FanGraphs Audio: Jeff Locke on Jeff Locke’s Success

Episode 341
Pittsburgh left-hander Jeff Locke has been worth about 1.3 wins by WAR calculated with runs allowed (as opposed to FIP) — a figure that places him between the very effective Jake Peavy and also very effective Max Scherzer by that measure. Curiously, he’s been more effective by throwing fewer strikes. Locke comments on that, and other matters, in this edition of FanGraphs Audio, live on tape from the visitor’s clubhouse at Miller Park in Milwaukee, WI.
