St. Louis Cardinals right-hander Shelby Miller tossed two innings of scoreless relief in his big league debut Wednesday, allowing one hit and striking out four. Miller, 21, is one of the top pitching prospects in the game, and he had thrived at Triple-A Memphis over the past two months. For now he's likely to pitch in relief, but he could provide value in that role in NL-only formats. He's a must-own in dynasty leagues.

Atlanta Braves left-hander Mike Minor stymied the Colorado Rockies for seven shutout innings Wednesday, allowing one hit and striking out seven. Minor's overall numbers don't impress (4.58 ERA), but he has been considerably better since the All-Star break (2.56 ERA). Consider him a worthy spot starter the rest of the way at home (3.61 ERA) and a potential sleeper in 2013.

Milwaukee Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks homered twice and knocked in four runs Wednesday, and over his past eight games he's 15-for-31 with three home runs, four stolen bases and 13 runs scored. Weeks is one of ESPN's most added players and is erasing months of underachievement, reminding us that recent trends matter more than season numbers.
