Revisiting May Goals

  • Need more innings from Bailey, 6 or more is good. Bailey has hit that in the last two starts of April, so that can be good news…for now.
  1. 6 or more innings occurred in 5 May Starts
  2. 6 or less happened once on May 17th
  • Bailey gets hit off of a lot, in a baseball way. Bailey allows 7-8 hits per game, got to cut down on that factor. He has allowed 7 or more hits in each start to start the season.
  1. Less than 7 hits in 4 May starts
  2. More than 7 hits in 2 May starts
  • Bailey typically allows 3-4 runs per start. Bailey has allowed 4 or less runs in 3 of 5 starts. If Bailey allows less than 4 per start, he will gain his confidence once again.
  1. Less than 4 in 5 May starts
  2. More than 4 in 1 May Start (May 17th)
  • One thing that Bailey has done and it is good is not allowing walks, he has allowed no walks in 2 of 5 starts.
  1. Carried away for Homer Bailey, Failed.
  2. Walked one batter in 2 May starts
  3. Walked two batters in 3 May starts
  4. Walked more than two batters in one May start (May 17th)
  • Strikeouts, 8 per start is a goal, but 4-8 is good enough in a start. Bailey has struck out more than 4 batters in 4 starts.
  1. 4 or more strikeouts in 5 May Starts
  2. 6 strikeouts was the high in May, occurred in 2 starts
  3. Less than 4 strikeouts in one May start (May 17th)
  • Home runs, that April 14th game was an OUTLIER. That game is not typical of Homer Bailey, but he usually allows 1 home run. Obvious to go 0 home runs per start and has done it once. Bailey has given up a home run in 3 of 5 starts.
  1. No home runs in 3 starts
  2. Only allowed one home run in 3 starts
