Knuckleballers can last damn near forever if they really wanted to, Tim Wakefield pitched into his mid 40s and could probably still befuddle hitters today.
R.A. Dickey is 42 and is still going strong, he’s made three starts this season and has averaged more than six innings per start while posting a 3.86 ERA. His walk rate is always higher than one would like, but he’s usually successful at generating weak contact and groundballs.
That certainly helps his case as he’s backed by the 4th rated defense in baseball, a defense that has saved 6.6 runs this season.
New York Mets
Outside of Clayton Kershaw, Noah Syndergaard may be the best pitcher in baseball and he was last year too. I know, Max Scherzer won the Cy Young but Syndergaard led all pitchers in WAR with 6.5
This year, he’s off to another roaring start as he’s second in the league in pitcher WAR at 1.4, behind only Chris Sale. His K/9 rate is on par with last year, at just over 10 strikeouts per nine innings.
But he hasn’t given up a homerun this year and he also hasn’t given up a walk this year. I’ll say that again for effect, in 26 innings pitched Syndergaard has walked exactly zero batters.
His ERA stands at 1.73 and his FIP is even lower at 0.75; in addition to all of that, he’s also increased his average fastball velocity to a career high level of 98.6.
