July 28, 2014 – UTR Pitcher Performances (The Call to the Pen)

Well, it’s time to return the favor.  As Jim alerted me several days ago that a vacation might be on his horizon, he finally took the much needed plunge.  With his break comes the time I return the (ever so gracious) favor he bestowed upon me during my trip to Cape Cod in early July.  Just as Jim stated in his disclaimer when posting UTR Hitters of the Day stat lines, the pitcher information I’m posting in Jim’s absence will be without TPS criteria attached.  One thing I love about working with Jim after all these years is neither he or I require a criteria check. I didn’t need to explain to Jim what I look for in a hitter [line] nor does he have to have a sit down with me regarding his pitcher stats. It’s all up here (points to brain.)  So, I ask for your patience, understanding and hope I can hang with Jim, the resident guru who toes the rubber every day here at UTRminors.
