Oakland Athletics 1997 record: 65-97 (fourth in
1997 Team Statistics (AL Rank)
Off to a Bad Start
Kenny Rogers averaged only 5.48 innings per start for the Yankees last year, while Tom Candiotti averaged slightly more with the Dodgers (5.87). Both figures were lower than the AL average (5.95) but higher than the average of Oakland's starting staff (5.30, the third-lowest single-season average of any team in major league history). The lack of innings by A's starters was a major reason why the club set a league record with 480 pitching changesone shy of the major league mark set by last year's Giants.
