A Tale of Three Pitchers



Text  



Via Grant Brisbee of SB Nation, Matt Garza (3.91 ERA, 3.60 xFIP) has been shut down for the season, thanks to a right elbow injury.

Via Eric Simon of Amazin Avenue, Johan Santana (4.85 ERA, 4.03 xFIP) has been shut down for the season, thanks to a lower back injury.

Via Zonis of Athletics Nation, Bartolo Colon (3.43 ERA, 4.18 xFIP) has been shut down for the regular season and up to 10 postseason games that the A’s may play, thanks to a 50-game suspension after testing positive for testosterone, which is a banned substance.

As an astute commenter at Baseball Think Factory pointed out, “Bartolo Colon must contain at least 98% of all substances, so it’s no surprise that some of them are bad.”
