Faria (3-0) allowed three runs on five hits and one walk while striking out seven across six innings in a no-decision against the Orioles on Saturday.
Faria gave up home runs to Adam Jones and Welington Castillo, but he still was able to record his fourth straight quality start to begin his big-league career. Fantasy owners will continue to be excited to use him in weekly lineups until he shows significant signs of falling off, though with a 2.10 ERA, he certainly could continue to be a dominant pitcher. He'll make his next start Friday against the Orioles.
Faria (3-0) racked up nine strikeouts in Sunday's 9-1 win over the Tigers, allowing just a run on six hits and a walk over seven innings.
The rookie continues to dazzle, notching an impressive 17 swinging strikes Sunday while firing a career-high 110 pitches. Faria has now allowed just one earned run in each of his first three starts and has displayed superb control on his way to a 22:4 K:BB across 19.2 innings. The Rays appear to have a potential ace in the 23-year-old, who boasts a solid 3.16 SIERA, 2.77 xFIP and 29 percent strikeout rate as well. He'll look to extend the stellar start to his big-league career when he tangles with the Orioles at Tropicana Field in his next trip to the mound.
Faria (2-0) allowed one run on six hits and a walk while striking out eight over 6.1 innings in Tuesday's 8-1 win over the Blue Jays.
The young right-hander has been very impressive in his first two big-league starts, racking up a 13:3 K:BB in 12,2 innings, and he appears to be locking down a rotation spot with the Rays. Faria will next take the mound Sunday in Detroit.
Faria was recalled from Triple-A Durham and will start Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The pitching prospect was sent back to the minors to allow Matt Andriese (groin) to return from the disabled list, but with the 27-year-old landing back on the DL with a stress reaction in his hip, Faria will get a crack at maintaining a rotation spot for a while. Andriese isn't expected to be back in action until August, so Faria will likely get an opportunity to occupy a full-time role in the Rays' rotation as long as his production allows it. With this development, the 23-year-old right-hander could get a two-start week in, beginning Tuesday with a duel against Toronto righty Marco Estrada.
Faria was sent down to Triple-A Durham on Thursday, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Just a day after completing a quality start against the White Sox, Faria will head back to Durham with the return of Peter Bourjos off the disabled list. Faria tossed 6.1 innings against Chicago, only allowing one run off three hits and two walks while striking out five. With Matt Andriese (groin) set to come off the DL and start on Saturday, Faria was pushed back down and will stay in Durham for the time being.
