2018 FANTASY BASEBALL STATUS REPORT: DERECK RODRIGUEZ SP SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS

On an always jam-packed Friday night in fantasy baseball that has home runs and big pitching performances dotting the landscape, San Francisco Giants 26-year-old pitcher Dereck Rodriguez further distinguished himself by picking up his third win in going 6.1 scoreless innings while giving up six hits and punching out 5.  The outing also gained him some more credibility in the fantasy baseball community who are just now identifying who he is in terms of a possible asset.  As it stands out, Rodriguez goes into his next outing with the following numbers:

3-1
3.09 ERA
1.28 WHIP
.260 BAA
7.01 K/9
2.27 BB/9
0.62 HR/9
.309 BABIP

When perusing the numbers above, Rodriguez has walked a bit of a thin line as his .260 BAA is high and his 7.01 K/9 is below average and not very useful in fantasy baseball terms.  Add in the shaky 1.28 WHIP and Rodriguez has some red flags attached to his name for sure.  On the other hands, Rodriguez has made sure not to beat himself as he is not walking many batters and he is keeping the ball in the park as well which when combined together really help keep the ERA at bay.  Still, the ERA and WHIP are in two different zones in terms of impact and that usually spells trouble going forward.  Add in the small margin for error as a guy who is not a major strikeout artist (or even average in that area) and Rodriguez looks a whole lot more shaky of an investment then the surface numbers may show.
