Five to Watch: American League Starting Pitchers

10

Craig Goldstein

These junior-circuit hurlers had elevated BABIPs last year, but was it all because of bad luck?

As we learned in the NL iteration of this exercise, BABIP affects bad and good pitchers alike, but that doesn’t mean it is pure luck. Team defense, ground-ball rates and the ability to miss bats all factor in to a pitcher’s likelihood of retaining a low BABIP, decreasing a high BABIP or just producing consistent a consistent BABIP year-to-year.

Below are the top five BABIP affected pitchers in the American League from 2013. While one has since been sent to the National League, there’s reason to believe that four of the five have the ability to be better this year than they were last year. Then there’s Joe Saunders.

The Rangers no longer have the AL's best run differential, and may not have the AL West's best run differential for long.

Weekly Planner: Week Eight

10

Paul Sporer

Paul takes a tour of the league's two-start pitchers to see which are worth using this week.

It’s been a shaky start to the two-start week for several of our American League options from last week.  Drew Smyly and Max Scherzer were both touched up in Chicago.  Jeff Niemann had his leg broken and now sits on the 60-day disabled list.  Ivan Nova and Jason Hammel were smacked around in an 8-5 slugfest against each other.

National Leaguers didn’t fare much better as Erik Bedard, Ryan Dempster, and Chad Billingsley were among the casualties in their first start.  I should’ve known better with Dempster; I gave the reason not to start him within the article—he was facing St. Louis.  They have become a team you must sit your non-star pitchers against.

Value Picks: Starting Pitchers for 5/17/12

1

Paul Sporer

Friedrich and Milone headline this week's VP list

Pitchers are starting to drop to like flies, making Value Picks even more important as they move from luxuries to necessities as replacements.  Cory Luebke has a partially torn UCL, Jeff Niemann suffered a broken leg and hit the 60-day disabled list, Danny Duffy is likely set for Tommy John surgery, Vance Worley joined the DL ranks with elbow inflammation, and Joe Wieland (hardly a mixed league stalwart five minutes into his career), went down earlier this month with an elbow injury of his own.

Preseason Value Picks: Starting Pitchers for 2/16/12

Mike Petriello

Oswalt, Norris, Morrow, and Hanson all make the cut for the first SP Value Pick column of 2012

Baseball Prospectus Fantasy 2012 is GO. With PECOTA and the PFM now available for public consumption, we’re back for another season of fantasy analysis. Today, I follow the first two Mikes by kicking off my portion of the preseason series with a look at a few starting pitchers who may be undervalued in early drafts, plus a check in on the health of one of the most promising young starters in the game.

Roy Oswalt | SP | Free Agent
Mixed: $- | AL/NL-only: $- | PECOTA Rank: -- | ADP: 71st SP
PECOTA Projections:

Fantasy Beat: Bud's Breakout

Craig Brown

Bud Norris is making good on the breakout that Craig predicted last August--find out why he has succeeded thus far in 2011

Last August I wrote about a potential breakout candidate for 2011: Bud Norris. I’m going to begin this article the same way I began last year’s, by listing the top five pitchers in the National League ranked by K/9:

Fantasy Beat: Value Picks in the Rotation

10

Bill Baer

Bill scours his personal waiver wire to find an arm worth rostering in this first week of the regular season.

I decided to cut down on my fantasy league participation this year due to time constraints. I am in only one league this year, the Crashburn Alley fantasy league. The league includes 14 owners with a roster size of 24, standard 5x5 roto scoring, and a serpentine draft. As I was perusing the remaining starters in the free agent pool, there were a few names that caught my attention—perhaps they are laying around in your league's free agent pool as well, and with the analysis that will follow, you have a clearer idea how to round out your roster.

Fantasy Beat: Breakout Bud

3

Craig Brown

Houston's Bud Norris has quietly put together a fine second half of the season.

Here are the four starting pitchers who were born in 1985 or later who have whiffed more than a batter an inning this year.  See if you can spot the interloper:

Yovani Gallardo - 9.8 K/9
Clayton Kershaw - 9.5 K/9
Bud Norris - 9.3 K/9
Mat Latos - 9.1 K/9

Fantasy Beat: Hot Spots: Starting Pitchers

10

Bill Baer

The end of the fantasy baseball season is closer than you think. Does your team have what it takes to make one last push to the front of the pack?

Added to the list

Jhoulys Chacin: Aaron Cook has struggled all season but his last three starts have forced the Colorado Rockies to place him on the 15-day disabled list. Although he has not been recalled yet, Jhoulys Chacin, currently at Triple-A Colorado Springs, will take Cook's spot in the rotation. In 82 and one-third innings before his demotion to the Minors, Chacin put up a 3.54 SIERA and averaged more than a strikeout per inning.
