Rookies Skaggs, Turner pitch well 

August, 23, 2012
Arizona Diamondbacks left-hander Tyler Skaggs made his big league debut Wednesday with 6 2/3 innings of three-hit, two-run ball, earning the victory. Skaggs was unusually wild, as he walked five Miami Marlins, and struck out four. According to the Arizona Republic, the D-backs will try to keep the 21-year-old Skaggs around, rather than sending him back down. Look for him to contribute in September, and really matter in future seasons.

• Skaggs beat Marlins right-hander Jacob Turner, who made his debut for the NL team after six mostly ugly outings over two years for the Detroit Tigers. Turner was good, permitting four hits and three runs, with nary a walk and five strikeouts, over six innings. Turner, also 21, isn't quite the strikeout option Skaggs is, but he should have more opportunity to pitch and help fantasy owners the rest of 2012.

Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre swatted three home runs Wednesday, doing so by the fourth inning against the Baltimore Orioles. Beltre entered the day seventh among third base eligibles on the Player Rater, and outside the top 50, and now is fourth and 38th, respectively. It's not a disappointing season for the 26th pick in ESPN average live drafts, and Beltre should be a safe third-rounder again in 2013.
