Struggles in loss to Miami
PBaltimore Orioles
July 27, 2021
Watkins (2-1) allowed four runs on nine hits and a walk with one strikeout in four innings, taking the loss versus Miami on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Watkins had put in strong efforts through his first three major-league starts, but he ran into trouble versus Miami on Tuesday. He allowed a three-run blast to Sandy Leon in the second inning and an RBI single to Starling Marte in the fourth. Watkins was likely pitching a little better than expected as a 28-year-old rookie. He projects to make his next start this weekend versus Detroit.
