Jesús Luzardo News
Miami Marlins starting pitcher Jesus Luzardo is set to start Game 1 of the wild-card series against the Philadelphia Phillies. With ace Sandy Alcantara shut down for the season, this is the most logical choice for the fish. He finished the regular season with a 3.63 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 208:55 K:BB ratio in 178 IP. While he's had a few clunkers recently, he has also been spectacular in a few starts. It could go either way on Tuesday, but the Marlins don't have a better option.
Miami Marlins starting pitcher Jesus Luzardo was impressive on the mound during Wednesday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays. The left-hander threw six scoreless innings, allowing only one hit and walked two batters. Sadly, Luzardo was handed a no-decision after his offense didn't give him any run support. He'll take his 3.62 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and a 175/44 K/BB across 27 starts into his next outing against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fantasy managers should expect Luzardo to somewhat regress after this impressive performance.
Miami Marlins pitcher Jesus Luzardo is in search of a bounce-back effort as he toes the rubber against the Kansas City Royals Tuesday night in Miami. It has certainly been an uneven season for the left-hander, especially of late. Luzardo has twice allowed at least five earned runs in two of his last three starts -- including his last time out -- but has also surrendered just one earned run in three of his last five. He continues to rack up plenty of strikeouts with a 27.6% K% on the campaign but has also failed to eclipse 5 1/3 innings pitched in each of his last three starts. The 25-year-old owns a solid 4.05 ERA on the season but his 3.68 SIERA and 20.5% K-BB% are wildly encouraging. He has a nice opportunity on deck against a Royals club that ranks 19th with a .319 wOBA against left-handed pitching this season.
Miami Marlins starting pitcher Jesus Luzardo comes into 2023 on the back of a breakout season in 2022, one where he firmly cemented himself as a part of the Marlins rotation. He only produced four wins for the lowly fish, but finished with solid numbers otherwise, posting a 3.32 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, and 120 strikeouts over 100 IP. Although all four of his pitches were effective, he especially leaned into his dominant curveball last season, making it his primary pitch and using it at a 30.1% clip. His 30.0% K rate and 88th percentile Whiff% show how dominant his stuff is, and if he continues to use all of his pitches effectively there is no reason why he can't continue his success on the mound in 2023. His FIP and xERA, at 3.12 and 3.39 respectively, show that he deserved his stellar numbers last year and that the breakout wasn't just a fluke. He isn't likely to win many games, but he should remain solid otherwise. The 25-year-old still has room to grow, and even if he just repeats last season he will be well worth his ADP (150.4).
