Triston McKenzie News
Cleveland Guardians starting pitcher Triston McKenzie lowered his ERA below 3.00 with another solid outing Wednesday, allowing one run on three hits and a walk in six innings. He struck out six batters and took a no-decision in the 2-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. McKenzie now has a streak of four straight quality starts and has not allowed more than three earned runs since Aug. 2. He has been a major breakout player for Cleveland this year with a 2.99 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 186 strikeouts in 186 1/3 innings across 30 starts.
Cleveland Guardians starting pitcher Triston McKenzie's start has been pushed back from Thursday to Friday against the Minnesota Twins. Rookie Hunter Gaddis will be recalled from the minors to start against the Chicago White Sox on Thursday. It's unclear as of now why the Guardians made the decision to move McKenzie back a day. The 25-year-old right-hander has been very good for Cleveland and fantasy managers in 2022, posting a 3.05 ERA (3.87 FIP), a 0.97 WHIP, 159 strikeouts and 43 walks in 165 1/3 innings over his 27 outings (26 starts) in his third MLB season. Gaddis, 24, will be making just his second major-league start on Thursday. In his first start on Aug. 5 against the Houston Astros, he allowed eight earned runs on seven hits (two homers) while walking two and striking out two in just 3 1/3 innings.
Cleveland Guardians starter Triston McKenzie turned in another strong outing on Sunday. Facing the Houston Astros, McKenzie threw eight scoreless frames against Yordan Alvarez and company, giving up just two hits and a walk while striking out eight batters. The right-hander logged a quality 32% CSW rate and generated 17 swinging strikes on 91 pitches thrown. Since the start of July, McKenzie has pitched to a 1.70 ERA, a 2.46 FIP, 48 strikeouts, and just 12 walks in 47.2 innings of work.
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.
