Locked On Dodgers: Can Starters Relieve Between Starts? And Some Stat Nerd Talk

Click here to listen

A listener asked if it’s feasible for starting pitchers to use their “throw days” as “available out of the bullpen” days, and Jeff is here with AN answer, if not THE answer. He also talks about what stats are best for evaluating relief pitchers and gives a primer on Wins Above Replacement, including some of the differences between Baseball-Reference’s version and FanGraphs’ version. And once he’s done uploading this episode, Trevor Bauer and Justin Turner will probably both sign contracts.
