Wicks Wobbles But Doesn't Fall in Cubs Victory

Jordan Wicks delivered a mixed performance in the Cubs' 5-3 win over the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact:

He allowed two earned runs on five hits and one walk while striking out five over 4.1 innings. Despite not factoring into the decision, Wicks's outing was a slight improvement over his troubling start to the season, marked by a high 5.68 ERA and 1.89 WHIP. His impressive 13.7 K/9 continues to be a silver lining, suggesting potential for fantasy relevance if he can find more consistency and control. However, his elevated .408 BABIP indicates some bad luck, which might regress to the mean. Fantasy managers should keep an eye on his next starts for signs of adjustment and improvement.
