Yoshinobu Yamamoto dazzles on mound against Cubs

by Chris Schommer | Dodgers Correspondent | Sun, Apr 7th 9:02am EDT

In a commanding performance against the Chicago Cubs, Yoshinobu Yamamoto tossed five scoreless innings while racking up eight strikeouts in the Dodgers' 4-1 victory.

Fantasy Impact:

Despite a modest pitch count of 80, Yamamoto efficiently navigated through the Cubs lineup, allowing just three hits and two walks. The hurler has mostly settled down after a rough first start on the mound, recording at least five strikeouts while also not allowing a run in each of his last two starts for the Dodgers. The right-hander should continue to showcase his impressive ability to hold opposing lineups in check no matter the situation while on the mound, providing manager Dave Roberts with another strong starting option as part of a deep pitching staff.
