Antonio Senzatela caught many by surprise, he was an international free agent but never a top prospect during his journey to the majors. Yet, he did succeed in every stop along the way and also skipped AAA after a strong performance in AA.
This is his rookie season for the Rockies and 5 starts he’s pitched 32 innings and holds a 2.81 ERA in a stadium that is notoriously difficult for pitchers to be successful.
His stats don’t jump off the page, he only strikes out about 5 per nine innings and he’s only working with three pitches and a fastball that averages 94 MPH.
But he’s effective, he throws pitches in the zone 53% of the time, which is tops in the majors and results in a low walk rate. And he also induces a lot of groundballs when hitters are making contact.
San Diego Padres
Jered Weaver is hanging onto baseball for dear life, he’s only 34 but his best days at at least 5 years behind him. Yet the Padres lack pitching depth and Weaver can eat innings and act as a bridge for young guys joining the team in the next couple of years.
And he hasn’t been completely ineffective given that context, his ERA is 4.71 and his FIP is much worse at 7.29 but he is pitching at least five innings per outing.
His fastball is still averaging just about 84 MPH, but it’s effective at generating weak contact which explains his high strand rate of 88%.
