Phillies' Vince Velasquez: Lasts only 4.1 innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velasquez (4-5) allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits and three walks while striking out nine across 4.1 innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Braves.

Velasquez needed 89 pitches and faced 22 batters to record only 13 outs Tuesday. He frequently fell behind batters, starting only nine of the 22 batters he faced with a strike. While he avoided major damage thanks to 19 swinging strikes, he was forced to expend a lot of energy and work up his pitch count in the process. This isn't a new issue for Velasquez, as it was third start in his past six outings in which he has failed to complete five innings of work. He ranks eighth in the National League in strikeouts with 64, but he'll have to work deeper into outings to reach his apparent upside.

Phillies' Vince Velasquez: Pitches 6.1 shutout innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velasquez (4-4) allowed five hits while walking two and striking out five across 6.1 scoreless innings to record the win Thursday against the Cardinals.

For the first time in five starts, Velasquez did not a allow a home run, helping him to his longest start since April 13. He worked very efficiently through five innings allowing only four baserunners on four singles before tiring down the stretch to allow three baserunners across his last 1.1 innings of work. Though his season long numbers aren't all that impressive on the surface, Velasquez has been impressive of late working quality starts in each of his past two outings while walking just three batters in that span.

Phillies' Vince Velasquez: Fans 12 in Thursday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velasquez (3-4) picked up the win Thursday against the Giants, allowing three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out 12 batters across six innings.

Velasquez struggled early on in this one, serving up two homers in the first two innings to put the Phillies behind 3-0. He flipped a switch after the second long ball, however, retiring 15 of the next 17 batters he faced -- 11 via strikeout -- before exiting with his fourth quality start of the season. Velasquez's 12 strikeouts, which were the most he's recorded since he turned heads with a 16-strikeout game in 2016, offer a glimpse of what he's capable of doing when pitching well, but his struggles with keeping the ball in the park (1.8 HR/9) make him tough to trust. He'll look to keep things rolling in his next start, which will come on the road against the Orioles.

Phillies' Vince Velasquez: Effectively wild in Saturday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velasquez (2-4) picked up the win over the Nationals on Saturday, allowing one run on one hit and four walks over five innings while striking out four.

The right-hander threw 59 of 92 pitches for strikes, but he was able to pitch from ahead consistently, firing 17 first-pitch strikes to the 21 batters he faced. Velasquez has failed to go longer than five innings in any of his last three starts, and he'll take a 5.14 ERA into his next outing Thursday at home against the Giants.

Phillies' Vince Velasquez: Battered by Braves on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velasquez (1-4) allowed six runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out four over four innings in Sunday's loss to the Braves.

Velasquez served up a leadoff homer to Ozzie Albies and allowed the Braves to tack on five more runs in third, punctuated by a three-run home run off the bat of Johan Camargo. The 25-year-old has posted quality starts in three of his six outings this year but has allowed a total of 14 earned runs in his three non-quality appearances. Velasquez has good stuff but is still too inconsistent to be relied upon as a weekly fantasy starter. He draws a difficult matchup against the Nationals in his upcoming start on Saturday.
