Littell's Effort Not Enough in Rays' Narrow Los

Zack Littell delivered a mixed performance, allowing three earned runs on eight hits while striking out seven over 5.2 innings in the Rays' 5-4 loss to the Angels on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Despite not factoring into the decision, Littell's outing was a decent display of control, as he did not issue any walks. His season ERA slightly rose to 2.14, but his ability to maintain a high strikeout rate and a solid 4.40 strikeout-to-walk ratio continues to make him a valuable asset in fantasy leagues. The lack of walks in this game is a positive takeaway, although the eight hits allowed indicate some vulnerability.

Littell's Gritty Outing Not Enough for Angels

Despite a solid performance that hinted at underlying potential, Zack Littell's Wednesday night effort against the Tampa Bay Rays was a mixed bag that fantasy managers should dissect with a critical eye.

Fantasy Impact

Over 4.1 innings, Littell managed to limit the damage to just one earned run on six hits and three walks while striking out four. However, his inability to pitch deep into the game, coupled with the Angels' eventual 4-2 loss, leaves fantasy managers hanging on a thread of what could have been. With a sparkling 1.17 ERA and a commendable 1.30 WHIP through his first three starts of the season, Littell is showcasing signs of being a potentially valuable asset in deeper fantasy leagues.

Zack Littell shines in no-decision

Despite a solid performance that didn't translate into a win, Zack Littell's outing against the Rockies on Friday night should not go unnoticed by fantasy managers.

Fantasy Impact

Delivering five innings of one-run ball while striking out five, Littell continued to build on his impressive early-season form. The right-hander has been a bright spot on the mound to begin the season, allowing one run or less while also striking out at least five in both of his starts for the Rays. The 28-year-old will be worth monitoring for fantasy managers already pressing the panic button on one or more of their starting options this early in the season.

Zack Littell expected to spend 2024 season in Rays rotation

Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Zack Littell is expected to spend the entire 2024 season as a starter.

Fantasy Impact

Littell came to Tampa Bay after being designated for assignment by the Red Sox in 2023. He made 14 starts and 26 appearances for the Rays, working to a 3.93 ERA in the process. Tampa Bay has a wealth of rotation injuries and Tyler Glasnow was traded in the offseason but Littell is expected to hold a starter role for the entire campaign.

Zack Littell tosses 7 strong innings with 8 strikeouts in loss to Twins

Zack Littell turned in an impressive performance on Tuesday, lasting seven innings and striking out eight batters while allowing just five hits and no walks.

Fantasy Impact

Although he gave up three earned runs, his strong outing should boost his fantasy value going forward. Littell's season-long numbers, including a 4.25 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP, have been solid but not spectacular. However, his improved ratios in this game, including a 7.4 K/9 and a 7.11 strikeout-to-walk ratio, suggest that he may be finding his groove. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on Littell as he could be a valuable asset down the stretch.
