BREW MATHs uses a heavy dose of Sabermetrics to break down the man’s defensive greatness… After all, you can’t spell gold without “Lo!”
Alex Claudio has appeared in more games than any other Major League Pitcher in 2019. He has also taken more criticism than most players in The League. Is it warranted?

On July 29th, 2019 it was announced that The Brewers traded RHP Cody Ponce (AA) to The Pirates for Jordan Lyles. While it was not the blockbuster that many fans had hoped for, it nets The Crew a servicable Major League Arm. It is a low risk move as The Brewers would have likely parted ways with Ponce at the end of the year.
In this Saber Snapshot, the aim is to highlight what Lyles will bring to the team. Per usual, it will be a graphic-packed affair that aims to dial in on the metrics that matter.
Since Keston Hiura has been recalled from The Missions (AAA) on June 28th, he has been destroying opposing pitchers. BREW MATHs digs into his silky smooth swing and attempts to quantify his greatness.
