Mason Black struggles again in rocky outing

Mason Black allowed four earned runs on six hits while striking out two over three innings in Friday's win against the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact

This performance did little to alleviate concerns about Black's rocky start to the season, as his ERA climbed further to an unsettling 7.71, accompanied by a bloated 1.97 WHIP. The lack of control and high hit rate he's exhibiting, evidenced by a .375 BABIP, suggests that hitters are consistently finding ways to capitalize on his offerings. Fantasy managers should be wary of relying on Black in their lineups, as his current form and underlying metrics like a 7.03 FIP indicate potential ongoing struggles. His role in fantasy rosters should be limited to a streaming option in favorable matchups at best, until he shows signs of substantial improvement.

Mason Black shows modest improvement in win

Mason Black pitched 4 1/3 innings, allowing one earned run on four hits and two walks while striking out two in the Giants' 5-1 victory over the Reds on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

This outing was a slight step forward for Black, who has struggled with a high ERA and WHIP early in the season. His performance on Saturday showed some control improvements, but the low strikeout total and short outing highlight ongoing challenges. Despite the Giants securing a win, Black's fantasy value remains limited by his high ERA (6.23) and WHIP (1.96), coupled with a modest strikeout rate (6.2 K/9). Fantasy managers should continue to monitor his progress, but he remains a risky play in most formats.

Mason Black Stumbles in 2024 Debut

Mason Black struggled mightily in the first start of his career, allowing five earned runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out four over 4.1 innings in Monday's 6-1 loss to the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact

This outing did little to inspire confidence. Fantasy managers should be wary of using Black in their lineups until he shows signs of improvement or stabilization in his metrics.
