|Mike Leake suffering from dead arm |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(9/15/14) Reds starting pitcher Mike Leake offered an explanation for his so-so start Sunday at Milwaukee. According to MLB.com, he wasn't pitching at 100 percent.
"I had a little dead arm today," he said. "I didn't have the full ability to give full effort today. Dead arm can get you. It's one of those things that's hard to explain, but everybody understands what it is."
Leake, who has a 7.31 ERA in three September starts, has thrown 202 1/3 innings this season, eclipsing 200 for the first time.
"Certainly not his best stuff, or more importantly, his best command," Reds manager Bryan Pricesaid. "He was behind a lot, yanking a lot of pitches off the plate. That doesn't happen very often with Leaker."
Leake's next start is scheduled for Saturday at St. Louis.

(9/9/14) Reds pitcher Mike Leake earned a win Tuesday, allowing three earned runs on eight hits in six-plus innings while striking out six in his team's 9-5 victory over the Cardinals.
Leake (11-11) held the Cardinals to one run in his first six innings of work but got into trouble in the seventh, leaving the game with runners on the corners and no outs. The bullpen eventually allowed both runs to score. Leake owns a 3.62 ERA and 149:43 K:BB ratio in 196 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Brewers Sunday.
|Mike Leake gets roughed up in no-decision |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(9/5/14) Reds pitcher Mike Leake was roughed up in a no-decision Thursday night against the Orioles in Baltimore. He permitted seven runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out two over four innings of work.
Leake did not allow an earned run in each of his previous two starts before Thursday's meltdown. He owns a 3.59 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP over 29 starts (190 1/3 innings). His next start will come Tuesday at home against St. Louis.
|Mike Leake turns in excellent start Friday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(8/29/14) Reds pitcher Mike Leake turned in an excellent start Friday against the Pirates.
Leake allowed six hits over seven scoreless innings. He struck out one and did not issue a walk during the appearance. Leake didn’t really put himself in a bad situation all night. The only inning where he fell into some trouble was the sixth. After getting the first two outs, Leake gave up a double and a single. He was able to pitch out of it, though. It was the only inning Leake put more than one man on base.
Leake was matched by Edinson Volquez throughout the start. Despite the strong performance, he picked up a no-decision. Leake will take on the Orioles in his next start.
|Four years into his big-league career, Mike Leake is still trying to figure out what he wants to be. In 2012, everyone was targeting him as a sleeper on Draft Day because of the strides he made in 2011, and he burned them, ranking near the bottom in ERA and WHIP among qualifying pitchers. In 2013, no one gave him a second thought, and he was among the hottest pickups off the waiver wire, going 7-3 with a 2.52 ERA and 1.13 WHIP over the first three months. But those last three months in which he compiled a 4.36 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 15 starts ... they brought it all full circle. Maybe Leake is exactly what he's shown himself to be: a pitcher whose control is so good at times that you can't take him out of your lineup but whose stuff is so marginal that he has nothing to fall back on, leading to some of the inconsistencies we've seen. He's still only 26, so he could potentially take another step forward, but as deep as starting pitcher has become, you don't gain much by taking a glass-half-full approach to him. Target him late, if at all, in mixed leagues.
