The FIP is a Sabermetric tool, which is the new ERA. I’m a fan of it. It measures Home Runs allowed, walks, hit by pitch and strikeouts.
LeCure in 2014:
LeCure will be 1st time Arbitration eligible in 2014, he has made $1,411,500 in his MLB career. LeCure is another pitcher that could be either a set-up man or closer, pending Aroldis Chapman’s decision on starting or relieving. The other candidates for the closer’s job are J.J. Hoover, Sean Marshall and Jonathan Broxton.
