Line of the Day: April 23rd, 2011

SP Daisuke Matsuzaka of the Boston Red Sox pitched eight innings of one-hit ball, striking out none and walking three, in a 5-0 win over the Los Angeles Angels. He's now pitched back-to-back one-hitters.

Line: 8 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 9 K

Fantasy perspective: Matsuzaka started the 2011 season miserably, managing only a total of seven innings in his first two starts, allowing 14 hits and 10 earned runs, walking five and only striking out four. In his last two starts spanning 15 innings, Dice-K has allowed just two hits and no runs with 12 strike outs and four walks. It's hard to imaging what you'll get out of him in his next start against Seattle, but that might be a great team for him to continue his current groove. He's only 4.8% owned in ESPN leagues and 14% owned in Yahoo! leagues. Good luck.
