Matt Waldron shines in Padres' victory over Braves

Matt Waldron delivered a strong performance on Friday, allowing just one earned run on five hits and two walks while striking out 10 over 5 2/3 innings in the Padres' 3-1 win against the Braves.

Fantasy Impact:

This outing was a refreshing change of pace for Waldron, whose season has been marred by a high 5.00 ERA and 1.42 WHIP across nine starts. His 10 strikeouts in this game highlight his potential for high strikeout totals, aligning with his season K/9 rate of 9.0. Despite his previous struggles, this performance could signal a turning point, offering hope for fantasy managers in need of strikeouts and quality starts. However, his overall inconsistency this season suggests a cautious approach in relying on him as a regular starter in fantasy lineups.
