Game 11: Orioles at Yankees

A three game losing streak, and suddenly the O’s not only find themselves out of sole possession first place but their pythag has dropped to an even .500.

Yankees:

Batting Fielding fWAR
Brett Gardner .171/.256/.257 0 -0.2
Derek Jeter .237/.318/.263 0 0
Mark Teixeira .222/.364/.556 0 0.4
Alex Rodriguez .355/.474/.806 0 0.8
Robinson Cano .317/.333/.585 0 0.4
Nick Swisher .229/.310/.257 0 -0.1
Jorge Posada .182/.229/.545 0 0
Curtis Granderson .156/.250/.375 0 0
Russell Martin .294/.333/.618 0 0.5

So that A-Rod guy might still have a decent year or two left in him.

Phil Hughes:

ERA FIP xFIP K/9 BB/9 GB% fWAR
16.50 11.26 7.73 1.5 6.0 28.6% -0.3

Yeah, a K/BB ratio of 0.25 probably isn’t going to cut it. Nor is giving up 3 home runs in 6 IP. Yikes.

Orioles:

Batting Fielding fWAR
Brian Roberts .214/.233/.500 0 0.1
Nick Markakis .222/.310/.333 0 0
Derrek Lee .194/.293/.306 0 -0.1
Vladimir Guerrero .268/.268/.366 0 -0.1
Luke Scott .188/.350/.250 0 -0.1
Adam Jones .189/.205/.351 0 -0.1
Mark Reynolds .273/.351/.515 0 0.3
Matt Wieters .241/.333/.414 0 0.2
Cesar Izturis .167/.375/.167 0 0

Mark Reynolds is only striking out ~30% of the time so far this year, but he’s not walking as much as usual either (8%) and has only one home run. Production’s production, but I don’t expect these things to keep up as is.

Jake Arrieta:

ERA FIP xFIP K/9 BB/9 GB% fWAR
8.68 5.45 4.44 7.7 3.1 37.5% 0.0

Arrieta has pitched better than his ERA would indicate so far, walking fewer batters than he did last year (a little) while missing many more bats.
