Steele Struggles in Cubs' Loss to Braves

by Jesse Garcia | Cubs Correspondent | Wed, May 22nd 10:52pm EDT

Justin Steele endured a rough outing on Wednesday, allowing five earned runs on six hits and one walk while striking out five over 6.1 innings in the Cubs' 9-2 defeat to the Braves.

Fantasy Impact:

This performance pushed his ERA to an unsettling 5.68 through six starts this season. Despite a decent WHIP of 1.18 and a solid strikeout-to-walk ratio of 3.83, Steele's high ERA and FIP suggest he's been both unlucky and prone to giving up runs. Fantasy managers should be cautious; while his strikeout numbers are passable, his vulnerability in run prevention makes him a risky play in all but the deepest of leagues.
