6/23 KBO Takeoff: Foreigners on the Mound

A.Brooks (KIA) vs. LOT: It took me a little bit longer than I would've liked but my biases about Brooks being a subpar MLB pitcher are officially a thing of the past. This guy has done nothing but produce day in and day out across all types of matchups. I'm going to list off a list of facts to demonstrate just how impressive his revival in the KBO has been.

  • He's coming off of an 8 K performance against the freaking Dinos.

  • He's found a consistent way of keeping the ball on the ground, so much so that the highest number of fly ball outs he's recorded in any game is three.

  • He's recorded ZERO BBs in half his starts, with his worst performance being 3 BB.

  • He's gone over 100 pitches in 3 of his last 5 starts (one of the two in which he didn't, was because it got rained out after 5 innings).

I actually wish he was priced higher (8400) because I'm a bit concerned at possible chalky levels. This being a rather deep SP slate should help avoid that though.
