Michael Brantley’s July 2016 (w/ Rehab Game Details)
hello all! this blog is going to be a lot like the June blog in that many sections are bare or have been omitted because Michael did not play in any July games. most of what you’re about to read is simply DL updates and rehab game performances. boy i can’t wait until Michael rejoins the Tribe so things can get back to normal ’round here.
Michael Brantley’s 2016 #s Through July
Michael Brantley has not added to his overall season numbers since May 9, but that very well could [finally!] change in August. until then, we’ve got another “#s Through” blog that’s vastly similar to the last one i posted a month ago. for your convenience, i have denoted sections that weren’t modified in any way with (unchanged) next to them. otherwise, everything else contains new information and was updated accordingly.

Well here we are, the dog days of summer are upon us as we hit the first of August. We are greeted with a so-so 8 game slate and had amazing success yesterday, so let’s continue that today!
Daily Matchups for 8/1/2016
Stephen Strasburg- Stras comes into this matchup having a dominating season so far. He’s pitched 127 innings allowing only 90 hits while striking out 155 and walking only 36. He is sporting a 2.68 ERA with 14 wins. He draws a great matchup against the Diamondbacks who he has been able to hold to a .230 BA (14 for 61) while giving up only 1 HR to the current roster. He’s averaging 47.47 FP this season and coming off of a great performance against a good Indians’ team where he pitched 7 innings, allowing only 3 hits, 2 walks, 7 Ks picking up the win and 54 FP. We are looking for another 50+ FP outing from him tonight.
Kyle Hendricks- If you asked me at the beginning of the season if I would ever put Hendricks into the stud category I would most likely just laugh in your face. But here we are, Hendricks coming into Monday’s matchup with 9 wins, 116 IPs, allowing 91 hits, 32 walks, striking out 103 and a 2.39 ERA. He had a down game his last one against the White Sox where he pitched 5.2 innings, allowing 6 hits, 2 walks, 7 Ks and only 29 FP. Tonight he draws a great matchup against the Marlins who he has held to a .207 BA (12 for 58) with a 19.7 K%, 10.6 B%, and striking out 13 Marlins’ bats. He has given up 10 singles, inducing 19 groundouts, 7 flyouts, 6 walks and 3 pop outs. He hasn’t given up a HR to this current Miami roster and he comes in as a great option if you don’t want to pay up for
CC Sabathia- Why do I like him? Well, the Mets struggle against lefties and he has held them to a .222 BA (26 for 117) in his lifetime. Their most feared hitter (besides the oft-injured Cespedes) is the switch-hitting Asdrubal Cabrera and he left with a left knee injury on Sunday. CC is coming off a terrific game against Houston where he pitched 6 1/3 innings, allowing only 4 hits, 2 walks, striking out 5, picking up the W and 41 FP on FanDuel. He’s more of a tournament option but he’s got a 27.6 K%, 4.1 B%, while striking out 34 current Mets, inducing 29 groundouts, 15 flyouts, and only allowing 21 singles. Can’t trust CC in cash games on this small slate, but love him for a tourney or two.
We’re barely two weeks past the 2016 MLB All Star Game and it is already appropriate to say that this has been a truly strange baseball season. Every year there are stories that unfold that cause outsiders to do a double take to make sure they understood correctly but this year seems to have had a disproportionate amount with more than two months of the season left to go.
Here are some of the most unforgettable:
