2016 Arms: Rotational Crunch

Following yesterday’s profile of the prospect bats that could make the second half of 2016 quite interesting, it is worth looking at the advanced arms that comprise the Brewers’ rotational crunch. Related Reads: 2016 Roster [so far] Week 0: Brewers Roster Rankings [December 12] Given… [More]

Collapsing Middle Rotation

While working on the 2015 runs prevented rankings for the National League, I noticed a strange set of trends: The NL featured the lowest number of “full-time” starters since 2009 (only 67 regular starters worked 100+ innings). Only 11 starters prevented between 4 and -4… [More]

Wily Peralta’s “Down Year”

Entering 2015, one of 18 “super-dependable” (100+ IP / 4+ consecutive seasons) starting pitchers exhibited a true, consistent career arc: Tim Hudson was in the process of redefining his career, or reclaiming it, after his 2008 and 2009 injury-shortened seasons. For the Braves, he prevented… [More]

30 Farmhands #10: Improvements

Along with a set of Brewers prospects that produced steady seasons behind the stars of the system, there is another group of players that presented notable improvements on the field in 2015. These players will be scattered across my offseason rankings; some, like Jake Gatewood… [More]

30 Farmhands #8: Prospect Narratives

While working on ranking Brewers prospects, a number of difficult and intriguing issues appear.
