Fantasy Baseball: 2 Start Pitchers:Week of 6/27 

The purpose of this article is to secure quality two start pitchers for the upcoming week.  The 50% limit is based on ESPN leagues.  This article is assuming Mon – Sun week.

What I’ll try to do is identify a top 5 starters and a top 5 *possible* sleepers (< 50% owned based on ESPN)

Studs

1.  Jhoulys Chacin (@CHC, KC) – Chacin faces the lowly Cubs, and then the Royals at home setting him up for a strong week. (ERA: 2.71, WHIP: 1.08)

2.  Cliff Lee (BOS, @TOR) – Lee has been lights out, but something about Boston’s offense scares me here, (ERA: 2.87, WHIP: 1.12)

3.  Ian Kennedy (CLE, @OAK) – If he’s not on your team, you may not know how well he’s pitching.  He faces a Choo-less Indians and the A’s. (ERA:  2.90, WHIP: 1.09)

4.  Josh Beckett (@PHI, @HOU) – His prior start in Philly was not pretty, but that was during his struggles in 2010.  Expect two good starts this week (ERA: 1.86, WHIP: .92)

5.  Erik Bedard (, CLE) – He struck out 10 in  his last start.  His ERA is 1.80 and WHIP is .88 in June… he may finally be back (ERA: 2.93, WHIP: 1.14)

Sleepers

1.  Ervin Santana (WAS, LAD) –He’s been pitching better over the month of June with a 3.86 ERA, but his WHIP still high at 1.52.  He has good matchups this week to lower those averages. (ERA: 4.22, WHIP 1.32)

2.  Kevin Correia (@TOR, @WAS) –  He has a 9 win season, and he’s 7-2 on the road facing another two winnable games this week. (ERA: 3.65, WHIP: 1.25)

3.  John Lannan (@LAA, PIT) – In a start on May 21st, Lannan gave up 6 ERs.  Since that start, he’s given up a total of 5 ERs. (ERA: 3.40, WHIP: 1.34)

4.  Jason Marquis (@LAA, PIT) – I know it’s the Mariners, but anytime you take a no hitter into the 6th and shout the opposing team through 8 innings you get on the list, negative points for letting Michael Pineda break up the no hitter, though.  (ERA: 3.53, WHIP: 1.34)

5.  Rick Porcello (NYM, SF) – He’s had a few rough outings, but he’s been plagued by bad luck and cheap hits. Against two weak offenses, expect a bounce back week. (ERA: 4.50, WHIP: 1.43)
