Phil Humber, SP, CHW - Humber (head) was activated from the DL last week and made two starts this week. In those two starts, he threw a total of 13 innings, giving up two runs and no walks while striking out 13. Humber was hit in the face with a comeback hit in the middle of August that sidelined him for a few weeks, but he's healthy and pitching well. Though he's posted good averages all season (ERA, WHIP) it took a while for Humber to get his strikeout rate up. He struck out just 65 batters in 107.1 innings prior to the All-Star break, but he's struck out 34 batters through 37 post All-Star break innings. Make a strong bid on him if his injury made him available. Mixed: $9; AL: $12.
