Paul Blackburn picks up fifth win of the year on Wednesday

Oakland Athletics SP Paul Blackburn pitched 5 1/3 innings on Wednesday, striking out two, walking five, and allowing one hit for zero earned runs in the A's 4-2 win over the Mariners.

Fantasy Impact

Blackburn remains the best pitcher in the teams starting rotation at the moment as he maintains a perfect record of 5-0. The A's starting pitcher has an ERA of 1.70 and is worth rostering due to his ability to pick up wins but managers should be aware his strikeout numbers are lower as he has just 36 over 10 starts averaging 6.8 K/9.

Paul Blackburn strikes out five in no-decision Friday

Oakland Athletics SP Paul Blackburn pitched 4 2/3 innings on Friday, striking out five, walking two, and allowing six hits for two earned runs in the A's 4-2 win over the Angels.

Fantasy Impact

Blackburn maintains a phemonenal ERA on the season despite playing on a below .500 team as he boasts a 1.91 ERA. The A's starting pitcher has yet to lose a game this season and has a elite WHIP of 0.90 which is near the top of the league.

Paul Blackburn pitches over six innings in win Saturday afternoon

Oakland Athletics SP Paul Blackburn pitched 6 2/3 innings in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader, striking out three, walking two, and allowing five hits for one earned run in the A's 4-3 win over the Angels.

Fantasy Impact

Blackburn has been the best pitcher on the A's so far this season in terms of ERA as he an ERA of 1.67 so far this season. The starting pitcher also maintains an immaculate record sitting at 4-0 on the season and is well worth the roster spot despite playing on a rebuilding team.

Paul Blackburn ends A's losing streak of nine games Monday

Oakland Athletics SP Paul Blackburn pitched 6 2/3 innings on Monday, striking out three, and allowing four hits for zero earned runs in the A's 2-0 win over the Tigers.

Fantasy Impact

Blackburn has been absolutely phenomenal to begin the season as he continues to carry the Athletics team with his fourth win on the season and a now perfect record of 4-0. The A's starting pitcher has an ERA of 1.74 and seems to be unsolvable from the plate which has led to him finally closing a rather sad streak for the A's of nine straight losses. Blackburn should be rostered in every league type no matter the format or depth.

Paul Blackburn strikes out five Rays batsman on Tuesday

Oakland Athletics SP Paul Blackburn pitched 4 1/3 innings on Tuesday, striking out five, walking one, and allowing six hits for three earned runs in the A's 10-7 loss to the Rays.

Fantasy Impact

Blackburn's work ended up being all for not as the A's blew the game in the 10th inning allowing five runs to score. Regardless of the score, due to the A's pitcher not making five innings he would not have been eligible to receive the win anyway. Blackburn is one of only two A's pitchers that warrant roster consideration at the moment.
