Feldman in the fold

Texas Rangers starter Scott Feldman has flown under the radar this season despite his 5-2 record and 4.02 ERA. The righty has an appealing matchup Thursday night against the lowly Arizona Diamondbacks. His curveball is one of the nastiest in the league; of the 63 swings against the pitch, only five have led to a hit this season. The Diamondbacks as a team hit .226 against the curveball. AL-only leaguers need to grab this guy if he's available.
