Weekend Rumblings – News for February 5, 2022


Weekend Rumblings – News for February 5, 2022

Alec Lewis writes about how Royals’ minor league development has changed.

The secret sauce in today’s time – apart from further advances such as information obtained from biomechanical analysis – is communication between staff and between staff and players. Up to that point, in the second half of 2019, the Royals had promoted Paul Gibson to director of pitch performance. They also hired Jason Simontacchi (work coordinator), numerous yard development staff, such as Dane Johnson (Triple-A coach), Derrick Lewis (Double-A coach), John Habyan (Low-A coach) and more years. Nowadays, those coaches, who work in collaboration with the many Royals departments (performance science, behavioral science, research and development, etc.), determine the best development route for pitchers.

How did it work? Well, independent analyst Patrick Brennan quantified how well small-league development systems exceeded baseline expectations in 2021, and the Royals were number 3 in the rankings behind the Tampa Bay rays and New York Yankees.

Dan Szymborski has early ZIPS projected scorewith the Royals on course for 74 wins.

ZiPS is positive about Kansas City’s offensive future thanks to the quartet of Bobby Witt Jr., Nick Pratto, MJ Melendez and Vinnie Pasquantino, but only Witt is likely to see a lot of playing time in 2022. Yet the division is weak, and it would be dangerous to outnumber the Royals with such interesting attacking talent in the high minors.ies.usechorus.com/compose/8dfbad30-49e9-4a74-809b-2bfbd66a27f3

Jeffrey Flanagan writes about the best Royals players not in the Hall of Fame.

Quisenberry’s 238 career savings are second on the Royals’ all-time list after Jeff Montgomery’s club record of 304. Of Quisenberry’s 238 savings, more than half (120) required six outings or more. And for his career, Quisenberry averaged 1.73 overs per store, second only to Hoyt Wilhelm’s 1.85.

Quisenberry also had remarkable accuracy. He issued only 92 unintentional steps and threw just four wild fields over his career, stretching over 1,043 1/3 innings.

Quisenberry’s last year on the COURT ballot was in 1996, when he received 18 votes, six shy of the total of 5 percent he needed to stay on the ballot.
