Retrospective Player Valuation: Mixed League Pitchers

1

Mike Gianella

Play without an ace at your own risk.

Welcome to my fourth annual look at retrospective player valuation at Baseball Prospectus. Over the next few weeks, I will be writing a series of articles examining how players performed from a fantasy perspective in 2016. This is the sixth article in a series of six. The first four articles in the series focused on NL-only and AL-only leagues. The final two posts examine mixed leagues, with this article examining pitchers.

Before I dig in, here is a brief description of the charts below. (If you have been reading along for the entire series, note that there are some changes for the mixed league articles).

The rest of this article is restricted to Baseball Prospectus Subscribers.

Retrospective Player Valuation: AL Pitchers

7

Mike Gianella

Injuries, ineffectiveness and plain old bad luck plagued the senior circuit's top arms this year.

Welcome to my annual look at retrospective player valuation here at Baseball Prospectus. Over the next few weeks, I will be writing a series of posts examining how players performed from a fantasy perspective in 2016. This is the second post in a series of six. The first two posts in the series will focus on AL-only leagues, the next two will shift their focus to NL-only, and the final two posts will examine mixed leagues.

Doug Thorburn

Continuing the examine the velocity changes that took place across the league in 2015.

Last week we took a look at the pitchers who have suffered the largest knocks to velocity in the 2015 season, and today we examine the other side of the coin.

An analysis of a disastrous start from one of the game's best pitchers.

The stage was set. The scoreboard operator had a pile of zeroes at the ready. Gunslinger Chris Sale was in town, and he had established a reputation for blanking opponents.

Raising Aces: Best and Worst Mechanics: AL Central

7

Doug Thorburn

The best and worst pitcher mechanics in the AL Central are broken down.

Our journey through baseball's mechanical extremes continues with a tour of the American League Central, a division that is teeming with power deliveries that created bottlenecks at the top and fueled stiff competition in every category. Before we get started, here's a quick refresher on the rules: pitchers must have thrown 40 or more innings in 2014 and finished the season playing for a club in the AL Central.

What You Need to Know: Chris Sale's Revenge

3

Chris Mosch

The White Sox lefty tops All-Star Game skipper John Farrell's Red Sox, plus more from Wednesday and what to watch on Thursday.

The Wednesday Takeaway
When the rosters for next week’s All-Star Game were revealed on Sunday, arguably the most glaring omission from either side was the absence of Chris Sale. The lanky southpaw did miss a month of the season with a muscle strain in his pitching elbow, but on a start-by-start basis, he’s been one of the most dominant starting pitchers in baseball. The White Sox are well represented at the Midsummer Classic and Sale is still likely to make the trip to Target Field—he currently leads the American League Final Vote. But their skipper, Robin Ventura, still questioned how Sale’s gaudy numbers didn’t earn him an automatic ticket to the event.

What You Need to Know: Scherzer's First Gem

3

Chris Mosch

The Tigers righty earns his first career complete game in a duel with Chris Sale, plus more from Thursday and previews for the weekend.

The Thursday Takeaway
Thursday night’s clash between Chris Sale and Max Scherzer was so enticing that it inspired MLB.com to bring back #AceOff.

On a per-game basis, Sale has arguably been the best starting pitcher in baseball this season, but it was Scherzer who stole the show with a complete-game shutout to bust himself out of a string of shaky starts. The reigning American League Cy Young Award winner had been knocked around in his previous four outings, serving up at least eights hits, a home run, and four runs in each of them.

What You Need to Know: Ray, the Rays, and the A's

0

Daniel Rathman

Robbie Ray has a rude awakening, the Rays and A's battle, and Chris Sale returns, plus what to watch this weekend.

The Thursday Takeaway
After holding the Astros to one run in 5 1/3 innings in his major-league debut and then keeping the Twins off the scoreboard for six frames in his second start, Robbie Ray might have come under the illusion that pitching in the big leagues is easy. If he did, the Rangers smacked the southpaw right out of it on Thursday afternoon.

What You Need to Know: No Sale

0

Daniel Rathman

White Sox ace Chris Sale deals with injury issues, plus the action from Monday and what to watch today.

The Monday Takeaway
When Travis Wood stepped to the plate in the bottom of the second inning of yesterday’s Diamondbacks-Cubs series opener, he had six career home runs and a chance to do what few major-league pitchers even dream of. The left-hander slugged half of those half-dozen big flies last year—including one each of the solo, two-run, and grand slam varieties. He needed a three-run blast to complete the home-run cycle.
