RP - CIN
Cincinnati Reds RP Luis Cessa pitched 2/3 of an inning on Thursday, walking one in the Reds' 4-2 win over the Guardians.
Cessa picked up his second win of the year as the Reds scored at the right time for the pitcher ultimately taking a lead in the eighth that would never be relinquished. The relief pitcher carries an ERA of 3.52 but he should not be rostered as he has no saves and only the two wins due to his lack of seeing high leverage opportunities as well as his low strikeout rate with just 11 strikeouts through 15 innings pitched.
Reds reliever Luis Cessa allowed two runs on three hits over one inning of work against the Brewers on Monday. He struck out a batter and managed to earn the win. Cincinnati defeated Milwaukee by a score of 10-5.
Cessa is 1-0 with a 4.15 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and .265 OBA through 13 innings of work this season. He has struck out 11 batters while walking just three. However, the 30-year-old isn't on the fantasy radar at the moment.
Reds starter Luis Cessa allowed three runs on five hits during the first inning of Thursday's game against the Dodgers. He was subsequently pulled before throwing a pitch in the second inning. Since Cincinnati tied the game before falling behind and ultimately losing, Cessa finished with a no-decision.

Luis Cessa was traded to the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday, alongside Justin Wilson.
Cessa has posted a very impressive 2.82 ERA this season over 38.1 innings with 31 strikeouts. He figures to fit right into a mid-to-late inning relief role in the Reds bullpen.
Luis Cessa agreed to a one-year, $1.05 million contract with the Yankees, avoiding arbitration.
Cessa had a solid 2020 campaign, posting a 3.32 ERA in over 20 innings of work. While not fantasy relevant, he figures to play a relatively large role in the Yankees' bullpen.
