Zach Davies News
Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Zach Davies failed to get through five innings on Thursday versus the San Francisco Giants. Davies was yanked from the game with two runners on and one out in bottom of the fifth inning. Reliever Rex Brothers would then allow both inherited runners to score. Davies finished with a final line of 4 1/3 innings and allowed eight hits, four runs, two walks and struck out four on the evening. Davies has struggled with his new team this year and he is now 2-3 with a 4.94 ERA. Next up for Davies is a matchup versus a dangerous San Diego Padres offense on Tuesday. Davies should be ignored in all formats.
Chicago Cubs right-hander Zach Davies did a nice job holding a dangerous Cincinnati Reds lineup at bay in his start on Saturday. Davies allowed just one run over five innings of work while striking out three and walking two. The Cubs went on to win 10-2, although Davies did not factor into the decision. Davies continues to trend upwards after a rough start to the season. While he has a 4.65 ERA overall, Davies has a 2.83 ERA over his past seven games. He isn't a great source for strikeouts, with just 29 in 50 1/3 innings of work, but Davies does enough in the other categories to merit being rostered in most leagues. Fantasy gamers can continue to roll with Davies for his next start, which will come against the San Francisco Giants on Thursday.
Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Zach Davies picked up another no-decision on Sunday versus the St. Louis Cardinals. Davies has looked better of late and went five innings on the evening. He allowed four hits, zero runs, three walks and three strikeouts. Despite the no runs allowed, the walks continue to be concerning and he doesn't offer enough strikeout upside for managers to run after on the waiver wire. Davies remains best suited as a streamer. He will carry a 4.96 ERA into his next matchup versus a good Cincinnati Reds offense on Sunday.
Everything came together for Chicago Cubs starting pitcherZach Davies in his one year with the Padres, as he posted career-bests in ERA (2.73), WHIP (1.07) and strikeout rate (22.8%). This was, however, one of the least believable breakouts in recent memory, as he benefited hugely from a low BABIP (.249) and high strand rate (78.2%). It is also notable that he achieved these great results without changing anything about himself. His pitch arsenal remained the same and he added no velocity or movement to those pitches. He remained a very fly-ball heavy pitcher (41.3% ground-ball rate) and actually surrendered the highest expected wOBA on contact of his career (.401). A December trade put him in the Chicago Cubs rotation, which is a neutral move, at best, as he goes to a slightly better ballpark for pitchers but has a much worse offense backing him. Do not be fooled by the numbers. Davies will be an average-at-best fantasy pitcher in 2021.
