Hyde on David Hess' improvement

throw 9 pitchers every game. Groom them for 1 inning every other day.  When they arent pitching putting at SS. :)

From the dawn of time until today there has been a steady shift in pitcher workloads because, as far as we can tell, the shorter the outing the better the pitcher.  If you had 50-man rosters nobody would throw to more than three batters.  With 26-man rosters you could probably still work out a way to have nobody ever go through the lineup more than once.

I just made a list of players with 100-300 innings and a 5.50+ ERA through age 25, just like Hess.  179 names popped up, and at least 3-4 of them had MLB careers like Cal McLish and Ted Abernathy.  And Dana Eveland.  So I'm saying there's a chance.

To be fair, I was convinced the reports were spring fluff in 2014 when they were talking about Britton having added velocity on his sinker. Every once in a while something clicks. 

I also thought it was just spring rust when Ubaldo came in and got lit up in his first spring appearance.

Spring training reports are like someone hitting .400 the first week of the season.  Irrationally exuberant.  Except that on February 21st it's all made up instead of 95% made up.

I saw a tight breaking slider today. High four seam as well.

I hope to god if Hess has another no hitter in the 7th inning, Hyde doesn’t pull him.  If he injured his arm so be it but give the kid a chance.

As I pointed out before too Hess was better the second time through the order.  But yes almost universally pitchers are worse the more the hitters see them and the more tired they get.

Even Hess.  When facing a batter the first time his OPSvs is .849.  2nd time .850.  Third time .958. 

In 2019 that was .863, 1.038, and .917.

Usually guys with stats like that don’t come back the next year. Basically everyone who faced him the second time through the order hit like a first ballot Hall of Famer.

Usually.  But not always.

Right handlers hit Hess better than Trout has hit the league in his career. 

The year after George Sherrill left the O's (2010) he had a .573 OPS against lefties, a 1.223 against righties.  Pitched two more years in the majors.

In 2006 Eddie Guardado had a 1.029 against righties, and a .640 against lefties.  He pitched another three years.

Remember Mike Myers?  In 1996 righties OPS'd .911 off of him and he led the league in games pitched.  In '97 he again led the league in games pitched with righties OPSing .957 off of him.  He was still pitching in 2007.

This is the reason for the three-batter rule.  For 30+ years we've had the baseball equivalent of a kickoff-only kicker. Does one thing kind of well in one circumstance, but nothing else of note.

I remember Mike Myers.  Haven't seen him in awhile.

So, he’s improving the third time through. He’s a nugget.

Hopefully Hess will be a story to follow the rest of ST. There’s no reason to bury Hess just yet.

    • Bad move and I am not going to be excited about it! I gave a list in my last posts of guys they could've taken a shot on in the rule 5. Obviously some of them aren't ready but who cares. They would've saved around 1 million dollars and as long as his glove plays who cares if you are signing a guy that going to get on base as such a low percentage anyway. I honestly thought Elias would move away from the low OBP guys that have been a staple of Orioles baseball for a long time. I understand trading Iglesias for resources ....But I don't see how signing this guy does anything but cost extra money that the Orioles are showing signs of financial distress.
    • I said I was exaggerating! I'm not incorrect in saying that this move is "Dumpster Diving" or the Bottom of Bargain Bin signing! And as @Tony-OH said they could've just gave the at bats to Martin or someone else that we have playing for the minimum. Or draft a guy in the rule 5 that perhaps has a future in MLB baseball. Like Lenyn Sosa, SS, Alfredo Rodriguez, SS , Wenceel Perez, SS , Livan Soto, SS , Leonardo Rivas, SS , Omar Estevez, 2B/SS,  Wander Javier, SS , Arquimedes Gamboa SS, Jordy Barley SS, Kevin Smith SS/3B Players that I highlighted 1) Wander Javier 60 ARM/60 GLOVE 2) Livan Soto   55 ARM/ 60 GLOVE /50 HIT 3) Leonardo Rivas 60 ARM/60 GLOVE/55 HIT (***BB PROSPECTUS 2020) 4) Arquimedes Gamboa 60 ARM/60 GLOVE /60 RUN 5) Jordy Barley 60 ARM/ 55 GLOVE/60RUN 6) Kevin Smith  60 ARM/ 55 GLOVE https://www.mlb.com/news/rule-5-draft-eligible-prospects-2020   AND DONT BE A TROLL!!  
    • Me either, but apparently they believe Galvis is a significantly better player then he's been over the last few years offensively and the major drop off last year defensively was apparently an aberration, because players normally get better at 31.  I don't hate this move, I just don't see what it does all that much. I think they could have player Sanchez at SS and probably gotten the same defense and allowed Valaika or Urias to play 2B every day to see what they have. But hey, why not bring in a 31-year old with bad defensive numbers last year and well below average stick?
    • I just dont understand why anyone would be excited about this move.
    • It was his first year back calling games in 2020 and unless Garceau started cursing during broadcasts last year, he was always going to be in the fold. 
    • We won 14 games last year and 11 games this year doing exactly what I'm saying, and Lamar won an MVP for it last year.  Brees won 12 games this year without really throwing downfield, including beating the bucs twice in the regular season.  Manning won a super bowl in 2016 without being able to throw it deep.  So no, I'm not wrong.  If you don't think Lamar specifically can succeed with midrange passes then I'd like to know why.  But there are plenty of examples of successful QBs within the past 5 years that didn't rely on deep balls.
