PITCH ARSENAL

Coming out of the bullpen, Herget is a five-pitch pitcher that can spray the ball across the strike zone with vertical and horizontal movement. His Curveball (25.1%), 4-Seam Fastball (24.7%), Sinker (24.7%), and Slider (23.1%) are evenly used with a Changeup filtered in just 2.3% of the time. As his velocity sits between 73-92 MPH, his best pitch based on tracking data is his Curveball. Opposing batters hit for a sub-two average (.190), a .333 Slugging Percentage and an exceptionally high Whiff rate of 51.4%. Even though his velocity does not light up the radar gun, Herget has the ability to blow a fastball by any batter especially as he feeds them a steady diet of offspeed pitches. Amongst qualified pitchers, Herget’s horizontal movement of his 4-Seam Fastball (16.6 in) would rank third in Major League Baseball behind Joe Smith (16.7) and Tim Hill (18.9). Herget worked best against left-handed batters in 2021, working a .211 average with only four hits and eight strikeouts.

 

Basically effective softer tossing 6th or 7th inning guy with a starter's arsenal.  Deceptive fastball at 91-93.

First game of the year. Was excited to see Noah for the first time but i'll gladly take the scratch!

 

Hopefully I bring some good luck and we start a much needed win streak!

The Angels are going to be so sorry they came to Chicago. We have Leury Garcia and they got nothing.

All comes down to the managers then.

Uh-oh.  Maddon is not the Gandhi as Cubs fans believed, but he's at the very least competent and still relatively innovative. It's not like Ross came right in and led those veterans to the playoffs in their final opportunity.

I think Pollock needs at bats . i don't care about the right-right thing . he should be in the outfield.

Either Pollock or Engel should be starting in RF instead of Garcia.

Meanwhile, Trayce Thompson is starting tonight for a team at six games over .500. 

Matt Beaty on the other corner.  One of the many targets on the Dodgers in the Kimbrel deal.  (Of course, only hitting .091). 

Six at .210 or under.

general question:  when a team makes a last minute change in its starting pitcher, can the other team change to a totally different starting line-up?

5 minutes ago, Look at Ray Ray Run said:

Benetti said he expects to see a high scoring series as if he hasn't watched white sox baseball.

Might be high scoring on part of LAA.

Ward has been on an unreal tear as of late, almost Trout-like.

I have never seen trout strike out to a fastball down the middle looking in my life and I've watched a lot of trout. That change was in his head

Good throw would have had him at second.

Angels just mashing the supposedly dead baseball.

Yes, Tony is the nut low among ML mangers.

Sox dropped another spot yesterday, down to 23rd in attendance, behind tanking teams such as Washington, Cincinnati, Arizona, and close to 8,000 behind Baltimore.

Stand firm Sox fans, regime change begins at HOME.
