Pirates' Wade LeBlanc: Summer months proving brutal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc has an ERA of 8.41 in 20.1 innings since the start of June after posting an ERA of 2.56 over April and May.

What started out as what could have been a career year for LeBlanc has slowly but surely turned into one of the worst of his nine years in the big leagues. His ERA on the season now sits at 4.85, and his strikeout percentage is down to 17.8 percent after finishing 2016 at 20.2.

Pirates' Wade LeBlanc: Reverting back to career averages
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc has an ERA of 9.00 in 10 innings pitched during the month of June.

The southpaw was on pace to have one of his best seasons, posting an ERA of 2.56 before the bad month inflated that figure up to 4.10. While it would have been a nice feel-good story to see LeBlanc maintain his impressive season, his career ERA of 4.37 suggested it was only a matter of time until he would revert back to his norm, where fantasy players should now expect him to hover for the rest of the year.

Pirates' Wade LeBlanc: Career revival as long-relief pitcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc is having the best season of his career, striking out 27 and walking only six in 31.2 innings out of the bullpen.

After being traded last season to Pittsburgh from Seattle, the long-time starter has found a new home in the bullpen. Now in his first full season as a reliever, LeBlanc is posting career bests with a 1.01 WHIP and 2.56 ERA. The Buccos have taken advantage of the stamina he has built over his career, sending him out for more than one inning in 11 of his 20 appearances. He doesn't fit the stereotype of a left-handed reliever- his fastball is averaging a pedestrian 86.8 MPH- but he has excelled in getting guys out, and that's all that truly matters.

Pirates' Wade LeBlanc: Provides effective relief Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc limited the Reds to one run on one hit in 5.1 relief innings Monday.

LeBlanc saved the bullpen after replacing starter Tyler Glasnow in the second inning. He neither recorded a strikeout nor issued a walk, but gave his pitching staff a needed break. The lefty will continue to toil in a multi-inning role out of the pen.

Pirates' Wade LeBlanc: Named to Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc struck out two of the three batters he faced Friday, throwing a scoreless inning against Toronto.

He's set to come out of the bullpen as a multi-innings reliever, a capacity he served in September. The 32-year-old doesn't throw hard (86.9 mph average in 2016) but manufactures weak contact rates. LeBlanc isn't in line for late-inning work or counting stats, however, limiting his value.
