Mark Leiter Jr.
RP - TOR - MiLB
Leiter gave up eight runs (four earned) and seven hits in five innings of work while earning the loss.
Leiter showed some promise in his last two starts only giving up three runs while putting up good strikeout totals. He came back to earth this start against a modest San Diego offense. He can be safely avoided at this time.
Mark Leiter pitched six innings, gave up no runs, on three hits with five strikeouts against the Diamondbacks. Leiter also picked up his first career hit Friday.
Leiter's ERA now sits at a modest 3.60 on the year. Used primarily as a long reliever this season, Leiter was forced to make his first start of his career Friday. Leiter has been good at limiting hits as batters have hit just .159 off of him this season. Despite this, he is not a recommended pickup in most fantasy leagues.
