Alfredo Aceves is firmly entrenched and CIA thinks he keeps the job after Andrew Bailey comes back. With Bailey having another setback and Aceves with a 63% LOB% we have few worries.
Rafael SorianoÂ is close to “hold” as his K/BB ratio is now exactly 2.5. However, his BPV is below 80, so he keeps a “lose” status for the time being. He is very likely to be a “hold” by next week.
What is going on withÂ Aroldis Chapman? He is still rock solid according to CIA, but his skills softened every week this month. He had a back issue, his velocity is down and he has off-field issues. So, there are some concerns here. But this is exactly why we are using an algorithm; we want to avoid relying on questionable information that may lead us astray.
Tyler Clippard is now a “hold.” He has converted all 12 of his opportunities since ascension to the role, and will hold off Drew Storen according to the team. This is a success for CIA, but we will not count it as a “hit.”
