Daniel Ponce de Leon takes loss in spot start Sunday

Daniel Ponce de Leon (1-2) took the loss Sunday against the Reds, allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits and one walk across four innings. He struck out two.

Fantasy Impact

Ponce de Leon was called up from Triple-A prior to the spot start, and completed four innings before being removed in the fifth without retiring a batter. Over 44.2 major league innings this season, Ponce de Leon has a 4.03 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, and 46:22 K:BB. He'll likely move to the bullpen moving forward.

Daniel Ponce de Leon takes loss Saturday

Daniel Ponce de Leon (1-1) took the loss Saturday against the Astros, allowing five runs on three hits and four walks over 2.1 innings. He did not record any strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact

Most of the damage against Ponce de Leon came after he'd left the game, as he was removed after loading the bases in the third inning, only to have Michael Wacha serve up a grand slam to Carlos Correa. Ponce de Leon now sports a 3.76 ERA and 44:21 K:BB in 40.2 innings. If the Cardinals decide to add rotation depth at the deadline, Ponce de Leon would be the most likely candidate to lose his spot.

Daniel Ponce de Leon: short outing in no-decision

Daniel Ponce de Leon allowed one run on three hits with four walks and three strikeouts across three innings against the Pirates on Monday. He did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact

Ponce de Leon only allowed one run, but was shaky with his control, prompting his early exit. Overall, he's 1-0 with a 2.82 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 44 strikeouts in 38.1 innings. He'll take on the Astros in his next start, scheduled for Saturday.

Daniel Ponce de Leon gives up eight hits versus Pittsburgh

Daniel Ponce de Leon received a no-decision on Wednesday versus the Pirates, allowing four runs on eight hits through 3 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Impact

The 27-year-old was coming off a fantastic outing versus Arizona last time out, so this one versus Pittsburgh is a bit of a let down. If Ponce de Leon stays in the rotation his next start will come against these same Pirates next week.

Daniel Ponce de Leon pitches well in spot start

Daniel Ponce de Leon allowed one run on three hits over 6.2 innings against the Diamondbacks on Friday. He struck out seven without walking a batter, and did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact

With Adam Wainwright a late scratch in this game, Ponce de Leon was called on to start on short notice. A solo homer surrendered to Christian Walker was his only blemish of the night. He now owns a 1.99 ERA and 38:11 K:BB in 31.2 innings this season, but will likely be shifted back to a long relief role moving forward.
