Line of the Day: May 21st, 2011

SP Michael Pineda of the Seattle Mariners allowed two hits and struck out nine in seven innings in a 4-0 over the San Diego Padres. He and two relievers combined on a four-hit shutout and struck out a total of 13 batters.

Line: 7 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 9 K; W, QS

My fantasy perspective: Pineda upped his record this season to 6-2 while lowering his ERA to 2.16 ERA and WHIP to 0.94. He's gone at least six innings in all eight of his starts and has record a quality start in seven of those eight. He's only allowed 41 hits in 58.1 innings while striking out 61 and walking just 14. We are witnessing a very special start to the 22 year old rookie's career. Congratulations to you fantasy owners who drafted him in the late rounds or were able to grab him off waivers. This is the kind of player that helps you win fantasy baseball leagues.
