Greg Johns of MLB.com argues that Max Stassi has been one of the most critical players in the AL West so far for his individual team. This is certainly an interesting argument.
Ever since this article went live, McCullers has started to use his curveball less and instead has worked on improving his other pitches. We don’t like to give ourselves a pat on the back too often, but Marshall was right on with this take a couple weeks ago.
