Caleb Killian was rocked on the mound for the Cubs Saturday, allowing seven runs on 10 hits while also walking two and striking out four in just 3 1/3 innings in a 7-6 loss to the Marlins.
Killian had no answer for the Miami bats Saturday, allowing an atrocious .667 BABIP on the day. The 25-year-old is not a viable option in any format for fantasy managers and could be sent back down to Triple-A before his next potential start for manager David Ross.
Caleb Kilian pitched 2 1/3 innings, allowing three hits, five earned runs, five walks, and registered three strikeouts. He earned the loss Monday in Pittsburgh.
Kilian is 0-2 in his first three career starts this year. The 25-year-old has a 10.32 ERA, 2.03 WHIP, 7.15 K/9, and a 9.53 BB/9. The Cubs may end up sending Kilian down to reset after these starts. Fantasy manager should stay away for now.
Caleb Kilian pitched four innings, allowing five hits, five earned runs, and five walks. He did not record a strikeout and earned the loss Wednesday against the Padres.
Kilian has made two starts this season for the Cubs and neither has gone particularly well. He is 0-1 with a 8.00 ERA in nine innings pitched this season. The 25-year-old is still a top pitching prospect for the Cubs and will likely get better as he gets more starts at the big league level.
Caleb Kilian will be called up to start Wednesday's game against the Padres.
The Cubs lost both Marcus Stroman and Wade Miley to the IL over the weekend, so they will look to one of their top prospects to fill the void. Kilian showed some flashes of brilliance in his debut against St.Louis, striking out 6 in 5 innings. It's unclear if he will stay up with the Cubs for multiple starts, but he could be an interesting name to keep an eye on if he does stick around.
