Voth (2-5) yielded four runs on nine hits over five innings Sunday, striking out four and earning the win over the Mets.
While it wasn't the cleanest outing for Voth, the Nationals scored 15 runs, including 12 in the first three innings, to give him plenty of support. The 28-year-old righty allowed two homers, one to Pete Alonso and another to Guillermo Heredia, in the first two frames. Voth finishes the 2020 campaign with a 6.34 ERA and 44:18 K:BB over 49.2 innings.
Voth (1-5) picked up the win in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Phillies, allowing one run on three hits and a walk over seven innings. He struck out a season-high seven.
It goes into the books as a complete game, and Voth has now delivered two straight one-run outings. The hot streak has only lowered his ERA to 6.25, however, and the lone run against him Tuesday came on a solo shot by Jean Segura -- the 12th homer Voth has served up in 44.2 innings. He'll get one more turn on the mound this season as the Nats host the Mets on Sunday.
Voth allowed one run on four hits and three walks over five innings during Wednesday's extra-inning win over the Rays. He had six strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision.
The right-hander surrendered a run during the first inning but blanked Tampa Bay over the next four frames. Voth has a 7.17 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 33:17 K:BB through 37.2 innings and lines up to pitch against the Phillies on Monday.
Voth allowed three runs on two hits and two walks across 4.1 innings pitched in Thursday's loss to the Braves. He struck out four and did not factor in the decision.
Things were looking great for Voth in the early parts of Thursday's outing. The right-hander retired the first nine batters he faced, while the Nats spotted him a 5-0 lead. Unfortunately, Voth seemed to lose his command in the fourth, as he walked two and allowed a two-run homer to Freddie Freeman. He struck out Nick Markakis to begin the fifth but was pulled a batter later after hitting Tyler Flowers. The 28-year-old was charged with one more run when Ronald Acuna took Wander Suero deep for a two-run homer. Voth will once again try for his first win when he takes the ball Wednesday against the Rays.
Voth (0-5) took the loss in the first game of Friday's doubleheader against Atlanta, coughing up five runs on seven hits -- including three home runs -- and two walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out five.
Ronald Acuna took him deep twice and Dansby Swanson once, and Voth has now served up 10 homers in only 28.1 innings this season. His 8.26 ERA and 1.80 WHIP are just as awful, but the Nats don't have any better rotation options right now unless they decide to start the service-time clocks on top prospects like Jackson Rutledge and Cade Cavalli. Voth's next outing is scheduled for Thursday, at home in a rematch against Atlanta.
Voth will start Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader against Atlanta, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
He has given up 19 earned runs over his last 13.2 innings (four starts), and while the Nationals would love to upgrade his spot in the rotation, they don't have many viable alternatives. Wil Crowe, who is starting Game 2 as the 29th man, could potentially displace Voth if he impresses in his second MLB outing.
Voth (0-4) took the loss against Boston on Sunday, allowing five runs on six hits and a walk across two innings. He struck out three.
Voth has now allowed 19 runs in 13.2 innings over his last four starts. No announcement has been made about whether the right-hander will stay in the rotation going forward, but it would come as no surprise if Washington decides to look elsewhere for innings. If Voth manages to make another start, it will likely come Friday in Atlanta.
Voth will stick in the rotation for at least one more turn Saturday at Boston, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
He was quite solid in his first two starts of the season, but has given up 14 runs on 21 hits and eight walks in 11.2 innings over his last three outings -- the worst of which came Monday against the Marlins. Manager Davey Martinez said that he will talk to Voth on Tuesday to emphasize sticking with his fastball more, particularly the second time through the lineup, adding "I'm not going to give up on him." If the Nationals had an obvious internal upgrade, they might be less patient with Voth. They could potentially acquire an upgrade prior to Monday's trade deadline.
Voth (0-3) took the loss after allowing six runs on six hits and three walks while striking out three over 3.2 innings Monday against the Marlins.
Voth made it through the first two innings unscathed before the Marlins jumped on him for one run in the third, followed by five runs in the fourth. He would exit the contest with a 6-0 deficit, setting him up for his third loss of the campaign. When asked after the contest if the Nationals would consider changing up the starting rotation, manager Dave Martinez stated "I'm not going to jump to conclusions tonight," Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. It's certainly a possibility that he could be moved to the bullpen or even sent down prior to his next scheduled start.
Voth didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 8-5 win over Atlanta, coughing up five runs on nine hits and three walks over four innings. He struck out three.
