Wellemeyer Evens Record with Sloppy Win Over Tigers

Todd Wellemeyer improved to 6-6 on the season, holding the Tigers to two runs over 5 1/3 innings in a 4-3 win on Wednesday night. Wellemeyer allowed six hits, but the only runs scored from two Curtis Granderson home runs. He fanned five and walked two in his first victory since May 27. Wellemeyer has a less than impressive 51/32 K/BB ratio in 80 2/3 innings this season. With the drop in velocity, he’s nothing more than an occasional spot starter in fantasy leagues right now. Wellemeyer is back at .500 after snapping a two-game losing streak. He’d been pretty poor in his last three outings but pitched well against Detroit. Wellemeyer starts twice in Week 12 (June 22-28) so get him active in deeper mixed leagues. His first start comes Monday at the Mets against Tim Redding and he’ll end the week against the Twins.

Wellemeyer Back on Track? Tosses Six Scoreless

Todd Wellemeyer hurled six scoreless innings in a 5-0 win over the Royals on Friday night. He evened his record at 4-4 with the win. Wellemeyer gave up just four hits on the night, walking three and striking out three. He’s really struggled so far this season, giving up four runs or more five times this season, including his two previous starts. He’ll look to build on this success against the Brewers next time out.

Wellemeyer Walks Seven, Loses Against Brewers

Todd Wellemeyer walked seven batters while yielding four runs in 5 2/3 innings of a loss versus the Brewers on Sunday. He also hit two batters. On the plus side he also gave up only three hits, but that’s hardly much of a consolation prize. With back-to-back awful outings and his ERA up to 5.87 Wellemeyer needs to be benched. (Rotoworld)

Wellemeyer Shelled by Pirates – No, Not Somali, Pittsburgh

Todd Wellemeyer was shelled for seven earned runs on nine hits over 4 1/3 innings Tuesday against the Pirates. Wellemeyer also walked three batters and surrendered two home runs. The Pirates got to him early and he looked clearly frustrated on the mound. Wellemeyer had pitched well against the Pirates in his previous start, but he got in trouble with big innings and the long ball. He has given up four home runs in his last three games after opening with no home runs allowed in his first four starts. He’s been fairly solid this season, but will leave Pittsburgh with a 3-3 record and 5.80 ERA. Mixed leaguers might want to think about benching him in certain matchups. (Rotoworld, Rotowire)

Wellemeyer Bounces Back With Another Solid Outing

Todd Wellemeyer yielded two runs and four hits over seven innings in a victory over the Pirates on Thursday. Since opening the season 1-2 with a 6.14 ERA, Wellemeyer has bounced back with a pair of seven-inning, two-run starts. He’s now 3-2 with a 4.75 ERA. If the Cards opt to skip Mitchell Boggs with the off day Monday, then Wellemeyer will get two starts next week and make for a solid play in mixed leagues. Wellemeyer allowed two runs in seven innings, with three of his four strikeouts coming against No. 8 hitter Brian Bixler. Wellemeyer (3-2) worked through early wildness that left him with more balls than strikes in the third inning and controlled the Pirates’ 3-4-5 hitters, who were 0-for-9. He has gone seven innings, giving up two runs in each of his last two starts. He won both starts and has looked like a solid NL-only pitcher and a decent mixed league stopgap. View him in that role for his next start on May 12 at Pittsburgh and he is currently slated to be a two-start pitcher in the upcoming scoring period. (Rotoworld, CBS Sports)
