postheadericon TUESDAY ROUNDUP

Jacoby Ellsbury – Left Monday’s game with a left knee contusion.  Red Sox are calling him day to day.

Bartolo Colon – 7 IP, 3 ER 7 H.  There’s no arguing Colon has been pitching well, the question is can he sustain it?  Doubtful, but there’s no reason you can’t enjoy the ride while you can.

David Freese – expected to miss 9-12 weeks with his broken hand.  It is now safe to drop him unless you have the room to store him on the DL.

Yovani Gallardo – 5 IP 9 H 5 ER and 7 K as he continues to pitch horribly.  Gallardo struggled with his command issuing 4 walks on the night.  I hate to say this, but it might be time to bench Gallardo until he gets his stuff figured out.

Brandon McCarthy – 6 IP 6 H 4 R 0 ER and caused issues for himself with 2 bad throws that lead to 4 unearned runs.  Not a bad outing versus a very good hitting team, continue to roll McCarthy out there.

Mike Stanton – 3-5 with a triple and home run and now batting .263 on the year.  Hopefully this is the spark Stanton needed to get going.

Kyle Lohse – 6 IP 5 ER 2 K’s raising his ERA to 2.44 on the year.  We all knew his luck was bound to end at some point.  Continue to pitch him until he proves otherwise.

Scott Sizemore – Recalled from AAA Toledo and will be the everyday starting second baseman for the Tigers.  He should be owned in all league formats, think Placido Polanco with a little more pop when owning Sizemore.

Madison Bumgardner – 7 IP 0ER 7 K and has now turned in 3 straight quality starts.  Bumgardner has pitched better than his 0-5 record suggests. I would still play matchups with Bumgardner until he strings together a few more quality starts.

Dallas Braden – Had a setback Monday while playing catch.  Billy Beane described the throwing as “so-so to be kind” and that Braden is heading back to the doctor.  I would cut bait on Braden, it doesn’t look like he is returning anytime soon.
