April 19, 2019 – Under the Radar Pitcher Performances

 
TOP NL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE
 
RHP Cole Stapler  (HiA Visalia – Arizona) 24 year old
7 IP, 5 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 9 K, 1.00 ERA, Win 2-1
  • Cole Stapler’s command and control were on display last night. The 22nd round pick in 2017 sets a career-high with 9 strikeouts in seven innings. Its only the second time that Stapler has gone 7 innings over his pro career. The 6′ 4″ 240 lb right-hander hasn’t allowed a walk thus far in three starts (18 IP). He currently holds a 2-1 record with a 1.00 ERA (2 ER) and sub-1.00 WHIP. In his third season, Stapler has posted a 1.175 WHIP, 1.7 BB9 / 9.0 K9 rates in 152.1 innings.

TOP AL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE

RHP Luis Gil (LoA Charleston  – New York Yankees) 21 years old
5 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 9 K, 1.46 ERA
  • Projected as the Yankees closer of the future, Luis Gil is earning his innings as a starter. The Dominican fireballer whiffed 9 hitters over 5 innings last night. Gil is destined for the bullpen because he has difficulty keeping his delivery in sync and commanding his pitches. Though he holds K9 rates north of 13.0, Gil struggles in the zone with a 6.2 BB9 rate in 123.1 career innings. The fastball is the calling card for Gil, in a explosive 4-seamer that can touch triple-digits. He also possesses a power curveball with a spin rate that’s off the charts.
