Framber Valdez gets rocked again in loss Friday

Framber Valdez was knocked around by the Tampa Bay Rays Friday in a 7-3 loss. He was charged with six runs on nine hits and three walks in just 5 1/3 innings.

Fantasy Impact

Valdez had pitched a single-season MLB record 25 consecutive quality starts and has been one of the best pitchers in baseball this year. However, Friday marked his second straight start where he was hit hard. His record dropped to 16-6 in what was likely his last start this year. The Astros will hope the talented lefty can get back on track in the postseason.

Framber Valdez sets ML record in win over A's Sunday

Framber Valdez once again was sharp in an 11-2 win over the Athletics Sunday. He tossed six innings allowing two runs on four hits while striking out seven.

Fantasy Impact

This was Valdez' 25th consecutive quality start this season. That is a new Major League record for consecutive starts within a single season. He trailed Bob Gibson and Jacob deGrom, who each had 26, for the most overall spanning multiple seasons. The young talented lefty will get his shot to tie that mark against the Orioles next time out.

Framber Valdez not at his best takes loss vs. Rangers Tuesday

Framber Valdez struggled with his command on Tuesday, walking four batters. He ultimately took his first loss since July 9th, allowing four runs (two earned) in 6 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Impact

There is some good news for fantasy owners though. Valdez struck out 11 batters, the second most in a game in his career. More importantly, with two of the runs being unearned, the left-hander's streak of consecutive quality starts extended to 23. That's already an American League record and record for any lefty. The major league record is 26 held by Bob Gibson and Jacob deGrom. He will try to make it 24 straight against the Tigers next week.

Framber Valdez incredible streak continues in win Tuesday

Framber Valdez pitched another stellar game Tuesday. He lasted eight strong innings, allowing two runs on seven hits without walking a batter in a 4-2 win over the Rangers.

Fantasy Impact

Valdez also struck out eight in the start. This marked his 22nd consecutive quality start. That set both a franchise record and the record for most consecutive quality starts for a left-handed pitcher since earned runs became official in 1913. Yeah, he has been that good. The Major League record is held by Bob Gibson and Jacob deGrom at 26. Valdez will look for number 23 next time out against these same Rangers.
