Junis (5-8) allowed three runs on five hits and four walks with four strikeouts through six innings in a loss Wednesday against the Rangers.
Junis managed to escape a bases loaded jab in the second inning with just one run allowed, a situation that looked like it could have made his night a lot worse, but the solo home run he allowed to Rougned Odor in the sixth inning put the end to his bid for a victory. Still, this was Junis's first quality start since June 3 after allowing six runs (including six home runs) over his previous two starts. Junis has a decent eight quality starts in 15 outings, but his propensity for blowups has him with just a 4.43 ERA. He'll make his next start Tuesday against Milwaukee.
Junis (5-7) allowed six runs on seven hits in a loss to the Astros on Friday, striking out three and walking one in 5.1 innings.
Junis surrendered three home runs in Friday's contest, the biggest one being a grand slam off the bat of Evan Gattis that knocked him out of the game. Junis has lost his last four consecutive starts despite having two quality starts in the span. The right-hander holds a respectable 79:20 K:BB in 85.1 innings, but he's surrendered 18 home runs on the year (which ties him for second-most allowed in the majors). He'll look to right the ship in his next start at home against the Rangers.
Junis had fired two quality starts in a row coming into this contest, but he couldn't keep up the positive momentum, as the A's tagged with him with double-digit hits. He got off to a roaring start to the season with a 2.03 ERA over his first four starts, but he's cooled since then, as this rough outing brought his ERA up to 4.05 through 80 innings. That's closer to the 4.30 mark he put up over his 98.1 innings last year, so it would probably be wise to expect Junis to hover around that number as the season progresses. That said, if he can maintain the pace of his current 1.19 WHIP and 76:19 K:BB, he would continue to hold fantasy value even without an elite-level ERA.
Junis (5-5) allowed three runs on six hits and one walk across 7.1 innings while taking the loss against the A's on Sunday. He struck out nine.
Junis cruised through the first seven innings, allowing just one run while scattering baserunners. Things got away from him just a bit in the eighth, when he allowed a run prior to his removal and watched as the bullpen allowed another one of his men to cross. He still threw the ball quite well, setting a new season high in strikeouts while inducing 17 swinging strikes. Junis has now posted back-to-back quality starts and will take a solid 3.62 ERA into his next start against this same Oakland team.
Junis (5-4) allowed three runs on six hits and four walks across six innings while taking the loss Monday against the Twins. He struck out seven.
Junis worked around trouble all day, taking a shutout into the fifth inning before surrendering a two-run home run to Miguel Sano. He stayed in the game for the sixth, but allowed another run on an RBI single from Brian Dozier before his day came to a close. While it wasn't pretty, this was Junis' first quality start over the last four and he's now tallied at least seven strikeouts in four of his last five. He'll take a 3.61 ERA into his next scheduled start Sunday against the Athletics.
