Nestor Cortes Jr. Shines in Yankee Victory

by Jesse Garcia | Yankees Correspondent | Wed, May 22nd 10:44pm EDT

Nestor Cortes Jr. delivered a stellar performance, tossing five scoreless innings while allowing just three hits and three walks, striking out six in Wednesday's 7-3 win over the Mariners.

Fantasy Impact:

This outing was a breath of fresh air for Cortes Jr., who has battled through an uneven season. His ability to keep runs off the board in this game helped lower his ERA to 3.29 and improve his WHIP to 1.07, both respectable figures that fantasy managers will appreciate. The six strikeouts are also a reminder of his solid 8.63 K/9 rate, making him a valuable asset in leagues that reward strikeouts.
