Line of the Day: May 16th, 2011

SP Colby Lewis of the Texas Rangers pitched a complete game, five-hitter for his first career shutout in a 4-0 victory over the Chicago White Sox. Lewis struck out seven and walked just one while recording his third career complete game. He's evened his record to 4-4 and dropped his ERA to 3.81 and WHIP to 1.14 on the season.

Line: 9 IP, 5 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 7 K

My fantasy perspective: Lewis seems to have turned things around after a rough start. In his first four starts of the season, he was 1-3 with a 6.95 ERA in 22 innings, giving up 24 hits, 17 ER with a 14:10 K:BB ratio. In his last four starts, he's gone 3-1 with a 1.67 ERA in 32.1 innings, allowing 24 hits, just 6 ER with a 24:4 K:BB ratio. Check your leagues waivers, he's owned in 71.6% of ESPN leagues and 58% of Yahoo! leagues. He should be owned in all formats.
