June 1, 2018 – Under the Radar Pitcher Performances

TOP NL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE
 
RHP Dean Kremer (HiA Rancho Cucamonga – Los Angeles Dodgers) 22 years old
5 IP, 1 H, 0 ER,  1 BB, 9 K, 3.58 ERA, Win 4-2
  • The 14th round pick out of UNLV in 2016 had another outstanding outing last night, and back to back top UTR performances. Last week, Kremer threw a six inning no-hit gem to go along with setting a career-high in strikeouts with ten. He almost did a repeat performance last night with 5 innings of one-hit ball and nine K’s. The 6’3″ 180 lb right-hander was tasked at HiA Rancho Cucamonga last season after skipping across two rookie levels which complied only 31.2 innings. This season, compared to last, has seen an improvement of contact made and missing more bats. Kremer is the first Israeli to be drafted in the MLB. Here’s that back story article.
 
TOP AL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE
 
RHP Riley O’Brien (LoA Bowling Green – Tampa Bay) 23 year old
5 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, 1.98 ERA, Win 2-1
  • In only his third start of 2018, O’Brien shoots his second scoreless outing in-a-row to lower his ERA to 1.98 in 13 appearances. It was also his longest start of the season, as the Rays stretched out the 6’4″ 170 lb righty for the rotation. Its not the first foray as a starter for the 8th round pick in 2017. O’Brien took the mound 10 times as a starter for the Princeton Rays in the rookie Appy League last season. He posted  a 2.31 ERA with 37 strikeouts over 39 innings, along with only 28 hits and 17 walks. This is the first mention for O’Brien here at UTRMinors.
