TOP NL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE

6 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 11 K
Season Stats: 1-2, 1.80 ERA, 30 IP, 26 H, 6 ER, 3 BB, 28 K in 5 starts 
  • When two of my  2017 “Ones to Watch” picks face each other, Im paying attention. Last night didn’t disappoint, as Santos went up against LoA Greensboro and Jordan Holloway. After 5 innings, Santos gave up two hits with 10 strikeouts, while Holloway was spinning a no-hitter. The game ended up going into extras and Hoppers scored 2 runs in to the 10th for the 2-1 win. Santos picked-up one more K to set a career-high. The 20-year old made his U.S. debut last season after only 34 innings in the DSL.
 
National League – Starters
RHP Jordan Holloway (LoA Greensboro – Miami) 20 years old
5 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, 3.91 ERA 
  • Holloway went pitch-for-pitch with today’s POD Santos last night. Despite throwing 5 no-hit innings, he couldn’t earn his 2nd POD mention with Santo’s getting 11 of his 18 outs via strikeout. The Greensboro staff did combined for a one-hitter. Todays relief pitcher of the day, Ben Meyer, took the ball after Holloway and struck out six over 3 innings. The 15th ranked prospect is my Marlins’ UTR “One to Watch” for 2017.
RHP Melvin Adon (LoA Augusta – San Francisco) 22 years old
6 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 6 K, 2.55 ERA
  • Giants #17 ranked prospect 
LHP Cole Irvin (HiA Clearwater – Philadelphia) 23 years old
6 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, Win 3-1, 1.04 ERA
 
RHP Cody Poteet (HiA Jupiter – Miami) 22 years old
6 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, Win 2-0, 1.33 ERA
RHP Jesus Reyes (HiA Daytona – Cincinnati) 24 years old
7 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, 3.47 ERA
 
LHP Tyler Pike (HiA Florida – Atlanta) 23 years old
7 IP, 5 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, Win 1-1, 2.63 ERA
 
National League – Relief

TOP AL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE

LHP Phillip Diehl (LoA Charleston – New York Yankees) 22 years old
5 IP, 3 H,1 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, Win 
Season Stats: 3-0, 2.33 ERA, 5 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 5 K in 5 appearances with 1 start
  • The 27th round pick in 2016 finally got a chance to make a start last night against Delmarva, picking up the win to go 3-0. Diehl has looked solid during his other 4 appearances piggying-backing off other starters, especially  for Freicer Perez. In his debut season, Diehl went 5-0, 2.41 ERA, with 41 strikeouts and 6 walks in 33.2 innings. Diehl’s ceiling should be a late-innings reliever with his mid 90’s fastball and swing-and-miss slider.

RHP Shaun Anderson (LoA Greenville – Boston) 22 years old
6 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 0.98 ERA
