Daisuke Matsuzaka will start the second game of Sunday's doubleheader.
Regardless of what you may be thinking or what anyone else tells you, Matsuzaka should not even remotely be considered for use as a spot starter in your fantasy league. Despite a 2.14 ERA right now, he is still having major command issues and walks far too many guys. Between his 7.29 BB/9 and his 4.10 FIP, it's pretty easy to see that his actual ERA is not indicative of the way he's been pitching.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Jake Marisnick was 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored on Thursday night against the Royals.
Jake Marisnick had two hits from the bottom of the order which included a double and a run scored in Houston’s 5 -2 win over Kansas City on Thursday night. His double in the second inning with two outs kept the inning alive and Marisnick scored on a single by Jose Altuve before Yordano Ventura left the game after a rain delay in the second inning. Although Marisnick struggled in the second half, he did finish September/October with a .275 average with three home runs and seven stolen bases. Analysis: Greg Jewett
