Player Outlook
A 31-year-old with a career 5.41 ERA who hasn't made a major-league start in over a year wouldn't ordinarily have any fantasy appeal. Erick Fedde, however, made the most of his time away from the majors, making 30 starts for the KBO's NC Dinos and pitching to a 2.00 ERA and 0.97 WHIP. Those numbers came with excellent supporting stats such as his 29.5 percent strikeout rate and 4.9 percent walk rate. A healthy dose of skepticism regarding those numbers is fair given the level of competition, but it's far from unheard of for pitchers to figure things out in Korea and return to some success stateside. Chris Flexen recorded a 3.01 ERA with similar strikeout and walk rates to Fedde in his lone KBO campaign in 2020 and then returned to post sub-4.00 ERAs in two straight seasons, while Merrill Kelly spent four years in Korea and returned to post a 3.80 ERA across five MLB campaigns. The White Sox will hope that Fedde can follow a similar path, and the fact that he reinvented his arsenal overseas (adding a sweeper and adjusting his grips on other pitches) gives reason to believe he has a chance.

  • White Sox's Erick Fedde: Allows three homers

    Fedde allowed five runs (four earned) on four hits over five innings but did not factor into the decision as the White Sox fell to Cleveland on Wednesday. He struck out three and issued three walks. Fedde appeared to be rolling early as the White Sox jumped out to a 5-0 lead, retiring 10 of the first 12 batters he faced in the contest. However, things began to unravel in the bottom of the fourth when the right-hander surrendered a solo homer to Josh Naylor with one out, followed by a two-run shot off the bat of Josh's brother Bo Naylor just three batters later. Fedde allowed three long balls on the day, the second time in three starts in which he's allowed multiple home runs. On a positive note, the right-hander was able to make it through five innings for the second straight start and still has not suffered a loss on the season.

  • White Sox's Erick Fedde: Allows one run in no-decision

    Fedde did not factor into the decision Friday against the Royals, allowing one run on six hits and two walks over five innings. He struck out four. Although Fedde conceded a single run Friday night, he gave up plenty of hard contact, allowing eight batted balls in excess of 95 mph. The 31-year-old right-hander generated only three whiffs in his 91 total pitches, an ominous sign for his strikeout upside. Fedde is currently scheduled to pitch on the road against the Guardians in his next start.

  • White Sox's Erick Fedde: Fans seven in team debut

    Fedde did not factor into the decision, allowing two runs on five hits and one walk over 4.2 innings during Sunday's loss to the Tigers. He struck out seven. Fedde needed 96 pitches to record 14 outs, but he looked solid in his first start with the White Sox. After playing each of his first six big-league seasons with the Nationals, Fedde spent time last year in the KBO with much success, leading to another major-league opportunity, this time with the White Sox. His next start is tentatively slated to take place on the road next weekend against Kansas City.

  • White Sox's Erick Fedde: Confirmed for Sunday's start

    Fedde (quadriceps) is starting Sunday's game against the Tigers. The right-hander suffered a quadriceps injury during his final spring start last weekend, but he's ready to make his season debut Sunday versus Detroit. Fedde joined the White Sox on a two-year, $15 million contract in December after he posted a 2.00 ERA and 209:35 K:BB across 180.1 frames in the KBO last year.

  • White Sox's Erick Fedde: Suffers quad injury

    Fedde suffered a quadriceps injury in Sunday's matchup with the Rockies, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports. Fedde was on the mound for the start Sunday versus Colorado, tossing five innings, allowing one run on two hits and a walk while striking out four batters. In the contest, he took a line drive off of his right leg, suffering a quadriceps contusion. He reportedly avoided a significant injury, and Fedde expects to be able to make his first scheduled start of the 2024 campaign Sunday versus the Tigers.

