Cease is being incredibly disrespected here imo.
The dude hasn't given up a run in his last 4 starts. He's actually posted a shut out in 5 of his last 6.
What is driving his stats a little obscure is that terrible 3 inning outing vs Boston on May 24th. I watched that one, it was truly one of those rare things where he didn't have his good stuff and Boston jumped him early and often in the count. There's no way to predict when a pitcher isn't 100% ready for a start. Whether it's fatigue, a poor warm up, can't get a good grip on the ball etc...
If you take out that game vs Boston, Cease has 0 earned runs in his last 25.2 innings dating back to May 17th.
The Jays have not seen him yet this year.
They've only seen him once and it was last year. 25 PA's, 7 k's, 1 BB, 4 hits, 1 run. They hit him at .167/.533 and Cease's whip was 0.71.
I'll let you guys talk about Gausman who's been withering down slowly but surely. A few starts ago, TW, who's a big Jay's fan, pointed out that he has been losing control of his splitter. That is Gausman's bread n butter.
