A look at how the 2016 Clearwater Threshers pitchers stacked up against the league averages

The Clearwater Threshers were right in the middle of the pack in the Florida State League in pitching this season. Let's compare how their individual pitchers stack up to the rest of the FSL.

Clearwater had just one pitcher - Elniery Garcia - who threw 109 or more innings, which qualified him to be ranked among the league leaders in pitching categories such as ERA and WHIP. Here is how Garcia stacked up against the league averages.

ERA WHIP H/9 IP HR/9 IP BB/9 IP KO/9 IP KO/BB WP/9 IP URA DP/9 IP
FSL Average 3.58 1.31 8.51 0.55 3.25 7.64 2.35 0.64 0.59 0.74
Elniery Garcia 2.68 1.11 7.19 0.61 2.75 6.96 2.53 0.38 0.46 0.38

*Numbers in BOLD were better than the league average. A BOLD under URA means the pitcher was hurt more by his defense than the average GCL pitcher.

The following pitchers also spent considerable time with Clearwater this season, but didn't pitch at least 109 innings.
