112 H (7.36 H/9)
1.26 WHIP - not good, but walks are contributing to it.
Not missing bats. Not great command, but getting slightly better there. Getting hit, but not giving up too many long balls. Hopefully he's just BABIP unlucky and will get better with his command. He needs to shave off at least one walk per 9 innings.
For a starting pitcher, a 1.26 WHIP is quite good.
