    Last season our Cy Young award winner averaged about 6.5 innings per start. Welcome to the modern game of baseball. Mostly driven because efficiency in pitch counts are being ignored and pitchers are being encouraged to waste lots of pitches and reach the 100 pitch mark by the 5th inning.
    Why is this happening? To avoid contact or hope that more double plays can be set up? Yeah, I posted earlier that only starter (Miley) is averaging 6 innings or more.

    I'm guessing it's they zig, we zag kind of thing. As you probably know, analytics has determined that everyone should be hitting home runs and small ball is out the window. Well, if it's better for the offense to wait for home runs to score, doesn't that mean it's best for pitchers to avoid giving up the homer at all costs? So they do every thing in their power to avoid it which means lots more balls and strikes which translates to high pitch counts.

    For some weird reason it is easy to forget he's a rookie.

    Fifth consecutive start Vladimir Gutierrez has pitched at least six innings and allowed two or fewer earned runs.

    Gutierrez has posted a 3.02 ERA in his last eight starts.

    Re: Vladimir Gutierrez

    Vlad has made some adjustments since his brief midseason foray to AAA. Most notably throwing the change-up more, curveball less, and inducing a much higher rate of ground balls.

    First 9 starts:

    6.2K/9, 4.2BB/9, 1.8HR/9, 39% GB, 5.29 ERA, 5.95 FIP, 5.69xFIP
    46% FB, 24% SL, 22% CB, 8% CH

    Last 5 starts:

    8.0 K/9, 2.6 BB/9, .9 HR/9, 48% GB, 1.99 ERA, 3.59 FIP, 4.32xFIP
    46% FB, 23% SL, 15% CB, 16% CH

    Exactly. At the end of the day, what more can you ask for than a quality start?

    Its like some are just waiting for the other shoe to drop just to say…see told ya!

    We wait 2 months for Castillo to get it in gear, while this rookie comes in as a cool customer and does nothing but give QS after QS. Give the kid some credit!

    He's still getting a bit lucky, and the peripherals in this last line won't land you in TOR status, but man they sure will keep you in a major league rotation.

    He’s currently a very good #5 starter, who may well get better.

    I agree. He's more enjoyable to actually watch pitch than the higher end stuff guys. Works fast, keeps the fielders engaged, doesn't walk people and keeps the game moving. There have been lots of guys with his profile who've been successful.

    I'm pleasantly surprised.

    Natural pitcher. Excited by the learning curve he’s on and the improvement he’s making. Kudos to Derrick Johnson and the staff.

    He did exactly what you need to do against a poor hitting team. Pound the strike zone, don’t give them some free base runners. I thought today was by far his best game of the year.

    Even the run the scored on him was a couple of cheap hits.

    He has a presence out there that is far beyond what you see in a lot of rookies. Impressive kid.
