Leake allowed one run on three hits and two walks over six innings while striking out five but had to settle for a no-decision in Tuesday's extra-inning win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

After delivering nine straight quality starts to begin the season, Leake had failed to do so in any of his prior four starts before regaining his form Tuesday, dropping four straight decision in the process. He'll take a 3.03 ERA into his next outing Sunday at home against the Pirates.

Leake (5-6) allowed six runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out just three batters during Wednesday's loss to Milwaukee.

EDGE Analysis

After posting a 1.91 ERA and 0.93 WHIP through his first nine starts of the season, Leake has surrendered 18 runs over 24.2 innings in his past four outings for a 6.20 ERA and 1.50 WHIP. It's probably wise to expect the veteran to settle somewhere in between going forward, and being selective with his opponents will probably enable Leake to return to being a serviceable fantasy asset. He projects to make his next start on the road against Philadelphia.

Leake (5-5) allowed three runs -- two earned -- on 10 hits and two walks while striking out five batters over five innings during Thursday's loss to Cincinnati.

EDGE Analysis

Leake has now lost three consecutive starts with 12 runs allowed over 18.2 innings. It's a discouraging slide after posting a 1.91 ERA and 0.93 WHIP through his first nine games of the year. Leake still sports a respectable 3.59 FIP for the year and remains a serviceable fantasy asset despite his recent struggles. He'll look to bounce back in his next start against the Brewers at Busch Stadium.

Leake (5-4) allowed five runs on six hits and one walk while striking out five to take the loss Saturday against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Leake was in great shape with a 3-1 lead going into the seventh inning before he ran into trouble, resulting in him giving up a two-out grand slam to Kyle Schwarber. Although he's allowed at least four runs in each of his last two outings, he's been an exceptional fantasy option this year, as he has a 2.64 ERA, and unless this downward trend continues, he should be used with confidence in fantasy lineups. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Reds.

Leake (5-3) gave up four earned runs on six hits and a walk in Monday's 5-1 loss to the Dodgers. He struck out six.

EDGE Analysis

Leake was solid as usual, but a pair of solo home runs and an almost complete lack of run support conspired to do him in. The veteran right-hander was taken deep by Chase Utley in the third to open the scoring and then saw Cody Bellinger tag him the very next inning for a 432-foot blast. On the bright side, Leake's six strikeouts were his most since April 23, and he's now logged at least seven innings in four of his last five starts. However, after not surrendering any round trippers over his five trips to the mound in April, Leake notably regressed in May, allowing six homers in five starts. He'll look to bounce back in a Saturday start against the Cubs at Wrigley.

Leake (5-2) gave up an earned run on four hits over eight innings in Wednesday's 6-1 win over the Dodgers. He struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran right-hander continues rolling along, with Wednesday's effort making him 9-for-9 in quality starts this season. Leake has allowed two earned runs or less in all but one of those outings, and he's now reached the eighth inning twice while throwing under 100 pitches in each instance. His ERA and WHIP are at a sparkling 1.91 and 0.93, respectively, and he'll look to keep it going in a rematch against the Dodgers at home next Monday afternoon.

Leake (4-2) allowed two runs on seven hits over seven innings while striking out five but didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's extra-inning loss to the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Trevor Rosenthal promptly allowed Boston to tie the game in the eighth inning as soon as Leake hit the showers, costing the 29-year-old righty his fifth win. He's now a perfect 8-for-8 in delivering quality starts this season, but his 2.03 ERA and 0.99 WHIP are due for some regression given his fortunate .256 BABIP and 83.7 percent strand rate. Leake will get a couple extra days rest before next taking the mound Wednesday on the road against the Dodgers.

Leake (4-2) allowed two runs on five hits and three walks over six innings while striking out five in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

He really only made two mistakes Friday night, but Willson Contreras put both of them in the seats for solo homers. Leake has now thrown a quality start in all seven of his trips to the mound this season, but his 1.94 ERA and 0.99 WHIP (as compared to a 3.31 FIP and 3.59 xFIP) indicate he's pitching above his head at the moment. The 29-year-old's next start will come Friday at home against the struggling Giants.

Leake (4-1) allowed three runs on three hits and two walks while striking out two batters over seven innings during Saturday's win over Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

Saturday's three runs allowed were a season high for Leake, as he had surrendered two runs or fewer in each of his previous five starts. Already with four wins and sporting a 1.79 ERA and 0.94 WHIP, the veteran has been an excellent contributor to start the season. Unfortunately, his 27 punchouts hardly move the fantasy needle, and with a 6.1 K/9 and 16.2 strikeout percentage during his career, missing bats isn't a strength. Leake will look to continue stymieing opponents in a tough matchup against the Cubs next week.

Leake allowed a single run on eight hits and a walk while striking out five batters over six innings during Sunday's loss to Cincinnati.

EDGE Analysis

It's been an impressive start to the season for Leake. The veteran has allowed one run or fewer in four of his five starts for a 1.35 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 1.95 FIP, and he only allowed two runs in the other outing. Piling up punchouts has always been Leake's shortcoming, and his current 6.8 K/9 and 19.2 strikeout percentage reaffirm it. He'll look to keep rolling in a road start against the Braves next week.
