Blake Snell stumbles again in rough outing

Blake Snell endured another challenging start, allowing five earned runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out three over 4 2/3 innings in Friday's 17-1 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Impact:

This performance continues a troubling trend for Snell, whose season ERA ballooned to an alarming 11.57, accompanied by a WHIP of 1.97. His strikeout rate remains decent at 9.26 K/9, but the high BABIP of .410 suggests some bad luck, though not enough to excuse the overall poor results. Fantasy managers should be increasingly cautious with Snell in their lineups, as his inability to limit damage or pitch deep into games severely limits his value. His high ERA and WHIP are particularly toxic in categories leagues, making him a risky play until he shows signs of substantial improvement.
