JABO: Surviving With Jered Weaver’s Velocity

Pitching in the major leagues is almost incomprehensibly difficult. It’s easy to pick up on that fact by watching the revolving door of pitchers who simply don’t have the talent, health, or stuff to make it. There is no leeway in pitching, no slack, no grace period to ease into: major league baseball is a wood chipper that pitchers are fed into with the hope that they’ll emerge...

Stat Sunday: Jered Weaver No Longer The Flyball King

Heading into the 2015 season, Jered Weaver owned the fifth-lowest ground-ball rate (33.2%) among starting pitchers with at least 600 innings pitched this century.
