Prospect Roundup

Since I just added Andrew Brackman to our Peep this Prospect series, it is only right to discuss what he has done so far this year. Keep in mind from our earlier discussion that the BBs are important, as are the Ks. Those are really the numbers I'm looking at when I'm evaluating prospects this year - ability to keep guys off base, and strike them out.

April 9th: 5 IP, 5H, 5ER, 3BB, 5Ks.

April 15: 5 IP, 4H, 2ER, 2BB, 4Ks.

April 20: 6 IP, 5H, 2ER, 0BB, 8Ks.

On the season: 16IP, 14H, 9ER, 5BB, 17Ks. That's a 5.06 ERa, a K/9 of over 9, and a K/BB ratio of 17/5, or 3.2/1. The reduction of walks is so incredibly huge for Brackman.

EDIT: Mike Axisa from RAB says that Brackman's 4/20 outing was cut short by rain.
