Late small post today because I fell asleep at my computer last night and never wrote this up. Want to get it out as quick as possible so people do have a chance to see it and update their rosters before games start at 1:10.
Both Worley and Karstens have been great to start this Week 14. 14 Innings in the book already with just a solo home run keeping them from being scoreless. Two wins in two starts also never hurt anyone.
Wednesday starter coming up....
Wednesday's Starter Recommendation - Jason Vargas - Seattle Mariners at Oakland Athletics - 3:35 PM ET - 34.1% Owned in ESPN Leagues
I could basically just copy and paste what I wrote for Vargas in his last outing, just substituting the Athletics for the Padres. Vargas has been quietly fantasy useful for a while now, and is a no brainer start against poor opposition like the Athletics. He's going to get to play in the pitcher friendly confines of the Coliseum, and shouldn't have a problem mowing down the As. He is coming off a complete game shut out against the Padres so there is a bit of a fatigue worry, but considering it's going to be his last start until the All-Star Break, they shouldn't stop him from going deep into the game. Vargas is a definite start here, and Guillermo Moscoso makes a good alternate option for a starter if you need one.
That's a wrap today folks. Sorry there's only an hour between post time and roster lock today.
