Mixed-league roto owners, are you looking for a waiver-wire pitcher before Friday's full slate of games? Here's my free-agent choice (citing most 12-team leagues) for one day of relatively fantasy stardom: Jhoulys Chacin, Rockies (vs. Giants) 1. Of his last three outings, spanning 20.2 innings, Chacin has surrendered just four total runs (1.78 ERA). 2. As a result of that brief dominance, Chacin has won three straight decisions. 3. Chacin hasn't allowed more than three walks in any start this year (14 outings). 4. For the month of the June, the Giants rank second-to-last with runs in the National League (83). 5. The crop of Friday options isn't that stellar; so, when in doubt, go with the hard-throwing righty at home. The Next Five For Friday 1. Chris Capuano (Dodgers) vs. Phillies Since his post-injury reboot from two weeks ago (two starts) ... Capuano has one win, nine strikeouts and a 0.00 ERA. BOOM! 2. Ricky Nolasco (Marlins) vs Padres Of his last seven starts, Nolasco has surrendered three or less runs six times. Plus, he's always a viable threat for seven strikeouts. 3. Hector Santiago (White Sox) vs. Indians Santiago stifled the Royals for one run and three hits over eight innings in his last start. On the flip side, he hasn't thrown in seven days. 4. Bud Norris (Astros) vs. Angels Since May 21, Norris has a stellar 2.80 ERA. That said, the enigmatic Angels are on the brink of a red-hot surge. 5. Edinson Volquez (Padres) @ Marlins Volquez has notched six or more strikeouts in three starts. And for good measure, he draws an outing against the anemic Marlins. Jay Clemons can be reached, day or night, on Twitter at @FOX_JayClemons.
