Berrios (7-1) struck out eight White Sox over eight innings Wednesday, allowing just two runs on four hits and a walk in a 4-2 win. A disaster in his first taste of the majors last season, Berrios has been the exact opposite since being called up this year, living up to his prospect hype by posting elite numbers -- a 2.67 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 53:15 K:BB in 54 innings. He's now gone eight innings in two consecutive starts, and he's only given up four homers (three of them in one game) in his eight outings for the Twins. There may be some regression coming his way, but it still looks like he's truly arrived as a major-league starter.
Berrios went eight innings in a win over the Mariners on Thursday. He allowed two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out six. The Twins staked Berrios to a five-run lead after one and the 23-year-old cruised from there, completing eight innings for the first time in his young career. Berrios is now 6-1 with a 2.74 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 45:14 K:BB in seven starts since being recalled to Minnesota (46 innings). He's pitching like a bonafide ace right now, and Berrios lines up to face a White Sox team in his next start that ranks 27th in terms of wRC+ against right-handed pitching.
Berrios gave up two earned runs over 5.1 innings with eight strikeouts and three walks to improve to 5-1 in Saturday's win at San Francisco. Berrios has put together back-to-back wins since his first loss of the season by allowing just four runs over his last 11.1 innings with 12 strikeouts in his last two starts. He continues to look like a completely different pitcher than the one who allowed an 8.02 ERA and 5.4 BB/9 last season.
Berrios pitched six innings and picked up the win Sunday during the Twins' 3-2 win against the Angels, allowing two runs and six hits, while striking out four and walking two. After struggling for the first time this season during his last outing, Berrios rebounded with six strong innings Sunday. It's likely safe to say Berrios is here to stay in Minnesota's rotation, and rightfully so, since he has allowed 10 runs over 32.2 innings with a 2.76 ERA in the big leagues.
Berrios (3-1) gave up four runs on five hits, four walks and a hit batsman while striking out five Astros over five innings in Tuesday's 7-2 loss. After posting a studly 22:4 K:BB through his first three MLB starts of the year, Berrios struggled mightily with his control this time around, needing 104 pitches to finish those five frames. One of the game's most promising young arms, he stumbled in his first taste of the majors last year, but he's come back with even better results in Triple-A and largely carried them over in his second MLB campaign. As with any young pitcher, there'll be some travails, but Berrios looks like he's going to retain fantasy relevance this time around.
