does anyone have an explaination about why Livan's walk rate has plummeted this year? I was looking at his season stats and he has a Radke-like 16 walks in 103.1 innings. His graph on FanGraphs tells me he has been right around league average most of his career (see pic below)
Could it be he just throws the ball down the middle of the plate and gives up a ton of hits? Its not strikeouts because Livan just does not miss bats.
