RP,SP - STL
Cardinals starter Jake Woodford pitched exceptionally well on Tuesday, allowing just two hits and a walk while striking out five across five scoreless innings in a 2-1 win over the Brewers.
Woodford picked up just his third win of the season with a solid performance, going toe-to-toe with Brandon Woodruff while helping the Cardinals win their 10th consecutive game. Woodford now sports a 3.92 ERA and 1.33 WHIP overall this season. He'll face the Cubs on Sunday at Wrigley Field.
Jake Woodford started for St. Louis against the Mets on Tuesday, pitching four innings (61 pitches) while surrendering four hits, two runs, and two walks and also failing to record a strikeout.
After spending the majority of the season as a middle reliever, Woodford simply isn't stretched out enough to handle a starter's workload, as he has been consistently pitching between three and five innings per start. With a 4.30 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, low strikeout totals, and an inability to pitch deep into games, Woodford offers virtually no fantasy value.
Jake Woodford pitched effectively over four innings on Thursday afternoon, limiting the Dodgers to three hits, a run, and two walks while striking out three in a no-decision.
A two-on, two-out RBI single by Trea Turner in the third inning was the only damage Woodford allowed. The 24-year-old owns a 4.28 ERA and 1.39 WHIP on the season, mostly out of the bullpen. With that said, he has not yet completed six innings in a start this season. He'll draw a start against the Mets next week and likely isn't stretched out enough to be considered a viable fantasy option.
Cardinals right-hander Jake Woodford was blasted for seven hits, seven runs (five earned), and a walk in just three innings in a loss to the Twins on Saturday. He added three strikeouts as well.
The big blow was a three-run homer by catcher Ryan Jeffers in the third inning. The 24-year-old has pitched out of the bullpen for the majority of the season before making a few starts for the Cardinals recently due to all the injuries in their starting rotation (Flaherty, Mikolas, Carlos Martinez). Woodford now owns a 5.08 ERA on the season and isn't a recommended fantasy option.
Cardinals right-hander Jake Woodford allowed seven hits, three earned runs, and two walks while striking out two across five innings in a loss to the Reds on Saturday night.
Woodford threw 88 pitches (57 strikes) and served up a two-run double to Jesse Winker and a solo home run to Joey Votto. Woodford now owns a mediocre 4.25 ERA and 1.44 WHIP on the season, predominantly in a relief role. He's tentatively lined up for a home matchup against the Twins next weekend.
