Ben Brown battered in Boston blowout

by Chris Schommer | Cubs Correspondent | Sun, Apr 28th 7:13am EDT

Ben Brown was roughed up, allowing three earned runs on seven hits while striking out four over 3 2/3 innings in Saturday's 17-0 loss to the Red Sox.

Fantasy Impact:

This outing inflated his ERA to 4.30 and WHIP to 1.17 for the season, which might raise eyebrows among fantasy managers. Despite a decent strikeout rate of 8.6 K/9 and a solid 3.26 FIP, Brown's performance today could be a red flag for those relying on him for consistent fantasy points. His inability to limit hits today, evidenced by a .306 BABIP, suggests potential volatility in his starts. Fantasy managers should monitor his next outings closely, as another shaky performance could hint at a trend rather than a blip.
