Rookie Pitchers Make Big Impact

Posted September 27, 2012

Earlier this week Baseball Nation’s Rob Neyer noted that the Oakland A’s are currently starting five rookie pitchers in their rotation. While Neyer opted not to make any analysis of the situation, we decided to take a closer look at those rookie pitchers over at Gunaxin Sports. In fact, we decided to look at the impact of all rookie pitchers on the playoff race, to see if we could learn anything that might benefit teams in the future or predict the outcome of the current playoff race.

The Orioles actually have the most innings pitched by Rookie Pitchers in the American League this season, at 248. Check out our full analysis of Rookie Pitchers in the American League over at Gunaxin Sports.
