Sunday Mike Burns pitched again for Louisville. He went 2 and 2/3 innings, no runs, one k, and one bb. Overall in Louisville, he has pitched 43 and 2/3 innings, and given up only 32 hits and 5 runs! His ERA is 1.03! He also has 41 Ks, and only 7 walks. That is a WHIP of less than 1.00!
I fully realize how badly he has done in his call-ups earlier this season. He has pitched 13 and 2/3 innings, and given up 30 hits and 13 runs, for an ERA of 8.78. Also has 3 walks, two hit batters, and 9 Ks.
His BABIP with the Reds is .528! That means over half of the balls hit into play resulted in hits. That is generally considered VERY unlucky.
At some point this year, Burns needs another shot. His numbers were much better with Houston last year, and his AAA stats are amazing....I also note that he has spot started two games for the Bats....Maybe we should send Joe Mays packing, and try Burns again?
