Top AL UTR Pitchers – May 2015

American League’s Top UTR  for May brought a few surprises, 3 repeaters, and that Detroit and Oakland’s system are lacking of UTR pitchers. This means, that for my fellow trackers, a UTR gem may surface when the Rookie Leagues begin in the next couple weeks. I started with the National League yesterday, so if you missed that list….go here after checking out the AL
