More on the coming Humidor in Arizona

April 21, 2017

We noted on the message board that a humidor is coming to the Diamondbacks’ stadium. This should be good for pitchers, bad for hitters.

Andrew Perpetua at Fangraphs:

His in-a-nutshell:

If the Humidor is in fact installed in Chase Field, you should expect to see the Diamondback power hitters lose between 4 and 6 home runs, prorated to the remainder of the season. Which, for the purposes of this season, may be a reduction of around 3-4 homers, each.

On the flip side, you might expect their starting pitchers so give up roughly a third fewer home runs. Greinke may seem like an obvious beneficiary, but my analysis suggests he may not be helped very much. Instead, look to guys like Archie Bradley and Robbie Ray.
