Tim Stauffer...legit?

Postby StealingHome » Mon May 09, 2011 12:06 pm

Honestly, I have never seen him pitch, so I do not know what kind of stuff he has. But his numbers are quite good. He pitches in a pitcher's park in PETCO, but only 3 of his 8 starts have been at home. His K rate is not super high, but it's OK. And he has been walking very few batters. Who is he comparable to? Thoughts?

Not outstanding stuff in terms of "stuff" but he has very nice control, keeps the ball down and gets plenty of groundballs...aka he knows how to pitch....you put that in Petco and you can be quite successful.

those padres starters are pretty much a good bet when pitching at home, especially against the weaker lineups in NL. away from petco, i would be super careful to start them.

Any pitcher with decent stuff on SD is worth a pickup.

You probably won't get alot of wins with that SD offense, but he really pitches well both home & away.

Fluke Watch: Tim Stauffer (Hardball Times): . From Josh Smolow’s article:
The strikeouts remain the same, but his walks have fallen in half and suddenly he’s a strong GB pitcher. Where did this come from, and is it for real? He’s kept it up for two half-seasons now, but can he be trusted? Short answer: Yes.

Stauffer’s 131 ERA+ since 2009 ties him with Jaime Garcia and Johan Santana for 18th among MLB pitchers who have worked at least 250 innings in that period.
8-o

Just traded for him in a 20 team dynasty giving up Jemile Weeks and Eric Thames. :-)
