Hopefully, you weren't among the thousands of fantasy owners who dropped him prior to this outbursts. Patience pays.

• Josh Collmenter was sensational against the Joey Votto-less Reds, allowing no runs and three hits over nine innings, while striking out five. The craziest part was that he faced the minimum 27 batters after inducing three double-plays. Collmenter had a promising start to his career in 2011, with a 3.38 ERA in 24 starts, but he's bounced around from being a starter to a middle reliever since then, and while his career numbers are surprisingly solid, he hasn't had much of a fantasy role until now. Collmenter doesn't strike out many people, but his control is excellent, with only 14 walks allowed this year; now sporting a 3.34 ERA through 62 innings, Collmenter has emerged as a viable stream candidate. (Though you may want to forget about him next week, when he pitches in Colorado.)
