A look at the Starting Pitching for the top half of the organization. Look for the report on the lower half (Lakewood, Williamsport, and GCL at the end of the week)
Brian Bass, 29, 4-5 with a 4.54 ERA in 15 starts; 85.1 IP 97H 33BB 49K; 9 HR allowed, 1.52 WHIP, 2.79 GO/AO; .289 opp. avg., .292 vs. LH, .286 vs. RH; .263 with RISP; Has gone at least 6 innings in each of his last nine starts. The ‘Pigs rotation has been decimated by injury and call ups and Bass has been the one constant. Constant in the sense that he has gone out there every five days. Some good, some bad, and some ugly.
Ryan Feireabend, 25, 5-5 with a 6.24 ERA in 14 starts, 70.2 IP 77H 28BB 48K; 1.11 GO/AO; .280 opp. avg., 1.49 WHIP; 16 HR allowed, .215 vs. LH, .300 vs. RH, .333 with RISP. Getting absolutely crushed by the hone run ball and struggles with RISP. Not a good combination.
Tim Redding, 34, 2 starts, 0-1 with a 3.75 ERA. Went from a free agent two weeks ago to the front of the Lehigh Valley rotation. Capable veteran innings eater.
Ryan Edell, 27, 5-3 with a 4.17 ERA in 14 starts between Reading and Lehigh Valley; 82 IP 93H 13BB 58K; 1.10 GO/AO; 1.29 WHIP; .284 opp. avg., After pitching well in his first 12 starts for Reading, Edell has gotten hit hard both times out for the ‘Pigs.
Tyson Brummett, 26, 2-5 with a 3.48 ERA; 24 games (5 starts) between Reading and Lehigh Valley; 62IP 62H 22BB 47K 1.35 WHIP; 1.68 GO/AO; .261 opp. avg., Has done about as well as someone without overpowering stuff can bouncing between Reading and Lehigh Valley and the bullpen to the rotation.
Austin Hyatt, 25, 6-5 with a 4.38 ERA in 15 starts; 84.1IP 72H 31BB 93K, 1.22 WHIP; 13 HR allowed, 0.70 GO/AO; .230 opp. avg., .173 vs. LH, .272 vs. RH, .215 with RISP. Hyatt has been generally effective and when he struggles, it is the HR ball that gets him in trouble.
JC Ramirez, 22, 5-7 with a 4.11 ERA in 13 starts; 72.1 IP 66H 26BB 31K; 0.63 GO/AO; .241 opp. avg., 1.27 WHIP; 6 HR allowed, .240 vs. LH, .241 vs. RH, .290 with RISP; 0-4 with a 7.85 ERA in June. The Phils have been teaching him to “pitch to contact” and alot of contact it has been in June. After a great start, he has been quite pedestrian since.
BJ Rosenberg, 25, 2-3 with a 4.42 ERA in 19 games (8 starts); 59IP 63H 17BB 55K; 1.36 WHIP; 1.09 GO/AO; .280 opp. avg., 4 HR allowed, 2-3 with a 5.72 ERA in 8 starts; .304 vs. LH, .257 vs. RH, .274 with RISP. After several good starts, Rosenberg got crushed his last time out. (0.1IP 7ER)
Tyler Cloyd, 24, 4-2 with a 2.76 ERA; 18 games 9 starts between CLearwater and Reading; 65.1 IP 56H 9BB 62K;0.99 WHIP; 1.25 GO/AO; .229 opp. avg., 1-1 with a 2.77 ERA in 5 games (4 starts) for Reading. With possibly the best command in the organization, Cloyd is putting it together this year.
Joe Esposito, 26, 2-2 with a 3.20 ERA; 22 games, 3 starts between Clearwater and Reading; 50.2IP 45H 25BB 43K; 1.38 WHIP; 0.67 GO/AO; .249 opp. avg., Esposito has pitched well in the many different roles asked of him this year.
Brody Colvin, 20, 0-3 with a 4.47 ERA in 10 starts; 50.1IP 52H 21BB 36K; 1.45 WHIP; 1.67 GO/AO; .267 opp. avg., .250 vs. LH, .284 vs. RH, .184 with RISP. Colvin had back issues at the beginning of the year and is not all the way back to what we expected his year to be. Looking for a better second half.
Jarred Cosart, 21, 6-5 with a 3.15 ERA in 14 starts; 80IP 63H 33BB 63K; 1.20 WHIP; 1.75 GO/AO; .218 opp., .187 vs. LH, .254 vs RH, .231 with RISP. Maybe not quite as overpowering as I thought he would be this year, but very, very good.
Trevor May, 21, 4-4 with a 3.23 ERA in 14 starts; 78IP 57H 38BB 102K; 1.21 WHIP; 0.70 GO/AO; .206 opp. avg., .235 vs. LH, .177 vs. RH, .265 with RISP. He has limited the occasions during which he has struggled with his control and has overpowered the opposition on several occasions, including his last start.
Jon Pettibone, 20, 7-4 with a 2.80 ERA in 14 starts; 83.2IP 80H 20H 63K; 1.19 WHIP; 0.99 GO/AO; .257 opp. avg., .250 vs. LH, .265 vs. RH, .253 with RISP; 2-1 with a 5.73 ERA in 4 June starts. Has been excellent this year, albeit with a somewhat bumpy stretch in June.
Julio Rdoriguez, 8-5 with a 3.33 ERA in 14 starts; 78.1 IP 54H 37BB 70K; 0.56 GO/AO; .198 opp. avg., 1.16 WHIP; 6 HR allowed, .221 vs. LH, .173 vs. RH, .203 with RISP; 2-2 with a 5.87 ERA in 4 June starts. See Pettibone comments.
