    Probably still too early to feel confident in starting him, especially against the Tribe, but I'm leaning towards doing so. In all honesty, I may never have lots of confidence in starting Rodon, but I know the talent is there. A bright spot for tomorrow's game against the Tribe - 61 innings pitched, 4 -1, 2.34 ERA

    I think the writing is on the wall here.

    I didn't take this as good news either. I would like to get more info from some Dodger sources.

    Justin Turner is not in the lineup on Tuesday against the Pirates due to soreness in his wrist.

    Guess not...... Wishful thinking on my part.

    Definition. Created by Tom Tango, the Barrel classification is assigned to batted-ball events whose comparable hit types (in terms of exit velocity and launch angle) have led to a minimum .500 batting average and 1.500 slugging percentage since Statcast was implemented Major League wide in 2015. But similar to how Quality Starts have generally yielded a mean ERA much lower than the baseline of 4.50, the average Barrel has produced a batting mark and a slugging percentage significantly higher than .500 and 1.500, respectively. During the 2016 regular season, balls assigned the Barreled classification had a batting average of .822 and a 2.386 slugging percentage. To be Barreled, a batted ball requires an exit velocity of at least 98 mph. At that speed, balls struck with a launch angle between 26-30 degrees always garner Barreled classification. For every mph over 98, the range of launch angles expands. For example: A ball traveling 99 mph always earns 'Barreled' status when struck between 25-31 degrees. Add one more mph -- to reach 100 -- and the range grows another three degrees, to 24-33. Every additional mph over 100 increases the range another two to three degrees until an exit velocity of 116 mph is reached. At that threshold, the Barreled designation is assigned to any ball with a launch angle between eight and 50 degrees.

    Down 11-4 Braves may come back - no outs, runners on 2nd and 3rd. Phillip Hughes is pitching.

    I can understand being skeptical, but his hard is currently at 46.1 % and his his FB% is at 46.1. Not only is he really knocking the crap out of the ball, he's putting the ball in the air a lot too. Looking at the BABIP, there is room for the average to grow too, unless I'm missing something, which is possible.

    I really like that Hanson kid with the Giants. I wish the Giants could find him a starting role.

    Am I reading that right, Turner with 5 K's? Maybe I should say it this way, Trea Turner has struck out 5 times? Holy Smoke!

    I guess I'll switch out Bader/Meadows if it can workout that way.....I'll be patient with these two if possible, and I'm thinking maybe a trade may open up the window even more, for possibly both. I'm speculating of course and don't know the whole aspect of players and contracts etc.
  13. Didn't realize how hot he is...A reason I like this thread.

    It may be legit but the timing couldn't have been better, huh? Kenta Maeda has been diagnosed with a right hip strain. src: Ken Gurnick
