Pitching In: Week 4

10 Must-Start Pitchers for Week 4

Yu Darvish (@ OAK / @ SEA)
Cliff Lee (@ LAD / @ ARI)
Adam Wainwright (@ NYM / vs. PIT)
Julio Teheran (vs. MIA / vs. CIN)
Hyun-Jin Ryu (vs. PHI / vs. COL)
Mike Leake (@ PIT / @ ATL)
Felix Hernandez (vs. HOU / vs. TEX)
Scott Kazmir (@ HOU)
Tim Hudson (vs. CLE)
Jon Lester (vs. NYY / @ TOR)

Of course last week both Kazmir and A.J. Burnett were cleared to play, and both had good games, scoring 20.5 and 21.5 fantasy points in standard scoring leagues respectively. So I guess the lesson learned is to go with the guys who brought you here unless they’re definitely on the DL to start the week. And hope.

5 Recommended Relievers for Week 4

Francisco Rodriguez (MIL)
Huston Street (SD)
Sergio Romo (SF)
Jonathan Papelbon (PHI)
Craig Kimbrel (ATL)

Papelbon has righted the ship in Philly, picking up yet another save on Sunday night. He is back to being a reliable option at closer for the foreseeable future. And Huston Street is probably pitching the best of any closer this season so far. If you’re lucky enough to have both of them in your fantasy lineup this week you’re in for a treat.
