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.
Bridwell allowed six runs on seven hits and one walk across three innings in a no-decision Monday against the Athletics. He struck out five.
Bridwell allowed four runs after loading the bases in the first inning and allowed a solo home run in the third. He recorded just two groundball outs and was removed after allowing a pair of hits and throwing a wild pitch to begin the fourth. Bridwell appeared to establish himself as a reliable option with a string of strong starts, but he has looked quite vulnerable in allowing 13 earned runs over six innings in his last two starts. He will look to get back on track Saturday against the Mariners.
Bridwell gave up seven runs on six hits while walking three and striking out two over three innings Wednesday. He did not factor into the decision in a comeback win over the Athletics.
Bridwell cruised through the first three frames before imploding for seven runs in the fourth inning. The 26-year-old has pitched relatively well this season (3.52 ERA), but his lack of strikeout stuff (5.6 K/9) and inability to keep the ball in yard (1.4 HR/9) leaves the rookie hurler prone to the occasional rough outing. Bridwell will get a chance to redeem himself against the Athletics next Tuesday.
