Rays' Blake Snell: Strikes out eight in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell (8-4) pitched five innings Thursday, allowing four runs on five hits and four walks while striking out eight in a 4-3 loss to the Yankees.

Snell had won his last four decisions heading in to this tough matchup, last taking a loss May 13 against Baltimore. That was also the last time he allowed more than two earned runs. Even with the rough outing, the 25-year-old lefty has a stellar 2.58 ERA across 87.1 innings with a 97:29 K:BB. However, things won't get any easier for Snell, as his next start is slated to come Tuesday against the Astros.

Rays' Blake Snell: Records eighth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell (8-3) allowed two runs (one earned) on seven hits and two walks while striking out one across six innings to earn the win Saturday against the Mariners.

Known for his ability to generate strikeouts, this was an unconventional start for Snell, though he still turned in an effective effort. The greater number of balls in play did result in him surrendering a season-high seven hits, though he limited the damage they caused by allowing only two extra-base hits. He continues to rank among the best pitchers in the American League, and certainly appears to be in the midst of a breakout season.

Rays' Blake Snell: Strikes out 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell didn't factor into the decision against the Mariners on Sunday, despite a brilliant outing that saw him give up just two hits and strike out 12 without a walk over six innings as the Rays eventually fell 2-1.

Snell was overpowering from the get-go in this contest, as he tied an American League record by striking out the first seven hitters of the game on his way to his second double-digit strikeout effort of the season. This was an especially impressive outing, and he was unfortunate not to get rewarded with a victory, but Snell has really been brilliant all season, as he's now sporting a 2.36 ERA and a sparkling 0.94 WHIP through 76.1 innings. With 13 starts now under his belt in 2018, and the calendar now flipped to June, it's getting to the point where it might be time to start fully acknowledging this as Snell's breakout campaign.

Rays' Blake Snell: Turns in another strong outing Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell (7-3) got the win Tuesday, allowing one run (unearned) on two hits and two walks while striking out seven over 5.2 innings against the Athletics.

Snell finished just an out shy of a quality start, as he had already reached 97 pitches and allowed a runner to third following a hit and wild pitch. The lefty was otherwise sharp once again Tuesday, notching his AL-leading seventh win (he's tied for first) while improving to 9.7 K/9. As one of the only reliable arms in the Tampa starting rotation, the lefty boasts an impressive 2.56 ERA and 1.00 WHIP heading into his next start Sunday against the Mariners.

Rays' Blake Snell: Sharp in win over Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell (6-3) got the win against the Red Sox on Thursday, yielding no earned runs on three hits over six strong innings, striking out eight and walking two as Tampa Bay eventually bagged a 6-3 victory.

Snell kept his strong start to the season rolling, nabbing his sixth victory of the campaign and lowering his ERA to 2.78 by shutting down a tough Red Sox lineup. Time will tell if he can keep putting up numbers like this considering he averaged a 3.79 ERA over his 218.1 career big-league innings coming into 2018, but Snell also has a 1.02 WHIP and a 61:19 K:BB over his 58.2 innings, so this hot start is certainly looking like the real deal in the early going.
