Jeff Samardzija was tagged for six runs (five earned) on seven hits with no walks and six strikeouts over just five innings against the Nationals on Saturday.

This is the Shark's second beating of the month of June and he's only thrown three quality starts in six June outings. Not really the kind of production upon which fantasy dreams are built, but he's still maintaining a strong strikeout rate which is really what the allure is with him. He should continue to maintain a solid overall stat line, so don't worry too much about the occasional blow-up, but be wary of his landing spot when the trade dust settles. You don't want him going to too friendly a hitter's park in the AL. He's got the Nationals up for his next start.
