May 28, 2018 – Under the Radar Pitcher Performances

RHP Alfredo Tavarez (LoA Great Lakes – Los Angeles Dodgers) 20 years old
5 IP, 0 H, 0 ER,  3 BB, 4 K, 4.76 ERA
  • The Great Lake Loons have been taxed with their share of weather related postponements and cancellations and were in need of extra arms to handle the doubleheaders, keeping their schedule on track. Tavarez got the call to start yesterday to relieve the pressure from the regular starters, and 6′ 5″ 190 lb Dominican righty answered that call by throwing five hitless innings. Since coming over the Dominican Summer League in 2017, Tavarez has been being aggressively pushed through the  system and had already gotten his first taste of LoA during the last month of the 2017 season. He made five starts for Great Lakes and posted a 5.40 ERA ( 12 ER in 20 IP). Tavarez is capable of missing bats (8.8 K/9 in 115 innings), but needs to polish his command and control which would elevate his ceiling into top prospect status.
LHP Dalton Lehnen (LoA Charleston – New York Yankees) 22 year old
6 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 4 BB, 7 K, 2.28 ERA, Win 3-3
  • Lehnen was rolling along through his first six starts in 2018 (2.14 ERA, 33.2 IP, 26 H, 8 ER, 4 BB, 36 K) before suffering first his horrible outing, which came on May 15th where the 6th round pick (2017) was pulled at the end of the 2nd inning, after allowing 4 earned runs. He’s back on track after pitching his second consecutive scoreless outing.
