The Next Iwakuma For Kansas City


When one looks at some of the pitchers with big comeback seasons this year, the ability to keep fly balls in the yard compared to the season before seems to be a common thread. Ervin Santana cut his third worst in the majors HR/FB% down from 18.9% in 2012 to 12.4% in 2013. Iwakuma gave up homers at 17.0% in 2012 (fifth worst), but improved that number down to 11.8% this season. Liriano's numbers dropped from 12.9% to 8.3%. U. Jimenez went from 11.8% to 9.0%. When we look for starting pitchers who may recover their form next season, maybe we should look at some of those who were victimized by the long fly last season.

Now that I am learning about the polls around this place, let's do another one.
