Justin Dunn was ineffective on Sunday when he gave up one run on one hit while striking out five and walking five over just two innings in the Mariners 7-3 win over the D-Backs.
Dunn lacked command in this one as it took him 66 pitches--only 33 strikes--to get through two innings. The only hit he surrendered was an RBI-double by Josh Van Meter but he simply couldn't control the walks and replaced by Casey Sadler who would go on to get the win. The sloppy effort on Sunday gives Dunn a 4.11 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and an ugly 30:25 K/BB ratio across 35 innings (eight starts). He'll continue to be hard to trust in fantasy until he can consistently throw strikes and cut down on the free passes. The 24-year old will look to bounce back in his next start against the San Diego Padres. no easy task.
