In Monday's game against the Texas Rangers, Patrick Sandoval had a rough outing, lasting only 3 innings due to an oblique injury while allowing 2 hits and issuing 5 walks.
Although he managed to keep the Rangers off the scoreboard, his lack of command was evident, as he threw 65 pitches in his short outing. This performance adds to Sandoval's disappointing season, as he now holds a 4.54 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP in 28 games started. His 8.0 K/9 and 4.22 FIP suggest he has the potential to be more effective, but his 1.73 strikeout-to-walk ratio and high BABIP of 0.316 indicate that he still has work to do in order to become a reliable fantasy option. With a record of 7 wins and 13 losses after this game, Sandoval's fantasy outlook remains uncertain.
