Kevin Gausman stumbles, Jays fall to Rays 5-4

Kevin Gausman had a middling outing in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Rays.

Fantasy Impact:

He allowed three earned runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out six over six innings. This performance slightly dents his already shaky season stats, pushing his ERA to an unimpressive 4.89 and WHIP to 1.51. Despite a decent strikeout rate of 9.1 K/9, Gausman's high BABIP of .372 suggests he's been somewhat unlucky, but it also indicates that hitters are making solid contact. His 3.61 FIP suggests a better underlying performance than his ERA reflects, yet fantasy managers might still be wary. Given the inconsistency, Gausman remains a risky play in fantasy lineups, particularly in shallower leagues.
