Injury Impact to the Pirates’ Payroll

It’s no secret—injuries have significantly derailed the Pirates’ season. Many weren’t overly hopeful about the team’s chances this year, but many predicted at least a strong chance to finish above .500, as the team was largely the same as last season and it’s a feat they achieved then. While the club knew about and could […]

Trevor Williams Placed on Injured List; Pirates Make Bullpen Changes

The Pittsburgh Pirates announced five transactions on Friday night, including right-handed pitcher Trevor Williams going on the 10-day injured list with a right side strain.

Trevor Williams Leaves Thursday’s Game Early with Right Side Discomfort

Trevor Williams has been the most consistent starting pitcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates during an injury-filled season. He threw at least six innings in each of his first eight starts this year, but that streak ended Thursday night against the San Diego Padres when he walked off the mound with the trainer in the fourth […]

Williams: Trevor Williams Shows There Are Cases Where Fastballs Aren’t Evil

Trevor Williams showed on Monday that you don’t necessarily need to throw breaking stuff 40% of the time to have success. And yes, it was only one start, and small sample size rules apply. But Williams showed a trend I’ve continued to pound: Throw your best pitches more often. It doesn’t matter if those pitches […]

Can Trevor Williams Avoid Regression With Soft Contact Skills?

PITTSBURGH — Trevor Williams has been something of an enigma in 2018. If you ask an average fan, Williams might be the Pirates best starting pitcher, with a 2.72 ERA entering Sunday. If you ask a much more sabremetrically inclined one, Williams’ 4.88 xFIP is a sign that he’s very unlikely to be able to […]

How Pirates’ Various Successes Can Feed Off One Another

PITTSBURGH — Baseball is a team sport, but not necessarily a synergistic one. A batting lineup can run hot or cold, but that has little impact on how well arms and gloves can limit the opposition. There can easily be a disconnect between scoring and defending, perhaps more so than any other team sport. Even […]

What Do Starting Pitchers Do on Their ‘Off’ Days, Anyway?

Ivan Nova was the Pittsburgh Pirates starting pitcher Tuesday night. Wednesday, he’ll mostly be “a cheerleader.” Such is the life of a starting pitcher. Day of the week? Doesn’t matter. The city they’re in? They might not even play there. It’s all about what day it is in the five-day cycle. There’s the day they […]

Morning Report: Trevor Williams Will See Regression, But He Can Limit...

Earlier this week I wrote about how the Pirates were looking like legit contenders. That was based on the fact that the team is currently winning, despite the lack of results from some of their expected top performers. The idea was that they would eventually get better performances from some of those top guys, offsetting […]

Streaky Pirates Searching For Stopper

WASHINGTON, D.C. — It appears that the 2018 version of the Pittsburgh Pirates are something of a streaky baseball team. The Pirates lost their third straight game to the Washington Nationals on Wednesday night, their second three-game or longer losing streak in the last 10 days. In between, the Pirates won five straight against the […]
