Not great news for Means, but keep hanging onto him in all leagues. Sure, the ratios of a 2.28 ERA and 0.83 WHIP look a bit unsustainable given his .192 BABIP and 100% LOB%. However, when healthy, he still holds must-start pitcher status.
John Means allowed two runs on three hits and one strikeout.
Means served up home runs to Cesar Hernandez and Harold Ramirez before leaving with shoulder discomfort. Fantasy managers need to stay updated because this is a developing situation.
