Two Start Pitchers :: Week 14
by Scott Mickels
Published: June 30, 2013, 7:21 pm

 It's Week 14 and we've fortunately we've only got one minor Injury Watch. For this we head up to Cleveland where the Tribe’s starting pitcher Scott Kazmir is dealing with back spasms. He was removed from his last start against Baltimore after throwing 7 solid innings. He could've gone deeper into the game as he had only thrown 78 pitches at that point, but the Indians opted to take pull him as a precaution. Kazmir went through some massage treatments on Thursday and, despite still being a little sore, he said his back felt much better. Kazmir is expected to make his next scheduled start Tuesday at Kansas City. Kazmir has pitched better lately as he's only given up one earned run and one walk with 11 strikeouts in his last 14 innings pitched. Consider Kazmir a Keep in Mind option in standard mixed leagues.


Good luck to your fantasy teams!  Now, on to what we all came here for, the Two-Start Pitchers!

 Of course, if you have any pitching questions, don’t hesitate to email me with them at scottmickels@fantasyplaymakers.com.  Also, don’t forget to check out Mick’s Fantasy Podcast! It goes hand-in-hand with this article!

NOTE:  These starts are not set in stone. They can change for any variety  of  reasons: managerial moves, injuries, rain-outs, etc. Please keep  in mind  they are probable.
