JEFF LOCKE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Locke key to Bucs' success against Rockies

There's room for debate about when Jeff Locke was last as effective as he was on Monday night, dealing six shutout innings with eight strikeouts in the Pirates' 6-1 win over the Rockies at Coors Field.

Bad luck, defensive miscues compound Locke's woes

The Padres hit ground ball after ground ball in the second inning on Wednesday night, typically a good sign for any pitcher. But that wasn't the case for Pirates lefty Jeff Locke.

Knowing When to Lift Jeff Locke

If the Pittsburgh Pirates are going to catch the St. Louis Cardinals in the standings Clint Hurdle is going to have to do a much better job of managing the back end of the Pirates rotation. Last night he continued a post All-Star Break trend of leaving back of the rotation starting pitchers in the game to give it away in the middle innings. Last night with the Pirates leading 3...

Catching up on Sunday morning: Locke and others

I made the decision to come back to PA for the Fourth this weekend pretty late, so I knew when I decided to come that I’d be seeing Jeff Locke in person on Saturday. I was a bit worried about this; it’s never fun to make the trip home and then to see a baseball game that’s over before it starts or that takes 3+ hours because the starter threw 95 pitches in four innings. We...

Jeff Locke Salutes America

For all the crap we’ve given Jeff Locke throughout the year, you’ve gotta give him major props for not only throwing an eight inning shutout masterpiece on Saturday, but also for doing it in record time (the game barely cracked two hours) – giving everyone more time to enjoy the holiday on a beautiful afternoon/evening. Sure, a quiet day from the Pirate offense helped out with...

Impossible shutout streak, meet Jeff Locke

The Pirates take their crazy streak of shutout innings and incredible on the road tonight to continue their home-and-home with the White Sox. The Pirates’ last road trip went quite well, with a 7-3 run through San Diego, San Francisco, and Atlanta. Jeff Locke starts for the Bucs tonight and his last start against the Phillies was quite good — he threw six shutout innings, striking...

Jeff Locke tries to get the Pirates a split with the Cubs

It’s only been two games, but I’ve been quite impressed with the 2015 version of Jeff Locke. I don’t like to jump to too many conclusions based on just a couple of games, but Locke’s control looks vastly improved this year and his ground balls are way up. Obviously Locke’s control has varied pretty widely from start-to-start over his career, but I feel like we’ve seen...

Jeff Locke < 500

I finally got a chance to peruse this year’s Baseball Prospectus this weekend and among other things in the Pirates’ section (including a great team essay by Sarah Sprague, if you needed another reason to pick the book up) I was surprised to find this in the Jeff Locke blurb: Despite being optioned three times last year, including once as a procedural move, Locke found time to...

Pirates 6, Rays 5

Another (mostly) smooth win for the Bucs, who have now won four in a row and above .500 for the first time in over two months. How about Jeff Locke? Since returning from Indianapolis – where he was extremely mediocre – he has been absolutely brilliant. I don’t think anyone expected this, but Locke has actually looked better than he did in the first half of last season for...
