This week's question comes from Sam Grossman, who writes: What percentage of "quality starts" results in Ws, Ls and NDs for the starting pitcher? What about Ws and Ls for the team? Has this been consistent across time (effect of bullpens, etc.)?

Prospectus Feature: Analyzing PAP (Part One)

0

Keith Woolner

There are two related effects we are interested in studying. The original intent of PAP was to ascertain whether a pitcher is at risk of injury or permanent reduction in effectiveness due to repeated overwork. And in particular, does PAP (or any similar formula) provide more insight into that risk that simple pitch counts alone?

 The following article, written by Keith Woolner with Rany Jazayerli, appeared in Baseball Prospectus 2001.

  • Pedro Astacio pitched very well after joining the Mile High Club in mid-August 1997 after a trade from the Dodgers, which led to high expectations for 1998. Those expectations came crashing down when Astacio had only one quality start in his first eleven trips to the mound. Baylor used him in the same way that he used Kile, which enabled Astacio to toss nearly 210 innings despite his ineffectiveness. Although Astacio had the misfortune of making 19 of his 34 starts at home, this doesn't help to explain his poor campaign. He was equally unproductive home and away (42% QS+BQS at Coors, 40% on the road).

  • Despite being only 23 years old, 1998 was Jamey Wright's third season in a Rockies uniform. As in his previous seasons, Wright was plagued by inconsistency. He was most successful when working on four days' rest (52% QS+BQS), which may have encouraged Baylor to use him more than he should have. Wright was even chosen (along with Kile) to work on three days rest while Baylor mulled over bringing somebody up from the minors to replace the disabled John Thomson. While Baylor should be commended for keeping Wright's pitch counts lower than those of his veteran starters, Wright still finished the year with over 200 innings pitched--too many for such a young arm.
