April Pitchers Report

March 30, 2013

Major League Baseball trades places with College Hoops as the sports flavor of the month in April. And as we usher in America's favorite pastime, let's open the season with one of our favorite handicapping angles - good month pitchers.

Listed below are hurlers (and their team start record) that have enjoyed a two-to-one or better success ratio in team starts the last three seasons during the month of April. On the flip side, we've also listed pitchers that struggle in April team starts, winning 33% percent or less of their efforts. To qualify pitchers must have made a minimum of 10 starts, with at least one start each April over the last three years.

I'll be back next month with May's Good Month Pitchers. Until then, let's play ball!

GOOD MONTH PITCHERS:

Burnett, A. J. (9-4) - The Pittsburgh right-hander this past season pitched like he did before the playing for the Yankees, much more relaxed and confident. Not every player is wired to play under the intense New York microscope and Burnett had more command with his fastball in the Steel City and his circle-change was brutal on left-handed hitters.

Correia, Kevin (10-5) - The former Pirate has moved to the American League and is now with Minnesota. Corrieia is a control pitcher and has to keep his below 90 MPH fastball and cutter down in the zone to be successful. He will have the advantage early of not being widely seen in the AL and could get off to a good start.

Halladay, Roy (12-4) - March was not kind the veteran hurler, suffering from a dead arm and a virus which cost him 10 pounds. But Halladay is a "gamer" and his repeatable delivery allows him to throw four different pitches for strikes. Expect the 35-year old to answer the bell and help Philadelphia win early.

Hamels, Cole (10-4) - Hamels is now the ace of the Phillies staff and his low-90's fastball lives at the bottom of the strike zone. Why the lefthander is so effective is because his changeup baffles hitters even today and it is a true swing and a miss pitch, which helps him pile up the victories.

Lohse, Kyle (11-3) -Free agent Lohse recently signed a three-year deal with Milwaukee. His last two years in St. Louis saw him become successful by getting ahead of hitters, avoiding walks and using an improved slider to fan more batters. The Brewers hope his April successes and last year's results continue.

Nolasco, Ricky (10-4) - The new ace of the Marlins is Nolasco, who works both sides of the plate with his fastball, fashions a curveball with a tight spin and downward movement, complimented by a split-change. The righty is a bulldog on the bump and seldom gives into hitters even when he lacks his best stuff.

Price, David (10-5) - One of the three best lefty's in baseball, Price is the real deal. His mid-90's fastball forces opposing teams to gear up for the heat and Price fools them frequently with a diving cutter or a power slider. If a hitter wants to sit on certain pitch, forget it, he'll throw the change which moves away from right-handed hitters.

Sabathia, CC (10-5) - Few pitchers in the big leagues are as reliable and consistent as Sabathia. His durability is virtually unmatched in today's game and he still can reach the mid-90's with complete command, moving the ball in-and-out or up and down. His slurvy breaking ball will often be his out pitch. The Yankees will need their ace early with all the injuries.

Shields, James (14-2) - We are about to find out just how good Shields actually is, playing with a poorer team in Kansas City, compared to Tampa Bay. Shields expertly locates his low 90's fastball and his change is so effective because the release point on this pitch is the same as his fastball, making it very deceiving. Can Shields lift his new teammates to his previous levels or does he sink to theirs?

Weaver, Jered (12-3) - While there are concerns about Weaver's drop in velocity in 2012, he still won 20 games with his ability to add or subtract speed off the fastball. Batters are continually off-balance with his assortment of high-spinning sliders, slow curves and changeups. Always wants the ball in big games.

Zito, Barry (8-4) - Zito was clutch in the postseason and was a factor why San Francisco won another World Series. The port-sider no longer throws very hard, but last season had better overall control, making his looping curveball and changeup more effective. Zito should still contribute as a fifth starter.

BAD MONTH PITCHERS:

Blackburn, Nick (4-9) - Not expected to pitch for Minnesota this month and quite possibly longer after underdog surgery on his right wrist in January.

Buehrle, Mark (4-11) - Part of a blockbuster trade with Miami, Buehrle returns to the American League, looking to resurrect his career at 34 in Toronto. The lefty has thrown 200 or more innings each season since 2001, but his command is less stable as he has gotten older.

Danks, John (5-10) - Still recovering from 2012 season-ending shoulder surgery last August and is not expected to be with White Sox until his previous velocity returns.

