||Two Start Pitchers :: Week 10
by Scott Mickels
Published: June 10, 2012, 8:54 am
With Week 10 comes another week of interleague play and unfortunately, not a lot of two-start pitchers to chose from. We do happen to have one quick Injury Watch however. For this we head to Boston where the Red Sox's Josh Beckett is recovering from a slight cramp in his hamstring. He felt the cramp during the 8th inning of his last start. As a result, he was pulled from the game and not able to go the 9th as a precaution. This is something Boston manager Bobby Valentine is calling it "non-problematic" and shouldn't really concern you heading into Week 10. There is the slight possibility of him re-aggravating the hamstring and possibly being pulled early from a start, but I wouldn't let that deter you from using him next week as you would normally. Consider Beckett an advisable option for Week 10.
Now, on to what we all came here for, the Two-Start Pitchers!

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.
