With a 97.5 mph fastball, you would think Blake Teinen would throw it more often. But he also throws a slider 35% of the time and the rest of his pitches are curveballs.

I'm going to guess that batters really don't like any of his pitches. A lot of pitchers have higher average exit velocities than 83.3. HardHit%, Barrel%, HR/FB -- those are great numbers. He was nasty.

A few years ago I asked Baseball Info Solutions what it would cost to add holds. If it was free, I thought it was worth adding. They said it was.

I seldom even look at holds, but when I see 32? I look twice. Blake Treinen had a fantastic season. Deserved to be on someone's MVP ballot.

Having said that, I have to admit I was alarmed when I read this from Ron Shandler in the Baseball Forecaster.

The structure of MLB rosters has already broken the traditional
14/9 batter/pitcher split in fantasy leagues. That structure hasn’t
reflected reality in awhile. AL/NL-only league free agent batter
pools are usually bereft of talent and pitcher pools are teeming
with middle relievers whose lack of saves suppress their value.

This is an old conversation, but it potentially could get worse.
Leagues should have serious rules discussions this off-season to
address roster structure and perhaps move to Saves-plus-Holds. 

Desperate times call for desperate measures, I know... For years Ron has also called for abolishing the wins cat. I think he just likes to upset me.
