Corbin Burnes (1-1) was phenomenal against the Cubs on Wednesday, tossing six shutout innings while allowing two hits and no walks. He struck out 10.
Burnes is off to an other-worldly start to the season, striking out 30 and walking none in 18.1 innings pitched. His ERA sits at a sparkling 0.49 and his WHIP at 0.22. He was viewed as a fantasy sleeper heading into the season, but has exceeded even the loftiest of expectations so far. The only concern for him going forward is the Brewers potentially limiting his innings down the stretch. Until then, continue to ride him for his excellent ratios. He lines up to face the Padres early next week.
