pitchers with good home/away splits?

Postby SpecialFNK » Sun Feb 28, 2010 2:13 pm

does anyone know any pitchers with good home or away splits such as being really good in one?
example..
San Diego, Chris Young in 09. 6 starts, home- 2.61 ERA/ 1.05 WHIP/ away- 7.82 ERA/ 1.84 WHIP
San Diego, Clayton Richard in 09. 6 starts, PETCO- 2.00 ERA/ 1.06 WHIP
2 pitchers worth drafting specifically only to be used starting at home there in SD that could be very useful.

does anyone know of any others with this situation?

Dustin Pedroia

Wandy Rodriguez is the first to come to mind.

Chris Young is def the perfect example of this home/away split... with that said, in a roto league, is it wise to ONLY start him at Petco and just bench him during EVERY road start? its obviously gonna suck when he puts up a nast line on the road, which hes capable of doing here n there but the overall body of work should definitely payoff huge with a great ERA n WHIP, along with solid K numbers. Curious if this strategy is smart or foolish bc of the amount of Ks you forego by doing this, thanks for the responses!

Rodriguez was one of the guys i was thinking of, but i think based on his 2009 overall numbers he will be drafted higher and used all the time. his numbers on the road are not that impressive, but i dont think enough people will look at that and only see the overall numbers.

i was thinking along the lines of pitchers who were not that well known, maybe borderline draftable but based on home/away splits could surprise.
last year i drafted Rodriguez and Young and only used them at home. they were great for me with their numbers at home and also kept my innings down so that i could add spot starters as the season went on based on matchups.

Perhaps Jonathan Sanchez. His era splits aren't that glaringly different, but he actually pitched quite well at home (notice the huge whip difference...also his FIP was 3.73 at home). Add to that his excellent K rate, and I think he would be a great guy to draft late and spot start at home with favorable matchups. And if it looks like his control has improved and he's pitching well in general, you have the option to plug him in on the road too.

In general I would monitor pitchers with reasonable upside pitching in pitcher's parks.

Jorge De La Rosa was much better on the road than at home, not surprisingly.

Mat Latos is worth watching since he's a SD pitcher.

gavin floyd has a big home/away split (gigantic in '09, much smaller in '08). Except that he pitches better at the Cell which has a hitter's park reputation.
