Jesus Luzardo tests positive for Coronavirus

Jesus Luzardo has tested positive for Coronavirus and will self isolate for 14 days per the MLB protocols.

Fantasy Impact

Luzardo has yet to report to summer camp and tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday. He will need to test negative twice before being able to join his teammates for spring training 2.0. Luzardo has secured a spot in the rotation and owned a 1.08 ERA across 8 1/3 innings in the Cactus League. It is unclear at this time if Luzardo will be ready by Opening Day.

Jesus Luzardo: status to join team is still 'pending'

A's manager Bob Melvin says Jesus Luzardo's status to join team workouts is still "pending."

Fantasy Impact

It's possible the team is still waiting the results of some COVID-19 tests. Mike Fiers has also been absent from the first weekend of summer camp. Assuming Luzardo joins the team soon he carries immense fantasy upside in a truncated season.

Jesus Luzardo strikes out eight in 3 1/3 innings Saturday

Jesus Luzardo was fantastic on Saturday, striking out eight batters in just 3 1/3 innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact

The 22-year-old gave up just two hits and a walk in this one. Luzardo appeared in six games for the A's last season, striking out 16 over 12 innings, allowing just two runs. He will likely be limited to around 140 innings this season but he should provide plenty of fantasy value whenever he is on the mound.

Jesus Luzardo throws three scoreless innings Sunday

Jesus Luzardo started for the A’s on Sunday against the Indians allowing one hit over three innings while striking out three.

Fantasy Impact

Luzardo missed some time last year with a lat strain, but the 22 year old prospect was impressive in relief as a September call-up. He features three above average pitches with his fastball, curve, and change. Luzardo will have an innings cap this year, but this will be the last year that you can draft him at this kind of a discount.

Jesus Luzardo throws two scoreless on Tuesday

Jesus Luzardo struck out two over two scoreless innings versus the Padres on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

The 22-year-old southpaw only allowed a single in his outing, which he then erased via a double play. Luzardo topped out at 97 mph with his fastball today. It is fair to speculate on how many innings fantasy owners will get out of him this season, but the young lefty should provide plenty of value whenever he toes the rubber. 120-125 innings seems like a reasonable projection as of now.
