Kris Bubic (P) KC - Aug. 21
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=801045

Bubic (4-6) picked up the win in Saturday's 4-2 victory over the Cubs, allowing two runs on one hit and two walks over 6.1 innings. He struck out a season-high nine.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The young southpaw took a no-hitter into the seventh inning before a 34-minute rain delay derailed his momentum, and he served up a two-run blast to Patrick Wisdom once play resumed in the seventh. Bubic bounced back in fine fashion from a seven-run disaster in his last outing, but performances like Saturday's have been the norm for him since the All-Star break as he has five quality starts in his last seven trips to the mound. Over that stretch, he sports a 4.21 ERA and 34:16 K:BB through 36.1 innings.

Started relying too much on his changeup and the pitch started losing its effectiveness.

He pitched well enough to lose on a bad KC team last year after a very effective season in A ball in 2019. Now, he's pitching great in the Majors, only 23, and getting lucky on balls in play.  Who knows where this will go, but despite not being a modern power pitcher, he looks like an effective crafty lefty.
