Paredes (3-3) allowed two runs (one earned) and a walk in one-third of an inning in an extra-inning loss to the Rangers on Friday. Paredes loaded the bases in the bottom of the 10th inning and allowed the tying-run to scored on a sacrifice fly. Brooks Raley came in to try to diffuse the situation, but instead allowed the Rangers' winning run to score on a fielder's choice. Paredes was charged with his second blown save of the year. He has a 3.05 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and five holds in 20.2 innings.
Paredes (2-2) allowed a hit and two walks with one strikeouts over two-thirds of an inning in a win over the Athletics in Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader. Paredes wasn't particularly sharp in the appearance, but he was able to earn the win when Yuli Gurriel's sacrifice fly gave the Astros the lead in the top of the seventh. The 24-year-old Paredes has pitched to a 3.45 ERA with a 1.66 WHIP and 17 strikeouts through 15.2 innings this season. He's also recorded five holds.
Paredes (1-0) was credited with the win in Thursday's 10-8 victory over the Rockies. He worked around a walk in a scoreless inning. In a slugfest at Coors Field, Houston starter Cristian Javier didn't last the five innings necessary to qualify for the win. Three relievers preceded Paredes, but the official scorer determined he was the best of that crew and he was given the win. The 24-year-old right-hander has pitched well out of the Astros' bullpen, posting a 2.45 ERA over 11 innings while not being hurt by the seven walks he's issued.
Paredes allowed two runs on two hits and a walk without retiring a batter in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Dodgers. Starter Framber Valdez tired in the fifth, allowing the first three batters to reach on singles, and he departed with the bases loaded. With injuries in the bullpen, manager Dusty Baker didn't have many options, so he called on Paredes, a 24-year-old right-hander who hadn't pitched above Double-A prior to 2020. His mission Tuesday was to face the top of the Dodgers' order -- Mookie Betts, Max Muncy, Justin Turner and Cody Bellinger -- and it did not go well.
Paredes has made Houston's Opening Day roster, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports. While Paredes is technically still being developed as a starter, he's expected to fill a relief role during the shortened 2020 season. The 5-foot-11 right-hander sports a mid-to-upper-90s fastball and a power slider that could eventually profile nicely in a setup role.
