Dillon Gee surrendered six runs on six hits and tow walks while striking out six batters over five innings on Thursday against the Brewers.
Gee has now allowed 10 earned runs over his last two starts, falling to 4-3 with a 3.49 ERA and 1.09 WHIP over 11 starts. Up to this point Gee has been far from perfect, owning just a 51:18 K:BB rate and serving up nine home runs through 69.2 innings, and I cold get worse if his .225 BAA slips back to his career-average (.252 BAA). He will look to turn things around when he takes on the Phillies his next time on the mound. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Chris Iannetta went 2-for-4 with a grand slam against Detroit on Thursday.
Like several of his teammates, Iannetta has been bitten by the bad BABIP bug so far this season. However, Iannetta strikes out too much to ever help out in the batting average category. But he may not be as much of a drag going forward. The more concerning issue is his power, which, going back to last season, has been significantly reduced in his last 500 plate appearances. On the wrong side of 30, Iannetta may not see his power stroke return. Analysis: Brett Talley
