Patrick Sandoval News
Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Patrick Sandoval has had a stellar start to the 2022 season, posting a 3-1 record with a 1.79 ERA and 1.17 WHIP across his first seven starts. The 25-year-old has logged four quality starts over 40 1/3 innings with 38 strikeouts. While the left-hander has issued 17 walks, he has yet to allow a homer during the season, thus limiting any potential damage. Sandoval's start has also been validated by career bests of a 2.56 FIP, 3.00 xERA, and .325 xSLG. The Halo lefty is expected to continue his strong start this weekend at home against the Toronto Blue Jays.
Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Reid Detmers will start the second game of the season as he and Patrick Sandoval have swapped rotation spots, according to Jeff Fletcher. Fletcher noted that Sandoval was fatigued, but not injured, so manager Joe Maddon is giving the lefty a few more days to rest. That will set Sandoval up with a better matchup as he'll face the Marlins instead of the Astros. Detmers now draws Houston on Friday in a matchup fantasy managers should avoid.
Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Patrick Sandoval (back) will not pitch again in 2021 due to a stress fracture in his back, according to Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register. Sandoval was placed on the injured list last Wednesday with what was reported as a left lumbar spine stress reaction, but now this news clarifies it is a stress fracture that will end his year prematurely. Sandoval has had a breakout year for Los Angeles, going 3-6 with a 3.62 ERA, 1.207 WHIP and 25.9 percent strikeout rate across 87 innings of work. He can be dropped in all redraft formats.
Los Angeles pitcher Patrick Sandoval (back) started last season in the minors and was called up to the big leagues in early May. He was initially used as a swingman then eventually was promoted to the starting rotation. In August, Sandoval's season was cut short after sustaining a left lumbar spine stress reaction. The 25-year-old has electric stuff, posting a 3.62 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, 15.5and 94 strikeouts over 87 innings in 2021. He limited the damage with a 51% ground ball rate and owned a career-high 25.9 K%. Sandoval is expected to fully recover from his back issue and projects to be the team's third starter in a six-man rotation behind Shohei Ohtani and Noah Syndergaard. The Angels right-hander can rack up the strikeouts, and Cutter's projections are on board, predicting 166 punch-outs over 151 innings. According to Rotoballer's Expected Draft Values, Sandoval is roughly fair value at 212 ADP. With an elite 15.2% swinging-strike rate and the ability to shut down hitters, there's some injury risk, but Sandoval could smash value at his current ADP.
