RHP Seth Frankoff took a loss on Saturday when he surrendered seven runs on seven hits with four walks and five strikeouts over five innings in the D-Backs' 7-4 loss to the Cardinals.
The Cardinals got things going in the top of the first inning with a Yadier Molina RBI single. Another Molina single, Tyler O'Neill double, and Justin Williams RBI groundout led to a 6-0 Cards lead after three innings. O'Neill then capped off the rout when he clubbed a solo home run in the fifth. Frankoff managed to strike out five on the day but he issued four free passes, which didn't help matters. He now owns a 9.22 ERA, 1.90 WHIP, and 11:9 K/BB ratio over 13 2/3 innings (three starts). He's slated to face the Brewers on the road in his next turn and should be avoided at all costs for fantasy purposes.
RHP Seth Frankoff took the loss on Friday when he surrendered five runs on seven hits with one walk and two strikeouts in the Diamondbacks' 7-1 loss to the Rockies.
Frankoff was victimized by the long ball on Friday as Ryan McMahon tagged him for a two-run blast in the first inning before Raimel Tapia did the same in the second. His day was done after 68 pitches and five earned runs. He now owns a 7.27 ERA and 1.73 WHP after two starts (8 2/3 innings). He's slated to face the Giants at home in his next start but he should be avoided for fantasy purposes in that one.
RHP Seth Frankoff surrendered two runs on three hits with four walks and four strikeouts over 4 2/3 innings as the D-Backs pounded the Nationals 11-4 on Saturday.
Frankoff got the start, replacing Zac Gallen in the rotation. It was the 32-year-old reliever's first career start. He pitched well enough to keep the D-Backs in the game, only allowing a pair of runs over his 4 2/3 innings. It's unclear how long he's going to remain in the rotation but he's not recommended as a streaming option if he lines up against the Dodgers in his next probable start.
