Jered Weaver is winless through the first four starts of a season for the first time in part because Sonny Gray bettered him less than a week ago. For Gray, it was an extension of an impressive start to his second full season, while Weaver limited damage but continued getting hit at a clip he's not quite used to.

Daily SP Rankings: Friday, Apr 17

With the MLB week now over half done, our attention (in H2H leagues) turns to those last-minute pitcher adds to seal up the counting stats or preserve the ratios. Remember, if you’re in a league where you have spare weekly transactions or no transaction limit at all, you can make defensive adds by claiming the day’s best starters even if you have no intention of using them.

When should we actually start worrying about Jered Weaver’s velocity?

Everyone freaked out over Jered Weaver‘s velocity dip on Opening Day. Weaver has never been a fireballer, but with an 83.5 MPH average fastball, there’s some real concern that Weaver finally might have lost too much velocity.

The improvements the team made were so substantial that you could call the Angels “The 2014 Comeback Team of the Year”. However, despite their success, a first round exit against the Kansas City Royals is unacceptable. It is crucial...
