De La Rosa was called up this week to replace Felix Doubront, who was placed on the DL with a shoulder injury. De La Rose posted a 3.04 ERA in Triple-A with 52 strikeouts in 53.1 innings of work. The 25-year-old will be in the rotation for the foreseeable future and is worth a shot in deeper formats.

De Grom was dealing in the minors this season and the 25-year-old continued his torrid pace into the majors. Through four starts, de Grom has a sizzling 2.42 ERA. De Grom has even pitched so well that he has earned a spot in the rotation over fireballer Rafeal Montero. The young right-hander is worth look in all formats and can certainly be a useful SP7.

McHugh is another underrated hurler turning heads in Houston. The right-hander has now thrown seven innings in two straight starts and the veteran has averaged 101 pitches over his last six starts. The 26-year-old can be a serviceable option in leagues with 10-plus owners and will a decent youngster to round out your rotation.

Alvarez has developed into the team’s ace with Jose Fernandez done for the year. Alvarez has quietly amassed a 2.97 ERA and thrown two complete games already. He isn’t a strikeout thrower (5.40 K/9), but he has only walked 16 batters through 66.2 innings of work. The right-hander has become a legitimate fantasy hurler.

Skaggs has started to settle into his role in the A’s rotation. Over his last two starts (14 IP), Skaggs has a 1.97 ERA and has struck out 14 batters. The 22-year-old is a ground ball pitcher and will get plenty of run support with the heavy bats in LA. Skaggs could easily win 15 games and throw 190 innings this year, so it is about time everyone stopped sleeping on him.
