  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Collects win No. 10

    Valdez (10-4) picked up the win in Friday's 9-3 victory over the Guardians, giving up three runs on seven hits and three walks over 6.1 innings. He struck out three. It wasn't a dominant effort by the southpaw, but Valdez still delivered a quality start in an incredible 18th straight trip to the mound -- putting him two QS shy of Mike Scott's franchise record of 20 straight, set in 1986. Valdez will take a 2.87 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 120:48 K:BB through 135 innings into his next outing.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Tallies 18th quality start

    Valdez gave up three earned runs on five hits and a walk while striking out seven over seven innings in a 5-4 loss to the Mariners on Saturday. He did not factor into the decision. Valdez found success by leaning heavily on his groundball-inducing sinker, throwing the pitch 36 percent of the time. He garnered two double plays in the contest to give him seventeen total on the year. Valdez has been solid all season long and leads the majors with 18 quality starts after stringing together a remarkable 15 quality starts in a row. Look for Valdez to take the mound next week in Cleveland.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Posts ninth win

    Valdez (9-4) earned the win Sunday over the Mariners. He allowed three runs on eight hits and a walk with eight strikeouts in 6.2 innings. Valdez kept the Mariners off the board through six innings, but they were able to get to him in the seventh. The All-Star break didn't slow down the southpaw, who has now posted 16 straight quality starts. The eight strikeouts were also his second-highest total of the year. Valdez owns a 2.74 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 110:44 K:BB through 121.2 innings in 19 starts. He's projected for a home rematch with the Mariners next weekend.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Submits quality start Thursday

    Valdez allowed two runs on six hits, three walks and a hit batter while striking out six over six innings in a no-decision versus the Angels on Thursday. Valdez was a little shaky with his command, issuing a bases-loaded walk in the third inning and allowing a run to score on a passed ball in the fourth. He also threw a wild pitch. Despite those obvious mistakes, he was able to post his 15th consecutive quality start, though he's now gone three outings without a win. Valdez owns a 2.66 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 102:43 K:BB across 115 innings in 18 starts overall. He's done well to limit runs and pitch deep into games, which earned him a trip to the All-Star Game in Los Angeles next week.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Lasts eight innings in loss

    Valdez (8-4) took the loss to the Athletics on Saturday, allowing three runs (two earned) on four hits while striking out three and walking two across eight innings. Although he took the loss, Valdez pitched well Saturday, allowing two earned runs across eight frames while throwing 60 of 96 pitches for strikes. The game-tying run against the righty came on a passed ball, and the go-ahead run came on a wild pitch. Saturday's appearance was Valdez's 14th quality start in a row and his 15th of the year. He will take a 2.64 ERA into his next outing.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Strikes out 13 in no-decision

    Valdez didn't factor into the decision during Sunday's 4-2 victory over the Angels, allowing two runs on three hits and five walks with 13 strikeouts. Valdez brought his strikeout stuff Sunday, though that led to control issues as the 13 strikeouts and five walks were both season highs. At one point, the 28-year-old recorded 12 straight outs via strikeout during an erratic span that also featured all five walks and both runs on his ledger. The impressive performance continues a string of 13 consecutive quality starts, and Valdez now sits alone atop the MLB leaderboard with 14. He lines up to take the mound again next weekend on the road against Oakland.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Eight scoreless innings in win

    Valdez (8-3) earned the victory Tuesday against the Mets, striking out five in eight shutout innings while allowing six hits and two walks. In a typical outing for Valdez, the lefty retired 12 batters on groundballs and induced two double plays. It was the 12th straight time he's tossed at least six innings in a start. For the month of June, the 28-year-old compiled a 2.81 ERA and 31:11 K:BB in 32 innings.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Poised for two-start week

    Valdez is listed as the Astros' starting pitcher for Tuesday's series opener in New York against the Mets, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. Luis Garcia was initially in line to start the Astros' first game of the week, but he's instead been pushed back two days in the schedule to start the team's standalone game against the Yankees in Houston on Thursday. With Valdez moving up a day in the pitching schedule as a result of the adjustment, he'll now be on tap for a two-start week. His second turn is expected to come Sunday at home against the Angels.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Posts quality start in no-decision

    Valdez allowed three runs on two hits and three walks with seven strikeouts in six innings in a no-decision versus the Yankees on Thursday. Three of the five baserunners Valdez allowed were in the first inning, which saw him yield a three-run home run to Giancarlo Stanton. The southpaw settled in well after that, but Ryan Pressly blew the save to deny Valdez the win. He'll remain at a 7-3 record with a 2.90 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 75:31 K:BB across 87 innings in 14 starts this year. The 28-year-old has logged 11 straight quality starts and will look to make it a dozen next week in a projected road start versus the Mets.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Earns another quality start

    Valdez (7-3) earned the win against the White Sox on Friday, going six innings and allowing three runs on eight hits while striking out seven and walking none. Valdez continued a dominant season on Friday, earning his 11th quality start of the year and his 10th in a row. He was efficient, throwing 66 of 91 pitches for strikes. Although he did allow eight hits in the game, Valdez was able to limit the damage to three runs and benefitted from an offensive explosion from his own team. The lefty will carry a 2.78 ERA into his next outing.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Winning streak snapped

