Crunching a few numbers

The Yankees are hitting .258 on this road trip, which is not a huge drop off from their season average of .280.

But they are only 10 of 61 (.164) with runners in scoring position, which has led to the 21 runs in seven games.

Meanwhile, I found this interesting. Scott Proctor struck out 89 hitters and walked 33 in 102.1 innings last season. He has fanned only 27 in 41.1 innings this season while walking 22.

It’s worse for Kyle Farnsworth. He had an impressive 75 strikeouts and only 28 walks in 66 innings last season. This year he has only 20 strikeouts in 30.2 innings while walking 16.

I have not charted every pitch this season. But neither guy has the consistent velocity they had last season. Farnsworth also has lost his slider and Proctor his curveball. Both had he ability to fan a guy with runners on last season. That is only there sporadically this season.

They are a combined 1-6 with a 4.13 ERA.
