Garcia hasn’t been getting much run support lately (the Braves have scored just seven total over his last three starts, which is 21.2 innings), but overall has been pitching well. He’s got a 3.16 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP heading into tomorrow against the Marlins.
Seth Lugo, SP/RP, New York Mets: In his last outing (which was his season debut on June 11), Lugo went seven innings with just one run allowed against the Braves for a win.
In that game, Lugo struck out six and walked two, allowing six hits in all. He’s coming off a partial tear of his UCL but seems to be doing fine. He’ll get the Nats tomorrow in a tougher test.
Eduardo Escobar, 3B/SS, Minnesota Twins: Escobar has been playing quite well lately, and is getting picked up in a lot of leagues. Over this last three starts, he’s got 10 hits, four runs, two homers and five RBI.
That gives Escobar a .295 BA with seven homers and 24 RBI so far. As long as he’s hitting, he’ll keep appearing in the lineup. He gets the Indians starting tonight.
Matt Adams, 1B/OF, Atlanta Braves: We’ve talked about ex-Cardinal Adams a couple of times this year already, and he’s still playing well. In his last three games, he’s got seven hits, seven runs, two homers and six RBI.
That makes nine homers with 28 RBI and a .290 BA for Adams so far. He and the Braves are heading into a home-stand tonight starting with the Marlins.
Mike Zunino, C, Seattle Mariners: Let’s finish up with Zunino, who is a pretty solid pickup if you’re in need of a lower-end backstop. He’s got eight hits, two homers, three runs and six RBI in his last four games.
On the year, Zunino has a .241 BA with six homers and 23 RBI. He’s been on fire in June, and is worthy of a look before the Rangers series gets going tonight.
