Colin Rea gets knocked around Saturday

Colin Rea started the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cardinals, giving up four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two in just two innings. Of those five hits, two were homers by Paul DeJong and Tyler O'Neill. The Cubs lost, 5-1, dropping Rea's record to 1-1.

Fantasy Impact

Rea continues to pitch a lot for the Cubs despite his general ineffectiveness. For the season, he has a 5.79 ERA and 1.21 WHIP to go with 10 strikeouts in 14 innings. He is not fantasy relevant.

Colin Rea yields three runs in Saturday's start

Colin Rea allowed three runs on four hits and no walks while striking out none across three 1/3 innings in Saturday's 6-5 loss to the Brewers. He did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact

Rea cruised the first three innings before running into trouble in the fourth. He surrendered three runs on three hits before exiting. Rea will stick in the rotation for now and is scheduled to start Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Colin Rea 'well-positioned' to capitalize as Cubs' fifth starter

Colin Rea is "well-positioned to capitalize" as the Cubs' fifth starter as Jose Quintana underwent thumb surgery on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Quintana underwent thumb surgery on Thursday and is expected to be sidelined at least two weeks. His injury opens up an opportunity in the Cubs' rotation. Yu Darvish, Jon Lester, Kyle Hendicks and Tyler Chatwood occupy the top four spots. Adbert Alzolay, Alec Mills and Rea will compete for the fifth spot in the rotation. Rea owned a 3.95 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 120 strikeouts across 148 innings in Triple-A last season.

Colin Rea allows three runs over five innings on Sunday

Colin Rea pitched five innings against the Dodgers on Sunday, allowing three runs on three hits and two walks. He struck out three and did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact

Rea doesn't light the world on fire, but it's rare that he gets hit extremely hard. Given his low strikeout rate and mediocre numbers, he's a low-end NL-only starter. Mainly, he's a guy you can use when you're desperate to keep up on innings without blowing up your season-long pitching numbers.

Colin Rea flirts with no-hitter in win over the Mets

Colin Rea threw 6 2/3 no-hit innings against the Mets on Thursday before giving up a single to Yoenis Cespedes. Rea wound up going eight innings and allowing one run on three hits, striking out five. He is now 3-1 on the season.

Fantasy Impact

Rea was very impressive in outdueling Jacob deGrom, and it really looked like he was finally going to break the Padres' jinx on no-hitters. Rea now sits with a 3.82 ERA and 1.33 WHIP with a middling strikeout rate. Despite the strong start, he's not worthy of mixed league consideration.
