June 20, 2018 – Under the Radar Pitcher Performances

RHP Jordan Yamamoto (HiA Jupiter – Miami) 22 years old
7 IP, 2 H, 0 ER,  0 BB, 13 K, 1.63 ERA, Win 3-0
  • Yamamoto was involved in the trade that sent Christian Yelich to Milwaukee. With the Brewers, the 12th round draft choice in 2014, proved that he could be a durable rotational arm. The 6’0″ 185 lb right-hander threw 245.1 innings over two seasons between LoA and HiA. He was also known as a strike thrower in amassing 265 K’s in that body of work. Last night, against Atlanta’s Fire Frogs, the Hawaii native marked a new career-high with 13 strikeouts. Expect more of the same from Yamamoto, as he is just getting back to speed after spending time in extended Spring Training rehabbing a shoulder injury.
RHP Adonis Rosa (HiA Tampa – New York Yankees) 18 years old
6 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 3.18 ERA, Win 7-1
  • Rosa is another under the radar arm that could suddenly breakout. Its unsure how the Yankees want to utilize him fulltime, as his appearances are almost an even split between starting and the bullpen. Rosa is very stingy on offering the free pass. Over 5 season, the 6’1″ 160 lb righty has complied a 1.7 BB/9 rate in 346 innings and a very respectable 4.68 K/BB ratio. His fastball and change-up are MLB-ready which would get him to the Bronx bullpen quickly, but further development of his curve would make his a solid back-end type.
RHP Jose Perez (DSL Phillies – Philadelphia) 19 years old
6 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 K, 2.57 ERA, Win 1-0
Rookie Leagues: Includes GCL, AZL, Appy, Pioneer, Short-Season
RHP Adrian Alcantara (AZL Royals – Kansas City) 18 years old
5 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 1.80 ERA, Win 1-0
No Games Scheduled = All-Star Break
RHP Luis Escobar (Bradenton – Pittsburgh) 22 years old
6 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, 4.06 ERA, Win 5-5

Top Relief Pitcher Performance
RHP Grant Dyer (HiA Clearwater – Philadelphia) 22 years old
2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER,  0 BB, 3 K, 0.00 ERA
  • Dyer coming back after missing the 2017 season
RHP Noel De Jesus (Appy League Johnson City – St Louis) 21 years old
7 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 0.00 ERA, Win 1-0
