Top NL UTR Pitchers – June 2015

Third installment of who were the Top UTR Pitchers of the Month. Lots of new faces adorn this edition, with four hurlers making repeat appearances. Even with the new Leagues starting play in June, very few made an impact to be listed. The Atlanta Braves system actually failed to even have a pitcher mentioned in June, based on my daily tracking system. In the Latin Leagues, the DSL Dodgers had a pitcher make the list and the Colorado Rockies had two pitcher from the Dominican Summer League that just missed…..Yohander Quintana and Jorge Oviedo. Look for the American League in the coming days.
