Fantasy Baseball News & Notes Update: August 25th, 2013

Locker Room Fantasy Sports takes a look at last night’s fantasy baseball news and notes from around Major League Baseball – Twitter style.


Jake Peavy ruled all fantasy baseball pitchers yesterday with the complete game gem in Los Angeles. His only mistake coming in the 4th – a solo home run to Adrian Gonzalez. Mike Napoli had the line of the night for fantasy baseball hitters (2-4, 1HR, 3RBI, 2R, 1BB). Napoli got it going with a ground rule RBI double in the first and finished it with his 16th home run in the 9th. He has five hits in two games since returning from injury.


A battle of MLB’s best and it was Boston who took two of three from L.A.

Impressive streak from the Dodgers, but Miguel Cabrera makes you forgot about it pretty quickly…

  Miggy only four home runs back of Chris Davis after picking up his 42nd against the Mets.

A much better season for Cabrera than last year and he may not get the Triple Crown. He is on pace for one of the best seasons ever though.


Juiced up or not – the number of walks Barry Bonds faced in 2004 is mind-baffling.

Have a feeling Travis d’Arnaud is going to be pretty good. If you’re in a keeper/dynasty league grab him if you can. The catcher position is very thin and he’s in line to have a bright future. It’s okay Toronto, you have R.A. Dickey!      


Nothing spectacular, but a strong first start back for Roy Halladay who hadn’t pitched since May 5h. Trevor Cloyd was suppose to get the call for Philadelphia yesterday, but he pitched during Saturday’s record-setting, seven- hour, six-minute marathon so Halladay stepped in earlier than expected.

Marco Estrada with seven scoreless innings allowing only one hit while striking out nine Reds for his sixth win of the season. Estrada loves Ks – 21/3 K/BB ratio over his last 24 innings. Owned in only 33 percent of Yahoo! leagues. He’s been known to give up runs in bunches, but there’s no question he’s feelin’ it now.




Nice showing from Jered Weaver, but we’ll leave you with this…


Yeah… that read 2012 of last year… a full year! What a huge fantasy disappointment Josh Hamilton has been this year for owners. The 125 millon dollar man has hit safely in 14 of his last 16 games and that only brought his average up to .235. Heading into this season he had an overall Yahoo! ranking of 24 – his actual rank is 203 in standard leagues.

Does anybody seem him bouncing back next season? Is Hamilton a top 50 fantasy pick next season?
