Team Injury Projection: Atlanta Braves

3

Corey Dawkins and Marc Normandin

Chipper's forecasting namesake meets its maker, and it doesn't like his chances.

Team Injury Projections

The Team Injury Projections are here, driven by our brand new injury forecasting system, the Comprehensive Health Index [of] Pitchers [and] Players [with] Evaluative Results—or, more succinctly, CHIPPER. Thanks to work by Colin Wyers and Dan Turkenkopf and a database loaded with injuries dating back to the 2002 season—that's nearly 4,600 players and well over 400,000 days lost to injury—we now have a system that produces injury-risk assessments to three different degrees. CHIPPER projects ratings for players based on their injury history—these ratings measure the probability of a player missing one or more games, 15 or more games, or 30 or more games. CHIPPER will have additional features added to it throughout the spring and early season that will enhance the accuracy of our injury coverage.

These ratings are also available in the Player Forecast Manager (pfm.baseballprospectus.com), where they'll be sortable by league or position—you won’t have to wait for us to finish writing this series in order to see the health ratings for all of the players.

The Braves are consistently among the best systems, and are again thanks to the game's most impressive collection of Latin American pitching talent.

Fantasy Beat: Hot Spots: Starting Pitchers

6

Bill Baer

Three months of the regular season are through and quality starting pitchers are in short supply. Find out which hidden gems could inject some life into your fantasy team.

Added to the list

Tom Gorzelanny: Gorzelanny recently reclaimed a spot in the Cubs' starting rotation following the Carlos Zambrano debacle. You may recall Gorz was a respected member of the "Value Picks" list thanks to a well above-average strikeout rate (9.2 per nine) and an average walk rate (3.5 per nine) in his nine starts before moving to the bullpen. He held his opponents to three or fewer runs in seven of those nine starts.

Fantasy Beat: Hot Spots: Starting Pitchers

Bill Baer

Which starting pitchers can bolster your fantasy roster going into the second half of the season?

Added to the list

Bud Norris: Norris will be activated from the disabled list and will make his first start on Monday against the Milwaukee Brewers. It is good timing as teammate Felipe Paulino has been placed on the DL. Essentially, the Astros are swapping high-strikeout, high-walk arms though Norris has slightly better swing-and-miss stuff. Norris, as with so many other pitchers who make the "Value Picks" list, was victimized by an unsustainably high BABIP (.400). That, of course, did not partner well with his poor control thus causing him to strand fewer than 60 percent of runners on base. Norris is virtually unknown as he is still available in over 99 percent of ESPN leagues.

Bill Baer

Which starting pitchers can you pick up to give your team a boost?

Added to the list

Chris Narveson: Since joining the Milwaukee Brewers organization, Narveson has significantly increased his strikeout rate, and so far this year, he has been able to maintain it with the addition of a slider. He is averaging eight punch-outs per nine innings and has actually struck out batters at a higher clip as a starter than as a reliever (in a small sample of innings, of course). His 5.83 ERA is primarily due to a .353 BABIP and subsequent 66 percent strand rate, thus his 4.32 SIERA should come as no surprise.

Which starting pitchers can give your fantasy baseball roster a boost?

Players added to the list

Hisanori Takahashi: Takahashi has faced two high-octane offenses -- the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Yankees -- in his first two starts as a fill-in for the New York Mets and has yet to allow a run in 12 innings of work. In those 12 innings, he has struck out 11 and walked merely one batter. As a reliever, he missed a lot of bats but also missed the strike zone frequently. As you can see by the averages in the Value Picks table, that is simply par for the course. Also something to note is that the southpaw, in 38 innings, has a distinct platoon split which may be why he has held the Phillies and Yankees in check. His next start will come on May 31 against a weak Padres offense in their very pitcher-friendly ballpark. Get Takahashi while you can. Despite being available in 95 percent of ESPN leagues, he is being snapped up quickly after dominating the Phillies on Wednesday.
