|Jeff Locke not buying regression talk|
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(5/20/13) Pirates pitcher Jeff Locke knows the advanced stats say he'll regress, but he contends he's a different pitcher this season, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
Locke has a 2.73 ERA in nine starts, but his 4.47 FIP indicates that he's been pitching over his head. Locke said the stat hasn't picked up on the fact that he's throwing a two-seam fastball or the adjustment he made with his delivery. Locke believes he's getting more deception after learning from Erik Bedard.
Nothing in Locke's profile suggests his performance is sustainable. Neither his walk and strikeout rate is elite, and his .224 BABIP will not last. Locke has been extremely homer-prone over his career, but getting that rate down could help his overall numbers. Still, the advanced stats are concerning, despite Locke's insistence.

(5/19/13) Pirates starter Jeff Locked threw seven scoreless innings Sunday in a win over Houston.
Locke remains scorching to open the season. He struck out four against just two walks and three hits. His ERA fell to a sterling 2.73.
|Jeff Locke Ks six in no-decision|
|by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com|
(5/14/13) Pirates pitcher Jeff Locke posted a quality start for the third time in his last four outings on Tuesday night against the Brewers. He allowed three runs on seven hits over six innings of work.
The left-hander surrendered a solo homer to Jean Segura in the first before Carlos Gomez hit an RBI double in the fourth. Milwaukee pushed across another run in the fifth for his final damage.
He left in line for the loss but his teammates were able to battle back to tie the game. Locke also struck out six with one walk in a no-decision.
His next start is scheduled for Sunday against the Astros.
|Give Jeff Locke a look|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(5/11/13) Pirates starting pitcher Jeff Locke continues to confound expectations by pitching at a high level, and it has reached the point where Fantasy owners should take a chance on the 25-year-old.
Locke has just three more strikeouts (22) than walks (19), but he has still managed a 2.95 ERA on the season. His ugly 4.84 FIP makes it hard to expect him to keep this up, but at some point Fantasy owners have to go with the hot hand.
Week 7 (May 13-19) looks like a good opportunity to try and catch lighting in a bottle with Locke, as he gets set to take the mound twice. Lock is set to take on the Brewers' 13th-ranked offense Tuesday, before facing the Astros Sunday. Houston especially should provide a good opportunity for success, as it has been the most strikeout-prone team in the majors by a considerable distance, as the Astros are the only team averaging 10-plus strikeouts per game.
I don't expect Locke to remain a sub-3.00 ERA pitcher for long, but in deeper Fantasy formats, he might be worth snagging off waiver wires in Week 7.
|Jeff Locke getting some looks|
|by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com|
(5/10/13) Fantasy owners are starting to pay closer attention to Pirates pitcher Jeff Locke, as evidenced by his appearance on the most viewed list heading into Week 7. One reason keeping owners from picking him up is his less-than-impressive strikeout-to-walk ratio.
Our Scott White said on Friday’s broadcast of Fantasy Baseball Today that Locke would need “pristine control” for the rest of the season to keep his ERA around its current 2.95.
