–Its time to start paying significant attention to Tyler Cloyd. In his 8 starts between Reading and Lehigh Valley, Cloyd is 7-0 with a 1.24 ERA. Opponents are hitting just .194 against him. His stats are actually significantly better for Lehigh Valley then for Reading, although still excellent during his time in Reading. Most impressively, during his time with the ‘Pigs, hitters are just .067 against him with RISP.
–Another week on the hot list for Scott Elarton…could his time be coming with a lousy start by Kendrick today?
–The concern about Brody Colvin should be reaching is apex. Very troubling start. Hit around and terrible command.
–”Continued success” for Darin Ruf , Cody Asche and Cesar Hernandez this week.
–Tyson Gillies has fallen below the .250 mark on the year with his struggles this week.
