Vince Velasquez strikes out six in no-decision Saturday

Phillies pitcher Vince Velasquez allowed one earned run on two hits and three walks while striking out six over 5 1/3 innings in Saturday's no-decision against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Impact

Velasquez was in line for the victory on Saturday before the Philadelphia bullpen imploded. Known for his inconsistency, Velasquez now sports a 4.18 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, and 30 strikeouts over 23 2/3 innings. His next start is currently scheduled to come against the Blue Jays in Toronto.

Vince Velazquez will start on Saturday

Phillies manager Joe Girardi stated that Vince Velazquez will stay in the Phillies rotation for at least one more turn and start Saturday night in Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact

Girardi made this decision after Velazquez pitched a great game against the Milwaukee Brewers, throwing six innings while giving up four hits and one run.

Vince Velasquez has solid outing in Monday's win

Vince Velasquez went six innings, allowing one run, and struck out six in Monday's win over Milwaukee.

Fantasy Impact

Velasquez now owns a 4.91 ERA over 18.1 innings pitched. While he can provide for fantasy managers in the strikeout department, he is also very inconsistent. His starting role is also not guaranteed, as he has mostly come out of the bullpen in 2021. However, Velazquez certainly did enough to earn himself another start the next time around the rotation.

Vince Velasquez allows three runs in Wednesday's no-decision

Vince Velasquez allowed three runs on five hits and two walks in 4 1/3 innings. The right-hander stuck out five and now holds a 6.57 ERA

Fantasy Impact

Velasquez allowed multiple home runs for the second straight start. His previous three appearances of 2021 were out of the bullpen. With mixed results to begin the year, it's hard to trust Velasquez, even as a streamer.

Vince Velasquez allows two runs in no-decision Friday

Phillies pitcher Vince Velasquez allowed two earned runs on five hits and one walk while striking out four over four innings in a no-decision against the Rockies in Colorado Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Velasquez has had an up-and-down career with the Phillies, and he has never been able to turn plus stuff into consistent success. He is likely headed back to the bullpen but could see more spot starts in the near future.
