By Kyle Matte

Published: Oct 7, 2016, 10:20 am EDT

Toronto Blue Jays @ Texas Rangers Friday October 7th, 2016 On the surface, one could argue that conditions favored Texas entering Game One on Thursday afternoon.

Solving Marcus Stroman’s Woes with Runners On99999

By Kyle Matte

Published: Sep 14, 2016, 10:48 am EDT

Marcus Stroman has pitched parts of three seasons in his major league career, and one of the more interesting peculiarities to develop is his worse-than-expected run prevention ability. The fielding-independent metrics love him: over those three seasons, his 3.36 FIP ranks 25th among 127 starting pitchers to throw at least 300 innings, while his xFIP […]

Marco Estrada’s Changeup and its Place Among Royalty99999

By Kyle Matte

Published: Aug 15, 2016, 7:12 am EDT

The changeup can be a devastating pitch with its doppelganger-like deception; and the Blue Jays’ Marco Estrada just so happens to feature one of the finest in all of baseball. Estrada’s style is the antithesis of baseball’s modern era, where a hurler’s panache is measured by how hard he can...

Josh Donaldson: The Draft Versus Development99999

By Kyle Matte

Published: Jun 20, 2016, 7:20 am EDT

Josh Donaldson was a first round draft pick, and given that he was named the American League’s Most Valuable Player just eight short months ago, this probably doesn’t come as much of a surprise. With the draft, and prospects, and international signings transitioning from niche interest to national news over the last decade, these young […]

How Aaron Sanchez Found Success vs Left Handed Hitters99999

By Kyle Matte

Published: Jun 6, 2016, 9:47 am EDT

Aaron Sanchez can manhandle a right-handed batter with the best of them. For his career, same sided hitters have slashed a less-than-robust .175/.243/.220 in 380 plate appearances. He allowed a home run to Adrian Beltre on May 15th, and that moment is only noteworthy because it represented the first dinger that he had surrendered to a right […]

By Kyle Matte

Published: Jun 1, 2016, 6:30 am EDT

Prior to being selected by the Blue Jays as the 22nd overall pick back in the 2012 draft, Marcus Stroman was drawing attention as an amateur prospect primarily for two reasons: a mid-90’s four-seam fastball and an upper 80’s slider, the combination of which guided him to an impressive 136 strikeouts over 98 innings in […]

By Kyle Matte

Published: May 14, 2016, 6:15 am EDT

The closer debate began the moment the Blue Jays traded for Drew Storen back in January, and the embers of the competition were stoked throughout the full duration of camp.
