"Ben Brown Struggles with Control Against Mets"

Ben Brown had a rough outing allowing two earned runs on three hits and five walks while striking out five over 4.2 innings in Thursday's 7-6 loss to the Mets.

Fantasy Impact

His inability to limit walks significantly hampered his performance, leading to an early exit after just 89 pitches. This season, Brown's ERA slightly worsened to 4.23, and his WHIP increased to 1.27, reflecting ongoing struggles with command. Despite a decent strikeout rate of 8.8 K/9, his elevated walk rate is a concerning trend for fantasy managers. Brown's high FIP of 3.32 suggests some bad luck, but his control issues need to be addressed to improve his fantasy viability.

Ben Brown battered in Boston blowout

Ben Brown was roughed up, allowing three earned runs on seven hits while striking out four over 3 2/3 innings in Saturday's 17-0 loss to the Red Sox.

Fantasy Impact

This outing inflated his ERA to 4.30 and WHIP to 1.17 for the season, which might raise eyebrows among fantasy managers. Despite a decent strikeout rate of 8.6 K/9 and a solid 3.26 FIP, Brown's performance today could be a red flag for those relying on him for consistent fantasy points. His inability to limit hits today, evidenced by a .306 BABIP, suggests potential volatility in his starts. Fantasy managers should monitor his next outings closely, as another shaky performance could hint at a trend rather than a blip.

Ben Brown Shines in Tight Cubs Victory

Ben Brown delivered a strong performance in the Cubs' narrow 3-2 win over the Diamondbacks on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

He allowed just one earned run on one hit and two walks while striking out four over six innings. This outing was a significant improvement and should help in lowering his slightly elevated ERA of 4.41. Brown's WHIP stands at a respectable 1.10 reflecting his ability to limit baserunners. Fantasy managers should consider Brown's potential for quality starts like this, particularly in deeper leagues or as a streaming option.

Ben Brown is being called up by the Chicago Cubs.

Fantasy Impact

Brown is the Cubs' number 10 prospect, and will seemingly take over for the injured Justin Steele in the starting rotation. He had a 4.27 ERA and 130 strikeouts in 92.2 innings in the minor leagues in 2023.
