Salazar seems to be transforming from thrower to pitcher in his fourth full season.
There’s another Zack G. in the D-backs rotation, and while he’s not an ace like Zack Greinke his teammate, Zack Godley has been quite a welcome addition.
Improvement on his fastball and curveball, and excellent location spotting no matter the type of pitch, put Biagini in position to succeed. The Jays have given him an opportunity to start and he’s running with it.
He has posted a 1.13 ERA in four starts for the Brewers. Will this success sustain?
Before we can attempt to figure out why a player improved or regressed, we have to figure out how much his performance actually changed.
