Torched by Twins again
June 28, 2022
McKenzie (4-6) took the loss in Monday's 11-1 rout at the hands of the Twins, coughing up seven runs on eight hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out seven.
ANALYSIS
For the second straight start Minnesota had McKenzie's number, as half of the hits off the right-hander Monday went for extra bases, including homers by Gary Sanchez and Nick Gordon. Through three outings against the Twins this season, McKenzie has an 8.31 ERA and 3.64 HR/9; against the rest of the league, he sports a 2.86 ERA and 1.29 HR/9.

I did!

I should have mentioned earlier Peter no longer has him in the ADL; I do.

The trade: Mullins for McKenzie and Sewald.

Peter gave me the choice of Sewald and Castillo. Since Sewald got the save the previous day, that's who I picked, and Castillo has gotten all the saves since.

If Sewald continues to be a dud, Triston's going to have to keep on keeping on to keep up with Mullins, who's been on fire.

Peter had the most valuable thing you can have, pitching to spare. I had speed to spare.

He pitched well, so I hope you forgot.  :)

However...

I understand a lot of fly balls means a relatively low BABIP, but geez.

Note to self: don't forget.

Rotoworld:

06.10: Triston McKenzie yielded two runs in six innings Friday in a no-decision versus the A's. (The runs came on homers form Seth Brown and Sean Murphy. McKenzie allowed just three other hits and struck out six. He'll take a 3.09 ERA into his next start in Coors Field. Since that should be his only outing, he's a
bench candidate next week.)

Me too, we have a 6 man minor league roster, he was on mine since early on.

I think he is morphing from being a thrower into a pitcher. The improvement in the walk rate leaves me very happy and I agree that the Guardians will be very careful with his workload. I think that 135-to-150 innings is in the cards for this year and that's what I'm planning around. My biggest concern is the build. I'd love to see him put on 20 pounds.

Peter has him in the ADL, David. Tim has him in the XFL.

Obviously great brains think alike.

Off to a good start this year. Looked dominant last night against Houston. 3 hits, 1 bb in 7 innings. He's getting fly balls, as usual. Maybe this year's ball is helping to keep the flies in the park. Pitched 120 innings last year, and I expect the Guardians to be guarded about his work this year.

I noted Rotoman's bid projection on auction day, so McKenzie is a Brainer.
