Have Some Faith In Colby Lewis

Despite a 9.3 ERA over his last three starts, Colby Lewis is a perfect guy to pick up off the wire.

Analysis: Colby Lewis is being dropped in nearly twenty percent of fantasy leagues and it is somewhat understandable. An 0-2 record with a 9.3 ERA in his last three starts is awful but two of those starts were against Boston. Lewis is going through some command issues and when you keep the ball up in the zone to the sluggers the Sox have… you are in big trouble. But, Lewis does have a few things going for him. Texas gives him tons of run support usually and he’s pitched at least six innings in thirteen of his last fifteen starts. Besides his recent struggles over the last week and a half, he hasn’t allowed more than four runs in a ball game since June 11th. He is by no means an ace but he is a 4-4.2 ERA starter who will rack up the wins and strikeouts. His velocity has been down a bit this year but when he locates his fastball and slider it really doesn’t matter.

Capitalize on impatient owners dropping this useful fantasy starter.
