He’s the one of the nine on the list who would’ve fallen considerably shy of meeting the column’s former qualifications, though the adjustments were designed to reward pitchers for absurdly elite strikeout ability rather than exclude them for perhaps being somewhat unlucky in the control department. Steckenrider had a 7.9 percent walk rate in the minors between 2016 and 2017, so he’s better in that regard than his numbers in his 37-start debut with the Marlins suggest (11.9 percent).

The medals won’t be handed out until the second part of the ice dancing competition, the free skate, which will be held on Monday evening. But we’re going to have full live results of the short program on Sunday, as the scores from both will determine the eventual podium finishers.
The other teams to keep an eye on are Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of Canada, as well as Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron of France. Below is all you need to know to watch on Sunday, while live results will be added to the top of this article when the event gets underway.
That’s not the only gold to be awarded on Sunday, but Feb. 18 is a bit of a reloading day for the games. Only five finals will take place during the day — none of which will take place in primetime. If you’re looking for live events on Sunday during NBC’s primetime schdule, the schedule will limit you to halfpipe skiing and ice dancing.
Aside from the women’s speedskating sprint, podiums will be decided in the freestyle skiing aerials competition, and in both men’s cross-country skiing, and the biathlon. History will be made at the Alpensia Ski Jumping Centre when the women compete in the first-ever Olympic snowboarding big air event prelims.
And if you’re willing to stay up late, you can watch one of the biggest hockey games at the 2018 Winter Olympics. The United States women will take on Finland, fresh off a 7-2 stomping of rival Sweden, in a semifinal showdown. A win will send Team USA to the final, where a gold medal rematch with Canada may await.
Here’s how you can track down Sunday’s biggest events, beginning with live ice dancing coverage and ending with the U.S.’s opportunity to guarantee at least a silver medal in women’s hockey.
