Two-Start Pitchers: Week 23 and Streamer of the Week

Matt Bishop | September 9, 2019

STREAMER OF THE WEEK

Mitch Keller, SP PIT 

(37% CBS, 4% ESPN, 9% Yahoo)

9/10: @ San Francisco Giants (69-74) 3rd in NL West

9/15: @ Chicago Cubs (76-66) 2nd in NL Central

I know this is cheap and a bit lazy being that I used Mitch Keller last week, but he was hit on the hand by a line drive in his outing on 9/03 and was forced to leave the game after only 1,2 innings and striking out 3 batters. This forced him to miss most of his first start and all of his second, but he is slotted back into the rotation and on track for Tuesday 9/10 and Sunday 9/15, so why not?

Firmly solidified as the Pittsburgh Pirates top prospect and ranked as the 25th best prospect in baseball, Mitch Keller carries an electric skill set and an array of plus offerings. But since his callup on 5/27, the results have been lack-luster, pitching to a butt clenching 8.62 ERA 1.98 WHIP. While his 11.86 K/9 is encouraging, Keller has never really been known for his control, which is evident from his 3.45 BB/9. This is slightly higher than his 2.83 BB/9 minor league career mark, but not terrible for his first exposure to major league hitters. Continue reading

Into the 80s with Tom Greene- Atlanta Braves

Tom Greene | Aug 28th, 2019 

Our “Into the 80s” series rolls on. The fourth team to join the 80-win-club is the Atlanta Braves. When Bryce Harper signed with the Phillies, most of the national media picked Philly to win the NL East. What the media didn’t say is that the Braves won the NL East last season. Harper may have made you forget about Ronald Acuña, Jr. and his team. At 80-53, they are behind the Dodgers, Astros, and the Yankees, but are still a force to be reckoned with. Continue reading
