Joe Saunders vs. Rick Porcello

Loading Scores

This afternoon's game features two of the least exciting pitchers in Major League Baseball! Not excited?

Rick Porcello is one of the most interesting pitchers in the majors - each year he continues to improve on his peripherals, but his results are consistently pretty terrible. This year represents the biggest discrepancy, as Porcello has 3.38 xFIP and 3.57 SIERA represent career bests, but Porcello is hanging tough at 4.56. He's never been good at stranding runners, constantly runs a higher than average BABIP, and even though he's missing the most bats of his career, the ERA remains uninspiring. If you're ever looking for a reason to discount advanced saber stats on pitchers, Porcello is probably your best case example. There's exceptions to every rule, and Porcello continues to disappoint.

Oh look, it's a Matt Tuiasosopo!
