Thomas Eshelman relieved Jorge Lopez on Friday after Lopez gave up eight runs in two innings. Eshelman only gave up two runs on six hits over four innings while striking out one. The Orioles lost, 10-5.
Eshelman finishes 2020 with a 3.89 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, and just 16 strikeouts in 34 and 2/3 innings. He will likely be on the Orioles' roster as a long reliever next year, but remains irrelevant in fantasy circles.
Thomas Eshelman started Tuesday's game against the Braves, pitching 3 and 1/3 innings. He gave up two runs on six hits and a walk while striking out four. The Orioles lost, 5-1, dropping his record to 3-1.
Eshelman is nothing more than a spot starter, and doesn't merit inclusion on fantasy rosters. His 4.13 ERA and 1.20 WHIP are fine, but he has just 15 strikeouts in 28+ innings.
Thomas Eshelman relieved Alex Cobb in the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Yankees. He pitched two innings, giving up one run on two hits and two walks while striking out two. The Orioles lost, 6-0.
Eshelman has solid ratios (3.96 ERA, 1.08 WHIP), but his 11 strikeouts in 25 innings means that he doesn't belong near any fantasy rosters.
Thomas Eshelman started the first game of Friday's twin bill against the Yankees. He gave up four runs (two earned) in 2 and 1/3 innings. He allowed three hits, one of which was a Gary Sanchez solo homer. He also walked three hitters while striking out one. He did not factor into the decision.
Eshelman now has a surprising 3.91 ERA and 1.00 WHIP, but with only nine strikeouts in 23 innings, he is not fantasy relevant. He will take on these same Yankees on the road in his next start.
Thomas Eshelman came in to replace the injured Wade LeBlanc in the first inning of Sunday's game against the Red Sox. He pitched 4 and 1/3 innings of shutout baseball, allowing just one runner via a walk. He struck out two in the 5-4 victory.
Eshelman should join the starting rotation for however long LeBlanc is hurt. Eshelman has a 2.75 ERA and 0.76 WHIP through 19 and 2/3 innings, but he only has eight strikeouts. Assuming he has a place in the rotation, he will take on the Blue Jays on the road in his next start.
