Josh Fleming allows four runs in loss to Boston

Josh Fleming allowed four runs, eight hits, and zero walks over 4 2/3 innings of work against the Red Sox on Wednesday. He struck out four batters but was charged with the loss as Tampa Bay ultimately fell to Boston by a score of 6-3 in the regular season finale.

Fantasy Impact

Fleming dropped to 2-5 with a 6.43 ERA, 1.89 WHIP, and .348 OBA through 10 games (three starts) in 2022. He added 7.46 K/9 and 3.09 BB/9 along the way.

Josh Fleming (oblique) placed on IL

Josh Fleming has been placed on the IL with a right oblique strain.

Fantasy Impact

Fleming felt some tightness Monday against the Red Sox, and manager Kevin Cash said that they are hoping his early exit from that game will prevent him from missing extended time. Fleming has struggled this season, sporting a 6.83 ERA and 8.20 K/9. On the bright side, his xERA is at 4.23 and he has been very good when sent down to AAA, but there is still something he needs to figure out to be a reliable fantasy asset.

Josh Fleming roughed up in loss to Red Sox

Rays reliever Josh Fleming allowed four runs (three earned) on eight hits through five innings of relief work against the Red Sox on Monday afternoon. He struck out four batters but was charged with the loss as Tampa Bay ultimately fell to Boston by a score of 4-0.

Fantasy Impact

Fleming relieved opener Jalen Beeks and stayed in the game for longer than anyone expected. He totaled 93 pitches, working out of some jams while allowing runs in others. He is now 2-4 with a 6.17 ERA, 1.89 WHIP, and .333 OBA through 23 1/3 innings this season.

Josh Fleming called up on Monday

Josh Fleming has been called up by Tampa Bay on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Fleming has been brought up from Triple-A Durham and should be active for the Rays game against the Red Sox. He'll likely play a middle reliever role and pitch through some bulk innings for the Rays going forward. He has been pretty mediocre through six appearances so far this season in the majors, producing a 2-3 record with a 6.38 ERA and 1.96 WHIP with 17 strikeouts.

Josh Fleming battered in loss to Twins on Sunday

Josh Fleming allowed six runs (five earned) on five hits and three walks over 3 2/3 innings on Sunday against the Twins. He struck out one and took the loss, falling to 2-3.

Fantasy Impact

Fleming now has a 6.32 ERA and 1.85 WHIP, and whether he acts as the starter or just piggybacks an opener, he's simply not helping fantasy managers at the moment. For the second straight year, he ranks in the bottom eight percent of the league in maximum exit velocity allowed, and his velocity and spin rate on his fastball are among the lowest in the league. He's scheduled to start against the Mariners next, but there's no reason to consider him for fantasy purposes.
