Framber Valdez shines in Saturday's start

Framber Valdez was impressive in Saturday's start against the Athletics, tossing seven innings of one-run ball while striking out nine.

Fantasy Impact

Valdez gave up two runs but just one was earned. He also allowed seven hits and one walk as he unfortunately took the loss. The 26-year-old now has a 2.04 ERA on the season and should be immediately picked up in most leagues. Start with with confidence in his next outing against the Mariners.

Framber Valdez shines out of the bullpen for Houston

Framber Valdez pitched well on Sunday out of the bullpen, giving up just an unearned run over 6 1/3 innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact

Valdez struck out eight, walked one, and allowed five hits. He followed a brutal Josh James start in this one and should continue getting chances to prove himself in the rotation. Valdez has given up three earned runs in 10 2/3 innings on the year.

Framber Valdez pitches into the fifth inning against Dodgers

Framber Valdez allowed three runs (two earned) on four hits over 4 1/3 innings in Tuesday's start against the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact

Valdez struck out two and walked one while picking up the loss. The 26-year-old southpaw makes for a fine back-end starter for the Astros but his ground ball tendencies leave a lot to be desired for fantasy purposes. He can be left on waivers during his next start against the Diamondbacks.

Framber Valdez wins Astros' fifth starter job

Framber Valdez will pitch the Astros' fifth game of the season.

Fantasy Impact

The 26-year-old lefty has flashed at times throughout his big league career but ultimately has too spotty of a track record to recommend for fantasy purposes right away. Valdez put up a 5.68 ERA and a 1.67 WHIP last year. Jose Urquidy's absence at summer camp opened up the spot for him.

Framber Valdez gives up four runs on Tuesday

Framber Valdez lasted 3 2/3 innings on Tuesday against the Mets, giving up four runs on four hits.

Fantasy Impact

Valdez struck out two and walked one in the outing. Even with Justin Verlander set to begin the year on the injured list, Valdez will likely open the season in Triple-A. However, he could be next in line for a rotation spot should Josh James or Austin Pruitt falter.
