Jeff Samardzija struggles with command in Houston

Jeff Samardzija threw 97 pitches over 4 2/3 innings on Wednesday against the Astros. He struck out two batters and walked five. He allowed three earned runs on four hits, including a home run off the bat of George Springer.

Fantasy Impact

Samardzija's numbers are down across the board this year. His 6.5 K/9 ratio is his lowest in eight years, and he sports an unsightly 6.23 ERA to go along with a 1.64 WHIP. Still owned in 63% of CBS leagues, owners might want to consider exploring other options, as the 33 year-old hasn't won a game in over a month.

Jeff Samardzija settles down after tough start Thursday against Rockies

Jeff Samardzija allowed three runs early but settled in to make it into the seventh innings before being pulled for the bullpen. He allowed five hits, walked three and struck out three.

Fantasy Impact

Samardzija has yet to win since his first start back on April 20 after starting the season on the disabled list. In May, he has pitched 16-plus innings, allowing 13 earned runs. Thursday night was the longest he has gone in a game this season. He has a long way to go before earning back the trust of his fantasy owners.

Jeff Samardzija roughed up again

Jeff Samardzija allowed five runs on six hits and two walks with five strikeouts against the Pirates over 5 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Impact

It's been a rough start to the season for Samardzija. Unlike last year, his peripherals do not indicate that positive regression is coming. He's coming off an injury that delayed the start of his season, so that could explain it, but he has apparently lost the pinpoint control that he displayed last year while he continues to give up the long ball.

Jeff Samardzija gets chased early by long balls Monday

Jeff Samardzija allowed five runs on four hits and three walks while striking out three in a losing effort against the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday. All five runs came on a pair of home runs to Odubel Herrera and Cesar Hernandez.

Fantasy Impact

Samardzija has not been very sharp since his first start and is now 1-2 with a 6.62 ERA and 1.81 WHIP through his first four starts of the season. He will look to turn things around next time out when he faces the Pirates in Pittsburgh.
