BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 32% of Yahoo Leagues

ANALYSIS: Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Matt Andriese has a 2.89 ERA over the last 30 days, posting 8.20 strikeouts per nine, and now is a viable fantasy option. Andriese saw his ERA dip to 3.24 for the season after his last start against the Angels, while his WHIP dropped to 1.27. This was the fourth straight decision that Andriese (5-1) has won, and he now has five quality starts in his 10 starts this season. A jump in strikeouts has been good for Andriese, but he has also seen his ground ball percentage jump to 46.4% from 42.9% in 2016. While he has been pitching well this season, but does have 21 walks this season, nearing his season total of 25 in 127 2/3 innings last season. Another issue for potential owners is that his hard-hit ball percentage has jumped from 34.3% in 2016 to 40.9% this season.

Andriese has pitched six innings or fewer in seven of his 10 starts this season, but does have 52 strikeouts in 58 1/3 innings this season. He will face the Rangers in Texas on May 30, a poor matchup for Andriese, but his run of play could make him worthy of a streaming start. Andriese should be owned in all AL-only leagues and, if he has a good start in Texas, is worthy of being owned in all mixed leagues as well.
