Rick Peterson's Kazmir

New, 59 comments



Scott Kazmir has looked pretty sharp since returning from his DL stint/reunion with Rick Peterson. How sharp? Let's compare his #'s from 2006-2009 (both pre and post RIck Peterson).

 

Strike % GB/FB Pits/PA Pit/Inn K% BB% K/BB K/9 BB/9
2006 63.6% 1.07 4.0 16.8 26.7% 8.5% 3.1 10.1 3.2
2007 63.5% 1.04 4.1 17.5 26.9% 10.0% 2.7 10.4 3.9
2008 63.3% 0.63 4.3 18.0 25.9% 10.9% 2.4 9.8 4.1
pre RP 2009 60.2% 0.94 3.9 19.3 15.6% 12.9% 1.2 6.9 5.7
post RP 2009 65.3% 0.83 4.5 19.0 26.2% 4.8% 5.5 9.9 1.8

Yes, it is a small sample size of 2 games. The strike%, K% and BB stats are extremely encouraging. If he can maintain the trend fewer walks his pitches per batter and inning should improve. Even if they don't, I'll take 5 innings of this Kaz every 5 days. Thank you Mr. Peterson for whatever if is you did.
