How’d He Do in 2016?
In broad strokes, Robles pitched 77.2 innings, with a 6-4 record and a 3.48 ERA. He struck out 9.8 batters per 9 innings, but walked 4.2 per 9 as well.
Alas, he was wilder this year, seeing his K/BB ratio dip from 3.39 in 2015 to 2.36 in 2016. He walked 36 compared to 18 in 2015, and saw his WHIP rise to 1.352 compared to 1.019 last year. He was better in the 1st half than the 2nd, with a 2.38 ERA compared to a 4.08 ERA, respectively.
That was, however, marred by an awful stretch in August, when he gave up 15 runs in 13 games.
Hansel did collect his 1st Major League save with 2 2/3 innings pitched (an old-school save) against the Phillies on September 23, 2016.
