May 30, 2018 – Under the Radar Pitcher Performances

TOP NL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE
 
LHP Will Stewart (LoA Lakewood – Philadelphia) 20 years old
6 IP, 2 H, 0 ER,  1 BB, 10 K, 4.26 ERA, Win 3-3
  • It was a night of firsts for the 20th round pick in 2016 out of Hazel Green High School (Alabama). Stewart went all nine innings last night for his first complete game, the longest of his career, and he touched double-digits K’s for another career-high. He also spun a scoreless outing, his second this season, and his 5th start without allowing an earned run. Reports state that Stewart’s velocity has seen an uptick, but there is room for improvement toward his secondary offerings.
 
TOP AL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE
 
RHP Jonathan Hernandez (HiA Down East – Texas) 20 year old
8 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 11 K, 1.66 ERA, Win 4-2
  • Of late, several pitchers have made their mentions because of being on a roll. Nobody is rolling like Jonathan Hernandez, who pitched his third straight outing where he’s registered double-digit strikeouts. The 6’2″ 175 lb 2017 UTR Organizational All-Star has struck out 31 batters over his last 20 innings and has given up only nine hits and two earned runs. It might be a good time to add Hernandez to your minor league roster or stash him to your fantasy team, if you have a open spot. Hernandez has positioned himself for back to back Top Pitcher of the Month honors, which will be posted this weekend.

LoA Mentions – Starters
 
LHP Zack Draper (LoA Lake County – Cleveland) 23 years old
6 IP,  1 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, 0.00 ERA
  • Draper makes his first appearance of 2018 and first LoA start after advancing through 3 rookie levels in 2017.
RHP Maximo Castillo  (LoA Lansing – Toronto) 19 years old
5 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 9 K, 5.76 ERA
RHP Huascar Ynoa (LoA Rome  – Atlanta) 20 years old
6 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 9 K, 5.62 ERA, Win 2-6
  • Ynoa is resetting things with the Braves after being traded by the Twins for Jaime Garcia. The 6’3″ 175 lb Dominican righty was a Top 20 International prospect in 2014 after being signed as a 16 year old. His stat lines don’t tell that tale, but here’s a good read that may show that the Braves may develop a gem.
RHP Evan Guillory (LoA Peoria  – St Louis) 22 years old
7 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, 2.74 ERA, Win 5-3
RHP Jhoan Duran (LoA Kane County  – Arizona) 20 years old
5 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 6 K, 2.33 ERA, Win 2-0
