Fedde will start Thursday's series finale against the Phillies, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports. Fedde originally lined up to start Tuesday but consecutive postponements and Wednesday's subsequent doubleheader threw a wrench in the Nationals' rotation plans. The 26-year-old has a 3.81 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 14:10 K:BB in five starts for the Nationals this year.
Fedde (1-1) allowed five earned runs on six hits and three walks while striking out one across six innings to take the loss Thursday against the Diamondbacks. Fedde's outing was ultimately derailed by two home runs, which accounted for three of his five earned runs. He managed to work fairly deep into the game despite his struggles, needing only 81 pitches to record 18 outs. Fedde has managed to prevent runs fairly effectively in five starts this season, allowing 11 baserunners to cross the plate across 26 innings. He'll look to bounce back from this effort in his next outing, currently scheduled for Tuesday against Philadelphia.
Fedde allowed two runs on six hits and three walks in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Reds. He struck out three but did not qualify for the victory. Despite the consistent traffic on the bases, opposing pitcher Tanner Roark was the only Red to come through with any RBI on Saturday. Fedde did well to limit the damage, but he couldn't get through the fifth inning to qualify for his second straight win. The 26-year-old has a 2.55 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 15:11 K:BB over 24.2 innings and should take the mound next weekend at San Diego.
Fedde (1-0) surrendered four hits and three walks while striking out four over five scoreless innings Sunday in a win against Miami. Fedde was impressive through the first five innings of the series finale, hurling 51 of 83 pitches for strikes. The right-hander owns a 2.18 ERA and 1.11 WHIP with a 12:8 K:BB over 20.2 innings this season and appears likely to remain in the rotation for at least one more turn while Anibal Sanchez (hamstring) continues to rehab.
Fedde allowed one earned run on four hits and a walk while striking out one across five innings Tuesday against the Mets. He did not factor into the decision. Fedde wasn't particularly impressive from a deception standpoint, generating only nine called strikes and four swinging strikes. However, he limited the Mets to just one extra-base hit and allowed only one free pass. The 26-year-old has appeared mostly as a long reliever this season and posted a 1.02 WHIP and 2.87 ERA across 15.2 innings despite striking out just eight. Fedde will likely continue in a starter role for now with Anibal Sanchez (hamstring) out, with his next outing currently scheduled for Sunday against Miami.
