Brandon Woodruff allows five runs in no decision Sunday

Brandon Woodruff allowed five runs on seven hits over 5.2 innings in the Brewers' 6-5 loss to the Dodgers on Sunday. He walked three and struck out six.

Fantasy Impact

Woodruff struggled with both his control and command today, walking three and leaving far too many pitches over the plate. He gave up four extra-base hits and two home runs in this game, and was fortunate not to take the loss. There is still good upside with Woodruff, but he hasn't been good enough to trust in fantasy. His next start comes Saturday at the Mets.

Brandon Woodruff picks up second win Tuesday

Brandon Woodruff allowed two runs on seven hits over 5.2 innings in the Brewers' 8-4 win over the Cardinals on Tuesday. He walked two and struck out six while improving to 2-1.

Fantasy Impact

This was Woodruff's best start of the season thus far, even if he couldn't get that last out for the quality start. Woodruff has been inching in the right direction through his first four starts, and should be rostered in most leagues for his upside. His next start comes Saturday at the Mets.

Brandon Woodruff fans seven in loss Wednesday

Brandon Woodruff allowed four runs on four hits over six innings in the Brewers' 4-2 loss to the Angels on Wednesday. He struck out seven and walked one while falling to 1-1.

Fantasy Impact

Woodruff was a little unlucky in this one, as he only allowed one extra-base hit and it didn't result in any runs scored. His control betrayed him in the third, as Woodruff hit and walked two straight batters and ended up loading the bases with no outs. Outside of that inning Woodruff pitched well, and he's shown some encouraging signs on the young season. Woodruff is worth hanging onto as an upside play. His next start comes Tuesday against the Cardinals.

Brandon Woodruff strikes out eight Friday

Brandon Woodruff allowed four runs on six hits over four innings in the Brewers' 13-10 win over the Cubs on Friday. He struck out eight and walked two in the no decision.

Fantasy Impact

A three-run home run to Daniel Descalso really ruined Woodruff's day, but the young right-hander still put up impressive strikeout numbers. He was also quite inefficient with his pitches, needing 98 pitches to get 12 outs. Woodruff has upside, but is still a work-in-progress. His next chance will come Wednesday against the Angels in Anaheim.

Brandon Woodruff picks up first win of the year Saturday

Brandon Woodruff allowed two runs on six hits over five innings in the Brewers' 4-2 win over the Cardinals on Saturday. He struck out five and walked one while improving to 1-0 on the year.

Fantasy Impact

While not the most dominant stat line, Woodruff racked up 14 swinging strikes on 100 pitches, including six with his four-seam fastball. He also hit 98.2 on the radar gun and averaged 96.1 MPH with his fastball. A heralded pitching prospect, Woodruff could be a nice up-and-coming arm this season. He'll take the hill again next Friday against the Cubs.
