Ubaldo Jimenez, ineffectively wild
Due to his drop in fastball velocity, ineffective breaking pitches, and worse-than-usual control, Ubaldo Jimenez has not been the pitcher the Orioles had hoped to sign. In need of an ace for his staff, Orioles GM Dan Duquette opted not to shell out hundreds of millions of dollars in pursuit of an established ace; instead, he signed a true boom or bust pitcher with...

Wade Miley's junior-year improvements
In his third full season in the show, the Arizona southpaw might have turned the corner. This doesn't compensate for the team's horrid 2014, but it could mean that he'll help them in the future. The Diamondbacks stink. If you think differently, you're in denial. FanGraphs projects them to win...

Aroldis Chapman just isn't fair
Aroldis Chapman has always been an elite reliever, but in 2014 he's taken it to another level. When it comes to evaluating established stars it is easy to look at the issue in a binary way. If a star is producing like a star, there is nothing to report. If they are failing to meet expectations, then it's time to dig deeper. However, just because an elite playe...

How to get a hit against Clayton Kershaw
Kershaw is the most dominant pitcher in baseball. For Major League batters that makes their job very difficult. This then is Beyond the Box Score's "How to hit against Clayton Kershaw for Dummies," also known as an advanced scouting report. The intro is a bit silly, but it's important to note that Kershaw is probably pretty low on the list of opposing pitchers that a batter might w...

Jake Odorizzi is not who he used to be
The Rays right-hander is a far different—and better—pitcher than the one who debuted for Tampa Bay last season. When players break into the big leagues, it is easy to forget that they have simply reached one more step along their development path. Sure, the minor leagues are where youngsters do the bulk of their tinkering and improving, while major league clubs ex...

Moonshots Episode 6: Citizens Bank Park
Who has hit the longest home run at Citizens Bank Park in the HitTracker era? Evan Gattis annihilated this baseball. In the Atlanta Braves 3-2 loss to the

Detailing Ryan Braun's hand injury
Milwaukee slugger Ryan Braun has been battling a nerve injury in his hand, sapping him of much of his prodigious power this season. In this article, we will detail the anatomy involved and their effects on his swing. Much of the Ryan Braun's past two seasons have been marred by a p...

Negative WAR players: Teams dragged down by below-replacement performances
Some teams have given away more than five wins so far this season with below-replacement players; some have really limited that damage. A below-replacement player should be worth nothing to a major league baseball team. Sure, he's not actually worthless to the organization; a club's minor league teams couldn't function without many organizational players. There's no direct v...

Giancarlo Stanton is Schoolin'
Nobody hits a baseball quite like Giancarlo. Yes, that is a Beyonce reference in a baseball post. There will be more to follow. Also, there will be baseball analysis. But first, here's some obvious baseball analysis: Giancarlo Stanton can hit a baseball a really long way. He's currently...

Jorge Soler: Next in the long line of Cubs prospects
Another week, another Cubs prospect brought up to the majors. This week's selection is Jorge Soler. How might he develop? There must be something about Mondays this summer because the Cubs keep announcing prospects who will be brought up to join the team. This Monday was the announcement of
