Need some help on back end of my rotation. WHIR 100%

Postby footballisbetter.com » Mon Aug 12, 2013 9:47 am

12 team h2h 5x5 league.

I currently have Medlen and Haren at the back end of my rotation. Wondering if anyone on the WW is a better option for my team.

We start 9 pitchers per week. Here is my lineup as of today:
Pitchers- Bumgardner, A Sanchez, Fister, Latos, Holland, Medlen, K Jensen, Mujica, J Henderson
Bench- Haren, Frieri

WW- Voglesong, D De la Rosa, Nova, Gaudin, H Santiago, Kendrick, Stults, Maholm

Medlen and Haren have been pitching well. If either one slips up, I would pick up Nova.

I would take a long look at Santiago...his K rate seems legit and if he improves his control just a bit he could be an under the radar stud. I would check matchups to see who he's set to pitch against because if he is slated to pitch when the Sox play the Astros and Twins this month I would pick him up.


this is a couple months old but suggests his walk rate could be headed down :

If he drops his walk rate a tad, his K per inning strikeout rate is going to play up nice.



input on this would be appreciated, thanks!

Gaudin over Haren while he's pitching well (Santiago not a bad choice either).
