Keep or Kut These Slow Starts?

Are we keeping or kutting these slow starters?

Keep or Kut – Pete (@PeteBBaseball) is back! He and Chad (@chadyoung) are looking at some slow starts to the season and debating who they are going to keep and who they are going to kut. They’re looking at pitcher whose FIP is well-above their projected FIP and hitters whose wOBA is well-below their projected wOBA.