  • White Sox's Erick Fedde: May start Opening Day

    Fedde appears to be in line to start for the White Sox on Opening Day against the Tigers, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Fedde emerged as the frontrunner to start Opening Day after the White Sox traded Dylan Cease to the Padres on Wednesday in exchange for a haul of prospects. Fedde's last season in the majors came in 2022, when he accumulated a 5.81 ERA and 1.63 WHIP while striking out 94 batters across 127 innings. He spent last season in the Korea Baseball Organization and won the league's MVP award after posting a 2.00 ERA, and the 31-year-old righty has has been OK in spring training thus far. Fedde's recent success should be enough to warrant cautious optimism from fantasy managers heading into the new season.

  • White Sox's Erick Fedde: Signs with White Sox

    Fedde signed a two-year, $15 million contract with the White Sox on Tuesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. Fedde will return to the majors after spending the 2023 season in the KBO, where he posted a 2.00 ERA and was named the league's MVP. The 30-year-old righty put up a 5.41 ERA and 1.52 WHIP with the Nationals from 2017-22, but the White Sox are apparently willing to take a chance on Fedde after finishing with one of baseball's worst pitching staffs last season.

  • Erick Fedde: Drawing interest from MLB teams

    Fedde is drawing interest from MLB teams this winter after a successful 2023 season in the Korea Baseball Organization, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports. Fedde signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the KBO's NC Dinos last December and went on to post a 20-6 record, 2.00 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 209:35 K:BB across 180.1 innings (30 starts) as he claimed the Korean version of the Cy Young Award. The 30-year-old right-hander had a 5.41 ERA in 454.1 innings with the Nationals between the 2017-22 seasons, but it looks like he'll get another shot in the majors and could even command a fairly sizable deal.

  • Erick Fedde: Headed to Korea

    Fedde agreed to a one-year, $1 million contract with the NC Dinos of the Korea Baseball Organization on Tuesday, Jee-ho Yoo of the Yonhap News Agency reports. Fedde was given a $200,000 signing bonus and an $800,000 salary, reaching the one-year maximum salary for a first-year foreign player in the KBO. The 29-year-old was a bust as a 2014 first-round pick before being non-tendered by the Nationals earlier this offseason.

  • Erick Fedde: Non-tendered by Washington

    The Nationals declined to tender Fedde a contract for 2023, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. Washington kept trotting Fedde out there despite his struggles -- he had the second-worst ERA (5.81) among pitchers who threw at least 120 innings in the majors last season, trailing only teammate Patrick Corbin. Fedde will likely have to scratch and claw for a roster spot somewhere in spring training.

  • Nationals' Erick Fedde: Allows four runs during loss

    Fedde (6-11) took the loss Saturday, allowing four runs on nine hits and one walk over 5.2 innings against the Marlins. He struck out four. Fedde allowed a two-run single in the first inning followed by a solo homer from outfielder Bryan De La Cruz to lead off the fourth and an RBI double from Miguel Rojas in the sixth, one of three doubles surrendered by the righty. Fedde is going through a dreadful stretch in his last nine starts, recording a 7.42 ERA and 1.90 WHIP over 40 innings. Furthermore, the 29-year-old has pitched five innings or more in just four of those starts.

  • Nationals' Erick Fedde: Strikes out three batters

    Fedde did not factor into the decision against Miami on Saturday, allowing three runs on seven hits while striking out three batters and walking none over four innings. Fedde tossed 56 of 87 pitches for strikes in Saturday's contest, giving up three runs across four frames. This was his second game in a row in which Fedde was pulled before the fifth inning. He has completed the sixth inning only five times all year. In his last 21.2 innings, the righty has allowed 16 earned runs, giving him a 6.79 ERA since Aug. 23. He has a 5.29 ERA on the season.

  • Nationals' Erick Fedde: Another rough outing

    Fedde (6-10) took the loss Saturday, allowing four runs on five hits and four walks over 3.2 innings against the Phillies. He struck out one. Fedde allowed a two-run homer to outfielder Bryce Harper to tie the game with two outs in the third, and he later allowed an RBI double by Brandon Marsh. The righty has been dreadful in his last seven starts, turning in a 7.71 ERA and 1.95 WHIP over 30.1 innings. In addition, the 29-year-old has pitched five innings or more just three times during that span.

