Four starts into the season, Mikolas had yet to record more strikeouts than runs allowed. While he has looked better on occasion, some rough starts have kept his ERA at an inflated 3.94 with a middling 6.6 K/9. Even though he has settled down to post a 2.92 ERA since the start of July, the lack of strikeouts makes him more of a deep-league arm unlikely to recoup his high draft cost.

Mikolas was strong last year but it hasn't exactly carried over this year. The ratios aren't bad, especially his WHIP but without Ks being there, he might not be worthy of a fantasy roster spot.

Mikolas had an incredible season in his first year back from pitching in Japan, posting a 2.83 ERA and 1.07 WHIP while winning 18 games for the Cardinals. His weak strikeout rate is a bit of a detriment in roto leagues with low innings caps, but it isn't too big a deal in points leagues. That said, he's due for a bit of a correction in his BABIP and HRs allowed, which should cause his ERA to rise at least into the mid-3.00s. He can still be a useful fantasy pitcher in most formats, but could be overvalued.
