Phillies | Zach Eflin roughed up by Marlins

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 15:43:56 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Zach Eflin endured a rough outing Wednesday, July 27, against the Miami Marlins. The rookie right-hander went five innings, yielding seven runs on nine hits and four walks. He also only struck out one.

Fantasy Tip: Coming off his first career shutout, not to mention an impressive streak of six straight quality starts, Eflin was hit hard this afternoon for the first time since his major league debut several weeks ago in Toronto. His ERA jumped up from 3.40 to 4.23 as a result of this performance, so hopefully this doesn't hinder the 22-year-old's confidence going into his next assignment.

Phillies | Zach Eflin tosses shutout

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 18:54:47 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Zach Eflin (3-3) allowed three hits and struck out six batters in a shutout against the Pittsburgh Pirates Friday, July 22. It was his first career shutout and second career complete game.

Fantasy Tip: Eflin has posted a 2.08 ERA in his last seven outings, with five walks and 24 strikeouts over 47 2/3 innings, and has tossed six consecutive quality starts. He should be viewed as a decent option for NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, although his tendency to pitch to contact won't result in high strikeout totals.

Mets | Jacob deGrom tosses one-hitter

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 15:22:08 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom had a one-hitter Sunday, July 17, as the Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies, 5-0. Phillies SP Zach Eflin had the lone hit for Philadelphia. DeGrom struck out seven, walked one and went the distance for the first time in 68 career starts. He hadn't pitched since July 6 because of the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: Whether it was the extra rest that deGrom got, the fact it was the Phillies, or something else, deGrom had a spectacular outing. He should be played in all formats, as so far deGrom has avoided the hard luck of other Met hurlers.

Phillies | Zach Eflin goes the distance

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 19:22:06 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Zach Eflin allowed just one earned run and six hits with no walks in a complete game victory against the Atlanta Braves Tuesday, July 5. He also struck out a career-high six batters in the 92-pitch efficient quality start.

Fantasy Tip: Eflin finally has a win to show for his efforts after three straight quality starts, and four outings in a row yielding three or fewer earned runs. He has emerged as a decent low-end NL-only fantasy option and DFS salary saver.

Phillies | Zach Eflin keeps Giants in check

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 00:03:50 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Zach Eflin scattered five hits over six innings, allowing just one unearned run against the San Francisco Giants on Friday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: After a brutal major-league debut, Eflin has done a solid job in back-to-back starts: 11 2/3 IP, 9 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 1 BB and 4 K's. Even with that, Eflin remains more of an NL-only option due to his porous run support and tendency to pitch to contact, which severely limits his strikeout numbers.

Phillies | Zach Eflin struggles in debut

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 17:31:55 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Zach Eflin allowed eight runs on nine hits in 2 2/3 innings against the Toronto Blue Jays Tuesday, June 14, to suffer his first loss of the season.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Eflin will remain in the rotation for the time being or if he will be sent back down to the minor leagues, so owners should monitor the situation. He should not have much value outside NL-only leagues at this point.
