Who's up, Who's down: Blue Jays pitchers

New, 2 comments

A look at how the Blue Jays pitchers performed over the past two weeks.

Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

Over the past two weeks our pitchers have a 4.90 ERA, with the 4-8 record. There were some good starts ruined by bad offense but we've also had some lousy pitching.

Pitchers

R.A. Dickey

R.A. made 2 starts, both losses, but he really didn't pitch all that bad. 0-2, 3.14 ERA, 14.1 innings, 15 hits, 2 home runs, 4 walks and 11 strikeouts. Batters hit .268/.323/.429 against him. Both games were 1-run losses. If we were hitting like last month, we'd be very happy with those starts.

Mark Buehrle

Mark made 2 starts, one that was sort of bad (4 earned in 6.1 innings) and one that was sort of good (2 earned in 6 innings) but both losses. He was 0-2, with a 4.38 ERA, 12.1 innings pitched, 14 hits, 2 home runs, 3 walks and 7 strikeouts. Batters hit .280/.321/.460 against him. He was getting some luck with balls staying in the park for him, earlier in the season, had to think that wouldn't continue all season long.

J.A. Happ

He made two starts, one was good, one was awful. He was 1-1 with a 7.20 ERA, 10 innings, 14 hits, 1 home run, 4 walks an 11 strikeouts. Batters hit .333/.383/.500 against him. In the good game, he went 6 innings, allowing 7 hits, no walks and 1 earned. The bad start (of course, against the Yankees), he went just 4 innings, allowing 7 hits, 4 walks an 7 earned.

Drew Hutchison

Drew had  1 great start (7 shutout innings) and one bad start (4.1 innings, 4 earned). In all 1-1, 3.18 ERA, 12 hits, 4 walks an 6 strikeouts in 11.1 innings. Batters hit ..293/.347/.366 against him. A bit more consistency would be ok by me.

Dustin McGowan

Dustin made 4 appearances, out of the bullpen, and was amazing. 1 win and 2 holds with a 1.80 ERA. He faced 18 batters, allowed 2 hits  and 1 walk, with 5 strikeouts. Batters hit  .118/.167/.294 against him. There was the one home run against. He's been great since moving to the bullpen.

Casey Janssen

Casey only got into 2 games, since we were so awful these past two weeks. He picke up his 12th save. Only faced 8 hitters, giving up just 1 single, no walks with 3 strikeouts. I'm hoping he'll get more save chances over the next couple of weeks.

Steve Delabar

Down and up and down again, Steve pitched in 2 games, 1.2 innings, allowing 2 hits and 3 walks. Batters hit .286/.500/.286 against him. All-Star one year, can't find the strike zone the next.

Aaron Loup

Loup pitched in 5 games, 4.1 innings, giving up 4 hits, 2 walks with 4 strikeouts and 2 earned. He faced 20 batters, who hit .235/.350/.294 against him.

Brett Cecil

Brett pitched in  3 games, 2 total innings, before going on the DL. He gave up 6 hits, 1 walk with 1 strikeout over those 2 innings. Faced 12 batters, who hit .545/.583/.727 against him.

Sergio Santos

Came off the DL and pitched in 4 games, 3.1 innings, allowing just 2 hits, no walks with 1 k. He faced 12 batters, who hit .167/.167/.333 against him. A couple more weeks like this and Gibby will start trusting him again.

Marcus Stroman

He made 3 starts. 2 were good, 1 wasn't. The strike zone in his game against the Yankees was just awful. Over the 3 games, he was 1-2, with a 3.06 ERA. In 17.2 innings, he allowed 16 hits, 3 home runs, 4 walks with 13 strikeouts. Batters hit .239/.278/.433 against him. He's quite good, as a starter.

Todd Redmond

He pitched in just 2 games, 5.1 innings. I figured he would have had more work with all the mop up games we've had. He had 5.06 ERA. He faced 21 batters, who hit .158/.238/.316 with 1 home run, 2 walks and 3 strikeouts. Hard to figure out how he could have given up 3 earned with that sort of batting line against.

Chad Jenkins

I think there should be a Twitter account "is Chad Jenkins in the majors today".  Right now he is. Pitched in 5 games, 4.2 innings, allowed 8 its, 5 earned, 1 walk and no strikeouts. He faced 24 batters who hit .348/.375/.391 against him. If he wants to stay up with the big league team, he has to do better than that.

Liam Hendriks

Came up to make a spot start, was terrible, and was sent back down. Pitched 1.2 innings, allowed 6 hits, 6 earned, 1 home run, 1 walk with no strikeouts. The good news was that the Jays made a great come back. I'd be happy if we down see him again.

Rob Rasmussen also pitched in 1 game, going 3 innings, allowing 3 hits, 1 walk,  1 home run and 3 earned.
