Duane Underwood Jr. News
Pittsburgh Pirates relief pitcher Duane Underwood Jr. (hamstring) was removed from the game on Opening Day with right hamstring discomfort, according to Jason Mackey. Underwood Jr. wasn't much of a fantasy option to begin with as he is buried in the pecking order for saves in Pittsburgh behind more experienced relievers. With a stint on the injured list a possibility, there's no reason to roster Underwood Jr. in any fantasy league.
Pittsburgh Pirates relief pitcher Duane Underwood Jr. was activated from the 10-day injured list on Sunday. The 26-year-old righty was out of commission because of side discomfort, but it appears as if he is now ready to go. Underwood currently owns a subpar 4.86 ERA, but he has some value based on his 47 strikeouts throughout 50 innings on the year, something fantasy managers who are in need should keep in mind. To make room, Nick Mears was optioned in a corresponding move.
Pittsburgh Pirates relief pitcher Duane Underwood Jr. kicked off his 2021 season with a bang Thursday, striking out three in one perfect inning of relief in a 5-3 Opening Day victory over the Cubs. Underwood who was acquired from the Cubs during Spring Training showed no mercy against his former teammates, needing 18 pitches to get Javier Baez, Jason Heyward and David Bote to all strike out swinging. He has been a high-strikeout reliever throughout his career, and after Thursday's performance he is looking like he could be a solid pickup in SV/HLD formats.
