Berrios (3-0) allowed three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out seven batters over 6.1 innings during Wednesday's win over Baltimore.
All three runs were the result of solo home runs, so Berrios was fortunate that he limited the baserunners he allowed Wednesday. The three round trippers were the first of the season given up by Berrios, and he surrendered just two through 39.2 innings with Triple-A Rochester. However, after allowing 1.9 HR/9 during his debut trip through the majors last year, the long ball has hindered Berrios' fantasy value in the past. It'll be a trend to watch over his upcoming starts. He now sports a 1.66 ERA, 0.55 WHIP and 9.1 K/9 through his three outings this season, and it isn't out of the question to view the 22-year-old righty as a set-and-forget starting pitcher going forward. Berrios faces a tough test against the league-best Astros in his next start. It will be a telling outing.
