Takahashi of Hanshin is superior to Orix Yamamoto in pitcher index
It’s less than three weeks before the camp in for professional baseball. The players are currently in the midst of voluntary training. I’m bullying my body to face my challenges and try to improve my level by the time I come to the camp.
Who are the young people who are likely to have a “big break” in the upcoming 2022 season? Let’s pick up “break candidates” that are likely to be from the results and data left last year. Data is analyzed by Sabermetrics indicators, etc. DELTA Co., Ltd. (https://1point02.jp/) Data was used.
There are pitchers in Hanshin who are expected to win titles and work at the ace level this season. That is the pitcher Haruto Takahashi, the left arm of the fifth year. He has already pitched in 44 games in one army and has marked 14 wins, but the highest is 5 wins in 2020. Due to a breakdown last season, the first starting lineup was against Yakult on September 9. From there, he threw in 7 games with 4 wins and 2 losses and an ERA of 1.65.
There is “K-BB%” as an index to measure the ability of a pitcher. Taking a lot of strikeouts and having few walks is one of the conditions for an excellent pitcher. Takahashi hit a figure of 27.6% last season with this “K-BB%”. Even Orix’s Yoshinobu Yamamoto, who is now the best pitcher in the ball world, has 22.6%, far exceeding this. “TRA”, which shows the goal rate independent of defense, also exceeds Yamamoto’s 1.73 at 1.18. If you can play an active part throughout the season, you have the potential to win the title.
Lotte pitcher Roki Sasaki and Yakult pitcher Yasunobu Okugawa are also likely to play more active roles this season. Roki Sasaki’s “K-BB%” was 20.2%, the pitcher who threw more than 20 innings, and was 14th, although the number of games and the number of wins did not increase because both were starting pitchers with a gap between pitches. Okugawa is also at a high level with 19.6%, 16th place. The starting pitchers are second only to Takahashi and Yamamoto, and both of them would like to expect ace-class work next season.
