Sponichi makes note of how Dicky Gonzalez went 104kg last season to 110kg at the start of this season. They're suggesting (and perhaps the Giants are as well) that the extra weight is the cause of his ineffectiveness this year and that it wasn't until about June that Gonzalez actually started working on losing weight.
Not really sure if I buy that, since Gonzalez has actually been doing worse since June.
|From June on||7||37.0||69||20||10||6.32||1.65||4.9||2.4|
But 7 games is a fairly small sample size.
Still, the drop in SO/9 and the rise in BB/9 is a bit of a concern.
