Here are ten interesting notes that Remarkable served up for today around MLB, featuring Rhys Hoskins, Corey Kluber, and a few struggling offenses…


He’s worthy of four notes, so here they are:

  1. Hoskins has missed just 2 times in 28 swings (7.1%) on inside fastballs (League Avg: 15.2%).
  2. He has missed just 2 times in 29 swings (6.9%) on high fastballs (League Avg: 25.2%).
  3. He has missed just 3 times in 31 swings (9.7%) on fastballs away (League Avg: 21.3%).

Hoskins shown chasing (and missing) a pitch during spring training. He’s not missing much now.

4. One of the most impressive things about Hoskins‘ home run barrage is how many have come with two strikes.  Would you believe just one fewer than Stanton?



5. Surprising streak of the day: Corey Kluber has allowed at least one HR in each of his last 8 games dating back to July 15th (this is the longest active streak).

6. Luis Severino has thrown 76 fastballs at 100+ MPH this season (Rank: 1st of 171 qualified SPs in MLB).

7. Opponents are hitting .167 against Drew Pomeranz (39-for-233) as a starter with RISP since the start of 2016 (Rank: 1st of 107 qualified SPs in MLB; League Avg: .264)



8. The Blue Jays have scored first in just 33.3% of their home games (22/66) this season (Rank: 29th of 30 in MLB; League Avg: 43.6%).

9. Nationals hitters have an OPS of just .692 over the last 30 days (Rank: 29th of 30 in MLB; League Avg: .758).

10. Royals hitters have grounded into 7 double plays in 32 opportunities* (21.9%) over the past 7 days (Rank: 30th of 30 in MLB; League Avg: 8.9%).  * runner on first base with less than two outs
