Rockies starters and times through the order

If you follow baseball, you likely know all about the times through the order penalty. The short version is that the more looks hitters get at the same pitcher, the better they hit ‘em. There are many reasons for this, of course, and we’re going to talk about some of them in this week’s Rockpile. The general approach here is simple: we’re going to take a look at some of the things that cause pitchers to get worse the more they face the same hitter and then we’re going to see how the big four members of the Rockies’ rotation (Márquez, Senzatela, Freeland and Gomber) fare in each phase.
