Line of the Day: June 11th, 2011

SP Scott Baker of the Minnesota Twins allowed five hits and one run in a complete game victory over the Texas Rangers. It was his fourth career complete game. He also struck out seven and walked none and threw 80 of his 112 pitches for strikes.

Line: 9 IP, 5 H, 1ER, 0 BB, 7 K; W, QS, CG

My fantasy perspective: Positively, Baker's ERA (3.55), WHIP (1.22) and K/9 (8.4) are all better than his career averages. Negatively, his BB/9 (2.5) and HR/9 (1.3) are slight above his career norms. Nothing says he can't be the 12-15 win pitcher he's shown to be in the past. The question is whether the Twins as a team can get back to their winning ways.
