  • Cristian Javier Strikes Out Four In Monday's Win

    Houston Astros starting pitcher Cristian Javier looked strong in his World Baseball Classic debut for Team Dominican Republic Monday, pitching four scoreless innings in a 6-1 win over Team Nicaragua. Javier struck out four while allowing two hits and a walk. The 25-year-old took another successful step forward in his young career in 2022, going 11-9 with a 2.54 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, and 33.2% strikeout rate in 148 2/3 innings pitched. The Astros signed Javier to a five-year, $64 million contract extension this off-season, so it is clear that they expect him to play a key part in their rotation. Javier could prove to be a top fantasy pitching option if he can maintain his high strikeout rate while also taking on another innings jump.

  • Cristian Javier Signs Five-Year Extension With Astros

    Right-hander Cristian Javier signed a five-year, $64 million contract extension with the Houston Astros on Friday, according to sources familiar with the deal. The deal contains performance bonuses. The 25-year-old was excellent in his third MLB season in 2022, going 11-9 with a career-best 2.54 ERA (3.16 FIP), 0.95 WHIP and career-high 33.2 percent strikeout rate in 148 2/3 innings pitched over 30 outings (25 starts). He was even better in the playoffs on the way to winning a World Series title. Javier lives off of a fastball-slider combination that has been tough for hitters to adjust to. There will be regression in the ERA department in 2023 due to a very low BABIP last season, but Javier makes for a strong SP2/3 with upside heading into his fourth season.
