Line of the Day: April 22nd, 2011

SP Anibal Sanchez of the Florida Marlins pitched eight no-hit innings against the Colorado Rockies before allowing a leadoff single in the ninth to Dexter Fowler. He then recorded the final three outs for the 4-1 victory. Sanchez struck out a career-high nine hitters and was just three outs from his second career no-hitter.

Line: 9 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 9 K; QS, W

Fantasy perspective: Sanchez is widely available in both ESPN leagues (32.1% owned) and Yahoo! leagues (29% owned), so there should be opportunities to pick him up before his next start against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The question is, "Should you?" Over his last two starts, he's racked up 237 pitches, allowing seven hits and seven walks in 15 innings. On the plus side, he's struck out 17 (10.2 K/9 ratio). I won't blame you for streaming him for his next start but be aware there could be some signs of fatigue at this early stage of the season.
