Fortunately, there are some stats besides losses and ERA you can check before doing something rash. Pitchers with low strand rates or high batting averages on balls in play almost always see those figures settle around the major league norms by the end of the season.
Gavin Floyd of the White Sox is among the worst in the majors in BOTH categories with his 55% strand rate and .416 BABIP. He may be struggling now, but the increased strikeout rate he’s shown over the past couple seasons is continuing. A turnaround should be right around the corner.
