I think it is safe to say that Mark Trumbo was underestimated going into fantasy drafts this year even after a solid 2011 campaign. Trumbo continued his torrid pace this season as he hit two three-run homers and had his second multi-homer game in his past five games on Sunday. He has 14 home runs while driving in 39 runs this season.
Clay Buchholz was the worst starting pitcher in baseball for the better part of two months. Red Sox fans where begging for Buchholz to be sent down to the minors after his dismal start to the season, but it’s safe to say that he has turned things around. Buchholz delivered on Thursday night against the Orioles, allowing just four hits in a complete game 7-0 victory. Buchholz was dropped by many fantasy owners after his ERA was over 9.00 through his first six starts. Since then Buchholz has allowed three runs or less in five out his last six starts and has an excellent 1.50 ERA. I’m not trying to throw cold water on Buchholz turnaround, I’m just not sure he is out of the woods yet.
