July 25,2019 was a life changing day, with a lot of help and a whole lot of hard work. Big thank you to @wilk_kevin @dugasmd1@tinsleyperformance @joebello13 and the whole staff with the Yankees for getting me back right! I can’t wait to get things rocking in 2021! 
It’s a long way to the top if you want to rock and roll 💪

Excellent narrative here. Going into the death spiral baseball is doing just fine. Or as we used to say on the playground, Let's play!

Chad Jennings at The Athletic today:

The early days of October have been a gantlet for this team, from a near-must-win Game 162, through a wild-card showdown with the Yankees, past an early series deficit against the Rays. The Red Sox have gotten through it using a starting lineup they never once deployed during the regular season. Their pitching staff has become such an undefined mishmash that starter Nick Pivetta has their most recent save (in the final game of the regular season) and their second-most postseason innings (despite not making a start in the playoffs). Their designated hitter has an ankle injury, their third baseman is dealing with a sore arm, and their second baseman is getting his first everyday at-bats in almost three months. Rule 5 pick Whitlock is, apparently, their new closer. Or at least their highest-leverage reliever.

Heck of a year

The next pitcher after Feyerson, sorting by ERA ascending and IP descending. In other words, after the first month of the season, he's pitched the second most innings among the many pitchers who have yet to yield an earned run.

He has a win, thus has earned more than Feyerson in 4x4 ($5). He's earned the same in 5x5 ($4).

WHIP 0.62

Rating 0.54

G/L/F 61/18/21 

There's a caveat: the values are derived from the formulas used in 2019, the last full season. He's not really on a pace to earn $30.

But close.

His out pitch is a change up. Not sure what Baseball Savant is watching.

A little sidebar in the Yankees' nightmare start.

Garrett Whitlock, RHP, Red Sox — Boston plucked Whitlock from the Yankees in the Rule 5 draft, and the early returns are excellent. Whitlock spent 2020 recovering from Tommy John surgery but has been gangbusters in the first four games of his career. Over nine innings, the righthander has allowed just three hits, walked nobody and struck out 11. According to Baseball Savant, Whitlock has worked almost exclusively with a sinker-slider combination, with the former pitch averaging 95 mph and the latter averaging 82 mph.
