  1. 6/13 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Rays fouled off like 15 pitches in the 1st against Happ. No runs but ended up with 30 pitches. Not a good start for QS leagues.

    Which is why I said second half, not half a season. We don't even know when he comes back. He may be back before the ASB. Also, the vast majority of baseball fans refer to after the ASB as the second half even though there aren't 81 games left in the season. Go find some other hairs to split.

    Marlins manager Don Mattingly indicated Wednesday that Kyle Barraclough could take over as the team's closer. Brad Ziegler blew a save and took another loss Wednesday night against the Padres, falling to 0-5 on the season with a hideous 7.83 ERA. It was his first blown save of the 2018 campaign, but he's really been dreadful all year. Barraclough, meanwhile, holds a dominant 1.48 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, and 27 strikeouts through 24 1/3 frames. Mattingly also mentioned Drew Steckenrider as an option for save opportunities, but he's sitting on a 5.01 ERA. Barraclough is the reliever to own right now in Miami. May 31 - 10:52 AM Source: Marlins.mlb.com Under the hood is a little ugly though. .130 BABIP, 90.5% LOB%, still at 5.5BB/9, hard hit % at highest in his career (37.5%). Regression fairies are not going to be nice to him.

    My league has 5DL spots so I plucked him off FA and put him there. Maybe this gives his toe time to heal and for him to work on his timing in AAA and have another strong second half. Lightning in a bottle chance but worth it at no cost.

    The fact that they haven't, and the fact that he pinch hit (successfully) the night after the injury, gives me hope that it isn't going to be a super long-term absence. If it were a no doubter that he is going to be out for a while wouldn't they have done it immediately once news hit yesterday afternoon, even if they didn't know the exact extent of the injury pending further evaluation in Philly?

    Also, what's up with the .586 OPS against RHP over 139AB? OPS of .780 against righties last season.

    The decrease in walk rate is a pretty huge deal. Looking at his career, he's never had a BB% this low at any level. If that can start turning around quickly I'm not overly worried but at 200+ plate appearance sample size is starting to make this look like a legitimate approach change and it isn't a good one.

    struggling with that decision myself. Wonder if the 120+ pitch outing last time out if going to have an effect tonight.

    It seems kind of irresponsible if PIT management doesn't put him on the DL to rest for atleast the minimum 10 days, just to exercise caution. Forearm irritation is generally a precursor to TJS so you don't want to mess around even if Vazquez is saying he's feeling OK. Rest him for the 10 days and then reevaluate.

    SSS but Houston hitters with only a .563 OPS off him (18 ABs)

    Drop city for me if they don't DL him. I'm not going to try and guess when he's going to decide his fingers are a little tingly and he's going to pack it in and get his tits ripped.
