Lance McCullers Jr. pitches well in final start of season Monday

Astros SP Lance McCullers Jr. looked sharp in a loss Monday. He tossed six innings, allowing one run on six hits and a walk, striking out six in a 3-1 loss to the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact

McCullers Jr. gave up a solo home run to Kyle Schwarber in the first inning. That's hard to be angry at. Outside of that, the veteran righty pitched really well, scattering baserunners the rest of his time on the mound. He finished the 2022 season 4-2 with a stellar 2.27 ERA across eight starts this season. He pitched well enough to garner mixed league attention next season.

Lance McCullers Jr. notches win over Rays

Astros SP Lance McCullers Jr. tossed seven strong innings in a 5-2 win over the Rays Wednesday. He allowed just two runs on six hits and two walks, striking out eight in the victory.

Fantasy Impact

McCullers Jr. has been a nice addition to the Astros rotation since he returned from the 60-day IL last month. He is 4-1 with a 2.38 ERA across his seven starts this year. The Astros have an embarrassment of riches in their rotation. The question is, who will Dusty Baker move to the pen come playoff time. But that's neither here nor there for fantasy managers. He should help them out one more time this year in a start against the D'Backs.

Lance McCullers Jr. strikes out 11 in no-decision Thursday

Astros SP Lance McCormick Jr. was excellent on Thursday, striking out 11 batters in a no-decision vs. the Athletics. He last six innings, allowing two runs on two hits and four walks.

Fantasy Impact

McCormick Jr. has been very good since his season debut last month. But Thursday was certainly his most dominant performance. The walks were the only reason he did not go further into the game. The Astros righty faces a tougher test next time out against the Rays on the road.
