Shane Baz announced as ALDS Game 2 starter

The Rays announced RHP Shane Baz will start Game 2 of the ALDS.

Fantasy Impact

Baz has pitched just 13 1/3 innings in the big leagues, but he's clearly one of the team's best starters right now. For as good as Tampa Bay was this year, their rotation wasn't that strong. Baz put up a 2.03 ERA with an 18:3 K:BB in three starts with the Rays. He'll face the winner of Tuesday's Red Sox/Yankees Wild Card showdown.

Shane Baz allows one run in no-decision on Saturday

Shane Baz didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 12-2 rout of the Yankees, giving up one run on one hit and two walks over 2 2/3 innings. He struck out four.

Fantasy Impact

Baz was pulled after just 51 pitches (28 strikes) with the Rays picking up a big lead. The 22-year-old rookie righty ends the regular season with 2.03 ERA and 18:3 K:BB through 13 1/3 innings since being called up on September 20.

Shane Baz picks up his second big league win

Shane Baz allowed three hits and a walk over 5 2/3 scoreless innings Sunday, striking out nine and earning a win over the Marlins.

Fantasy Impact

Baz has now won both his first two major league starts as the rookie has allowed just two runs over 10 2/3 innings with 14 strikeouts. Baz is lined up to take on the Yankees in a tough matchup in New York next weekend.

Shane Baz wins in his MLB debut on Monday

Shane Baz gave up two runs on two hits with no walks and five strikeouts in five innings to pick the win on Monday in a 6-4 victory for the Rays over the Blue Jays.

Fantasy Impact

Baz made his MLB debut on Monday and looked great on the mound for the Rays. The 22-year-old right-hander is considered one of the best prospects in baseball and should be rostered in most leagues. Baz is tentatively scheduled to face the Astros next week in his next matchup.

Shane Baz to make MLB debut on Monday vs Blue Jays

Rays top prospect RHP Shane Baz is expected to be recalled on Monday to make his MLB debut versus the Blue Jays.

Fantasy Impact

There were rumblings that Baz could debut this weekend, but it was later reported that he was scratched from Thursday's Triple-A start due to back spasms. However, he's apparently healthy enough to debut against Toronto this week. The matchup isn't a strong one, of course, which limits his fantasy appeal. Still, this is an exciting development for dynasty league managers. Baz was part of the package the Rays received in the infamous Chris Archer trade a few years ago.