The right-hander checked out of the game down 5-2 and on the hook for his third loss of the year, but the Nats' offense rallied for four runs in the top of the fifth and finished the night with 17 hits. Voth has had one good start and three shaky ones so far, resulting in a 5.00 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and mediocre 12:6 K:BB through 18 innings, but a lack of alternatives probably keeps his rotation spot secure. He'll next take the mound Sunday, at home against the Marlins.
Voth (0-2) took the loss against the Mets on Thursday, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks over four innings. He struck out two.
Voth's outing was ultimately soured by homers from Dominic Smith (solo) and Tomas Nido (two-run). Voth was pulled after finishing the fourth inning with 86 pitches thrown. The right-hander will look to bounce back and go deeper into the game when he takes the ball Tuesday in Atlanta.
Voth didn't factor into the decision during Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Orioles, scattering two hits and a walk over five scoreless innings while striking out five.
The O's didn't even get a runner into scoring position off Voth until the fifth inning, and the right-hander was in line for his first win of the season until the bullpen melted down in the eighth. Voth now sports a 1.80 ERA and 7:1 K:BB through 10 innings, and he'll look to get into the win column in his next outing, a road clash with the Mets on Thursday.
Voth (0-1) took the loss Tuesday against the Blue Jays after allowing three runs (two earned) on four hits while striking out two over five innings.
The 28-year-old earned the fifth spot in the Nats' starting rotation and had a respectable first start of the season, despite allowing two homers. Voth previously lined up for a two-start week with Sunday's game in Miami, but those games have been postponed given the COVID-19 outbreak among the Marlins' players and staff. Voth likely won't be taking the mound again until late next week with Washington set to have this weekend off.
Voth was named the Nationals' fifth starter Thursday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Voth was competing for a spot in the rotation during camp, and manager Dave Martinez said Thursday that Voth will "definitely" begin the season as the fifth starter, with Erick Fedde coming out of the bullpen. Voth made nine appearances (eight starts) with the Nationals last season, posting a 3.30 ERA and 1.05 WHIP over 43.2 innings.
Voth tossed four scoreless innings in Saturday's exhibition game against the Phillies. He allowed two hits and no walks while striking out five.
Voth continues to impress while competing with Erick Fedde for the No. 5 starter job ahead of the regular season. Fedde also fired four scoreless innings in an intrasquad matchup Wednesday, but it's encouraging to see Voth perform so well in an exhibition. Manager Dave Martinez was impressed with Voth's performance. "He threw the ball really well," Martinez said. "He threw some crisp changeups. I know he's been working on it. It was really nice." Whichever pitcher doesn't win the starting job is expected to begin the season in the bullpen, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Voth will compete with Erick Fedde during summer camp for the opening in the rotation created when Joe Ross opted not to play in 2020, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.
Given that Fedde had been optioned to the minors just before spring training was put on pause, Voth could be considered the favorite for the job. The right-hander followed up a strong September last season with a 1.29 ERA and 6:1 K:BB in seven spring innings.
Voth remains in the mix to win the No. 5 starter role when the regular season finally begins.
The right-hander put together a strong spring (1.29 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, 6:1 K:BB in seven innings) before MLB was put on pause, but neither Joe Ross (2.45 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, 3:4 K:BB in 7.1 IP) nor Erick Fedde (2.45 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, 7:4 K:BB in 7.1 IP) had taken themselves out of the running for the job either. Ross was considered the favorite coming into camp due to having more big-league experience, but Voth was arguably the most impressive of the trio. If the regular-season schedule ends up featuring fewer off days and more doubleheaders, however, all three pitchers could end up seeing significant workloads for the Nats, either in the rotation or in long relief.
Voth struck out two and hit a batter without allowing a hit across two scoreless innings Sunday against the Astros, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Voth entered spring training in competition for the fifth starter role and made a strong case with his first outing. He needed only 21 pitches to take care of business Sunday while facing the likes of Yordan Alvarez, Kyle Tucker and Aledmys Diaz. Joe Ross and Erik Fedde are Voth's main competition for a spot in the rotation.
Voth's absence from the Nationals' World Series roster was due to a flare-up of his shoulder tendinitis, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Voth recorded a 3.30 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP in 43.2 innings for the Nationals last season, but missed over a month in the middle of the season with a shoulder injury, an issue which apparently didn't go away completely. That adds some injury risk for him heading into the 2020 campaign, though he's expected to be ready to go at the start of spring training.
Voth is not on the Nationals' World Series roster.
Joe Ross and Wander Suero were added to the team's roster, while Voth and Roenis Elias were dropped. Voth had been on the roster all postseason but hadn't thrown a pitch.
