    Re: Interesting Baseball News Items That Do Not Warrant Their Own Thread

    Washington called up and used reliever Tim Collins, who hadn't pitched in MLB since 2014. He was a reliever for Kansas City from 2011 to 2014 with an ERA in the 3s every year. He did not pitch in the majors or minors in 2015 or 2016, so I'm assuming he was injured. In 2017, he allowed 15 earned runs in 17 1/3 innings combining minor league teams.

    Collins had a rough go as he had TJS in 2015 then during rehab in 2016 he suffered elbow ligament damage again and needed a second TJS. Just terrible going through that surgery and rehab back to back losing about three years of your career.
    God, I love Yankee fans as they're never satisfied!

    Always thought Collins was a great story because he threw pretty hard thanks to an athletic windup and quick arm despite being short as hell. His curveball was fun to watch coming from a lefty, too.

    Bumgarner threw 30 pitches with one break during live BP. Much happier with action on breaking pitches. On track to throw 45 pitches for Sacramento on Saturday

    Maddon on Rays' reliever-as-starter experiment: “I don’t want to say, ‘Hey, you’re going to be there in the 2nd inning, don’t worry about it.’ Definitely don’t want to tell John Lackey that. That would be like my worst nightmare right there: ‘John, what do you think, brother?’”

    Speak for yourself. I think many of us wanted to know where Zach Duke would put his stuff.

    I would have had no idea Carter was still in organized baseball except for that post.
    Baseball is life;
    the rest is just details.

    Re: Interesting Baseball News Items That Do Not Warrant Their Own Thread

    Jakob Junis has a 3.52 ERA and the next best Royals starter has a 5.30. Kansas City is 7-3 when Junis starts and 9-30 when anybody else starts. Their winning percentage with Junis is over triple their winning percentage with anybody else. Junis has 5 wins, which is more than the rest of the Royals starters combined. The other four have 1 win each. I wonder when the last time a team had a majority of their wins from starters be from one pitcher at least 49 games into a season was. If the Royals get only one All-Star, they have many candidates. Mike Moustakas and Jorge Soler are their starting position players with an OPS over .800. Salvador Perez has a .784 OPS and his home runs and RBI per at-bat are very good. Kelvin Herrera has 10 saves, a 0.96 ERA, and 0 walks. There has only been one pitcher to have at least 30 saves, an ERA under 1.00, and under 1 walk per 9 innings. That was Dennis Eckersley in 1990, when he had 48 saves, a 0.61 ERA, and finished sixth in MVP voting.
