Graham Ashcraft struggles, Reds still triumph over Cubs

Graham Ashcraft had a shaky outing, allowing three earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four over 4 2/3 innings in the Reds' narrow 5-4 victory over the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact:

This performance did little to reassure fantasy managers, as Ashcraft's season ERA nudged up to 4.76 and his WHIP remained elevated at 1.45. His inability to go deep into games, coupled with a mediocre strikeout rate of 7.2 K/9, continues to cap his fantasy upside. Given these factors, Ashcraft remains a risky play in most fantasy formats, especially in leagues that heavily penalize for ERA and WHIP. His season-long inconsistencies suggest a cautious approach in relying on him for consistent fantasy production.
