Erick Fedde relieved after bounce-back start in Nationals’ 3-1 loss to Marlins (Federal Baseball)


There was a stretch, earlier this season, when it looked like Erick Fedde had turned a corner in his career, with the Washington Nationals’ 2014 1st Round pick putting together a string of 21-straight scoreless innings over five appearances. There was even an IL stint following his positive test for COVID-19 in the middle of that run, but the 28-year-old righty went into quarantine and picked up where he left off upon returning to the Nats’ rotation, with two of his scoreless outings in that run coming after he was out.

Then he struggled in an outing against the Philadelphia Phillies in which his scoreless inning streak ended, giving up five six hits, three walks, and five earned runs in a four-inning outing after which he was IL’d with an oblique issue.

In four starts that followed his run of scoreless outings, Fedde gave up 25 hits, 11 walks, and 20 runs (all earned) in 14 23 IP, the last of them before he faced the Miami Marlins last night, a 1 13-inning against the San Diego Padres in which he gave up three hits, four walks, and six earned runs before he was pulled, having thrown 57 pitches to 11 batters.
