April 22, 2018 – Under the Radar Pitcher Performances

TOP NL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE
RHP Matt Swarmer (HiA Myrtle Beach – Chicago Cubs) 24 year old
6 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 7 K, 1.72 ERA, Win 1-2
  • Swarmer was a 19th round selection out of Kutztown (Pa.) in 2016, where he debuted in the Arizona rookie league (AZL), making 8 appearances. His sophomore season was unorthodox for a low round pick, in that he started at LoA South Bend; demoted to short-season Eugene; and saw some work at Double-A Tennessee and AAA Iowa. In 21 low level appearances last season, the lanky righty (6’5″ 175 lb) posted a 4.22 ERA over 85. innings with 89 strikeouts and 17 walks. His spot start with Triple-A Iowa was a 7 inning scoreless affair with 8 K’s and only one free pass. This is Swarmer’s 2nd UTR mention this season.

LHP Zac Lowther (LoA Delmarva  – Baltimore) 21 year old
5 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 11 K, 0.56 ERA, Loss 2-1
  • Lowther was the hard luck loser last night after giving up his first earned run of the season. he was locked up in a pitchers dual with Lakewood’s (Phillies) Connor Brogdon.  Despite the loss, the lefty earns his second UTR POD mention and third overall.
