June 2, 2016 – Under the Radar Pitcher Performances

By Jim Brown
 
Hey UTR Readers…Its been awhile since I’ve chimed-in. Things having been rolling along with the daily’s out of LoA & HiA. I hope that you have a few prospects on your short-list. If you don’t, then I have some more for consideration, as the Top UTR Pitchers for May will be posted this weekend. The National League will be first-up tomorrow morning. Also tomorrow, the Dominican Summer League will begin their season and then the Rookie Leagues couple weeks later. All this activity will create a format change with the daily mentions. If your new to the site, once all the leagues are in full-swing…..I will be highlighting the best performance from each league, sans the Venezuelan League, which disbanded. I will also mention the overall best Relief appearance and the pitcher which just missed the cut, which I call the “Radar Blip”.
Please give Marc and myself  a follow on Twitter….Let us know how we are doing or any ideas that you would like to see on the site.
