Roto Roundup: Michael Pineda and Ubaldo Jimenez Roughed Up, Adam Jones Homers Again

Ubaldo Jimenez threw 5 innings yesterday and struck out 8, but gave up 5 earned runs and 10 baserunners in that time. His ERA is now up to 4.20, but his FIP is at 3.52 and his xFIP is at 3.51. He could be a buy-low candidate, but the hard part will be whether or not he gets dealt before next Sunday.

Adam Jones homered for the second straight day, and now has 18 on the season. He also has 60 runs batted in, and stole his 7th base last night. He could be a top 20 outfielder coming into next season if he can keep his batting average up all season long.

Michael Pineda took a bit of a beating in his start last night, giving up 7 earned runs and 9 base runners in 4 1/3 inning against the Red Sox. He is already at 120 innings for the season, and I think his innings will be limited for sure now that the Mariners have now fallen out of the race.

Emilio Bonifacio went 2 for 5 with his 22nd stolen base and extended his hitting streak to 23 games. He qualifies at a number of positions, and has been stealing bases in bunches. I don't think that this level of performance will keep up the rest of the season, but if you need steals right now you should grab him.

Alex Cobb threw 7 shutout innings to get his 3rd win of the season yesterday. The Rays have been going with a 6-man rotation, but I'm curious just how many more starts that Cobb will get as a part of that rotation. But I think he'll stay for sure if the Rays end up trading one of their starting pitchers before the deadline.

Madison Bumgarner had another great start yesterday, striking out 8 and allowing just 1 earned run over 7 2/3 innings en route to the victory. Bumgarner's ERA for the year is down to 3.56, but still has just 6 wins to show for it. There's still a chance you could buy low from a frustrated Bumgarner owner, but it won't last long.

Javy Guerra recorded his 7th save of the season, and has really taken a hold of the job. At some point Jonathan Broxton could be back, but I'm not sure he's going to get the job back even if he does.

Chien-Ming Wang was announced as the scheduled starting pitcher for this Friday's game for the Nationals. He's worth a look in NL-only leagues and deeper leagues if you're searching for wins.

Bartolo Colon had his second straight solid start, going 7 innings, allowing 2 earned runs, and striking out 4. He's looking more like the form he had in the first half of the season, but be aware that he was pitching against Oakland yesterday.
