Danny Duffy's two-seamer was "worst contact management pitch" of 2016 (http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/2016-al-contact-management-by-pitch-typ...), yet he's nearly doubled his usage of it this year. #cantpredictball, or is movement looking better?
Eno Sarris

He uses it to get strike one. Throws to middle of zone with confidence. It's fine, it's important.

Do you think that by early to mid June Rosario comes up and Asdrubal replaces Reyes?
Eno Sarris
1:58
Rosario is only 21 but they put him in Triple-A so yeah that's possible. Injury to Walker might speed up timeline.

Threes is awesome. Wish I could have made it to Astoria for Single Cut.

Woo! Been awhile! Okay so, we're fully ensconced in the StatCast era and I'm loving it! My question is in regards to exit velocity. You already pointed out that Aaron Judgeuo9 oiO oH iofh OH OIH h HOIF fi8OH( 8 8h9 I"MF AWHEREWOFL

What are your initial thoughts on Jose Bautista? You mentioned above that contact-% stabilizes pretty quickly and his is way down. Should I drop him in a 10-teamer, or am I overreacting to a slow start?
Eno Sarris
2:00
I'd wait, but I might offer him around.

you put any stock in jimmy nelson increasing # of split-changeups he threw in his 1st start? he said he's confident in it and will throw it more often. still a streamer or would you hold on to him in 13team mixed?
Eno Sarris
2:02
yes, p interested. He added drop to the pitch last year and he's kept that going. Could be a big deal.

Re: "Our best pitchers miss the catcher's mitt by 9 inches on 3-0 counts." Isn't that a meaningless statement without context? By how much does an average pitcher miss the catcher's mitt? A poor pitcher? Even if someone with plus command still commands a pitch imperfectly, does that mean that command is definitely less valuable than velocity?
Eno Sarris
2:05
Average pitcher in 3-0 counts: 13 inches. four inches is meaningful, but I think it's overvalued.

Does anyone do spin rate analysis for hitters? Presumably different swing paths and kinds of contact result in different kinds of spin off the bat, and you frequently hear about backspin leading to carry.
Eno Sarris
2:06
That data is not available.

Leclerec hype trickling in. I need Eno to tell me jyst
Eno Sarris
2:07
He has the velo and Ks to do it. If Bush is hurt and Jeffress doesn't get next chance... it could happen. Wicked bad BB rates though.

Your Joe Ross response was kinda confusing.... "I mean, Jeremy Guthrie?" as in Guthrie's got the spot (gulp), or as in it's just Jeremy Guthrie keep your pants on and Ross will be there soon?
