Zach Davies Added To IL

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Zach Davies was added to the IL yesterday with back spasms. Drew Pomeranz is slated to take his spot in the rotation for Wednesday’s game, although the Brewers will go with a bullpen game that day. There is no fantasy replacement worth a look.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

According to our projection, you can expect Zach Davies to be a bench player or a good option off the waiver wire. His 2.24 projected fantasy points puts him at #92 behind Tanner Roark and ahead of Francellis Montas. He has averaged -1.72 fantasy points in his past 40 games, which is less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 0.48 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#99) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 55%, he is the #81 most highly owned starting pitcher. Zach Davies is expected to improve on this season-to-date's #117 fantasy position rank.
