Daily Box Score Review – April 30, 2011

The Phillies’
Domonic Brown, who is available in most leagues, has been fantastic is three minor league games.  Brown is hitting .500 with two homeruns and four RBI.  Brown will spend the weekend in the minors before the Phillies announce their plans for him.  So go ahead and pick him up before the rest of your league figures out what’s going on.

The time to deal Detroit outfielder
Austin Jackson has long passed. So if you’re still rostering him it’s time to look for an alternative and teammate
Brennan Boesch could be your man.  Boesch is hitting .341 with one home run, 13 RBI and two stolen bases in 85 at-bats.  Boesch is available in 46 % of Yahoo!leagues.

Outfield eligible,
Shelley Duncan of the Cleveland Indians, has a modest three game hitting streak as he fills in for the injured
Travis Hafner.  The extent of Hafner’s injury is unknown, but Duncan is hitting .370 on the year with one home run and seven RBI.  Keep Duncan on your radar should Hafner’s injury turn out to be anything serious.

Phillies starter
Vance Worley picked up his first win of the season on Friday going 6.0 innings, giving up two hits and four walks while striking out five.  I know it’s only one game, but with
Joe Blanton possibly out for a while, anyone pitching in front of that Philly offense is going to have value.

He’s not a marquee name and he’s only owned in 4% of Yahoo! leagues, but he’s a name you better know.  Nationals’ pitcher
Jason Marquis is now 3-0 on the season after Friday’s complete game shutout of the Giants.  Marquis allowed only five hits while striking out seven.  Marquis’ ERA sits at 2.62 and he is a player you should ride while this hot streak lasts.

Welcome back Jays’ outfielder
Rajai Davis.  Davis went 1-for-4 with two stolen bases and is only owned in 41% of Yahoo! leagues.

If you haven’t already, it’s probably time to see what the market is willing to pay for
Hanley Ramirez.  Not only is Ramirez off to a terrible start with the bat, hitting .210 with no home runs and only nine RBI, but he’s now been caught on four of his seven stolen base attempts.

It’s not time to panic, but it is time to take notice.  Braves’ closer
Craig Kimbrel blew is second save of the season while setup man
Jonny Venters lowered his ERA to 0.66.  Time to monitor this situation.
