Johan Oviedo left his start on Wednesday in the bottom of the fifth inning tied at three. Oviedo was chased from the game by a Tucker Barnhart home run. He allowed three hits, three earned runs, one walk and struck out five. Oviedo threw 83 pitches in this one, 51 of them for strikes.
Oviedo is 0-1 this season with a 4.30 ERA in 14 2/3 innings pitched. He is scheduled to take on Jose Berrios and the Twins in his next start on September eighth. Oviedo is not a recommended streaming candidate because he does not pitch deeply into games nor does he strike out tons of batters. Owners in 12-team standard redraft leagues can keep an eye on him for signs of breakout.
