Sean Newcomb gets quality start Tuesday night

Sean Newcomb gave up three solo homers at Coors Tuesday night but fought through those to deliver six pretty good innings and walked away with a quality start and a no-decision in the Braves 4-3 victory over the Rockies. Over six, he allowed five hits, three runs (all earned), and four walks while recording eight strikeouts. Newcomb will pitch again Sunday against Luis Castillo and the Reds in Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact

Newcomb is a solid pitcher, despite the record and command issues. His command was much better tonight than it has been, with four walks (one of those intentional) and eight strikeouts. But take a look at his home and away stats: He is 0-6 with a 5.02 ERA in seven home starts and 2-1 with a 3.67 ERA over five road starts. Reminds one of Julio Teheran' stats, right? Also, he has earned seven quality starts over 12 starts and in those 12 starts the Braves offense has scored three or fewer runs while he was in the game each and every time. This guy is underrated and is set to be a fixture in the Braves rotation next year and beyond. He is projected as a #2 or #3 in that rotation and might be a solid pickup for those in keeper leagues at an inexpensive price.
