Jesus Luzardo fired six shutout innings in Monday's 4-0 win over the Braves, allowing only four hits and a walk while racking up 12 strikeouts.
Luzardo cruised down the stretch of his breakout campaign. The young lefty compiled an excellent 1.82 ERA and 35 strikeouts across his final 24 2/3 innings of season, giving him some great marks across the board for the year. His 4-7 record should not fool anybody. Luzardo should be a highly-coveted hurler in dynasty formats and redraft leagues in 2023.
Jesus Luzardo worked six innings in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Mets, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out six.

The young lefty is putting together a strong finish to what could certainly be considered a breakout campaign.

Luzardo had the swing-and-miss stuff working Wednesday night, as he finished with double-digit punchouts for the second time in 16 starts this year. The young lefty has now pitched to a 3.91 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 29-to-7 K/BB ratio across 23 innings in September. Luzardo is set to take the mound next Wednesday against the Mets.
Jesus Luzardo worked six innings in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Nationals, giving up two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out six.
Luzardo got roughed up by the Mets in his previous outing, so Friday's quick bounce back was encouraging. The young lefty now sports a solid 3.75 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 27.7-percent strikeout rate through 15 starts in what has really become somewhat of a breakout year for him. Luzardo will look to continue the good work Wednesday versus the Cubs.
Jesus Luzardo lasted just 3 1/3 innings in Sunday's 9-3 loss to the Mets, allowing five runs on six hits and three walks while striking out three.
Luzardo was not fooling the Mets hitters at all in this one. The young lefty surrendered more earned runs Sunday than in any of his other 14 starts on the season, catapulting his ERA for the year up nearly half of a point in the process. He was coming off of a very strong start in Philadelphia prior to this outing. Luzardo will hope to put this one behind him and regain his previous form for a favorable matchup with the Nationals on Friday.
