Today marks another season opener. 15 games, all the Major League teams going today.
A lot of questions to be answered this year. But here at GopherBalls there’s one question. What pitcher will give up the most Home Runs. We’ll continue to try and highlight that here.
Our 2022 GopherBall leader was Josiah Gray with 38 home runs given up. The 25 year old Washington National averaged 2.3 HR/9 in 148 2/3 innings making him tops in that category (minimum 100 IP).
Who will be our GopherBall GOAT? I mean hero this year? We’re going to predict Robbie Ray. Although, we’ll be looking at Yusei Kikuchi who while didn’t give up a homer this spring, was right behind Gary with a 2.1 HR/9. If the Blue Jays give him enough innings he’s the dark horse.
