Fantasy Baseball News & Notes Update: September 11th, 2013

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

What a marvelous season from Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez

Miami shut down Fernandez early this season and the rookie finished 2013 off in style allowing only one run on five hits through seven innings while striking out five Braves. Oh… he also went deep and ticked off a few Atlanta players in the process.  

Fernandez finishes the season 12-6 with a 2.19 ERA and a 187/58 K/BB ratio over 172 2/3 innings. Fernandez is by far the fantasy baseball pick-up of the year and he’ll beat out some pretty good National League rookies in Shelby Miller and Yasiel Puig.




Mike Carp was the hero this time for the Red Sox in their win over the Rays.

The Red Sox outscored the Rays 7-3 in ten innings as they continue to close in on the AL East division title while Tampa Bay is making the American Wild card race very interesting.

Chris Davis drove in RBI 127 and 128 with a double, but it wasn’t enough as his Orioles fell to fourth place in the AL East.


The Yankees are only one game back of the Rays for the second wild card spot while the O’s and Indians are 1 1/2 games back. Don’t look now, but the Kansas City Royals are only two back after a fantastic performance from James Shields. The Royals ace struck out eight Indians over seven innings for the win and finished with probably the best defensive play of the night.

R.A. Dickey ran into a hot Mark Trumbo who had a milestone night on Tuesday.

  Trumbo owns the Jays this year…

  He was at it again last night.



Trumbo owners are enjoying the ride just in time for fantasy baseball playoffs.


Some pretty strong pitching performances around the majors last night.

Anibal Sanchez struck out 10 over 7.1 innings as his Tigers edged the White Sox 1-0. Is Sanchez really the number three for Detroit in the playoffs? He might be the Tigers most consistent pitcher. Lance Lynn also had 10 K’s over six scoreless innings, but finished with a no decision.

Dan Haren with six scoreless innings while fanning eight Mets in the win.

Cliff Lee punched out nine Padres over eight innings picking up his 13th win of the season.

Cole Hamels only has seven wins to show for his stellar play of late, but really him and Lee have been solid most of the year for Philadelphia.





Oh and the A’s won big

18-3 over the Twins. Jed Lowrie led the way with a home run and four RBI.
