David Hale’s early struggles sink Colorado Rockies

  It’s been a common theme for the 2015 Colorado Rockies. The starter goes out and gives up a few runs early and the offense is forced to play catch-up all night long as the starter continues to slowly give up runs. On Monday night in Oakland, David Hale gave up four 1st inning runs on two, two-run home runs. In a pitcher’s park like Oakland, the Rockies were essentially done...

Three Cuts: Hale, bullpen thrive in Braves' marathon loss to Mets

Here are three things we gleaned from the Braves' 4-3 loss to the Mets -- a 14-inning defeat that dropped Atlanta's road-trip record to a rock-solid 4-2: 1. The Braves bullpen deserves props for their excellent work on Sunday It's not everyday that a major league bullpen gets taxed for 7.2 innings in a nip-and-tuck affair, but that's how things went down in the series finale.

Widely unowned David Hale headlines our two start players of interest (Two Start Pitchers Week Three)

David Hale - Atlanta Braves (0-0, 2.98 ERA) @ PHI (Cliff Lee) & @ NYM (Zack Wheeler) David Hale is only four percent owned in Yahoo! leagues, a number which is far too low. Simply put, Hale makes batters swing and miss. He had 14 strikeouts over 11 innings in 2013 and had four in five scoreless in his first start of the year against the Nationals. The reason?

Will David Hale be useful at all in fantasy?

In standard formats, David Hale is not a guy you will be looking to have on your roster at the outset of the season. He is a guy to keep an eye on, but this article will be driven more towards NL only players and those in deep leagues. Hale is looking like a candidate for a starting gig with the Braves after their pitching staff has been ravaged by injuries during the spring’s...

Braves' Hale chasing MLB dream, carrying on Ivy League legacy

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- At first blush, it reeks of blasphemy that David Hale and future first-ballot Hall of Famer Mariano Rivera could share the same career trajectory, relative to age. But both right-handers didn't make their major league debuts until 25 years old (Rivera in 1995, Hale in 2013); and heading into their age-26 campaigns (with the Yankees and Braves, respectively...
