Tyler Glasnow Tampa Bay Rays

Concerning to put it mildly.

Tyler Glasnow (P) TB - Jun. 14

Glasnow left Monday's start against Chicago due to right elbow inflammation, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: This is concerning news for one of Tampa Bay's top hurlers, though it remains unclear if he'll require a trip to the injured list.

Seven wins in 36 IP. Not quite Suter but close.

Matt Boyd Detroit Tigers

Agree Rotoman, and not just because I own Boyd. 

David Molyneaux NeauxBrainers ()
Brent Suter Milwaukee Brewers

33 2/3 IP 8 Wins.....may not be quite as lucky as it looks. He's the guy Counsell likes to go to when the starter can't get out of the 5th....which outside of Woodruff and Peralta is quite often. Last 5 times he's entered in the 5th he's gotten the W which is over 60% of his Wins. 

83 1/3 IP 14 Wins since 2019.

Brian Goodwin Chicago White Sox

He's only been wearing the new hat for one day.

Matt Boyd Detroit Tigers

Boyd left tonight's game with an injury. Discomfort, which sounds mellow, but let's assume the worst. He's a member of my ADL staff, a delightful bunch, but I'm not rueing the injury. I'm highlighting the Wins rule. The game isn't over, but here's the box score:

How can any Tiger pitcher (and there were a lot of them) more deserve this win than Boyd. He pitched the most innings, got the most outs, struck out the most. Allowed the fewest runs (tied). This shouldn't be No. 1 on baseball's list of things to fix, but why not? It's the easiest.

If the starter doesn't go the full five, but leaves with a lead that his team never relinquishes he should be awarded the Win. Maybe an exception is necessary for a reliever who pitches more innings and also doesn't allow runs. Whatever, give the win to the pitcher who does the most to secure the victory.

Third team of 2021 as he debuts for the Brewers tonight.

Kent Ostby Seadogs
Sergio Alcantara Chicago Cubs

Playing for the Cubs due to injuries. A glove first player though he has hit in the .270 range with about 10 SBs per season during his minor league career.

Now on the Mets.

Kent Ostby Seadogs
Alex Verdugo Boston Red Sox

His stats as of yesterday: 225 AB, 37 R, 27 RBI, 8 HR, 4 SB, .284 BA. $9 in both formats.

Mookie Betts'.................. 217 AB, 39 R, 23 RBI, 7 HR, 6 SB, .253 BA. $7 in 4x4, $8 in 5x5.

Alex Patton Alex
Yulieski Gurriel Houston Astros

Quite a contrast between Yuli's 60 games this year and his 57 games last year.

For the record, as of yesterday's games he's slashing .323/.392/.536.

BABIP:  .318

BB%: 11

SO%: 9

G/L/F: 38/17/44

So, effectively no change in G/L/F. He's hit 10 homers and driven in 47. 

One SB, one CS.

Rotoman was the SWAT today in the ADL...

No danger of anyone overbidding in this thin week. But some real players were bought for real money, which is as it should be.

Bauer's spin rate was down the other day as well leading to similar thoughts.

Joe Ross Washington Nationals

Seven scoreless yesterday.

It looks like Joe has had good BABIP luck, bad HR/FB luck.

His ERA before the stat feed: 5.54.

Kris Bubic Kansas City Royals

Started relying too much on his changeup and the pitch started losing its effectiveness. 

van wilhoite LVW
Shane Bieber Cleveland Indians

Pablo Lopez, Domingo German, Johnny Cueto, Martin Perez, Michael Pineda, Kris Bubic, Bieber... lots of pitchers with very good ERAs at the start of the day had much higher ERAs by the end of it.

Not quite so free with the sticky stuff?

Earning his buck.
