Jalen Beeks Opening Friday's ContestMay 26, 2023 | 06:15 AM
Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Jalen Beeks will start Friday's matchup with the Los Angeles Dodgers, according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. He has five starts to his name this season but has yet to go more than three innings, so expect more of the same. Beek's sporting lackluster numbers with a 4.68 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 20.8% strikeout rate through 25 innings. Cooper Criswell will get the bulk of the innings out of the bullpen on Friday. His ugly 7.94 ERA may turn fantasy managers away, but the 26-year-old has posted a 24.1% strikeout rate and 5.6% walk rate over 11.1 innings. Criswell's fantasy value is limited without a rotation spot, but he can provide managers with a few wins as a piggyback arm in very deep leagues.
