Daniel Ponce de Leon News
St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Daniel Ponce de Leon struggled in a very short Sunday start against the Milwaukee Brewers. Ponce de Leon pitched just 1 1/3 innings, allowing seven runs on six hits and four walks. Of his 52 pitches, only 29 were strikes, as Ponce de Leon was just all over the place in this one. He was coming off an excellent start against the Marlins, but he just couldn't throw strikes in this one. He'll hope for a better result in his next start, which should come against the Phillies.
St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Daniel Ponce de Leon pitched well in his first start of the season on Monday. Taking on the Miami Marlins, Ponce de Leon went five innings, allowing just one run on three hits and one walk while striking out three. He threw almost all fastballs, but he kept getting the Marlins hitters to swing under the ball and induced seven fly outs to just four ground outs. That'll work well in a giant ballpark like loanDepot park, but it could lead to some ugly outings at more hitter-friendly confines. Still, it's a positive sign from Ponce de Leon, who will get the Brewers in St. Louis his next time out.
St. Louis Cardinals right-handed pitcher Daniel Ponce de Leon got the start in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Houston Astros. He ended up throwing 4 1/3 innings, allowing three runs on five hits but walking six and only striking out three. He's put up a 4.76 ERA in spring and still has a chance to win a spot in the Cardinals starting rotation, at least a temporary one until Miles Mikolas (shoulder) returns. Still, Ponce de Leon's lack of strikeout upside and occasional bouts with bad control make him a risky fantasy play without much upside.
