April 17, 2019 – Under the Radar Pitcher Performances

 
TOP NL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE
 
RHP Perry DellaValle  (HiA Palm Beach – St Louis) 23 year old
8 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 8 K, 2.60 ERA
  • DellaValle is another name to add the small school draftee’s off to a terrific start in their first full season. Taken in the 27th round from the PSAC’s Seton Hill, just down route 22 from me in Greensburg (PA), the Ohio native posted a 1.32 FIP, which was the best by any pitcher at any level of baseball in his pro debut last season in the GCL. At Seton Hill, the 6′ 0″ 185 lb right-hander set school records with the season best 109 strikeouts in 75.1 innings and the best career 2.43 ERA mark. Not a flashy type at all, DellaValle carries a 88-92 mph fastball and average potential offspeed stuff, but throws all with excellent command.

TOP AL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE

RHP Joe Ryan (LoA Bowling Green – Tapa Bay) 22 years old
5 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 12 K, 4.26 ERA, Win 1-1
  • Where are all the pitchers from the traditional NCAA powerhouses? Joe Ryan came to the Rays (7th Rd – 2018) from Division II California State University at Stanislaus. The 6′ 1″ 185 lb righty led the entire NCAA with  127 regular-season strikeouts and was named a second-team National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association All-American selection in 2018. He set an early career-high with 12 K’s last night. He had 51 strikeouts last season in 36.1 innings in 12 appearances with 7 starts.
