Astros' Lance McCullers: Wins without best stuff
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCullers (3-1) allowed one run on eight hits, a walk and two hit batsmen while striking out three over six innings in Sunday's 7-1 win over the White Sox.

McCullers had baserunners on in five of his six innings and clearly didn't have his best stuff. Still, he stuck to the script of throwing more two-seamers and changeups along with his curve and navigated any potential damage. As for the issues he's been having facing batters a third time, of the eight batters that got a look at him three times, McCullers allowed two singles and hit a batter. Not a bad effort overall considering his wobbly command. His next start is scheduled for Friday at home against the Athletics.

Astros' Lance McCullers: Alters approach, wins Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCullers allowed one run on one hit and one walk while striking out 11 in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Mariners.

McCullers had apparently heard enough about the problems he was having when opposing batters got a third look at him. Prior to Tuesday, the 14 batters seeing him a third time slashed .769/.786/1.308. On Tuesday, he retired all five Mariners that got a third look at him. He incorporated more changeups and two-seamers to his mix along with his signature curveball and produced his best game of the season. This altered approach is something he's been working on since spring training, but like changing any habit, it's not always comfortable. McCullers should take Tuesday's results to fuel his next start Sunday in Chicago against the White Sox.

Astros' Lance McCullers: Has career-worst start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCullers allowed a career-high eight runs on seven hits and six walks while striking out six over 3.2 innings in Wednesday's 9-8 loss to the Twins.

McCullers dig a big hole for the Astros, who fell behind, 8-1, when the fourth inning went sideways on the right-hander who walked the first two men of the inning. Each runner came around to score and more followed. There's been a trend of opposing batters figuring out McCullers the third time through the lineup and that played out again Wednesday. Five of the six batters he faced a third time reached base safely, including Max Kepler who walked and had a two-run home run that chased McCullers. He was able to avoid picking up the loss thanks to Houston's resilient lineup, who tied the game late before the Twins won it walk-off fashion. The Astros will be happy to leave of cold Minnesota after losing two of three to the Twins while walking 14 men in the two losses. McCullers, whose ERA rose to 7.71, will try to regroup in time next Tuesday's start against the Mariners in Seattle.

Astros' Lance McCullers: Third time no charm
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCullers' start Friday began to unravel in the fifth inning when he was facing San Diego hitters for a third time through the lineup, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Not all of McCullers' problems occurred the third time trough the order -- runners reached base in each of the first four innings -- but it only cost him when batters got a third look at the curveball master. Four of the five batters he faced a third time produced a double and three singles. That comes on the heels of his previous start against the Rangers when two of the three batters seeing him a third time reached base safely via a hit. Going back to 2017, 118 opponents seeing McCullers a third time slugged .567 with a 1.000 OPS. The takeaway is that McCullers will be susceptible in games where Houston's offense doesn't give him a lead. That could mean a higher ERA, a higher WHIP and lost opportunities to win.

Astros' Lance McCullers: Takes loss against Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCullers (1-1) took the loss against San Diego on Friday, giving up three runs (two earned) on seven hits with seven strikeouts and three walks in Houston's 4-1 defeat.

McCullers didn't miss a start after he was hit in the ankle by a comebacker in his last outing, and although he wasn't at his absolute sharpest, he still managed a decent stat line and was unlucky to get outdueled by Luis Perdomo. McCullers now has a 3.48 ERA along with 17 strikeouts against just four walks to start off his 2018 campaign.
