Conley (7-8) allowed six runs on three hits and three walks without striking out a batters through just 1.1 innings to take the loss to Colorado on Wednesday. While the 27-year-old lefty has tossed a number of strong outings in the second half, Conley has also now been pulled in the second inning of consecutive games. Additionally, allowing 13 runs through just three innings over those past two starts has him up to a 6.20 ERA and 1.53 WHIP for the campaign. His start-to-start inconsistency significantly hurt his fantasy value this year, and it's probably best to take a wait-and-see approach with Conley in the majority of settings entering next season.
Conley coughed up seven runs on six hits and a walk in only 1.2 innings Friday but avoided taking the loss against the Diamondbacks. It was his shortest outing since April 28, when he also got chased with two outs in the second inning by the Pirates. Conley saw his ERA spike to 5.74, and things may not get much better for the lefty in his final start of the year Wednesday, when the Marlins travel to Coors Field.
Conley (7-7) picked up the win after allowing three runs on five hits and three walks in 5.2 innings Saturday against the Brewers. He struck out six. Conley appeared to be cruising to his ninth quality start of the season before back-to-back homers from Ryan Braun and Travis Shaw forced him out of the game in the sixth inning. The 27-year-old southpaw has had issues keeping the ball in the park lately, allowing nine home runs in his last six starts, which hasn't helped his already inflated ERA. Conley, who owns an unsightly 5.20 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 72:38 K:BB through 98.2 innings this season, will make his next start Friday against the Diamondbacks.
Conley allowed four runs on nine hits and two walks across 4.2 innings Saturday while striking out two batters. He didn't factor into the decision during the Marlins' 6-5 loss to the Braves. The lefty holds an uninviting 5.23 ERA on the season, along with a 6.4 K/9 and 3.4 BB/9 over 93 innings. Conley will continue to eat innings for the Marlins, though, and perhaps his brief flashes of fantasy utility can help brave owners looking for streamer help down the stretch. He could scratch out some strikeouts against the whiff-happy Brewers next Friday, but the accompanying ratios could get ugly.
Conley (6-7) allowed three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out two batters through just four innings during Monday's loss to Washington. While the lefty has endured a couple rough outings since returning from injury July 18, he entered Monday's outing with a serviceable 3.72 ERA and 1.31 WHIP. Conley's 6.5 K/9 limits his fantasy upside, but there are still plenty of settings where he moves the needle, especially if he's only utilized in soft matchups. Washington definitely doesn't fit into that category. Conley lines up to face the Braves at SunTrust Park in his next start.
