San Francisco Giants: Analyzing Jeff Samardzija’s bad luck | SI.com

Everything is crumbling around Samardzija in San Francisco, but he’s in the midst of his best season since that 2013 campaign. The 32-year-old righty has made nine starts this season, and while his ERA sits at 4.57, the rest of his numbers suggest that’s nothing more than the product of bad luck. He has a 2.89 FIP, 1.13 WHIP and 71 strikeouts against 10 walks in 61 innings. Samardzija has the third highest spread between his ERA and WHIP in the majors, trailing Trevor Bauer and Bartolo Colon. Those two, however, have ERAs well north of 6.00, placing their FIPs in the mid-4.00s. Samardzija is the only pitcher in the majors with a difference of at least 0.6 runs between his ERA and FIP who also has a FIP below 3.00. In other words, his ERA-to-FIP spread actually means something.