Dempster, Ryan (4-10) - After spending his entire career in the National League, Dempster went to the American League and did little to help Texas last season, casting doubts about his potential success in Boston. Last year the 35-year old infrequently top 90 MPH, as opponents started to sit on the slider and drove it. Though Dempster has experience in playing in a small park, can he be more than .500 pitcher for the Red Sox?

Jackson, Edwin (5-10) - Though he doesn't turn 30 until September, this will be Edwin Jackson's eighth different Major League team. His greatest attribute is durability, but has never found a home because of too many uneven starts over a season. Jackson did post career strikeout rate in 2012, however, playing for the Cubs will not improve his win percentage.

Latos, Mat (4-9) - A notoriously slow starter, the Cincinnati right-hander's personal record in April is 2-8 with a 5.79 ERA lifetime. Once April was out of the way in 2012, Latos was 13-2 with a 3.09 ERA in his final 28 starts. Will he be able to clear the next hurdle in his career and pitch well this month?

Richard, Clayton (5-11) - The Padres left-hander will put together a group of quality starts giving hope he's finally figured how to succeed and will inevitably fail again, frustrating himself and his team. What typically is Richard's downfall is his inability to pitch inside to right hand batters, who swing too comfortably in the box.

Santana, Ervin (5-11) - Santana is wholly confident he can be the hurler he was before last season. To do so, he will be wearing a Kansas City uniform and no longer pitching in key contests like he did on Anaheim. After a disastrous first four months, Santana was pretty solid last August and most of September after it was discovered his release point flattened out his fastball and stole velocity from his slider. Which pitcher will the Royals see in 2013?

Saunders, Joe (4-10) - The 31-year old Virginia native is trying to keep up with Edwin Jackson, pitching for his fourth different team in four years with the move to Seattle. Saunders is in the Mariners starting rotation and has good control, but his stuff would be best described as below average.

Volstad, Chris (4-9) - Now with Colorado, if he makes the 25-man roster, he will likely not be in the starting rotation and instead be used as a middle reliever.

MLB Future Picks

March 30, 2013


World Series Long Shot: Milwaukee Brewers 40:1

**This prediction and analysis was done before the Brewers signed pitcher Kyle Lohse. The odds have moved very little if at all since the signing so you should still be able to get Milwaukee at 40 to 1 or something very close.

While Cincinnati and St. Louis will be the favorites in the National League Central, Milwaukee presents much better value at 40:1, relative to 10:1 for the Reds and 16:1 for the Cardinals. Those three teams have been 1, 2, 3 in the NL Central the past two years but Milwaukee has had actually had the best cumulative record over the past two years combined. Milwaukee had a slow start last season with major bullpen issues but the offense was hot late in the season and the Brewers closed the year going 36-17 the final two months to make it into the Wild Card race before falling just short. While Milwaukee is rightfully a long shot, the Brewers have a very reasonable shot to make the playoffs and there would be great hedging opportunities holding a ticket at this price at that point.

The pitching staff was in flux most of last season and while Zack Greinke is gone, so are Randy Wolf and Shaun Marcum after both struggled last season. The injuries last season allowed Mike Fiers and Marco Estrada to earn places in the rotation and both had very successful runs last season. Mark Rogers and Wily Peralta also both made debuts last year and could provide a boost to the rotation as well as they are two of the top prospects in the Milwaukee organization. Yovani Gallardo continues to be one of the more consistent starters in baseball despite limited recognition and he had 25 quality starts in 33 outings last season. The return of Chris Narveson after missing almost all of last season also gives the Milwaukee rotation more depth. While this rotation may not compete with the likes of Washington or Philadelphia, in the NL Central Milwaukee's starting five looks pretty solid.

The potential suspension of Ryan Braun looms over this team but after facing great scrutiny last season Braun delivered a season that rivaled his 2011 MVP season. Aramis Ramirez often starts slow but he ended the year with very productive numbers and Carlos Gomez and Norichika Aoki both had excellent seasons last year and gives the Brewers one of the better hitting outfields in the league as well as great speed on the base paths. The wild card for the Brewers could be the middle infield as Jean Segura started to show promise late last season at shortstop and Rickie Weeks did emerge from an awful first half with a more respectable second half. If Weeks can return to his 2010 or 2011 numbers this can again be one of the better offenses in the National League. Jonathan Lucroy was also having a great season last year before going down with an injury so the potential upside of this lineup is tremendous.

