After missing the first two months of the season, Mike Minor returned for June and he’s struggled in his first four starts, giving up seven home runs and allowed 16 runs in 20.2 innings. His splits aren’t of too much value given the sample size, but right-handed hitters are basically MVP-caliber hitters against him this season through a month of games. Lefties aren’t getting a bunch of hits against him, but when they do they’re hitting for power.
The splits for Logan Webb are pretty big so far this season. Left-handed hitters have a near 100 point advantage in on-base percentage and a 167 point advantage in slugging when compared to righties. Right-handed hitters don’t hit against Logan Webb and they don’t walk, either.
