In his last four starts, Falter’s ERA has ballooned to 3.32. In this most recent span, he’s given up 15 earned runs, including a season-worst six on May 29 against Fort Myers.
Overall, he’s had a decent season. He is 5-3 in 11 starts and has thrown 59.2 innings. He has shown good command with just 11 walks on the year to 58 strikeouts.
The only concern is his recent stretch. His stuff is clearly still there because he is still recording a decent amount of strikeouts. This bad streak of starts might just have to do with a little bit of bad luck, but after his great start it is disheartening to see him struggle over the last few weeks.
With that being said, it’s a long season. I expect him to snap out of it.
