(6/12/13) Reds starter Mike Leake spun a gem Wednesday afternoon against the Cubs to move to 6-3.
Leake went eight innings and allowed just one run on three hits and a walk. The only run scored on Nate Schierholtz's home run. Otherwise, Leake was sharp, as he needed just 103 pitches to get through eight innings. Leake has gone six straight starts without allowing more than three runs, with five of the six coming as quality starts.
|Mike Leake hit with third loss|

(6/7/13) Reds starter Mike Leake ran up his pitch count as he was tagged with his third loss of the season Friday night against the Cardinals.
Leake (5-3) surrendered three runs on six hits and one walk while striking out three in five innings in a 9-2 defeat. He threw 97 pitches, 60 for strikes.
Leake has allowed just four runs combined in his last five starts (32 innings). He is scheduled to make his next start Wednesday against the Cubs at Wrigley Field. He allowed two runs in seven innings in his previous meeting against the Cubs on April 22.
|Mike Leake coming into his own|
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(6/6/13) Mike Leake had a pretty ugly 2012: a 4.58 ERA, 1.35 WHIP, and 5.8 K/9. But if you look at his game logs, things don't add up -- of Leake's 30 starts, he allowed two or fewer runs in 13 games. And three runs or fewer in 19. It was the collection of games where he lasted three innings and gave up six-ish runs that got Leake into trouble and drove up his ERA, overshadowing his good runs.
A former top-10 pick of the Reds (eighth overall in 2009), Leake gave up nine runs in his first two games this season, then held opponents to 11 total in his next nine. In fact, over his last nine starts, Leake is 5-2 with a 1.91 ERA and 1.20 WHIP. It's tough to divine much from his minor-league stats because there really are none, as outside of a quick stint in 2011, Leake was one of three players since 1995 to go straight to the majors.
It appears Leake may have just had his lumps on a big stage, instead of learning and maturing in, say, Louisville. He's on a nice roll and may finally be realizing the potential of his early years. His lack of strikeouts hurt him a little bit in Roto, but Leake has pitched his way into must-own territory in most H2H Points leagues.

(6/1/13) Reds starter Mike Leake turned in another strong effort as he earned his fifth win of the season. Leake (5-2) limited the Pirates to seven hits and one walk while striking out five in six shutout innings in a 2-0 victory.
Leake has not allowed a run in three of his last four starts. He is scheduled to make his next start Friday at home against St. Louis. He is 1-1 with a 2.88 ERA in five starts at home.

Leake wins duel for Reds' 12th straight victory at Wrigley
Mike Leake combined with Aroldis Chapman on a three-hitter and Todd Frazier hit a tiebreaking home run in the seventh inning against Travis Wood, leading the Cincinnati Reds over the Chicago Cubs 2-1 on Wednesday for their record 12th straight win at Wrigley Field.
|Mike Leake failed to capitalize on his breakout 2011 season (12 wins, 3.86 ERA, 1.18 WHIP) by putting up a rather uneven 2012: 8-9 with a 4.58 ERA and 1.35 WHIP. He doesn't strike out a lot of batters -- 234 in 346 2/3 innings over the last two years -- so Leake's value lies in a low ERA and WHIP. And he failed to deliver last season. Like his rotation-mate Homer Bailey, Leake was plagued with inconsistency, following up strings of promising starts with runs of shellackings. He got his ERA below 4.00 just once the entire season and it looks like he will be the odd man out with Aroldis Chapman's transition to the rotation. On another team, Leake might be a No. 3 starter, but with the Reds' stellar rotation, a 4.58 ERA just won't cut it. Leake is best left on the waiver wire in mixed leagues, but could be a nice bench addition in NL-only leagues, in case disaster strikes the Cincinnati rotation. (Updated 12/3/12)|
