Discounted traded acquisitions continue to pay dividends

August 14, 2014

A week ago I asked if the acquisitions of Roberto Hernandez and Kevin Correia were a disaster waiting to happen, but so far, you could say they have been exactly what the Ned ordered.

On Friday August 8th, even though the Dodgers lost 9 – 3, Roberto Hernandez pitched six strong innings, giving up only two runs while walking zero, with five punchouts. That strikeout total was as many as he had accumulated in his previous three starts with the Phillies.

Kevin Correia followed that up Monday with what was supposed to be a spot start with another charming outing, earning a victory with six innings of one run ball. He only walked one, and also struck out five.

Today, Roberto Hernandez pitching another six innings (notice a trend), this time notching his first Dodger victory even though Brian Wilson tried to give his game away. Roberto struck out another five, but this time walked four, more in line with his history.

In the three games that these two have started here are the highlights and trends:

  • Dodgers are 2 – 1
  • Each pitcher has gone exactly six innings per start
  • Each pitcher has struck out exactly five per start
  • In Roberto’s two games the pitchers who followed him other than Kenley Jansen have given up twelve runs in five innings
