San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich surrendered six runs on nine hits in six innings against the Washington Nationals on Friday, June 17.
Fantasy Tip: After giving up just one home run in his first 34 innings this season, Friedrich gave up two on Friday as part of his worst outing of the year. Spotty command gives him some element of perpetual risk, but don't overreact to one bad outing. Friedrich is still a viable NL-only starter.

San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich has given up just five earned runs in 24 2/3 innings over four starts for a 1.82 ERA since May 20. However, he's thrown seven full innings just once all year.
Fantasy Tip: Friedrich has been great for San Diego with a 2.12 ERA and 8.2 K/9, but he's walking a dangerous 5.0 per nine innings, which has in turn hurt his WHIP (1.44). Despite the good results, his poor command make him more of a matchup play in deep mixed and NL-only leagues, and he's probably too risky to consider in daily games against the Nats.

San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich allowed one unearned run on two hits while walking three and striking out nine over six innings in a no-decision against the Colorado Rockies Sunday, June 12.
Fantasy Tip: Friedrich has been excellent in six starts for San Diego this season, and he should at least be owned in NL-only leagues at this point.

San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich scattered three hits over seven shutout innings against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday, May 27. It was his first major-league win since July 13, 2012.
Fantasy Tip: Friedrich has pitched well in two of his three outings and even managed to minimize the damage in his third, a sloppy turn against the Los Angeles Dodgers. His 1.1 K/BB ratio is a concern, but Friedrich should have some NL-only appeal, at least in the short term.

San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich allowed one run on four hits in six innings against the Milwaukee Brewers Friday, May 13, to suffer his first loss of the season. He struck out four batters and walked six during the game.
Fantasy Tip: Friedrich pitched well in his first start of the season and could receive another start in the near future. He could be an option in NL-only leagues but can be avoided in most standard leagues.

San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich is having his contract selected from the minors Friday, May 13, in order to start against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Fantasy Tip: Friedrich will make the spot start Friday in place of Andrew Cashner (hamstring), who could be pushed back to Saturday. Friedrich carries no real fantasy value in traditional leagues because he's likely to be sent back down after this start. He was only striking out 6.3 hitters per nine innings in the minors this year in four starts, and he's a lotto ticket as a deep sleeper as your second starter in daily contests tonight.
