A.J. Burnett allowed three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out eight batters over seven innings against the Marlins on Wednesday.
Although Burnett was not on top of his game on Wednesday, he managed to keep the Phillies within striking distance registering his fourth straight quality start. He is now 5-7 with a 3.89 ERA and 1.34 WHIP through 17 starts, while sitting on an unimpressive 85:47 K:BB rate over 111.0 innings. His most recent production has warranted consideration in all fantasy formats, despite the fact he is sporting a five year-low 6.89 K/9. He will look to keep up the pace when he takes on the Marlins on Monday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Jed Lowrie left Monday's game with a thumb injury. He's going back to Houston Tuesday for an MRI.
In all likelihood Jonathan Villar or Marwin Gonzalez will fill in for Lowrie if he misses extended time, but there's an outside chance the first-place Astros call up uber-prospect Carlos Correa for his first major league taste. Correa is murdering the Texas League (Double-A) to the tune of .375/.429/.719 with four home runs and two stolen bases. He's worth a speculative add in competitive leagues until the situation becomes more clear. Astros GM Jeff Luhnow has hinted that he wouldn't be scared to "lift" Correa straight from Double-A at some point. Analysis: Spencer Silva
