Wade LeBlanc left his outing on Thursday against the Pirates after just two innings. He left due to left elbow pain.
LeBlanc surrendered three runs on three hits, one walk, and struck out one in his two innings pitched. He's recorded a 4.41 ERA and 1.49 WHIP in 18 games this season. It is unknown when he'll be back.
Cardinals veteran left-hander Wade LeBlanc pitched six strong innings on Thursday, allowing just three hits, two earned runs, and three walks in a no-decision against the Braves. LeBlanc struck out just one batter as well.
LeBlanc allowed an RBI single to Freddie Freeman in the third inning before serving up a solo home run to Joc Pederson in the fourth inning. Thursday marked the first time since joining the Cardinals that LeBlanc has completed six innings. Since arriving in St. Louis, the 36-year-old veteran has compiled a 3.12 ERA and 1.41 WHIP in seven starts. He’ll face the Pirates his next time out.
Wade LeBlanc pitched 5 2/3 innings while allowing just six hits, an earned run, and two walks to go with three strikeouts in a no-decision against the Twins on Friday night.
An RBI single from Andrelton Simmons was the only damage against the southpaw, who now sports a 3.15 ERA since joining the Cardinals in June. However, his 1.49 WHIP is much more indicative of how he's pitched for St. Louis. He's not a recommend option for fantasy leagues heading into a matchup against the Braves next week.
Wade LeBlanc allowed eight hits, three earned runs, and a walk in just four innings (82 pitches) in a no-decision against Cincinnati on Friday night. LeBlanc added five strikeouts as well.
The veteran southpaw also allowed a solo home run to Kyle Farmer. LeBlanc owns a solid 3.45 ERA with a not-so-solid 1.50 WHIP in his tenure with the Cardinals. He'll have a favorable matchup at home against the Nelson Cruz-less Twins next weekend but still remains a highly risk bet for fantasy purposes.
Wade LeBlanc pitched five innings of one-run ball on Sunday afternoon, allowing just five hits and a walk while striking out three in a no-decision against San Francisco.
The 36-year-old veteran has now made four starts with St. Louis and owns an impressive 2.92 ERA which has been a welcome sight for a team whose starting rotation has been hit hard by injuries. With that said, LeBlanc's 1.38 WHIP suggests he's been fortunate in the luck department, so it's hard to recommend him as a viable option in fantasy leagues after being released by the Orioles earlier this season (9.45 ERA). He has a very tough matchup scheduled next weekend at Cincinnati and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.
