  • Guardians' Zach Plesac: Takes 10th loss

    Plesac (2-10) allowed four runs on seven hits and five walks with four strikeouts in 4.1 innings, taking the loss versus the Astros on Thursday. Plesac was neither sharp nor efficient in the appearance, needing 99 pitches (56 strikes) to get 13 outs. He exited with two runners aboard in the fifth inning, and Nick Sandlin couldn't prevent them from scoring. Plesac hasn't pitched more than five frames in any of his last five starts, allowing 21 runs (17 earned) in 23 innings in that span. The struggling right-hander owns a 4.49 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 83:33 K:BB across 108.1 innings in 20 starts overall. Plesac is projected for a more favorable road start in Detroit next week.

  • Guardians' Zach Plesac: Surrenders five runs

    Plesac (2-9) allowed five earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out seven across five innings to take the loss Saturday against the Rays. Plesac allowed multiple home runs in a game for only the second time this season, which accounted for four of his five earned runs Saturday. Positively, he did manage 17 swinging strikes on 92 total pitches but that wasn't enough to avoid his fifth consecutive losing decision. After 19 starts on the campaign, Plesac has a 4.33 ERA and a 79:28 K:BB across 104 frames.

  • Guardians' Zach Plesac: Handed eighth loss

    Plesac (2-8) allowed three runs on three hits and three walks over five innings Monday, striking out four and taking a loss against Boston. Plesac gave up just one run through five frames before he was charged with two more in the sixth without recording an out in the inning. He's now 0-4 over his last eight starts despite a respectable 3.30 ERA during that span. The 27-year-old now owns a 4.09 ERA through 99 innings on the year. Plesac is expected to face the Rays on the road this weekend.

  • Guardians' Zach Plesac: Sleeper pitchers for Week 17 (July 25-31)

    A strong June raised Plesac's roster rate so that he barely qualifies as a sleeper anymore, but he's looked vulnerable again in July. His matchups against the Red Sox and Rays are nothing special, but if you're intent on maximizing volume, you could do worse than him.

  • Guardians' Zach Plesac: Sleeper pitchers for short Week 16 (July 21-24)

    After seven straight quality starts, Plesac has delivered back-to-back clunkers against low-scoring teams. With options limited for the shortened scoring period coming out of the All-Star break, he's worth another shot against a White Sox lineup that is itself suspect.

  • Guardians' Zach Plesac: Coughs up five runs

    Plesac yielded five runs (two earned) on six hits over 3.2 innings in Friday's win over Detroit. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision. Through three innings, the only damage against Plesac was a solo shot by Riley Greene. The 27-year-old righty then gave up four runs in the fourth, including a two-run double from Greene. Plesac is 0-3 despite a 3.03 ERA over his last seven outings. However, he's allowed nine runs (six earned) over his last two starts. On the year, Plesac is sporting a 4.02 ERA with a 68:23 KBB across 94 frames.

  • Guardians' Zach Plesac: Lasts five innings in loss

    Plesac (2-7) took the loss Sunday in Kansas City, allowing four runs (three earned) on six hits and a walk while striking out five in five innings. Plesac pitched well through the first four innings, giving up just one run on four hits. In the fifth, things got a little out of hand as a walk, three hits and an error led to three runs. The outing ended a streak of seven consecutive starts in which the righty tossed exactly six innings. Including Sunday, over his last eight starts, he's compiled a 2.49 ERA and 37:10 K:BB in 47 innings.

  • Guardians' Zach Plesac: Sleeper pitchers for Week 15 (July 11-17)

    Plesac had his streak of seven straight quality starts snapped Sunday. He had put together a 2.14 ERA during that stretch but also averaged just 6.9 K/9. He was performing over his head, clearly, but I'd still bet on him beginning a new streak this week against a Tigers offense that ranks dead last in runs scored.

  • Guardians' Zach Plesac: Takes loss in quality start

    Plesac (2-6) allowed two runs on six hits and two walks over six innings in Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader. He struck out three and took a loss against the Tigers. After coughing up a two-run single to Miguel Cabrera in the first inning, Plesac settled in and produced his seventh consecutive quality start. During that span, he's 1-2 despite a 2.14 ERA and a 32:9 K:BB through 42 frames. He lowered his season ERA to 3.80 after entering June with a 4.93 mark. Plesac is projected to take the mound in Kansas City this weekend.

  • Guardians' Zach Plesac: Sleeper pitchers for Week 14 (July 4-10)

    Plesac is riding a stretch of six straight quality starts, and his whiff rate has actually been respectable in the past two, possibly because of increased slider usage. You're still playing with fire by using him, but having two starts against bottom-five offenses (Royals and Tigers) makes him potentially just as rewarding.

  • Guardians' Zach Plesac: Quality start streak at six

    Plesac didn't factor into the decision in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Twins, allowing three hits and three walks over six scoreless innings in a 3-2 win. He struck out seven. The right-hander fired 63 of 95 pitches for strikes, including 17 swinging strikes, and exited the game in line for his third win of the year, but Eli Morgan couldn't keep the combined shutout bid going in the seventh inning. Plesac had to settle for his sixth straight quality start and eighth of the season, and he'll carry a 3.86 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 57:20 K:BB through 79.1 innings into his next outing.

