May 20, 2018 – Under the Radar Pitcher Performances

TOP NL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE
 
RHP Evan Guillory (LoA Peoria – St Louis) 22 year old
6 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 11 K, 1.77 ERA
  • A 23rd round pick in 2017 from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette makes his second top mention of 2018. The 6’3″ 210 lb righty matched his career-high by going 8 innings and allowing one earned run. Guillory went 2-1 with a 2.22 ERA, along with 26 strikeouts and 4 walks (24.1 IP), over 4 starts in April.
 
TOP AL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE
 
RHP Brian Howard (HiA Stockton – Oakland) 23 year old
8 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 10 K, 1.34 ERA, Win 3-1
  • Howard had a very strong April by making 3 mentions last month that bouyed his Top “Minors” National League Pitcher for April 2018 honor. Howard is proving to the California League hitters, that its tough to earn a hit off the 8th round pick (2017) from TCU. Maybe seeing pitches from the downward plane of a lanky (6’9″ 185 lbs) right-hand arm might have something to do with that. Howard’s 2.56 ERA currently ranks within the top five in the league, but its his 0.92 WHIP that’s best in the Cali League. Howard was my choice for the pre-season 2018 “One to Watch” for the Athletics.

RHP Edward Cabrera (LoA Greensboro – Miami) 20 years old

HiA Mentions – Starters
 
RHP Michael Baumann (HiA Frederick – Baltimore) 22 years old
7 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 1.29 ERA, Win 1-0
  • Baumann makes his HiA debut after posting a South Atlantic League leading 5-0 record and a 1.42 ERA (11.1 K/9 and 3.1 BB/9) in 38 innings in 7 starts.

RHP Kevin McCanna (HiA Visalia – Arizona) 24 years old
7 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 1.90 ERA, Win 2-0
  • McCanna having better success since his promotion from LoA Kane County. Its not his first foray at that level though, as he spent time at HiA Lancaster with the Houston orgainzation (17 appearances). The D-Backs plucked the 6’1″ 185 lb righty from the Indy League last season.
