Michael Wacha lands on IL with right shoulder inflammation

Mets starter Michael Wacha was placed on the injured list with right shoulder inflammation Sunday, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

Fantasy Impact

Wacha went five innings and struck out nine batters against the Marlins two days ago, but it appears his right shoulder flared up at some point either during or immediately after that start. There is not yet a timetable for his return, but he's going to miss his next two turns through the rotation, at a minimum.

Michael Wacha allows four earned runs in loss to Marlins Friday

Mets starter Michael Wacha allowed four earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out nine over five innings in Friday's loss to the Miami Marlins.

Fantasy Impact

The nine strikeouts matched Wacha's combined output from his first two starts this season, but his ERA rose to 6.43now that he has allowed nine earned runs over his last nine innings. Wacha is currently scheduled to take on the Nationals at home in his next start, though fantasy owners might be better off streaming the veteran right-hander unless he starts to show more consistency.

Michael Wacha allows five earned runs in loss to Braves

Mets starter Michael Wacha allowed five earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out five over four innings in Saturday's loss to the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Impact

Wacha was impressive in his Mets debut against the Red Sox earlier in the week but was equally unimpressive against the Braves on Saturday. He is currently scheduled to face the Marlins at home in his next start.

Michael Wacha impresses in Mets debut

Mets starter Michael Wacha allowed one earned run on five hits and one walk while striking out four over five innings of work in Monday's win over the Boston Red Sox.

Fantasy Impact

Wacha's signature changeup looked to be in midseason form on Monday as he successfully navigated a deep Red Sox lineup to allow just one run en route to a win. Wacha is looking to bounce back from a 2019 campaign that saw him pitch to a 4.76 ERA. He'll look to continue his strong start when he takes on the Braves in Atlanta in his next outing.

MIchael Wacha building up as a starter

Michael Wacha is building up to be a member of the Mets’ starting rotation.

Fantasy Impact

Wacha has a clear path after Noah Syndergaard was diagnosed with a torn UCL. “I’ve just been preparing to come in an be a starter, and try to eat up as much innings as I can,” said Wacha. The 29-year-old owned a 4.76 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and a 104:55 K:BB across 126 2/3 innings for the Cardinals last season. Wacha doesn’t provide much fantasy upside and is currently 163rd among all starting pitchers in the latest expert consensus rankings.
