Phillies' Zach Eflin: Early exit in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eflin didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Padres, giving up three runs on seven hits and two walks over 3.2 innings while striking out two.

Making his first start since July 27, Eflin managed to last 73 pitches (49 strikes) and kept San Diego off the board for three innings before stumbling in the fourth. The right-hander will remain in the rotation for now with Jake Arrieta (elbow) done for the year, but Eflin's 4.57 ERA and 101:36 K:BB through 122 innings won't make him an appealing fantasy option.

Phillies' Zach Eflin: Set to rejoin rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eflin will start Saturday against the Padres, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Eflin was shifted to a relief role following the acquisition of Jason Vargas at the end of July, but he's set to reclaim his spot in the rotation with Jake Arrieta (elbow) headed to the injured list. Across 20 starts with the big club this season, the right-hander owns a 4.63 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 92:31 K:BB in 112.2 innings.

Phillies' Zach Eflin: Loses rotation spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eflin has lost his spot in the starting rotation and will pitch out of the bullpen moving forward, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

It was reported earlier in the week that Eflin was in no danger of losing his rotation spot, but that all changed after the Phillies acquired Jason Vargas from the Mets on Monday. Eflin's move to the bullpen doesn't come as a huge shock, considering he's been rocked for seven or more runs in three of his last four outings (15.2 innings), accruing a 12.64 ERA with 12 punchouts over that stretch. Manager Gabe Kapler stated that Eflin will primarily be used as a bulk reliever, especially when either Jake Arrieta or Vince Velasquez struggles to work deep into their respective outings.

Phillies' Zach Eflin: Rotation spot not at risk
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eflin won't be losing his spot in the rotation despite his recent struggles, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Eflin has been in an extended rut, posting a 10.46 ERA and a 2.10 WHIP over his last six starts. He complained of a "heavy body" prior to his most recent disaster Saturday against the Braves, in which he allowed 10 runs while recording just eight outs. The Phillies appear to have no intention of sending him to the injured list to address that complaint, however, considering the issue to be nothing worse than the typical grind of a long season. The team doesn't have any clear alternatives to take his spot in the rotation due to Nick Pivetta's struggles and the failure of any Triple-A option to step forward, so the plan seems to be to have Eflin work through his issues on the fly.

Phillies' Zach Eflin: Pounded by Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eflin (7-11) was charged with the loss Saturday against the Braves after he surrendered 10 runs (six earned) on seven hits and four walks over 2.2 innings. He struck out just one.

The Braves tallied four runs in the second inning with a pair of two-run homers and erupted for seven more runs in the following frame. It's the fourth straight loss for Eflin as he's given up 27 runs (22 earned) across 15.2 innings during those outings. The 25-year-old will look to turn things around Friday versus the White Sox.

Phillies' Zach Eflin: Loses third straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eflin (7-10) allowed three runs on five hits with no walks and three strikeouts across four innings in a loss to the Pirates on Saturday.

While this was better than his last two starts, Eflin suffered his third straight defeat. In his last five appearances, he's allowed 25 runs in 24 frames (9.38 ERA). What started as a promising season for Eflin has just been sent into a tailspin because of this latest stretch, as he now owns a 4.25 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 91 strikeouts over 110 innings. Eflin will next pitch against the Braves at home Saturday.

Phillies' Zach Eflin: Suffers another rough defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eflin (7-9) allowed seven runs on nine hits with one walk and five strikeouts across six innings while taking a loss against the Dodgers on Monday.

The 25-year-old didn't allow a hit through three innings, and then the wheels completely came off in the fourth frame. The Dodgers scored six in the fourth and then another in the fifth, but the Phillies just left Elfin in the game through six until he eclipsed 100 pitches. As a result, his ERA escalated again to 4.16. Eflin has allowed 13 earned runs in his last nine innings. He also has a 1.32 WHIP and 88 strikeouts in 106 innings. Eflin will look to get back on track at the Pirates on Saturday.

Phillies' Zach Eflin: Gets roughed up in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eflin (7-8) suffered the loss against Atlanta on Thursday, pitching three innings and giving up seven runs (six earned) on seven hits and two walks while striking out three.

Eflin simply had no way of stopping the Braves' offense, giving up a pair of runs in both the first and second innings and three more in the third. Five of the seven hits he allowed went for extra bases, including home runs off the bats of Danby Swanson and Ozzie Albies. The 25-year-old has been mostly effective this season but has seen his numbers skewed by three different starts in which he has given up six earned runs. Overall, he has posted a 3.78 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 83:26 K:BB in 100 innings.

Phillies' Zach Eflin: Strikes out three in quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eflin allowed three runs on eight hits with one walk and three strikeouts across six innings in a no-decision against the Marlins on Saturday.

The right-hander placed the Phillies in a position to win, throwing his fourth quality start in his last five appearances, but Eflin is just 2-2 during that stretch. Eflin is 7-7 with a 3.34 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 80 strikeouts in 97 innings this season. His next start will come on the road against the Mets on Friday.

Phillies' Zach Eflin: Carried to win by offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eflin (7-7) picked up the win Monday, surrendering six runs on 11 hits -- including three home runs -- and a walk over five innings while striking out four in a 13-7 victory over the Mets.

