Tim Collins: Still Pitching All the Time, Still Walking Everyone

Tim Collins in three bullet points:

  • He is not tall
  • He pitches often
  • He walks people

Yost has sent Collins out there 56 times this season, despite increasing evidence he just really isn't worth the trouble. Collins has a walk rate of 6.6 BB/9, which is one of the higher numbers you will ever see. However, Yost has held off on using Collins since the Boston series, so maybe he's cooling on him. Maybe.

 

He's managed to maintain a reasonable ERA thanks to a good number of strikeouts and a low home run total, along with the natural benefit relievers recieve regarding other people's runs.

Given the natural volitility of reliever careers and the fact that most of these guys burn out quickly, I'm not really enthusiastic about Collins's future. It would be cool if he was still striking out 10 batters per 9, but he's not.
