Pitches-strikes: Doyle 52-32.
Groundouts-flyouts: Doyle 3-2.
Batters faced: Doyle 11.

Since the park was equipped with a Pitch-F/X system we got the following readings on Doyle’s pitches:

I count 37 fastballs, 7 curveballs, 5 changeups, and 3 sliders among the 52 pitches Doyle threw today. His fastball seems to be sitting at about 91-92 mph.

Pitch classifications provided by the Gameday Algorithm and may be inaccurate.Pitch Type LWTS correspond to how many runs were likely to score on a particular pitch based on average run expectancy when each pitch was thrown and what happened as a result. Negative scores indicate more effective pitches.Time to Plate is the time, in seconds, that it takes an average pitch of this type to reach the plate. This is strongly correlated with velocity, but also factors in movement.

Gordon Beckham missed ‘Super Two’ status by 23 service days

This year the ‘Super Two’ cutoff was 2 years and 146 days of service time (it was rather late). Gordon Beckham had 2 years and 123 days of service time.

Alejandro De Aza missed by 7 days! He had 2 years and 139 days of service time.

As MLBTR says:

Some players with more than two and less than three years of service time go to arbitration, while others don’t. Going to arbitration an extra time, the right earned by baseball’s super two players, is a clear advantage; super twos earn more than others in their service class.

BTW, Dayan Viciedo has accumulated 123 days of service time.

Rick Hahn to stay with the Sox for now
