Jeff Samardzija receives no-decision

Jeff Samardzija threw seven innings of three-run ball in Wednesday night's extra innings loss to the Braves, allowing six hits while striking out eight and walking none.

Fantasy Impact

Samardzija continues to pitch well for San Francisco, but the rest of the team isn't doing him any favors in the win column. He has been particularly dominant following a rough April, despite his 4.74 ERA for the season. Keep putting Samardzija in your fantasy lineups and continue to reap the rewards.

Jeff Samardzija struggles in Coors

Jeff Samardzija took the loss on Friday night in Colorado, allowing eight runs on 11 hits over six innings. Samardzija also struck out four and walked one.

Fantasy Impact

There wasn't much Samardzija could do in this one, as the ball was flying all over the place. He did his best effort to help himself, launching a two-run homer in the fifth inning. It wasn't enough, however, and Samardzija fell to 2-9 on the year. That record does not come close to indicating how well he has pitchedthis year, and this rough outing actually presents a good buy low opportunity.

Jeff Samardzija posts quality start in loss

Jeff Samardzija allowed three runs over six innings on Saturday afternoon. He also allowed four hits, walked one, and struck out six.

Fantasy Impact

Unfortunately for Samardzija the Giants' offense couldn't help him out. The loss dropped his record to 2-8 on the season, but he has pitched much better than his record would indicate. He's a must start option moving forward.

Jeff Samardzija dominant on Monday

Jeff Samardzija looked great in Monday night's win over the Brewers, pitching 7 2/3 innings of two-run ball (one earned). Samardzija struck out 10, walked none, and gave up just six hits.

Fantasy Impact

The win improved the right hander's record to 2-7 on the year, though that is not indicative of how he's pitched. Neither is his 4.29 ERA. Samardzija has been on an absolute roll as of late and should be started in fantasy lineups whenever he's pitching due to the massive strikeout potential. Keep rolling him out for however long this hot streak lasts.

Jeff Samardzija falls to 1-7

Jeff Samardzija allowed three runs over four innings of work on Tuesday night against the Nationals. He gave up nine hits, walked none, and struck out five.

Fantasy Impact

Samardzija has been pitching very well in the month of May, so this outing came as a bit of a surprise. However, he still possesses an elite K/BB ratio this month so the 1-7 record is a bit misleading.
