UPDATES & NEWS
Tim Lincecum fell to 9-8 after allowing six runs on seven hits and three walks with two strikeouts over 3.1 innings against the Royals at Kauffman Stadium on Sunday.
Lincecum struggles against all teams not beginning with PA- and ending in -DRES. The poor outing raised his season ERA from 4.22 to 4.51. I know some of you got excited when he strung together a couple of decent outings, but until he can show prolonged results, he'll never be more than a fantasy-tease. ANALYST:
Cameron Maybin went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Tuesday’s 7-1 loss to the Mets.
Maybin is seeing plenty of time in center field for the Braves right now, as he is a strong defensive player with exceptional range. At the plate, he has been anything but consistent, going just 4-for-28 over the last eight games. However, Maybin has displayed an unexpected power stroke, as three of those hits have left the yard. With enough at-bats, the fleet-footed 28 year old could have a shot at 15/15 production with regards to homers and steals. Analysis: Nate Miller
