Cristian Javier wins again Saturday vs. Rays

Cristian Javier was excellent on Saturday in a 2-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. He tossed six shutout innings, allowing just two hits and two walks striking out seven.

Fantasy Impact

Javier will finish his 2022 season with a stellar 2.54 ERA to go with his 194 K's in just 148 2/3 innings. He has pitched far better than his 11-9 record suggests. Next season, be prepared to use an early-to-mid round pick if you want his services.

Cristian Javier is sharp in no-decision Sunday

Astros SP Cristian Javier was fantastic on Sunday. He tossed six shutout innings with eight strikeouts, and allowed just one hit in a 6-3 win over the Orioles in 11 innings.

Fantasy Impact

The Astros youngster continued to impress and lowered his ERA to 2.65 on the season. Unfortunately, Houston's bullpen blew his lead and he was saddled with a no-decision. His final start of the regular season will come next Monday against the Phillies.

Cristian Javier picks up 10th win of season Tuesday

Astros SP Cristian Javier pitched well in a 5-0 win over the Rays Tuesday. He lasted five shutout innings, allowing just one hit but did walk four.

Fantasy Impact

Javier had a tough time consistently finding the strike zone, but Tampa Bay couldn't get the meat of the bat on the ball outside of that. He finished with six K's in the win and improved to 10-9 on the season, lowering his ERA to 2.77. The 25-year-old will face the D'Backs next time out.

Cristian Javier impresses again in win over Tigers

Astros SP Cristian Javier dominated Wednesday in a start against the hapless Tigers offense in a 2-1 win. He tossed six shutout innings striking out eight along the way.

Fantasy Impact

Javier threw 64 of his 90 pitches for strikes, allowing just two hits without walking a batter. The 25-year-old has pitched far superior than his 9-9 record suggests. He lowered his ERA to 2.87 after this performance. Javier has been one of the best free agent pick ups in all of fantasy baseball this year and has likely earned himself an early-to-mid round draft status next season. He will look to notch his 10th win at Tampa Bay next week.

Cristian Javier let off the hook in no-decision Wednesday

Astros SP Cristian Javier pitched 5 1/3 innings, allowing three runs (one earned) on four hits and two walks in a 4-3 extra innings win. He left the game trailing but watched as the Astros battled back.

Fantasy Impact

The unearned runs certainly didn't help Javier's chances for a victory, as Christian Vazquez' error allowed them to come around and score. But on the bright side, Javier struck out eight and avoided the loss. He will try to keep the good times rolling against the Tigers next week.
