UTRMinors – National League Top Pitchers – May 2016

Here is the second edition for the 2016 season. The list for April can be found here.

Arizona

RHP Justin Donatella (LoA Kane County) 21 years old
May stats: 2-2, 3.09 ERA, 32 IP, 32 H, 11 ER, 6 BB, 23 K in 6 starts
Season stats: 5-2, 1.96 ERA, 55 IP, 47 H, 12 ER, 8 BB, 43 K in 10 starts
  • 15th round pick in 2015 made two appearances as the Top UTR performer in April and continued to roll to repeat for May.
Atlanta

RHP Enderson Franco (HiA Carolina) 23 years old
May stats: 1-2, 3.30 ERA, 30 IP, 28 H, 11 ER, 3 BB, 28 K in 5 starts
Season stats: 3-3, 5.02 ERA, 52 IP, 65 H, 29 ER, 11 BB, 46 K in 10 starts
  • Franco was signed as an International free agent by Houston in 2009 and has seen 4 different teams over the last 7 seasons. He’s a rarity in that he has been selected twice in the Rule 5 draft (Tampa Bay in 2013 and Atlanta in 2015). The right-hander is a strike-thrower (4:1 K:BB ratio) and a BABIP of .457 in April didn’t get him off to a good start. Could be a sleeper if he can gain traction and can stay put with one team for a whole season.
