May 15, 2018 – Under the Radar Pitcher Performances

TOP NL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE
 
LHP Tyler Thomas (LoA South Bend – Chicago Cubs) 22 year old
6.2 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 2.86 ERA, Win 2-3
  • Thomas was the 7th round pick of the Cubs last year out of Cal State Fresno. The southpaw made his debut with short-season Eugene by making 11 appearances from the bullpen. This season, Thomas was placed in the rotation at South Bend and got off to a terrific start by posting a 0.60 ERA in 3 outings. He made a relief appearance on April 27th and things sort went off kilter. On his next start (13 days since his last start), Thomas gave up 5 ER in 5 innings. He got back on track last night by making his longest outing as a pro and tying his career-high in strikeouts.
 
TOP AL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE
 
RHP Trevor Stephan (HiA Tampa- New York Yankees) 22 year old
7 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 11 K, 1.98 ERA, Win 3-1
  • Stephan was the Top Prospect listed as the Top “Minors” American League Pitcher in April 2018 for the Yankees. Ranked as the #18 prospect by Baseball America in the organization, Stephan posted one win with a 1.66 ERA over 21.2 IP and 4 walks with 28 K’s in 4 starts last month. The 3rd round pick in 2017 (U. of Arkansas) struckout a career-high 11 last night vs. Dunedin (Toronto). One concerning factor thus far, is Stephan’s 1.3 HR/9 rate in 35.2 innings (7 starts)
