Javier Assad Wobbles But Cubs Edge Braves

by Nate Miller | Cubs Correspondent | Wed, May 22nd 9:08am EDT

Javier Assad struggled with control but managed to limit damage, allowing two earned runs on four hits and five walks while striking out four over 4 2/3 innings in the Cubs' 4-3 victory over the Braves.

Fantasy Impact:

Despite a shaky outing characterized by high pitch count and control issues, Assad's season ERA slightly rose but remains impressive at 1.70. His WHIP also ticked up to 1.11, reflecting the five walks issued in this game. Fantasy managers should note that while Assad's BABIP suggests some luck, his solid overall performance this season still makes him a viable option in most leagues.
