Can Jeff Samardzija be trusted as keeper material?

by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/25/14) A year has made all the difference for Jeff Samardzija. Just 12 months ago, he was reaching the end of a slump with the Cubs that lasted nearly four months and produced a 5.15 ERA over 21 starts. Now with the Athletics, Samardzija is finishing off a season marked by consistent and marked improvement.

In my Solving the Riddle series on the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, I've been taking a closer look at players like Samardzija who were sending mixed signals to Fantasy owners heading into 2014. In Samardzija's case, his current season's body of work appears to send a clear message that he can be trusted heading into next season's drafts. For those who remember his inconsistencies of a year ago, there may still be questions about how worthy Samardzija is as a keeper.

I make my case for considering Samardzija as a top 20 starting pitcher for 2015 in the latest installment of the series. His ability to keep the ball in the park is an important factor, but you can get the full analysis here.

Jeff Samardzija twirls a gem in win over Angels

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/23/14) Athletics pitcher Jeff Samardzija turned in a gem Monday night at home against the Angels, improving to 7-12 on the year. He allowed one unearned run on five hits and no walks while striking out three over seven innings of an 8-4 victory.

Samardzija has not permitted a run over his last two starts (15 innings). He owns a 2.88 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP over 32 starts (212 2/3 innings). His final start of the regular season will come Saturday at Texas.

Jeff Samardzija strikes out 10 in gem vs. Rangers

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/18/14) Athletics pitcher Jeff Samardzija didn't factor into the decision Wednesday despite giving up just four hits in eight scoreless innings while striking out 10 and walking none in his team's 6-1 defeat against the Rangers.

Samardzija matched his season high for strikeouts in the gem, and he's now delivered 15 innings of scoreless baseball over his last two starts. However, the bullpen blew his lead in the ninth inning to keep him at 6-12. Despite his record, he's been excellent this season, posting a 2.98 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 190:43 K:BB ratio in 205 2/3 innings. Samardzija is slated to face the Angels Monday.

Athletics reorganize starting rotation

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/15/14) To better align their starting rotation for the end of the season, the Athletics have decided to push Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel back a day and move Scott Kazmir and Sonny Gray up a day. Kazmir will now start the first game of a three-game series against the Rangers Tuesday, followed by Samardzija and Gray. Hammel will start the first game of a three-game series against the Phillies Friday, followed by Jon Lester.

The move allows the Athletics to start Gray on the final day of the regular season rather than Hammel.

Jeff Samardzija can't win despite scoreless start

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/10/14) Athletics pitcher Jeff Samardzija picked up a no-decision Wednesday against the White Sox.

Samardzija allowed six hits over seven scoreless innings. He struck out six and walked two during the outing. Samardzija nearly got himself in trouble during the first inning. A leadoff single was erased by a double play. Samardzija then gave up a double to Jose Abreu, but got through the inning without giving up a run. Another leadoff single was erased by a double play to start the third inning. Samardzija also put two men on in each the fifth and sixth inning, but worked out of trouble. 

The White Sox mounted a comeback in the bottom of the eighth, sticking Samardzija with the no-decision. He'll take on the Rangers in his next start.