This is not a franchise with a great history of success but this team was in the NLCS two years ago and after missing the playoffs last year this should be a very hungry squad with a great mix of veterans and young emerging stars. It will be a tough division especially with Houston taken out of the division but Cincinnati is not likely to get the same results from its pitching staff this season and the Cardinals also have questions in the rotation. Milwaukee had the worst record among the NL Central contenders vs. Houston last season so the other teams could be hurt more by Houston's departure to the American League. Given this pricing, the Brewers look like a team that could have a lot of potential if the pitching staff pans out and the bullpen shows modest and expected improvement. Miller Park has held one of the top home field advantages in baseball in recent years and Milwaukee will have a good chance to find a way into the playoff picture and could certainly be a tough team to beat in a short playoff series.

Season Win Totals: OVER 89 Toronto Blue Jays

Teams making a big flurry of high-profile acquisitions have often fallen flat as the Marlins were prime examples last season. Toronto took advantage of the mess in Miami and acquired two excellent veteran pitchers and an All Star shortstop as the Blue Jays appear to be all-in this season. The Blue Jays finished just 73-69 last season but this was a team that scored 716 runs. Adding Jose Reyes to the top of the lineup could provide a boost to that production but the big difference this year will be in the pitching staff.

Last year's #1 starter Ricky Romero had a truly awful season but with all the moves this winter Romero will be slated to be the #5 starter this year. Romero should be due for a bounce back season and Brandon Morrow is the other holdover for the Blue Jays coming off a very solid year. At the top of the rotation three All Stars have been added with the 2012 NL Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey joined by Marlins defects Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle. Injuries are a concern for any pitching staff but this rotation has as much potential as any in the American League if the starting pitching staff can stay healthy. The improvement in the starting rotation with veterans that can produce consistent starts will also provide a big help to the bullpen. For once the AL East appears to be wide open. New York won the division last season but fizzled in the playoffs and the Yankees are limping through spring training with several key injuries. Baltimore had a historic season but all things point downward for the Orioles after a truly remarkable run of good fortune, finishing 24-games above .500 despite being only +7 in run differential. Tampa Bay will be in the mix as always and Boston certainly has no where to go but up after a disastrous season but every other team seems to have missing pieces and features key areas of transition. Toronto's administration seems to be sensing this opportunity and the team appears to be willing to spend money and perhaps make mid-season acquisitions to contend this year if necessary.

The Jays do enter with a new manager after John Farrell was poached by the Red Sox and John Gibbons will face high expectations in his first year as skipper but this is a team of veterans that should come together well. The Blue Jays are pegged at 10:1 to win the World Series with only four teams ahead of them yet 89 wins seems very attainable with the other four World Series favorites all priced in the 90s for a season win total. Toronto has not reached 89 wins since the second of two back-to-back World Series titles in 1992 and 1993 however so this number is expecting a serious breakthrough and there is serious risk of potential injuries with a veteran team. Things seem to be aligned for the Blue Jays with the big deals coming together however and this should be the first year in some time where fans north of the border have something to seriously cheer about.

Season Win Totals: UNDER 88 San Francisco Giants

At first glance this total might seem low for a team that has won two of the last three World Series titles but there are serious concerns for the Giants after everything fell together for this squad last season. Tim Lincecum can no longer be counted on as an ace starter after his struggles last season and it is not clear that he will be able to hold a spot in the rotation. After career years from Matt Cain and Madison Bumgarner last season and the first strong season from Barry Zito in years, a step-back year for the rotation may be in order. San Francisco had five starters eclipse 184 innings last season, something that just does not happen consistently in this day and age and while the rotation should still rank among the best starting units in the National League, the competition in the division should make wins tougher to come by.

Buster Posey is also coming off an unprecedented MVP season, coming back from serious injury. Advanced metrics suggest Posey greatly overachieved last season as he had a .368 BABIP and it is a stretch to suggest that he can get through 148 games behind the plate again next season, especially with the extra wear of the playoffs. The Giants retain Hunter Pence but no longer have Melky Cabrera who carried the team early in the season before his suspension. Marco Scutaro and Angel Pagan both provided second half sparks for the Giants but banking on similar results with less urgency and after big paydays is a risk. This will still be a very limited lineup that is reliant on its pitching staff and its low-scoring home ballpark.

