Impact For the second straight start, the rookie dazzled but was not allowed to go deep enough to qualify for a win. As in his previous outing, McClanahan struck out five over four innings, and he did so Wednesday without allowing a run. The southpaw issued two walks but demonstrated solid control, throwing 44 of 63 pitches for strikes and tossing first-pitch strikes to 11 of 16 batters. He has allowed only two earned runs over his first eight big-league innings while registering a 10:2 K:BB. Those numbers make a compelling case for McClanahan to stay in the rotation, and he should grow as a fantasy asset as he increases his pitch count. He's tentatively projected to start again this weekend at Oakland.
