Line of the Day: May 14th, 2011

SP Brad Bergesen of the Baltimore Orioles pitched a complete game, four-hit shutout, beating the Tampa Bay Rays 6-0. It was his fourth career complete game and first career shutout. Baltimore starters recorded consecutive complete games for the first time since July 10 and 11, 2003.

Line: 9 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 5 K; W, QS, CG, SHO

My fantasy perspective: Bergesen is virtually unowned in all leagues and formats, so it makes him virtually useless to fantasy owners at this early stage of the season. If this had been much later in the year, he very well could have been a Saturday afternoon streaming option. Keep an eye on who becomes the odd man out when Brian Matusz returns from the disabled list. It will either be Bergesen or Chris Tillman.
