Patrick Sandoval stumbles again in Angels' defeat

Patrick Sandoval struggled mightily in Friday's 10-4 loss to the Guardians, allowing eight earned runs on six hits and four walks while striking out four over just 3 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Impact

This performance continues a concerning trend for Sandoval, whose season ERA ballooned to 5.60 and WHIP worsened to 1.55. Despite a decent strikeout rate of 9.4 K/9, his high BABIP of .350 and escalating ERA suggest that hitters are consistently making solid contact against him. Fantasy managers should be wary of relying on Sandoval in their starting rotations, as his high ERA and WHIP are likely to be a drag on those categories. His ability to strike out batters remains a small silver lining, but it's overshadowed by his overall ineffectiveness this season.

Patrick Sandoval's solid start not enough in Angels' loss

Patrick Sandoval turned in a quality start but couldn't secure a win as the Angels fell 3-2 to the Rangers on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

He allowed one earned run on three hits and three walks while striking out five over six innings. Despite the strong outing, Sandoval's season has been marred by inconsistency, as evidenced by his elevated 4.59 ERA and 1.47 WHIP through 10 starts. His 9.4 K/9 and 3.18 FIP suggest some underlying skills, but his high BABIP of .361 indicates he's been somewhat unlucky. Fantasy managers should view this performance as a positive step, but given his overall season struggles, he remains a risky play in most formats.

Patrick Sandoval Shines in Shutout Against Pirates

Patrick Sandoval delivered on the mound Tuesday, tossing seven scoreless innings while allowing just three hits and one walk with seven strikeouts in a 9-0 victory over the Pirates.

Fantasy Impact

After an inconsistent April, Sandoval has gotten into a nice rhythm here in May. Over two starts so far this month, the lefty has allowed just two runs on seven hits while racking up 17 strikeouts over 12 innings. Perhaps the most important factor for Sandoval has been his improved control, as he's walked just three batters combined between the two outings.

Sandoval Strikes Out 10, But Angels Fall Short

Patrick Sandoval delivered a mixed performance in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact

He allowed two earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out 10 over five innings. Despite the high strikeout count, Sandoval's season has been marred by inefficiency, evidenced by a bloated 5.91 ERA and 1.69 WHIP through seven starts. His 10.69 K/9 continues to offer some fantasy upside, particularly in formats that reward strikeouts heavily. However, his high ERA and WHIP make him a risky play in most leagues. Fantasy managers should consider matchups carefully before slotting him into their starting lineup, as his current form suggests volatility.

Patrick Sandoval stumbles again in Angels' defeat

Patrick Sandoval struggled in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Twins, surrendering three earned runs on nine hits while striking out four across 5 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Impact

The left-hander did not issue any walks, but his inability to limit hits continued a troubling trend this season. Sandoval's season ERA now sits at an inflated 6.33, with a WHIP of 1.78, reflecting ongoing struggles in his command and susceptibility to allowing base runners. His high BABIP of .390 suggests some bad luck, yet the consistent contact by opponents indicates real issues. Despite a decent strikeout rate of 9.3 K/9, his effectiveness is marred by high earned runs and hits allowed, making him a risky fantasy option in all but the deepest of leagues.
