Corbin Burnes obliterated in relief appearance Friday

Corbin Burnes allowed seven earned runs while recording two outs in relief in the Brewers' 12-8 loss to the Braves on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Burnes just can't stop giving up home runs, as he served up three in this outing and has already serving up a whopping 14 bombs in 27.1 innings, a 4.61 HR/9 rate. That ties him with David Hess and Trevor Cahill for most in the majors, and both Hess and Cahill have pitched over 40 innings. Burnes probably doesn't belong in the majors right now.

Corbin Burnes recalled from Triple-A

Corbin Burnes was been recalled from Triple-A San Antonio prior to Wednesday's game versus Colorado.

Fantasy Impact

The 24-year-old began the season in the Brewers' rotaion but was sent down in mid-April after struggling mightily. Burnes posted a 10.70 ERA in four starts, though he flashed his strikeout upside with 24 K's in 17 2/3 innings. In two starts at Triple-A Burnes through 7 2/3 scoreless innings while striking out 10.

Corbin Burnes optioned to minor leagues Friday

Brewers starting pitcher Corbin Burnes was sent down to Triple-A San Antonio on Friday, according to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Twitter.

Fantasy Impact

Burnes is a darling of the spin rate revolution and was excellent while pitching in relief for the Brewers last season, but he struggled out of the gate as a starter this year and has a 10.70 ERA and 2.15 WHIP through his firs four starts. He does have 24 strikeouts over his first 17 2/3 innings, however, so the Brewers hope that a trip back down to the minor leagues will help him work through whatever his current issues are.

Corbin Burnes struggles again in loss Wednesday

Corbin Burnes allowed five runs on nine hits over 3.1 innings in the Brewers' 6-3 loss to the Cardinals on Wednesday. He walked two and struck out three while falling to 0-2.

Fantasy Impact

The long ball woes continue for Burnes, who allowed two in this game and has now allowed 11 in four starts. Burnes now has an abominable 10.70 ERA on the year through 17.2 innings. Burnes cannot be trusted in fantasy right now. His next start comes Monday at St. Louis.

Corbin Burnes can't make it through five Friday

Corbin Burnes allowed five runs on nine hits over 4.1 innings in the Brewers' 8-5 win over the Dodgers on Friday. He walked two and struck out three in the no decision.

Fantasy Impact

Burnes also allowed three home runs in this one, and has allowed nine in his first three starts. Home runs have never been a problem for Burnes in the past, but the long ball has been his biggest problem in 2019 thus far. Burnes' issue has been poor fastball location. Eight of nine home runs have come off his fastball, and that's because Burnes has a tendency to catch too much plate with the pitch. His next start comes Wednesday against St. Louis, but Burnes isn't usable right now.
