Clay Buchholz threw a complete-game, three-hit shutout and struck out 12 to beat the Astros 11-0 on Sunday.
Just a spectacular outing for Buchholz. Absolutely spectacular. But let's pump the brakes for a moment here and not get carried away into thinking he's someone he's not. Does he have talent? Yes, of course he does. But let's not forget everything else he's done this season. The outing brought this ERA down to a 5.42 which, if you play fantasy, you know that's not good. His strikeout rate is still middle-of-the-road, he still gives up too many home runs, his command can be very spotty, and when he loses it against a team, which happens regularly, he blows up pretty badly. It was a great outing here, but if you expect to see that from him on even a remotely consistent basis, you're fooling yourself and destined to see your ratios blown to bits.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Rajai Davis said Sunday evening that he doesn't believe his groin injury is serious.
Davis pulled up limp on a single during Sunday's game after having a ridiculous series against the Indians. He stole three bases on Saturday and scored three runs in both games and fantasy owners jumped at the chance to add Davis. However, a problem to the leg area is a major concern for a speed guy like the center-fielder. Don't be surprised to see the Tigers play it safe for a bit and have Anthony Gose fill in for Davis until he is healthy. Analysis: Rob Trayah
Redskins are likely to pick up Robert Griffin III's option for 2016.
The true answer is "They better pick it up". The deal to pick up Griffin cost the Redskins a fortune so it shouldn't be that big of a surprise, even with the troubles he has had, that Washington is picking up the option for next year. He will have another year under Jay Gruden and his system before heading into 2016 so this might be a trade value season for RG3. Analysis: Rob Trayah
