Tarik Skubal News
Detroit Tigers pitcher Tarik Skubal will look to stay dominant on Thursday when he gets the ball to kick off a four-game set with the Oakland A's on the road. The left-hander hurled seven innings of one-run ball while allowing just three hits with nine strikeouts and no walks his last time out against the Angels, continuing a stretch that has seen him surrender just five earned runs over his last four starts with two earned runs or fewer surrendered in five of his last six. Skubal has lowered his ERA to a healthy 3.25 mark on the season while he also sports an eye-popping 2.28 FIP, 2.99 SIERA, and a big-time 25.9% K-BB% across his 13 starts on the campaign. He certainly appears to be a budding ace and a major dynasty league asset at the age of 26.
Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Tarik Skubal hurled a quality start Friday afternoon against the Cleveland Guardians. He moved to 3-2 on the season after allowing one run over six innings, striking out seven. The 26-year-old lowered his ERA to 3.76 and is starting to look like a pitcher that can help teams down the stretch. He now has a .238 batting average against and 43 strikeouts compared to seven walks.
Detroit Tigers pitcher Tarik Skubal will look to silence the American League Central rival Cleveland Guardians in a road start Thursday night. The left-hander, who underwent flexor-tendon surgery last summer, has made just seven starts this season while working to a 4.18 ERA in that time. However, a look under the hood reveals Skubal also sports fantastic peripherals in the form of a 2.70 xERA, 2.09 FIP, 2.90 xFIP, 3.14 SIERA, and a career-best 23.1% K-BB rate across 32 1/3 innings of work. Skubal has also seen his ground-ball rate skyrocket to 54.7%, a figure that has helped him allow just one home run this season. He will have a solid opportunity to have his positive regression kick in Thursday against a Guardians offense that ranks dead-last with a .284 wOBA versus left-handed pitching this season.
On a team full of promising rookie performances in fantasy, Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Tarik Skubal's 2021 season was perhaps the most encouraging of all. The 25-year-old set a Tigers rookie record with 164 strikeouts in 149.1 innings while also pitching to a 4.34 ERA and a 5.09 FIP. His biggest issue was the long ball. The left-hander surrendered 2.11 home runs per nine innings last season, hardly a sustainable number. One of the game's top pitching prospects prior to making his Major League debut, Skubal was limited to three and four-inning starts during the stretch run as the Tigers looked to limit his innings total. With a slightly more regular innings workload this next season, Skubal should be able to rack up more strikeouts. His bat-missing ability and velocity as a left-hander give him immense upside. Plus, the fact that Detroit should be competitive and pushing for a playoff spot next season with an improved lineup only boosts the left-hander's value as it could lead to more pitcher wins. His ADP, per NFBC, is currently 188. If you're looking for a pitcher to draft with significant potential late in drafts, similar to Trevor Rogers last season, Skubal is the pitcher for you.
