Say Goodbye To: Matt Herges, Reynel Pinto

Rockies RP Matt Herges, a staple out of the bullpen in the early going, worked a disastrous third of an inning Monday at Philadelphia. He gave up four runs on six hit and one walk, raising his ERA from 2.63 to 3.90. Herges has allowed seven earned runs in his last four appearances — a span of 4 1/3 innings. He is quickly losing momentum after a hot start and is looking more like the reliever with a career 3.76 ERA. As a middle reliever, he has appeal only in the deepest of NL-only leagues. (CBS Sports)

Marlins RP Renyel Pinto, who had a 0.70 ERA on May 11, has now allowed a run in three of his last six outings and has seen his ERA double to 1.41. Despite his recent struggles, Pinto is still having a solid season as the Marlins setup man. He is of some use to Fantasy owners in deeper NL-only leagues that use true middle relievers and he’s also become a decent cheap source for holds. (CBS Sports)

Meet the New Guys: Pinto, Gerut, Herges

Renyel Pinto is having an excellent season in the Marlins bullpen. “He has a certain swagger when he goes out there because he knows he’s good,” catcher Mike Rabelo said. “He’s been awesome, taking the ball every day for us no matter if it’s righties or lefties. We’ve been able to rely on him every day. He has great confidence, and you need that in the game. He also has a nasty changeup. Everything’s clicking for him.” The 25-year-old Venezuelan lefty has given up just two runs in 25 2/3 innings this season for an 0.70 ERA. He put the Nationals down in order in the eighth on Friday, then he set down three straight batters after allowing a walk on Sunday. He is of some use to Fantasy owners in deeper NL-only leagues that use true middle relievers and he’s also become a decent cheap source for holds. (CBS Sports)

Padres OF Jody Gerut hit a home run for the first time in nearly three years Monday at the Cubs, going 2-for-3 with two walks out of the leadoff spot. His last homer came on May 24, 2005, against the Twins while he was playing for the Indians. He wasn’t in the majors the last two years. Gerut had only two hits in 17 at-bats before his two-hit game Monday. The veteran will split starts in center field, likely with Scott Hairston, which limits his Fantasy value to larger NL-only formats. (CBS Sports)

Rockies RP Matt Herges pitched two scoreless innings in his last appearance Monday against the Cardinals, striking out three. He has a 1.77 ERA and 1.03 WHIP in 20 1/3 innings. Herges was implicated in the Mitchell Report, but he won’t have to serve any suspension. He’s worth adding in deeper NL-only leagues that use true middle men if he continues to pitch like this.
