Bullish or Bearish – Zach Eflin

By Matthew Kirkeby - 7 years ago in MLB News

Bullish or Bearish – Zach Eflin


Zach Eflin

With 2 starts in the books, Zach Eflin just went 7 innings giving up only 1 run, lowering his two game ERA to 2.25.  He may have people thinking they should avoid him.  Some may even want to get cute with him as a GPP play. I assure you, this is not the droid you are looking for.

His xFIP is 5.30 and he had a below average K rate in the minors to corroborate his sub 6.0 K/9 projections in the majors.  Has has plus control, but that means he will be giving hitters a chance to torch him with epic regression.  Conquering the Braves does not impress.  He is a prime stack target.

I am looking for a lineup that is in a groove to roll up on him.  If you want to be extra patient and selective, you could look for a warm day in a good hitters park (like his home stadium in Philly); but don’t wait too long because he could be pitching in the minors in short order.

I am BEARISH on Zach Eflin, and looking forward to stacking a DFS lineup against him.
