Don’t worry too much about Lance Lynn’s return from Tommy John Surgery

An analysis of how pitchers do when returning from Tommy John Surgery It’s been a while since we’ve had the pleasure of watching Lance Lynn pitch. For a while he was looking like one of the most under-rated pitcher in baseball, accumulating nearly 13 fWAR from 2012 to 2015, 20th among pitchers in that time frame. 2015 was Lance’s most fastball-happy season yet (82%), and his mastery of the pitch earned him national recognition. That’s when news broke that took the wind out of the sails of many a Cardinals fan: Lance Lynn needed and received Tommy John Surgery following the 2015...

Analyzing Lance Lynn’s command and control

Does new pitching data tell us anything about Lance Lynn? Yesterday, Baseball Prospectus unveiled their first article in a series focusing on new pitching data. This particular column centered on pitching control and command, or more specifically, Called Strike Probability (CS Prob) and Called Strikes Above Average (CSAA). CS Prob is defined as the likelihood of a particular pitch being called a strike regardless of the outcome, while CSAA is how many called strikes a pitcher creates for his team, i.e., when a pitcher takes advantage of the part of the plate that isn’t always called for a...
