A.J. Burnett coughed up six runs on 10 hits and a walk with five strikeouts over five innings against the Braves on Friday.
After allowing three runs or less in seven straight outings, Burnett fell off the wagon on Friday night surrendering an eight-game high six runs. He is now sitting 6-9 with a 4.08 ERA and 1.36 WHIP through 21 starts with free passes being his worst enemy up to this point (58 BB through 136.2 IP). Although he has struggled with his command up to this point, he is still a serviceable option in deep league settings when on his game, but when he is not fantasy owners better run for the hills. He will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Madison Bumgarner and the Giants on Wednesday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Wilson Ramos went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the Nationals 2-1 win over the Cubs on Monday.
Ramos hit his third home run of the season on Monday to go with a .285 average, 13 runs and 21 RBI. Health has been Ramos’s biggest hindrance so far in his career as he has appeared in more than 100 games just once since he entered the league in 2010 but that has not stopped the production as he has hit 10+ home runs three times since 2011 and boasts a per 162 average of 22 home runs and 87 RBI which would make him one of the top offensive catchers in baseball. Ramos owners should keep their fingers crossed that this is the year he plays a full season as they will likely end up with one of the top catchers in fantasy. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
