Stewart owns a career 6.05 ERA across 105 2/3 innings in his four seasons in the majors. He confirmed the news on his personal twitter account. Stewart will look to latch onto another team.

This wasn’t an ideal start for anyone who streamed Stewart in an NL-only league or in DFS. Steer clear if he gets the nod this weekend at Coors Field.
Brock Stewart received a no-decision on Wednesday night in Atlanta, allowing two runs over four innings of work.
Stewart allowed six baserunners and struck out just one. This was only his second start of the year after making his first six appearances of 2017 out of the bullpen. Unless the 25-year-old begins to show an uptick in strikeout percentage he won't be worth streaming in fantasy baseball. Stewart has just 13 K's through 20 2/3 innings.
Brock Stewart allowed five unearned runs in 3 2/3 innings on Wednesday night versus the Twins, walking one and striking out two.
It's a bizarre stat line for the 25-year-old. This was his first start of 2017 and in 16 2/3 innings between starting and relieving this year he has yet to surrender a run. Fantasy players will need to see more before he's on the streaming radar.
Brock Stewart allowed five hits (two home runs), two earned runs, walked one, and struck out six in five innings Saturday against the Arizona Diamondbacks. 53-of-83 pitches were thrown for strikes.

He's gone five innings in all three starts, allowed three total earned runs, and struck out 15 in 15 innings.
