by Ryan Lester of www.lesterslegends.com

Here’s a look at the unheralded players who played well yesterday.

C.J. Wilson, Texas Rangers
Wilson got a no-decision despite giving up 2 runs on 2 hits with 6 Ks. He’s 5-3 with a 3.48 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP.

Ryan Raburn and Gerald Laird, Detroit Tigers
Raburn went 2 for 4 with 2 HRs and 4 RBIs. He’s hitting just .180 so don’t put too much faith in a repeat performance. Same goes with Laird who raised his average to .178 after going 3 for 4 with a run.

Gordon Beckham, Chicago White Sox
Beckham went 2 for 4 with a run and 3 RBIs (15). He’s hitting .210. They were his first RBIs since June 1st so I wouldn’t run out and pick him up.

Delmon Young, Minnesota Twins (pictured)
Young continued his torrid pace, and 11 game hitting streak, going 3 for 4 with 2 runs  and an RBI (41). He’s hitting .295.

Dave Bush, Milwaukee Brewers
Bush gave up1 run in 7-1/3 innings to improve to 2-5 with a 4.67 ERA.

Jake Arrieta, Baltimore Orioles
Arrieta gave up 1 run on 3 hits in 7 innings to improve to 2-0 with a 2.77 ERA. Not quite Stephen Strasburg numbers, but a brilliant start to a career for Arrieta as well.

    Moving forward is Arrieta worth adding on a 10 team h-2-h. Also, I read today that G. Floyd is a good addition due to his usually strong second half. I have been using J. Garcia and M. Leake all year but I’m kinda unsure about the remainder of the season with these pitchers. What say you great and wise one(s)?
