Raising Aces: The Top 10 Homers Hit by Pitchers in 2013

9

Doug Thorburn

A "helped his own cause" countdown.

By design, Raising Aces is pitcher-centric, using a multifaceted approach involving mechanics, stuff, and stats to study the game from the hill. But for the next two weeks, we are going to shift the focus from the pitcher's mound to the batter's box, taking a moment to pay homage to the under-appreciated art of pitcher offense.

Pebble Hunting: Casting the Most Unconventional MVP Vote

14

Sam Miller

Creative arguments in favor of several players whom the courageous writer can support.

If you’re one of the 60 writers who get to vote on the MVP award this year, then by all means, take it seriously and vote in good faith for the player you think was most valuable. If you’re one of the hundreds of writers who don’t: Man, I feel for you. This all over again.

What You Need to Know: Jose Fernandez's Closing Argument

8

Andrew Koo and Chris Mosch

With a strong outing versus the Braves and a home run at the plate, Jose Fernandez did his best to convince Rookie of the Year voters on Wednesday.

The Wednesday Takeaway
One of the questions Sam Miller proposed earlier this week was whether backstop Jeff Mathis has had any effect on Jose Fernandez’ increased curveball usage since the start of June. With the Marlins absent Mathis behind the plate on Wednesday due to a bruised thumb, the proposition was put to the test. Being paired with backstop Koyie Hill for the first time all season, Fernandez didn’t shy away from his curveball, relying on the offering for 36 of his 100 pitches. For the young Marlins hurler, it was his highest curveball rate in a start without Mathis behind the dish and just a tad less than his average with his veteran battery mate.

Ben and Sam discuss whether 2013 was a success or failure for the Marlins relative to expectations, then talk about how the Yankees should approach Derek Jeter's age-40 season.

Is Jose Fernandez' success just the latest example of Jeff Mathis' wizardry behind the plate?

Believe it or not, I think you can spot almost the exact moment that Jose Fernandez went from promising young pitcher to major-league ace. I’m not saying I can spot the day that his stats start getting better on a game log; that’s easy. I think I can spot the exact moment.

It was on June 1, in the fourth inning. Fernandez had danced around a few annoyances in the first four innings: a leadoff single in the first (stranded); a one-out walk in the second (caught stealing); a single in the third (stranded); and then another single in the fourth, a line drive on a 3-1 count to Lucas Duda. He had thrown 11 curveballs in the game, nine of them for balls, including the first pitch to Duda. And then this happened:

What You Need to Know: Recapping the Dodgers' Incredible Run

0

Daniel Rathman

Jose Fernandez put a damper on the Dodgers on Monday, but their recent performance is still historic.

The Monday Takeaway
When the Dodgers took the field last night, they did so nearly two months removed from their last string of consecutive defeats. They had logged seven separate winning streaks of four games or longer since their last losing streak. And over that 53-game span, they were 42-11.

Matched up against fellow first-year starter Hyun-jin Ryu, Jose Fernandez set out to do what the likes of Matt Cain, Cliff Lee, and Stephen Strasburg could not: prevent the Dodgers from rebounding immediately from a rare loss. The young right-hander needed 109 pitches to complete six innings, but he held Don Mattingly’s club to two runs (one earned) on four hits and three walks, striking out eight along the way. With help from A.J. Ramos, Chad Qualls, and Steve Cishek, Fernandez came out on top in the “ace-off” and dealt the Dodgers their first two-plus-game skid since June 20-21.

Ben and Sam reevaluate whether the Marlins' early promotion of Jose Fernandez made sense, then talk about where Robinson Cano will end up.

What You Need to Know: Harvey's First Shutout

1

Chris Mosch and Satchel Price

The Mets' ace improved his pacing and stamina to blank the Rockies on Wednesday night.

The Wednesday Takeaway
Matt Harvey has enjoyed a rather spectacular first year in the majors, but somehow, the Mets ace had never shut out a team before Wednesday night (though he did throw nine scoreless on May 7 in a game it took the Mets 10 innings to win). He emphatically ended that drought against the Rockies, puzzling hitters throughout nine innings as New York earned a 5-0 victory. Though the National League’s current strikeout leader didn’t put up his usually gaudy total in that category, fanning just six batters, this performance was a real gem.

The right-hander never looked uncomfortable as the Rockies struggled to muster anything offensively, failing to get a runner into scoring position until the ninth inning. Harvey can be excused for that, too, considering the only reason Charlie Blackmon got to second base was fielder’s indifference prior to the game’s final out. Needing to get that last batter to complete the shutout, Harvey forced Troy Tulowitzki to pop up to second base.

This one goes to 14. An extended struggle exposes Jake Odorizzi, and Jose Fernandez shows Matt Joyce his whole arsenal.

The two longest plate appearances of 2013 (to date) took place two innings apart in Monday’s Rays-Marlins game at Tropicana Field. They both involved right-handed rookie pitchers who were facing batters for the first time in the big leagues. And like last week, I’m going to go over them both.

Longest Plate Appearance(s) of the Week, 5/23-5/29
May 27, Marlins at Rays
Jake Odorizzi vs. Jordan Brown, 14 pitches (tied for longest of 2013)
AND
Jose Fernandez vs. Matt Joyce, 14 pitches (tied for longest of 2013)

Harry examines the stuff used by four first-year starters, including Jose Fernandez.

Four pitchers that made their first MLB starts—or debuted—in 2013 have stayed in their teams’ rotations to make at least one more. These pitchers have combined for 10 starts, covering 55 1/3 innings while yielding 52 strikeouts and just 11 walks—and providing 866 tracked pitches along the way. Impressive.

Raising Aces: Jose Fernandez, the Debut Ante

9

Doug Thorburn

Doug's review of the rookie's mechanics in his promising opening outing.

A number of rookie pitchers toed the rubber last weekend. Trevor Bauer continued his personal battles with mechanical consistency  on his way to walking seven Rays (including the first four he faced), while Julio Teheran continued to struggle with his curveball. Shelby Miller had a successful introduction to 2013, building on his excellent showing down the stretch last season, though his heavy reliance on the fastball raises familiar questions as he gets deep into games.

The aforementioned pitchers had each entered spring training with a chance to win a spot in the rotation for their respective reams, and each player had already been exposed to the bright lights of the majors, but the most impressive rookie on display last weekend was a 20-year-old with zero experience above high-A who shocked the baseball world with his massive leap to the majors. Jose Fernandez made his major-league debut for the Marlins on Sunday, pitching in Miami less than two years after he had been selected in the first round of the 2011 draft out of a Florida high school. Fernandez stepped onto the field as the second-youngest player in a major-league uniform (that Bryce Harper guy is younger).
