  1. Thanks for spending some time on a this and many other pitchers that don’t make mixed league draft rosters. Players like this are extremely important to a league like our NL only draft one and frankly, its far more interesting to find a season like Wellemeyer’s last year then Roy Oswalt throwing a 3.3 instead of a 2.8. But on the subject, 191 innings of 2.9 BB/9 ball seems like a genuine change in ability. The may regress but it certainly seems more likely then not that Wellemeyer is now a better pitcher then he ever was in the past. And he did give up the homers this spring but 4 BB in 27 innings continues the nice trend into this year. Injuries worry but there’s stuff to like in Wellemeyer in an NL only league.

  4. Do we know what Dave Duncan’s philosophy is? All I know is that whatever it was, it didn’t mesh well with Anthony Reyes…

  5. Basically, pitch to contact, use the two-seam fastball, and trust your catcher. Most of the improvement is credited to the extensive game-planning he does in preparation of every start.

    And yeah, Reyes openly clashed with Duncan’s two-seam/contact philosophy when he first arrived in the big leagues, and was never able to show much command of the two-seam fastball.
