Updated May Stats – Wood rules the roost

May Record – 17/8

National League West Position – 2nd place, 1 1/2 games back of the Rockies who have gone 17/9 in May. 

The Good Stuff:

  • Alex Wood has been the best pitcher for the month and since he is now on the DL, that won’t change any.
  • The bullpen has been unbelievable. Josh Fields,  Ross Stripling, and Pedro Baez have been the best setup group in baseball. They have basically been unhittable in May with every OPS against below .600.
  • Chris Hatcher has had two bad games out of eight. The other six outing have been as dominant as the three mentioned above.
  • The Kenta/Ryu piggyback game last week was a success for both pitchers, the team, and the bullpen.

The Bad Stuff:

  • Clayton Kershaw has given up six home runs in only forty innings.  His SO9 ratio is below 9, and his OPS against is over .650. This might be normal for 95% of major league pitchers but for Kershaw this might be his worst month in years. We will have to look into this further when the month closes in a few days.
  • Rich Hill hasn’t pitched much, but when he has he hasn’t been impressive. With Wood going on the DL, Hill needs to steup up his game.
