July 21, 2016 – Under the Radar Pitcher Performances

Good Morning UTR Followers…..its just you and I for several days, as I am minding the store while Marc is off on vacation. I’m still on a vacation that began in late May, that saw me solidify my membership in AARP by actually retiring after 35 years of service. They say an adjustment period of up to three months is needed, but I have settled-in very nicely….thanks to having this site. I am trying to provide new content to break-up the monotony from our daily posts. I just recently published an in-season Report Card on my National League “Ones To Watch”, which can be found here. I’m somewhat behind on the American League feature, but it will be posted soon. Marc stated the other day that our daily work is beginning to wind-down, as the end of the season is drawing near. Since I have begun tracking pitchers, I have always followed an 18-week schedule which will conclude, this season, with my last post on August 14th. We know that the end of the season is not until early September, but with pitching staffs, the organizations tend to flirt with different combinations or start to shutdown kids all together. I will still keep a close watch, especially with the Rookie Leagues, but will begin to strictly focus on my post-season work and the creation the UTR Organizational All-Star rosters and naming the “Ones  To Watch” for 2017. Have a great weekend everybody…and for those on the East Coast, stay cool with the impending heatwave that is moving in today. Until tomorrow…….
RHP Johan Dominguez (DSL Brewers – Milwaukee) 20 years old
6 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 8 K, 1.62 ERA
Gulf Coast League
No Pitcher Qualified for Mention

Arizona League
LHP Conner Menez (AZL Giants – San Francisco) 21 years old
5 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 2.57 ERA, Win 2-0
Appy League
No Pitcher Qualified for Mention
Pioneer League
RHP Jordan Desguin (Helena – Milwaukee) 22 years old
6 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K, 2.75 ERA, Win 2-0
This kid has been impressive since being drafted in the 36th round in 2015. The Brewers have been alternating his outings between the bullpen and starting this season with great results.
Short-Season League
LHP Bailey Falter (NY-Penn League Williamsport – Philadelphia) 19 years old
6 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 10 K, 3.21 ERA
 Falter got off to a slow start to the season (7.50 ERA in June), but has really stepped it up since the promotion of  Seranthony Dominguez to LoA Lakewood.
RHP  Jose Taveras (LoA Lakewood – Philadelphia) 22 years old
8 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 10 K, 3.82 ERA, Win 4-7
Taveras touches double-digit strikeouts again, in a follow-up to his 15 K performance on June 25th.
LHP Thomas Pannone (Lynchburg – Cleveland) 22 years old
7 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 0.73 ERA, Win 2-0
Pannone made his first HiA start since being promoted and picking up his second win in as many appearances. He came into the 3rd inning of his HiA debut on July 13th and closed out the game for the W. If you take a close look at the Indians staff roster  in Triple-A and Double-A, Pannone should be on your stash list for 2017, as his UTR resume below will state:
Top Relief Pitcher Performance
RHP Kuehl McEarchern (NY-Penn League Lowell – Boston) 23 years old
2 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, 0.61 ERA
The 34th rounder (2014) is back in Lowell working things out, after a rough go at LoA Greenville to start the season. He spent a brief time in the NY-Penn League (13 apps) during this debut season and was moved up to LoA Greenville to begin the 2015 season, with a stint at HiA Salem at the end.
LHP Logan Boyd (LoA Greenville – Boston) 22 years old
7 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 8 K, Win 9-6
