Quality start in no-decision
PColorado Rockies
May 24, 2024
Blach did not factor into the decision Friday against Philadelphia, allowing two runs on five hits and one walk over 6.2 innings. He struck out two.
ANALYSIS
Blach survived a difficult test as the Phillies entered Friday with the fourth-best offense in the majors by wRC+ (116). Outside of solo homers allowed to Nick Castellanos and Edmundo Sosa, Blach fared well enough to produce his first quality start of the season. Over 27.2 innings this season, the Rockies lefty has tossed a 4.55 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 12:5 K:BB. Blach is tentatively slated to face the Guardians at home in his next outing.

Stat Review
How does Ty Blach compare to other starting pitchers?
This section compares his stats with all starting pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 120 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 120 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
2017
2015
Blach beat Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers on Opening Day, but that was the high point of the season for both him and the Giants, as a series of poor performances saw Blach removed from the rotation by the start of June as his team fell far out of the playoff race. The move to the bullpen did seem to suit him well. Blach recorded a 3.17 ERA in 34 relief appearances after struggling to a 5.15 mark in 13 starts. He seems destined for a future as a swingman, as he doesn't have the stuff for high-leverage innings. His fastball remained at just 90.6 mph after the switch and his strikeout rate remained low at 17.8%. Blach has a path back to some relevance should injuries strike the Giants' rotation, as he pitches in a friendly enough home park that he could be a viable streamer against certain opponents, but he's not good enough to be worth much consideration during draft season.
Blach was given a long look in the rotation last year and enjoyed some initial success, but all the contact allowed caught up to him and he was ultimately moved to the bullpen late in the season. The lefty posted just a 4.0 K/9, which was easily the lowest mark among qualified starters -- it was even the third-worst mark among the 355 MLB pitchers with at least 50 innings. He limited the free passes and was good against same-handed hitters (.261 wOBA), but Blach struggled away from AT&T Park, especially with the long ball. Now 27 years old, Blach seems unlikely to find a new level to his game, and a permanent move to relief work is probably the best thing for his future. He may be deployed in a specialist's role given the lack of velocity and struggles against right-handed hitters.
Blach proved prepared for his September promotion, as he debuted with a 1.06 ERA in four appearances (two starts). The lefty posted a 3.43 ERA overall in 26 starts with Triple-A Sacramento, who play in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League, and he was especially good after the All-Star break (2.42 ERA, 0.92 WHIP, .193 BAA). His play has put him in the conversation for the team's fifth-starter role this season. However, from a fantasy perspective, Blach is not an especially exciting player given his lack of strikeouts (5.9 K/9 with Giants and 6.2 K/9 in the minors). He will be merely a matchups play in deeper leagues barring sudden skills improvement.
The good news is that Blach registered a 3.13 ERA in 141 innings at Double-A Richmond in 2014. The bad news is that he only notched 91 strikeouts (15.3% K rate), which raises significant concerns about his ability to remain effective as he faces better hitters. Still, at this point there is probably a better case to be made that Blach can survive as a No. 5 starter in the big leagues than highly touted Richmond teammate Kyle Crick, who has infinitely better stuff, but cannot touch Blach’s command, which is exceptional. Betting against a lefty with a plus changeup and the ability to paint the black (or Blach for those who like a bad pun), is never a wise proposition, but Blach’s margin for error is thin. He will look to continue his stellar start to his professional career at Triple-A in 2015, and if everything goes well, Blach could be used as an emergency starter for the Giants later this season.
