Michael Brantley will benefit from seeing some bad Twins pitchers.
There are several employable options on the pitching side for tomorrow but no must-starts.
Chris Capuano will face the Padres at Petco.
Mike Minor draws the Marlins and is only 34 percent owned thanks to a couple bad outings.
Felipe Paulino will see the Orioles in his third start since coming off the disabled list. The results have been good to date.
The Rangers face another lefty, which means another start for Craig Gentry.
Jeff Keppinger is available. He’s stealthily crept onto the scene as an everyday player with second and third base eligibility.
This might be the first time there is little news to report on the closer front. It’s been a crazy year.
Addison Reed picked up a save yesterday, so it appears his nightmare outing didn’t lose him the job.
Big day for Christian Friedrich, but the Rockies couldn’t get him the win: 7 IP, 10 K, 1.29 ERA, 1.00 WHIP
Drew Smyly struggled through his outing: 5 IP, 4 K, 7.20 ERA, 1.20 WHIP
Tim Stauffer was hittable: 5 IP, 5 K, 5.40 ERA, 2.00 WHIP
People are starting to figure out that maybe they should own Ryan Doumit. He went 1-for-3 with a home run, one run, two RBI, and a walk.
Brantley failed to get to Carl Pavano with an 0-for-4 evening.
Gentry’s been busy for the Rangers. He went 0-for-2 with a walk last night.
Taylor Green was 1-for-3 with a walk.
Juan Pierre was 0-for-4.
