Justin Verlander shutout the Twins over six innings allowing six hits, three walks, and struck out 12 in the no-decision as Joaquin Benoit blew the save and the Twins would eventually go on to win Monday's game 4-3 in 11 innings.
Verlander joined Mickey Lolich as the second hurler in Tigers history to rack up 200 Ks in 5-straight seasons. Verlander hasn't exactly been a star this season with a 13-12 record and 3.56 ERA, but he's struck out 207 batters in 212.1 innings to at least give him some fantasy value. Still, a 1.33 WHIP, for a guy who had been at 1.18 or lowers each of the past four years, it's been a disappointing season.ANALYST: Ray Flowers
Update: Carlos Peguero will be on Boston's major league roster.
With the Red Sox dealing with injuries in their outfield, they are going to give Peguero a chance. The Rangers cut ties with him after he struck out in just under 43-percent of the times he came to the plate in the first 30 games of the season. He is one of those guys who has incredible raw power, but he is boom-or-bust and is going to be a drain on your batting average. However, no playing time is guaranteed, so he should be left off most rosters. Analysis: Colby Conway
Colts signed first-round wide receiver Phillip Dorsett.
Dorsett is known for his excellent speed that he showcased while at the University of Miami. The Indy receiving core is pretty packed, so Dorsett’s expectations for his rookie year should be held in check. Last season for the Hurricanes, he caught 36 passes for 871 yards and 10 touchdowns. He would need an injury or two to become seriously fantasy relevant, seeing that he will be no higher than their number four receiver at the start of this season. Analysis: Colby Conway