The bullpen was outstanding last season but it is an aging group with Jeremy Affeldt, Santiago Castilla, and Sergio Romo all at least 30 and now highly paid with new deals in the off-season. The outfield is also a big question mark with a potential platoon with Gregor Blanco and Andrew Torres in leftfield. Pablo Sandoval and Brandon Belt have also been streaky inconsistent players that may not be able to sustain success for an entire season. The Giants really don't have any impact prospects lurking other than perhaps outfielder Gary Brown and given the age of this team the potential for season-changing injuries is high, especially given how well everything played out for San Francisco last season.

San Francisco only won 94 games last season and only won 92 in 2010 when they also won the series so even a small decline in performance could push this team below this figure. The Dodgers have obviously made very aggressive moves looking to take over this division and Arizona was a threatening team late in the season after a rough start to the year. Both of those teams are expected to improve in their win totals and with Los Angeles now featuring a very formidable offense the toll could come on the Giants pitching staff in many of those games. San Diego and Colorado could also be more competitive than many expect making this a very tough division and the Giants are a strong candidate for a small decline in performance, similar to what happened after the team won the 2010 World Series. It is just very difficult to have so many variables line up for a special season like the Giants had last year.

Monday Tips

March 31, 2013

The Rangers and Astros kicked off the 2013 season on Sunday night in Houston, but the big board of Major League Baseball takes place on Monday. We'll hit on the 12 games on the card, including the solid interleague matchup in Cincinnati between the Angels and Reds. The day begins in the Nation's Capital as the Nationals try to prove that last season's division title was not a fluke.

Marlins at Nationals - 1:05 PM EST

-- These two teams split 16 meetings last season, while Miami compiled a 4-3 record at Nationals Park.
-- Ricky Nolasco went 2-2 in four starts against Washington in 2012, but tossed back-to-back complete shutouts in the final two outings versus the Nationals.
-- The Nationals won three of Stephen Strasburg's five starts against Miami last season, while Washington lost three of the righty's final seven outings at home.
-- Washington is listed as $2.55 favorites, while the total is set at 7, shaded to the 'under' at $1.15.

Red Sox at Yankees - 1:05 PM EST

-- The Yankees took 12 of 16 matchups from the Red Sox last season, while posting a 6-3 mark in the Bronx.
-- CC Sabathia split a pair of starts against Boston in 2012, as the Yankees struggled with the southpaw on the mound in daytime outings with a 3-6 record.
-- The Red Sox lost each of Jon Lester's final four starts last season, while going 10-1-1 to the 'under' in the last 12 trips to the mound.
-- New York is listed as $1.20 favorites, in spite of Curtis Granderson, Mark Teixiera, and Alex Rodriguez out of the lineup. The total is set at 8, as the Red Sox will be without David Ortiz.

Giants at Dodgers - 4:05 PM EST

-- San Francisco grabbed 10 of 18 meetings from Los Angeles in 2012, while winning five of nine matchups at Chavez Ravine.
-- The Dodgers hit the 'under' in all five of Clayton Kershaw's starts against the Giants last season, as Los Angeles lost two of his three home outings versus San Francisco as a favorite of at least $1.50.
-- Matt Cain finished last season a perfect 8-0 during daytime starts, while the Giants won 11 of his 14 matinee outings.
-- Los Angeles is listed as $1.55 'chalk,' while the total is set at 6 (shaded to the 'over' at $1.20).

Angels at Reds - 4:05 PM EST

-- In the first interleague matchup of the season, Cincinnati comes off a mediocre 7-8 mark in 2012 against American League competition. The Angels won 12 of 18 meetings in interleague last season, including a 6-3 ledger on the highway.
-- Johnny Cueto won 19 games last season, but things finished on a sour note after leaving the opener of the NLDS against San Francisco after eight pitches due to injury. The Reds put together a sterling 15-2 record in his 17 daytime starts, while the 'under' hit 14 times.
-- Since 2010, the Angels are 6-3 in Jered Weaver's nine interleague outings, including a pair of wins as heavy favorites last season. Weaver lost his only start as a road underdog in 2012, a 13-6 defeat at Texas in which he allowed eight earned runs in 3.1 innings of work.
-- The Reds are listed as a $1.10 home favorite, while the total is set at 7 ½.

