New Arms of the Week: Last of August

New, 3 comments


Closing out August, and adding a day to the "week", we have four rookie pitchers who debuted in the final week of August.

  • Armando Gabino - threw some long relief made a brief start and was sent back down*
  • Daniel McCutchen - snuck in on the 31st with a start
  • Pedro Strop - hard thrower with two relief appearances
  • Wilton Lopez - three home runs in a four inning relief debut

Here's what they've thrown so far, with the best pitch classifications I can muster with limited samples.

September should be busy, with lots of call-ups. Once the season is over, I'll recap all the rookies and even the position players.
