Check these guys out if you need a quick spot start. 

Ivan Nova – His last start was far and away his best of the season, but until then it’s truly amazing that he had a winning record. That being said, he’s 7-2 on the year so something is working. Use at your own risk.

Garret Richards – In is first start, Richards went 7 innings and only gave up 1 run on 4 hits to go along with 8 K’s and 2 walks. Sure it was against the Mariners, but Richards was expected to be here. Many thought that he would be in the rotation to begin the season, but after starting the season in triple A, Richards was not pitching well. Now he’s attacking hitters and seems to be throwing the ball with purpose. How long he’ll be in the rotation is still to be determined, but ride him while you can.

Randall Delgado – When he’s run in to trouble this year it’s been directed linked to control problems. When he keeps his walk total down, Delgado can really get in to a groove. After his last start, in which he only walked 1 person, Delgado may be settling in.