    Valdez (6-3) took the loss Saturday versus the Marlins, allowing four runs (two earned) on four hits and three walks with six strikeouts in six innings. The Marlins were able to take advantage of some sloppy defense in the second inning to piece together a three-run rally. Only one of the four runs on Valdez's line came directly off a hit -- a groundout, a fielder's choice and a walk accounted for the others. With this loss, the southpaw saw his five-start winning streak end. He has a 2.64 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 61:28 K:BB through 75 innings in 12 starts this year. Valdez is projected for a home start versus the White Sox next week.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Winning streak at five starts

    Valdez (6-2) earned the win Sunday over the Royals. He allowed two runs on four hits and three walks with five strikeouts in six innings. Valdez didn't give up any runs until his last inning, yielding a two-run home run to Salvador Perez. This was Valdez's fifth straight win, and he's allowed multiple runs in only two of those outings. The southpaw has a 2.61 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 55:25 K:BB across 69 innings in 11 starts this year. He lines up for a home start versus the Marlins next weekend.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Electric in complete game win

    Valdez (5-2) earned the win Monday after he tossed a complete game, giving up one run on two hits and three walks while striking out seven against the Athletics. Valdez was very effective Monday, notching 75 strikes on 115 pitches while tossing a season-high nine innings. The only blemish against him came in the bottom of the sixth frame when Ramon Laureano ripped an RBI single. Valdez has now compiled seven consecutive quality starts, producing a 2.02 ERA and 1.00 WHIP with 38 strikeouts over that stretch. He'll look to keep the streak going when he toes the rubber next, tentatively lining up to face the Royals on Sunday.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Quality start in win Tuesday

    Valdez (4-2) got the win Tuesday after he tossed seven innings, surrendering three runs on seven hits while striking out four versus the Guardians. Valdez gave up a solo home run to Jose Ramirez in the first inning before later surrendering one run in both the sixth and seventh frames. The outing was his sixth consecutive quality start. The 28-year-old also avoided walking a batter for the first time in 2022. Outside of one poor outing versus the Angels on April 19 in which he allowed six runs in 4.1 innings, Valdez has been dominant this season, giving up three or fewer runs in eight starts. He owns a 2.83 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with 43 strikeouts over 54 frames this year.

    Valdez (3-2) allowed one earned run on six hits and two walks while striking out seven to earn the win Thursday against the Rangers. Valdez surrendered his lone earned run in the first inning. From there, he allowed only three runners to reach scoring position while turning in his fifth consecutive quality start. While Valdez has only 39 strikeouts across 47 innings this season, he has maintained a 65.7 percent groundball rate. The end result has been a 2.68 ERA.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Cruises to second win

    Valdez improved to 2-2 on the season Friday against the Nationals, allowing one run on seven hits across 7.2 innings while striking out six and walking a pair. Valdez was handed a 5-0 lead before he stepped onto the mound and never looked likely to let Washington back in the game. He didn't allow a baserunner with less than two outs until the sixth inning, when a leadoff single from Juan Soto was quickly countered by a double play. He finally ran into trouble in the seventh inning, giving up a run on a fielder's choice after allowing the first two batters to reach base safely, but that wasn't enough to make it anything but a very strong outing for Valdez, who now owns a 2.93 ERA. He'll look to lower that mark Thursday against the Rangers.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Scatters nine hits

    Valdez allowed two earned runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out seven across six innings Saturday against the Tigers. He did not factor into the decision. Valdez allowed multiple hits in each of the first three innings and was consistently working out of trouble. However, he limited the Tigers to only two runs, in large part due to nine groundball outs and a season-best seven strikeouts. Valdez has suppressed scoring very well to begin the campaign, as he's allowed two or fewer earned runs in four of his six starts. He owns a 3.34 ERA and 1.30 WHIP with an underwhelming 26:15 K:BB across 32.1 innings this season.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Charged with loss Sunday

    Valdez (1-2) allowed three runs on two hits and two walks while striking out two in 6.1 innings to take the loss in Sunday's game against the Blue Jays. Valdez has now posted three quality starts in his first five outings this season, but the Astros were unable to generate much offensive production in Sunday's 3-2 loss. The southpaw completed five scoreless frames to begin the game but gave up three runs in the sixth and seventh prior to his removal. However, Valdez threw 101 pitches in the defeat and now has a 3.42 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 26.1 innings this year. He tentatively lines up to start Saturday's game against the Tigers at home.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Pitches well in no-decision

    Valdez allowed one run (none earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out five across six innings Monday against the Rangers. He did not factor into the decision. Valdez was regularly in danger in the latter half of his start, as he allowed multiple hitters to reach base in each of his final three frames. However, he induced 10 groundball outs to work around the traffic on the basepaths and turn in an effective outing. Though Valdez has maintained a 3.15 ERA across 20 innings to begin the season, he has now walked multiple batters in each of his last three starts -- something he will need to improve upon to remain effective.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Falls apart in fifth inning

    Valdez (1-1) took the loss after allowing six runs on eight hits and four walks with three strikeouts in 4.1 innings in Tuesday's 7-2 loss against the Angels. Valdez allowed runs in the second and fourth innings but was able to limit the damage thanks to a double-play and an outfield assist. He retired Shohei Ohtani to start the fifth but then gave up four consecutive singles and was replaced. Since an excellent Opening Day start, the 28-year-old has struggled over his last two starts, allowing 20 baserunners and seven runs in just 7.1 innings.
