UPDATES & NEWS
Dillon Gee gave up three runs on six hits and a walk with one strikeout over six innings against the Phillies on Saturday.
After pitching back-to-back shutouts, Gee was unable to keep up the pace on Saturday but did not factor into the decision. He is now the owner of a 3-1 record with a 2.73 ERA and 1.06 WHIP through eight starts while holding down a 33:15 K:BB ratio. Although his strikeouts are not at the level we would like to see, his production in the other categories have made him a solid fantasy option regardless of the format. Gee will be looking to get back to his winning ways when he takes on the Yankees on Thursday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
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