The two teams combined for eight homers, but all four of the Mets' blasts came with the bases empty, allowing Eflin to minimize the damage and leave with an 8-6 lead after 82 pitches (58 strikes). The right-hander will take a 3.26 ERA and 77:23 K:BB through 91 innings into his next start Saturday in Miami.

Phillies' Zach Eflin: Strikes out seven in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eflin (6-7) allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits with seven strikeouts and three walks across six innings while taking a loss against the Nationals on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old has been on a bit of a strikeout spree, punching out 16 in his last 14 frames, although both outings were losses. Eflin only allowed five runs in those two starts combined, only to be done in by little run support in both defeats. Owners may need to be wary of his 4.00 FIP, but Eflin could have a much better record. He is 6-7 with a 2.83 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 73 strikeouts in 86 innings this season. His next start is scheduled for Sunday at home against the Marlins.

Phillies' Zach Eflin: Fans nine in tough loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eflin (6-6) took the loss Wednesday as the Phillies fell 2-0 to the Diamondbacks, allowing two runs on five hits and a walk over eight innings while striking out nine.

The nine K's tied the right-hander's career high, but his eighth quality start of the season went to waste when the Philly offense couldn't solve Merrill Kelly. Eflin will carry a 2.81 ERA and 66:19 K:BB through 80 innings into his next outing Tuesday, on the road against the Nationals.

Phillies' Zach Eflin: Captures win in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eflin (6-5) allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits with six strikeouts and four walks across 6.1 innings while earning a victory against the Reds on Friday.

The 25-year-old was wild in his return after missing his last start due to mid-back tightness and yielded a homer in the first inning. Following that frame, he only allowed one more unearned run. His seven strikeouts were his most in three weeks, and this was also his first win since May 11. Eflin now has a 2.88 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 57 strikeouts in 72 innings. His next start will come Wednesday at home against the Diamondbacks.

Phillies' Zach Eflin: Activated for Friday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eflin (back) was activated off the 10-day injured list ahead of Friday's game against the Reds.

Eflin will end up missing just one start after landing on the injured list with mid-back tightness toward the end of May. The 25-year-old has been reliable so far in 2019 with a 3.02 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 51:14 K:BB through 11 starts.

June 5, 2019 11:00 AM
Phillies' Zach Eflin: Will return to start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eflin (back) will be activated off the 10-day injured list to start Friday versus the Reds, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Eflin landed on the IL last week with mid-back tightness but will return to the starting rotation after missing just one start. The 25-year-old struggled in his previous outing May 26, allowing three runs over 3.2 innings at Milwaukee. Eflin has a 3.02 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 51:14 K:BB through 11 starts this year.

May 31, 2019 05:24 PM
Phillies' Zach Eflin: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eflin was placed on the 10-day injured list with mid-back tightness Friday.

The injury doesn't sound like an overly serious one, and the transaction was made retroactive to Tuesday, so there's a chance Eflin returns next Friday against the Reds after missing just one start. The back injury could perhaps explain Eflin's poor showing his last time out, when he lasted just 3.2 innings Sunday against the Brewers, his shortest outing of the year. Cole Irvin was recalled to take his place in the rotation and will start Saturday against the Dodgers.

Phillies' Zach Eflin: Chased in fourth inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eflin (5-5) yielded three runs on six hits and one walk in 3.2 innings Sunday, striking out four and taking the loss against Milwaukee.

Eflin got through two frames unscathed but allowed homers in the third and fourth innings. It was the first time he'd allowed more than one long ball in a start since April 13. Eflin came down with a stomach bug approximately two hours prior to first pitch, which may have contributed to his struggles, per Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic. Even with the ugly outing, Eflin owns a solid 3.02 ERA and 51:14 K:BB across 65.2 frames in 2019. The 25-year-old will take on the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Saturday.

Phillies' Zach Eflin: Labors through quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eflin allowed one run on six hits and four walks over six innings during Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Cubs. He struck out two and did not factor in the decision.

Eflin issued his highest walk total of the season but managed to work his way out of trouble all game long, limiting the Cubs to just the one run. The right-hander was set up to earn his sixth victory, but Juan Nicasio was unable to close the door during the ninth inning. Eflin has a 2.76 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 47:13 K:BB through 10 starts and lines up to pitch Sunday at Milwaukee.

Phillies' Zach Eflin: Three-game winning streak snapped
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eflin (5-4) allowed four runs on seven hits with seven strikeouts and two walks across five innings while taking the loss against the Brewers on Thursday.

This performance snapped a three-game streak where Eflin was 3-0 with a 0.72 ERA. While the seven strikeouts was his in a game since April 2, the Brewers scored in every inning but one against Eflin. Before Thursday, Eflin hadn't allowed four runs in a game since April 13. He is now 5-4 with a 2.89 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 45 strikeouts in 56 innings. Eflin will pitch next against the Cubs on Tuesday.

Phillies' Zach Eflin: Delivers four-hit shutout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eflin (5-3) earned the win against the Royals on Saturday by allowing only four hits and no runs in a complete-game effort. He struck out seven and did not walk a batter.

Eflin allowed only two runners into scoring position all game as he pounded the strike zone with 76 strikes in 110 pitches. It's the 25-year-old's second complete game of the year and he has now allowed two runs on 15 hits and two walks over his last three starts, covering 25 innings. Eflin will seek his fourth straight victory Friday versus the Rockies.
