There are more than a few players I could think of who belong on this list, but the dubious “winner” was Belisario for his forgettable ’14 season.
I have no problem with Belisario on this list, but De Aza also received a vote, and I would have had no problem voting for John Danks as well.
My vote was for Belisario, and it’s nothing personal, but he didn’t have the season we all hoped he would.
The ’14 numbers of the relief pitcher were a 4-8 record in 62 appearances. His ERA was 5.56 with eight saves in 12 opportunities. He pitched 6.1 innings, allowing 41 earned runs. He allowed the opponents to have a batting average of .295, and he gave up 78 hits.
Now, there might have been pitchers with worse numbers, but if there was any player that made you want to smash your TV whenever he took the mound due to his pitching or the uncertainty, it was Belisario.
August was his worst month with a 10.80 ERA in 10 appearances. He was 0-1 in 8.1 innings of relief. His best month was September, where he was 0-0 with a 2.84 ERA in 6.1 innings of work.
