TOP AL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE RHP Alec Hansen (LoA Kannapolis – Chicago White Sox) 22 years old 7 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 15 K, Win Season Stats: 5-3, 2.96 ERA, 54.2 IP, 46 H, 18 ER, 19 BB, 67 K in 10 starts
- Back-to-back outings for the White Sox’s 10th ranked prospect where his strikeout count reached double-digits. He surpassed last season’s career-high (13) by fanning an astounding 15 hitters last night against Greensboro. The right-hander posted double-digit K’s in three of his 12 starts last season. His 7 innings of work Sunday night was his longest outing and that without issuing a walk.
- Davis is another pitcher that eclipsed his career-high strikeout mark last night. He knocked-down 11 Columbia (NYM) hitters in the nightcap of a doubleheader.
- Moss was 6th pick in 2015 (North Carolina) and made his debut with short-season Hudson Valley in the New York-Penn League. From there, the Rays sent him straight to HiA Charlotte in 2016 where he posted OK numbers. He repeats in 2017, coming off the disable list and making his first appearance last night.
- Borucki’s been around since 2012 (15th Rd) and was another pitcher last night with double-digit K’s and marking a career-high. The 2015 “One to Watch” and 2016 UTR Organizational All-Star is the Blue Jays #14 ranked prospect.
- Ever since allowing 7 earned runs in 2/3 innings on May 16th, Springs has been sitting them down. He struck out 10 batters for the second straight time (12 IP) and the 3rd over his last 5 starts.
- If you focused on Neidert and ask why he didn’t make the AL Pitcher of the Day…just scroll up to see to Alec Hansen‘s 15 K night. Too bad, as it would have been the Mariners top pitching prospect third time already this season. He was the UTR Top Prospect Pitcher for April and a 2016 UTR Organizational All-Star
