Patrick Sandoval stumbles again in Angels' defeat

Patrick Sandoval struggled mightily in Friday's 10-4 loss to the Guardians, allowing eight earned runs on six hits and four walks while striking out four over just 3 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Impact:

This performance continues a concerning trend for Sandoval, whose season ERA ballooned to 5.60 and WHIP worsened to 1.55. Despite a decent strikeout rate of 9.4 K/9, his high BABIP of .350 and escalating ERA suggest that hitters are consistently making solid contact against him. Fantasy managers should be wary of relying on Sandoval in their starting rotations, as his high ERA and WHIP are likely to be a drag on those categories. His ability to strike out batters remains a small silver lining, but it's overshadowed by his overall ineffectiveness this season.
