Four notable starting pitchers appear on our most dropped list, and all are available in over half of ESPN leagues.
Give us your thoughts on these players moving forward and whether or not they’re worthy of http://www.officialphiladelphiaflyers.com/Adidas-Samuel-Morin-Jersey a pickup if they’ve been dropped in someone’s league.
I think Stroman has been one of the more overrated fantasy pitchers the past few seasons, as his strikeout rate and WHIP simply do not match up with expectations of those in his ranking class. Stroman was a 15th-round pick in ESPN Average Draft Position (ADP), top 40 among starters, and he did finish last season as the No. 27 starter on the Player Rater, but his numbers were volume driven. That tends to worry me.
Seriously, though, this is just a pitcher with more upside than Craig Conroy Jersey he’s receiving credit for and is being treated as a streaming starter. And no, I wouldn’t use him against the Yankees either, if I could avoid it. In his defense, though, and regarding his rest-of-season prospects, Bieber has among the sharpest control of anyone in baseball, his 3.8 percent walk rate fifth-best among the 178 pitchers with at least six starts and his 39.4 percent called strike rate second-best among that same group. Even better: He’s one of only six pitchers in the past 100 years to walk no more than one batter while making each of his first six big-league appearances in a starting capacity.
Justin Verlander pitched six sharp innings and the Astros took http://www.calgaryflamesofficialonline.com/Adidas-Craig-Conroy-Jersey a 4-0 lead into the ninth before the Athletics tied it.
Stephen Piscotty hit Samuel Morin Youth Jersey a solo homer with two outs in the top of the 11th off Collin McHugh (5-0) to put the A’s ahead, but the Astros staged their own rally.
All-Star closer Blake Treinen (5-2) walked pinch-hitter Josh Reddick, who went to third on a single to right field by rookie Kyle Tucker. With the infield playing in, Tony Kemp hit a grounder to shortstop Marcus Semien. He made a low throw home that Lucroy was unable to handle, allowing Reddick to slide in safely with the tying run.
With one out, Bregman’s dribbler started out foul before spinning into fair territory just a few feet up the first base line. Bregman failed to run initially, so Lucroy scooped up the ball and reached for Bregman as he backpedaled — the bat still in his hand — in an effort to dodge the tag.
But the ball slipped out of Lucroy’s bare hand, pinballed off plate umpire David Rackley and Lucroy, and then fell to the ground.
