Out for contact tracing
July 11, 2021
Nola was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Sunday as a result of contact tracing, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
ANALYSIS
Nola was scratched from his start Sunday but has not tested positive for COVID-19. Assuming he continues to test negative and is able to pass through the league's health and safety protocols, he could return shortly after the All-Star break.

I know that for a guy like Nola you don't want to start worrying after only 3 ST starts ... but ...

On Nola - a lot of folks are very high on him coming into 2021.  Not just the numbers rebounding after a 2019 season where everyone overpaid ... but because he's become incredibly effective at mixing pitches - last year 25% fastball, 21% slider, 27% changeup, 27% curveball ... with positive pitch values on everything but his slider.

I just posted my first comment for the Rotoman Special (that only subscribers see). It was nothing special.

Is the contact weaker on the ground? They measure that, too? Exit velo of groundballs v. exit velo of fly balls?

We've been trying to figure out all winter how to offer Peter's extended comments here to people who subscribe without taking away anything from those who just come by to read the comments and (often) contribute their own.    

It's tricky.

Here's what Peter wrote about Nola that prompted my question:

A curiosity: Nola allowed the second-most unearned runs last year (five, tied with Zach Davies, one behind Luis Castillo). Does this mean his ERA was unnaturally low? Not necessarily, nor does it mean it was unnaturally high. But it does mean the Phillies defense was less effective behind him last year. In any case, he bounced back from a season in which he struggled with his control. He actually threw fewer strikes last year than the year before, but he threw more changeups and more effective curves and ended up throwing more swinging strikes and more swings on balls outside of the zone, leading to his best strikeout rate ever. A strong groundball pitcher too, the strikeouts help him avoid batted ball bad luck as he thrives on weaker contact on the ground and his defense.

In the comment for subscribers, he misspells "curiosity."

He needs a proofreader.

Don't we all.
