Bridwell (10-3) pitched seven scoreless innings with three strikeouts to take the win over Seattle on Sunday. He allowed just three hits and a walk.
Bridwell entered with a discouraging 6.60 ERA and 5.4 K/9 through his past six outings, so this was a solid bounce-back showing to cap off the season. While his lack of strikeout upside (5.4 K/9) definitely limits his fantasy value, Bridwell was still able to collect 10 wins and post a solid 3.64 ERA through 121 innings this season. The 26-year-old righty isn't a lock to open the 2018 campaign in the Angels' starting rotation, and in most fantasy settings, Bridwell should probably be viewed as a wait-and-see option next spring.
Bridwell (9-3) was credited with the win in Tuesday's game against the White Sox. He allowed three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out one over 6.2 innings.
Bridwell served up two solo shots to Jose Abreu on Tuesday, but was otherwise effective in his 6.2 inning outing. He was sitting at 79 pitches when he was lifted from the game after allowing three of the first four batters of the seventh inning to reach base. The quality start moved his ERA to a solid 3.87 mark, but he has now recorded just two strikeouts over his past two starts. He lines up for a final regular season start Sunday against the Mariners.
Bridwell (8-3) allowed four runs on five hits -- including two home runs -- over 5.1 innings in a losing effort against the Indians on Thursday. He struck out one and walked two batters.
He was able to stave off significant regression for longer than most expected, but all the contact allowed has started to catch up with Bridwell, with his ERA jumping nearly a full run over his last five starts. The Angels don't have another off day before the end of the regular season, so Bridwell will likely make two more starts (at CWS, vs SEA), but he's more of a risk to the ratios than his current 3.86 ERA and 1.25 WHIP would suggest.
Bridwell (8-2) struck out seven over six scoreless innings in a win over Texas on Saturday.
After allowing 19 runs over 24 innings in his past five outings, this was a promising rebound from Bridwell. The Rangers boast an admirable offense, after all. However, with a 4.56 FIP and 6.0 K/9 for the year, Bridwell's fantasy upside is capped. He also projects to make his next start against red-hot Cleveland.
Bridwell allowed two runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out two over six innings in a no-decision against the Mariners on Sunday.
A mishap in the second inning led to a ball dropping in the outfield and two runs scoring on what should have been the final out. Justin Upton told the Orange County Register that he heard "someone" call for the ball to be caught, but it was not Mike Trout. Regardless, Bridwell was solid, bouncing back from six- and seven-run hiccups. The amount of contact he allows makes Bridwell a high-risk option, but the team context is certainly favorable and that keeps him in the mix as a starting option in AL-only.
