Jacob Faria is having an impressive spring

Jacob Faria allowed an earned run on a hit and a walk over three innings in a 10-4 Grapefruit League win over the Pirates on Sunday. He also recorded a strikeout and now has a 2.70 ERA and 0.75 WHIP through three spring appearances.

Fantasy Impact

Faria had a disappointing 2018 season as he dealt with an oblique injury and could not get betters out and finished with a 5.40 ERA and 1.43 WHIP. Faria is a candidate to bounce back and has been going undrafted in many fantasy drafts. Owners should keep Faria on their watch lists as he could help out staffs if he has turned things around.

Jacob Faria’s struggles continue

Jacob Faria allowed three runs in 2 1/3 innings taking the loss against the Yankees. He gave up four hits and a walk while striking out two. He raised his season ERA to 5.40.

Fantasy Impact

Since Faria's return from Triple-A it has been disaster. Since his return Faria owns a 9.82 ERA, 1.91 WHIP and four strikeouts in 7.1 innings. There is no way to be certain what is the cause of Faria's issues but there must be a mental component. He will be a late round flyer in 2019 after an injury riddled 2018.

Jacob Faria optioned to Triple-A Durham

Jacob Faria has been optioned down to the Rays Triple-A affiliate, the Durham Bulls.

Fantasy Impact

It was shocking to see this news after the game on Wednesday. The team wanted to activate Tommy Pham from the DL so Faria became the casualty most likely to go down for one start and help stretch him out some more. He will be back with the club when rosters expand on September 1st, if not sooner.

Jacob Faria logs first start since his return from the DL

Jacob Faria allowed one run in 3 1/3 innings against the Yankees on Wednesday. He gave up three hits and two walks while striking out three. He lowered his season ERA to 4.84.

Fantasy Impact

Faria looked good in his first start since returning from the DL. It is a positive sign that not only the Rays think he is ready to see more pitches and get a start but also that he did not receive an opener. If Faria can find his 2017 form down the stretch he would become a must add player. He should be a two-start pitcher next week with two home matchups against the Royals and the Red Sox.

Jacob Faria pitches three scoreless innings in relief

Jacob Faria pitched three scoreless innings against the Blue Jays on Friday. He allowed three hits and a walk while striking out three. He lowered his season ERA to 4.97.

Fantasy Impact

Faria was drafted in many fantasy leagues this season. He had a lot of potential and could not deliver. He is not worth the add at this time. He will continue to pitch out of the bullpen and unlike some others he does not seem to have a set day for work.
