Four Pitchers off to Great Starts

As I did a few days go with four batters off to hot pro starts, let’s take a look at four pitchers who have done the same!

  • Abraham Almonte (Strasburg 16) was drafted in the 26th round this June by the Arizona Diamondbacks, after wowing the Valley League with strikeouts out of the bullpen for the Express last summer. He’s pitched in 5 games so far for Missoula in the Pioneer League, and is 0-0, 0.00, with 2 hits, 0 walks, and 8 strikeouts in 5 innings (and 3 saves).
  • Garrett Cave (Staunton 15) was nabbed in the 4th round by the Giants. He’s 0-0, 0.00 after appearing in 3 games, with 2 hits, 1 walk, and 6 strikeouts in 4 innings (1 save). He was assigned to Salem-Keizer of the Northwest League.
  • Reed Hayes is in the Orioles’ system after being picked in the 13th inning out of Vanderbilt. They sent the 2015 Staunton Brave to Aberdeen of the New York-Penn League, where he is 1-0, 0.00, with 2 hits, 0 walks, and 3 strikeouts in 3 innings (2 saves, too).
  • Walter Borkovich (Staunton 15) was signed as an undrafted free agent in June by the Braves. Assigned to the Gulf Coast League, Walter has thrown 4 shutout innings while allowing 4 hits, 1 walk, and 1 strikeout.

Keep it up, guys!
