James Paxton pummeled in Dodgers' defeat

James Paxton struggled mightily in Friday's 9-6 loss to the Reds.

Fantasy Impact

He allowed five earned runs on five hits and four walks while striking out four over 4 2/3 innings. This performance is a stark deviation from his otherwise solid season, where he boasts a 3.49 ERA and five wins without a loss to this point. The uptick in walks and hits in this outing bloated his WHIP to 1.43 and his FIP to 5.69, indicating potential underlying issues. Fantasy managers should be wary; while Paxton has shown effectiveness this season, his low strikeout rate (5.1 K/9) and poor K/BB ratio (1.00) are red flags that could spell trouble if not corrected. Keep an eye on his next few starts for signs of adjustment or further decline.
