    Hawks Pitching Options

    Post by Rawken Hawks on Wed Sep 07, 2016 12:20 am

    On a team ranked 2nd overall in the league for team ERA, that there would be all star pitching candidates should come as no surprise...

    Ace Jacob deGrom has the top ERA in the league by more than half a run (1.90) and considering the quality of top pitchers, that is significant.
    Here are his conference totals:
    Batting Average 3rd
    On Base 4th (tie)
    Slugging 2nd
    On Base plus Slugging 1st
    And he is all over the other important pitching categories.  He is missing from Quality starts (he has 11, the bottom spot on the leader board is 12).  But he has been unlucky to have two starts cut short by injury, one by a rain delay and one he started on 3 days rest.  In those 4 starts he pitched 18 and two thirds innings with 3 runs against.
    Hawks newcomer Kyle Gibson is the conference leader in wins by two with 12 and is 2nd in winning percentage.  He is tied for the league lead in quality starts with 14 and his ERA of 3.03 is 5th in the conference.
    Here are some of his other totals in the conference:
    Slugging 3rd
    Hits per 9 innings 5th
    Home runs per 9 innings 2nd
    Quality Start percent 1st (tie)
    Innings 4th
    On Base plus Slugging 4th
    Runs Created ERA 3rd
    In the bullpen there are two relative newcomers who came over in a trade before the game on May 22nd.  That is 44 games into the season meaning they were in the conference for only 37 games.
    Closer Jeurys Familia saved 9 games in that time (his 10 in total puts him on the saves leader board and since coming to the Jenkins conference he is a perfect 9 for 9 in save chances).  His ERA is a minuscule 1.37 and he has 14 strike outs against 4 walks.
    As a set up man Francisco Rodriguez has an ERA of 1.67 and he has 17 strike outs while walking only 2 batters in 22 innings.  His WHIP is 0.73 and he has an OPS against of .458 which is the lowest on the team (Familia is next best at .473).

    Those are some quality arms to consider!
