In episode 44 of the EVT podcast, we began with some banter about the San Diego Padres.

We talked about the weekend series with the Milwaukee Brewers, how Luis Perdomo and Dinelson Lamet looked over the weekend, and how Wil Myers and Yangervis Solarte both had solid showings.

The conversation then moved to trade chips, as Yangervis Solarte and Clayton Richard have both been performing well and building up their respective trade value.

We finished up our discussion by talking about the Padres signing of fourth-round pick Sam Keating and when we can expect news on the rest of the drafted players.

For our main segment, we brought on my old friend Casey Boguslaw of RO Baseball to talk barrels and Barrel FIP. I have known Casey for nearly two years now and we have worked together on a variety of different baseball blogs, most recently RO Baseball.

Casey began by giving us a rundown on what it means for a ball to be barreled, and then got into how he came to create his Barrel FIP stat and how he calculates it.

We then discussed several Padres players and how they fared with regard to barrels, including Clayton Richard, Luis Perdomo, Jhoulys Chacin, Dinelson Lamet, and the ever infamous Jered Weaver.

We then discussed the Padres’ bullpen trade pieces and how they have fared this season, focusing on Brad Hand and Brandon Maurer.

We finished up the podcast by asking Casey about Fernando Tatis Jr. and how the White Sox gave him away as a throw-in in the James Shields trade.

We would like to thank Casey for taking the time to come on the show, and let us know if you have any questions for Casey on barrels and Barrel FIP or any comments on the show. Thanks for listening and don’t forget to check out our sponsor,
