Starting Pitcher | Retired or Inactive Players
Farish can get into trouble with walks, and there's concern about him being able to maintain his stuff over the whole season. His fastball gets into the high 80s, but it's the sink that makes the pitch effective. Farish also has a decent changeup. His composure needs work. When Farish starts getting hit, he gets mad and loses concentration. The running movement on his pitches makes life tougher on lefties than righties. It's hard to explain but Kersten Farish plays much better on the road then he does at home.
Defense & Hitting
His pickoff move is only fair. Farish is nothing special in the field. Farish is a surpisingly good hitting pitcher. And I'm not sure you can say this about a pitcher, but Farish has some pop in his swing. Interesting sidenote, The Retired or Inactive Players have been known to use Farish as a pinch-runner on occasion.
