Jesús Luzardo News
Miami Marlins left-hander Jesus Luzardo (forearm) and right-hander Cody Poteet (elbow) both played catch on Monday, while right-hander Pablo Lopez (wrist) threw a bullpen session. Luzardo was put on the injured list on May 15 with a left forearm strain, and he'll likely need a couple more weeks to work his way back to the team's starting rotation. The 24-year-old southpaw had a 4.03 ERA and 1.17 WHIP with 41 K's in 29 innings over six starts before his injury. He should remain stashed in most mixed leagues. Lopez was pulled from his last start on Friday against the Houston Astros after being hit on the right wrist by a comebacker, but he's listed as the scheduled starter on Wednesday against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Miami Marlins left-hander Jesus Luzardo (forearm) has yet to resume throwing, according to manager Don Mattingly. The Marlins originally thought it would only be a couple days before Luzardo would resume throwing. He will need to be built back up as a starter. "It's not as good as we would've liked," Mattingly said. The 24-year-old southpaw won't be eligible to return from the 15-day injured list when he's eligible while dealing with a strained left forearm, so fantasy managers must be patient. Before the injury, Luzardo had a 4.03 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, a 34.5% strikeout rate and a career-high 13.5% walk rate in 29 innings pitched over his first six starts for the Marlins. With a 3.77 FIP, Luzardo deserves to be stashed in most fantasy formats.
The Miami Marlins placed starting pitcher Jesus Luzardo (forearm) on the 15-day injured list on Sunday with a left forearm strain. He will be first eligible to return on May 27 as the move to the injured list is retroactive to May 12. However, it's unclear how long he's expected to be out at this point. The team has announced that Cody Poteet will start for the team in a bullpen game against the Washington Nationals on Monday, a game that Luzardo had been previously scheduled to start. Luzardo has had an up-and-down start to the year with a 4.03 ERA, a 1.17 WHIP and a 34.5% strikeout rate.
After a stellar minor league career and 12 amazing innings at the end of the 2019 season, Oakland Athletics left-handerJesus Luzardo was one of the most popular breakout pitcher candidates for 2020. However, he was more good than great in his 59 innings. The lefty struck out batters at a disappointing rate (23.8%) and posted an uninspiring WHIP (1.27) despite not allowing many walks (6.9%). But the upside remains immense for this 23-year-old. He has a diverse pitch mix with a lot of swing-and-miss in his game -- 12.9% swinging-strike rate, 70.6% contact rate for his short major league career. Working against him is the fact that his career-high in innings pitched is just 109 (in 2018). Two things are likely: He will improve on his 2020 marks and his workload will be limited, and his current ADP of 100 seems to be weighing the latter much more heavily. There are few pitchers with this much upside, so it is a wise choice to choose quality over quantity and score Luzardo as the third or fourth member of your pitching staff.
