Framber Valdez became Mr. Quality Start in 2022, tossing 201 1/3 innings in 31 starts for the World Champions. Houston allowed the 29-year-old to go deep into games, and with the departure of Justin Verlander, he slots in as their No. 1 starter. Valdez has more value in fantasy leagues where quality starts are a category because his pitching repertoire lends itself to more groundouts than strikeouts. He is no slouch, though, and will serve as a great SP2 on fantasy rosters.

Framber Valdez gets rocked again in loss Friday

Framber Valdez was knocked around by the Tampa Bay Rays Friday in a 7-3 loss. He was charged with six runs on nine hits and three walks in just 5 1/3 innings.

Fantasy Impact

Valdez had pitched a single-season MLB record 25 consecutive quality starts and has been one of the best pitchers in baseball this year. However, Friday marked his second straight start where he was hit hard. His record dropped to 16-6 in what was likely his last start this year. The Astros will hope the talented lefty can get back on track in the postseason.
