After a rough start, Kenshin Kawakami had a strong enough May to fend off several potential challengers to his rotation http://18.104.22.168/stats.php?id=2 spot, at least for now. I’m still not sold on him as anything more than a typical #4 starter, which probably makes him roughly the sixth-best Braves starter.
Below, you can see how he brought himself back in line with what the Braves expect from him.
Kenshin has corrected the late-April spike, but he should have some work left to do if he’s going to remain in the rotation for very long.
One thought on “Braves Chart of the Day: June 2, 2009”
Well, he’s had the one terrible start on the 26th, the one great start where he outpitched Roy Halladay, and then six starts that have been consistently respectable for a back-of-the-rotation kind of guy.
I’m not sure how much more we can hope for that downward trend to continue. It may have gone about as far down as it’s going to.
