More Pitchers Bad at Holding Runners


FanGraphs has another update on pitchers who can't hold runners, and includes a run down of some of the worst seasons in the Retro Sheet era. There's a list of pitchers who have allowed runners to exceed the break-even point five times or more in history, and some of them are some pretty big names in pitching. As he points out, though, not being able to hold runners if your'e a Hall of Famer is a lot less significant than not being able to hold runners if you're Chris Young.
