Triston McKenzie News
Cleveland Guardians right-hander Triston McKenzie has begun the 2022 season on a good note, posting a 2.38 ERA and 24.4 K% in three games and two starts. However, the 24-year-old owns a 13.3% walk rate and has yet to throw five innings in a game. During McKenzie's last start, he allowed just one run but walked four in 4.1 innings. His control stained his 2021 season when he produced a 4.95 ERA and 11.7 BB%. McKenzie got much better as the year went on, though, as he dropped his walk rate to 6.4% in the second half. If the Brooklyn native can find that command again and go further in games, he can be a real fantasy asset. His next start is expected to come Tuesday against the Los Angeles Angels in Anaheim.
Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Triston McKenzie threw six innings of one-run ball while striking out seven in a 3-1 win over the Minnesota Twins in the first game of a doubleheader Tuesday. McKenzie has been electric since returning from the minors and has allowed one earned run or less across each of his previous five starts while also striking out 39 batters in that span. He will make for a solid dynasty keeper heading in 2022.
Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Triston McKenzie struck out seven across six innings of one-run bass in a 3-0 loss to the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday. McKenzie has continued to roll since his early struggles this season and has allowed two earned runs or fewer in each of his previous five starts. He will make his next start Tuesday against these same Minnesota Twins at Target Field.
Cleveland Indians rookie starting pitcher Triston McKenzie has the stuff that makes fantasy managers swoon. It's easy to fall in love with a guy that generates a 26% K-BB, fed by 35% Chase and 12.4% Swinging Strike rates. McKenzie manipulated four pitches to success, led by a slider that generated 41.7% strikeout and only 55% contact rates. It's also worth noting that he only allowed a single hit on his curveball that he threw 91 times. McKenzie should have a fruitful 2021, even allowing for a little regression due to a .217 BABIP and 84% LOB, but he is not without risk. The primary concern will be ensuring he stays on the mound. McKenzie has had health issues that hopefully major league conditioning can resolve. Assuming he has a rotation spot, he should be a full commit, but keep in mind his innings will be limited as a rookie. Even with the minor risks, an ADP of 161 might be the perfect time to take a chance on an upside pick like McKenzie.
