April 13, 2019 – Under the Radar Pitcher Performances

 
TOP NL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE
 
LHP  Kyle Young (HiA Clearwater – Philadelphia) 21 year old
6 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 10 K, 2.70 ERA, Loss 0-2
  • Young has been the hard-luck loser over his two starts. Lack of run support by the Threshers despite the 22nd round pick (2016) throwing strong outings. In his first two starts, the right-hander has allowed 3 earned runs in 10 innings and 13 strikeouts, with ten last night, nearly missing his career-high (11). Only 21 years-old and standing almost seven-foot tall (6′ 10″), Young is progressing through the Phillies system, posting a 3.18 ERA and a 5.70 K/BB ratio in 161.1 innings over four seasons. Young is still raw though, but already shows solid mechanics and coordination for a very tall righty.

TOP AL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE

LHP Konnor Pilkington (LoA Kannapolis – Chicago White Sox) 21 years old
6 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 8 K, 0.77 ERA
  • The 3rd round pick from 2018 didn’t enjoy a pro debut where he posted a 7.07 ERA in only 14 innings. It’s just a small sample, but the White Sox are hoping for big things from 6′ 3 ” 225 lb left-hander. Pilkington came out of Mississippi State and was on the USA Baseball’s 2017 National Collegiate Team.

LoA Mentions – Starters
 
RHP Kevin Gowdy (LoA Lakewood – Philadelphia) 21 years old
4 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 7 K, 2.57 ERA
  • Gowdy is back on the mound after missing the 2017 & 2018 seasons.
RHP Shane McCarthy (LoA Lake County – Cleveland) 22 years old
5 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 9 K, 1.80 ERA, Win 1-1
 
RHP Brad Case (LoA Greensboro – Pittsburgh) 22 years old
6 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 7 K, 0.77 ERA, Win 1-0
 
RHP Josh Winder (LoA Cedar Rapids – Minnesota) 22 years old
5 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 9 K, 2.70 ERA
 
RHP Erin Baldwin (LoA Kane County – Arizona) 22 years old
4 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 2.08 ERA
 

HiA Mentions – Starters
 
RHP Xavier Altamirano (HiA Stockton – Oakland) 24 years old
6 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 5.00 ERA, Win 1-1
  • A “Legit UTR”, Altamirano was a back to back UTR Organizational All-Star in 2018 & 2017 and the Mariners 2017 UTR pre-season “One to Watch”.
 
RHP Turner Larkins (HiA Dunedin – Toronto) 23 years old
5 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 0.82 ERA, Loss 1-1
 
LHP Juan Hillman (HiA Lynchburg – Cleveland) 22 years old
6 P, 4 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 0.00 ERA, Loss 1-1
  • Yes….Hillman takes the loss because of 4 unearned runs. The 2018 UTR Organizational All-Star has pitched 12 innings (2 starts) without allowing an earned run.
RHP Jordan Holloway (HiA Jupiter -Miami) 23 years old
6 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 8 K, 2.00 ERA
 

 
National League – Relief
 
RHP Jean Cosme (HiA Lake Elsinore – San Diego) 22 years old
2 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, 4.50 ERA
  • Cosme was my Padres pre-season 2017  “One to Watch” after a successful full season at Fort Wayne. He only saw 23 innings at Lake Elsinore that season and languished in the rookie league last season.
 
American League – Relief
 
RHP Gray Fenter (LoA Delmarva – Baltimore) 23 years old
 4 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 8 K, 1.00 ERA
