Justin Verlander stumbles against Brewers

Justin Verlander endured a rough outing in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Brewers.

Fantasy Impact:

He allowed four earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out three over 4 2/3 innings. This performance marks a dip in Verlander's otherwise steady season, pushing his ERA to 3.97 and WHIP to 1.21. His decreased strikeout rate of 6.9 K/9 continues to be a concern for fantasy managers used to his historically higher numbers. Given his elevated 5.35 FIP and modest strikeout-to-walk ratio, Verlander's fantasy reliability seems to be waning, suggesting a cautious approach in high-stakes matchups.
