Two-Start Treasures / May 8th to May 14th

We are now a month into the Minor League season, so I would like to continue a feature that I started in 2017…..Two-Start Treasures. Last season, I thought it would be fun to include with my tracking the UTR pitchers who made two starts within the week and dominated. I used to do this during our time providing content to MLBDepthCharts.com (now RosterResources.com) when it was just a Pitcher of the Week feature. Now that I throw a list of pitchers at our readers each day, really good back-to-back outings could get lost in the mix. Plus, a pitcher might have been solid in two starts, but didn’t make the daily mention due to being bumped.

So, let’s highlight the two-starters from May 8th to 14th. I’ve also included Double-A pitchers and, as always, I throw in the best Relief performance for the week too.
