Bryce Harper may have been the lead story heading into last Saturday's game at Chavez Ravine, but there were plenty of other moments that made the night memorable.

Even though we’ve already had a pair of no-hitters, it could be argued that the most exciting—and certainly the most anticipated—game of the year was Saturday, when the Washington Nationals visited Chavez Ravine and the Los Angeles Dodgers. The most-hyped prospect of all-time, Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper, was making his debut. Harper’s teammate Stephen Strasburg, who wasn’t far removed from his own otherworldly hype, would be making his fifth start of the year. The advent of MLB.tv enabled fans from all over the country to tune in and hear Vin Scully describe the intricacies of Harper’s debut. Both teams were in first place. And, as the game grew late, Matt Kemp and the Nationals' depleted bullpen were rushing toward each other for an inevitable conclusion.

On the Beat: Head Tiger's Tail on the Line

John Perrotto

Jim Leyland knows he is managing for his job in 2011, along with other notes from around the major leagues.

Jim Leyland couldn't have started his tenure as the Tigers' manager on a much better note. He replaced Alan Trammell prior to the 2006 season, and led the Tigers to their first World Series appearance in 22 years. Though the Tigers were upset by the Cardinals in the World Series, it hardly mattered. The Tigers were the American League champions just three years after losing 119 games, and the future could not have seemed brighter.

Why the strike-throwing southpaw will help the Nats yet won't be missed in Wrigleyville in a case of what's the Rusch?

The trading deadline in most leagues has either passed or is coming up shortly. Even if you have not been able to strike the right deal to give your roster one last boost, you can still find helpful players sitting around in your league's free agent pool.

The end of the fantasy baseball season is closer than you think. Does your team have what it takes to make one last push to the front of the pack?

Added to the list

Jhoulys Chacin: Aaron Cook has struggled all season but his last three starts have forced the Colorado Rockies to place him on the 15-day disabled list. Although he has not been recalled yet, Jhoulys Chacin, currently at Triple-A Colorado Springs, will take Cook's spot in the rotation. In 82 and one-third innings before his demotion to the Minors, Chacin put up a 3.54 SIERA and averaged more than a strikeout per inning.

The trade deadline is looming. With everyone focused on big names like Roy Oswalt, who are some lesser-known players who could add a significant boost to your fantasy team?

Added to the list

Brian Duensing: The lefty has pitched well in two starts since joining the Minnesota Twins starting rotation, allowing three runs in 12 innings of work. He does not miss bats at a high rate, averaging only 5.3 per nine innings but he has good control, averaging 2.2 free passes per nine. He is not nearly as good as his 1.83 ERA indicates as his .259 BABIP has contributed greatly to an unsustainable 88 percent strand rate. However, he is likely to stay in the rotation for the foreseeable future and is a good option compared to what else is available in most leagues at this point in the season. He should be available as he is taken in just four percent of ESPN leagues.

Starting rotation changes could significantly affect your fantasy baseball roster. Find out who could lose their job and who could be promoted.

Added to the list

Vance Worley: Worley was called up following the injury to Jamie Moyer and the poor performance of Andrew Carpenter during Tuesday's game when the Phillies faced the Cardinals. His present title is "long reliever", but the Phillies have a three-man rotation at the moment with Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels, and Joe Blanton. The Phillies have not liked what they have seen from J.A. Happ, still rehabbing in the Minor Leagues. Kyle Kendrick was demoted as was Carpenter. GM Ruben Amaro said that Saturday's starter will likely be acquired in the trade, but since the Phillies are not likely to trade for two starting pitchers (unless... Roy Oswalt and Brett Myers?!) and are even more unlikely to go with a four-man rotation, Worley seems like the logical option as the #5 starter.

Fantasy Beat: Weekly Planner #14

Craig Brown

The last few weeks before the All-Star break features a full slate of two-start pitchers.

A holiday kicks off the week, but major league baseball takes no time off as nearly every team plays a full compliment of games leading up to the All-Star break.  It’s a massive list of two-start pitchers from Heater Magazine this week with very little middle ground - there are a bunch of aces (CC Sabathia, Roy Halladay, Zack Greinke and Jered Weaver all make a pair of starts) mixed with several guys you would definitely avoid (Jake Arrieta or Jeff Suppan, anyone?) so instead of listing all starters, I’ll cherry-pick few notables.

Don’t forget to download the color-coded pdf of all two-start pitchers from Heater.

Three months of the regular season are through and quality starting pitchers are in short supply. Find out which hidden gems could inject some life into your fantasy team.

Added to the list

Tom Gorzelanny: Gorzelanny recently reclaimed a spot in the Cubs' starting rotation following the Carlos Zambrano debacle. You may recall Gorz was a respected member of the "Value Picks" list thanks to a well above-average strikeout rate (9.2 per nine) and an average walk rate (3.5 per nine) in his nine starts before moving to the bullpen. He held his opponents to three or fewer runs in seven of those nine starts.

Which starting pitchers can give your fantasy baseball roster a boost?

Players added to the list

Hisanori Takahashi: Takahashi has faced two high-octane offenses -- the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Yankees -- in his first two starts as a fill-in for the New York Mets and has yet to allow a run in 12 innings of work. In those 12 innings, he has struck out 11 and walked merely one batter. As a reliever, he missed a lot of bats but also missed the strike zone frequently. As you can see by the averages in the Value Picks table, that is simply par for the course. Also something to note is that the southpaw, in 38 innings, has a distinct platoon split which may be why he has held the Phillies and Yankees in check. His next start will come on May 31 against a weak Padres offense in their very pitcher-friendly ballpark. Get Takahashi while you can. Despite being available in 95 percent of ESPN leagues, he is being snapped up quickly after dominating the Phillies on Wednesday.

Which available starting pitchers may be able to provide a spark to your fantasy baseball team?

Added to the List

Brandon Morrow: Morrow can hit 100 MPH with his fastball. As you may expect, he racks up plenty of strikeouts -- 54 of them in 41 innings, a league-leading rate of nearly 12 per nine innings. "Great, where do I sign up?" you ask. As I am not a used car salesman, I must warn you about his control problems. He is averaging nearly six walks per nine innings this year, a problem he has had throughout his professional baseball career.
