Chris Sale Newsbeat

Zack Greinke highlights a crop of MLB aces who rely on baseball’s advanced stats | For The Win

Chris Sale is not like the others.

In addition to his pitching, Greinke is known for his exhaustive understanding of and interest in the sport, up to and including preparing pre-draft scouting reports on potential picks. And in a New York Times feature during his 2009 campaign, Greinke explained that he pitched to keep his Fielding Independent Pitching (FIP) as low as possible. By that number, which estimates a pitcher’s value based on his walk, strikeout and home-run rates, Greinke was indeed better in 2009 than he had been in 2015: A 2.33 FIP then vs. a 2.65 mark now.

Chris Sale is dominating the AL, but one Unit of measurement matters most

Now that’s a funky stat.

Sale joined Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax as the only pitcher since 1900 to produce three consecutive starts of 12 or more strikeouts while yielding no more than one run. He also is the first pitcher in the modern era to record at least 10 strikeouts in four consecutive starts while increasing his total each time, striking out 14 in his last start Monday against the Houston Astros.
