Bush has put in the exact opposite season as Baker, giving the Brewers a high rate of quality starts; four in a row and seven in eight starts. His walk and strikeout rates are his best since 2006, but his FIP insists he's not pitching quite as well as his ERA says he is. Stil, the 4.94 FIP is better than Baker's, which we won't even put down. Hitters aren't swinging at as many of Bush's pitches that end up outside the zone, and they're making more contact overall, so here's hoping that the Twins can catch up to him a little bit. He offers a fastball, cutter, slider, changeup and an exceptionally slow curveball.Lineups when they're available...
