Former MLB pitcher Brad Woodall says a lot of players go through a slump this time in the MLB season. Woodall joined the Mike Heller Show on Wednesday to talk about Haders struggles and where the Brewers are at this point in the season.
Via Madison.com: "Josh Hader’s dominant performance a year ago made him one of the game’s most feared pitchers.
And nearing the home stretch of the 2019 season, his numbers aren’t too much different: his 16.9 strikeout rate is actually higher than it was in 2018 (15.8); his 0.795 WHIP is slightly lower than the 0.811 mark he posted last season; and his walk rate is down from 3.3 to 2.4.
One number, though, that has many scratching their heads is Hader’s home runs: After giving up 13 in 129 innings during his first two seasons, Hader has allowed 12 in 55⅓ innings in 2019, including three in his past five appearances."
