Blake Snell San Diego Padres

With a 3.24 ERA and 1.05 whip in the second half, Blake ends up with Statcast stats that are almost identical to the year before.

The big difference in the Statcast scan is HR/FB, which is a "results stat" (I think of Statcast stats as things that are measured by cameras and radar). The much lower HR/FB explains the substantially better FIP.

His actual ERA, of course, was substantially worse.

That explains why he only earns $9, even in 5x5.

He'll get big bucks again from us this year. He's Blake Snell.

Is Gray glad he didn't get a qualifying offer?

I would think so. A four-year deal for $56 million isn't the same as $18.5 million for one year but, you know, it's more.

It would have been considerably less if he had been burdened with a qualifying offer.

Luis Severino New York Yankees

Rotowire last fall:

Two scoreless frames in return
September 22, 2021
Severino pitched two scoreless innings against the Rangers on Tuesday, allowing two hits and striking out two.
In his first major-league game action since 2019, Severino gave up a double and a single but no runs while covering the final two frames of a New York victory. The right-hander registered five swinging strikes among his 30 pitches and averaged 94 mph on his fastball, per Lindsey Adler of The Athletic. The velocity was a few ticks below his norm prior to undergoing Tommy John surgery, but that isn't necessarily a concern considering Severino's long layoff. He's expected to continue working out of the bullpen for the remainder of the campaign as he gets re-acquainted with pitching to big-league hitters.
