2024 Fantasy Outlook
A major beneficiary of an offseason trade that sent Juan Soto and Trent Grisham to New York, Vasquez goes from being a long reliever with the Yankees to a strong rotation candidate with the Padres. This is partially due to the Padres' shallow starting pitching depth chart, but there's reason beyond that to give Vasquez an opportunity as a big-league starter. He sits at 94-95 mph with his fastball and threw his cutter, slider, changeup and curveball over 10 percent of the time in the majors last season, so it's a full starter's pitch mix. Vasquez is a 6-foot righty, so he doesn't get much extension on his pitches, but he has comfortably logged over 100 innings in three straight seasons. His curveball is his top offspeed pitch, but his 17.9 Whiff% was well below average, so it's hard to argue Vasquez has a high ceiling. Still, there's a chance he emerges as a solid home streamer in 15-team and deeper formats as long as he wins a rotation spot this spring. Read Past Outlooks

Takes fifth loss
PSan Diego Padres
July 15, 2024
Vasquez (2-5) took the loss Sunday against Atlanta, allowing two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out five over five innings.
ANALYSIS
Vasquez kept Atlanta off the scoreboard through three frames before eventually surrendering a run in the fourth and another in the fifth. He was pulled after five at just 73 pitches while registering six whiffs. Vasquez will head into the All-Star break on a bit of a nice groove. Over his last four starts, the righty has posted a 2.21 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 15:6 K:BB in 20.1 innings. On a larger scale, Vasquez hasn't been as sharp, as he owns a 4.57 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 43:15 K:BB in 63 innings.
