Jared Jones Stumbles in San Francisco Showdown

by Jesse Garcia | Pirates Correspondent | Wed, May 22nd 10:23pm EDT

Jared Jones had a mixed outing, allowing three earned runs on six hits and three walks while striking out five over six innings in Wednesday's 9-5 loss to the Giants.

Fantasy Impact:

Despite the loss, Jones's performance was somewhat in line with his season averages, though his command was slightly off, as evidenced by the three walks. His season ERA slightly increased from an impressive 3.05 but his WHIP remains commendable. Fantasy managers should note that while this start wasn't his sharpest, Jones's high strikeout rate and excellent WHIP still make him a valuable asset in most fantasy formats. His ability to maintain a low BABIP and a strong strikeout-to-walk ratio suggests that better outings are likely ahead, keeping him as a solid option in fantasy rotations.
