Didn't see this mentioned anywhere but Logan Kensing pitched an inning in the Gulf Coast League on Tuesday.

 

Looks like he should be ready in a couple weeks, adding yet another arm to an already stocked bullpen. In his 1 IP he gave up no hits, no walks.

 

I would be surprised if he gets activated onto the Major League Roster unless there is an injury. Look at it this way, who would he replace? The bullpen as it is is one of the strong suits for this team.

These things have a way of working themselves out. Somebody will get injured, traded or simply not perform.

 

Nice to have a couple of studs in the minors waiting to be called up in Martinez and Kensing though.

Oh, goody. I can't wait to see Kensing and his 1-6 record, 6.47 ERA and 1.60 career WHIP back in our bullpen. Oh, and he's a solid 1 for 7 in career save opps. Don't forget the 13 homers in 57 IP.

Sort of like the knocks on Mitre, going over his stats of a young and just developing career. Young pitchers learn what works and how and when to use it-it usually takes a few years. Logan has a sharp slider and is very young-he may not ever develop into anything great, but you still have to look at a young pitchers ability rather than stats. He definitely should not be rushed back to the majors.

Hey, AJ Burnett has great stuff and still hasn't learned to use it consistently. Now for 55 mill he is back on the DL with his .500 winning percentage.

His K/BB ratio was excellent last year(45 to 19), he had a WHIP of 1.25(not awful). Fewer hits than IP. More K's than IP. This kid will be an excellent addition to the bullpen.

Yes, that's why I don't want to see Kensing pitching for them.

You do realize that using ERA to gauge a relief pitcher is foolish right? And Kensings peripherals last year were really quite good?

 

Any of this sinking in?

I think ERA is a great judge of pitching talent. It doesn't matter how many runners you allow if you don't give up any runs......duh.

 

Yet his strikeout #'s, K/BB ratio, and WHIP were all excellent last year. As was his .222 BAA against righties and .218 BAA against lefties. Once again, gave up fewer hits than IP.

 

Once again, I reiterate, you are a buffoon.

On of the great things about baseball is the stats, all of them. Together they tell a story or give a picture of a players success and failures. Too look at the stats that only you want to look at do not complete the picture. Both of you make valid points, however the question becomes is he going to improve the current make-up of the bullpen. In my opinion he does not.

 

Second your arguement looses credibility when it resorts to name calling.

For some reason, might just be my zany way of looking at things...looking at a young reliever that held lefties and righties to averages under .225, K'd almost 14/9, had an excellent K/BB ratio of 45/19, a very good WHIP of 1.25 and allowed fewer hits than IP...to me, all that holds alot more weight than using ERA and ERA alone to justify his stance of a relief pitcher.

I will say this much about ERA, you will not last in the Majors long with an ERA over 6, for that matter even over 5. The life of a pitcher in the majors is more dependant to ERA than any other stat.

His ERA wasnt over 6, or even over 5 last year. It was in the mid 4s. But once again, his peripheral stats greatly overshadow ERA.

The point was not that his ERA was over 5 or 6. Your arguement was that ERA was not that important. The point is ERA is an important measure of the success of a pitcher, it is what MLB, ESPN, Fox all use to rate pitchers. I agree with you that he has other stats which look good, yet once again I ask are any of those stats better than what we have now for the role he would be placed in?
