What do you make of these numbers?

Julio Teheran has vastly different numbers depending on who he's throwing to.
 
  • Gerald Laird - 17 G, 111 1/3 IP, 2.91 ERA - .245/.306/.393 (.700)
  • Brian McCann - 22 G, 121 2/3 IP, 3.18 ERA - .237/.292/.400 (.692)
  • Evan Gattis - 23 G, 152 2/3 IP, 3.30 ERA - .237/.274/.367 (.668)
  • Christian Bethancourt - 18 G, 113 1/3 IP, 3.41 ERA - .241/.303/.365 (.668)
  • Tyler Flowers - 45 G, 262 2/3 IP, 3.91 ERA - .236/.300/.421 (.720)
  • Kurt Suzuki - 26 G, 142 IP, 4.06 ERA - .225/.312/.399 (.711)
  • A.J. Pierzynski - 22 G, 116 1/3 IP, 5.11 ERA - .273/.348/.467 (.815)

I left out the guys who only caught Julio a few times because it was too much of a sample size to factor in. But as you can see, Teheran hasn't done nearly as well the last fews years pitching to Flowers, Suzuki and Pierzynski as his main catchers compared to throwing to Laird, McCann, Gattis and Bethancourt. Those are reflected in his overall numbers.

I think it simply means he's not as good in recent years as prior ones. I don't think Teheran's issues are catcher related.

Honestly? I don't know. Seems for some pitchers they do better with different catchers for whatever reason. Maybe that's not the case with Julio and maybe it is. I don't know.
