His velo has seemed fine from watching. Usually 94-97 with consistency. He dropped a table on his foot being a doofus and plays Fortnite until 3:00 in the morning. Those are his bigger issues. At least pick a good game to get addicted to, Fortnite is beyond lame, bro.

Not good, but similar to where he was to start the year and 2017 second half. At least that's how it looks on mobile.

he did kind of look like crap, big bags under his eyes.

 

I'm pretty sure that's just what he looks like. But yea, he hasn't been very good lately.

I might sell if he has a strong bounce back game.

Either the toe injury is bothering him or he was a one year wonder

I'm hoping my reaction is the correct one... 😀

Or it's something mechanical.  Right now, who knows what it really is.  I don't see him as being a one year wonder though.  While he wasn't going to duplicate last season (especially the ERA), he's always been an elite talent that only needed much better command.  That happened last season, and happened this season for the most part up until recently.  His BB-rate was actually down from last season.

Another reason why I don't think last season was a fluke is because his underlying stats suggest there's actually been some improvements this year.  Like I said already, his BB-rate is lower, his swinging strike-rate is up, and obviously his K-rate is up.  Some of the other fancy statcast stats were pretty solid as well.

drop him or sell low on him if you honestly think he is a one year wonder or if he is actually a s---y pitcher. There is a separate thread for vents and rants.

He's off track and/or in his own head, and has been since the toe injury. Ride him on your bench for a start or 2 until he picks it back up. 

He has the same stuff he did last year, he just needs to be reminded how to use it.

I will be reaching on him next year. Hope other people think this too.

Raise your hand if you're starting him next time out against Minnesota.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I have no idea right now.  I guess it depends on what my team does between tomorrow and his next start.

I think you would be insane to start him at Minnesota.  Wait it out one start and see if he figures something out.

I am starting @ MIN.  Yankees have his number the past two seasons.  Other than that he has been dominant against the rest of the league.  

It is not like there are a lot of options these days.

Today notwithstanding, Snell is someone you should start all the time.

He's always had bags under his eyes. He pitched his baggy eyes to a Cy Young last year. He's not quite yet on Rich Hill's level here, though.

Yep. You don’t sit Snell. Simple as that.

He reminds me of Thor, great stuff, more of a thrower than a pitcher

He’s better than Thor. Still half of a season left. Lot of time to lower that ERA.

i don’t own the guy but he’s filthy. He will figure it out.
