Chris Davis’ Foul start… and Trevor Rosenthal; early DRC+ Outcome
FanGraphs No, it’s Chris Davis, who has achieved the remarkable accomplishment of (as of April 8th) not having one hit this particular season. His hit-less series is tied to the longest all-time, and he has one of the greatest WAR gaps between his best and worst seasons (over ten wins), separated by just five short years.
The Ringer | Michael Baumann: You could also incorporate Trevor Rosenthal compared to that slow-start list, as he has not retired a batter since August 1-2, 2017. And he’s allowed seven earned runs. Even though of a come back whilst Davis needed a free fall, it has a gloomy stretch of baseball for a once-dominant reliever.
Baseball Prospectus | Jonathan Judge: We are talking early season DRC+ results, and also Judge both fractures down how fast it’s stabilizing (for somebody like Christian Yelich, it’s presently a believable 156 after merely a week), and also at still another piece on the website actually breaks down the math and dtc code of the way DRC works. As I’m convinced DRC analysis will probably be normal that this particular season, it is highly recommended by me.
