Astros address huge back-end rotation need with Doug Fister signing

The Biggest Hypothetical Losers of a Raised Strike Zone

Jordan Zimmermann woke up Tuesday morning, read the report from the Associated Press that MLB appears to be considering a raising of the strike zone, yawned, took another sip of coffee, and quietly went back to working on the day’s crossword puzzle from The New York Times. According to the AP’s interview with commissioner Rob Manfred, MLB is “studying whether to raise the bottom...

The Unusually Compelling Kyle Gibson: Just a Tweak Away?

“Kyle Gibson?” That was the first comment from my piece, yesterday, on Francisco Liriano, who embodies a league-wide trend of pitchers subtly altering their approach and hitters seemingly failing to adjust. You see, Gibson’s name was twice invoked in a group of unique pitchers, and, given the context of the groups, Gibson stuck out as something of a stranger in the room. The...

The Royals Haven’t Been the Projections’ Biggest Miss

No team has more conspicuously made us look silly than the Royals. Not in the last few years, for all the reasons you already know. Not many things more visible than consecutive trips to the World Series, and when you look at what the Royals did against what the Royals were expected to do, statistically, it’s natural to wonder what’s up. It’s normal to find comments like this...

2016 New York Yankees: 3 Major Questions

The Yankees made the postseason last season, ending a two-year playoff drought, which in the Bronx felt like a decade-long drought.

Dallas Keuchel and Pitcher Plate-Discipline Aging Curves

The first time Dallas Keuchel broke out, it was because he found a new pitch. Moving from the curve to the slider really pulled his arsenal together. The second time he broke out, it was for reasons that were both more complicated but also just as conventional — it looks like Keuchel merely threw fewer pitches inside the zone, while getting batters to reach and swing just as much...

Keuchel, Astros won't work on long-term extension this offseason

Lefty and reigning AL Cy Young winner Dallas Keuchel is in an intriguing position. Coming off a breakout season that saw him go undefeated at his home ballpark (15-0 at Minute Maid Park) and guide the upstart Astros to their first postseason appearance since 2005, he's eligible for arbitration for the first time. However, even though a long-term contract designed to help the club...

David Price 2016 Projections: What Can Red Sox Expect From New Ace?

The Boston Red Sox and their fans understandably are predicting big things from David Price in 2016 and beyond. That’s what happens when you’re given a seven-year contract worth a reported $217 million. What, exactly can be expected of Price, though?

Padres will only trade Tyson Ross for “a monster package”

San Diego Padres starter Tyson Ross was a popular name at the trade deadline, but San Diego didn’t seem too inclined to move him. With the offseason now upon us and the hot stove getting cranked up, could the Padres once again consider moving their ace? According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, it doesn’t look like it.

Finding The Next Dallas Keuchel

Prior to 2014, Dallas Keuchel was generally an ineffective pitcher. He made 16 starts in his 2012 debut season, producing an ERA and FIP over 5.00. 2013 came, and Keuchel was viewed as a hybrid long-reliever, meant to shuttle back and forth from the Minors. Dealing with injuries and ineffective starting pitching, the wallowing Astros again inserted Keuchel into the starting rotation...

Dallas Keuchel won a Cy Young last night, becoming the second pitcher in as many seasons to complete the two-year transition of “some guy with a 5.15 ERA” to “American League Cy Young Award winner.” Keuchel’s career turnaround, as was Corey Kluber‘s, is absolutely remarkable, though the similarities between the two elite hurlers mostly ends there.
