Hunter Brown Stumbles Again in Tight Loss

by Jesse Garcia | Astros Correspondent | Wed, May 22nd 9:16pm EDT

Hunter Brown allowed two earned runs on two hits and three walks while striking out three over six innings in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Angels.

Fantasy Impact:

Despite a seemingly solid line, Brown's performance was marred by inefficiency, needing 96 pitches to get through six frames. This outing did little to reassure fantasy managers given his bloated season-long stats, including a 7.06 ERA and a 1.78 WHIP over nine starts. His high strikeout rate (9.14 K/9) remains a silver lining, but the high BABIP (.355) and poor strikeout-to-walk ratio (1.83) suggest ongoing struggles with command and batted ball luck. Managers should tread carefully, as Brown's inconsistency makes him a risky play in all but the deepest of leagues.
