Line of the Day: May 30th, 2011

SP Bartolo Colon of the New York Yankees pitched a complete-game four-hit shutout in a 5-0 victory over the Oakland A's. He struck out six and walked none in the first individual shutout by a Yankees pitcher in over two years.

Line: 9 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 K; W, QS, CG, SHO

My fantasy perspective: Colon continues to baffle fantasy baseball owners. With six quality starts in eight games started, he's getting hard to dismiss as a fluke, especially after this latest gem. In those eight starts, he's produced a 3-2 record with a 3.11 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP and 49/12 K/BB ratio over 55 innings pitched.

Owned in just 37.7% of ESPN and 36% of Yahoo! leagues, Colon deserves consideration before his next start on June 5th in Los Angeles against the Angels. Don't wait around too long to make a decision because a complete-game shutout has a way of catching the eye of fantasy owners looking for help on waivers.
