Nationals Pitching Daily Briefs (PDB): A Collection

Wily Peralta's HR/FB and LOB Issues + Command Poll

The Milwaukee Brewers send Wily Peralta to the hill against the Nationals tonight. Peralta is a young hurler with a pretty good pedigree, but has yet to see consistent results this year. What can Washington expect tonight? Plus, a poll on command.

Nats PDB: Assessing The Nationals' Starters

Because I profiled Jhoulys Chacin last week, I opted to take a birds-eye look at the Washington Nationals' pitching performance so far this year, as well as how the team is doing in comparison to last year.

Nats PDB: Of Cliff Lee and Greg Maddux

It gets no easier tonight for the Washington Nationals, who face the Phillies' Cliff Lee. Lee has been one of the best pitchers in baseball over the past several years, and 2013 is looking like no exception. The Nats face a tough task tonight.

Nats PDB: Justin Masterson, Not a LHH Liability

Read up on Justin Masterson, and you'll probably learn two things: First, he is a ground ball pitcher. Second, left handed batters hit him well. But his slider effectiveness is something that is less publicized, and lefties may now be trouble.

Nats PDB: Jhoulys Chacin, Pitching Out of Thin Air

Colorado Rockies' right hander Jhoulys Chacin toes the rubber against the Washington Nationals tonight in Denver. Chacin is a young hurler with a good pedigree and solid component numbers. The Nats will have to work to put runs up tonight.

Nats PDB: Kevin Correia, a Chance to Gain Ground

You know how the statistic "Wins Above Replacement" means how far above or below "replacement level" a player is? (Sure!) Well, imagine the Twins' Kevin Correia as the replacement level player, and get upbeat about the Nats' chances.

Nats PDB: Trying to Explain Hefner's LHH Issues

The Washington Nationals return home to face the New York Mets and Jeremy Hefner. After a disappointing series in Atlanta, the good guys have an opportunity to get right back on the horse and take the first of three from a division rival.

Nats PDB Rewind: Teheran, Zimmermann, and Gonzalez

This Pitching Daily Brief looks back at the Atlanta Braves' Julio Teheran, who opposes the Nats this evening in Atlanta. Because it's a shorter analysis, I also checked in on the Washington Nationals' Jordan Zimmermann and Gio Gonzalez.

Nats PDB: Chris Tillman's Continuing Development

Chris Tillman follows Kevin Gausman as a heralded young pitcher for the Baltimore Orioles. His raw stuff isn't as electric as Gausman's, but Tillman has made meaningful steps to capitalize on his promise. Let's check him out.

Nats PDB: Why Kyle Kendrick has a 2.82 ERA

Kyle Kendrick is a seven-year veteran pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies. He's accumulated some of the best results of his career so far this year, winning four games against two losses in nine starts. Improved command has helped his cause.
