Mason Black shows modest improvement in win

by Chris Schommer | Giants Correspondent | Sun, May 12th 8:24am EDT

Mason Black pitched 4 1/3 innings, allowing one earned run on four hits and two walks while striking out two in the Giants' 5-1 victory over the Reds on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact:

This outing was a slight step forward for Black, who has struggled with a high ERA and WHIP early in the season. His performance on Saturday showed some control improvements, but the low strikeout total and short outing highlight ongoing challenges. Despite the Giants securing a win, Black's fantasy value remains limited by his high ERA (6.23) and WHIP (1.96), coupled with a modest strikeout rate (6.2 K/9). Fantasy managers should continue to monitor his progress, but he remains a risky play in most formats.
