A surging SP and a new closer top this week's countdown.

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues ANALYSIS: Wade Miley is only owned in slightly more than a 1/4 of Yahoo! leagues, and at this point I’m convinced it’s because he’s got a really junky sounding name, because there’s really no other explanation. Miley’s fastball velocity has been increasing each month, and he has a lot of room […]
The Fantasy Fix | Jul 18th, 9:55pm
The lefty has three straight starts of at least 6.2 innings and no more than two earned runs, and in six of his last 10 starts he's struck out at least eight batters. The increase in strikeouts is due to an increase in slider usage, up to 25 percent this season. He's recorded 46 strikeouts with his slider - the most of any pitch - despite it being just his third most used pitch. The Cubs hit lefties rather well, but their 25 percent strikeout rate is the worst in the Majors against lefties. - Andrew Miller
Roto Professor | Jul 14th, 2:55am
While his 4.18 ERA isn't impressive, he also has a 1.24 WHIP and 118 K. Over his last three starts he's allowed 3 ER on 13 H and 4 BB, striking out 22, over 21.2 IP. His strikeouts are up this season, but so is his SwStr% (10.2% vs. 8.6% for his career), part of which can be due to an increased usage of his slider (25.1%). When coupled with a 2.69 BB/9 and 48.8% groundball rate, there's a lot to like. As we've said before, he's a pitcher worth owning in all formats for the second half. - Eric Stashin
