May 8, 2018 – Under the Radar Pitcher Performances

TOP NL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE
 
LHP Austin Warner (HiA Palm Beach – St Louis) 23 year old
7.1 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 9 K, 3.86 ERA
  • Warner gets the top NL spot for the second start in-a-row and third straight. Over those outings, the 5’11” 185 lb lefty has allowed 4 earned runs over 22.1 innings with 28 strikeouts and 3 walks. The Cardinals scalped Warner from the Indy Leagues in June last season.
 
TOP AL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE
 
LHP Brian Gonzalez (HiA Frederick – Baltimore) 22 year old
7 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 7 K, 3.12 ERA, Win 2-2
  • At 22 years old, Gonzalez has been in the Orioles system for 5 seasons. He was a 2014 Organizational All-Star during his pro debut season with the GCL Orioles and short-season Aberdeen. The 6’3″ 230 lb southpaw was taxed the following season with a 100+ inning workload (23 starts), posted a 5.31 ERA, and faded off my radar. He listed “Just off the Scope” prior to the 2016 season, but had a solid year with LoA Delmarva and returned as a 2016 UTR Organizational All-Star. He regressed last season (4.91 ERA) at Frederick, so more seasoning there was in order with his return assignment in 2018.
