2020 Fantasy Outlook
Foltynewicz pitched 51.1 innings in the minor leagues in 2019, first over four starts in Gwinnett to begin the season and then again from late June through the end of July. To that point of the season, he was 2-5 with a 6.37 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 2.3 HR/9. He made 10 more starts after his final recall from Triple-A and went 6-1 with a 2.65 ERA and 1.08 WHIP, holding opponents to a .210 average. It was night and day for him, just like his two appearances in the NLDS. He was lights out in Game 2, throwing seven innings of shutout baseball, but could not get out of the first inning in the deciding Game 5 as he had no pitch command and the Cardinals made him pay for it. The second half resurgence saw him nearly double the usage of his slider from the first half of the season while also throwing more two-seamers and de-emphasizing his four-seam fastball. Buy back in, but as an SP4 with SP3 potential. Read Past Outlooks
