Kenta Maeda 2017 Outlook

Recommended Posts

Very nice 2016 season and it seems like he's done a lot of work in the offseason to improve his stamina.  Right now he's the 21st pitcher off the board but if he pitches like he did last year but can pitch closer to 200 innings he could be a steal.

Little bit unlucky last night in terms of his outing...

* The one inning was a jam shot blooper by Myers that only fell because on 3-2 count 2B went to cover the bag, had the had SS covering, which sometimes they do its an easy catch double the guy off first DP out of inning. 

* Solarte then hit a 5-hopper up the middle, looks like maybe were shifted to pull?  Not sure, but slightly different shade, maybe normal double play depth and its a double play and out of it there. 

* Then a sac fly to the SS?  Great baserunning by Myers and nice catch by Seager.   But still, another well placed blooper that resulted in a run scoring. 

 

No balls were hit hard in that inning...

 

He did not have great command, his fastball was just off and a little different umpire zone on fastballs on corners would of helped, but when the C has to move his glove, a lot of times your not going to get that call, even if it is technically a strike.

You guys rolling him out @ Colorado?

I am in a weekly league and already have him in, so take it FWIW. But I looked before the week started. 

3 starts @Coors last season-

17IP 11H 4 ER 2 BB 19 Ks

2.12 ERA 0.76 WHIP 

 

Small sample size caveat, but was promising enough.

Anyone starting ?

He should be started in most standard H2H leagues. If you have more ratios in question than counting categories, sit him. It's just math. I'll be starting him.

Shockingly the man has a 1.90 ERA in 3 starts AT Coors

 

That said, I'm sitting him because I have a start limit in my league so quality > quantity

Their lineup is as good as any right now

Well, get them again next week in AZ

Yeah I'm not crazy about going up against the snakes in ARZ either. For the season I think he's still going to be a very good pitcher. May be able to buy low possibly. I still view him as a top 20 starter ROS

They say pitchers have the advantage when facing the same hitters within a short time.

 

Hes facing the D-Backs again but this time, in Zona. 

 

Hes been pretty bad so far this season...anyone gambling?

Line up is set it and forget it so hoping more so than gambling...I put a lot of stock into this guy this year, not feeling so hot about my investment at the moment.

I'm going to keep on my bench, but that's in a league with an IP limit so I can afford to be choosy. I think he'll right the ship soon.

I have him in a QS league.  Im not optimistic about my ROI with the settings I play in.

Sit if you're in roto.

Start in H2H if you need wins and Ks and can risk the ratios.

Start in points unless you're ahead enough where you're playing conservative.

Buy after this game in any format as his value will likely be quite low.
