson Ramos, went 3-for-4 with two home runs, as he raised his average to .378.  RAmos should definitely be rostered in leagues that start two catchers.

The Cardinals’
Mitchell Boggs blew his first save of the year giving up two runs, one earned, in 1/3 of an inning on Tuesday. 
Jason Motte worked a perfect eighth inning while striking out two and is probably next in line for the closers role.  But I’m enamored with Eduardo Sanchez, who has a 0.00 ERA and a 0.43 WHIP to go along with 12 strikeouts in 7.0 innings.  Sanchez is virtually unowned and makes for a great speculative pickup.

The Astros’
Brett Wallace raised his average to .347 with a 3-for-4 evening but offers little else as he has only one home run, seven RBI and zero stolen bases.

Arizona’s
Ryan Roberts continues to rake as he went 2-for-4 including his fifth home run of the year.  Roberts is eligible at 3B and OF and is available in over 50% of Yahoo! leagues.

Brandon McCarthy welcome to my $#!t list.  After singing McCarthy’s praises last week and thinking that he just may have turned the corner he drops a major clunker on us by giving up seven earned runs on 14 hits in 5.1 innings.
