Starters To Buy

Here are a few starters with ERAs over 4.00 that caught my eye:

  • Kevin Millwood, Rangers.  You'll have to first wait and see if that groin heals up.  But Millwood has not pitched like a guy with a 5.23 ERA and ghastly 1.72 WHIP.  He has solid strikeout, walk, and home run rates in 106 innings.  It's the 12.3 hits per nine innings and .376 BABIP that's killing him.  That should clear up a bit so consider him as a spot starter once he returns.
  • Cha Seung Baek, Padres.  He's an interesting spot start in PETCO.  Baek has a sparkling 3.5 K/BB, showing fine control in 48 innings.  He's keeping the ball in the yard too.  Like Millwood, he has only hits/BABIP to blame for a 4.66 ERA.
  • Gil Meche, Royals.  He gets overlooked because his overall numbers are plain.  However since the beginning of May Meche has a tidy 3.58 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 2.5 K/BB.
  • Sean Gallagher, Athletics.  He's got a 4.20 ERA and 1.36 WHIP, but fine peripherals and good stuff to support it.
