|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/19/14) Cubs pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada worked through a sore hamstring in a no-decision Thursday night at home against the Dodgers, per ESPN Chicago. He allowed one run on five hits and one walk while striking out five over five innings of an 8-4 defeat.|
Over his last four starts covering 18 2/3 innings, Wada has allowed 10 earned runs. He confirmed after the game that this was his final start of the season. He finishes his first big-league season 4-3 with a 3.22 ERA over 12 starts.
Tsuyoshi Wada can't go five innings Friday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/12/14) Cubs pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada couldn’t make it five innings Friday against the Pirates.
Wada allowed four runs on nine hits over 4 1/3 innings. He struck out two and walked two during the outing. Wada tossed a scoreless inning to begin the game, but couldn’t keep the Pirates off the board over the next couple of innings. He gave up a run in each of his next four innings. Three of those runs scored on singles. The fourth came after Wada left the game. He was pulled after giving up a triple. That run would score on a sac fly, and be charged to Wada.
With the loss, Wada dropped to 4-3. He’ll take on the Dodgers in his next start.
Tsuyoshi Wada set to start Friday against Pirates
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/12/14) As expected, Cubs impressive left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada is ready to roll into his Friday night start at Pittsburgh. He had been considered a bit of a question mark with a calf injury that forced him out of his previous outing.
Wada had yielded just 11 earned runs in 42 2/3 innings before his abbreviated start. He is 4-2 with a 2.95 ERA on the year.
|2014 summary: Tsuyoshi Wada was a part of the Cubs' midseason rotation makeover, initially spurred by their trade of Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to Oakland. In going 4-4 with a 3.25 ERA, Wada fared well but he averaged only 5 1/3 innings per start and failed to last as many as six innings in eight of his 13 starts.|
Playing time status: Wada will compete for one of the spots at the back of the Cubs' rotation. Even in he earns a starting role and remains in the rotation all season, he may not throw as many as 180 innings.
2015 outlook: In his first major league season, Wada was reasonably effective, though he may have less success in overcoming inefficiency and a low ground ball rate going forward. There's little about Wada's profile that stands out and makes him worth targeting in standard mixed leagues. Given the uncertainty around his role, it would be a reach to draft Wada before the late rounds in deeper leagues.
