Stock Up: Todd Wellemeyer

(Originally posted on

Wellemeyer went 5 innings allowing one run on four hits with six strikeouts. The downside? Three walks! I’m not basing his potential value off of just this starter. Here are his numbers as a starter last year, plus last night’s game:

4-1 W-L
54.3 IP
3.49 ERA
1.37 WHIP
7.0 K/9
1.6 K/BB

Final thought: The sample size isn’t huge at 54 innings, but the performance suggests he merits a spot in deep NL-Only Leagues where you need a starter. If he gets the walks under control (pardon the pun) he could become worthwhile in shallower leagues.
