National League - FAAB - 6/15/14

Happy Fathers Day to all, including my dad, father-in-law and brothers-in-law.

Starting Pitching:

Chase Anderson, Diamondbacks - Anderson, despite a 0.69 ERA and 38:6 K:BB over 39 innings at Double-A Mobile, likely didn't get much love when he was promoted on May 11. Much of that likely was due to his so-so pedigree as compared to some of the other names in the Arizona farm system. Anderson is making us all look bad, posting a 3.14 ERA and 1.15 WHIP across 28.2 innings in his first five starts. He struggled a bit Friday, allowing two runs on four hits and four walks with four strikeouts over five innings against the Dodgers. If you are already on board, ride it out, if not, jump on but be ready to jump off since his FIP is 4.67 and BABIP is a low .263 in his first five starts, numbers that worsened Friday, which could forebode future struggles. Mixed: $6; NL: owned.
