Ricky had the one terrific start this week. 8 innings, just 3 hits, 1 earned. He was great.
One awful start and he was set down, I should have a bigger down arrow.
He gets called up from Double-A, gives us 7 strong innings, I think an up arrow is appropriate. Or course, whether it was good pitching or just a bad Oriole offense is up in the air yet, but he has gotta feel good.
Of the three starters that went up against the Red Sox, Jo-Jo did the best job, which is sort of like picking out the best Bryan Adams album. He had a rough time, 8 hits, 4 earned in 6.1 innings.
An awful start against the Red Sox, 4.1 innings, 10 hits, 8 earned runs and 3 walks.
|He pitched in 4 games. He did a great job last night, coming in with the bases loaded and no outs and getting out the inning without allowing any more runs. In total 4 innings, 6 hits, 1 earned, 1 walk and 3 k.|
|Only pitched in 1 game, which considering the series against the Red Sox surprises me. He pitched 1 inning, gave up 2 hits, hit a batter, and gave up a run. With Janssen on the DL, we might see more of him. Oh joy.|
|3 games, faced 12 batters, gave up 3 hits, single, double, homer, walked 1 and allowed a sac fly. He gave up 3 earned runs, all of them in the game against the Red Sox.|
|Pitched in 2 games, one that went really bad, against the Red Sox (of course) and one that was good, striking out the side against the Orioles. And on to the DL he goes.|
|Jon was in 4 games, 2 that went bad and 2 that went well. He took the loss yesterday, giving up 2 hits and 2 earned without getting an out. Betters hit .353/.389/.588 against him this week.|
|Another tough week. I tend to blame the Oriole game on Farrell. He pitched in two games, the Oriole one which was bad. In the other he was one of the few to have a good inning against the Red Sox, 1 inning, 1 hit, 2 strikeouts.
|He started the game against the Orioles the other day and was ok, 6 innings, 3 earned, 7 hits, 2 walks and 3 k. I think we might be wanting to put him back into the long reliever job soon. As a starter batters have hit .264/.306/.382 against him, as a reliever they he .132/.230/.224. Maybe when Jesse comes back.|
|He pitched in 3 games, didn't allow a run and picked up a save. In 2.2 innings, he gave up 2 hits, 2 walks and struck out 4. A pretty good week really|
|Luis Perez||3 games for Luis this week, 1 went well, two went very bad. He pitched a good 1.2 against the Red Sox last Friday, but on Sunday he allowed 4 earned off 5 hits, 1 walk, 2 k and then last night he gave up a hit and a walk without getting an out. ERA of 12.00 for the week.|
|In 6 games hit hit .429/.500/.952, pretty good. 5 runs and 5 RBI.
|.278/.350/.556. He had a good week. I'm hoping that this is the start to good things for the rest of the season, but it might just be a good week.
|Escobar was in 5 of the 6 games this week. He hit .300/.391/.450, so I'm guessing there aren't any lingering effects from his injury. He had a home run and 3 walks.|
|Played in 5 of the 6 games, after a couple of good weeks, he has a down one. .188/.235/..375. He had 1 home run.|
|He isn't having the best of months, this week .200/.222/.200. He scored 1 run, drove in 1, took 1 walk, 1 sac bunt and stole 1 base. I'm still of the same opinion I was at the start of the season, Corey is fine as a 4th outfielder, more than that is asking too much.
|Another one that had a bad week, he looks really lost at the plate. Speed is a great thing and all, but you gotta get on base some. .136/.136/.181. No stolen bases, no runs, 2 RBI. He did reach base on an error once.|
|At least he had a home run this week. Hit .158/.360/.316. He had 3 runs and 3 RBI. June hasn't been great to Jose.
|He played in 4 of the 6 games, started 2, pinch hit in two. He had the good game, against the Orioles, going 3 for 4 with a double and a homer. Hit .333/.300/.778 on the week.|
|He is back tonight.|
|Nix started all 6 games this week. He hit .100/.143/.100. He did score 2 runs and stole a base. Please let McCoy play 3rd some.|
|Played his usual 2 games this week.He was 0 for 5 but did take 2 walks and scored a run. He got thrown out of yesterday's game.|
|He made it through a whole week without having to fly to or from Vegas, that should be considered a victory. He played in 3 games, starting 2. Only 1 hit in 9 at bats. .111/.111/.222. Please get healthy in a hurry Brett.|
