Dustin McGowan gave up three runs on six hits and four walks with three strikeouts over just four innings against the Twins on Friday.
McGowan reverted back to the pitcher he was during his first start this season as he showed very little command of his pitches and needed to throw 85 (49 strikes) of them just to make it through the four frames. He's shown very little strikeout ability which hinders his fantasy value to begin with, but with limited command as well, his ratios will continue to climb and ruin your fantasy totals. He'll look for a rebound against the Orioles next week, but he is not a recommended starter at all.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Mark Teixeira went 3-for-4 with a solo home run against the Mets on Saturday.
That’s Tex’s eighth home run of the year. He won’t continue to hit home runs at this rate, but it’s not unreasonable to think he can hit 25 or more this year. He has also drawn as many walks as he has strikeouts. And he’s hitting .254 despite a .163 BABIP. That’s mainly because most of the balls he’s hitting are leaving the yard right now, but it’s still encouraging for his batting average going forward. Analysis: Brett Talley
