Cristian Javier News
Houston Astros starting pitcher Cristian Javier enjoyed another strong outing on Sunday. Javier limited the Baltimore Orioles to one hit in six shutout innings. He didn't walk any batters on the day and finished with eight strikeouts, 13 swinging strikes, and an excellent 36% CSW rate. He's now given up one run or fewer in seven of his last nine starts and has surrendered just four hits and four walks, with no earned runs, in his last 17 innings. For the season, the right-hander owns a 2.65 ERA, a 3.22 FIP, 187 strikeouts, and 50 walks in 142.2 innings of work. He's also registered 10 pitcher wins.
Houston Astros starter Cristian Javier earned the win on Tuesday against the Tampa Bay Rays. The right-hander gave up four walks and a hit in five scoreless frames. He also struck out six batters on the day. Overall, he generated 17 swinging strikes on 90 pitches and logged a 30% CSW rate. Of his 17 swinging strikes, 13 came via his four-seam fastball. All told this season, the 25-year-old has pitched to a 2.77 ERA, a 3.34 FIP, 179 strikeouts, and 50 walks in 136.2 innings of work. He's made 28 appearances, 23 of which have been starts, for the Astros so far. Tuesday's win was his 10th of the year.
Houston Astros starter Cristian Javier was masterful Wednesday afternoon when his team edged out the Detroit Tigers 2-1. The right-hander threw six scoreless innings, striking out eight, walking none, and allowing just two hits to earn his ninth win of the season. Javier has made 22 starts this year while appearing out of the bullpen five times, producing a 2.87 ERA and 0.99 WHIP with 173 strikeouts across 131.2 innings. He's one of many Astros starters with strong numbers, and he should remain a great fantasy asset as the season comes to an end.
The arrival of Houston Astros right-handerCristian Javierin 2020 was highly anticipated for those following the Astros minor league system. Javier piled up a really impressive 3.14 strikeout-to-walk ratio in his 377 innings in the minors that led to a 2.22 ERA and a 1.03 WHIP. That success immediately translated to the majors, as he posted a 3.48 ERA and a 0.99 WHIP in 54 1/3 innings in 2020 with another impressive 3.0 K:BB ratio. Under the hood, things look much less cheery. Javier threw his four-seam fastball a ridiculous 63% of the time and then added on another 25% with his slider usage. That made him one of the most predictable starters in the league, but he still managed to stay out of trouble. Neither of his primary offerings are overly impressive in terms of velocity or movement, so a lot of Javier's game relies on his deception and location. This is not a great setup for someone that is about to face Major League hitters for 150 innings. While he may very well prove us wrong, a wait-and-see approach should be taken with Javier for 2021.
