Mason Black struggles again in rocky outing

Mason Black allowed four earned runs on six hits while striking out two over three innings in Friday's win against the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact:

This performance did little to alleviate concerns about Black's rocky start to the season, as his ERA climbed further to an unsettling 7.71, accompanied by a bloated 1.97 WHIP. The lack of control and high hit rate he's exhibiting, evidenced by a .375 BABIP, suggests that hitters are consistently finding ways to capitalize on his offerings. Fantasy managers should be wary of relying on Black in their lineups, as his current form and underlying metrics like a 7.03 FIP indicate potential ongoing struggles. His role in fantasy rosters should be limited to a streaming option in favorable matchups at best, until he shows signs of substantial improvement.