  • Nationals' Erick Fedde: Earns sixth win in quality start

    Fedde (6-9) earned the win Sunday, allowing one run on four hits and one walk over six innings against the Mets. He struck out two. The only damage on the afternoon came in the second inning after Fedde allowed a walk, a single and a sacrifice fly to start the inning. Otherwise, he was very effective, holding the Mets to just five baserunners on his way to his fifth quality start and sixth win on the season. The effort lowered his ERA to 5.08, and he will look to keep the momentum going in his next start, which will likely come next weekend at Philadelphia.

  • Nationals' Erick Fedde: Early exit Tuesday

    Fedde (5-9) took the loss Tuesday, surrendering six runs on nine hits and a walk over 2.2 innings as the Nationals were downed 10-6 by the A's. He struck out four. The right-hander dropped his fourth straight decision with his last win coming back on June 21, although Fedde has held the opposition to three runs or less in five of seven starts during that stretch. On the season, the 29-year-old carries a rough 5.29 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 80:49 K:BB through 100.1 innings, but the rebuilding Nats don't have any better options for their rotation.

  • Nationals' Erick Fedde: Takes loss in return

    Fedde (5-8) took the loss Tuesday versus the Mariners. He allowed two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out six over five innings. Fedde missed a month with a shoulder injury, and he threw 81 pitches (52 strikes) in this outing. He was solid in his return, with the lone mistake on his line being a two-run home run by Mitch Haniger in the fourth inning. Through 97.2 innings this year, Fedde's surrendered 14 homers, and he's added a 4.88 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 76:48 K:BB. The high walk rate is particularly troublesome, as is pitching for a team sitting in the basement of the National League. His next projected start is a favorable home matchup versus the Athletics next week.

  • Nationals' Erick Fedde: Activated, starting Tuesday

    Fedde (shoulder) was activated ahead of Tuesday's start against the Mariners. He will end up missing exactly a month with the shoulder issue. Fedde struck out four in four shutout innings in his lone rehab start, so he should be able to go deep enough to qualify for the win if he is pitching well.

  • Nationals' Erick Fedde: Rejoining rotation Tuesday

    Nationals manager Dave Martinez confirmed Fedde (shoulder) will be activated from the 15-day injured list to start Tuesday's game in Seattle, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports. To clear room for Fedde in the five-man rotation, the Nationals moved Cory Abbott to the bullpen ahead of Sunday's series finale in San Diego. Fedde, who has been on the shelf since July 25 with right shoulder inflammation, was cleared to rejoin the rotation after striking out four over four shutout innings in his rehab start Thursday with Triple-A Rochester. He tossed 63 pitches in that outing, so Fedde could be capped at somewhere between 70 and 85 pitches Tuesday.

  • Nationals' Erick Fedde: Works four frames in rehab start

    Fedde (shoulder) scattered three hits and one walk while striking out four across four scoreless innings Wednesday in his rehab start with Triple-A Rochester. According to Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com, the Nationals wanted Fedde to cover 5-to-6 innings or 80 pitches in the rehab start, but the right-hander exited after 63 pitches on account of a rain delay. Despite not working as deep into the outing as the Nationals anticipated, Fedde could still be reinstated from the injured list early next week to make his next start with the big club. If that's the case, Fedde could face a restricted pitch count in his return to the big-league rotation.

  • Nationals' Erick Fedde: Slated for rehab start

    Fedde (shoulder) will make a rehab start at Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. Fedde threw approximately 40 pitches during a bullpen session last weekend, and he'll require at least one start in the minors prior to rejoining the Nationals' rotation. The right-hander has been on the injured list since July 30, and it's possible that he'll be cleared to return after just one rehab outing.
