All the while he was putting up a respectable 8.41 K/9. Those are all good numbers.
This year in AA, in 27.2 IP, he has a 2.60 ERA, with 18K and 13 BB. He's allowed only 1 HR. His GB % dropped from the awesome 65% last year at Sarasota to a more normal 47% this year. The drop in GB rate and the K/BB ratio are a little concerning, but he's doing ok so far.
How are your sleepers doing?
Please remember that two of the BB yesterday were intentional.
