Lineups The Varsity
The Junior Varsity
Dillon Gee’s pitching pretty well this season, with a K/9 of 8.32 and a BB/9 of 2.32. He’s got a FIP of 3.60 and an xFIP of 3.18 but because he’s got a BABIP against of .319 and a HR/FB rate of 15.4% his ERA is quite a bit higher.
Phil Hughes is coming off the longest outing of his career. He’s been much better over his last six starts (3.60 ERA, 3.93 FIP, 4.01 xFIP than he was over his first five (7.48 ERA, 6.46 FIP, 4.64 xFIP). He’s picked up a bit of velocity as well, wish his average fastball sitting around 93 mph vs. 92 mph.
That being said, I still expect bad things when he pitches, but hopefully not today.
