His career whiff% on 4SFBs is egregious and so are his numbers against off-speed pitches (not-breaking, but specifically Changes). Neither of these things have changed in the early season. His overall whiff% is really high makes me think he's going to strike out 30%+ anyway, but he's a curiously good breaking ball hitter early on. Teams will figure that out. If he can't touch 23% of 4SFBs I think he'll fall apart at the seams. His career nubmers on 4SFBs aren't even bad in terms of BA/SLG, but his K total is and I think the Whiff/Ks will win out in the long run. Still only 180-200 PAs career so those are the numbers that matter to me. 

 

And again, small samples, but his problems in this regard pre-2019 are still absolutely prevalent. I consider problems for Whiff% (4SFB) at like 10%. 15% starts scaring me bad. He sat at like 23-24% prior to this year at 22% this year. EGREGIOUS. And on his career he has a sub-.100 BA on changes with 1 BB 1 1B 1 2B in I think 23? ABs. 

 

I don't know when it happens, but I think when scouting reports get good on this guy they will demolish him into a fine powder and send him to Japan al-a Christian Villanueva. I'm being a little extreme and hope I'm wrong but that's what I see. If I'm a scout working for a team and see walker right now I'm screaming to talk to the Catcher and make sure he knows how to call this guy. 

The 2nd paragraph is gold with the fastball whiff %. 20+% is unreal

I dunno how Stripling keeps doing it, but he's getting it done.

1st inning the cubs ran themself out of inn. Next inning Contreras gets thrown out at home on a ball to the pitcher.

I need Trevor Bauer to pitch a C.G shutout every time out with a .50 WHIP.  No sweat Bauer power can handle it.  I enjoy watching this guy pitch.
