Greeneville Report - The Pitchers - June 2012

We have seen what the hitters looked like, let's take a look at the pitchers.  We will look at the top starters and relievers.


I really like the game score stat. So I will use that as the primary tool to evaluate the starters.  However one of the limitations is that some of the starters are still being stretched out so they won't go as long in games as others and that limits their scoring potential in this formula.

Adrian Houser - Three Starts - Average Game Score (47).  Houser had both the high and the low game score for the G-Stros in June.  He bounced back from an 11 to score a 74 in his final start of the month.  The 74 game score was the highest on the team thus far this season.

Richard Ramirez - Three Starts - Average Game Score (59).  Very consistent month with game scores of 61, 57, and 59 in his three starts. Ramirez is second in the league in strikeouts (22 in 17 IP), and ninth in WHIP (1.06).

Francis Ramirez -Two Starts - Average Game Score (49.5).  Even though June wasn't spectacular, F-Ram has started July with a game score with a 70 in his start on Sunday.

Keep an eye on Daniel Minor who earned a game score of 60 in a three inning start.  It appears they are stretching him out.  He went four innings in his next start with a not as impressive game score of 44.


We get a bit of a larger sample size with relievers in terms of appearances but due to the low inning count, one bad outing can skew the results.  Here are the top thee relievers based on numbers for June.

Mitch Lambson - earned his promotion to Lexington by striking out 12 batters and allowing no base runners in the 9 2/3 innings he pitched in Greeneville.

Jordan Jankowski - is earning the title of team vulture. He already has three wins pitching in relief. In five games, he has 11 strikeouts in 7 1/3 IP. 

Michael Hauschild - has become the closer for Greeneville.  He has finished four games and earned saves in both save opportunities he had in June. He struck out seven in six innings pitched.
