Closer Identifier Algorithm Results for May 6

Closer Identifier Algorithm Results for May 6
Print Friendly

Here are this week’s results. Jose Veras and Bobby Parnell make big downturns to “auto lose” status. On a going forward basis I will list which guys have automatic “hold” and “lose” status.  We also get another “hit” with Joel Hanrahan, but since Andrew Bailey is hurt it may be a short-lived “hit.”

Pitcher CIA Result Comments
Jim Johnson Auto Hold 11-0 in Save conversion
Andrew Bailey Hold injured right bicep
Addison Reed Auto Hold BB rate is going up and K/BB below 2.5 but 10/11 SV/SVO
Chris Perez Hold Only 4 SVO, but it is the Indians
Jose Valverde Auto Hold 3/3 in SV/SVO
Jose Veras Auto Lose  50% SV conversion rate. Ugh.
Greg Holland Hold K rate is 15.55 and K/BB stabilized above 3.00. 
Ernesto Frieri Hold Ryan Madson will begin rehab this week.
Glen Perkins Auto Hold Very Underrated, and has a K rate north of 13. Deserves more respect.
Mariano Rivera Auto Hold Just like that he is 11/0 in converting 
Grant Balfour Hold a perfect 5/5
Tom Wilhelmsen Auto Hold Skills on the weak side with 2.2 K/BB but perfect conversion rate
Fernando Rodney Lose 6.75 BB rate and 1.57 K/BB rates still give us pause.
Joe Nathan Auto Hold One of the few things I give Washington credit for is his handling of Nathan
Casey Janssen Auto Hold No walks yet, and no BS. He is one of CIA’s best successes
National League    
JJ Putz Lose Is now 5/9 in SV/SVO but skills say he is better than that.
Matt Reynolds Hold No share of the job yet
David Hernandez Hold No share of the job yet
Craig Kimbrel Hold Has blown 2 saves so is not an automatic hold for the first time in a long time
Kyuji Fujikawa Hold He is almost certainly going to lose whatever share of the job he had.
Kevin Gregg Auto Hold 4/4 in SV/SVO and almost 10K/9; I would rather have him than Valverde.
Aroldis Chapman Auto Hold Ho hum
Rafael Betancourt Auto Hold He better turn those K and BB rates around fast.  
Brandon League Hold 3.65 K rate?? Please blow a few saves soon so you get the “lose” rating you deserve
Steve Cishek Hold Lack of options is a big help. 
Jim Henderson Auto Hold Has finally defeated the specter of John Axford.
Bobby Parnell Auto Lose  Blew another saves and is at 60%. Skills set is above CIA minimums though
Jonathan Papelbon Auto Hold 5.73 K Rate is below minimums, but he is converting saves so is safe for now
Jason Grilli Auto Hold an astounding 12-0 in conversions
Huston Street Auto Hold Only 5.54 K rate but perfect in SVO
Sergio Romo Auto Hold 12/13 SV/SVO
Edward Mujica Auto Hold 13.00 K/BB. He will be a top five guy ROS I think
Rafael Soriano Auto Hold Doing it with control K rate only 7.7
     
HITS MISSES  
Carlos Marmol Kelvin Herrera??  
John Axford    
Mitchell Boggs    
Shawn Camp    
Joaquin Benoit    
Phil Coke??    
Bruce Rondon??    
Joel Hanrahan
