After a nice stretch over seven starts for Hunter Greene from early May through mid-June, he’s struggled the last three times out – giving up five homers and 13 runs in just 14.0 innings.
The splits are pretty extreme for Hunter Greene. Right-handed hitters are crushing the ball against him, hitting 13 home runs and posting a of .905. Lefties aren’t having nearly the same kind of success. They are hitting for a little bit of power against him, but they have a .200 average and just a .709 OPS against him.
It’s been a good first half for Taijuan Walker. He has been incredible at home (1.86 ERA) and good on the road (3.30 ERA). All three of the home runs he’s allowed this season have come on the road.
The splits from batters are a bit different. Both righties and lefties are hitting .235 against him, but lefties walk significantly more and hit for more power against him than right-handed hitters do.
