Padres' Ryan Weathers: Works five innings in win

CBS Sports
 2021-06-08

Weathers improved to 3-2 after working five innings and giving up three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out four in Monday's 9-4 win over the Cubs. Though Weathers remains a member of the Padres' six-man rotation, the team continues to monitor his workload carefully after he had arm issues earlier in the season. The 21-year-old has yet to top 90 pitches in any of his eight starts, and he'll likely remain under a light restriction throughout the season. The southpaw maintains a shiny 2.44 ERA and 1.02 WHIP on the campaign, but his low innings counts and low strikeout rate (6.7 K/9) puts something of a cap on his fantasy upside.
