PITCHING
Homer Bailey is on a bit of a run right now with four straight quality starts yielding a 3.00 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP in 27 innings of work with a 3.4 K:BB ratio. His composite 4.60 ERA still keeps his price depressed at $14,445, though. I like him again today despite a relatively scary matchup against the Brewers. Bartolo Colon ($15,778) isn’t much more expensive, and he’s today’s contestant on “Who Gets to Destroy the Padres?” His 4.31 ERA is still inflated by three bad starts, but he’s almost outrun them. He has a sparkling 1.61 ERA over his last four, going into the eighth in three of them.
