Sears (5-12) allowed four runs on six hits and four walks while striking out six over 5.2 innings to take the loss Monday versus the Mariners.
Sears had allowed a total of three runs over 17 innings across his first three starts in September, all of which were wins.

The Oakland lefty is now at a 4.52 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 150:49 K:BB through 163.1 innings over 30 starts. He's lined up for a more favorable home start versus the Tigers over the weekend....

Sears (4-11) earned the win Wednesday, allowing a run on four hits and four walks over five innings in a 5-2 victory over the Blue Jays. He struck out three.

Athletics' JP Sears: Bounces back against Angels
Sears (3-11) threw six scoreless innings in a win over the Angels on Friday, allowing four hits and two walks while striking out three.
Sears had an 8.25 ERA over five starts (24 innings) in August, but he started September with a much better performance. The southpaw likely benefited from facing an Angels team that has essentially run up the white flag on 2023. Nonetheless, Sears hasn't been all that good this year either with a 4.60 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 138:39 K:BB through 146.2 innings over 27 starts. He's tentatively lined up for a home start versus the Blue Jays next week.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' JP Sears: Rocked by White Sox
Sears (2-11) took the loss Saturday, allowing six runs on nine hits and two walks over six innings against the White Sox. He struck out eight.
Though Sears went six innings for the first time since July 16 and turned in his best strikeout total since June 22, he fell to his 11th loss of the campaign and surrendered six runs. He struggled to keep the ball in the park, giving up a trio of home runs on the day, including solo home runs by Lenyn Sosa and Andrew Benintendi and a three-run shot by Yoan Moncada. Over his last two starts (10 innings) Sears has given up 13 runs and five home runs while holding a 12:4 K:BB. He's tentatively lined up to take on the Angels in his next outing.... See More ...

Sears (2-10) allowed seven runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out four over four innings to take the loss Sunday versus the Orioles.
Across four starts in August, Sears has yielded 16 runs over 18 innings, though he's had three tough matchups in that span. Sunday marked the first time in five starts he's given up multiple home runs, though one was an inside-the-park shot from Jorge Mateo. Sears is now at a 4.61 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 127:35 K:BB through 134.2 innings through 25 starts this season. He's lined up for a road outing against the White Sox in his next appearance....

Athletics' JP Sears: Gives up four runs in loss
Sears (2-9) allowed four runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out six over four innings to take the loss Tuesday versus the Rangers.

Athletics' JP Sears: Falls to 2-8
Sears (2-8) took the loss against the Dodgers on Thursday, allowing two runs on six hits and three walks while striking out five batters over five innings.
Of the six hits Sears allowed, five went for extra bases, but the Dodgers managed to score just twice while he was in the game. Despite keeping Oakland in the contest, the left-hander got little run support and took his eighth loss of the season. Sears has been better than his record indicates-- his 4.07 ERA is far from disastrous, and he's posted seven quality starts across 22 outings -- but such is the fate of a starting pitcher on one of the league's worst offensive teams. Wins aren't likely to start coming in abundance for Sears, but he's not entirely off the fantasy radar, as he's provided some positive stats this season. For instance, his 1.08 WHIP ranks 10th among qualified MLB pitchers, ahead of more heralded hurlers such as Logan Webb, Zac Gallen and Spencer Strider.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' JP Sears: Snags second win
Sears (2-7) allowed one run on four hits and a walk over five innings Friday, striking out five and earning a win against Colorado.

Since the start of June, he's produced a 3.79 ERA through 57 frames, lowering his season mark to 4.09 across 21 starts. His next outing is projected to be on the road against the Dodgers next week.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' JP Sears: Allows three homers in loss
Sears (1-7) took the loss Friday versus the Astros, allowing five runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out just one over 5.2 innings.
All of the damage came on a trio of home runs -- two from Kyle Tucker and the other from Alex Bregman. This was the second start in a row that Sears has allowed multiple homers, and he's now yielded 24 long balls through 20 starts this season. The southpaw is at a 4.19 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 101:24 K:BB through 111.2 innings. His struggles with keeping the ball in the yard make him a high-risk fantasy play, though he's been able to limit the damage by not giving up too many baserunners. That's little comfort heading into his next start, which is projected to come at Coors Field.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' JP Sears: Yields three runs
Sears did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing three runs on four hits over 6.1 innings against the Twins. He struck out seven.
Sears worked through four scoreless frames before allowing a pair of solo homers in the fifth inning. Entering Sunday's contest, he'd allowed two long balls over his previous 23.1 innings. Sears is quietly putting together a decent 2023 campaign; he's allowed three or fewer runs in nine of his last 11 outings, lowering his season ERA to 3.99 across 19 starts. Sears' next appearance is currently lined up to be at home against Houston.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' JP Sears: Tosses another gem
Sears did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing one run (zero earned) on one hit and three walks over five innings against Boston. He struck out four.
After hurling 7.1 scoreless innings against the Tigers last time out, Sears posted another five innings without an earned run Sunday. Sears enters the All-Star break on a high note, having gone seven or more innings in three of his last five appearances, a stretch in which he has surrendered 19 hits and owns a 3.26 ERA over 30.1 innings. Though the lefty has been one of Oakland's top arms this season, he's struggled with keeping the ball inside the park, giving up 1.7 HR/9 on the year.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' JP Sears: Fires 7.1 scoreless in no-decision
Sears did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing five hits and no walks over 7.1 scoreless innings against Detroit. He struck out four.
The left-hander broke a string of three consecutive losses with his second scoreless outing of the campaign, but he missed out on the win since the game remained a 0-0 tie until the 10th inning. Sears surrendered five earned runs his last time out against the Yankees, but he's now covered at least seven frames in three of his past four starts. The 27-year-old holds a 4.09 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 89:20 K:BB through 94.2 innings this season, and he tentatively lines up for one more start Sunday in Boston before the All-Star break.... See More ...

Athletics' JP Sears: On wrong side of perfect game
Sears (1-6) allowed seven runs (five earned) on five hits and three walks while striking out five over four-plus innings, taking the loss Wednesday versus the Yankees.
Not only was Sears' performance lackluster, but his Oakland teammates couldn't muster a baserunner against Yankees starter Domingo German. Prior to Wednesday, Sears had allowed all of nine runs over his first four starts in June. The southpaw saw his ERA rise to 4.43 with a 1.08 WHIP and 85:20 K:BB through 87.1 innings over 16 starts this season. Sears will attempt to bounce back in his projected road start in Detroit next week.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' JP Sears: Handed tough loss
Sears (1-5) took the loss Thursday, allowing two runs on four hits and one walk over seven innings against the Guardians. He struck out eight.
Sears retired the first 11 batters he faced before giving up a single to Jose Ramirez with two outs in the fourth inning. He would get out of the frame unscathed but wasn't so lucky in the fifth, leaving a sweeper up in the zone on his first pitch to Josh Bell, who then launched it 430 feet into the left-field stands. Both of the runs against the lefty came in the fifth inning, and he actually did a great job of mixing up his pitches over his seven frames before being dealt the tough loss. Sears' eight strikeouts were the second most he's recorded in a start this season, and he's now gone seven innings in two straight, posting a 15:1 K:BB ratio over that span.... See More ... See Less
