  • Dylan Cease

    Cease is the first pitcher to be named POTM in two straight months in a LONG time.

    Cease is the first pitcher ever to allow less than two runs in 13 straight starts.

    I don’t know exactly what “run value” is, but it’s some sort of metric that Statcast uses to grade a pitcher’s individual pitches. Presumably based on things like the amount of movement and quality of contact (or lack thereof). Cease’s slider leads MLB at -30 run value (negative is good). The next closest pitch is Corbin Burnes’s cutter… at -19. No other pitch is better than -16.

      Dyaln could be the current Sox' version of Lamarr without the side issues. That would be sweet if he keeps it up.

        Cease is certainly our #1 pitcher at the moment.

          Cease is our #1 player at the moment. He’s fantastic and just has been a joy to see development. He’s must see baseball.
