  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Charged with Game 1 loss

    Valdez (0-1) allowed five runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out two in two innings to take the loss against Atlanta in Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday.

    Valdez gave up a leadoff home run to begin Tuesday's contest, and he continued to struggle throughout his outing. He allowed three runs across the first two innings and gave up a two-run homer with no outs in the third inning prior to his removal. The 27-year-old had allowed just four runs (three earned) in 10.2 innings across his last two appearances, and he tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road Sunday in Game 5.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Starting Game 1 of World Series

    Valdez will start Game 1 of the World Series against Atlanta on Tuesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Valdez pitched eight excellent frames in Game 5 of the ALCS versus Boston, and he'll take the mound in the first game of the World Series for Houston. The left-hander has a 4.20 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 13:5 K:BB through three starts (15 innings) this postseason.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Cruises through eight innings

    Valdez picked up the win with an excellent outing in Game 5 of the ALCS against Boston on Wednesday, allowing just one run on three hits and a walk while striking out five across eight innings.

    A recurring theme throughout the postseason has been starters failing to pitch deep into games, sometimes by design but often due to poor performance. Valdez contributed to that in his previous outings, lasting a combined seven innings in his first two playoff starts, but he did everything the Astros could have wanted this time around. The only blemish on his record was a solo shot by Rafael Devers in the seventh inning, but all that did was shrink the Astros' lead from seven to six. Valdez won't be lined up to start again this series, but it's possible he's available out of the bullpen for Game 7 on Saturday if the series goes the distance.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Settles for no-decision

    Valdez allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits and three walks while striking out two in 2.2 innings in Friday's win over the Red Sox in Game 1 of the ALCS. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Valdez began Friday's contest by tossing two scoreless frames, but he was removed from the game after Boston put together a rally in the top of the third inning. The southpaw has now posted a 7.71 ERA and 2.43 WHIP in seven innings across his first two starts in the postseason. He tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road in Game 5.

    Valdez settled for a no-decision in Game 2 of the ALDS against the White Sox on Friday when he allowed four runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out six in 4.1 innings. The southpaw will attempt to get back on track at home in the first game of the ALCS.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Gives up four runs in Game 2

    Valdez allowed four runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out six in 4.1 innings during Friday's win over the White Sox in Game 2 of the ALDS. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Valdez loaded the bases with one out in the first inning before allowing the first run of the game to come across, and he gave up three more runs in the fifth frame prior to his removal. The lefty threw just 69 pitches (43 strikes) in the outing but avoided the loss since the Astros put together a late comeback. The Astros now have a 2-0 lead in the ALDS, and Valdez's next start will likely come in the ALCS if the team advances.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Gets ball for Game 2

    Valdez will start Game 2 of the ALDS against the White Sox on Friday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    Valdez stumbled slightly in September, allowing four runs in three of his five starts that month, though it would be unfair to say he enters the playoffs in a true slump, as his 3.94 ERA over the course of the month is a perfectly respectable number. He'll follow Lance McCullers, who starts Game 1. Both starters would be on full rest if the series stretches to five games, so it's possible both could pitch twice in the series if necessary.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Surrenders four in five frames

    Valdez (11-6) took the loss in Friday's 8-6 defeat at the hands of the Athletics, allowing four runs on four hits and one walk with seven strikeouts in five innings.

    Valdez was staked to an early lead but surrendered one run apiece in the third and fourth innings and two in the sixth before departing to fall in line for the loss. The 27-year-old has now permitted four runs in three of his last five starts and concludes the 2021 season with an 11-6 record across 22 starts with a 3.14 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 125:58 K:BB in 134.2 innings pitched.
