It’s playoff time for fantasy baseball head-to-head leagues. Not a better time to try and give a daily recommedation to try and help you out down the stretch! We’re looking for pitchers that are available in more than half of leagues. Here’s my pick for Wednesday, September 12th.
Cubs pitcher Travis Wood is just 7% owned in Yahoo! fantasy leagues. Wood has had a quality start in 3 of his last 4 starts and only missed the 4th by 1/3 of an inning. He takes on the Astros who he has dominated in his career with a 2.09 ERA and 0.98 WHIP over 43 innings. Wood threw 7.2 shutout innings last time he faced Houston on July 1st. I also think Clayton Richard at home in Petco against the Cardinals could be serviceable if you’re looking to use up some innings. Richard is owned in 28% of leagues and has a 2.76 ERA and 1.07 WHIP at home this year. Good luck!
