Andriese (5-1) threw eight scoreless innings with six hits and two walks allowed while striking out five batters during Thursday's win over the Angels. After his worst start of the season against the Yankees last time out, this was a spectacular bounce-back showing from Andriese. He's posted admirable fantasy numbers with a 3.24 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 8.0 K/9 to go along with his five wins. While the 27-year-old righty is clearly deserving of more virtual attention going forward, it is probably still wise to consider avoiding daunting matchups. His upcoming road start against Texas likely qualifies and will be a telling outing.
Andriese (4-1) struck out five and gave up five earned runs on six hits in five innings in a 9-5 win over the Yankees on Saturday. Andriese was done in by some hard contact, surrendering a solo home run to Aaron Judge in the second inning, a two-run double to Chase Headley in the fourth and another solo blast to Gary Sanchez in the fifth. The five earned runs were a season high for the 27-year-old right-hander, and the game also marked the second outing in which he gave up a pair of homers. However, thanks to some run support, Andriese escaped with his third win over his last four trips to the mound. He'll look to keep the momentum going at home against the Dodgers next Thursday.
Andriese (3-1) allowed just two runs on four hits and four walks while striking out five batters over five innings during Sunday's win over Boston. Boston boasts an excellent lineup, and Andriese battled his way out of a number of jams to turn in the solid outing. His 3.18 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 8.3 K/9 are respectable fantasy numbers, and he's allowed two runs or fewer in five of eight starts, so the 27-year-old righty is proving to be a reliable, low-end fantasy asset. Andriese has another tough divisional opponent on deck next weekend, as the Yankees will be visiting Tropicana Field.
Andriese pitched 5.1 innings against Kansas City on Tuesday, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out seven. He's been an unexpectedly valuable fantasy asset early on thanks to that 3.12 ERA and 37 strikeouts in 40.1 innings, but Andriese puts way too many men on base to keep living such a charmed life. If he doesn't cut down on the number of walks and hits he allows, strand-rate regression will hit him hard. Andriese is a usable starter in a lot of fantasy formats, but he's the kind of guy you can cut as soon as the wind changes direction.
Andriese (2-1) struck out eight over seven scoreless innings in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Marlins, giving up five hits and three walks. Outside of his spotty control, Andriese was brilliant, notching 14 swinging strikes on the night and neutralizing a Marlins offense that had popped off for 10 runs the night prior. His trouble finding the strike zone may have cost him a complete game, as he was pulled after seven frames having thrown a season-high 113 pitches. Nevertheless, that makes two consecutive seven-inning quality starts for the 27-year-old right-hander, who'll look to keep the momentum going versus the struggling Royals in a home start next Tuesday.
