Stock Watch: Buy & Sell Analysis

Last week's Stock Watch recommended starts for Andy Pettitte (6 shutout innings and a win), Eric Stults (quality start and a win) and Lance Lynn (one earned run and a win).  Hopefully the following recommendations for pickups over the last few days of the season are also successful:

  • A.J. Griffin - After rough starts at Detroit and New York, Griffin returns home to an excellent pitchers' park and gets the weak Seattle offense on Friday.  Griffin has 60 strikeouts to 15 walks on the season with a 2.80 ERA and 3.71 SIERA.
  • Dan Straily - Coming off a strong start in Texas, minor league strikeout machine Dan Straily gets Seattle's offense at home on Saturday.  Run, don't walk, to your computer to claim Straily as he is owned in only 9% of Yahoo leagues.
  • Tommy Milone - Notice a pattern?  Also pick up this Oakland starter for his Sunday start against the Mariners.  Milone has been incredible at home with a 2.68 ERA and 1.01 WHIP.
  • Erasmo Ramirez - Facing Milone on Sunday in Oakland, Ramirez has a .99 WHIP in 52 2/3 innings on the season, and is owned in only 3% of Yahoo leagues.
  • Marco Estrada - Owned in 29% of Yahoo leagues, Estrada gets the Astros offense on Saturday and should be claimed where available.  Estrada has struggled in two of his last four starts but still is averaging more than a strikeout per inning and has a 1.17 WHIP.
  • Anibal Sanchez - Dropped in many competitive 12-team mixed leagues after getting beat around in the American League, Sanchez threw a dominant complete game shutout in his last start and gets the Twins on the road on Sunday.
  • Josh Collmenter - For those in deep leagues that are desperate for starting pitchers to close out the season, Collmenter is worth a start on Sunday when he faces a Cubs teams that may lose 100 games this season.  Collmenter got the win and pitched well in his last start in San Francisco.
  • Stephen Drew - Owned in only 20% of Yahoo leagues, Drew has been hot in September with 4 HRs, 12 RBIs and a .295 AVG.  Drew also has a seven-game hitting streak that includes two four-hit games.
  • Andy Dirks - Also enjoying a hot streak with hits in 13 of his last 29 at-bats that includes a home run and four RBIs.  Dirks is starting every day for a Tigers team fighting for the playoffs, has a season batting average well over .300, and is owned in only 9% of Yahoo leagues.
