Gray's Slider% the last 5 years
2014 - 10.9
2015 - 16.7
2016 - 11.2
2017 - 14.2 (A's)
2017 - 18.2 (Yankees)
2018 - 15.9

His Slider Runs Above Average/100
2014 - 2.32
2015 - 1.85
2016 - -1.09
2017 - 1.02 (A's)
2017 - 2.29 (Yankees)
2018 - -.2

Looks like it's been a real up and down pitch for him. His percentage thrown with the A's were all over the place and they definitely went up when he went to the Yankees. It also looks like it was rather effective in 2017 but was really bad last year.

He's been pretty erratic his whole career. I hope for the Brewers' sake he skews bad again.

I never really dug into the numbers like you did. It doesn't seem overly bad last year. I'm honestly a lot more surprised by a team being like "well you have to throw your slider more". Recommending is so much different than telling or forcing a player to do something.

I find this more interesting than usual because he's a big name prospect, and because of how strongly his teammate(Verlander) calls out cheaters.

Makes sense for him to try using something since he's currently rehabbing from TJ and the suspension will actually cost him zero games. As for Verlander, something about rocks and glass houses.

Although doesn't this mean with the suspension, he doesn't get paid those 80 days?

No he won't paid for those "games" but getting healthy quicker and perhaps even better will make up for it.

I suppose that is a risk one can take. On the other hand, for a minor leaguer without any major league experience, that doesn't leave him with a whole lot of income. Take a steriod to hopefully heal faster knowing that if suspended won't be affected game wise. Personally I wouldn't take that risk but then again I'm not a few years away from being potentially offered millions of dollars in my career.

Hinch seems like a jerk as well.

"We have technology to help you get better and that these pitches are strikes," Hinch said he told Hernandez. "He had kind of an arrogant attitude about it and didn't want to hear it."

Seems like an incredibly stupid thing to say to an umpire. Maybe Hinch should let MLB handle umpire training or complain the them.

That being said, Angel Hernandez is a disgrace.

If what Hinch said Angel said to him is true, he admitted to making incorrect calls on purpose. He deserves whatever crap players and managers give him. Not just the worst umpire in baseball but probably one of the worst people in baseball as well. The game will be forever better once he's gone.

Where did he say that? My eyes are getting bad. I don't see that in the article.

All I see is that Hinch said Hernandez said he made about four bad calls a game. Nothing specific to that game, just a generalized statement from beforehand.

I don't get the vibe that Angel is admitting to missing calls on purpose. Just that he makes about 4 mistakes per game, my guess is he's basing that off his review after the game. Reality is probably closer to 4 mistakes per inning. I personally can't stand Hernandez though. Worst umpire in the game by a wide margin, plays the race card and sues MLB because he doesn't get picked to ump playoff games, subsequently makes a number of critical mistakes in the playoffs...and despite all this is by far the most arrogant umpire in the game, throwing out managers and players on a whim. He's definitely the type that would make a bad call on purpose to bait a manager that he wants to throw out. It's like he really wants to be a hard-nozed old-school type of ump...but really he's just trash and the game would be so much better off without him.

Awesome move by the Jays. I think a lot of teams are going to quickly follow suit.

I took his comment to mean that he chooses to make 4 bad calls depending on how he feels about the player/manager. Either way he's a trash person.

Of course Domingo and Krush both would go deep on the defacto opening day.

Looks like Santana played LF today, was that just because of the Ichiro cameo or are they going to play him in LF?
