There is not a track record on him period, he has under a full season of data to go on as a starter. His great 2nd half was built around LOB% more than anything and they shut him down in September when he was tired.
guys that strike out s s***ton of hitters tend to have good LOB%
but just like BABIP, we really dont know enough about the stat to say that he was lucky or that he will regress heavily.
and why are you so sure he will wear down at the end of season any more than any other pitcher, when in his one season as a starter he showed us the exact opposite?
i dont know exactly why you dont like Samarj, but you have made it abundantly clear that thats the case. we get it.