  • Guardians' Zach Plesac: Takes tough loss Thursday

    Plesac (2-5) took the loss against Minnesota on Thursday despite allowing only one run on three hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out six. The only damage on the scoreboard against Plesac came on Nick Gordon's third-inning solo home run, but that was enough to saddle the Guardians' starter with the loss as Devin Smeltzer and a trio of Twins relievers combined on a shutout. Despite the disappointing outcome, this was another positive outing for Plesac, who has registered five straight quality starts and posted a 2.40 ERA over that span. The strong stretch has brought his season ERA down to 4.17 after it sat at 5.40 through his first eight starts.

  • Guardians' Zach Plesac: Picks up quality start

    Plesac allowed a run on five hits and two walks with one strikeout in six innings Friday versus the Dodgers. He did not factor in the decision. Plesac has notched a quality start in five of his last six outings after doing so just once in his first six starts of the year. He's also struck out only three batters in his last two games. The lone mistake on his line Friday was a Cody Bellinger solo home run in the second inning. With the strong game, Plesac lowered his ERA to 4.41 with a 1.28 WHIP and 44:15 K:BB through 67.1 innings. He'll look to keep up his recent improvements in a road start versus the Twins next week.

  • Guardians' Zach Plesac: Pitches well in loss

    Plesac did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing four runs on eight hits and zero walks over six innings against the Athletics while striking out two. Despite pitching relatively well, Pleasac did not factor into the decision thanks to a late-inning collapse from the Cleveland bullpen. The two-strikeout game matched his lowest total from the season, but he did manage a quality start and lowered his ERA to 4.70.

  • Guardians' Zach Plesac: Strikes out eight in win

    Plesac (2-4) allowed two runs on four hits and no walks while striking out eight in six innings to earn the win during Sunday's game against the Orioles. Plesac struck out a season-high eight batters during Sunday's matchup, and he now has three quality starts in his last four outings. In spite of his recent quality starts, the right-hander's win was his first since April 21. Plesac has also allowed at least five runs in four of his last seven appearances. He tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Athletics on Friday.

  • Guardians' Zach Plesac: Strong in no-decision

    Plesac allowed a run on five hits and struck out five in six innings in a no-decision versus the Royals on Monday. The only run against Plesac was a third-inning Emmanuel Rivera solo home run. While he's yielded a home run in six straight starts, this was the first time Plesac has issued zero walks since his first game of the season, which was also against the Royals. The right-hander owns a 4.93 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 33:13 K:BB across 49.1 innings in nine starts. He has a 1-4 record that he'll look to improve upon in his next start in Baltimore this weekend.

  • Guardians' Zach Plesac: Struggles against Astros

    Plesac (1-4) got the loss Tuesday after he pitched 4.2 innings, giving up seven runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out five versus the Astros. Plesac struggled to keep the Astros off the bases in this one, surrendering a season-high nine hits while the seven earned runs were also the most he's allowed in 2022. After giving up three runs over the first four frames, the right-hander was tagged with four runs in the fifth, highlighted by a Kyle Tucker three-run homer. Plesac has allowed eight or more baserunners in seven straight starts. The 27-year-old now has a 5.40 ERA and 1.43 WHIP with 28 punchouts over 43.1 frames in eight outings this season.

  • Guardians' Zach Plesac: Quality start in no-decision

    Plesac did not factor into the decision Tuesday against the Reds, allowing two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three over six innings. The quality start was Plesac's second of the year. While the results were strong, Plesac was far from dominant, inducing only six swinging strikes on 95 pitches. He still has not topped four strikeouts in a game this season and his stellar 2020 short-season run is a distant memory at this point. With the amount of contact he allows, Plesac should be considered a high-risk option.

  • Guardians' Zach Plesac: Coughs up five runs

    Plesac yielded five runs (four earned) on five hits and two walks over 6.1 frames in Monday's victory over the White Sox. He struck out four and did not factor in the decision. Plesac got off to a rough start, coughing up four runs in the first inning. Most of the damage came via Gavin Sheets' three-run shot. He kept the White Sox off the board until Tim Anderson knocked an RBI double in the seventh. Plesac posted a 1.53 ERA through his first three starts but he's now sporting a 4.68 ERA after allowing 17 runs (14 earned) over his last three outings. The 27-year-old is expected to take the mound in Minnesota this weekend.

  • Guardians' Zach Plesac: Handed loss Wednesday

    Plesac dropped to 1-3 after giving up five runs (four earned) on five hits and four walks while striking out four across five innings in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Padres in the first game of a doubleheader. Plesac was handed the loss after he surrendered a go-ahead double to Austin Nola in the top of the sixth inning, with San Diego maintaining the lead from thereon. After turning in a 1.53 ERA in 17.2 innings over his first three starts of the season, Plesac has surrendered 12 runs (10 earned) between his subsequent two outings to inflate his ERA to 4.44.
