Line of the Day: April 21st, 2011

SP Kyle Lohse of the St. Louis Cardinals pitched a (career-best) two-hit complete game shutout in a 5-0 win over the Washington Nationals. He walked two and struck out six and improved his record to 3-1 on the season with a 2.01 ERA and a 0.73 WHIP.

Line: 9 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 6 K; QS, W

Fantasy perspective: Lohse is pitching himself back into a fantasy-relevant starter. He's pitched at least seven innings in all four starts this season and has recorded a Quality Start in three. He's only owned in 51.4% of ESPN leagues and 37% of Yahoo! leagues. His next scheduled start is at Houston, so now is the time to pick him up. Remember, this is a pitcher that is just two injury-plagued seasons removed from being a 15-game winner who looks healthy now.
