Waiver Wire: Christian Friedrich, SP, Colorado Rockies
Not many people have heard of Colorado’s rookie starting pitcher Christian Friedrich. Well, you better get to know him before the rest of your fantasy league does. In his two starts after being called up from Triple-A Colorado Springs Friedrich is 1-0 with a 1.38 ERA and 17 Ks in 13 IP.
In Friedrich’s first outing of the season against the Padres he went six innings, gave up one earned run, and struck out seven batters. In his second outing against the Giants, he pitched seven innings, gave up one earned run, and fanned ten. It was the first time in Rockies’ history that a pitcher struck out double-digit batters in his first two starts.
The 6’4″ 215 lb. rookie is owned in just 26.3 percent of ESPN fantasy baseball leagues and 24 percent of Yahoo! fantasy baseball leagues.Written by winmyfantasyleague.com contributor Zach Greubel.
