Ariel Miranda lifted from rotation

Ariel Miranda was lifted from the rotation, and will not make his once scheduled start on Sunday against the Astros.

Fantasy Impact

Miranda imploded on Monday, giving up four runs on six hits and walking three in only 1 2/3 innings. In his last 12 starts, the 27-year-old southpaw posted a troubling 6.71 ERA, 1.44 WHIP, 4.1 BB/9 and 2.6 HR/9. "He's running on fumes right now," manager Scott Servais said. "I think that's what we're seeing. I appreciate how he competes and goes out there. There are certain nights he doesn't have it and he didn't have it at all tonight. We'll take a look where he's at in a couple days from now." Miranda, who prior to this season had never thrown more than 101 innings, has already logged 158 in 2017. Thus it is not surprising to see him tiring down the stretch. How Miranda will be utilized, if at all, for the rest of the year is not known at this time. For now, Andrew Moore will take over Miranda's spot in the rotation.

Ariel Miranda earns loss

Ariel Miranda (8-7) lasted only 1 2/3 innings surrendering four runs on six hits and three walks, and was credited with the loss in Seattle's defeat to the Rangers on Monday. He struck out none.

Fantasy Impact

An absolute stinker for Miranda and his fantasy owners. The 27-year-old left-hander threw a whopping 50 pitches in less than two innings, in which only 24 were for strikes. It appears that with each subsequent start Miranda goes from bad to worse. Since the beginning of July, he has spun only two quality starts in 12 appearances. Tonight's poor performance bumped Miranda's ERA from 4.72 to 4.90 for the year. Only GM's that can stomach extreme derring-do should consider inserting Miranda into their lineups at this crucial time of the fantasy campaign. His next scheduled start is Saturday against the Astros in Houston.

Ariel Miranda hurls hitless ball

Ariel Miranda allowed no hits but gave up one run on six walks while striking out five over six innings in Seattle's 3-1 loss to the Astros Tuesday evening. He did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact

Miranda was lifted despite allowing no hits, needing 112 pitches to get through his six innings of work. The 27-year old southpaw has had trouble with his control lately, walking 10 men over 15 innings in his last three starts. In his previous 15 starts, Miranda has also been subject to the long ball, delivering 25 taters over 83.0 innings (2.7 HR/9). With a 4.72 ERA, he provides little fantasy upside. Miranda's next scheduled start is Monday against the Rangers at Globe Life Park in Arlington.

Ariel Miranda sustains no decison on Friday

Ariel Miranda (8-6) pitched 4.2 scoreless innings Friday, yielding two hits and four walks while striking out three in Seattle's 2-1 win over the Yankees. He did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact

In his five August starts, Miranda has not been able to make beyond the sixth inning. The 27-year-old southpaw was relieved Friday by Emilio Pagan after throwing an inefficient 99 pitches, of which only 52 found the strike zone. On the bright side, it was the first time in six starts he did not surrender a long ball, and only the third time in his last 14 outings. Miranda now has a 4.62 ERA and 1.20 WHIP on the season, and is certainly not a safe fantasy option. His next scheduled start is Wednesday against the Orioles at Camden Yards.

Ariel Miranda tagged with loss

Ariel Miranda (7-6) allowed four runs (all earned) on four hits and six walks while striking out six over 4.2 innings in Seattle's 4-2 defeat to the Angels on Sunday. He was charged with the loss.

Fantasy Impact

Miranda's last win was back on June 30. Since July, he has made it past the sixth inning in only one of his last seven starts. A chief reason is his severe fly-ball tendencies (52.2 FB%) which have lead to a noxious 12 home runs being hit over the 37.1 innings (2.91 HR/9) he has pitched in those starts. Although control has not been issue for Miranda up to now, the six walks on Sunday were the most the Cuban left-hander has allowed all year. Until he can right the ship, Miranda should, if at all possible, be avoided in all fantasy formats.
