Fantasy Analysis | 1409091505
Tsuyoshi Wada not getting enough respect
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

I've discussed previously why Tsuyoshi Wada has flown under the radar for so long. He was older and less hyped than Wei-Yin Chen when the Orioles signed both prior to 2012, and then he needed Tommy John surgery right away.

But now that he's done what he's done for a solid eight starts (or seven, anyway -- one of the earliest wasn't so great), he needs to be front and center.

Is he must-start or even must-own? No, but 50 percent ownership is Justin Masterson territory. Wada is owned in fewer leagues than Taijuan Walker, who hasn't pitched in the majors since July 23 and may not get another start this season.

And that's coming off a no-hit bid against the Orioles last time out.

I don't even want to use the limited strikeout potential as an excuse anymore because he's averaging 8.3 per nine innings in his last six starts. Alongside 1.5 walks per nine during that same stretch, the Hisashi Iwakuma comparisons gain traction.

Where Wada falls short is innings. He's only gone seven once, which further limits his wins potential. But as efficient as he is, that could change in the weeks ahead, and even if it doesn't, is he really less reliable than someone like Tim Hudson, who's still owned in 87 percent of leagues?

Tsuyoshi Wada takes no-hitter into seventh inning Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada earned a win Sunday, giving up one earned run on just one hit and one walk in 6 1/3 innings while striking out eight in his team's 2-1 victory over the Orioles.

Wada (4-1) took a no-hitter into the seventh inning before allowing his only hit of the game, a solo home run by Steve Pearce. He hasn't surrendered more than two earned runs in any of his last six outings. Wada owns a 2.56 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 41:11 K:BB ratio in 45 2/3 innings after Sunday's big performance. He'll face the Cardinals Saturday.

Report: Cubs, Giants set to continue Tuesday game Thursday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Giants have prevailed in a protest of how Tuesday's called game was handled, and Tuesday's 2-0 Cubs win is set to be continued Thursday, picking up where things left off in the bottom of the fifth inning, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The game was delayed for more than four hours after the grounds crew was unable to get the tarp completely on the infield before it was drenched, with the umpires ultimately deciding to call the game and award Chicago with the win late into the night. Tsuyoshi Wada (win) and Ryan Vogelsong (loss) were the pitchers of record in the game, but if it's continued, those decisions are up in the air.

Tsuyoshi Wada wins, Ryan Vogelsong loses in rain-shortened affair
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Tuesday's game between the Cubs and Giants was called as final after five innings, with the Cubs coming out on top, 2-0.

Cubs pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada got the win after throwing five shutout innings, scattering six pitches and striking out three batters. Ryan Vogelsong took the loss for the Giants, allowing two runs on three hits and a pair of walks over four innings, while striking out four before the rain came.

Tsuyoshi Wada goes five scoreless innings before delay Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitchr Tsuyoshi Wada gave up six hits in five scoreless innings while striking out three Tuesday before his team's game against the Giants went into a long delay in the bottom of the fifth inning.

The rain came down for about 15 minutes at Wrigley Field, but the grounds crew was unable to bring the tarp in before the field got soaked. That led to a massive delay that extended after the rain stopped as the grounds crew tried to get the field in a playable condition. If Wada's line stands, he'll own a 2.75 ERA and 33:10 K:BB ratio in 39 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to pitch again Sunday against the Orioles.
