Camden Depot: Rick Peterson Breaks Fewer Pitchers?

Jon Shepherd takes a first look at Rick Peterson’s record in keeping pitchers off the disabled list.

Rick Peterson and his pitching lab will apparently be in full effect for the Orioles in 2012.  His analytical technique has been hailed as a major prevention tool against injuries.  I have disabled list numbers of starting pitchers from part of his tenure with the A’s and all of his tenure with the Mets, giving us a time line from 2001 to 2007.  I also have disabled numbers of Orioles’ starting pitchers in 2009 and 2010.

Did this guy forget that Peterson was the Brewers pitching coach in 2010?

Do the Orioles have any pitchers that are worth keeping healthy?

This crossed my mind.

Eh, it was a quick post.

I figured that his short time in Milwaukee might not have been enough time to establish his methods. In Oakland and New York I thought he had enough time to establish himself.

I should have explained it, but it was something I threw together this morning before heading out to work.

Feel free to actually comment on the posts if you are wondering things...I don't always seek out the links.
