Fantasy Impact:

Staumont had lingering neck tightness for a few days and it affected his velocity and command. He has three saves on the year but Scott Barlow was the preferred ninth-inning option. Staumont has a 14.7% walk rate so the chances of him having a meaningful role this year are slim at this point. Managers can move on in all formats.