Phillies at Braves - 7:10 PM EST

-- Atlanta owned Philadelphia last season by winning 12 of 18 meetings, but the Braves went just 5-4 against the Phillies at Turner Field.
-- Tim Hudson put together a 16-win campaign in 2012, while the Braves won four of his five starts against Philadelphia. His final five starts at Turner Field cashed the 'under.'
-- One of Philadelphia's three aces takes the mound in the opener as Cole Hamels looks to capitalize off a 17-6 season. The Phillies won nine of his final 10 starts last season, while the lone loss came at Atlanta as the Braves rallied for five runs in the ninth off the Philadelphia bullpen.
-- The Braves are listed as $1.20 favorites, while the total sits at 7.

Cardinals at Diamondbacks - 10:10 PM EST

-- St. Louis took five of six matchups from Arizona last season, including a three-game sweep of the D-Backs at Chase Field.
-- Adam Wainwright makes his first start since signing his $97.5 million extension, as the Cardinals' righty finished 2012 at 14-13 following Tommy John surgery the season before. Wainwright's road record suffered last season at 4-7, while posting an ERA of 4.68 on the highway.
-- Ian Kennedy's numbers took a dip following a career year in 2011, as the righty posted a 15-12 record. Kennedy was productive at Chase Field with an 8-4 home record, but allowed six earned runs in a 6-1 defeat to the Cardinals last May.
-- The D-Backs are listed as short home favorites at $1.10, as the total is set at 8 ½.

Armadillo: Monday's six-pack

Notes from Baseball America's Prospect Handbook, with top 30 prospects listed for every franchise.........

-- Astros' farm system had become so bare, they've acquired 10 prospects via trade since Jeff Luhnow took over as GM. Total rebuild job. Miami has acquired eight prospects in its various fire sales.

-- Giants have the most prospects drafted from colleges; 20 of their top 30 prospects were drafted by SF from 4-year colleges.

-- Tampa Bay has only three prospects they drafted from colleges, and 13 prospects they drafted from high schools. Rays like their pitchers to have 500 IP in the minors before coming to the majors.

-- Bronx Bombers have the most HS kids in their top 30 prospects, with 17 of 30, which may explain why their AA/AAA teams are thin on talent. It obviously takes lot longer to develop the younger prospect.

-- Texas/Detroit (13 each), Royals/Mets (11 each) have most international players in their top 30 prospects. San Diego doesn't have any.

-- Angels have six prospects from junior colleges; none of their top 30 guys were acquired by trade, the only team that can say that.

Armadillo: Monday's List of 13: What we like about baseball starting......

13 reasons we’re glad baseball season is here………
13) Looking through boxscores is great fun for me, just like it is in basketball; lot of information to be gained by looking at columns of numbers. Its dorky but fun.

12) Love watching Giancarlo Stanton and Yoenis Cespedes hit.

11) At some point in the Dodgers’ opener, a runner will get to third base, and Vin Scully will immediately tell us how many wild pitches the pitcher had LY. Scully was doing this when freakin’ Harry Truman was President, and he’s still very, very good at it.

10) Sausage races in Milwaukee always make me laugh; who was the first person to suggest they would be a good idea, because they are.

9) Arguing with my father about the value of bunting vs playing for the big inning is an annual ritual, My dad is 87 and looks at me like I’m the dumbest person on earth. Imagine that?

8) Watching Joe Maddon manage a game, trying things other managers wouldn’t dare try. Its one of the advantages of managing in a small market; if some stuff doesn’t work, its no big deal, because most of what he tries work. In a big market, people stress out over everything, so its tough to try new things that might not work.

7) Like the black jerseys and black hats Diamondbacks wear for Saturday home games.

6) I love that Cecil Fielder is one of baseball’s most durable players; guy looks out of shape, but what he is not is overtrained, so he doesn’t pull an oblique every time he brushes his teeth. Very productive, dependable player.

5) I enjoy charting umpires when they work home plate, and see what patterns develop, because they inevitably do. Its an interesting study.

4) Enjoy listening to Dan Orsillo/Jerry Remy doing Red Sox games on NESN; when Orsillo gets laughing, he has a hard time stopping and it sounds like 10-year olds working a game. Good stuff.

3) Watching Jose Reyes/Carl Crawford run out triples is lot of fun; a healthy Reyes will hit a ton of triples on artificial turf in Sky Dome.

2) 7th inning stretch at Wrigley Field is still very cool, when a guest singer does Take Me Out to the Ballgame. Must be quite a waiting list to do that.

1) For me, the best part of baseball season is watching all the A’s games; last September/October’s divisional race was the most fun I’ve had watching sports, other than the year the Rams won the Super Bowl.
