2012 Bulls Charts - 2 - Pitchers

Here are the charts with the basic metrics for the pitchers we saw with the Bulls this year. Several that we saw are not on the charts because they just didn't seem to fit. For example, Alex Cobb started 8 games, and did not do very well as a Bull (1-4) before going up to the Rays to stay. Alex Colome and Matt Buschmann came up from Montgomery for a couple of games near the end of the season (and looked very good). Jhonny Nunez appeared in 22 games before his release. On the other hand, Romulo Sanchez stuck with the Bulls for 34 games before his release. Also included is Bryan Augenstein even though he was on the DL for much of the year.

Note that most of the pitchers on the 40-man are now with the Rays: Dane De La Rosa, Brandon Gomes, Chris Archer, and Cesar Ramos. The two who are not had very different ends of the season. Josh Lueke's last six appearances were pretty awful (7 1/3 innings, 13 ER). Alexander Torres, who comes off as the Bulls' very worst pitcher in just about every category this year, pitched a decent few innings in his last game on September 1st.

Youngsters Adam Liberatore and Frank De Los Santos arrived near the end of the year, and looked pretty good.

Looking at FIP, things sort out a bit differently. I wish I were more confident in FIP as a measure of minor leaguers. For the stats folks out there, I used a constant of +3.2 in the computation.

Matt Torra, Lance Pendleton, Chris Archer, and Jim Paduch were the workhorses this year.

Pitching Efficiency is my name for a slightly quirky metric, pitches per out. Look at how hard Torres was working this year.
